#TheVoice and #AmericanIdol tops my list


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

a song for Mike


 

 

 

I dedicate this song to my ‘ex’ whom i have a love-hate relationship with.  Its not because we have had a bad break-up since we are still talking with each other — with oceans apart between us.  its just that he often ask ‘why’ and ‘what’ happen and sometimes, words are not enough to define what we have.  so the first time ive heard Jennifer Hudsons rendition of ‘One Night Only’, i instantly sort of think about him.  Mike…this is for you.

 

One Night Only

by Jennifer Hudson

 

You want all my love and my devotion

You want my loving soul right on the line

I have no doubt that I could love you forever

The only trouble is, you really don’t have the time

 

You’ve got one night only, one night only

That’s all you have to spare

One night only, let’s not pretend to care

One night only, one night only

Come on big baby come on

One night only, we only have ’til dawn

 

In the morning this feeling will be gone

It has no chance going on

Something so right has got no chance to live

So let’s forget about chances, this one night I will give

 

You want all my love and my devotion

You want my loving soul right on the line

I have no doubt that I could love you forever

The only trouble is, you really, really don’t have the time

 

You’ve got one night only, one night only

That’s all I have to spare

One night only, let’s not pretend to care

One night only, one night only

Come on big baby come on

One night only, we only have ’til dawn (We only have ’til dawn)

 

In the morning this feeling will be gone (Be gone)

It has no chance going on

Something so right has got no chance to live

So let’s forget about chances, it’s one night I will give

One night only, one night only

Come on big baby come on

One night only, we only have ’til dawn (Nothing but one night)

One night only, one night only

There’s nothing more to say

One night only, words get in the way (Nothing but one night)

One night only, one night only…
