X Factor US Finale Result


The Top 12 sing Edge of Glory,might as well be called edge of cliff for their trainwreck vocals. So awful!!! Really badddd!!!

I thought Mariah Carey gonna come out to sing with Melanie. Oh wow seeing Melanie cry makes me cry too,so emotional!!

Very nice!! We can't expect a good vocal from Chris,but this is pretty good. Awww at his kid. So cute!!

The conversation with Nicole is painful to watch.

How they edit this pretape performance with the judges interacting like that?? Were the judges wore the same dress like tonight for few weeks ago?? How if they decide to change outfit for the finale result?? Wow Drew better watch out for those death threats from Beliebers. I bet they're so jealous with her right now.

I thought he gonna win or at least went 2nd.

Rachel's elimination will never gets old. I need to see more of those judges's reaction. Priceless!! It's weird watching those nostalgia clip without any sort of emotional investment at all. Different with Idol where usually I'm invested in some contestants heavily.

More filler like Simon vs LA clip,and that 50 Cent & Astro performance where his words got bleeped so many times. Oh what's the point of that performance?? Nicole and Paula cry off is funny. Melanie and Josh duet are okay. I don't like the song. I hate Pitbull & Ne-Yo performance.

Yay!! Melanie won!!! At last,female winner since 2007. Too bad few hours ago I accidentaly got spoiler from the internet,although I was already trying to avoid any major news website. The last ending is so awkward. Steve trying to buy time asking Melanie tirelessly,the whole moment is so awkward and anti climactic. We'll see how Melanie's career unfold. She needs a great song first.

X Factor US Finale Night - Melanie Amaro - Listen



Holy shit!!! I was truly blown away!! I doubt that Melanie could outperform her first audition performance. But she did it!!! Fantastic performance!! This is the best that she can do!! I think tonight was the best finale night on any singing show since Carrie vs Bo back then on 2005.

X Factor US Finale Night - Chris Rene - Young Homie



Wow amazing,I have to give it to him!! Looks like Chris gonna win based on tonight's performances. I'm very impressed that tonight he delivered two of his best performances on this show. I was very amazed!! Great job,Chris!!

X Factor US Finale Night - Josh Krajcik - At Last



Superb version of At Last. Very good performance!! Although his face mannerism when he's really into it scares me a bit.

X Factor US Finale Night - Melanie Amaro & R.Kelly - I Believe I Can Fly



Urgh I'm so disappointed. They can do much better than bringing R.Kelly as Melanie's duet partner. I expected more than that. The most important song in the last 50 years. Really?? The performance itself is solid enough but Chris Rene won the 1st round hands down.

X Factor US Finale Night - Chris Rene & Avril Lavigne - Complicated



Oh wow Avril!! Chris really looks like a star up there. He didn't look intimidated at all. Great job!! I love this performance albeit his voice sounded really shaky at the beginning. LOL at Chris's neighbour and that old rehab woman.

X Factor US Finale Night - Josh Krajcik - Alanis Morissette - Uninvited



Are we suppose to judge this? I'm surprised that suddenly Alanis coming out of nowhere. It's weird,judging a performance with guest artist in it. I don't think the song is suitable for Josh,it's rather somber.

X Factor US Top 4 Result Show


Hands down the best group performance ever on this show!!

Possibly the best performance from any guest artist on this show. Wow I was enchanted by her performance. It's so shocking that I like this performance since Florence usually not my cup of tea.

Yay for Melanie!!

LOL at Nicole's introduction clip showing only her sluttiness!! Nothing else!! Yes,you're only pretty Nicole!! No other talent than that. A lot of female out there must've been weeping since Nicole doesn't want to be pretty anymore.

I hope Marcus can continue to pursue his dream. I wish the best for him. He's seriously dedicated guy,for sure.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Hallelujah



Why this song?? Why????? LMAO at Nicole trying so hard to feel this performance. It was awful for me. WTH Paula cried??

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Feeling Good



Didn't Simon know that this is a curse song?? Everyone who sang this song got eliminated or if they're lucky,they were in bottom 2. Case in point: Adam Lambert. It was okay all the way for me,the last note sealed the deal though. Only that last notes which were amazing.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Chris Rene - No One



With those montage about his dad,I'm certain he gonna be the highest vote getter tomorrow. His performance is fairly good,although when he's dancing it seemed a bit all over the place for me.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Marcus Canty - Careless Whisper



Wow at the song. Really?? Luckily,it's uptempo and current enough. Better than my expectation.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Come Together



It's good,however it's the weakest version of Come Together I've seen on this type of show. Carly Smithson did a fantastic job with this song back on Season 7 of American Idol.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Hero



Oh God,how I hate this song!! It should be in a banned list forever!! But Melanie did an amazing job,changing some chords of the song. Made it a bit different. I don't care anymore about Simon's "bloody fantastic" comment since it doesn't mean a thing coming from her mentor.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Chris Rene - Fly



I love this catchy song,but Chris vocal seems so weak. It's very mumbly performance. Overall,it's pretty fun and enjoyable performance though.

X Factor US Top 4 Performances: Marcus Canty - I'll Make Love To You



I'm a sucker for 90's love song. It brings nostalgic memories to me. Marcus did a good job singing this song. I'm sure women all over America will be flailing over this performance.

Friday, December 09, 2011

X Factor US Top 5 Result Show



Thanks God,Melanie Amaro is safe!! Yay!!

