I have some knowledge of voices and Taylors is different from anyone I have ever heard. He really connects with the meaning of a song and can convey that meaning to the audience better than anyone I have ever seen. He is an outstanding talent and was definitely not used by Idol as he should have been. They made a huge mistake.

Taylor Hicks - Not The Rightful Winner

Taylor Hicks did NOT deserve to win this season. He was charismatic and fun to watch, but his vocal ability was not up to par with many of the other contestants.

Taylor was the TV star of Idol. With a show like AI you always run the chance that someone's ability to perform live and connect with an audience can override their true musical talent. Taylor was that person. He was made for Idol, but didn't deliver with the same impact on an audio level. Might be why most of his post-Idol success has come from live shows and stage work.

His voice isn't perfect, but his style makes the quirks in his voice an advantage. He's missing the x factor of a true star, but I definitely get why he was rewarded for a string of consistent performances and originality to the Idol stage.

I hate how everyone acts like they always hated Taylor and always thought he was a joke of a contestant. That is totally not true because almost everyone I knew considered him to be one of their favorites if not their favorite and rightfully so because Taylor was consistently awesome and I also hate how everyone treats him like the worst winner besides at least Taylor can actually stay in tune unlike Lee. 100% deserving of his win as far as im concerned. Favorite Performance: In the Ghetto

Simply the Best, Better Than all the others

Taylor is my favorite Idol winner. What charm and talent. He is never boring and is an established entertainer. He is a joy to watch perform and has his own unique style. Watching him perform is such a treat! Love him!

I thought that if Katharines voice didnt get weaker as the show went on that she would have won. I also think Taylor should have finished theird and Chris should have been in the finals. Obviously people agree with me since Taylors album isnt doing as well as Katharines and Chris, even Elliots

Here's the deal with Taylor. He scores well in the emoting category, as he sings with plenty soul. He scores well in the pizzaz category as he is exciting. He scores well in originality. He scores with stage presence. He scores well with charm. He doesn't score well in the physical attractiveness category as Katharine has got him beat. Anyone who rates him a 10 in this category is not being honest. He doesn't score well in 3 of the voice categories, as he does not have the best voice, but he does score well with voice control as he always makes the best of his limited voice. All in all - I rate him the best of season 5.

Taylor confuses me. I think he has a good voice. I can't help but feel that his voice would be better if he would calm down just a little. If he calmed down, I'm not sure he would be as popular as he is. I think he is worthy of the top six or so. I will see what he sounds like on the season album before making a decision about any future albums he does solo.

He's quirky, but a half hour after his performances, I'm still smiling! Every single time he hits the stage, you know he LOVES being there. And he gives the impression that he'd be just as thrilled if he was doing the same thing in his living room just singing to his dog!

Average Performer w/ Outstanding Feeling

His feeling is incredible in his songs, but his movements are either copycating from other performers, including blind men, or his own original spasms, which are painful to watch. I love that he's into the music, but he needs to be more original (but not CRAZY) and he is only an average singer.
