American Idol's Ruben Studdard & Clay Aiken to Reunite on Broadway!

Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken are headed to Broadway!

The pair will hit the stage for Ruben & Clay’s First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show, which will feature Christmas songs and comedy sketches. The Broadway run will begin on December 7 at the Imperial Theatre and end on December 30. A portion of the proceeds for the show will go to the National Inclusion Project.

“Christmas is about family, friends and fun. Clay and I can’t wait to bring all those things together on Broadway this December!” Ruben said (via Deadline).

Clay added, “There are really only two things that could get me back in stage after taking a break for over five years: my buddy, Ruben, and Christmas! It’s been 15 years since he beat me on Idol, and it’s taken an entire decade and a half for me to lick my wounds. But the holidays are about togetherness, so now that he is older and I am wiser, I can think of no better way to celebrate 15 years of friendship than by spending this holiday season together on Broadway.”

The pair competed on the American Idol finale back in 2003, and Ruben ended up winning.
