Outsold. Outclassed. Out-talented.

The numbers are in.

And Taylor Hicks sold 298,000 copies of his self-titled debut album...which at first glance doesn't appear too shabby until you remember that about a month ago, Daughtry sold 304,000 of his self-titled debut album in his first week.

I wonder how it feels to lose the "debut self-titled album sales" competition to someone that was originally marked as the third runner-up to YOU...

It must be really tough news to take.

It's gotta hurt bad.

Real bad.

Jru, Jru, Jru.

Taylor did just fine. That's a nice total from a guy that's definitely NOT selling Fuelstainedthirdeyeblind knockoff crap. And he's getting zero radio play to boot. Those sales are all from his fans. He's kickin' the crap outa 'Tasia, and will still be a John Mayeresque million copies an album guy five years from now.

And DAUGHTRY? He'll be wowin' them with his new tattoo with his name on the front so he can actually read it when he forgets his name.

Oh, and for the record, Taylor still won. Ha ha.

Chris beat him by 4000 copies.I didnt realize that is the new 400000.First week sales dont determine long time success.If im correct didnt rubens debut sell 400,000?Heck carries album didnt even debut at #1 but didnt she rank higher on the chart than chris this week.Kellys album sold less than her debut in its first week but hasnt it sold 11 million worldwide?yeah and expect a huge surge this week in sales this week and well see whos laughing then.oh yeah chris had a single out but taylor on the other hand didnt. Taylor isnt rock like chris is,Hes in a genre most people who buy music dont listen to.Its been months get over it.(i liked paris the most though)

Yah, and George Bush won the election, but I still hate his guts. Sometimes, the voters just don't know what is best. Hicks, no. That simple, no.
