- Top 6 Guys performed "Summer of 69" and after that they were sang "Heaven" song!! Bryan Adams showed up and sang "Til I Saw You" his heart out!!

- Gladys Knight performed "Midnight Train To Georgia" with backup singer Ben Stiller,Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr (Jack Black is crazy and stood out from the rest).
- Carrie Underwood performed "Last Name". Woah,she wore very mini dress. I was nervous watching her perform,afraid if she might have had major wardrobe malfunction!! Anyway this performance was the best this season!!!Nobody could outsang her!!
- Top 12 performed "George Michael songs"!!!Amanda Overmyer still looks awkward,I couldn't stand watching her this way.
George Michael performed "Praying For Time". Great performance and gave me chills!!
* I think no one surprised me tonight because I already knew about the guests spoiler LOL no fun,huh!!!
* I'm so nervous,it's killing me!!!!!My heart's pumping so fast like crazy!!!
* Where's Paula Abdul performance with Top 12????All Idol winners performance together???

The winner is David Cook. Congratulation for him and his fans!!! I'm so sad and bummed right now but nevertheless may he have great success and David Archuleta did so great tonight especially knowing that he lost. Although I didn't like the coronation song sang by Cook,if Archuleta sang it,it might've been so much better (only my mere opinion!!)

>>>>Let's celebrate how massive this season was especially with huge fanbase of (I think) Top 9. Let's be kind to each other and not bashing each other's favorite. May God bless all of the Finalists and great success for all of them.

American Idol 7 Finale Performances

What a wonderful night tonight,even Andrew Lloyd Webber joining in to coach both of the Davids. Tonight's performances definitely blew me away.

Round 1 (Clive Davis' Song Choices):
- David Cook - I Still Haven't Found What I've Been Looking For by U2
When I heard about what the meaning of the song was,I expect the performance to be a showstopper performance but it turned out to be a mediocre performance. What a disappointment,he got the better song that David Archuleta but couldn't deliver.

- David Archuleta - Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Elton John
I had goosebumps everywhere when I watched this performance,it's a fantastic performance and he sang the hell out of him. A song that I considered might not do good for him,did him an amazing performance.

David Archuleta won the 1st round by a landslide

Round 2 (Top 10 Songs List from Songwriter Competition):
- David Cook - Dream Big
I think this was the best performance of David Cook tonight. The song is very catchy and I loved his performance.

- David Archuleta - In This Moment
In the middle of the song until the end,I had goosebumps again. This performance was so good that my younger brother who is a fan of David Cook thought that this round goes to David Archuleta and this was David Archuleta's best performance to date.

David Archuleta won 2nd round for me

Round 3 (Contestant's Pick):
- David Cook - The World I Know by The Collective Soul
It's a good performance I thought,but I really confuse as why he didn't perform the best he could tonight!! Some people think that he's bringing progression and diversity on the song choices tonight but it's a round up of "good" performances from David Cook. He's had so many greater nights before than tonight.

- David Archuleta - Imagine by John Lennon
It's as perfect as the 1st time he sang this memorable performance.

David Archuleta won the 3rd round

Who's the winner tonight?? It's 100% David Archuleta,he terminated David Cook throughout the night. At the night that I predicted David Cook would do great and might give David Archuleta the run for his money,unfortunately he failed to do that. I hope David Cook the success and I want David Archuleta to win because he deserved it and he proved it tonight by going out and gave it all his got.

Was tonight a bloodbath battle?? Not certainly,from what I remembered,Carrie Underwood vs Bo Bice was more neck to neck than tonight's battle.

To Simon Cowell: your boy failed you,it's pointless what you've done to promote David Cook's name all over the talk show.

The Chronicles Of Narnia:Prince Caspian Movie Review

Do you still remember the first movie where Aslan defeated the White Witch?? Well,in this movie the Pevensie siblings have been living in real world for 1 year although it's already passed 1300 years in Narnia world.

