I'm a little grateful for the shortened banter tonight - someone near the phone has an annoying staccato laugh that's driving me nuts - along with the frequent loud woooing. I keep needing to pull out my earphones.

There seems to be a notion circulating around the boards that he may be under a time limit tonight. Who knows?

talking about OCOCE and how its different from traditional...jesse playing old version...dark version...saying the new one is majestic and hopeful....playing new version

I'm a little grateful for the shortened banter tonight - someone near the phone has an annoying staccato laugh that's driving me nuts - along with the frequent loud woooing. I keep needing to pull out my earphones.

hee is the CV cellcerter near the CH cellcerter cos yeah...the woooing is annoying.

From Ch...

Corabeth whispered earlier that there is a time limit on the concert tonight as per something CLay said.

His voice is spun honey-gold again tonight-- but only more so.

FromCH:

thank you so much for the hartford symphony orchrestra..big response from the audience..honestly tonight between great and excetional.. just great tonight.. encourage you to support he arts . .such talented people..Feb 17 they are performing somewhere..i started in local arts programs.. 2nd table..where did she go.. Julia.. big applause..

TALKING ABOUT BAF....talking about the charities.. and children with disabilities..

About the faster pace: Corabeth whispered on her cellcert that Clay indicated that there is a time limit on the concert tonight? Maybe venue specs?

CB: Talking about Julia Demato at the second table...talking about community arts programs...supporting them...Julia Demato is signing autographs...talking about the BAF that he strted three years ago. Talking about the foundation and what it does...he said he hopes hes done something...cant hear that well right now. Talking about the summer camps in NC and Kansas City...talking about the 3rd/5th graders that he saw yesterday, and the book they wrote... how the baf published it...something about spelling his last name...lots of laughter. now talking about unicef and how he didnt know that much about it before he started working with them. Unicef is the first ones there whenever there is a natural disaster or war torn area...

wow beautiful glory note...

Wonder why he has started to drop the mic at the end of DSIAFCD???

When he did it in Williamsport I really thought it was because he was having trouble with it and now its his thing!

He's doing his thang, man. He's doing his thang! (tm Randy Jackson)

The low part of AIW just keeps getting better and better. Sometimes I think it gets overshandowed by the note, but its rather amazing in and of itself.

At first when I heard he was dropping the mic for the last couple of lines in DSIAFCD, I thought it might have something to do with showcasing the acoustics in those old theaters, but you wouldn't think that the acoustics would be that great in a ballroom. Maybe it is just because he can. A way to demostrate that his voice would carry even without the aid of a mic.

WOW AIW is sounding really great so far...he is really fidning the groove for these high notes...beautiful...so assured and right on the sweet spot of the notes. He has found just the right placement for his voice with DSIAFCD that does not sound screechy or yelly at all...very confident voice...beautiful

its amazing with 4 straight nights how strong his voice was...

According to the CV cellcerter, Clay almost said the F-word!!! :o

heh...

jojoct got everything..even Jerome said he nailed that ...not like this

the word of the day and one person had a dictionary and he got her to bring it up and he was looking for other stuff

the girls with binoculars had green and red stuff on it...

he took it and the stuff fell and he told the girls c'mon and get it but I will run away cos you might be crasy and he did run to the middle of the stage.

when the other side asked him to come to them while singing MDYK he said that this is a song about jedus so you ahve to be self less.

Wonder why this venue had a time restraint?

Any news from the clack gatherers tonight?

they suspect that its because of the unuo for the convention center. I remember its because the venue will ahve to pay the poeple a lot more money if they go over...

he made this woman do the giddy up
