Taylor Hicks was the American Idol season 5 winner but has not done so well in terms of his music career.

He was dropped by Sony BMG earlier in the year following poor album sales, and now turns to Broadway.

Reports state that Hicks is extremely excited to be taking part in Grease on Broadway.

He will follow other Idol notables who have also headed to Broadway, including Fantasia Barrino, Clay Aiken, Diana DeGarmo, and others.

Taylor Hicks’ big spot will be adding some soul to the song “Beauty School Dropout.”

    Why did you use a very old picture of Taylor Hicks with a numer on his chest? Why didn’t you use a current picture of him now that it is two years after that picture was taken.
    He has many great photos from headlining his national tour – and he’s lost 25 pounds since then, and even was on the cover of People Magazine. Last week he was on the Red Carpet at the Kentucky Derby – and That’s the best you could do for the picture……..or maybe it was the the worst………as you story was not intended to be positive. As for the record contract, with the way AI told America that we “got it wrong” and our votes didn’t really count, and they just gave the winners title away to Chris, Taylor begged to get away from a record company that choose not to promote him, no videos, no sigles for two months after the albuym was released, and we wonder why sales were considered low? .
    It was a mutual parting, even though his album was certified Platinum.
    Oh Yeah, ……..I guess you forgot to report that didn’t you….like most reporters.
