The cellcerter is at the side of the stage way over at one side and there is a wall of some kind that is going to be blocking their view... the stadium is about half full but there is a lot of seating area.. it isn't really very hot so that is good.

The area is very rural, lots of horses and the horse smell.

They are playing Earth Angel as background music...

The guess is that it is not starting on time since it is after 7:30... there is a lady with a video camera behind her who asked her if she was cellcerting.

She wants to take video.

There are people from CB there.

There is a guy in the front row near them who could do the whole thing about being dragged here, because he was. Cellcerter hopes they pick him.

There are a bunch of men there, but more women.

-----

It is starting. They are looking for quarter.

Insane cheers starting now!

He saw someone looking for a friend and he said "what are you doing? who are you looking for? who? DEBBIE? then he shouted out "DEBBIE?" Very funny

cellstream kinda scratchy tonight. Of course that means everybody is getting a nice and clear one. I seem to always be the opposite of everybody else for some weird reason.

guy has a Iron Maiden T-shirt on -- lol

can't really hear what they're saying but it sounds funny

getting him backstage

-----

Said, you having fun out there?

Asking about the gentlemen who don't want to be there.

HUGE laughter after about a minute!

I think he's saying something about "please say you don't have..." - couldn't tell how that ended but there are and have continued to be insane screams for at least 30 seconds!

Still bantering

-----

He's got them rolling in the aisles!

Found a guy. Wife or SO name is Becky. Can't tell anything else yet.

-----

lots and lots of laughing -- he's just going on and on

guess he's got a couple onstage -- from Columbus, Ohio

going on about Iron Maiden -- maybe he thought he was going to see them?

-----

ANMHE

According to half time report...Clay looks and sounds good. The guy picked to dance was tricked into coming ...drove 4 hours to go see Iron Maiden..but instead got Clay Aiken.

Turns out he's a ringer...son of somebody at Clayversity but it was funny and played well to the crowd.

Sailing. Met by some squeals further back in the venue, it sounded like.

-----

Some little note changes at the line about miracles. Very nice.

Applause and some screams. Piano, etc. now. So pretty.

-----

Can't touch this

-----

Fashion mistakes, bright colors, church outfit-spandex

Dances in the '90's Reebok

Clay trying to do one of the dances. Stop lloking at me like that, Jacob. Curiousgladys just said oh, my goodness.

-----

90's banter and Can't Touch That - this is what we wore in the 1990's. Big fashion mistake. Bright colors. (Still muffled.) Quite a bit of laughter. Now a lot of laughter! Something about they don't work together (I think), then big laughter. Now huge laughter and screams!

These are the 1990's

Black Velvet, met by some screams.

-----

Clarence, Barry White type voice delivery

Jacob - EOTR, improvised a little on several notes - didn't care for it, myself.

Clay - WHOA - wailing, emoting, passion; what a glorious voice on this.

-----

EOTR

Break down and cry-beautiful

I wish I could type better

Iris

I just want you to know who I am

Screams

LLVL!

and more screams

ooh love he sang candlelight

crowd singing along

and screaming

-----

LLVL

Mega screams now!

in to superstition

black cats and voodoo dolls

girl gonna make me fall

cheers at first dancy part

BIG cheers at 'take clothes off and dance in rain' lines

The notes on the final 'living la vida loca' line sounded a little different tonight. Maybe not quite as strong - wait for download!!

-----

ICMYLM

-----

Piano prior to piano part for ICMYLM

turn down these voices inside my head

tell me no lies

don't patronize (again, the phone couldn't pick up the low note "me"; don't know why)

This is gorgeous again tonight.

-----

I don't know if it's just my connection, but the piano in ICMYLM sounds rather overwhelming tonight. Clay sounds wonderful from what I can hear.

I love how this song is evolving. He's put a lot of work into this.

beautiful, just beautiful

Major screams, biggest screams of the night

-----

Note rise during "feel" before the 'you're holdin me' line; also, a couple of other little note changes in the next couple of lines.

