What and why has Taylor not

What and why has Taylor not been on Am. Idle this season as a guest ? It is going around that Toylor has a bad relations with Am. Idle which is understandable is this ture ? Is taylor going to be on this year maybe at the finals ? I thank Taylor is one of the best but on the out side looking in it seems we don't hear or see him like some of the other Idels ? Thanks Doug

Taylor lived two houses down

Taylor lived two houses down from my house when he was a little boy.   His parents are divorced.   His father was grey headed early in life so it runs in the family.   His mom, Pam, was great.   His father was always working so I didn't know him very well.   Taylor always struck me as a person who went after what he wanted.   Good luck to him.   Of course.....War Eagle!

The man can sing!  I've

The man can sing!  I've been telling him for years and finally he listened to me and went on American Idol

Taylor was in a band called

Taylor was in a band called Passing Through at Auburn University.   I was in college at the same time he was and watched him perform several times.   Words can't describe how wonderful his voice is.  This guy has talent way beyond his competitors, and is a natural on stage.   Whether he wins or not, he will succeed in his music career further than any of the other contestants.  Good luck ,Taylor and WAR EAGLE!!!!!

just wait

How did Simon not pick this

How did Simon not pick this guy up? He was clearly the best male voice I've heard on American Idol audition, bar none.

He was not the best, but he

He was not the best, but he was far from the worst.

Loved him! Sounds like Joe

Loved him! Sounds like Joe Cocker. However, I don't think younger people will get it! I'll vote for him though. 

for whomever wnts to think

for whomever wnts to think negative of Taylor Hicks, maybe they need to take a good look at

themselves, real close before they go on to judge someone based on their appearance 

That was the most impressive

That was the most impressive thing I have ever seen happen to American Idol, the best voice I have ever heard on this show. 

"I would like to know who

"I would like to know who was the artist that he mentioned in the beginning of his audition and what was the title of the song?" I am wondering the same ?  MSteele@CAET.net

Regardless of American Idol

Regardless of American Idol - Taylor Hicks will be a star.  His voice is unique and - using Paula's words - refreshing.  The trends today are leading away from Brittany Speas bubblegum pop into music of substance.  Taylor has substance galore!   He's my favorite for winning Idol - let's hope the rest of America agrees with me!

Taylor Hicks is exactly what

Taylor Hicks is exactly what this competition needs - I can't stand how bubble-gum it can be! 

I ABSOLUTELY FELL IN LOVE

I ABSOLUTELY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS GUY!!! HE IS GOING TO WIN AMERICAN IDOL 5!!! OH YEAH!!! I WAS BORN BY A RIVER ALSO!!!

I fell in love the first

I fell in love the first time I heard him sing! Also, I think his gray hair is absolutely SEXY. I'm 19 so there is hope for the young crowd.

what song did he sing @ the

what song did he sing @ the hollywood audition, he really rocked it out, my mother and I are arguing the title lol so please let me know!

All I can say about Taylor

All I can say about Taylor Hicks is when he get's behind a microphone I can't help but get a smile on my face, not many musicians can do that do a person.  Idol or not, this guy is a force to be reckoned with and someone who deserves to know what a powerful singer he is.  Futhermore, his style of music really brings out the soul and passion in his voice.  I think I've watched his auditions 50 times already.  Thank goodness for Tivo.  

my bro . . . I'm so proud. 

my bro . . . I'm so proud.  bonzo

I wish music would go back

I wish music would go back to this!!!!!!!   This should be the music of the 90's not brittney spears and back street boys.  Taylor Hicks will be a star someday. With american Idol or not.  love this guy!!!!

I am 46 years old...and I

I am 46 years old...and I think Taylor is incredibly sexy, I could be his MaMa! He is sooo refreshing, I would love him to serenade me anytime. Good luck to him!

Taylor Hicks Rocks

"A change is gonna come" for

"A change is gonna come" for Taylor! He's going to win American Idol because he's the only one with any "real talent". If he doesn't it just  shows how stupid Americans are for wanting more untalented "Eye Candy". Haven't we had enough Jessica Simpson's and Brittany Spears'? Please people we need real music! 

