Bye Bye Mr. Hicks!

Monday, January 7, 2008

It seems winning American Idol is no guarantee of future success. Taylor Hicks has apparently been dropped by his label, J Records, after his first album failed to make much of a splash. "Taylor is going to record on his own for the next album," a label rep said, without offering further details.

Ruben Studdard, who won the season prior to Taylor was also supposedly dropped from the record label. He is currently working on his new album, but it just won't be distributed with the label.

Season 7 of Idol begins next Tuesday on FOX, I just hope it produces more talent like Kelly Clarkson, not these guys. ;)