There's no denying that Marcus has the ability to convey his emotion to the viewers. But he's been in bottom 2 too many.

She really sings this song for her life. Truly fantastic performance!! 100% her best performance!!

Unbelievable!!!! Fuck you,Nicole!! What a coward!! Why the fuck she send it into deadlock?? This is what happened when you assume certain thing will happen,and shocking thing happens. Bring back Cheryl Cole,please!! I've just had it with these female judges.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Chris Rene - Where Do We Go From Here



It's nice seeing him singing his own original song. Overall,it's just okay for me.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Something



I'm blown away!! Fantastic performance. He should be careful with those scary faces though. It could scared some voters.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Rachel Crow - Music and Me



I don't know the song,pretty underwhelming performance to me.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Marcus Canty - A Song For You



Wow!! This is definitely his best performance so far in this competition!!

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Melanie Amaro - When You Believe



This song was my favorite song on that particular year back then. I thought she did an amazing job with it.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Chris Rene - Live Your Life



The beginning sounded awful but it's pretty entertaining toward the end. Good job!!

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Josh Krajcik - We Found Love



I thought he gonna sing Coldplay's song judging by the sound of the violin. Anyway,I think he did a good job with this Rihanna's smash hit. I like it!! His vocal is great as always. I didn't know that he could sing a dance song this good. Josh looks like so embarassed watching those judges bickering like children.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Rachel Crow - Nothin On You



Better than last week,for sure. But I hate every Bruno Mars songs,it's not even funny.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Marcus Canty - Ain't Nobody



Why LA put those sexy dancers with Marcus again?? Because that didn't go well with his voters base,I think they're upset that Marcus didn't show them his good boy charisma. The song is rather pointless for me,it's not a strong performance.

X Factor US Top 5 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Someone Like You



Is she singing Adele song?? Wow I really love it. I really really enjoy this performance. Probably the most enjoyable performance from her. Very current. Too bad it's too short!!! FYI,although everybody loves and worships Adele,I don't share the same enthusiasm with them. I'm rather neutral about her.

Friday, December 02, 2011

Scotty McCreery Performed The First Noel on CMA Christmas



I really love this!! Btw Scotty looks so tanned!!

X Factor US Top 7 Result Show

Solid group performance!! I think this is the best they ever sing.

Wow Rachel Crow is safe???
I don't care for Tinie Tempah. Whatever!!

I had a feeling last night that Drew might be in bottom 3. Sigh. Didn't expect Astro to be gone tonight.

AMAZING!!!! Truly one of the best performance ever on this show. Beyond my expectation.

Trainwreck performance. Awful song

Urgh I already predicted that if Drew in bottom 2,Paula and Nicole might prefer Marcus over her. Sigh. This is devastating!!! Thanks God,I'm not emotionally invested in this show or I might vent all night long.
Wow at Simon's angry face!!

Thursday, December 01, 2011

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Earth Song



Just okay for me. The judges way overpraised her!! I can't stand the jubilation over Michael Jackson's legacy. I feel like in Michael Jackson's worship temple. I love MJ songs but please don't be over the top.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Chris Rene - I'll Be There



Just boring!! My mind is wandering around when I watch this performance.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Marcus Canty - Pretty Young Thing



His hometown church members must be horrified watching Marcus as his performance is getting more and more into the PG-13 territory each weeks. LOL at MJ's youngest kid reaction after Marcus backflipped.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Rachel Crow - Can You Feel It



Very underwhelming. I didn't feel it too. Although I love the spectacle.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - Billie Jean



She will always be performing like this. I guess there's no point hoping for variation. Also,I'm pretty worried that if she sing uptempo song,she will get booted like Pia. Anyway,very strong vocal. I like it!!

ps: can't they stop with the worshipping at the altar of Michael Jackson?? It's getting too much.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Astro - Black and White



Haha I'm sure VFTW will be having a field day with those photo of Astro. I see that he changed his earphone to Sony. The performance itself is pretty amazing,I love his completely fresh take on that song. I enjoyed it.

X Factor US Top 7 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Dirty Diana



Solid performance!! I'm sure those stage props are very difficult to be move around.

Friday, November 25, 2011

X Factor US Top 9 Result Show


Blink and you miss it!! Kelly performed Stronger very early on the show. The last time I really really love Kelly's song was the Breakaway era. Still waiting for another one,so far all the songs she's been releasing not that great,only good. Urgh,Steve Jones is so stiff!!!

This is the best group performance ever!! I love watching the circus costume and all the props. Tired of hearing Pink songs though.

Finally,Lakoda Rayne is gone!! They should be grateful that they lasted this long. Paula should've put through The Brewer Boys instead. I'm sure they will last longer than any of the groups.

Bruno Mars song haunts me everywhere I go. There's no escape from it. But I have to say this is a fantastic performance.


Already predicted this outcome.

Marcus Canty performed You Lost Me by Christina Aguilera. He did a good job!! I believe it!!

Leroy Bell performed Don't Let Me Down by The Beatles. This is the best he's ever done. Great job,Leroy!!

I already assumed it will go down to deadlock. I feel bad for Leroy. I hope he can get a music career out of this show. Salute to his persistence.

Thursday, November 24, 2011

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Wild Horses



His story somehow resonates with me,especially the broken hearted part. Stunning performance!! Just plain awesome!!

