Taylor Hicks - A Look Back To Season 5 Top 3 Homecoming
As we await the snooze fest this week on American Idol - the top 3 homecoming week, let us go back in time when things on the show were genuinely thrilling - back two years ago when Taylor, Katharine and Elliott slugged it out for the win. Ah, the good 'ol days when the competition was exciting!!!
Here's a portion of Taylor's homecoming at the Galleria Shopping Mall in Hoover, Alabama where fans greeted their hero! Coming down that elevator to a sea of admirers, can you just imagine what was going through his head after 10 years of struggle to get himself and his music heard? They had over 12,000 people in attendance that day for the hometown boy!
That week on the show, Taylor blew the competition away with the following 3 songs. Yes, America, you sure did get it RIGHT by picking Taylor Hicks as your winner of Season 5 - the most enjoyable entertainer the show has ever produced.
Dancing In The Dark - Clive Davis Choice (I can see the disgust in Taylor's eye when listening to this old geezer telling him how to put emotion into the song. Good Grief!)
You Are So Beautiful - Judges Choice (Randy Jackson)
Try A Little Tenderness (Taylor's Personal Choice)
