This is … The Voice!!!

This new NBC talent show premiered last April 26, 2011. Seeing the previews on facebook and youtube, I felt the excitement on watching it.  The whole concept of the show, the amazing set of coaches, plus the downfall of American idol, I thought that The Voice will be my new favorite Singing show.

The show's coaches includes (from Right to Left, maiba lang): Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and Cee Lo Green)

Hosted by Carson Daly, the show started with a couple of selected ‘artists’ going through their “Blind Audition”, wherein they will sing while the coaches’ chairs are turned back at them, and they must do their to make them turn around and beg for them to join their team.  Even though there were only few great talents during the blind audition episodes, it was still fun!! I really enjoyed the exchanges of words between the judges, esp adam and christina.

Then next is the “Battle Round”, where each coach match up their 8 artists, until they’re down to their 4 artists for the Quarter-finals.  The coaches were able to picked the best among the best, I must say. I enjoyed the quarter finals were my favorite artists did  great performances.  Really love Javier Colon’s Fix You, Vicci Martinez’ Dog Days are Over, and of course, Dia Frampton’s Losing My Religion!!!

Now, they already named the semi-finalists.  I know it was so quick, but it doesn’t matter to me.  I enjoyed it, and I’ll be craving for more.  I’m excited to see the battle between javier, Dia, Vicci, and Beverly.

I’m rooting for Dia Frampton, I really, really hope that she will win this competition.  Here are some of her performances on the show:

Happy Father’s Day 2011!

It’s father’s day today! 🙂 .. so, I went to my dad, tap his shoulder, and greeted him a happy father’s day. He nod and gave a faint sound as a response. That’s my dad.

We really don’t have an awesome relationship with my Papa. But he’s not bad naman.   We still talk from time to time, but not as often as with my mom.  Yeah, drinking is one of the things that he do that I really hate, just because I’m really concern with his health.  But at least now, I think, he’s trying his best to moderate this vice, and I’m happy with that.

So to my Papa, Happy father’s day. I’m proud that I’m carrying your name.

Somewhere Only We Know (Natasha Bedingfield’s version)

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go? So why don’t we go?

Oh, this could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

Everybody’s Changing

You say you wander your own land
But when I think about it
I don’t see how you can 
You’re aching, you’re breaking
And I can see the pain in your eyes
Says everybody’s changing
And I don’t know why 

So little time
Try to understand that I’m
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody’s changing
And I don’t feel the same 

You’re gone from here
And soon you will disappear
Fading into beautiful light
Cause everybody’s changing
And I don’t feel right 

So little time
Try to understand that I’m
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody’s changing
And I don’t feel the same 

So little time
Try to understand that I’m
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody’s changing
And I don’t feel the same

X-men First Class

Yesterday, I went out to watch Kung Fu Panda 2 and X-men First Class. No money, just relying on my CC.  Then I reached Ortigas and tried using my CC, and whaddayouknow, HSBC is effin offline!!!

So I was not able to watch KF2, I had to ask my friends to lend me some money for my food and for X-Men 1st Class, and even my pamasahe pauwi. GAWD, I’m such a pulubi that time! T_T

So there, we watched X-Men First Class (at SM Megamall), got good seats inside the cinema, saw the trailer of Harry Potter!!!!!, naweirdohan sa movie ni Selena Gomez, and X-Men? It was SUPERB!!!! Love the storyline, love the characters, love the fact that it explained everything about X-men. I really, really enjoyed it!! 🙂

Maroon 5!

Last May 16, Maroon 5 performed once again in the stage of manila, and this time, I was there to experience it!

After spending so much on The Script’s concert a couple of months ago, I was really hesitant to watch Maroon 5.  The ticket price are too expensive, and I was really on a tight budget that time. BUT it might be the last chance, it is a once in a lifetime chance, to hear them live, I don’t want to regret it. So, I really didn’t know what to do.

Then one afternoon, my friend, Edzcel, texted (or tweeted) me that there’s a 50% discount promo for M5 tickets, and  a silver tix will only cost 1600+!! So we/he bought our tickets right away, and there, I’m watching the guys!

On the day of the concert, the weather was really bad.  We thought that it’s a good thing that the venue is in SMX Convention Center, at least the threat of the rain will not ruin the event. HOWEVER, we found out that SMX is not a good venue either.  There were huge concrete posts in the MIDDLE of the convention area, and the stage is too low that we were not able to see the band at all!!  Thank God there were huge screens all over the place.. but still.

Anyway, despite the fact that we didn’t see Adam Levine and the rest of the guys, we still enjoyed that night! We were singing and dancing along the hit songs of the band, they even did a cover of an Alicia Keys  song, and man, Adam Levine’s voice is just effin CRAZY!! UNBELIEVABLE.  He’s just so energetic, and the voice is really awesooooome.

After that, we spent the rest of our night in a coffee shop, wherein my two friend drooled over this barista of SBC.

It was really a fun night, and I’m so happy that I experience the Maroon 5 Live! Now, all I have to mind is how I will pay for my debts. Haha!

Here are some of the vids (from youtube)
