American Idol Hopeful Taylor Hicks Accused Of Dancing Just Like A Honky
by Mark on 3/8/2006 (40)

You can dance if you want to...
(AP) Herky, jerky, Ray Charlesesque American Idol hopeful Taylor Hicks was recently accused of dancing "just like a honky" according to the National Peanut Gallery late Tuesday. NPG reporter Arkisha Watts elaborates:

"Ha!...Taylor dances just like a honky! All herky jerky like he got a potato chip up his butt! White guys can't dance, so give it up Hicks!"

Indeed, people with rythym nationwide have grinned and guffawed at Hicks comic attempts at rock and rythym, a puzzling mix of Ray Charles, Elvis and Stevie Wonder, minus the wonder, at least the Stevie kind. In spite of a warm, genteel Southern persona, potent retro-soul lyrics and a compelling magnetic smile, Hicks spasmodic jukes and jerks fail to fall were he intends them to, that is, in a believable melding of body, motion and soul.

"Trouble is, he white!" Lambasted Detroit resident Leona Shabazz. "Everyone knows white guys can't dance. If you can't cook, stay out the kitchen, that's what we say!"

Hicks continues to charm American viewers and voters, however, in his surprise longevity on the hit TV talent turner series, but Am Idol Randy Jackson keenly cautioned "Dog, you the bomb! And when I say bomb, I mean Buddy Holly thick frame lenses, Bing Crosby Pat Boone cracker-ass Richie Valence La Bomba bomb! Yeahh!""0" styl

Taylor Hicks is the man you are all afraid of something new and fresh. He loves what he is doing and it make all of us like it as well. taylor is a true god given performer and you can tell it the way he comes alive on stage </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

While he certainly can seem awkward, you actually couldn't be farther from the truth. He actually has dead on rhythm and if you really watch him move, his movements chaotically yet perfectly hit the beats and off beats of the song. You are used to seeing the motions that people mold to the music that is generally "acceptable" dancing...but this guys movements are just natural reflections of the music. Soul baby...all there is to it. I guarantee that not only would more people pay to see that man perform right now than any other contestant, but they'd probably pay 2x the price they would for any other either.t </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I agree with the second poster completely. I have some of Taylors music and he is damn good. I would pay to see him right now. Total original. Yeah Chris can sing, but he's a one trick pony. Hicks is exceptional. He's only toying with us. He knows he can knock off Will and Kevin on a bad day. Wait 'til the a-list material comes out.ispl </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Stop hating Taylor! He's an original, he makes the show, and I would pay to see him any day of the week and twice on Sunday! Dancing is like art, who says art is art. He makes the music come to life not only through his voice but through his moves. Yeah okay, he's not dropping his bottom and shaking what his momma gave him. But aren't we just a little tired of that? He is awesome and fresh and hope he's the next idol. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

and enough with the racist "white men can't dance" garbage. If you wrote an article including quotes about how black men can't swim, you'd be kicked off the net. Taylor rocks, he IS the next American Idol </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I also would pay to see Taylor and the last concert I attended was 20 years ago. Taylor Hicks is original, fresh and exciting. He isn't bumping and grinding like all the rest ... he is singing and dancing to a different drummer.ispla </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I have loved Taylor from the first time I saw him in the "auditions." He is for sure a different type of contestant, but the white boy got more soul than I've ever seen. He's a natural born singer. src="h </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I agree that Taylor may not be the sterotypical great dancer however, make not mistake that this boy can sing and entertain. What other men's performance stood out more that Taylor Hicks. If you just listen to the vocals and not watch him dance you would know that this guy is the real deal and not some pretty boy. He is more versatile than all the other contestants and has the experience to win the whole enchilada!<if </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Taylor's got the blues in his soul. It don't take color to have that. Stevie Ray had it, Ray Charles has it, Stevie Wonder owns it, and Taylor Hicks lives it. Watching him move is a trip in time. Awesome. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

When Taylor gets a professional manager he'll be taught how to tone down the body antics and the WOOOO! thing he does too much. Other than those idiosyncrasies he really does have a good voice and is a great soulful performer. If white men can't dance, what is it that black men can't do? Calculus?tp: </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Those who think he can't dance weren't watching close enough. Every jerk and "hot tic" were on beat. He's actually a somewhat veteran stage performer, so that's why he can work the band, stage, and audience. Plus, the guy can sing!is </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

