Top New Artists of 2009

New Artists:
10. Pixie Lott - I found Pixie through the fact that she opened for The Saturdays on their first headlining tour. I figured that if she was gonna open for them she must be good and a similar music style, and she is. She is absolutely beautiful and has an awesome voice! Her songs aren't all the same either which I love! I also love watching her music videos because she looks like she is having so much fun in all of them!

9. Erik Hassle - Erik is very easily my favorite male artist ever, his voice is so different and strong. Hurtful is also one of my favorite songs of all time. Like Ellie Goulding, I find his music to be very enticing and then with the extra bonus of his voice its just unbearable how much I like this guy!

8. Ellie Goulding - I just found this girl like 2 weeks ago, her voice is just mesmerizing! I love her sound, its very similar to Erik Hassle, who is also one of my fav artists! I was hooked on her after 15 seconds of her debut single 'Under The Sheets', her music is just to enticing, I LOVE IT!!

7. Cheryl Cole - I was never a fan of Girls Aloud, something about them I couldn't get into, but then I heard Cheryl was gonna go solo and release an album, so I figured I'd give her a chance. I'm so glad I did, cause her music is different than GA, which is great for me since I never liked them! She is absolutely gorgeous and can dance so much better than I ever woulda guessed, I'm very glad I gave her a shot!

6. Adam Lambert - Adam coulda taken to different paths with his music after idol and thankfully he took the one I wanted, which just makes my day, haha. I hope that with his next album he can get a little more into the process and take more control of his music. I love that he is being himself!

5. Allison Iraheta - She was my fav on idol and I think her debut albums gives her a great introduction to the music world, shame she isn't promoted and her album will end up doing nothing. I rly rly hope she doesn't get dropped!

4. Alexandra Burke - I was a bit worried about what Alexandra would do with her music after X Factor, but thankfully she took the best turn and distanced herself from Leona and made her style current and she actually dances! I love her voice and Bad Boys was one of my fav songs of the year!

3. Parachute - This band is not something I would normally listen to but something about their music and lead singers vocals drew me in and I actually went to the store and physically bought the cd and bought it online, which is very rare for me to do both for an artist.

2. Kristinia Debarge - She is also just the type of music I listen to the most, fun poppy dance stuff with strong vocals to back it up! She's so cute also and can dance, she's just got so many things going for her except for a good label that promotes her.

1. Ke$ha - She brings something new to the music scene, her music is EXACTLY the type of music I've been wanting for a while now ever since GaGa came into the public view! She's just fun, and completely ok with that, which is why I love her!

Top Singles of 2009

Top Albums of 2009

I'm Back!!! Sorry for the insane amount of lack of updates over the past 6 months, I went to college and life got crazy! On the positive side I did really well on my first semester :)

I'm definitely gonna start trying to blog more, especially since American Idol is coming back in January!!

But for now here is my top albums of 2009! enjoy :)

15. Cheryl Cole - 3 Words
Solid solo debut with AMAZING tracks! My fav tracks are "Fight For This Love" and "Parachute".
14. JLS - JLS
Never really a fan of theirs until I downloaded the album, another excellant debut album! My fav track is "Everybody In Love".
13. Rihanna - Rated R
Such a great comeback album, so edgy and differant from her other albums! This album def proves that RiRi is here to stay, woulda placed higher but other cds appealed to me more, but this album is truly amazing and if I had it for longer it would most likely have placed higher. My fav tracks are "Russian Roulette" and "Photographs".
12. Various Artists - Glee Soundtrack (both Volume 1 and 2)
Glee has become my biggest obsession and I always find myself singing along to all the songs from the show, they take older songs and turn them into fun, current songs that just make you feel good. Plus Lea Michele's vocals are OUTTA THIS WORLD! My fav tracks from the season are "Somebody To Love", "Imagine (with the Deaf Choir)", and "Don't Rain On My Parade".
11. Alexandra Burke - Overcome
Alexandra is truly an amazing artist!! She has quickly become one of my fav artists of 2009 and most def deserved to win X Factor! I love that she distanced herself from Leona, even though she's also got an insanely strong voice. My fav tracks are "Bad Boys" and "Bury Me (6 Feet Under)".

