Taylor Hicks Dating and Grease

Taylor Hicks thanks the folks (without the Soul Patrol shout out) who took the time to vote on the “Live with Regis and Kelly” dating game to have Julie hit the top three. Now it’s already been talked about that Julie and her Mom were and are fans of Mr. Hicks from his Idol days, so not going to go further into that topic. I will say I thought Julie was witty, smart and took all the camera face time in stride.

Naturally I was thrilled they did the karaoke gig since I’d mentioned hoping for that on another site. Of course, think, Taylor Hicks, combined with Julie Courtney also a musician and karaoke… not a big stretch. After all Danny Boome cooked for his date, therefore Hicks should sing to his date. It’s like simple math or something.
Taylor Hicks Takes a Date: Julie Courtney

Now Julie lives in San Francisco, CA, one of my favorite cities on this planet. Someone asked me if she was also that gal rumored in Hicks’ past from a little town in Texas. I have no idea of course about that, Julie is not an uncommon name.

Another topic, on the Taylor Hicks radar, he’s apparently signed on for another run with that national tour of “Grease” – obviously this show is selling well or it would not be carrying on longer than originally announced. Word on Variety.com he’s in for the 2009 – 2010 season. Now what has many in the Hicks’ fan base slightly riled up is the 2010 part. Is this to mean that Mr. Hicks will be singing “Beauty School Drop Out” this time next year? Is that really such a bad thing as long as Mr. Hicks is able to stay on the move and gain this very positive press and attention he’s been attracting?

Remember Taylor Hicks new CD “The Distance” drops on March 10.
“Keep On Keepin On”

    It was a cute promotion, wasn’t it? Aww, and the one you picked to win did a great job. She was a natural. I’m not bent out of shape about the 2010 thing; he’s given us a few awesome after shows, a great new video, and we’ll have that new CD very soon. Keeping the steady paycheck with today’s economy, a pretty good idea.

    Did you see that Clay was dropped by his label?

    Ms Julie talked a little too much over their dinner, but all and all from the footage that was shown on TV the crew and players did a great job. My question is: Does Taylor realize how cute and sexy he is and how much does he want to be known as hot. I ask that because it seems he has been making an effort to show his hotness and sex appeal. He also seems to be sticking to grilled salmon, salads, his chicken noodle soup, and running, in between bits of chocolate, ice cream and beer. Then there are the clothes, shoes, scarves and hair, so where did that over weight, fugly shirt, baggy pants, waffle house yahooing guy go? It has been my observation that attention and fame really turn him on and he is a long way from giving any of that up to please a woman.

    Yeah, Chill, saw that about Clay, he’s been declining in popularity with all his fathering a baby and coming out – not unexpected. Julie was really good, made for a good TV promo moment.

    Rosie, she may have been nervous, affects some folks that way. lol I agree with your observation regarding Taylor.

    He’s convincing me more now too, that under that chubby scruffy guy might be a real sexy man. (I’ve always found him charismatically appealing but never regarded him as physically sexy. Ah, I’m female, I can change my mind.)

    I’ve always been a Hicks fan. He has been in the woodwork these last two years and it’s good to see him in the media again. The dating show was a bit cheesy but got him some more exposure. Julie was a cute choice and is apparently from San Francisco where Grease will be in a few weeks. This might make his traveling life less lonely for a few weeks! I watched the cheesy date. A talker she was! Could have been worse. She could have been silent and uncomfortable. She fits his Grease theme “Beauty school dropout” (in an article she spoke of her beauty queen days heehee) Awaiting a CD with a heavy does of blues and improv. Welcome back Taylor. You’re doing well there mate. Keep it up.
