Twenty years ago, Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken had music fans on the edge of their seat in the finale of season two of American Idol. Whose team were you on, Team Ruben or Team Clay? Well, Ruben and Clay are back! And this time, you don’t need to choose between Ruben’s velvety voice or Clay’s powerhouse belt. Both plucked from the relative obscurity of their hometowns in the South, the unlikely pair quickly became audience favorites instrumental in helping propel Idol to the top of the Nielsen ratings, nearly tripling the viewership of the previous season, and securing its place as one of the most consequential TV series in American history. Over 38 million viewers tuned in to hear the results of more than 124 million votes cast during their finale making it the most watched Idol episode in history and the highest rated regularly scheduled, live, non-sporting television episode of the 21st century. Twenty | The Tour will highlight the music that made the pitch-perfect duo Ruben & Clay American Idol favourites and household names, from Clay’s iconic rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to Ruben’s soulful single “Sorry.” Join Arts Commons Presents and these “brothers by choice” for Ruben & Clay: Twenty | The Tour live in the Jack Singer Concert Hall, an unforgettable evening of music and memories, spanning two decades, delivered as only these true superstars can.