10. Pixie Lott - Turn It Up
Pixie is a fun name, but then her music is also really fun! I found out about her through the fact that she opened for The Saturdays on their tour, so I came here and found her demos! She music is cute and fun, with strong funky vocals on top of that! My fav tracks are "Cry Me Out" and "Turn It Up" (but I personally like the slower version that was a demo called The Fall).
9. Jessie James - Jessie James
Jessie James was someone that I did not particularly want to like, she just seemed so plain, like a pretty girl with a good voice. But then I gave her a chance and ended up loving her and her album! Her vocals really are very good and very different. She is a combo of Carrie, Christina, and Kelly; not on the level of those three girls, but a similar sounding voice and style to the three. I love her! My fav tracks are "I Look So Good (Without You)" and "Burning Bridges".
8. Allison Iraheta - Just Like You
Allison was my favorite of the top 3 on Idol this past season and I wanted her to win, but sadly she did not. Her debut album definitely proves she should have won, its amazing! Her voice is such a different stroke to the voices out there today and reminds pretty much everyone of P!nk. The music is fun and spunky and is a lot different than what I expected from her after Idol was over. My fav tracks are "Robot Love", "Scars", and "Beat Me Up".
7. Demi Lovato - Here We Go Again
Demi Lovato is so underrated! Her voice is outta this world and her musician ship is beautiful! She can belt out the big, heavier songs and then flawlessly deliver the tender, deeper songs. I was a big fan of her first album and when her 2nd album came out I was not dissapointed at all; she grew so much as an artist and vocalist! My fav tracks are "Catch Me", "Here We Go Again", and "Falling Over Me".
6. Kristinia Debarge - Exposed
Kristinia came onto the scene with "Goodbye" which I immediately became addicted to! Then I found as many songs by her as I could and became hooked. Her vocals were insane and she had fun music that was perfect for driving around on a sunny day. Then I found out she was on American Juniors tv show and I freaked and became obsessed! This album is just fun, its nothing serious and the songs themselves are award worthy, but her voice is great, she's adorable, and the music is SO fun! My fav tracks are "Goodbye", "Sabotage", "Doesn't Everybody Wanna Fall In Love".

5. Lady GaGa - The Fame Monster
Lady GaGa is epic, rather simple. This album is eons better than The Fame, and shows so much growth as an artist. This year was her year and this new album proves why, she isn't just a fun, crazy performer, but she is a legit artist who is in the music business fr the music! My fav tracks are "Telephone (ft. Beyonce)" and "Speechless".

4. Kelly Clarkson - All I Ever Wanted
Ever since the first season of American Idol Kelly has held a very special spot in my heart, I feel like I'm partly responsible for her music since I voted for her and like I've watched my little American Idol grow and mature in the amazing artist she is today. This album is everything from Breakaway + the stuff from My December that I loved, making this the ultimate Kelly album! Her voice is one of the best and her personality is so silly! I literally listened to the 30 second clip of MLWSWY, the night it leaked, 232 times. My fav tracks are "Already Gone", "Long Shot", and "My Life Would Suck Without You".

3. Parachute - Losing Sleep
Parachute is kinda one of those bands that ppl know about, but really don't (at least in my world and group of friends). I first heard "She Is Love" in a lotion commercial and immediately searched the band. Their music is so relaxing and Will's voice is so good! Plus he looks like a combo of Teddy Geiger and Stephen from Laguna Beach. I'm very excited to watch this band keep going into the future! My fav tracks are "Ghost", "She Is Love", and "The Mess I Made".

