Also, Alabama's Taylor Hicks was crowned the fifth "American Idol"
I haven't followed American Idol, but I knew Hicks was the underdog, especially when people repeated how old he was (with disgust, I might add). I correctly suspected that he's much younger than he looks... he's 29 years old! Ageism is a bitch.
More than 63 million votes were cast, "more than any president in the history of our country has received," Ryan Seacrest said.
That's really pathetic... but hooray to Hicks!
