Please don’t blow it, please don’t blow it, please don’t blow it…

crazy

Less than 24 hours from now, it will be water under the bridge.  I hope he’s well received, I hope we don’t get “let down” … again.  *wrings hands*  I’m angsting so much, I figured it would be helpful to just get it off my chest, just unload all the bad things I’m imagining could happen … and … and … SOMEHOW it will avert the evil gods of fate, and all will go well tonight.

Please, oh please, let it go well tonight.

Bad Things Which I’m Sure Will Happen:

*He’ll forget the lyrics.  Yes, of course he will.  *sigh*

*His hair will be all fucked up.  Yep, the “bowl-cut” cometh.

*He’ll reach into his pocket for the harp, and it won’t be there.

*We’ll see Bill Will come scooting out onstage with the harp.

*He’ll call Ryan “Bill”.  *cringes*

*He’ll trip.

*Something will be unbuttoned, unzipped, or untied.  Or something will be buttoned up crooked.

“He’ll accidentally sing “Do I Make You Proud” instead of SMB.

*He’ll wait for Ryan to give out his numbers to call in and vote.  And hold up 7 fingers, to help us remember.

*Daughtry will accidentally/on purpose be in the audience.  Scowling.

*He’ll proudly admit to being “Teen Angel” … omg, what if he comes out wearing the pompadour?  *pulls out hair*

*He’ll yell out “Soooo……  ” … I can’t even type it.  *cries*

    I’m confused as to why this is such a big deal. Just enjoy the show and his performance! He’s getting that massive exposure that everyone is wanting him to get that hopefully will spike his much needed cd sales.

    Obviously Taylor is taking the high road on this by going back to perform on AI, I think his fans should too. Just MO.

  2. Now be cool, Honey.
    I just saw him last week and his hair is much too short for the bowl-cut.
    He hasn’t said THOSE words at all lately (but it’s on his guitar strap).
    He WON’T forget the harp but he may forget the lyrics ….and yeah, he may try to play the harp (with brace) and guitar at the same time….but he’ll LOOK beautiful.
    And the whole thing is making him happy. His confidence level is high–thank you, Grease— and I’ve petitioned every angel and saint I know and given up on the angst.
    Que sera!

  3. taylorfan06 Says:

    I agree with cf. Taylor will do GREAT! He’s a pro on stage.
    Take a breath and just enjoy the show. WE WILL BE ENTERTAINED.

  4. suze4158 Says:

    I can’t wait. But part of me wants to throw up at the same time.

    I think it’s the knowing that this is important exposure for his career.

    However, Taylor has “been there done that” with AI and other tv shows. He’s gonna be great.

    I am hoping he shows a bit of attitude, though.

    SMB is a song that fits him well, and just pray to the good Lord that he gets to have his band and play the heck out of that stage like he has so many times before.

  5. IAG, I’m SO surprised to hear how you are fretting over Taylor’s AI appearance! LOL I thought it would only be the “mother hens” all in a tizzy with worry. I felt nervous about it a week ago when we all first found out about it. I felt like I did when my son was the pitcher for his championship game, or my daughter about doing a beam routine at a meet. Stomach in knots, legs shaking…. But now I’m not at all. I don’t know why, I just feel very confident that he’s going to do a great job. Maybe I’m just not letting myself imagine all those things that could go wrong, but even if he screws up a little, I don’t care. Remember he’s very confident now and has had all this performance experience behind him from Grease. I truly feel that Taylor is on the way back up, especially after the GAC experience tonight. I’m more worried about AI screwing him over somehow than him screwing up majorly.

    It might be better if you don’t watch. Just wait till after and watch the videos. LOL (I’ve done that before when my nerves just could not take it.)

  6. casualfan Says:

    I don’t think AI will “screw him over”. Taylor will go up there, do his thing then get the fuck out of dodge. Business is business. T knows how to take care of things…maybe we will get a twitter out of him before he hits the stage. 😉

  7. jerseyirish Says:

    I am not worried about his performance, he will be perfection. I am worried Simon may say something negative or just put a damper on his appearance. I was really excited not worried at all until I read what Simon wrote in TV Guide, the man had no class as far as I am concerned.

  8. dancingqueen Says:

    I’m just going to enjoy the fact that they finally are having him on the show. What will be will be. I expect to see a shot of Bill in the audience with the caption “Taylor’s Friend” on the screen. 🙂

  9. Thanks for the laughs IAG!! Doesn’t he look Just like Steve Martin in this pic??? Please let tonight not be a joke! I have a good feeling about it though. Positive energy…… :=)

  10. Life is entirely too serious in Taylorland. I’m not really wringing my hands over this. It was my (apparently) poor attempt at humor.