2. Ashley Tisdale - Guilty Pleasure
Ashley was always my fav East High graduate and her debut album was so fun. Then she released her 2nd album and it showed so much growth as an artist, I was so surprised at how good it was! There is not a single track I skip over, its such a shame she didn't sell well in the US, she is such an underrated artist! I hope more people will notice her and give her credit for being more than a Disney has been. My fav tracks are "How Do You Love Someone", "Hair", and "Crank It Up".

1. The Saturdays - Wordshaker
The Saturdays are my absolute favorite artist, and it makes it hard to be a fan of theirs when I live in the US! I got into this band because I was a fan of S Club 8 and then found out that Frankie (my fav S Clubber and Saturday) and Rochelle were both going to be in a new band; I freaked and tried to find any music by this new band. Then I got my hands on a clip of "If This Is Love" and thats when my obsession began. I love these girls because they are fun, their personalities and their music. This album showed a progression into what they wanted their music to actually be like from the first album. The vocals had definitely improved, the look was more mature and sexier, and the music was just better. The album has the great danceable tracks and the ones that are slower and deliver amazing vocals. My fav tracks are "Ego", "Lose Control", "Open Up", "Wordshaker", and "2AM".

Parachute "Losing Sleep" Album

Parachute is a brand new band from Charlottesville, Virginia. They have been around a couple years doing their own indie stuff, but just recently got signed to Mercury Records. They just released their debut album "Losing Sleep" on tuesday and digitally last tuesday (May 12th). The digital release was kept a secret until that day and amazingly it was #1 on itunes almost that entire week. They only lost the top spot when Green Day released their album that friday (duh). Their first single "She Is Love" (official video here) was featured in a Nivea commerical, also their second single "Under Control" is also featured in a Nivea commercial.
They have been continuously touring and promoting their album around the country. They have been on tour with O.A.R. most recently in direct promotion for the album.
They have formally been known as Sparky's Flaw until in 2008 when they changed their name to Parachute, VA. Then in late 2008 due to legal issues they dropped the ", VA" and just became known as Parachute.
This band is really a gem, they bring so many things to the table. They music is very current and chill, they are very similar to Maroon 5 and Switchfoot. Their debut album "Losing Sleep" is a solid effort by the band. It features some gems in addition to good support album tracks. This really is one of my favorite albums of this year, there is not a single song that I skip over. I pre-ordered mine and got a signed booklet, its pretty sweet. But booklet isn't anything to extravagent, and you get an exclusive iTunes edition if you buy the album there.

1. All That I Am - 8/10
2. Back Again - 8/10
3. She (For Liz) - 8/10
4. The Mess I Made - 8/10
5. She Is Love - 10/10

American Idol Finale Review!!!!!!!!

This is it!! It’s finally here!! What we have all been waiting for, can you feel the tension? Through this screen? Are to twitching with anticipation? Yeah there isn’t much to say here tonight because it’s the end, we know what each guy can and can’t do, now we just get to sit back and enjoy the show :D

Adam Lambert – “Mad World” (Favorite Performance): This performance I think is lacking a little from the first time he did it. When he was sitting in the first performance it added something that this seems to be lacking, but vocally this performance demolishes the last one. He is playing the part very well this time, so that’s why I think he is standing and walking around, except he looks like a wannabe Matrix guy. This is the most boring performance of the night, not Adam’s but this “theme”; we already saw these performances I want more new stuff! Oh well, great performance…again, lets move on and get Kris’s favorite performance out of the way so we can get new stuff!!

Kris Allen – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Favorite Performance): This was a great performance last time from Kris, but I honestly liked “Falling Slowly” better, either way anything he sings is amazing!! I like him behind the piano, it’s another thing Adam doesn’t have. He is so much more current than Adam, I really think Kris can nab this away from Adam, even though about all of Hollywood wants Adam to win, he has so many celebrities and people of that nature behind him. He performed it so well even though it was entirely behind the piano, you could see the emotion oozing from his piano playing hands, haha. Kris has such an amazing current appeal, he is gonna do it!! KRIS ALLEN FOR AMERICAN IDOL 8!!!

