American Idol winner Taylor Hicks on Dr Phil

American Idol winner Taylor Hicks makes a special appearance on DR. PHIL to talk about the impact of a sudden fame on his life. Hicks and America’s psychologist met for the first time at a Sunset Boulevard diner before Hicks won the title. On the show, he admits to Dr. Phil, “I wanted to throw in the towel right before I auditioned for American Idol. I think that was kind of my last straw. I remember auditioning … I was so 180 degrees from the people that were trying out. I was the overweight grey-headed guy, sitting in the corner by himself, looking like one of the contestant’s fathers on the show.” Hicks and his band will also perform “Just to Feel That Way” from his self-titled CD.
