American Idol: Taylor Hicks on Ellen, Simon and the New Season

American Idol: Taylor Hicks on Ellen, Simon and the New Season
Posted By Greg Barber at 1:35 PM on January 14, 2010

FOUR YEARS AGO, Taylor Hicks rode a wave of support from a dedicated group of fans to a win in a competitive “American Idol” season that included contenders like Katharine McPhee, Elliott Yamin, Chris Daughtry and Kellie Pickler, who’ve all gone on to some measure of professional success.

He released his second album last March, and he’s currently touring the country as the Teen Angel in a national production of the musical “Grease.”

I talked with the Soul Patrol sovereign ahead of “Grease’s” stop at D.C.’s National Theatre in February. I’ll have more on that in a couple of weeks. But here are some of Hicks’ thoughts on “Idol’s” recent judging changes and an activity contestants should steer clear of during the show’s run.