  11. LOL! Well, yea, I realized most of your “worry” scenarios were tongue in cheek, but I really DID get the idea that you were fretting about it by the title, and the fact that a couple of them are distinct possibilities. 😉

    “Life is entirely too serious in Taylorland.” TOO TRUE! That’s why I was surprised to see you “wringing your hands.” You fooled me, LOL!!

  12. I’ve told everyone I know to watch tonight…..it’s even on my facebook profile (LOL). I know T won’t let ME down.
    At least it wasn’t pre-recorded (right?)
    🙂
    ………and if his fly is down, he’ll be the talk of the town!

  13. I wonder why he was so evasive about the band question? One thing that will disappoint me is if he does the acoustic version with the harmonica band. I want to see him rock it out, and do a smok’in harp like at CDN.

    Did anyone vote for him last night in the GAC “fight?” Going to happen again tonight, just after he sings on AI. I find that funny – voting for him after he performs on American Idol! I was voting for him and my AI favorites at the same time last night. I hope I didn’t get the text numbers confused and vote of Adam on country radio, and Taylor on AI. 😀

  14. jerseyirish Says:

    iag, Got the humor thought it was funny, hopefully he has his own checklist, so all is buttoned and zipped!! Was just plain excited about him being on the show tonight, then Simon spoils things a bit with his nasty comment.

    I listened in last night and called the number. But midway through I lost the connection to the station and couldn’t get it back. I heard Taylor won last night and will be back on tonight, thats great.

  15. spinshack Says:

    No time this a.m. life calls, but crossing my fingers. Later peeps/tweets.

  16. ahhaha..oh Grey….that might be my favorite blog post. hahaha!!!

  17. Heh. I swear, my money’s on:
    *He’ll yell out “Soooo…… ” … I can’t even type it. *cries* ”
    Because…why why why should he stop doing confounding things at this late date?

    My #1 “good thing that might happen” (aside from performance matters) would be that Taylor’s got a really funny, charming line ready to deliver to that fragile little girl, Simon Cowell.

  18. Perfect, IAG!! You should go check out the scary boards… they’re a hoot!
    LOL!

  19. rajrae – “I wonder why he was so evasive about the band question? ”

    I think I missed this. Someone (interviewer?) asked him if he’d have his band with him? Was that recently? What was the response?

  20. “You should go check out the scary boards”

    What are the “scary boards” these days? That used to refer to the AI site.

  21. Ha! I thought it was pretty funny! 😀

  22. hicksaholic Says:

    True I was wondering that too.

  23. True asked: “I think I missed this. Someone (interviewer?) asked him if he’d have his band with him? Was that recently? What was the response?”

    A fan did a M&G in Portland just last Saturday: “I asked Taylor if there was any chance if he might have any members of his band play with him Wednesday night for the AI show and his response was “Maybe, wasn’t sure, hadn’t made up his mind and etc. etc.”

  24. Maybe they’re talking about T’s appearance on the AI site? But I’M not going to look. You first! Ha.

  25. “and his response was “Maybe, wasn’t sure, hadn’t made up his mind and etc. etc.””

    Right.

    Thanks very much.

  26. I think YKW was probably referring to the AI boards. Although, these days, there are a few others that could be referred to as the “scary boards.” 😆

  27. casualfan Says:

    rajrae – “I wonder why he was so evasive about the band question? ”
    ——————————————
    I don’t think he’s being evasive but I think that he feels the question isn’t important to answer and to be honest, it shouldn’t be. Some fans tend to get way too nosey during those m&g’s and if Taylor isn’t comfortable answering a question, he does get that way.

  28. casualfan Says:

    I am not worried about his performance, he will be perfection. I am worried Simon may say something negative or just put a damper on his appearance. I was really excited not worried at all until I read what Simon wrote in TV Guide, the man had no class as far as I am concerned.

    JI
    ———————————————————-
    We don’t know if Taylor’s performance will even be live. Sometimes, as with David Cook-they pre-tape those performances, especially if the musician is on a tight schedule. If that’s the case, then no…Simon won’t say anything and I doubt he will say anything to Taylor anyway.

