I don't know if anybody else noticed it, but did you see that Bing's ears are as big as Clay's are?  *G*  I think its probably an omen.  Bing was huge, and had big ears.  Fred Astaire, big ears.  HUGE.  Clay, big ears.  hehehehe... he's gonna be an icon.  *VBS*


Misha, don't forget Frank... :mrgreen:

Hey y'all who are fans of the Clay/Bing duet.  Apparently there is a Bing Crosby fan message board HERE.

I thought these posts were very interesting and very much an honor to Clay:

I very much liked Clay Aiken and his voice when my thirteen year old daughter got me to watch him last year on American Idol, and I was thrilled to see his duet with Uncle Bing last night on the Christmas special. It was fabulous. I would like to add my echo to all those who are now clamoring for a video and CD release of this magnificent effort. I'm sure it will be a huge hit....who knows, maybe even Number 39?


Also from Greg Van Beek (Bing Message Board):
Quote
Originally, they wanted to have Clay sing "White Christmas" with Bing, but then asked if Bing ever sang "Little Drummer Boy" besides the version with David Bowie. I told him about the version from the '62 X-mas special-- the ONLY other video available of Bing performing the song-- so they were thrilled. They didn't know about this '62 version, and neither did Bob Deflores. When Clay learned of this, he immediately wanted to do Drummer Boy instead of White Christmas!



And this from someone else:

Quote
Full credit must go to the producer of the show, Gary Tellalian, who initially had the idea and made this (the duet) happen, as well as Bob Deflores and Ron Hall who worked very hard on this under hurried circumstances. Their enthusiasm and belief in this project helped to bring Bing Crosby yet another Christmas classic.

For the benefit of some of Clay's fans who may not be aware, Bing presented a Christmas show or "special" every year for 43 consecutive years, starting on radio in 1934, and continuing until the last TV special with David Bowie, taped 5 weeks before his death in 1977. He only performed Little Drummer Boy twice on television. The first time was in 1962 (the clip used with Clay), which was really his first full blown TV Christmas special, and the last time with Bowie in 1977.

Since I don't work in the television industry, I'm really not the one to ask about "basic knowledge about the TV industry and how such a request to get this duet on other networks actually works--the politics, etc." as I know very little about it myself. What I do know, is that TV networks typically issue press kits and/or press releases for their shows to the news media, which is what I believe has been provided to ET, Extra, Access Hollywood, etc.

If you'd like to see this "event" covered on news programs on other networks like CBS, NBC, & ABC, I would suggest writing to the specific shows via their websites, such as the Today Show on NBC or Good Morning America on ABC or the Early Show on CBS. If you bring it to their attention, it just might generate enough interest to merit them doing a story on it.

Misha-  I watched OMC's performance several times, each time focusing on a different part of his face.  I definitely noticed the ear similiarity and glad that I wasn't the only one.

I was, once again, moved by Clay,s wonderful performance.

At 48, I am finding myself doing things I would never before have dreamed of doing....following someones career, stayng on the computer researching for hours. and becoming a classic fanatic through and through.  But one can not help themselves ehen it comes to this remarkable young man.

I see Clay becoming more and more at ease with whatever comes his way...his little acting skit was so warm and realistic, his style of dress, classic and tastelful ( so handsome you want to eat him up) and the performance fabulous! ( Love this style of singing best of all) What an honor...to sing with Bing...that certainly is BIG time.

I hope to see Clay in his own special one day soon.  This young man can do it all.  I thought he did a wonderful job on the AI holiday special...he was quite the MC with such a cute sense of humor.
To change the subject for a moment......
Does anyone know if there are plans for Clay to recored Unchained Melody?  When he preformed it on AI, I was thrilled.  I thought it to be better than the original which had always been my alltime favorite.  Also, this is his Mom's favorite song.....so I'm hoping!!!!!

Together for Clay,
Susan

I thought Clay looked as if he could have been Bing Crosby's grandson!  They really looked a lot alike! I wondered if they put Clay in a tux to emphasize that!

Bing materializing was a little on the creepy side. I have to believe that in this day and age that could have been done better!

But Clay!  His voice was absolutely angelic!  I LOVED the David Bowie/Bing Crosby version of that song.  It is the one and only Christmas song I can actually hear over and over again.  The only reason I still prefer that one to this Clay/Bing version one is that the interaction between the two singers in the Bowie/Crosby version is very special, and of course you can't have that with poor old Bing dead!  Clay was at a distinct disadvantage!  But Clay's voice was so beautiful!  I don't particularly like Christmas records, but Clay NEEDS to make one and that is one I will most definitely buy! 

And Clay in a tux!!!!!  Yum yum!!!!!!!

Susan - about Unchained Melody, the problem is that Justin Guarini (?), who you might know just got dumped from RCA Records, recorded it on his debut album, unfortunately.  So I don't think that Clay is going to want to record it anytime soon.  Also, I think, except for Solitaire, which as I'm sure you know is being released with the Invisible single on Dec 16th, I think that Clay, at least for now, is staying away from AI type redos, and is singing original music, so as not to peg himself as the kind of singer as he was seen as being on AI.  However, I can see him eventually making an album with Unchained Melody and other such music sometime in the future when he's more established and when Justin Guarini's album is long forgotten.

What the heck happened to the Christmas special.  I got my VCR all set and turned on Nick at 11:00 and Roseanne was on.  I thought I was going to get to see Clay again.  I was looking forward to it.  I did make two tapes of the last time it was on but I gave one to my aunt and one to a friend, neither of them gets Nick at Nite.  So I put in my tape and got all ready to watch Clay over and over again tonight.  Then nothing.  Does anyone know why it wasn't on.  I'm really bummed out!
