Maybe this is why we are having such a hard time hearing.....

From the CH:

from the cb:

venue threatened all with ejection from venu if they are caught with cell phones, cameras, video. etc.

Cellcerter is really nervous and holding her phone down. Until she did that, the reception was A1. Now not hearing so well.

from dance4me re: last night:

Just let me say this. Screw the haters. They simply cannot take away the respect Clay earned last night in that showroom and nobody can take away the major buzz that was around that Casino this morning from all the employees! They want him back ASAP.

:dancingpickle:

And yeah...he's really doing the flourishes...sounds like he's really into it tonight..

From what I could hear of MCWL, I actually liked this song a little. For some reason, I've never been a big fan of the song---not how he does or doesn't sing it, just the song itself...

Oh..he's singing the chestnuts song, right? hee..

ohmygod. HYAMLC absolutely killed me. He really, really owned it tonight. Powerful flourishes and then a quiet ending. This has become a real favorite for me.

From CH...

"Word of the Day" banter. Clay discussed waking up at 2pm to join the orchestra...there were screams. He admonished the screamers that there is nothing sexy about him waking up, and went into some detail that I couldn't quite make out. Suffice it to say that I don't think he convinced anyone. *g*

I can't make out what the word of the day today is, but someone else is talking now, and she sounds like she knows what she is talking about.

Yeah...go back in and reconnnect. It came back for me.

And he sang the heck out of OCOYF...Lordy, Lordy...the ending...he's got the power tonight... I wish I could understand the banter....so since the venue's being a pain in the arse about phones, cameras, etc.....does that mean we won't get much in the way of video? I wanna see his outfit...and how it fits...and whether anything's hanging out of the fit...

boy, that would make me HAVE a fit! :lol:

From CB:

hyamlc.

Hit that note so strong and pure on "Highest Bow"

interlude now

Now Clay takes it home.

Here we are as the golden days....once more

through the years we all will be together

If the fates allow

Ooooooh, another strong "highest bow" and ends "Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas Now" so sweet and sultry.

Sing it Clay

Crowd erupts again

He's talking and I can't hear him!

PAL laughs at something as he goes into SR. He's having fun with this as he usually does.

Yooo Hooooo

Giddy Up Giddy Up Let's Go!!!!

Clayboard having problems and timing out on me! :bluesniff

Watch the chestnuts Pop....pop pop pop

Picture print from Currier and Ives

Just hear those sleighbells jingle....lovely weather for a sleighride together with you......

Sleighride together with you!!!! (did he pick another one out of the audience to ride with??? ONly time will tell)

Now he's talking and I ain't hearing. Crowd laughing but a woman is talking! Whatever she said the crowd erupted.

Binocular talk again but I can't make it out

Talking about the word of the day again.

I hear PAL telling him whatever it is means "go louder"

they did crescendo before. Tonight's word is "something" I can't tell and Jaimie brings it out

Something about "starting out soft and going up!" oooh la la I think he just realized what he said! Crowd erupted! :laugh

Must be the conductor talking cuz some woman that seems to know what she's talking about is speaking! :laugh

Crowd erupts again. Wish I knew what about

Now they are playing an example of the word of the day

Clay thanks them

Intro'd somebody from NJ

Oh, he just called somebody out for talking on the phone while he's giving a concert and people paid good money! :laugh

Folks erupting again

Asked somebody their name in audience. It's a cellcerter!

Found out word of the day is "fortondo"???

Now MDYK

Sooo soft and sweet as our angel sings to us

He nailed "Praises of the Lammmmmmmmmmmmmmmb"

Great Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Ammmmmmmmmm. Oooooooooooooooooh

Crowd erupts in applause. Man, they are giving him the love and shouting and clapping!

HTYAS/OCAYF

MDYK

MDYK... sounded wonderful..might have changed a few lines.. not sure..

A group of children with disabilities were there last night. When we were leaving, they showed us the pictures they had taken with Clay backstage earlier. They were in heaven seeing him! The pictures I saw were individual close-up shots of each child with him. Perhaps some were group shots - I don't know. They were in individual cardboard photo cards. TS must have been involved in arranging the photographer?

from CH:

Okay, according to pax, CB is reporting he described the word of the day as something that starts out really soft then goes UP.

Crowd kind of reacted to that. Ahem.

OCOCE...
