Taylor Hicks on a US Postage Stamp!
"American Idol" will have its own limited-edition collectable stamps featuring Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Carrie Underwood, TAYLOR HICKS, Jordin Sparks and the soon-to-be named winner of season seven.
On last night's "Idol Gives Back," host RYAN SEACREST announced that "American Idol" winners will be featured on postage stamps with the net proceeds from the sales of the stamps, created by created by PhotoStamps.com, donated to "Idol Gives Back."
Only 104,000 -- 2000 sheets for each of the 50 states in the U.S. -- will be issued weekly. This week, the stamp featuring Kelly Clarkson is available at americanidol.com or PhotoStamps.com.
Then each Tuesday for the next six weeks, a different "American Idol" will be featured. The stamps are real, first-class postage (42 cents) -- and each sheet of 20 stamps will sell for $19.99.
Okay call me skeptical until I actually SEE Taylor's handsome mug on a US Stamp, but the thought of that makes me giddy! On the other hand, I'm thinking the American Idol pigs would do something underhanded like putting a decapitated picture of him on the stamp like they did on the show's opening credits this year. Nah.... Hmm. I wouldn't put anything past those American Idol slimebags.
Funny they will diss Taylor until they are blue in the face, that's until they need his picture for something. Right, Nigel - it's all for altruistic purposes. Uh huh.
And oh yea, before I forget, you want to know the ratings for this years Idol Gives Back special? It was the LOWEST rating for an "Idol" telecast since the 2005 "American Idol's Worst Auditions" special - 17.6 million viewers and a 6.7 rating and 18 share. That's down from 26 million last season. And pledges were 60 million down from 76 million last season. Yes, that omnipresent karma wheel marches on. :) Yes indeed!
