One thing I find so fascinating about Taylor Hicks is his ability to play "cheesy" brilliantly then hop in a car and transform into Serious Music Man. From all accounts, he knocked everyone's socks off on both stages last night.
I've said it before: he's an enigma, wrapped in a mystery, deep-fried in a puzzle and wrapped up tidily with a leather band that no one will ever know the meaning of. And I would guess he loves it that way. But who the hell knows?