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - Skyscrapper



Still a solid performance from Drew. I'm waiting for her big breakout moment again. Oh wow at LA Reid and Simon bickering again. So tiresome!! I don't understand why LA Reid don't know this song is a Demi Lovato song.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Astro - Show Me What You Got



I just can't stand this kid's big ego but certainly he got talent. I don't get bored watching his performance. That says a lot!! I can't say the same for the other contestants though.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Leroy Bell - Angel



Oh God,I feel so awful for not feeling anything at all watching his performance. Maybe Leroy's voice and singing style just not my cup of tea.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Lakoda Rayne - You Belong With Me



Why the heck they picked this song?? This song is not suitable at all for the one they sing it for. Oh God,are the judges smoking crack? Their vocal is rough. No chance at all for America to buy their album. They still looks amateurish.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Chris Rene - Let It Be



Just okay!! It gets better in the end though.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Melanie Amaro - I'm The World's Greatest



A solid performance from Melanie. I don't like the song though,it reminds me of that African kid performance in American Idol. The lyrics seems weird to me. I hope the conservatives out there will vote in droves for her though. Wow why's she suddenly crying and giving speech with her native accent? Talk about an awkward moment on TV.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Marcus Canty - Mama



Salute to her mom's determination. This is a beautiful performance. Everyone will feel it. Lots of moms in America will vote for this guy tonight.

X Factor US Top 9 Performances: Rachel Crow - I Believe



One Direction's song used in the background when Steve introducing Rachel. Really,Simon?? Anyway,she looks great. She sings great. This is one of her best performance indeed. I really enjoyed it.

X Factor US Top 10 Result Show

I forgot to post this on the day of the result show because I couldn't find the link to watch this show:

Group performance of We Will Rock You is terrible. Ouch Leroy for forgetting your turn again.

Holy shit!! Leroy Bell and Lakoda Rayne are safe. There goes my points!!! I still don't know who makes up the voting base of this show.

Rihanna looks bloated. This song is familiar. Ow Katie Stevens from American Idol Season 9 sang this song on youtube.

Bottom 2 are Stacy and Astro. Shocking!! I thought Astro is up there on the top.

Oh God!! Way to pander to the judges and viewers!! Please go home,Stacy!! You can't sing!!

I can't stand this kid's big ego. I've been tolerating him for these past few weeks. Now,I'm over it.

Astro should be grateful that he got more talent than Stacy. Or he will be send back to wherever he came from. So much drama on this result show!! Most entertaining indeed!! They should do it every weeks like this. Btw Stacy can go back to her God,Xenu.

Thursday, November 17, 2011

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Marcus Canty - Piece Of My Heart



Awful performance. I don't like it. I'm sure his church members will be disappointed with him.

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - With Or Without You



I love this. Although I'm waiting for her to pick up her tempo somewhere in the performance. Still I don't want her to stray away from her style of singing,because it works. Anyone who doesn't like it,screw them!!

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Lakoda Rayne - Go Your Own Way



Paula,don't go there please!! Dixie Chicks is million times better than these girls ever be!! Their performance is fun but I don't know if America will save them for that.

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Astro - I'll Be Missing You



Great song choice!! Probably one of his best performance. I like it!! He hasn't bored me yet!! That's a PLUS!!

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Josh Krajcik - The Pretender



Easily the best performance of the night. I'd say this is Josh's strongest performance so far too. I love it!!

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Everybody Hurts



Pretty good performance. I'm so tired watching the judges bickering over the definition of a rock song. It's getting old FAST!!!

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Stacy Francis - It's All Coming Back To Me Now



Wow she struggles all the way through her performance. Yes,she shows her emotion but this performance is so bad!! Ouch at that bitch face she showed at the judges. A lot of people hated her performance on my Twitter feeds. They complained about her voice not sounded like a human sound. LOL

I hate Steve Jones for interrupting the judges a lot.

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Chris Rene - No Woman No Cry



This performance is better than the previous two before him. I like that he put on the Occupy Wall Street's t-shirt.

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Rachel Crow - I Can't Get No Satisfaction



Too bad Simon raised my expectation before she's even performing. I'm disappointed. Last week was better than this.

X Factor US Top 10 Performances: Leroy Bell - Why Don't You Stay



I'm just not feeling it. I agree with the judges. Looks like the teeth are coming to get Leroy out of this competition. Although their mean comments could rally American votes.

Monday, November 14, 2011

Majors & Minors - Whataya Want From Me



The best performance from any group that I've ever seen this year. These kids are just killing it!!! Adam Lambert did a great job mentoring these kids. Cameron gonna be a star someday!! That boy has a charisma and he got a great voice!!

Friday, November 11, 2011

X Factor US Top 11 Result Show



Very good group performance. I prefer for them to sing live rather than lip-sync.

Willow Smith's performance giving me headache. What an awful song!!



Her outfit is horrendous. Although the song is growing on me. Pretty catchy.



Holy shit,Stacy Francis is safe!! I don't know who the heck X Factor voting base are. For some reason,America don't connect with the groups.



Rough vocal!!



Amazing!!!



Wow at Paula's meltdown!! Why the hell Steve didn't just move on to Simon first?? Let Simon decide first and then go back to Paula if they still got more time. This host is so stiff and not flexible at all. I feel so bad for Paula and the groups. Simon definitely should scrap the whole groups category for next year's season. America hates groups!!

