Taylor Hicks: Interview with Donna Reynolds Idol Thoughts and Foxes on Idol Writer

I recently interview Donna Reynolds she writes for Idol Thoughts and Foxes on Idol. Here is some of the interview.

What do you feel made Season five so popular?
The show has gained popularity every year, but I think season five was the most talented to date, and it was well-balanced in terms of musical styles. There was something for everyone – whether that is country, pop, rock, R&B, or Taylor!

Why do you think Taylor Hicks has become so popular?
Taylor is a musician, not just a singer or performer. His musical roots go deep, and he appealed to all of us who were sick of the cookie cutter pop singers that have long dominated Idol. Taylor “feels” the music and was able to bring the audience into his performances. I also think that his acknowledging his fans on a weekly basis made them fiercely loyal.

Have you got to meet Taylor?
I have not met Taylor (yet). He was very well-insulated, and I was not able to make a connection. I'm working on it, though!