  29. True – good to see you girl.

    Regarding, the SP Shoutouts—I’ll never forget your “ship” thread on those “scary boards” right after he won AI … oh the drama it caused when you said Taylor should stop the SP shoutouts. If only those fantards would have calmed the fuck down and ‘listened’ to you (and others) instead of thinking they could control Taylor’s fate! Hindsight is 20/20, but I always felt that you were way ahead of that curve.

    I think those fans who wanted those shoutouts to continue after AI did so out of a sense of entitlement. Ya know, they voted for him so now Taylor “owed” them this. *rolls eyes* Even when I was entrenched in the “fandom” (and believe me, I totally was) I never felt that way … All I ever wanted from Taylor was good music.

    Hopefully tonight, we’ll get some.

  30. True said: My #1 “good thing that might happen” (aside from performance matters) would be that Taylor’s got a really funny, charming line ready to deliver to that fragile little girl, Simon Cowell.

    _______________________________________________________
    LOL, Yeah….. 🙂 I’d pay a small sum to see that, too!
    Excellent S.C. description.
    Taylor is usually really gracious with this stuff, though.

  31. Breathe into a paper bag, gf. Think happy thoughts: Taylor playing harp on the pool table, Taylor singing IAOK, Taylor’s boots. Now let’s all sit in a virtual circle and channel Ray to give our boy strength and confidence. We’ll all get through this together.

    (He’s gonna kill!)

  32. Snowstorm Says:

    There’s no doubt in my mind that Taylor is going to totally rock that place. 7 Mile is an awesome song! I think some people, who lost track of him, are going to be totally shocked.

    Regarding the SP shoutout, if he does it tonight, then the guy is a total idiot. It’s a shame he didn’t listen to fans who knew way back then how totally lame the shoutout was. He pandered to the old ladies who voted for him…not very smart of him.

  33. Snowstorm Says:

    I highly doubt that Simon will say anything to Taylor. So far, the judges have not spoken to any of the performers. But, you never know, I guess.

  34. casualfan Says:

    I too hope that Taylor skips those SP shoutouts. They are lame and outdated. He’s finally realizing that not all of his supporters want to be associated with the SP. Good for Taylor!

    (He’s gonna kill!)

    Oh Caryl, it’s like you know me so well.

  36. OMG, I just thought of the greatest thing for Taylor to do tonight. I was thinking that he needs to do something outrageous to get people talking about him the next day. Remember when Clay came on that one year with a make-over? His hair was black and combed down on his face? People talked about that.

    Here we go. Here’s the idea. Are ya ready? Here it comes. Wait for it…

    Taylor walks out with dark hair. That’s rght DARK hair. The audience is aghast. His fans are shocked and disappointed. People run for the exits. (OK, maybe not that last one. ANYWAY..) Then he pulls off a wig, revealing his trademark gray, tosses it at Simon and rocks the house.

    Right? Huh? Don’cha think?

    (I may have had too much coffee.)

  37. Um, Caryl. You crack me up!!

    😆

  38. I like that idea so much I’m gonna post it again on my blog so my readers can have a chuckle. They’ll both enjoy it. (haha)

  39. casualfan Says:

    Well I know I will get slammed hard for this, but I wasn’t all that impressed with the pool table gig. All I saw was a drunk man paying the harp. Sorry, but it just didn’t do anything for me.

  40. Sojie! It’s so weird & wonderful seeing you around. I think my favorite thread from back then might have been the green thread, you beautiful, beautiful people hold on to your love. LOL! That’s still the one Hicks original I seriously like, to this day, especially with the blues break.

    Yes, what I and the other people in on that ship/course correction thread were going for just after the win was to try to lead a shift away from being reality TV/voting fantards (as we ALL were, including me, big-time), and toward being regular music fans. Like, shifting gears might be appropriate now. Give him some space to develop, don’t be Claymates, and (yes, I said it) be prepared for him to drop the SP thing because he needs to put some distance between himself and the crappy show in order to build a career as real musician.

    Yeah, SP freaked; went ballistic on me like forEVER. How dare I suggest he would not devote his life to the Soul Patrol?! “He loves us and he always, always, always will and you’re a big liar, False North.” It was childish and absurd.

    And in the end, Taylor himself buckled at the first whiff of controversy (response to Relix interview “fizzle out” thing). I remember I used to tell the fawning SP, “Let the man keep his balls.” Turned out he wasn’t that attached to them anyway. LOL! What a waste of effort. (Just my opinion, you know?)

    Anyways, it’s nice you remembered that. I feel all warm and fuzzy now. And now I’m going to finish my taxes. For who needs warm and fuzzy feelings? yannno?

