Taylor Hicks Talks To Kelly’s Grandmother
So real quick while I am getting ready for part 1 of the American Idol Finale, I just have to share this video I recorded this afternoon at the press junkett!
Flick and I have gotten the oppurtunity to meet loads of incredible past and present American Idols over the past few days. They all have been incredibly gracious and a pleasure to speak with– especially Taylor Hicks.
That man REEKS of Southern hospitality– the interview started with a handshake and ended with a hug as if we had been longtime friends. After the interview ended, we took a picture and I asked Taylor if he would mind recording a quick snippet for my grandmother back in Pittsburgh.
Just an FYI- if you thought you were a Taylor Hicks fan, you are NOTHING compared to my Nan. She has loved him since he won American Idol in 2006 and that fondness has grown every single year.
So ladies and gentleman, here is the video that made my grandmother weep uncontrollably and moved me to the top of the list for Granddaughter of the Year :) Enjoy!