TALOR HICKS ROCKS

TALOR HICKS ROCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would have to say this is

I would have to say this is the first performer in American Idol that has made me inspired.  His heart comes out of his mouth when he sings.  He puts it all out there.  I hope he makes it to the finals and wins the whole damn thing. Cody-24

Good Luck Taylor.....awesome

Good Luck Taylor.....awesome voice ....  

An absoulutely refreshing

An absoulutely refreshing voice and a much need change to American Idol.  If he isn't in the finals it just shows how shallow americans can be, because the only reason he wouldn't make it is if he doesn't fit america's idea of sexy....all you need is talent and he has definitely got a ton of that.  Good luck and God bless Taylor Hicks!

Simon, you better pick

Simon, you better pick Taylor Hicks or else you don't know what America wants.

Right, ummm...Yeah so Simon

Right, ummm...Yeah so Simon did not say he didnt like Taylors voice. He did say he didnt think his appearance was pop enough or something like that, which is understandable. Look at the top 10 bilboard chart, what do they look like.Regardless this show is about money and the top how many ever they choose for us to vote on will be the ones they think can make the most money. Another correction simon said no to taylor in the audition with the explanation that paula and randy wont put him through to finals, when we vote. I think this is a valid point. Look at who randy has produced. Now look at paula she was a britteny spears. Simon may be an ass but he is always honest.

Anyway,

Taylor Great voice but your preformance is so much better! Do everything you can do to make it to the finals we will do the rest. I will vote you into the 1 spot on my own if i have to. and if for some dumbass reason simon paula and randy idiotic mind give you the boot you have a new fan.Goodluck

Oh and Simon i guarantee i will buy his cd. So pass him and theres 20 bux for you.

Oh and if you dont pass him,

Oh and if you dont pass him, i will never watch again  because its pointless to watch something with the same story every year........................

if he gets voted off

Ruban got a second chance so he should get his

What do you guys think about

What do you guys think about Taylor singing the wonder years theme?

It IS refreshing to hear

It IS refreshing to hear Taylor sing...I have seen him perform here in Birmingham and I think if anyone should win it should be him...He has more soul than any of the past contestants and I get a rush hearing him sing....also...this makes THREE Idol contestants from alabama....WHEN ARE THEY GONNA HOLD AUDITIONS IN BIRMINGHAM....I THINK THEY FEAR THE SOUTH AND THE POWER THE VOICES HOLD HERE

Mel Diablo

i heard a couple of songs of

i heard a couple of songs of his on a website, ithink he;s great.  Very proffessional and the vocals are amazing.  good luck!

This guy is the only reason

This guy is the only reason why I will continue to watch this seasons Idol. I can't put my finger on IT but he has IT.

This guy is amazing. He will

This guy is amazing. He will be in the Final 2. You are hearing it now.

all the fans of Taylor

all the fans of Taylor should start contacting the major labels and tell them to sign him immediately .American idol is not the right venue for an artist like Hicks.Sometimes american idol can ruin a career and Hicks is a rare find whose talent we need to cherish .Some of the fans of American Idiol won't be able to appreciate his type of artistic expression.Fans of Hicks, don't get discouraged if he gets voted off just keep hasseling the record labels so one day we can see him in concert (and then I can marry him !!!!)

I wonder why Simon is every

I wonder why Simon is every year as a judge in american idol.

Usually he is ready to throuw the singer out the of the room before the singer has even started to sing.

He is always so negative and so so stupid.

Who is this Simon any way??

I know Paula Abdul and also Randy, but who is this guy? Who is Simon?

Why he has a kind of english accent? Is he from England? If yes, the why that bastard pig is acting as a judge in AMERICAN Idol?

I get so angry when I see his face with that look thinking that he knows everything about music.

He created a group of four men, a kind of tenors (I don´t remember this group´s name, but they sing already created songs in english and spanish, but you just can´t listen at their songs, because they´re so so bad, not the songs, but them...      And Simon thinks he is a real expert in matter of music...   What he is, is a real stupid!!

I hope he goes to hel...