  41. Snowstorm Says:

    caryl, um NO!

    Are you off your meds, hon? Just kidding!

    Just imagine yourself under him on that pool table, with him looming over you, the sweat….um.

    *gathers up inner fangirl and puts her back*

  43. HA Caryl! You’re joking, but wow, would that EVER cause a ruckus. (an actual dye job rather than a wig.)

    He’d be on the damned NEWS tomorrow. Viral Youtube. ET. Leno. Bwaa haaa.

  44. Nah, it’s all good, CF. I liked it cuz he was being a badass standing on a pool table. My kids get screamed at if they put anything on our pool table.

  45. I’m not nervous at all just excited. That is because I disagree with True’s assesment of Taylor not keeping his balls. His balls are intact even moreso than 3 years ago and he will or won’t shout soul patrol based on his whim and his alone. Thought Iag was humorous.

  46. Mercy, my balls post did not show up. I stated I’m not nervous about tonight, just excited. I diagree with True saying Tay lost his balls. His balls are intact even moreso than 3 yrs ago. Should he shout out SP or not it will be his whim and his alone. I got Iag’s humor and smiled.

  47. jerseyirish Says:

    Caryl, Love the wig throwing at Simon idea, would warm my heart. Maybe he could have Bill throw something from the audience, like a water balloon.

    Rosie, If he does or doesn’t shout out its all good!!! 🙂

    JI

  48. Well Rosie, I’m a strict marker. You shouldn’t go by me.

  49. OK, That was worth repeating!

  50. IAG! You’ve shocked me again – you let the fan girl out. LOL That’s twice in one day, though the first time shouldn’t count. Cant’ say I mind the imagery… OK, you all know I don’t know ANYTHING – what’s this about a “Pool Table” gig and the “ship” thread??

    Caryl, you were joking but wow, that would be something to see. I bet people would really freak, first to see him “dark,” and then let loose when he pulled off the wig. What a way to loosen everybody up for SMB? I love it! PLEASE let it be with the band!! NO ACOUSTIC version! I will cry if he does that.

  51. Hey, I got my 31 yo daughter to watch the harp solo clip from CDN! I’m sneaky.. her little boy loves his harmonica (see my you tube video) so I sent her the clip to show him for “inspiration.” (I’ve shown him other TH harp videos when I had him here.) I was hoping it would inspire HER too. 😀 She said he loved it and wanted to see more. I emailed her back that T’s doing that song on AI tonight (she and son-in-law hate AI) and I hoped he would do the harp solo. Also told her that he’s coming to Ft. Worth in Sept for Grease and if he does a shadow concert I’m coming over there dragging her to it with me. Said I would go to Grease with her if she wanted.(She loves the movie.) Eager to see her response.

  52. Warm us up a little for tonight? Dayum, I can hardly keep that fan girl at bay when I watch this!

  53. jerseyirish Says:

    rajae, Awesome thanks for posting, tonight can’t come soon enough. I’m sure he is gonna take the place down with his harp playing, hopefully even Simon.

    JI

  54. How’s this for fangirly? Taylor baby, play me like your favorite harp…

  55. littlewing Says:

    Looking forward to a riveting performance tonight. Not nervous at all, well, not yet anyway. Lord knows, he couldn’t sound any worse than poor David Archuleta did last week. I think he’ll leave ’em all agasp and smiling and talking about his performance for weeks! *adjusts rose-colored glasses* Seriously tho, if any one of the winners could light a fire under everyones arses, it would be Taylor!!! Go Taylor!!!!

  56. jerseyirish Says:

    Rosie, Good one hahah!!! 🙂

    littlewing, Totally agree when he takes to the stage it’s like magic. Told the family I’m off duty from 9-10 don’t even ask for food or anything for that matter during that time!!! 🙂

  57. rajrae: Here’s the pool table harp:

  58. blueberry Says:

    I was clueless, as well, about the pool table harp. Thank you Caryl for getting all of us in the loop.

    I won’t be watching this evening, but if he preforms like that, minus the pool table, of course, he’ll capture some hearts and minds. Enjoyed and laughed at (with) the concerns you posted, iag.

  59. Ah memories, Tay at Martys all scruffy and tan last Oct4th just after returning from the islands. Even Morph was perving. None of us knew then that on Oct. 7th, his 32nd bday, he was going to announce a new CD. So it hasn’t been dull since that night he hopped on the pool table.

