  1. Season 5 winner is from Birmingham Alabama and so is winner of Idols second season. Though Taylor Hicks was the winner of Idols fifth season he wasnt really close to the best singer on the show. Those four singers Taylor Hicks and were more or less polished performers by the time they appeared on Idol.

  2. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