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Rachel Crow - I'd Rather Go Blind



Fantastic performance. I'm blown away.

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Chris Rene - Gangsta's Paradise



His best performance yet!! Although I'm still got bored by his performance.

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Josh Krajcik - A Little Help From My Friends



Great vocal!! This song should be banned!!

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: The Stereo Hogzz - Ain't No Other Man



Hmm I thought I was gonna love the performance based on the song,but it didn't go as far as I wanted to. The vocal is just okay,could be better definitely. I wanted to see more from them,I know they can do it. These past 2 weeks their performances have been fallen short of my expectation. LA Reid doesn't know this Christina Aguilera's song. Are you kidding me??

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Man In The Mirror



Just an okay performance for me. Simon overpraised it!! Please don't sing any song that's been overdone to death. Makes me automatically dislike the performance right away. Tired of the judges rambling rambling rambling.

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Astro - Lose Yourself



Woah,I'm impressed. This kid won't go away anytime soon. Such a talent!! I hate rap but he never made me bored.

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Lakoda Rayne - Somebody Like You



The most exciting performance so far of the night. I love the banjo!!

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Leroy Bell - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For



Why Nicole always trying so hard to cry? I think this song helped Leroy. One of his strongest performance so far.

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - Fix You



The audience should shut up when a contestant perform this kind of song. Their scream etc ruins the whole mood of the song for me. Drew performed as best as she could. Anyway,this song also should be banned. WTH with the movie You,Me and Dupree reference?? Can't Simon find more popular movie title?? Ouch at Paula criticizing Drew's dress. Awkward!!

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Marcus Canty - I'm Going Down



He killed it!! Probably the strongest male in LA Reid's team. Although can we retire this song already??

X Factor US Top 11 Performances: Stacy Francis - Queen Of The Night



Wow at her big forehead!! That distracted me!! Somehow she looks bald to me. With her big forehead,too much makeup,she even looks like an alien. Is she forgetting the lyrics at some points??

Friday, November 04, 2011

X Factor US Top 12 Result Show



Ouch Leroy,your inability of lip-synching is showing. LOL at Astro for forgetting his words. What a trainwreck of group performance.

I never heard of Outasight before.




Holy shit Leroy Bell is safe. Good to know that American viewers voted for him!! Wow Lakoda Rayne is safe. Chris Rene is safe. All of people's predictions on the blogosphere are dead wrong!! A bit shocking bottom 2 for me!! Why the heck they didn't get enough votes??



I love the performance!! Great job guys!!



Looks like they gonna bite the dust. Sigh!!



Urgh,I'm gonna miss these kids!! They are my guilty pleasure and they bring massive fun every weeks for me. Next week gonna be more boring without them.

Thursday, November 03, 2011

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Stacy Francis - Up To The Mountain



Over the top!! I'm so over Stacy at this point!!

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Marcus Canty - Beautiful Girls/Every Little Step



I have personal bias over 90's tune. I enjoyed it.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - Just A Dream



Pretty good!! Although I was very nervous,I thought this was a risk. I hope it pays off.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: InTENsity - Kids in America/Party Rock Anthem



It's good that Paula combined that old jam with the current song,resulting in hip & fun performance.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Astro - Hip Hop Hooray



I'm really enjoying this!! Dunno why,but this is pretty entertaining. Way to go kid!!

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Melanie Amaro - Desperado



Beautiful!! I'm crying. Thanks God for this performance!! I hated it when I got bored on the 1st hour of tonight's show.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Jar of Hearts



I'm thinking of Christina Perri's version throughout this performance. Not a good sign!! Nicole is definitely thinking about his ex boyfriend.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Lakoda Rayne - Landslide



Feel a bit like Celtic Women performance. Although they need a hundred years to reach the same level with that group. Very haunting performance. Fairly decent performance.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Rachel Crow - Walking On Sunshine



She exudes so much confidence,isn't she? However,I hate the song. This performance didn't do anything for me. I'm just daydreaming about something else waiting for this performance to end.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Leroy Bell - I'm Already There



The song is so overdone. He's rushing it a bit I think. Overall,it's pretty blah. I didn't get what I wanted to get from this performance.

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: Chris Rene - Superstar



Urgh the vocal is rough. I can't wait for this performance to end. Pure torture!!

X Factor US Top 12 Performances: The Stereo Hogzz - Rhythm Nation



What happened with their vocal?? It's not good this week. The troops fascinated me. My eyes fixated on them.

Thursday, October 27, 2011

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Girls Eliminations



OMG I'm shaking!! Wondering who's Simon gonna cut!! I screamed when Simon eliminated both of his personal favorites. Yay for Melanie!!!!

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Melanie Amaro - I Have Nothing



The song is cliche and predictable. She almost oversings. But I'm still a fan of her. Simon needs to pick the perfect song for her.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Tiah Tolliver - Sweet Dreams



Weird performance. I don't know what to make of it. Doesn't look like a singing performance to me. More like a freak horror show or something.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Drew Ryniewicz - What A Feeling



Holy shit!! This is the best performance of the night!! I'm blown away!! So amazing!! She still slays me even when I had big expectation of her.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Rachel Crow - Where Did Our Love Go/Baby



What's up with the songs? She looks like being forced to do it. Her worst performance to date.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Simone Battle - Just Be Good To Me



What a trainwreck!! This is worse than Dexter's performance. The song is atrocious,the dancer are useless,Simone looks like a slut!! Total disaster!! LOL at LA hating on Simone!! I don't understand why Simon picked this song for her. Sabotage??

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Over 30's Eliminations



Yippie!! Dexter is out!! Bye bye!!

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Josh Krajcik - Forever Young



Awesome subtle performance,but somehow I got bored in the middle. Maybe the song.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Stacy Francis - One More Try



LOL at the judges bickering and the time limit. I'm just massively disappointed over the song choice. Could be better.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Leroy Bell - Nobody Knows



I'm having a goosebumps watching his performance. Big improvement. Paula agrees with me,I saw a bit of Michael Bolton in him.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Dexter Haygood - I Kissed A Girl/Womanizer



Urgh please eliminate him!! I can't stand it!!!

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Groups Eliminations



NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I'm gonna miss The Brewer Boys. They have such great potential. Sigh. At least all the groups improved their performances.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Lakoda Rayne - C'mon Irene



I love the song,makes me even enjoy this performance. Urgh looks like they gonna cut The Brewer Boys after watching this performance.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: InTENsity - The Clapping Song/Footloose



Very good and entertaining performance!! I'm really enjoying this. I hope to see more from them in the upcoming weeks. They're my guilty pleasures. Leona is a great singer!!

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: The Brewer Boys - Rich Girl/Faith



Hmm it's just okay for me. I expected more from them.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: The Stereo Hogzz - Try A Little Tenderness



Wowwwww!! I'm impressed!! I love this performance so much. They give such a fresh version for this song.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Boys Eliminations



Urgh Phillip is a cannon fodder indeed. LA Reid was the one who picked the song for him. Darn it!! I thought for a moment he gonna let Phillip through because he's a jazz singer. The rest are either R&B or rap contestants.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Marcus Canty - Do You Really Want To Hurt Me



Great vocal,although I'm on the fence on the song. Looks like it will be between Phillip or Chris on the chopping block.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Phillip Lomax - I'm Not A Believer



Is LA Reid sabotaging Phillip? The song is a dreck. Mediocre performance. Urgh.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances: Chris Rene - Love Don't Live Here Anymore



It was such a letdown after Astro's performance. It's just blah. It's going nowhere. LOL at Paula's "genuine artfulness". I miss Paula's crazy quotes.

X Factor US Top 17 Performances : Astro (aka Brian Bradley) - Jump



Pretty entertaining. I'm surprised. Although it will be hard for me to judge a rap contestant in the weeks ahead.

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Lauren Alaina Performed Georgia Peaches on Ellen Degeneres Show



Great pick for the 2nd single!! I love this song!! Congratz for her being the best debut for female country artist since 2006.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (SHOCKER)



HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!! I can't believe what I see right now!! Melanie is in??? YAYYYYYYY!!!! All is right in the world!! I'm so ecstatic right now and in hyper flailing mode!!!! It's the Top 17,y'all!! I love how good each of them looks on that last promo for next week!!

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Melanie Amaro or Rachel Crow)



NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I still upset although I knew the spoiler. I hate it that the music industry doesn't care about big voice singer.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Stacey Francis or Elaine Gibbs)



Elaine had no chance defeating the chosen one Stacey. I hope I don't see the last of Elaine. I love her!! I would say ROBBED!!! Because Dexter went through over Elaine.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (The Anser or The Stereo Hogzz)



We'll see what Paula can do for them in the live show.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Tim Cifers or Marcus Canty)



His mom nearly destroyed his destiny with that 2 years limit. Good for him!!

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Caitlin Koch or Tiah Tolliver)



Shit!!! I don't see what Simon saw in Tiah!! Many people were very upset because Caitlin didn't go through to the live show.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Lakoda Rayne or InTENsity)



Lakoda Rayne need to work out on their vocal harmony. I thought InTENsity got shafted when Paula said yes to Lakoda. It turned out,they both got through. Yay!!! I love InTENsity!!! They will be my guilty pleasure!!

ps: I loved S Club Juniors songs back in the day. No wonder I like InTENsity.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Chris Rene)



Oh God!! Can't they stop using the Coldplay song "Fix You"!!! It will be interesting to see what he can do on the live show. He's one of the bottom contestant on my list though.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Leroy Bell or Tiger Budbill)



I'm so happy for Leroy although he's not my cup of tea. I hope Tiger can find other source of income to support his family.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Jazzlyn Little)



Sigh. She should audition for American Idol. Or maybe she should wait a year to improve on her self confidence. She will surely become a star someday.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Brennin Hunt or Nick Voss or Phillip Lomax or Skyelor Anderson)



Skyelor got no chance. Thanks God,Nick Voss didn't get through. I hate his voice. Although I wish the best for his journey. Brennin Hunt should go through. Phillip Lomax should be an interesting addition in the heavily R&B contestants pool.

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (Brian Bradley)



This kid really doesn't have a single cell of nervous in his body,does he??

X Factor US: Top 16 Revealed (4shored)

X Factor US Judges House - Melanie Amaro - Will You Be There



Why this song?? At least she can still delivers. I hope she gets through.

X Factor US Judges House - Chris Rene - People Everyday



Did they auto-tunes him?? Wow so blatant!!

X Factor US Judges House - InTENsity - That's Not My Name/You Make My Dreams



Wow I'm loving this way more than I expected. That Asian girl can SING!!! They blow the other groups by a miles!!

