Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard are doing a tour together, and I’m not an American Idol fan, so I really don’t care about that. But they had their first concert on Friday, and if this video is any kind of guide to how the show is, then I might have to start caring.
The medley includes songs like “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan, “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus, “The Right Stuff” by New Kids on the Block, “The End of the Road” by Boyz II Men, “I Swear” by All-4-One, and “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys, all with goofy dance moves and pauses so that the performers could catch their breath.
I think I like it so much because all of those elements together just toss me right back to my 5th grade Valentine’s Day dance that I had to sneak into because I had lice and I wasn’t allowed on school grounds. And that might have been a dark time in my life, but that was a damn good dance.
Thanks for the memories, guys!
