Taylor Hicks Brings the American Idol House Down Once Again!

Taylor Hicks seized the moment and conquered the American Idol stage yet again - 3 years after he was crowned Season 5 Winner. He performed flawlessly - blowing some harp and earning a standing ovation from all 4 judges - yes, included Simon Cowell - I know, I was floored too! And as far as I can remember, the judges have NEVER given a returning Idol a standing ovation before tonight. Kudos, Taylor for getting them on their feet for you! He looked so stunning in a black sleeveless vest, form fitting jeans, and boots. Simon cames in his underwear. Nice, Simon. Taylor outshined all the other guests with his charisma, his stunning voice and his mere presence. Yes, he IS a STAR in every possible sense of the word. Enjoy the performance, fellow fans, and check out the pictures!

After sleeping on it and watching replay a couple times this morning I've changed my mind about Taylor's performance. It wasn't bad at all, even though the tune was cut short, I guess at AI time limits. Seems like could spare 4:18 for the tune and a little more interview time. Jiro

LOL Simon wore his underwear. LOL

I think Simon was sending a message. Mr. Cowell seems to have found truth in the old saying, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." I think he decided ahead of time to finally show Taylor some support, and it was killing him. The underwear was his way of disrespecting Taylor while he gave him a standing O.