In Telmarines Kingdom,Prince Caspian (played by Ben Barnes) who supposed to be an heir to the throne after his father,is facing a dangerous treachery from his uncle (Uncle Miraz) who just had a son born that night. By killing the Prince,this evil uncle could get the throne of that kingdom. Fortunately the Prince is able to escape from the soldiers' pursuit and saved by two Dwarves. They are Narnians,they almost extinct because of Telmarines especially with Aslan gone,some of them just don't have any hope anymore.

Before Prince Caspian being saved by the dwarves,he able to blow Queen Susan's horn which made the Pevensie siblings who are waiting on the train station magically back into Narnia world. With four siblings back and Prince Caspian's ability to get support from all Narnian races like centaurs,minotaurs,dwarves,etc, they are ready to fight back the Telmarines army that already closing in in order to pursue Prince Caspian and eliminate Narnian once and for all.

Could they win that impossible battle???Where is Aslan??What is Telmarines Kingdom??The answer can be found in this movie.


My review (warning spoiler ahead) : this sequel of Narnia is brilliant and fantastic,it's way better than my expectation because it's surely beat the first one. In this movie you're going to get a lot of scenes with Aslan in it that can make you cry because you might relate to the story (I cried 3-4 times watching this movie). The battle is extraordinarily heart pumping amazing although I prefer if the director extended the battle a bit longer because when the going get interesting,the battle is already over (long battle like in LOTR won't hurt),and what the hell with the controversy about too much violence in this movie??!! Even myself back then when I was 13 years old or younger surely able to watch this movie,the head cutting isn't explicit,the blood is only a scar not like in the gore movie.

This movie is very funny especially because of the swashbuckling mouse (Reepicheep),he's so brave,funny,elegant,cute and all things that you'll find endearing.

The most important thing that missing from this movie is the ending where I don't understand exactly why Aslan has gone for quite long times,and lot of question which haven't been answered by this movie's ending. I feel that the ending of the movie is like the transition in LOTR which in 1 year,you'll get another sequel to continue the previous scene.

Great scenes in this movie: White Witch's resurrection,god of the river attacking the army,the trees annihilating the army,every Aslan scenes and the night attack on Telmarines Kingdom by the Narnians.

American Idol Season 7 Marathon

Thank you so much Star World for airing American Idol this season back to back for 3 whole days,maybe I only slept less than 5 hours since Friday LOL

After watching the whole season,I'm certain now that I will miss this season's contestants when this show finished,especially David Archuleta,Carly Smithson,etc. It's like I've just watched their entire journey and it's reminiscence that so great I almost had teary eyes watching their journey.

I hope the Finale will be great,there are rumors circulating on the internet that Clive Davis is going to pick one song for the Finalists. WTF!!! Why they don't let the contestants decide for themselves which song they will sing.

Finger crossed that the Finale will be great. I hope it's as bloodbath as it can get.

American Idol 7 Top 3 Result Show

We all can be happy that our wish comes true which is David vs David Finale. Syesha Mercado went home today and I hope she'll have success on her own through Broadway,movie,etc. The chance for her to outlast one of the Davids is unlikely.

It's time for David Archuleta fans to make sure that our favorite will win the Finale no matter what. Please vote as hardest as you can be for me because I can't vote since I don't live in US. Vote like there's no tomorrow!!!

Homecoming clips tonight were great and very touching,I almost had teary eyes myself watching them.

And WTH!!! with Fantasia??!!! It's like she's a completely different person,even Simon's jaw dropped when he was watching her,her hair looked weird,the song was weird and everything was so strange. Well,she's still a singer that can sing her heart out even though tonight's performance was very strange.

If David Archuleta wins American Idol this year,I'll get 2 of 4 right. Since I predicted on Season 4 when Carrie auditioned that she will win and she did. Season 5,my fave Katharine McPhee stalled on runner up position and on Season 6,my fave Melinda Doolittle got robbed BIG TIMES!!! on 3rd position T_T

American Idol 7 Top 3 Performances

Round 1 (Judges' Picks):
1. David Archuleta (he was so good singing this song,it's pretty much heavenly and vocally flawless. Loved it!!!)
2. David Cook (he could've moved to my #1 if he sang it pure subtle like the original version but he up the tempo in the end so I gave him A when he could've made it A++ performance) ALMOST-PHOENIX-OF-THE-NIGHT
3. Syesha Mercado (Randy is so stupid picking this song for her,it's very mediocre performance and it didn't give her anything to defeat the Davids)

Round 2 (Personal Choices):
1. David Archuleta (watch out David!!! He almost forgot the lyric and when he did that at those moment his face became so awkward. Overall,I enjoyed this performance and I was laughing all the way because it's so funny)
2. Syesha Mercado (Paris Bennett did this song better. I don't know why Syesha didn't pick a song that will be a great song for her to make it in the Finale even though she already pulled Haley Scarnato with the short dress,it wasn't helping at all)
3. David Cook (the song was too short and it's very predictable)

Round 3 (Producer's Picks):
1. David Cook (amazing performance,it wasn't his best performance but it's great)
2. David Archuleta (lovely performance as always)
3. Syesha Mercado (Did the producers want to sabotage Syesha?? It looks like it. It's bad song choice and it will got her eliminated tomorrow)

The best tonight is David Archuleta (slightly above David Cook),and my prediction Syesha will go home tomorrow.

It's beyond me that Randy and Simon bashed the contestants in round 3 because of the stupidity of the producer's song choices. You should've ranted at the producers,both of you!!! Not the contestants,stupid!! Next season,the producers must not be allowed to pick a song for the contestants!!

American Idol 7 Top 4 Result Show

Bye bye Jason Castro,at last the vast numbers of Castronauts couldn't save him. I'm so happy for Syesha,she deserved to be there and I hope she'll do well next week. I don't want her to think that she's expendable and perform mediocre.

Maroon 5 & Bo Bice performed tonight. Bo Bice is still one force to be reckoned with,I remember back then I was afraid on the finale of Season 4. He's so strong and he and Carrie run neck to neck. I think if he compete in this season,he would destroy David Cook easily IMHO

Group performance tonight=disaster (why they're getting worse every week,it's beyond me)

American Idol 7 Top 4 Performances (Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame)

Tonight's performances were suck as well,I can't stand it anymore. Why this season is so bad compares to previous seasons?? Heck,I even would put Blake Lewis there to make the show more interesting. When I saw Rascal Flatts sit in the audience,I wanted them to perform so much because how horrible the performances were. I miss Carly too (sob)

Round 1:
1. David Archuleta (a breath of fresh air tonight,loved this performance,way in different league than the others)
2. Syesha Mercado (good performance,she looked like she's in the zone and did whatever she could to win)
3. Jason Castro (unique song choice but bad and mediocre performance)
4. David Cook (mediocre rock performance for contestant as caliber as him)

Round 2:
1. David Archuleta (he must win this thing,if not that would be disastrous for the show)
2. David Cook (great performance. Well done,David)
3. Syesha Mercado (little bit worse than round 1 performance but it's not that bad,the judges have been very hard on her. I hope she'll last another week)
4. Jason Castro (oops he forgot the lyric,why so many of this season's contestants forgot the song's lyric like David Archuleta,Brooke White and him. It's REALLY bad!!!)

Who goes home tomorrow?? Jason Castro (I've had enough of his laidback attitude. If he doesn't want to win this thing then he should go home)

American Idol 7 Top 5 Result Show

Brooke White went home,it's time for her to go home,heck even last week she should've been gone home but I applaud her for being able to perform 1 great performance yesterday (I Am... I Said)

Natasha Bedingfield performed "Pocketful of Sunshine" and she kissed David Archuleta. Aww,that's so cute.

Neil Diamond performed "Pretty Amazing Grace"

Simon Cowell got to hear from his first crush who kissed him when he was 9 years old LOL

Next week's theme: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (I don't know what it is)