Round 1: Simon says Kris wins!!!!!

Adam Lambert – “Change Is Gonna Come” (Simon Fuller Choice): This is a very very interesting choice, not what you would normally imagine Adam singing. Honestly I’ve been imagining Kris singing this all season and then Adam sings it…awkward. Amazing vocally and all, but I’m starting to get on that sick of his screeching train, this song was completely ruined by him singing it like him! I’m actually kind of angry, I LOVE this song, but the legit version and even the cover that Gavin Degraw did. This song is supposed to be really chill, really mellow and he completely did the opposite and glammed it up, I have a feeling that Kris has a chance to win this round too.

Kris Allen – “What’s Going On” (Simon Fuller Choice): I don’t recognize this song initially from the name, but when Kris started with the guitar I knew it would fit him. I love how Kris has many musical talents; he can sing, play guitar, play piano, or just stand there and still get votes, haha. Adam just sings, incredibly, but still it’s all he does. Kris is a musician when Adam is just a singer. I love how his voice is lower, but when he sings higher and belts it still sounds amazing, even better in my opinion! Tonight is amazing; I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen tomorrow night. I’m glad Kara commented on how current he is and how we actually know exactly who he is; Adam keeps changing which artist he plays every week.

Round 2: Simon says Adam wins.

Adam Lambert – “No Boundaries” (Original Single): This is not good; this song is horrible, typical American Idol winner song. This reminds me so much of The Climb with the mountain thing. The one thing you can count on with Adam is that no matter how weird the performance is or weird the song selection is his vocals are always still killer, but that’s not the case for this song at all, he really bad; this was pretty much Top 36 quality performance.

Kris Allen – “No Boundaries” (Original Single): Wow both of these guys looked really awkward singing this, it’s really bad. Epic Fail on you Kara! But Kris def sang it better, he was struggling and stretching to hit all the notes, but he hit them all at least, but tilting his head back made it worse cause it strains your voice, so yeah. I think Kris was at least a Top 5 quality performance, but I enjoyed that, especially compared to Adam. I’m glad they talked about how it was too high, because it really was, he still did it well and hit everything, but it was a bit of a struggle for him. I think Kara wants him to win and possibly Simon.

Round 3: Simon didn’t say, but I definitely think it was Kris

Adam Lambert Numbers:

Kris Allen Numbers:


All in all, tonight was a bit boring, I mean pretty good vocal performances but pretty boring. It’s okay though cause it was the finale and nothing can make me sad tonight, tomorrow I can be sad though if Kris looses, haha.

American Idol: Top 3 Judges Choice/Personal Choice Week Review

It’s almost here!!! The finale; can’t wait! Tonight really doesn’t have much to say here, they get to do whatever they want really, so this shows us what kind of an artist they can be after the show. It should be a completely amazing night!

Danny Gokey – “Dance Little Sister” (Paula Choice): I have never even heard of this song ever, so I don’t know what to expect. I don’t like the style of music, cause Danny will definitely not being singing this type of music after the show. As much as the genre is an odd choice it was a really good performance from Danny, great vocals and all around a fun time. He isn’t my favorite and I don’t want him to get through to next week, but I can’t deny how this was a good performance.

Kris Allen – “Apologize” (Randy and Kara Choice): OMG!!! This song is perfect!! I’m so glad they picked this for him; it’ll fit his voice very well. Also he might get extra votes just cause people recognize the song! I like the piano; I forgot he could play that too. YES!!! Amazing vocals, they did so good choosing this for him, I probably couldn’t be happier; Danny didn’t make me sad when he performed and Kris is killing it!! This is how Matt should have done “You Found Me”, same as the song, but not a sound alike. Kris stayed true to the song, but added his own personality and style. This just shows how current he can be, and that he really fits onto radio today!

