Part 5 in Retrospective Series

Memorable Walk Down Broadway

"Knights on Broadway," Part 5 of SueReu's retrospective series of Clay Aiken montages, spotlights special performances by the singer with Heather Headley and Hannah Waddington, as well as his stint in the hit musical, "Spamalot."

Among the highlights are "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," duet with Heather Headley, Broadway Cares, May 24, 2004; the Easter Bonnet Competition, duet with Heather Waddingham, April 29, 2008; "Home," Broadway Backwards, Feb. 7, 2011, video by Scarlett; and a variety of "Spamalot" scenes/songs as Sir Robin, Brother Maynard, and guard.

Who can forget the shy Robin predicting he would become the "Idol of his Age"? The clips SueReu merged also showcase the singer's extraordinary vocal range, his dramatic but forgettable piano technique, the Russian bottle dance, and such memorable tunes as "Find Your Grail," "He Is Not Dead Yet," "You Won't Succeed on Broadway," and "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."

Caro - great blog! Love the graphics by AmazingCA and cindilu2 - they are so incredibly talented.

Clay did such an amazing job in Spamalot (and everything else he touches). Can't wait to see what's next (well, after Drop Dead Diva)!!

Thanks for putting my video up, and have a great week!

Enjoyed the walk down memory lane for Clay's appearances on Broadway. Spamalot was so much fun and brings back so many memories of fun times. As usual nice graphics and SueReu's montages are wonderful. Nice to find them all linked here without having to search them out myself!

Spamalot was so fun and even more so because Clay did such a wonderful job in it.

Great montage by SueRue! I was wondering when bits and pieces of Clay in Spamalot would surface!

I thoroughly enjoyed Clay in Broadway and had some wonderful times there with some wonderful people!

Thanks Sue and Caro!

SueReu's "Knights on Broadway" is superb. I was fortunate enough to see "Spamalot" twice, and was thoroughly enchanted both times.

Thanks for another great blog.

Caro, love the montage of Sue Rue. Brought back so much great memories of Spamalot. I wish one day Clay would go do another Broadway show. He's so good at it.

The graphics also brought good memories and my fav graphic of Ashes brought a smile -- I miss her so much!

Many thanks for your great blogs and bringing so much joy always.
