How about last years winner, Taylor Hicks?
According to Star magazine, behind Hicks aw shucks image is a diva attitude that would put Whitney Houston or Beyonce Knowles to shame.
For instance, sources close to the show say Hicks started becoming difficult when he made the shows top 24 and became conceited and cold by the time he made the top 8.
In fact, he once reportedly threw a temper tantrum because he wanted to go the bathroom by himself, and used to ignore anyone who approached him during tapings.
But things really came to a head when Paula Abdul gave all the finalists pieces of jewelry that were supposed to represent their personalities.
Insiders say Hicks made Abdul cry when he looked at the piece picked out for him, rolled his eyes and left the jewelry on the table.
