Thought you were refering to our Angela (couch tomato) there for a second. Can't wait to hear what kind of adventures she got up to this week-end...

Wonder who's going to do the narration in the church tonight? New kid or someone else? I'm always impressed by how still Gregory manages to be when Clay is singing.

Well, since Tommy basically reads the Christmas story straight from the Bible -- I think he'll be fine. He can have the book in front of him.

Whew! First act over!

hee our california Angela...

intermission...Gregory is sick...

little boy seem intimidated but he did a good job.

they modified a lot and skipped a lot...

Beverly was a bit off too...

The lines the little boy did seem really good.

Tommy came in when she was on the phone so all the timing was off...then the stool where the box goes was not where it normally was...so Clay had a hard time putting the box down and missed a line or two...no growly CMH.

the head mics where not really good tonight.

cellcerter...says that the lighting seem really bad tongiht...her first time but she thought he looked like HTE lighting...she thinks some lights are missing.

Christmas serenade...the gym set was taking really long to come out so Beverly had to ad lib to stretch out that time...

socks...red and green christmas socks...

there were definitely three growls..

Talking to a first timer (never seen him live): Love it love it love it. Favorite part was Jingle Bells.

Phone is being passed around, so miscellaneous comments:

Another audience member: "I can't believe someone could look so good and sing so perfectly."

Multi-colored striped socks.

Very, very, pretty tonight. Eyelashes visible from the second row. Hair has a lot of product and is sticking straight up. The lighting effects seem to be slightly off in the venue.

GBB says hi to CV. Scarlett is sitting up front doing her thing. She also recorded WJ tonight.

Stub Hubbers not back yet. We need a foot tapping, looking at the watch emoticon right now.

Cellcerter only noticed about three flashes - ushers were reminding people not to flash, and papers were being handed out.

My friends are sitting in front of the boy's family that took Gregory's place. They said that the rumor is true and that Clay spent the day in the hosiptal with Gregory. The new boy will be in the next show also. I'm not sure that Gregory will be back touring with Clay

Yikes about Gregory, if that is true. And I am a little uneasy about someone sharing Gregory's medical information with strangers...

If you're bored while you're waiting, didi46 has posted a new blog on the OFC. To quote didi as Clay "Semper Fi and Merry Christmas!"

Lights going down for the second half.

Beautiful OHN...he had a different placement for some of the glory notes...much more open...

I think Clay is running on adrenaline right now...

TFN...he is attacking a bit too hard tonight...I think he is trying to make adjustments...its getting better..well he added the vocal flourishes again...beautiful...what an ending...

he really poured his energy to that song...what an ending...

WOw I think Clay is giving his all to the vocal performance right now...its incredible. I'm a little worried he will strain himself but so far it sounds like he is maintaining proper support...

what a performer...

Apparently, Hark / O Come has brought someone near the phone to religion. "That's it - I'm going to church tomorrow!" Hee.

Really strong response to MDYK. Final vignette as the intro to My Grown Up Christmas List plays in the background.
