And the winner is...

TAYLOR HICKS!!!

The Silver Fox of Soul has prevailed in Season 5 of American Idol, and I couldn't be more thrilled! *does a little Taylor dance* Not only is he the first guy to beat a girl in the finals, he's also the first white guy to win AI, AND he did it without ever landing in the bottom 3! From his audition in Vegas all the way to his last performances in the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, I just loved, loved, loved Taylor's buoyant energy and infectious spirit. True, his vocals aren't as strong as Katharine McPhee's, and he's not as hot as Chris Daughtry, but Taylor has unique stage presence-- and the crazy dance moves and ugly jackets are all part of the package (Simon can sneer all he want, I don't care!). No other Idol is as enjoyable to watch as Taylor, and I am haphaphappy that he won. His will be the first AI solo album that I'll buy (the real deal too, not pirated! :p). I'm a Soul Patroller for life! Woo!

P.S. Read this great blog post about Taylor and why he won, by my fellow Hicks fan and newfound blog buddy enuhski. =D
