Taylor Hicks is ‘Teen Angel’

Taylor Hicks ‘Grease’-ing his way into acting

CINCINNATI — Although he’s never done any acting, “American Idol” Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks thought that a Broadway show like “Grease” would be an effective lubricant for his career.

And even though his character, Teen Angel, has only one number in the show, Hicks was still able to make an auspicious acting debut suspended in an ice cream cone 45 feet over a Broadway stage.

On Jan. 20, he reprises that feat when the national tour of “Grease,” in which the American Idol plays the part of Teen Angel, the spirit that tries to convince Frenchy to finish high school.