  60. OOPS, sorry IAG – I thought I was posting a link – didn’t mean to embed it. Hope that is OK.

    Blueberry!! Not watching? Sacrilege!! 😉

    OK, I happen to LOVE him up on that table. Very sexy! He had to have either had a lot to drink or had a lot of confidence to do that. One night I saw a guitarist hop up onto the bar and walk down it (or strut I should say) while playing his solo, and thought it was pretty cool. (Might be common though – I have not spent a lot of time in bars. LOL)

    Well, I should not be getting all worked up over someone Taylor’s age. I need to get back my self control….. No more harp videos for a while for me after today. I just can’t control fangirl when I watch them.

  61. Snowstorm Says:

    Just found out Jamie Fox is on Idol tonite. It’s gonna be party night tonite! Jamie Fox and Taylor Hicks in da house.

    Blame it on the aaaaaa alcohol!

  62. Snowstorm Says:

    Taylor on American Idol Extra tomorrow. I believe this show is on the Fox Reality channel.

    http://t.love.com/208892002

  63. blueberry Says:

    Rajrae – no need to control yourself – if it works for you, it does. I think you have alot of company!

    My not watching is not by choice, but no worries, I know this will be covered all over tonight and tomorrow. I look forward to reading everyone’s take on his performance; which begs the question…. why do I look forward to this so much? I guess I’ve really gotten caught up in the moment – the excitement, the handwringing, the Simon reaction (which I think will just be a goofy smile because he’s not that stupid or brave to say what I’ve read he’s said in front of Taylor). Hope everyone enjoys!

  64. Seven Days Says:

    OK, I’ll admit it, I’m a little nervous about tonight. Haven’t figured out quite why yet, but I am. It’s not ruining my life or anything so don’t get me wrong. Just hoping he’ll do well I guess, and hoping his music will be taken seriously.

    Loved the blog today — cracked me up, especially the part about waiting for Ryan to give out his numbers! 😀

  65. Since it feels like a bit of a time warp tonight . . maybe should keep an eye out for Charcoal . . . just a thought . . .

  66. charcoal Says:

    Yea, that way there would be, like, a live chat or something?

    Like on a website? That would be cool right?

    Of course, I probably won’t make it seeing as that I don’t have a TV and all. Would one need a TV to enjoy this event?

  67. hicksaholic Says:

    Is that clue? I’m clueless.

  68. “Ah memories, Tay at Martys all scruffy and tan last Oct4th just after returning from the islands. Even Morph was perving. None of us knew then that on Oct. 7th, his 32nd bday, he was going to announce a new CD. So it hasn’t been dull since that night he hopped on the pool table.”

    What was the deal with that? Did he just show up and start singing with that band? They seemed a little sheepish or overpowered or something. LOL

  69. hicksaholic Says:

    Sorry, a clue

  70. Definitely sounds like an inside clue of some kind.

  71. hicksaholic Says:

    I think if I remember correctly he and Bill showed up at the bar right after their return from some island vacation. He just sat in with the band I think and general consensus was he had had a few drinks or whatever prior to performing.

  72. hicksaholic Says:

    I think Charcoal is pretty mysterious. Notice how he just shows up right after his name is mentioned. It’s magic I tell you.

  73. charcoal Says:

    What?

  74. charcoal Says:

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic

  78. JumpedtheShark Says:

    I’m not narrow-minded, and I’m totally cool.

  83. From Tay’s MS Blog:

    American Idol & Seven Mile Breakdown – Country Mix

    Have you listened to the new Taylor Hicks’ “Seven Mile Breadown – Country Mix”? This Taylor track was JUST added to his myspace page!

    Don’t forget, Taylor is on American Idol tonight too! The performance will be LIVE on Fox at 9/8c. Hope you’re as excited as we are! Be sure to check both out!!

  84. Also, Taylor & SMB go against Martina McBride at 9:00 on GAC Nights Fights.
    Listen here: http://www.975ycountry.com/

    Vote AFTER they play both songs:
    1-866-942-gac1 or text your vote to 66937 fights “space” and who you want to win!

  85. JumpedtheShark Says:

    I will Snow. 😉

  86. rajrae . . Charcoal the Obscure is referring to this website http://www.graycharles.com/

  87. Ok, so the “mix” that’s he going to sing on Idol is on his myspace page. Anybody listening?

  88. I heard it on the GAC Nights show last night. It will be on again at 9 Central. I’ll listen on MS later after voting on GAC for him. I don’t know if he’ll sing the country mix on AI or not. I just hope he plays the harp!

  89. JumpedtheShark Says:

    I’m listening. I like it. Nice!

