Taylor Hicks should be on 'going out to dinner' terms with Regis and his co-host Kelly Ripa. Taylor Hicks returns to the show to perform "Beauty School Drop Out" the number he's performing in "Grease". It's Broadway Week on Regis and Kelly, so natch, they have to have Mr. Hicks drop in.
I think Mr. Hicks' previous visit to the show was during the show's annual Wedding Special Week. He was the selected singer for the winning couple's wedding. He and Kelly Ripa had a great time partying in that event. Kelly's always seemingly ready to give the Soulman some love and affection and commends his being "Gorgeous!" after his performance. Kelly praised his look, "from head to toe". The silver and black look absolutely fabulous on him.
The only video I have been able to find on his performance on the show was this one circulating on all the blogs, out on RedLasso. It cuts off the ending of his interview time. I have got to get myself that capability to transfer video on television to my computer...
I think Mr. Hicks did a great job, his delivery is fun, smiling, mellow. His vocals sound very good, he puts out such a smooth vibe. He makes a devilishly fun Teen Angel.
