Bet you didn't know ... Taylor Hicks was booked to perform at a BCS Championship pre-game event today.
Bet you ALSO didn't know ... the guy almost missed his flight due to a national weather crisis that's grounding planes across the country.
But the most shocking part ... Hicks says the only reason he was able to catch a flight is because he has super powerful airline connections that pulled some strings for him.
So, in conclusion ... Taylor Hicks still has star power.
Somewhere, Lee DeWyze is jealous.