X Factor US Judges House - Christa Collins - No Surprises



Hmmm. I didn't feel anything at all from her. Maybe because of the song choice.

X Factor US Judges House - Tiah Tolliver - No Diggity



The weakest performance in the girls category!!

X Factor US Judges House - Marcus Canty - All My Life



Pretty good!! He did this song justice. I really loved this song back in the day. Btw why they used that footage of Rihanna saying she's not convinced for the 2nd times??

X Factor US Judges House - Tiger Budbill - Don't Give Up On Me



Great effort,not sure about the song. With the right song,he could really blow me away.

X Factor US Judges House - Leroy Bell - To Make You Feel My Love



Decent performance. Probably not my cup of tea. Everytime I watch his performance,I feel more empathy for his journey so far than being impressed with his talent.

X Factor US Judges House - Rachel Crow - I Want It That Way



Way too somber for me!! Although I'm ecstatic over the song choice. I want it that way!!!!

X Factor US Judges House - Tim Cifers - Dance With My Father



Just okay!! A bit underwhelming to me.

X Factor US Judges House - 2Squared - Bohemian Rhapsody



Very good performance also. Is the girl with the red hair the lead singer of this group?

X Factor US Judges House - Josh Krajcik - First Time Ever I Saw Your Face



What?? He has daughter??? He's 30 and yet he has 13 years old daughter. Wow!!!
Holy shit!! This performance gives me a goosebumps. One of the best!!

X Factor US Judges House - The Stereo Hogzz - I Heard It Through The Grapevine



I really hate that grapevine song!!! Hated it!! They did pretty good version of that song,and they're very likable in this video.

X Factor US Judges House - Brennin Hunt - Like A Star



He wants to be bigger than Lady Gaga?? Way over confident for that. I admit his falsetto is his best weapon. Some of his mannerism is a bit much for me.

X Factor US Judges House - Jazzlyn Little - I Will Survive



Wow this is very impressive version of I Will Survive!! Ouch at that Sevan words about high school talent show.

X Factor US Judges House - Drew Ryniewicz - It Must Have Been Love



Stellar performance!! Made me cry!! I'm surprised that she can make this cliche song sounds like a brand new. She has to make it to the live show or I'm gonna cut a bitch.

X Factor US Judges House - James Kenney - Russian Roulette



How the heck he still have time for family when he works for 5 jobs?? I don't see this guy making it to the live show. Looks like a cannonfodder.

X Factor US Judges House - 4shore - If You Love Me



Too boyband-ish!! Boys II Men are billion times better than them.

X Factor US Judges House - Nick Voss - Everybody Wants To Rule The World



Weird!! Creepy!! Terrible!! Like watching a serial killer serenade you in front of your house.

X Factor US Judges House - Caitlin Koch - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow



Pretty good!! Better than James Durbin's version.

X Factor US Judges House - Elaine Gibbs - Stop Crying Your Eyes Out



Amazing!! Black diva FTW!! I'm certain she's going to impress me if she makes it to the live show.

X Factor US Judges House - Phillip Lomax - Don't Stop The Music



Is he copying Jamie Cullum's version?? I'm still waiting for him to impress me since I've yet to see a strong male jazz contestant in a singing show.

X Factor US Judges House - The Brewer Boys - Only Girl In The World



The backing track sounds to weird to me. It's way too processed in this performance. I think their take on that song is somewhat okay for me.

X Factor US Judges House - Lakoda Rayne - Born This Way (Country Version)



I still see some awkward choreography but I think they gell very well for a new group. I wonder if Paige Ogle will regret her decision to not follow her heart someday.

X Factor US Judges House - Tora Woloshin - Satisfaction



It still baffles me when I see some contestants either from Idol or any show don't know a famous song. How the heck they didn't know that song??? They're the ones who want to be a singer. They should know a massive amount of songs,especially if it's famous. Plus,the lyric of this song is not that hard to memorize,it's the same lines over and over again being repeated.

X Factor US Judges House - Skyelor Anderson - Nobody Knows



I think he's authentic!! He still needs to practice few more years in order to reach the same level with everyone else.

X Factor US Judges House - Dexter Haygood - Crazy In Love



What a fucking trainwreck!! Enrique looked scared!! LOL I hope he doesn't get through to the live show. I can't stand watching his awful performance again and again. Although I feel so bad for his tough life so far.

X Factor US Judges House - The Anser - Perfect



Nice harmony in some parts but there are pitchy spots too. While watching their footage,I'm constantly wondering whether they're gay or not. Since they talked about being not a Mormon,etc. Hmmm.

X Factor US Judges House - Simone Battle - Help



Her best performance yet but I wasn't feeling it. The dress is very revealing!!

X Factor US Judges House - Brian Bradley



This kid really got so much confidence although he's still 14!! I'm curious too whether the viewers will vote for a rapper contestant.

