Taylor Hicks: Try A Little Tenderness

I wish I had some time to post tonight, but I got a big show coming up on the 17th so this will have to hold you for the day:-) A nice Taylor Hicks cover of Otis Redding's Try A Little Tenderness.

Man, it burns my ass that if I want to see Hicks do Tenderness (pretty much my favorite performance of anything he's ever done), I have to watch this clip from this ^&**&#@*& lousy crap TV show. I wish the guy would record or perform this somewhere...anywhere else.

I like the Commitments clip, too. But um...how about one of Otis his own fine self?

I had forgotten about this performance on A. I. - of course with the complete lack of mention of his name the past season, some of this great stuff gets overlooked. One of his best on the show.

I agree with the above poster, man why doesn't he record covers like this if he's gonna do covers? Really fine.

This was my favorite performance on AI...still have it as my ringtone and thrills me everytime I get a call:) Wish he perform in concert or on CD.

Definitely one of my fave AI performances by Taylor!

Thanks for continuing to acknowledge Taylor. This was one of my favorites from Idol - along with "You Are So Beautiful" and "Somewhere."

The media continues to take pot shots at Taylor, and it's nice to see something positive every once in a while. (One fan at a time, one fan at a time!)

Thank you for the great video's of Taylor. One of my favorite's from the show. To bad AI wouldn't acknowledge what brought viewers to season five show and tour. I for one will never watch the show again. What goes around,comes around.

Amen to the "never watching the show again"! They would have to eat major crow and promote Taylor and apologize publicly for the way they have treated the person that America voted to win their show that they're so arrogant about! Who needs it, anyway? Keeping up with Taylor takes a good deal of my time:)

A friend just directed me to your site, because she knows what a big Taylor Hick's fan I am. I'm glad to find it. Looks like I have some exploring to do.....

Didn't watch AI any season but season five when I stumbled on to Taylor. He just sets that song on fire!!!!

One of my favorite songs Taylor sang on AI. I have always loved this song and Taylor did great.

Great site, I will be back!
