singing contest in the boob tube are almost endless. We got American Idol and The X Factor. We also have our own version franchised from these international shows that boast local talents with a mixture of local and international judges. One great example is “The Voice Philippines” with judges such as Lea Salonga, Black Eyed Peas APL, Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo. Other local TV programs boast of local divas who host the shows including Regine Velasquez. Dont forget “The One Million Peso” Karaoke Challenge by Jaya and Allan K which i dearly miss. With the same formula, what makes these shows different from one another? Two shows stood out though – American Idol USA and The Voice USA. All programs has their own merit but American idol produces the most successful newcomers in the music industry. Grammy Award Winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, Oscar Award Winner Jennifer Hudson, David Cook, David Archuleta, Jessica Sanchez to name a few. The Voice USA however boast of its great concept and the like-able judges – Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguillera, Ceelo Green and Adam Levine. Plus mega producer Usher and Hot Temptress Shakira Clipped some amazing episodes from both shows and then some… enjoy
This year, American Idol has proven to be one of the biggest event in the POP music world as it delivers two new voices set to invade local radio stations and global stardom which will keep the records straight – will the girls beat the boys ass? or vice versa?
Ive been a converted fan of AI 2 years ago when they brought together two DAVID’s in the forefront of music machinery. Then comes Adam Allen competition that has sparked rumors even after its finale.
This year, they have brought in undoubtedly a great set of singers (excluding Teflon Tim) which showcases mainstream and independent artistry. Dwyze voice has a good commercial quality that would rival current rock stars including Daughtry matched with a cute smile. Bowersox however would bring in a new mix to the endless mainstream voices that was bugging our eardrums all throughout the day. Her passion for music and undoubtedly superb vocal skills may have proved to be the decendant of old souls that we grew to love. Make way for the next Eva Cassidy and Katie Melua.
At this point, your blogger cant make a fucking decision on who to recommend because both deserves to win. Anyway, at this point, both will have a great career – win or loose!!!
Michael Lynche or commonly known as BIG MIKE has opened up a new following to one of the most outstanding voices from an artist from non-mainstream arena – India Arie. Ive been a big fan of Arie even from the time she sung her first hit song VIDEO.
Im just glad that Big Mike gave a fine performance on this outstanding song that encapsulates our vivid love and giving ourselves unselfishly – surrendering everything to HIM.
DIDI says ‘goodbye’ this week at American Idol. And her last entry to AI is a Jimmy Ruffin’s Motown hit. Teary eyed and very emotional, DIDI may have been voted off but her voice still lingers in me as she is one of my favorite ‘idols’ this season. I just wished that she used the studio version rather than her LIVE rendition. Or maybe, she should have used her guitar and played it all acoustic matching her subtle voice.
For me, i just hoped she used Joan Osbornes peg as she had done a marvelous job with the song. Full of hope though her heart may have been bleeding. I took the liberty to attach the oroginal version of Jimmy Ruffin so i hope youll enjoy it!
ADAM LAMBERT‘s most recent performance in AMA MUSIC AWARDS has indeed cause huge screams amongst the music industry. The performance itself has raised eyebrows from some conservatives and skeptics. But for some, including me, LOVED the performance.
The performance itself is just a reflection of the song ‘For your entertainment’ which may have been ‘why’ did they use the S&M theme. Listen to the lyrics and watch the video.
can you handle what i’m about to do
i’m about to turn up the heat
i’m here for your entertainment
When Adam Lambert paints the town red… he meant it. For the past few months, Adam Lambert were hitting American tabloids and the internet for his ‘extra curricular activities’.
Well… at this point everything is OUT in the open and so are these pictures I have garnered in cyberspace. Apparently he has tons of photos of himself kissing with with some dude online that were posted on “Vote for the Worst’s message board“. But on a positive note — it appears that Adam Lambert is not promiscuous, the photos BELOW are of the same guy.