Oh my, how plaintive that first "give up the fight" was, and continuing on.

You can't make your heart feel (note change)

I will lay down my heart (OMG!)

I CANNOT describe the level of passion, heartbreak, hurting in the last verse of tihs song. UNBELIEVABLE. This will be another "must-have" download.

Cheers after Clay's performance.

Now, Quiana, IWALY

-----

Band intro

-----

Can't tell much of what he's saying but he has them rolling in the aisles during this. Then said Maureen's name in her intro, so we need to listen at that point in the d/l!

-----

Clay is talking about hats.. to the band...somebody has their name on their hat.... said someone "should NOT wear a hat"

-----

I can change all of my clothes in 35 seconds, but I can't sit down when you're singing (to Quiana) Intros. Talking about putting Jacob's URl on the fan site. Are you S'von or Clarence? Clay's lame joke.

(curiousgladys) They are videotaping the show something something

Much talk about hats.

80's and 90's get most cheers for favorite segments.

-----

Talking about the different decades. They liked the 1960's. Motown, they liked Motown. What about the 70s'? 80's?

2000's - tell me some of your favorites songs

2001 wasn't too good either

2002 didn't really do anything for me

2003 - HUGE CHEERS!!

Now IWCY

WHOA! He's soaring on these words and notes! SOOOOOOOOOO gorgeous. (Ok, I'm a broken record.)

Now to The Way, met by screams across the audience.

-----

You feel it in the way. Big cheers.

WYSYLM - No problem with the lyrics tonight! Intermittent cheers!

Wonderful low note on 'everybody "here" ' (the 'here')

Baby say you love me - cheers, applause, etc.

Talking again now.

-----

Sounds like we are getting Stump the Band again

-----

Wondering how long someone can hold their arms up in the air... everyone waiting to see...

He is going to take requests.. stump the band?

-----

I think he just said something about Touch.

Sounds like he may be doing Stump the Band

It is the Jukebox Tour, at a few shows letting the audience pick a song. Song out there we didn't do and you didn't make a sign for it -

(Personally, I'm hoping for WAMLAW!)

Lots of frantic screaming, excitement.

Something about an REO Speedwagon song (I think).

-----

he said there weren't enough signs to get him to sing Touch -- challenge ??

-----

HUGE screams. Can't make out the talking but his voice is quite animated and he's talking about 1,000 miles a second. More screams, WHOA!

-----

Raise your hand... if you have one.. I can't do a song that I don't know....

Some one is suggesting one that he doesn't know says "I can't sing a not but I can tuna fish"

-----

The screams in response were OFF THE CHART!

Then he talked some more, couldn't understand a thing!

1000 Days

Still shaking!

And I keep saying "oh lord"

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

-----

He just sang a few lines of it and then said,, that's it the end of the song....

-----

It sounded great (WAMLAW)...lots of green eyed soul. Mmmmmm.

-----

It was gorgeous! There was WAILING. There was PASSION. It sounded like he'd been singing it FOREVER. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!! Cannot wait for the d/l's!!

-----

The screams in response were OFF THE CHART!

Then he talked some more, couldn't understand a thing!

1000 Days

Still shaking!

And I keep saying "oh lord"

-----

1000 Days was great, but I'm still thudding over WAMLAW so I sort of missed it!!!

Even if the video isn't steady of WAMLAW, just bring us the AUDIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now BFM.

Lord, the attendees just have to be wiped out by now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

----

BFM has sounded INCREDIBLE (but I still can't concentrate!)

-----

Invisible

If I was invisible (Whoa - he's soaring!)

I'd make you mine tonight

If hearts were unbreakable (cheers)

I would be the smartest man

If I was invisible (audience singing along)

-----

Audience singing along through all the song, it sounds like. What excitement in the crowd!

He sounds incredible!

-----

Insane screams!! They love them some Clay Aiken in that crowd tonight!

-----

How can he have so much energy at the end of the concert? I'm dead tired just listening.

Band filing out.

It's over.

Great concert
