Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken show off their on-stage chemistry in new Broadway Christmas show

Bruce Glikas/Bruce Glikas/WireImageAmerican Idol alums Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken are reuniting on stage this holiday season for a brand new Broadway show with a very long title: Ruben & Clay’s First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show.

The show, which kicks off its three-week engagement tonight, will combine variety show-inspired sketches with performances of some Christmas classics.

“I look forward to performing with Clay,” Ruben tells ABC Radio. “You know, the tour that we did a couple years back it really showed me how much chemistry we have on stage and people love it.”

He adds, “And I think that people will enjoy this even more just because it’s Christmas. Everybody enjoys a good Christmas show.”

The two previously toured together in 2010, seven years after Ruben won the second season of American Idol and Clay took the runner-up spot.

“What’s funny I think is that people think we have this rivalry and we never had a rivalry on Idol,” Clay adds. “We play it up sometimes when we do shows and we do press but we’ve never felt—I’ve never felt competitive with [Ruben].”

He waits for Ruben to agree, but instead Ruben deadpans, “I mean, I liked beating you.” 

Ruben & Clay’s Christmas Show will be showing at the Imperial Theatre in New York City through December 30. A portion of ticket sales will go to benefit the National Inclusion Project, which Clay co-founded to help children with disabilities.
