And he WON American Idol, the poor guy!

Taylor Hicks is still starring in the national tour of Grease as "Teen Angel" and doesn't seem to have any other musical prospects in sight!

At least he's working!

  3. 3

    good for him,coo;



  4. 4

    you're running out of "juicy celebrity gossip", eh Mario?



  5. 5

    I never thought of him as being the 'Teen Angel' type.



  6. 6

    he was the best one that ever came out of idol…if he was ordinary he'd be much more successful…



  7. 7

    feel bad for him, the runner-up will be on the wendy williams show today with her new album.

    Just saw an old clip of this no talent bitch. He used to get up and wiggle around like he was having a seisure. "soul patrol" …ha ha ha

    The first X Factor winner, fell out with Simon Cowell and ended up performing at his local pub where tickets cost £2.50. The second one has gone AWOL and the fourth Leon was dropped completely from the label. Taylor Hicks has got a lot more going for him than those three have.

    I am no Taylor Hick fan. But he is making a much better living then a lot of people, getting to travel around the country and is doing a lot better then if he was never on idol. Nothing poor about what is going on in his life. I am not to worried about his future.

    that was always the part of the movie my friends and I would leave to go to hte bathroom — guess we'd do the same for the play

    I saw the tour in December. He was FANTASTIC. Brought the house down. Ace Young, on the other hand was mediocre.

    You're a dick Perez. Fame is fleeting for most. It doesn't necessarily say something about talent. You've been very lucky in your career, what with being a back-stabbing, hypocritical bitch and all.



  14. 14

    Perez must be needing some hits, hes back on Taylor again. LOL
    Hicks is laughing all the way to the bank. Its not everyone that was credited with bringing an extra $150,000 each week to the broadway show he was in. Not everyone that can fill the seats on a tour even in the bad weather. Not everyone that can sell a boatload of merchandise at each show plus put on some shadow shows of his own. And its not everyone who was on the top rated tv shows of the decade. Not just Idol show—ALL SHOWS.
    Not everyone but Taylor was. Hicks will be around when people are saying Perez who?



  15. 15

    Proof that Katherine McPhee should have won!



  16. 16

    I voted for Elliott Yamine, he is way more talented than this hick, Taylor Hicks. People voted for him because they thought he was sexy and he had salt and pepper hair, I knew this would happen to him.



  17. 17

    He's awesome.



  18. 18

    At least his career will last longer than Adam Lamebert's. Adam's on 14 of his 15 minutes.

    Re: Purrr!!!COLON!!! I am so cute

    i liked elliott too and i hope he gets out of chile soon…

    re: taylor — are you friggin kidding me perez. he's a working singer…got a gig that's paying bills, putting money in the bank and filling houses…he's got a cult following of 'soul patrollers too ” i mean seriously — he's been on tour for more than a year and NOW you mention it!



  20. 20

    i don't care for Taylor Hicks, but I went to see Grease in St Louis and you wouldn't believe how much people lit up and were excited for his performance. So maybe he isn't all that forgotten dbag.



  21. 21

    Wow, I totally forgot about him..



  22. 22

    He actually wasn't bad in it, but he's the only thing worth watching in that abortion of a musical. I fell asleep at one point because the rest of the cast is so goddamn mediocre.



  23. 23

    i saw him in jan it was a great show



  24. 24

    it was a great show he was here in st louis in jan



  25. 25

    HE CANT SING!!!!!!
    and shame on him. i love grease. even if its just teen angel.



  26. 26

    Hey, it's work. But is it me or is the "Teen Angel" role usually reserved for these types - Sorry Frankie. But even you were in the 'has been' category when you did it.



  27. 27

    Meanwhile Katherine McPhee is on the cover of Shape, a huge national magazine for women, for the second time. I got so pissed he won over her as she has WAAAAAAy more talent that I had to swear off the show. He is a 2 bit talent. She has lasting power and is way more marketable.



  28. 28

    doesn't he look a little like george clooney?



  29. 29

    Re: fleur1

    i've met him a few times. he's actually gorgeous when you see him….

    it's also nice to see people giving taylor props when he's at least working and has a following….



  30. 30

    Hey, Hicks was named 1 of the top 10 Idol earners last year and I suspect he'll be on the list again this year - in fact, I bet he earners more than Perez! hahaha! Come on dude - you know he was the best on the show - America just like mediocrity - that's why he isn't mainstream.



  31. 31

    His record label through him under the bus after Idol. He was never given a real single or a music video… Clive wanted to focus more on Chris Daughtry. Touring with the Broadway cast of Grease doesn't sound so bad to me.



  32. 32

    the gossip is so slow today that you post this which one of your users commented on yesterday as news?



  33. 33

    I went, I saw, he popped of an icecream cone. AND, they made the audience stay after the show so he could play his "new single". anyway…



  34. 34

    Leave him alone, Mario. He's not your cup of tea, but that's no excuse to bash him. He doesn't deserve it, he's talented.



  35. 35

    So, um, when is someone going to tell them that the "Teen Angel" is Grease is in ONE SCENE!!! Therefore, he is not 'starring in Grease'. Just feel that someone needs to let them know :)

    There's definitely a place for what Taylor does. He loves it, it shows, and people love him when they see him. White soul man loooves his music, so go Taylor. He can get paid instead of paying them to sing on a cruise ship, meet people, eat well, and play lizard in the sun by the pool with a mai tai at hand. Beat that. He's doing alright. The older people with the bucks like his kind of music.

    Taylor is the best thing that EVER came out of AI!! He rocked the show and broke the mold. If you think that's not true, watch an episode this season: completely boring with contestants of limited talent. Taylor has many projects in the works and continues to draw crowds with his performances in Grease. 'Has-been' ? Not even close! Guess your blog is not getting many hits lately (I can see why) so back to 'Taylor bashing' again. Sad, sad, sad! Just remember this: Taylor Hicks reads blogs like this, and just laughs…..laughs all the way to the bank! I just want to finish up by saying that 'fame' doesn't equal talent. Record sales do not equal talent. If they did Taylor would be number one on the Bill Board charts. The man has loads of talent and tons of charisma! I agree completely with the comment by 'prettier than perez' : Taylor will be around long after people are asking, "Perez WHO? Never heard of him."

    Re: labelle31 – If Perez hasn't witnessed the fame firsthand, it apparently hasn't happened, lol.



  39. 39

    uhhh he sucks, he shouldnt even have won that year!



  40. 40

    Slow news day?? I really didn't care for Taylor that much on AI. He reminded me of the Pillsbury Doughboy, chubby and androgynous. However, I saw him in concert last year and was completely blown away. He was leaner, more gritty looking - looked as though he had been pumped up on testosterone, and exuded animal magnetism. He looks like a cross between George Clooney and Sebastien Izumbard.

    He's the best thing about Grease. He's gotten about 20 million dollars worth of publicity appearing on all local media outlets where Grease plays and acquired thousands of new fans. Also he has been doing successful shadow tours on the side. He's recently released a new CD and a DVD. He has also told interviewers that he's received offers for movies, TV and Broadway shows. He seems to have a bright future ahead of him.
