I was buffering, so I missed the end of O Holy Night, but it must have been good, cause the audience was showing the love!

The First Noel - very tender and reverent.

There you go- Neewland was recognized because according to Careless whisper
Newland21 has had 3 SH M&Gs that I can remember (DC & Baltimore just this month and in New Hampshire during the NAT) plus Clay danced with her during the JNT04 at MSG.

Could we describe taht as "bogarting"the Clay?

Yes and the JNT M&G's are consecutive nights I think...or concerts...and she told him about knowing Allison and he asked her to give a doll to Allison during the show. Clay is very good with faces so he would surely know Newland.

Is it the cellcert or does Clay sound like he is getting a cold? He sounds great but a little mucousy (sp).

Yeah I think he has been having this trouble for a few concerts now...definitely since the christmas break.

wow beautiful ending to TFN!!!! he didn;t power through and what gorgeous vibrato...excellent

Main Entry: bogart1

Part of Speech: verb

Definition: to selfishly take or keep something; hog

Example: She was drunk and bogarted attention at the block party.

Etymology: probably from Humphrey Bogart, US actor

Usage: slang; bogarted, bogarting

I believe this is common terminology with MaryJane AKA weed AKA pot

Ansa -- thanks for asking. I want to know too what "bogarting" is...hee.

Sorry that the cellcert seems to have taken a dive. Damn.

Crap, I bet Faye made Clay wear the infected Santa suit when he was home for Christmas. And the trail of disease and pestilence continues... :unsure:

At least we did not miss the end of Emanuel.

I thought people had said it is the cellcert - people were saying Clay sounded sick over the cell in Raleigh. Actually, people think he is sick over most of the cellcerts.

I call standing O over MDYK

From CB:

cant make out much of anything they are saying now.. pretty muffled.. lots of crowd noise.

.Clay was magnificant in the first half..his voice was awsome..mighty and healthy...just blew me away..cant believe its intermission already..

---

heard them talking about ethel.. dont have a clue why. or if she is there..hair is blonde again and not so spiky

---

think they were talking about reporters being there earlier.. but they are gone now.. didnt even make it to JB..

---

Intermission....Talked to my sister. She says venue is full and is really beautiful. Sound is great.

Small growl in CMH

---

SOCKS ALERT!

RED/WHITE/BROWN or BLACK

HORIZONTAL

---

Talked to caper - I'm sure you all were listening in. Hair is combed over and not at all spiky. Looks blond but it might be the lights.

Maybe 100 empty seats.

She's noticing things she didn't see in NY.

3 security guards are close by so she can't make a lot of adjustments to the laptop. I told her we were all learning a lot about WMP.

Wearing the multi-colored socks - sounded like the DC socks.

---

Cell signal is PERFECT ~ this is probably the best venue for sound.....

Applause for Angel Clay coming out...no dialogue yet... fixing tie, laughter.....Are you looking for someone? You have to narrate!

Per Playbiller:

thiught people had said it is the cellcert - people were saying Clay sounded sick over the cell in Raleigh. Actually, people think he is sick over most of the cellcerts.

That could be possible. He sounded just fine to me in Raleigh although the sound was not as great as in Charlotte.

thanks for the explanation...hee.

hee...Quiana...just followed Clay;s arrangement of MGUCL a bit...went down on hearts. She is singing this more tenderly and playing with the melody too. She is good...but tender Clay...is phenomenal.

Fear...I think when he got to pensacola his voice was really ragged...I thought he was totally cracking and missing out on some of his brilliant tones.

When he got to SC...I thought he was a bit reserved...he sounded better than Pensacola but he didn't give it his all. I thought he was taking care of his voice cos that would be three shows consecutive. In Raleigh I thought he was excellent. His voice was still not 100% as in the beginning of the tour...but his interpretations was inspired. He gave his all that night...it was fantastic.

Right now...I still detect a tightness in his singing...specially in OHN and MCWL. Since this is after a long break, I think his problem this time may be a cold. He is still able to compensate beautifully IMO...

Wow - it's almost 10:45 already.  My bet tonight - No Good News.

How much? I think he will sing it. He's not rushing the intros like he has before.

