Taylor, Dude, You're the Dude

6/28/2006 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Hicks: click to watch!Taylor Hicks (and many others) showed up to Social Hollywood in LA on Tuesday night but it was all about Hicks. It seemed as though he was approached by one aspiring business partner after another - all wanting their own personal "Idol."

The "American Idol" winner was seen by TMZ's Josh Levine leaving the the Hollywood hotspot surrounded by paparazzi and possible future hook-ups ... er, business colleagues.  At one point it got so bad that he needed a police escort back into the club while waiting for his car.

Good for Taylor though ... it seems that the head of the Soul Patrol has a good handle on how to deal with the many clinger-ons that will hound him in Hollywood.

I am 54 and Mother is 79. We are in love with everything about Taylor and have been from his first appearance on AI. We voted every week and are so sooo happy to see him as the big winner. He had some tough competition and beat them all! Go soul man!

It's so refreshing to see a nice, cleancut, polite young man. And so attractive. I am anxiously awaiting Taylor's first album and solo tour. If you bothered looking beyond all the American Idol hype, it was really quite easy to see that there was a serious, talented musician just waiting to share his heart and soul with the world. Love you, Taylor.
