Taylor Hicks Invited to Asian Idol/Performs in the Philippines
Perci Intalan, ABC 5’s head of Creative and Entertainment Production has indicated that special guests appearing on the Asian Idol finale (Dec. 16th) will include “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks and “Australian Idol” champ Guy Sebastian. The event will take place for the first time in Jakarta, Indonesia on December 15th and 16, 2007. Taylor's #1 hit song, "Do I Make You Proud" has been used as promotion throughout the competition, so it comes as no surprise he has been asked to appear on the show.
Also, according to the Philippine Star Newspaper, Taylor is scheduled to perform 3 shows in Manila. The schedule is as follows:
December 18, 2007
December 19, 2007
December 20, 2007
Taylor will be singing 9 songs at each venue:
Use Me Up
Taking It To The Streets
Just To Feel That Way
There will be meet and greet sessions after each show. An estimated 300 million people will be checking out the finale of Asian Idol, so this is a BIGGIE for Taylor! No doubt he will bring his "A" game and sing the bejezus out of whatever he chooses to sing over there. Hopefully, we'll have some first hand reports and video if we play our cards right! Also, check out one of the band members here.
