Broken

This was my song when a big change happened in my career… I was not prepared at that time…  I never thought though that I’ll be listening to this song again.

“Broken”

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though i still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain, there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
with a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain (in the pain), is there healing
In your name (in your name) I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’)
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
with a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain(In the pain) there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

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:

End of Season

Almost all of the TV shows that I’ve been following has finally ended their current season this year. I’m happy that I’ve finished them all, but now I suddenly missed downloading the episodes and watching them every weekend.

THE AMAZING RACE

The 18th season of TAR, Unfinished Business, ended its race wherein Sisters Kesha and Jen emerged as the winner of 1 million dollar prize.  I’m ok with the result… but I’ll be happier if Dad-Daughter Gary&Mallory won the race.  The finale was not that exciting since it was very obvious that K&J were really ahead of the other 2 teams.  Anyway, it was a good race. A memorable one.

SURVIVOR

Rob Mariano is the Sole Survivor of Survivor 22.  I think he really played it well this time, plus the other contestants were pretty lazy and dumb. It will be also great if Matt won the final Redemption Battle, and stayed all the way to the finals.  For sure, he will win that title.  This season is definitely memorable because of Phillip. What a character!!!

GLEE

Yeah, the second season of this hit musical show is also over.  This season has also its ups and downs.  I havent seen the finale but I heard our very own Charice has an appearance and solo performance again! My favorite new character for this season though is Miss Holly Holiday!!! Gwyneth is definitely good, I love her character, and I love her versions of Fuck You and Turning Tables.

HELLCATS

I already downloaded the last two episodes of this show.. not just for this season, but definitely the last 2 episodes!!!! Waaaah. My friend told me that the show was cancelled and it won’t have its next season… that sucks 😦

AMERICAN IDOL

From a great bunch of fresh talents to a very boring season finale. Scotty won. KTHNXBAI.

American Idol 10: Top 13 & Top 12

TOP 13 PERFORMANCES

Lauren Alaina – “Any Man Of Mine” by Shania Twain – I actually love watching her… but I think she’s still not that good in choosing the right song. But she’s on my top 3 girls.

Casey Abrams – “With A Little Help From My Friends” by Joe Cocker – I’m still a little in between liking and getting annoyed with this guy. But don’t get me wrong. He’s good. So good. and so unqiue.

Ashthon Jones – “When You Tell Me That You Love Me” by Diana Ross – The problem with her is that she’s so common, boring, not exciting at all.  She deserve to leave the competition.

Paul McDonald – “Come Pick Me Up” by Ryan Adams – another unique voice here.. but seriously, his moves is so annoying na… not a fan!

Pia Toscano – “All By Myself” by Celine Dion – As early as now, I’m predicting that she’ll win this competition.  She’s sooo freakin good.. her high notes and voice control is just so effin perfect.

James Durbin – “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney – Less annoying than Adam Lambert.. but Adam is much better.

Haley Reinhart – “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes – I like her voice, but her song choices are terrible… she should really be careful next time.

Jacob Lusk – “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly – One of my faves from the guys… He’s so good and a lil bit funny when he sings hehe

Thia Megia – “Smile” by Michael Jackson – The judges are right.. her phrasing is really something… And the intro is way much better than the jazz part.

Stefano Langone – “Lately” by Stevie Wonder – The best performance of the night!!! That’s all I can say

Karen Rodriguez – “I Could Fall In Love” by Selena – Not that much of a fan… i find her boring..

Scotty McCreery – “The River” by Garth Brooks – he can sing.. yun lang.. sorry, so fed up with his country songs.

Naima Adedapo – “Umbrella” by Rihanna -what a way to end the show.. love her performance.. though it’s really pitchy

TOP 12 PERFORMANCES

Naima Adedapo – “What’s Love Got To Do With It” by Tina Turner – not a fan of this perf.. really pitchy, and she’s a lil bit all over the place. BTW, bravo to J.LO for her comment.

Paul McDonald – “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” by Elton John – I’m beginning to notice that his performances are all the same. blah.

Thia Megia – “Colors Of The Wind” by Vanessa Williams – it was not bad.. I really think she’ll go far in this competition, as far as Jasmine Trias.. me thinks.

James Durbin – “I’ll Be There For You” by Bon Jovi – I like this performance.. the high pitch scream is well controlled, not over done. great.

Haley Reinhart – “I’m Your Baby Tonight” by Whitney Houston – seriously.. another bad song choice… every week talaga?.. She should really pick something ballad.. that will focus or emphasize her unique voice.

Stefano Langone – “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” by Simply Red – another HOT performance from him!!! I’m a fan! But yeah, he should open his eyes more.

Pia Toscano – “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” by Whitney Houston – REMIX! love it 🙂
Scotty McCreery – “Can I Trust You With My Heart” by Travis Tritt – ok.. country again..

Karen Rodriguez – “Love Will Lead You Back” by Taylor Dayne – Kyla’s version is much better. Haha!

Casey Abrams – “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana – One of my faves this week!! Though the ending was bad.

Lauren Alaina – “I’m The Only One” by Melissa Etheridge – So-so performance.. I’m still waiting for her moment.. not this time baby, not this time.

Jacob Lusk – “Alone” by Heart – not a bad version… but definitely not as good as Carrie’s 😛

Crying Russell

After losing the redemption duel against Matt, the notorious survivor player, Russell Hantz, cried under his hat.

In fairness, naawa ako kay Russell.  It is the very first time na matanggal sya sa laro.  And I must admit, Survivor will never be exciting without Russell.

American Idol 10 Top 24

The top 24 of American Idol 10 was finally revealed last week.  The elimination is full of drama, especially Jennifer’s breaking down moment after delivering the bad news to Chris Medina (who is just ok to be not included in top24, that’s what i think).

Am I happy with the result? Hmmm.. yeah.. except the fact that James-Adam Lambert-ish  was included in the group, and some of the good ones were eliminated.

Last season is definitely an upset for me, but this year, despite the fact that there’s no Simon Cowell on the show, I believe that this will be an interesting season.

For now, I’m rooting for Tim Halperin, Thia Megia, Julie Zorilla, and Robbie Rosen.

Let’s see how far they’ll go!




Anong petsa na!?
