#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 people who secretly falls in love with their BEST FRIENDS…


 

This Lea Salonga classic helped me to let go.  I just like to share it with friends and if ever you found yourself on the same scenario, always hum this song and I hope it would help you the same way it helped me.

 

FRIEND OF MINE

(Version by Lea Salonga)

 

I’ve known you for so long you are a friend of mine

But is this all we’d ever be

I’ve loved you ever since you are a friend of mine

And babe is this all we could ever be

 

You tell me things i’ve never known

I shown you love you never show

But then again when you cry

I’m always at your side

You tell me bout the love you’ve had

I listened very eagerly

But deep inside you’ll never see

This feeling of emptiness

Its makes me feel sad

But then again… i’m glad

 

I’ve known you all my life you are a friend of mine

We know this is how its gonna be

I loved you then and I love you still, you’re friend of mine

Now, I know friends are all we ever could be

 

You tell me things i’ve never known

I shown you love you never show

But then again when you cry

I’m always at your side

You tell me bout the love you’ve had

I listened very eagerly

But deep inside you’ll never see

This feeling of emptiness

Its makes me feel sad

But then again,

Then again

Then again

…i’m glad
