THANKS so much, wisgalb, for posting the picture. I love your new avatar, too. :up
I don't remember the Teen Angel character in the movie. I've seen it several times, too. I must have to leave the room just before he appears, lol.
Regis and Kelly in the course of announcing next week's program schedule, stated that Taylor Hicks and the cast of Grease on Broadway will be on the show(13th), so those of us away from Broadway will at least get a sense of what this version is like.
Wow! Looks like Taylor's getting quite a bit of hype for his stint in Grease. Glad to see it. (The Idol folks didn't exactly show him a lot of respect as one of their winners this past season.)
I'd love to see Grease while Taylor's in it as well as Max Crumm and Laura Osnes, but New York is on the wrong coast.
I'll bet Taylor's take on "Beauty School Dropout" is just a bit different from Frankie Avalon's. :lol
Here's a link to an article about Taylor that's too cute:
Taylor Hicks Admits: I'm a Jonas Brothers Fan! - Jonas Brothers, Taylor Hicks : People.com
I wish I could paste the picture that goes with this, but I'm tech-challenged.
Here's the article:
Taylor Hicks is used to being the object of adoring fans – but when the Jonas Brothers made a TV appearance in New York, the American Idol swapped roles.
Hicks, who is currently starring in Grease on Broadway, couldn't resist partaking in Jonas Brothers mania with thousands of other fans outside of the Live With Regis & Kelly studios in New York City Thursday morning, he told PEOPLE.
"Once I arrived and saw all the Jonas Brothers fans, I got in on the screaming. We were all having a great time out there," said Hicks, who grabbed a sign from a fan and proudly held it up when the band arrived for the show. "We were all just being fans and that's a cool thing."
Asked if he's really a true fan, he told PEOPLE "I am!"
"What they do is awesome because it gets kids into music," said Hicks who was at the ABC studio to tape a performance of "Beauty School Dropout" for the show's Broadway Week celebration, to air on Friday.
"They are a classy act," he added, noting that Nick is his favorite Jonas Brother because "he's the leader of the band."
Sadly, Hicks didn't get to bond with the guys. "I just saw them in passing. They’ve got some pretty heavy security."
In addition to starring on Broadway, Hicks is busy recording his second album, which he hopes to release in the fall. "I love New York. I'm working on Broadway and it’s a great way for me to get my feet wet in acting and a great way to season yourself as a performer," he said. "I've been able to breathe more as a songwriter, having the time and being able to find the right songs."
Here's the pic roses...I was just coming here to post that article anyway... :teeth
Taylor is such a sweetie :blush
I don't know if I believe that he knows the names of the guys in the band, but it's great that he gets out there and acts like a regular fan and screams and whoops it up.
I can't believe I scooped you! ;)Quote:
