Taylor Hicks Grabbed America By The Balls and Ran

I sure would like to get back to the music, wouldn't you? Two years ago, we layed eyes on Mr. Hicks for the first time as he told the judges he wanted his voice heard. And man, he just captured the hearts of the American public big time. For him, it was, is, and has always been "all about the music".

One of the first and finest performances by Taylor on AI was his cover of the Doobie's "Taking It To The Streets". He took America by the balls and never looked back - and as much as Simon dismisses him today, let this tape remind everyone how he was absolutely blown away by this performance, saying "it's about standing out and having fun". Yes, Simon, that is exactly right.

Yeah, it's too bad Simon doesn't remember all the good things he had to say about Taylor.

It's funny on AI this year all they're talking about is how the music is all retro, what's old is new .. huh? what? I thought that didn't sell? Who knew?

I watched a Bio on A&E this morning about Simon..He'll admit it's all about the money for him. He knew at a young age that's what he wanted.

Taylor has sooooo much energy on this song. He is just electric. I would love for Michael McDonald to write a song fro Taylor.
