TV Themes on Emmys? Sure makes me think of Clay Aiken…

I’m definitely majorly biased, but I think Clay has the perfect personality and voice to carry off a TV Theme medley.

TV Theme medley from Clay’s concert in 2007:

    Clay did a great job with this medley! He always makes me smile! The vocals on Perfect Strangers is perfection!!

    Josh is a good singer, but I thought he looked rather awkward and out of his element. Clay’s medley was much more entertaining and fun.

    Yeah, Clay’s tv medley was a blast!

    Josh has a good voice…. but I am not his fan.
    Love Clay’s voice and his personality! He was so great last summer, I would go to a Clay concert anytime anywhere.

    Josh sounds good on more operatice material; his voice didn’t seem to be a good fit for the TV medley on the Emmy Awards. I greatly prefer the TV medley that Clay Aiken performed during his 2007 Soft Rock and a Hard Place Tour. Clay’s medley was fun!

    honestly, I love listening to Josh Groban and was really looking forward to seeing him, but you’re right, VoxAngelicus, that TV medley was a mismatch for him stylistically.

    And I think they tried to squeeze to many different themes into the medley, so each bit was too short, and that made it even more awkward.

    Now that is ENTERTAINMENT!

    Too bad they didn’t have Clay do the TV medley last night. He is much more suited to this kind of entertainment and could have gotten the audience involved a little more. I was actually a little embarrassed for Josh.

    I’ve seen Clay do the TV theme medley in concert & I saw Josh Groban last night on the emmys.

    It would seem to me that Clay was certainly forward thinking since doing the TV medley was something he came up with to entertain concert goers last summer. He did them extremely well ….. it was one of the highlights of the show.

    Josh did them well also …. showed a side of himself that I’ve never seen, but I couldn’t help feeling just a little melancholy watching Josh do what Clay did so well.

    Clay Aiken was so funny doing those tv medleys!! Funny, talented man.

    Josh Groban appeared to be a bit uncomfortable and his voice, more trained and classical, didn’t quite fit the tv medleys. Clay Aiken was so natural and funny when doing them and made it enjoyable.

    I’ve been reading what other people are saying about Josh’s Emmy performance. And I think the people saying that Josh’s performance was supposed to be funny is right. But then he probably should have performed the whole thing like he was singing at a classical concert…

    And, just want to say that my post wasn’t really meant to be a comparison of Clay and Josh. It’s just that when I saw the TV themes medley on the Emmy show, it made me think of Clay and his version.

    Linda, I like your comment about Josh showing a different side of himself. Watching it with that in mind does give a different perspective to the segment.

    I’m not a big Josh fan but I think he tried to do his best on something I don’t think he’s really comfortable with. Now I think Clay would have been a better choice but perhaps the people who set up these things didn’t know that and Spamalot may have been a deterrent. Clay would probably have the whole audience singing and dancing and I probably have watched more of the show than I did.
