Remember Taylor Hicks? I do. And I still think he’s probably a really nice guy. I would even spend $10-20 to see him in a small club because he would likely put on a fun live show. But poor Taylor. He’s always been the punchline of American Idol because people remember his name. That Lee DeWyze got off easy because no one even remembers him and that was what? Last spring. No one even remembers his name well enough to make it a punchline.
Like the vast majority of male Idol contestants, Hicks got stuck with the grannies. Hell, with that premature mop of gray hair, he probably got it worse than the others–save for Clay Aiken, perhaps?
But that Taylor Hicks, he’s a nice guy. Even if he thinks you look funny in those red felt antlers, he’ll still be nice to you. And pose for photos which amuse me. Happy holidays, Taylor Hicks.