X Factor US Judges House: Quick Review

Since I just found out that X Factor didn't get aired in US last night due to some baseball game. Yet it was aired in Canada. Amazingly,this is the first time that I watched it first ahead of my peeps from US. LOL that's a first!! Here's my quick review:

- The Over 30's must have been disappointed that they got Nicole as their mentor.
- I feel bad for the girls that they didn't get Mariah Carey. Sad!!
- Brian Bradley did a good job singing that song. Prodigy indeed!!
- Simone Battle sang it beautifully. But it's just okay for me.
- The Anser performed their best performance yet.
- Dexter Haygood is just a trainwreck!! LOL at Enrique's scared face. Probably he thought: WTH they let this trainwreck through!!
- Skyelor sang fairly well. He still looks too amateurish to me.
- Why Simon saddled Tori with that song?? I'm shocked that she didn't know this song. The lyrics isn't that hard to memorize,you know!!
- Lakoda Rayne performed a decent country version of Lady Gaga's Born This Way. It's pretty interesting version.
- Stacey Francis blew the rooftop with her vocal.
- The Brewer Boys looked awkward without their instrument. That song sounded weird to me. I hope they make it through to the next round.
- Phillip Lomax did a good job singing jazz version of that Rihanna song. Although he screamed that song in some parts.
- Elaine Gibbs is excellent singer!! I want to see more from her.
- Caitlin Koch still maintains her consistency.
- Nick Voss creeps me more. I feel serial killer aura from him,always!! His voice scares me!!
- Dunno why 4shore sang that song and used that choreography. Too 90's boyband for me. I dunno if it will be commercial for today's music market. Although me personally,I love boyband.
- James Kenney is okay.
- Drew Ryniewicz just blew me away. Watching her performance made me cry. The best performance of the night. Simply stunning!!! Very unique tone of her voice!!

X Factor US Judges House: Stacey Francis - Purple Rain



Amazing!! Although she is massively pimped,she still gets me with her performance.

X Factor US: My Favorites From the Top 32

Melanie Amaro
Elaine Gibbs
The Brewer Boys
Drew Ryniewicz
Caitlin Koch
Josh Krajcik
Jazzyln Little
Ausem + Nick Dean
Brennin Hunt

X Factor US: Which Judges Got Which Group??



LOL at Nicole. She will pick awful song choice for the over 30's. Paula got tough group. Simon got the group that he wanted. Something is fishy. Maybe he rigged the decision.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Top 32 - Additional Groups



Yay for Nick Dean and Ausem!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Top 32 - Over 30's



Yay for Elaine Gibbs. Dexter Haygood will irritate me so much if he makes it to live show.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Top 32 - Boys



Brennin Hunt is the most tolerable for me from this bunch. Brian will annoy me. Skyelor got no chance in hell. Chris Rene is not my cup of tea.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Top 32 - Girls



Why they didn't show Melanie Amaro as much as the others?? She's my number 1 favorite.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Caitlin Koch - Cry Me A River



Very good!! I love her soft tone.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Drew Ryniewicz



Fantastic performance!! She's climbing up my list of favorite contestants.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Stacey Francis - Summertime



She's the most pimped contestant in this show!! Thanks God,at least she could deliver this performance well.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Phillip Lomax - Summertime



Still can't get over his singing style. His mouth's movement is weird.

X Factor US Boot Camp: The Stereo Hogzz - Cry Me A River



Still billion times better than 4shore.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Brennin Hunt - If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys



Urgh this song been overdone billion times. I HATE HATE HATE this song!! So sick by it!! Brennin did a fresh version of this song. But if I were Simon,I would be bored by so many different arrangement over so many songs from so many contestants.

ps: it looks like they heavily edited Brennin's footage,he said on Twitter that it wasn't like that when he sang.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Simone Battle - Your Song by Elton John



At first I was curious wanting to know in which direction she gonna take the song. Then she sang it into some twilight dimension. The lyrics sounded like made up at whim. Trainwreck!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Josh Krajcik - Up To The Mountain by Patty Griffin



It's not a Kelly Clarkson song!! He's probably the strongest contender on the male side.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Tiger Budbill - Billie Jean



He improved so much since his audition performance. Great job,Tiger!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Rachel Crow - If I Were A Boy



She got the confidence!! Still too obnoxious for my taste.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group (The Brewer Boys,Emma Henry,etc) Perform Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol



The Brewer Boys still impressive. Emma Henry looked way stoned. Urgh at the rest.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group (Kingston,Tim Cifers,etc) Perform I Won't Let Go by Rascal Flatts



Pretty good performance from each of them. This song made me choke up.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group (Brennin Hunt,Chris Rene,Marcus Canty,etc) Perform What's Going On by Marvin Gaye



I'm so sick of this song. Please banned it!! The end of the performance was so all over the place. It's worse than group performance on result show on Idol.

Friday, October 07, 2011

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 8 Perform Run by Snow Patrol



Did Leona Lewis also sing this song?? I'm amazed that they still put Siameze through this round. LOL at the name Song Preservation Society. Makenna & Brock still look cute. Emily Michalak should grow up and wait until she passed through high school.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 7 Perform I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston



Why the hell they picked this song for this group?? Are they intentionally threw everyone beside Rachel under the bus? Rachel is okay. Dunno why the judges obsessed over her.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 6 Perform Feeling Good



Phillip Lomax is okay,he's an okay jazz singer based on my observation since the audition. Dunno what they see in Nick Vozz,he's too creepy for me. His voice is like a dead zombie's voice. Although I must say he got charisma. Tiah Tolliver slayed it!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 4 Perform Wishing On A Star by Jay Z and Group 5 Perform Superman by Five For Fighting



Brian Bradley is so arrogant. I'm glad Reina Williams outrapped him. Yay!! So she's the one who said hi to me on Twitter. Pretty cool female rapper!!