Adam Lambert – “One” (Simon Choice): I love this song! I mean its not exactly what I would have immediately thought, but Adam can sing anything amazing! Ooooo a diff arrangement, me likey. This is not my favorite Adam performance, the beginning was honestly a bit shaky, but after he left the mic stand he took control and turned it around. This was the worst of the first three in my opinion, and that makes me sad cause I love Adam and strongly dislike Danny. So far Kris is in the finals, unless his personal choice totally bombs. Also Adam is def in the finals because Entertainment Weekly put him on the cover this week and also has a whole article about him, this has never happened before on AI; he has a huge fan base, that’s not in just America, but the entertainment world. I honestly hope he doesn’t win because if he looses he won’t be controlled by American Idol execs and can have more freedom for his album. Either way, he’s gonna do great!

Danny Gokey – “You Are So Beautiful” (Personal Choice): Great song, don’t screw it up Gokey. Boring, I really hope this secures his leaving position and the two contestants that will actually have huge careers in the music biz will move on (Kris and Adam in case you didn’t catch on). This performance was very boring for the first half, but then he started doing more with his voice and it got better, but not even comparing to any of the first three performances.

Kris Allen – “Heartless” (Personal Choice): YES!!!! This is gonna be so cool!!! Good move on Kris’s part, people will automatically remember his performances because they are well known songs, and half of the people will be like “I voted for that white guy singing ‘Heartless’”. I can’t even say how happy I am right now, but this kinda ruins my plan to sing this song next on my youtube, but oh well, I’m still UBER happy!!!!! This was so amazing; great vocals, Kris style, and its just fun and catchy. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS STUDIO VERSION!!!!! This just secured his spot in the finals!!! Let’s make him win, he can do it!!!! KRIS IS AMERICAN IDOL 8!!!! He is so relevant, I’m so happy right now!!!! VOTE FOR KRIS!!!!

Adam Lambert – “Cryin’” (Personal Choice): I honestly feel kinda bad for Adam to go after that Kris performance, he can handle it, but if he doesn’t change it up it’ll be a little harder. But I LOVE this song too, Danny is so out!!! He can sing this so amazing cause of his range, YAY I’m very very excited!! This redeemed his not amazingly impressive first performance, I really hope that Adam and Kris go to the finals; it’ll be such a diverse finale! I’m freaking out right now, cause my two favorites completely owned tonight!!!!! This is making me a very happy watcher of American Idol!!

Top Performance:
Kris Allen – “Heartless”

Worst Performance:
Danny Gokey – “You Are So Beautiful”

All in all, THE BEST NIGHT YET!!!! I’m very happy right now, if Allison was still here this night would have been completely utterly AMAZING!! But I can go with 2/3 amazing performers! I seriously cannot wait until next week, it’ll be so good!! Ahhhhhhhhhh, I’M FREAKING OUT!!!!

Also don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the results show where Jordin Sparks will be performing her first AMAZING single “Battlefield” off her sophomore album out July 14th!!! Also go buy Jordin’s single off itunes and get it to #1!!!!

My Current Obsessions!!!

Here is a list of songs that I currently cannot stop listening to, these are all new singles for May. I definitely suggest you download all these cause they are great, and most haven't become huge yet so you can say you knew about it before it was big.

Last current obsession success: Kristinia Debarge "Goodbye" I called it, this song is doing amazingly well on the charts, and no video has been released and very little promo has been done. Her video was filmed and she finished it about 3 days ago, so be on the lookout for it soon :D

1. Jordin Sparks "Battlefield" - OMG this song is absolutely amazing!! This is Jordin's lead single off her sophmore album out July 14th. All I can say is that this song is such a different sound from her first album, but in an insanely good way!!! Its a bit more of a rocky sound, more pop/rock not pop/r&b. She will be performing this live on American Idol's results show this wednesday, and I can't wait for this performance! It'll have such a good video, I'm so excited!! Its being rumored to be added to itunes tomorrow, but no confirmation yet, only wikipedia... Either way if its released tomorrow on itunes it'll be a very smart move on her labels part cause after the promo from American Idol people will be dying for this song!!! Btw this song was written and produced by Ryan Tedder (Bleeding Love), so that immediately secures its hit status! Btw at first listen you won't be hooked, but trust me after your 3rd or 4th listen you will become completely hooked, its happens to everyone, don't feel bad. :D