That's not dancing folks, it's pure soul, blues whatever you want to call it, overflowing out of his body. I don't thing he has control over those moves. You have to admit he's got music in himtp: </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Taylor is showing America what music is all about. He is good and loves what he does. Watch the faces of the people when he performs, they reflect the majority of the viewers. You who don't agree are missing the boat on this one. Taylor you are a pleasure to watch. Can't wait for one of his concerts!!!!!!! s </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I am almost hoping he doesn't win the title (don't kill me!) I'd like him to make it to top 2 but not be saddled with the American idol tag. He'd be on TV long enough to be noticed and gain popularity and then he can do his own thing and paly his own kind of music and not have to record those godawful songs they whip up for the finale. I just wish I could vote. Darn those rules preventing people from across the border from voting...isplay: </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

This is what's wrong with the world today. It's always race. White people can do this better, Black people can do that better. Enough already! Can't you just enjoy the person for what he or she is. I am a Black woman and I think Taylor is great. He is refreshing, different and truly enjoys and feels the music. People say he can't dance. He is not trying to dance, he is simply feeling the music.nemo </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>
31. by elizabeth on 3/1/2007 4:52:29 PM
beautifully stated Sharon. It's worth watching the other performers while waiting for the moment of truth with Taylor, and it was worth reading all those posts just to get to yours. Taylor 'whoo!!' Hicks is a blast!, a rockin good time, and that's what I want in an American </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I cannot believe this article! It is UNREAL that you would ONCE AGAIN use the race card! Hasn't this country had ebough hatred?? If you just don't like Taylor...then whoever you want, but blaming your own insecurities about your own race on a truly gifted man, becasue you don't have enough sense to come up with a REAL reason to not like him, is childish and immature!! GROW UP ALREADY!!! TAYLOR IS THE BEST AMERICAN IDOL CONTESTANT THIS SHOW HAS EVER SEEN!i </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Once again reporters seem to puzzle me, how can anyone get away with quoting such nonsense...Now I im a Soul Patroler and Taylor Fan, This 29 year old has class, but motivation from the music, as said before by him it's in the heart, and his feet move to it...sort of reminds me of Dave Matthews he's got soul as well, however, not everyone can dance, but should we label them as bad dancers or by color, I am very disappointed...I'm upset...Everyone, especially at this time of those who affected by the weather or the men that fight for our freedom, and then there are those who sing the praise to lift our spirits up, why can't we support them and push them to move forward, I would pay to see this guy perform why because to become an American Idol, you have to love music and it should be in your soul to lift our spirits, WE ALL SHOULD BE HAPPY THAT GOD CREATED THESE GIFTED ANGELS TO SING BEAUTIFULLY ESPECIALLY IN OUR TIME OF SORROW, For crying out loud STOP LABELING A PERSON BY RACE, Especially the media screws this up which pists me off it should not be about BLACK HISTORY MONTH, because that would mean it would have to be WHITE AMERICAN MONTH, no wonder we are so divided, if your going to report something at least do it with some dignity how in the hell do you sleep at night...

In my opinion, Taylor is authenitic he loves the music and pays tribute to it respectfully. I am Black, mid-thirties,female who LOVES!! what he is doing. Honestly, young Black kids don't even listen to classic soul music. They may know a few names or top hits but they really don't know the music. So they don't have the right to tell someone they are "doing it wrong". They also don't in large part listen to Blues or Jazz. These generes of music are supported mostly by white people. I work as a musician and I see the crowds. It is rare to see any Blacks under 35 even in attendance. I also work at a school and my white students are far more knowledgable of different types of traditionally considered "Black music" meaning Soul, Jazz and Blues. Most of the black kids are all about hip-hop, rap and nothing else. Which I am not knocking I like Hip-hop and rap too. I came up in the era of that music but I also listened to other things as well. So don't knock this guy for loving and supporting the music that Blacks long ago turned their back on. I am being honest here, before Ray came out young blacks laughed at his music. I even had one 20 something kid tell me he didn't think Ray Charles could sing!!! Thanks to Jamie Foxx, who I truly respect, this has changed and young blacks at least know who Ray Charles is.go </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Taylor is one of the sexiest men around right now due, in large part, to his dancing! He's got this I-am-what-I-am attitude with his unconventional moves and his gray hair and THAT is sexy!!! It's not necessarily those things in and of themselves, but what those things say about him. If you don't understand him by now, you never will so I'm not responding to this garbage to change your mind. I'm just trying to give you a little insight into what other people see in him. If you are the type who equates a person's talent with their dancing ability, then you were probably one of those people who thought Vanilla Ice was "awesome, dude" . . </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

American Idle is the appropriate name. Simon is a drone and Taylor Hicks is the most refreshing singer, dancer ( a Steve Martin happy feet clone ) to grace that show since it began. Who cares about his spastic moves, just enjoy his in your face I am having fun and am still here attitude!uil </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>
