My American Idol Pick
Simon hates him, Randy has yet to call him "Dawg" and he doesn't make Paula hot, but Taylor Hicks is gonna kick some AI butt this season. The TV editing hasn't done this guy justice. Check out three of his songs from this site, listed below. (Scroll to the bottom where the songs are listed.) Listen to all three; they are original and soulful.
Aside from my unflattering and narcissistic need to remind folks I called it (more than three months ago), the re-post is so you can check out some of Taylor's songs from his independent CD release. The ones on the link are quite good. Check 'em out and let me know what you think.