2. Cobra Starship ft. Leighton Meester "Good Girls Go Bad" - This is such a fun track, I can't help but dance to it when it comes on my ipod!! This is the lead single off their 3rd studio album, out late summer/early fall. This is a little different form past Cobra Starship music, still the same, but has less of the punky style. The real icing to this song is that Leighton Meester is featured, and if you know her from somewhere its Gossip Girl. Leighton plays Blair on the hit TV show and has recently released that she has a record deal and is working on her debut album this summer!! I love her voice so much!! She has about 4 tracks floating around the web and they are amazing!! She sings the 2nd verse if you wanted to know, be on the lookout for her solo album :D

3. Katy Perry "Waking Up In Vegas" - The fourth official single from Katy's debut album 'One of the Boys'. This was always one of my favorite songs off the cd, but I never saw it as a single, but I guess she saw different and is deciding to release it. I don't blame her, its a very fun song with tons of humor. The video to this song just enhances its enjoyment so much, I highly suggest you buy it off itunes (only $0.99). I really hope this song does well for Katy and doesn't flop like "Thinking Of You" did. I saw her live and this song is one of the best live, I think she enjoys this song as much as her fans do :D

American Idol 8: Rock Night Review

This theme usually leaves one person in the dust because their voice can’t handle rock stuff, but this year should be different. This is Adam’s and Allison’s genre, and Kris and Danny have good enough vocals to make this night a breeze. Rumor has it that instead of each singing 2 solo songs, they will each sing 1 solo song and then 2 of them will get paired up for a duet, which sounds amazing!! Hopefully this week makes us all happy, only 2 weeks from the finals and the premier of Glee!!! Yay!!!

Adam Lambert – “Whole Lotta Love”: Adam’s element, whether people like him doing this style or the soft ballads, this is what he enjoys the most. Another great performance by Adam, not my favorite by any means, but awesome vocals as usual. I don’t know if he is a legit rocker or if he just likes playing that on stage, cause he is an actor and all, so idk; we will see. I’m not wanting him to win cause he will be so controlled by AI record label that he won’t have as much freedom, so I hope another wins and Adam does his own record with tons of freedom. I really have no idea why Paula ever speaks, haha. I don’t agree with Simon I think Allison has the potential to do better than Adam, I really do. She is my vote to win!

Allison Iraheta – “Cry Baby”: I really don’t know any of these songs so I’m just going on how the contestants sing, so yeah sorry about that. This style def suits Allison’s voice!! I love her, she is def one of the talented youngsters ever on this show. Not her best performance either, and I do agree with Simon that Adam did better. Allison is def a close close second, but Adam did better tonight. I think that Simon LOVES Allison, he def knows she can do better and wants to push her. And I know she can do better also, I really hope she is in the finals with either Kris or Adam. Oh btw Danny is the new Vote For The Worst pick, so maybe that means he can go home, cause pattern would reveal that he will :D

Kris Allen & Danny Gokey – “Renegade”: This is gonna be so cool!!! These harmonies are amazing!!!! I hope this is an indicator of their solo performances cause that would mean Kris is gonna KILL it!! But this is really weird, they seem pretty awkward singing rock, especially Danny; he looks soooooooo awkward. Can’t wait for Allison and Adam, they will be AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Kris Allen – “Come Together”: Good move on Kris’s part, he isn’t a rock guy, so this is a bit mellower to fit his voice more. Good move Kris :D So many people have done this song on this show, but this performance def sticks out as the best. Kris’s vocals fit this song so well, and this version still fits the rock theme but doesn’t make him sound like a wannabe rock star. I really want him and Allison in the finals cause they would be so different and give us a very interesting finale! This is the best of the night in my opinion, it beats Adam for me just cause this is more what I would listen to! I’m a very very happy camper after that performance!! PLEASE SAVE KRIS!!!!