I feel sorry for Nick Dean. Josh Krajcik knocked the song out of the park. I'm blown away!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 3 Perform Desperado by The Eagles



Paige Ogle's accent is weird for me. Leroy Bell sang with soul!! Skyelor Anderson blew it,I think he forgot his lyrics. Cari Fletcher and Dani Knight are forgettable!!

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 2 Perform I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2



Is Group 2 the black divas group?? It seems they put almost the same kind of singer in one group. Jazzlyn Little still impressive although she forgot her lyrics. I love love Melanie Amaro. She's probably my number 1 fave right now. Just flawless. Stacey Francis sang way over the top on day 1,someone needs to teach her not to oversing every notes.

X Factor US Boot Camp: Group 1 Perform Creep by Radiohead



Drew is okay,she needs to watch her movement on stage. Caitlin Koch is great. Elaine Gibbs made me speak in tongue. Dexter Haygood just blew his chance,he's just awful copycat.

Day 1's performances before this group round are way too rushed,I don't know why they did that. Or maybe there aren't any good performance in it.

Movie Review: Green Lantern


I know it's very late but Green Lantern,the 2011 film just came out yesterday in my city. My country basically got a jam-packed of every blockbuster movies that have been pending for months because of the disagreement about some tax. Basically from the 4 superheroes movies this summer, I only watched Green Lantern because I assumed it would be so fantastic to see an image of every planets,galaxies and outer space in the movie theater.

There's a small boy beside me with his mom. He asked question a lot,he wanted his mom to explain every scenes to him. At first it's so cute but after a while,it's a bit annoying hearing them talking. I'd say this movie has some boring parts which is mainly when there's a conversation scenes. Ryan Reynolds's acting is pretty bad in this movie. Dunno why I felt that way. Blake Lively is okay. That kid beside me practically got sleepy in the first 10 minutes because there wasn't any action yet until the later part of the film.

It's so cool seeing planet Oa,and the special effects that went into the bright green costume. I was mesmerized everytime they go into outer space. Everything is just so beautiful. Peter Sarsgaard did a great job acting as Hector. He's so creepy he made me cringe many times. Although the contrast between Hector and Hal's luck in life might be relatable to some people. The government as always irked me with the military industrial complex,the cover up of alien finding,etc. I love every scenes Parallax was in. Very cool enemy!!! Overall,this movie definitely counts on its special effect galore,with the talking scenes bordering on boring. Might turn off casual viewers or kids audience because of its complicated storyline (for me,it's not). I checked wiki just now and there won't be any sequel. Damn it!! I was hoping to see Sinestro in yellow costume. I didn't stay until the end part of the credit title to see that last scene.

X Factor US Audition: Jazzlyn Little



Why she's so nervous?? Holy shit!!! What a transformation!! It's like she's channeling someone else's personality. One of the best performance from audition round. So effortless.

X Factor US Audition: Nick Dean



Blonde Bieber!! He seemed to perform a pop rock song. He has potential!!

ps: I also love Brewer Boys before him. The younger one got great voice.

X Factor US Audition: Brennin Hunt



Oh God,he's so annoying and arrogant!! I hate him already!! But OMG he has great voice and I really love his original song. Great performance!! I dunno though if I can ignore his annoying personality when the live show begins.

ps: Melinda Doolittle and Kendra Chantelle endorsed him on the Twitter. I guess he's very popular on Nashville circle.

X Factor US Audition: The Stereo Hogzz



They did better harmony than 4shored. Although these african american boyband have so many similarity between one another. They all look the same!!!!

X Factor US Audition: Jor El Gracia



I'm so tired of the same old gay stereotype person. Tonight's episode exhausted me. So many unfunny rejects.

X Factor US Audition: Tora Woloshin



Strong stage presence and good voice. But I don't feel anything from her. Not my cup of tea.

X Factor US Newark Audition: Ausem



Interesting performance of Jar of Hearts. Austin has big potential,while Emily is rather plain. I think they can be improved.

ps:before their clip,there was montage of some good contestants. There was one person I noticed from Idol. It's Joshua Blaylock. I hope they show him more next week.

X Factor US Newark Audition: Cari Fletcher



Forgettable!!

X Factor US Newark Audition: Andy Silikovitz



Oh gosh,I don't know if I'm allowed to feel bad for him or not. I laughed a bit in the beginning. His mom seems to be a really kind and heartwarming person.

X Factor US Newark Audition: Liliana Rose Andreano



A singer songwriter type like Regina Spektor. Idol Season 9 was full of them.

X Factor US Newark Audition: Brian Bradley



Urgh so annoying!! I hate him!! He got talent though. A possible rap contender maybe for this show??

Friday, September 30, 2011

X Factor US Seattle Audition: Tiah Tolliver



Suspense!! Why there is no track?? LOL at the judges fighting over her. She's okay but I agree that she has fierce eyes.

ps: what is it with the blatant promotion of Top 40 songs on this show??

X Factor US Seattle Audition: Phillip Lomax



I can hear already the sound of cougars and frauens orgasm everywhere. He's really good looking and his charming smile surely can melt the heart of women everywhere. They will power vote for him. Although,his singing sometimes off pitch. He's a good jazz singer but at some parts,his way of singing bothered me.

X Factor US Seattle Audition: Elaine Gibbs



I need black diva to represent on this show!! Love it!!
