Taylor Hicks' victory in the fifth season of "American Idol" presents a mighty challenge for label J: How do you take a charismatic physical presence that wowed voters and convert his unexceptional vocal talents into mass-appeal hitmaking? Hicks' long-term prospects seem preposterously slim (29? Purple velvet?) and first single "Do I Make You Proud" is an insipid bid for acceptance beyond the pageant's borders. The Billboard Hot 100 has traditionally propelled "A.I." winners to No. 1, thanks to robust post-finale sales, and Hicks will likely triumph. But in terms of seeing his name on the single charts a year from now, our bets side closer to the Ruben Studdard column than to Kelly Clarkson's. —Chuck Taylor

I've never understood the billboard chart....at least with the past couple years. I know they combine sales and airplay and digital sales and crap, but looking over some of the #1 songs..... There were a couple I wasn't sure if I'd even heard before. And "Since You Been Gone" NEVER made it to number 1 on the Hot 100. That song was huge.
 
Ok that was kind of off topic but I am really curious to see how Taylor does when his single comes out.

The Hot AC Chart is irrelevant? I guess I'll stop reading it now for my job. I wonder if I can tell my boss that. Well, JNP said it was irrelevant...

I'm pretty sure Nsync only made it to the top of the hot 100 once, It's Gonna be Me. Even if you don't like them, nobody can say they weren't successful. So the hot 100 is irrevelant :P

u dont have to top the hot 100 to be relevant
 
but to place high on it is crucial :-P
 
so far only Kelly has managed to have multiple songs in the top 10
 
doubt any other idol contestant ever will
