Alicia Warrington (August 30, 1980) is an American drummer. She has played drums for Kate Nash, Kelly Osbourne, Lillix, Hannah Montana, Uh Huh Her, Gore Gore Girls, Dawn Robinson, The All-Girl Boys Choir, The Dollyrots, The Bruises, Tracy Chapman, Selena Gomez, Colton Dixon, Chris Rene and others. In December 2018, Alicia signed for American professional wrestling company WWE and started working for their NXT brand, (using the name Alicia Taylor) as the host of the post-show. As of the April 25, 2019, episode of the NXT show on WWE Network, she is the show's ring announcer, replacing Kayla Braxton, who moved up to an interviewer position on SmackDown.

Early life

Growing up in the small town of Saginaw, Michigan, Alicia Warrington wanted to either be a musician or a professional wrestler. "My mom started taking me to wrestling matches when I was four years old," Alicia says. "Most kids wanted to go to the circus – I wanted to go to wrestling matches. I even had all the action figures."

Alicia was raised in a single-parent home and grew up listening to music from all different genres. "I grew up with my grandparents playing Polka music in the house, my mom always had the R&B and classic rock (Anita Baker to The Beatles), my sister was getting Ozzy tapes banned from our house and my uncle was pushing Queensrÿche, Dokken and Quiet Riot at me. I love MUSIC. Period. If it's good, I'm going to listen to it, I'm going to play it and I'm going to be influenced by it—in one way or another. I grew up listening to absolutely everything and today, you will find [just that] in my collection. I like everything from En Vogue to Lamb of God."

Around 11 years old, Alicia taught herself how to play drums on her uncle's drum set by watching and listening to other drummers. She learned songs by playing along to cassette tapes of her favorite bands. As a teen, Alicia performed in metal and punk bands in Michigan and began touring at the age of 15. After 2 years of college, Alicia packed up her car and moved by herself to Los Angeles.

Career

Alicia got her big break in 2002, when she replaced Kelly Osbourne's drummer on MTV hit reality show, "The Osbournes". Alicia performed on numerous award shows and television programs with Osbourne, as well as toured in over 11 countries, with bandmates Devin Bronson, Josh Paul and Mat Dauzat. She also appeared on Kelly's 2003 album Changes as well as a DVD, Kelly Osbourne: Live at the Electric Ballroom.

Alicia followed up that success drumming for Canadian pop artists Lillix, Disney's mega-hit series Hannah Montana, Selena Gomez, Dawn Robinson of 90's Funky Divas En Vogue, Uh Huh Her with Leisha Hailey, Gore Gore Girls, Colton Dixon from American Idol and as of March 2012, The X Factor's Chris Rene.

In 2015, she started her own band Dohrn.
