Taylor Hicks - "I'd like to drop Simon Cowell into the infield of Talladega and see what happens"

Okay racing fans!! Taylor Hicks will sing the National Anthem prior to the Aaron’s 499 Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway. Check back later for video and (hopefully) some thud-worthy pictures!

In the meantime, here's a little blurb from the Orlando Sentinel - awesome!

Nothing too eventful at the drivers meeting, but we did meet the celebrities attending the race. Connie Chunt, Tommy Tuberville, Taylor Hicks and Maury Povich.

Hicks will be singing the national anthem before today's race, his second Talladega gig. About seven years ago he played a gig on top of a motorhome in the infield.

"I'd like to drop Simon Cowell into the infield of Talladega and see what happens," Hicks said.

He was asked if he like Auburn or Alabama and replied, "I'm not going to answer that at Talladega. I'd end up like Simon Cowell."


Heck, I'd pay $100 to see that too :)

Wow..I can't believe Taylor finally said something about Simon!! Way to go Taylor...too bad it wasn't something worse.

No matter which side Taylor would pick, Alabama or Auburn, he could never be compared to Simon.

Taylor has far too much class!!!

I'd like to see Simon try to cross the alley as one of the race cars departs after having a tire changed. Oops!!

You bet, Taylor~ Simon would not stand a chance after all he has said about you...repeatedly. Glad that you opened up and found the appropriate timing to let him have it...and still remain one classy dude. You make us proud, Taylor!

Note to Simon: Shutup!