My question: do people think tomorrow night will be prank city? I'm not sure -- if they do, it will be before DSIAFCD.

From CB:

MDYK. and the crowd expodes in applause and screaming.. sound like he might have messed up the words here a few times hope its the stream..lol.. blind will see deaf will hear.. lamb will leap.. dumb willll speak.. praises of the lambbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb.. major applause.. think i may need cpr after this performance.. the sleeping your holding ..great I ammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...he has wasted me.. completely wasted me. and the crowd on their feet major screaming yelling whooping.. just nuts...wonderful...some one yelled love yea clay..

---

Some people are yelling odd things to him "Have a baby, Clay..." the "I Love You, Clay" ....

Grownups make mistakes, too....

---

someone yelled something couldnt catch it. .but heard somesay for God sakes...so must not have been approporiate..vignette.. now sitting up for quinanna's song.. talking about grown ups make mistakes too..

---

Beverly: "Singing, dancing and now this. You're quite the performer."

Hmmmm I can think of someone else this applies to.

Singing, dancing and now playwriting. And of course being an angel.

Quiana now - MGUCL

---

....somebody is hollering and cellcerter isn't happy....never mind, we hear the piano playing and our magical Clay is directing Beverly to Tommy......Beverly thinks that Christmas is a holiday for EVERYONE and sometimes it takes kids to remind us...

Quianna takes over to finish the circle....MGUCL....for the world in need.....no more lives torn apart...that time will heal our hearts....that right would always win and love would never end....

---

It would make more sense if the yeller said "Have MY baby, Clay.." but that's apparently not what she said.. LIClayLady confirmed she said "Have A baby, Clay..."

WHAT?!

---

Cheering for Mr. Ledford......

Everyone would have a prayer..

Right would always win

Love would never end...

This is my grown up Christmas wish.....

Big cheering for Quianna!!!!

GOOD FOR HER!

Recorded message.....CHANGING TIME>...

---

crowd really enjoying quianna. amazing job.. crowd applauding and screaming....she blew it out of the water tongith.. this whole concert is a definate download.. most powerful yet...now pre recording from clay..

---

OMG.. he set one foot on stage and the earth opened up.. crowd is nuts.....merry christmashe has to be floating on air.. draped in black.. laced with charm and sex appeal.. blessed with the gift of voice talent and love...

---

He's coming back out... Lots of WOW! KILL ME NOW! Yells!

LOL

Talking about coming back here after last year, and come back again tomorrow night.

Been an amazing time with all of the hard workers who put this show together.

Some have worked with him for several years, so deserve a medal...

Learned a lot about family....

Can be with family even if people you are not related to..

Introducing band....

---

We make this joyful noise for you!

And here he is!

Says how wonderful it is to come back to a city they were in last year.

Inviting them to come back tomorrow night for the last show.

Talks about how some of the crew deserves a medal for being with him 2 years.

He's thrilled to call them family - and segues into intoductions.

---

if you want to come back tomorrow night we will be here again.. work extremely hard to make this show what it is.. worked with a lot of these people for the past 2 years.. we learned that often times.. family not just people you are related to.. chicago lo.. flex..daniel...crowd showing their love...lost connection..

---

....often times you can be with family even though you are not around the people you are related to.....usual talk and saying how nice it is to be rounding up the tour in a city they were in last year....

ah, nooooo, I lost my stream...

---

Hear that the dancers are being introduced, but lots of love coming from the audience, so I can't make out who he is introducing

Another round of applause....

Very professional and mature: Gregory Ellis!

He is mumbling something, but everyone is giggling...

Story behind MCWL and Beverly, so he had to bring the person who introduced the song to him in 9th grade... Allison!

I can't hear my stream right now, so I'll take this opportunity to do what Clay is probably instructing the audience to do - offering hugs to those around you. So these ((((HUGS)))) are for all of you down there at the bottom of the page:

From CH:

Clay invited everyone back tomorrow night.

"A few people on the stage have been putting up with me for 2.5 years."

"This Christmas was not only special for Andy because he got to spend it with us -and isn't that enough for anyone- but he got to spend it with his new baby."
