Back in 2006, Taylor Hicks won American Idol. Now, in 2018, he's going to be cooking wild rice in Lansing. Huh? According to the Lansing State Journal, Taylor will be in the Lansing area on Wednesday to tape an episode of his show, State Plate that airs on the INSP network.

They aren't releasing many details about his Lansing visit, but apparently Taylor Hicks will be filming a cooking segment about wild rice at a private residence in Lansing. He has other Michigan destinations on his itinerary including Grand Rapids, Shelby and Kalamazoo.