  90. JumpedtheShark Says:

    OMG, already 3 texts from friends telling me Taylor is performing on AI. Such loyal friends lol.

  91. Live chat at Gray’s.

  92. I’ve got my wine and on the web cam with my sister in Texas. She opened a bottle too. 🙂

  93. JumpedtheShark Says:

    OK so SMB doesn’t quite go with the them tonight lol. Listening to Natalie Cole……..

  94. JumpedtheShark Says:

    theme

  95. He blew it….. out of the ball park. Taylor just kicked ass and took names. Simon even stood and clapped. Hell just froze over!!!

  96. Simon doing his take on “graciousness” for the TV cameras. He’s the douchiest.

    Good for him! I’m glad Taylor did well and showed Simon what he can really do! As I said from the beginning…Seven Mile Breakdown is the HIT on that cd and very well may become Taylor’s breakout song. 😉

  98. *sigh*

    He did good.

  99. jerseyirish Says:

    He was fantastic tonight, just perfection and a standing ovation from Simon, even he was shocked at that one. I think this will be the hit he is looking for, I think this is the one that will do it!!! 🙂

    JI

  100. I give him an A+ for rocking it out, his look, his conversation with Ryan, his instruments, and his stage presence of a star. That man loves him a stage and takes full advantage of it. Now damn it radio better play it and people better be able to find it at Target and Wallmart. My Walmart has never had it and Target has been out for 3 weeks. Hope he immediately starts singing it after Grease.

  101. JI, he so deserves this to be a hit. It came across better than even I expected and to think people were worried about how he would do. He is a pro. That song Foxx sang was painful.

  102. Redrosespeedway Says:

    Holy hell he’s bloody shiny again! hahahaha! Just got home, just watched Idol and LOVED him – Oh man, he was gorgeous. Lyrics fit and he sounded GREAT! Plus he wore my favorite outfit with boots – and did you catch that sun in the vid behind him? hahhaha. (I’m an idiot, I know. ha.)

    Loved all the expressions on those judges’ faces! ahahahaha!

  104. Hey…chat at Grays.

  105. spinshack Says:

    Oh man, I’m absolutely smitten again. It’s like that you know in a long relationship. Highs and lows. hahahaha I’m so happy for how he did tonight. So happy. *bouncing about*

  106. spinshack Says:

    You have a chat? Where?

  107. AHAHHAHAH!! Spin!! I can’t keep the fangirl in, either. She’s been trying to escape all day.

  108. spinshack Says:

    What?

  111. spinshack Says:

    When did this happen? Nobody wrote me, called or sent a note?

  112. I was going to send the horse, but she needed new shoes.

    Yes. I have no idea what that means. I think Taylor fucked with my head.

  113. OMG OMG! That was just adslf;jasf;ljsf fantastic!!! *faints with fangirliness*

  114. spinshack Says:

    My fantard is screaming. hahhaa Just have to let her run. Wild horses and all that.

    That was some great Southern-fried country blues. Standing O from the judges! Wow, that’s more than I expected. My son who is 20 and doesn’t care for Hicks, was listening and remarked “hey, this is pretty good” The husband thought he sounded good. Coming from these two, that’s saying a lot.

    Taylor was great! Absolutely loved it and 7 Mile is a winner! The well deserved standing ovation was so great to see. Did you all know that Taylor was #1 in Google searches today? Wow!

  117. I posted the video in a new thread.

  118. I think that even Simon saw star quality. My apologies to all you Glambert lovers, but Taylor showed the way to do it; he wrote the book on how to entertain and make the most of your minutes. Thank heavens he did not appear earlier in the season and sing WRIR. This way he was seen by many for the first time rocking out with his guitar and as a real musician. He was a long lean rocking bluesy queen. I’m all atwitter!

  119. Oh Bless you Grey, thanks now I will go relive it.

  120. “OMG OMG! That was just adslf;jasf;ljsf fantastic!!! *faints with fangirliness*”

    LOL Christa!!! Did you enjoy that or something?

  121. spinshack Says:

    He made me absolutely creamy – as said in my post. Did you see how he loved me tonight… it is all about me you know. hahaha. Sun vid backdrop was stellar. ha.

  122. spinshack Says:

    Tandjam rules. I will forever and always pay her respect from this day forward. I have been the occasional ass, that I do time to time, but she is The Stuff.

  123. “Did you all know that Taylor was #1 in Google searches today? Wow!”

    WOW is right!

  124. Sojie, what are you googling to find chatter?