Danny Gokey – “Dream On”: PLEASE GO HOME PLEASE GO HOME!!!! Wow in the behind the scenes on that scream he sounded like a banchey, ahhhhhhhh!!! This is so bad!!! Yay!!! He looks so uncomfortable!! I really hope he goes and then my top 3 will become a reality!! This is his weakest vocal by far, and that pleases me to no end! YAY!!!!! THAT WAS HORRIBLE!!!!! I’M SO HAPPY!!!! And why did none of the judges comment on the HORRIBLE last note except Simon, really, they aren’t deaf, he is there just like any other contestant, yell at him and make him feel like crap, he deserves it after that. My sister just sang the last note (she can’t sing) and sounded better than him…

Allison Iraheta & Adam Lambert – “Slow Ride”: These are the 2 power houses this season, an amazing duet, I’m so glad they got paired together! Plus Allison looks amazing tonight, I love the new hair, but I died when she said that Adam’s hairdresser did it for her, haha! They were having so much fun on that stage and it def showed!!! I am in love with this night; I wanna just rewatch it over and over!

Top Performance:
Kris Allen

Bottom Performance:
Danny Gokey

All in all, this has been one pleasant night for me! My favs did amazing and Danny did horrible! I’m so happy right now, and these studio versions will be out of this world!! I really hope that the duets will also be on itunes, cause I need the studio versions of them!! Only 2 more weeks, PLUS we get the Glee premier!!

American Idol Week 7: Jazz Rat Pack Night

This is one of my favorite themes of them all, because it’s usually one that everyone can do well on. I remember the first season there was big band night and Kelly Clarkson really emerged as a front runner, so hopefully our real front runners will emerge from tonight. Everyone looks really good, also Ryan wrote on his Twitter to that they brought the band down onto the stage to set the mood, haha, should be cool. 3 weeks from finale!!! Yay!!! Jamie Foxx….hmmmmmm, idk, but Quentin was really good, so maybe; just not really seeing the connection to Rat Pack with Jamie Foxx.

Kris Allen – “The Way You Look Tonight”: He can do this pretty well, and I LOVE this song!!! I really like how they are all dressed up, it’s a nice change. A pretty solid Kris performance, a couple pitchy spots and weak notes, but all in all very impressive and a VERY good last note. It added something different to the song I think; I think the song fit his voice well also. Def one of his best performances this single, this could help catapult him into the finals :D

Allison Iraheta – “Someone To Watch Over Me”: Allison really looks beautiful tonight, very lovely. I really hope that she can do this song well; her voice may be too gritty to really portray this song well. WOW!!! I was very pleasantly surprised by that, she toned it back just enough to stay with the song but still show her power and have her Allison edge. Another amazing performance!! Vocally I think this has been the best night so far, I honestly 100% thought that both Kris and Allison were lip-syncing, but they obviously weren’t. I really hope she makes it to the finals; I don’t care with who though. I’d be cool with her and Kris or Adam, either one would give us a great finale.

Matt Giraud – “My Funny Valentine”: Matt can do very well tonight, this genre fits his voice very well, but I am very worried. He has been voted out before and America just doesn’t seem to be biting onto his talent, I’d be ok if she went home, but I would prefer Danny. (Rumor has it Jamie didn’t like Danny, and thought he needed work…maybe that’s a good sign…). Jamie is wrong, Matt can’t get number one; he just doesn’t have the fan base to. This is a very weird performance, idk how I feel. It wasn’t like wow, but it wasn’t bad. I wish we could have heard the first way he did it to compare, because I really don’t know about that arrangement. He is not going to win, and unless Danny does really bad he is going home.

Danny Gokey – “Come Rain Or Come Shine”: HAHA at first I thought that Danny was playing the trombone, HAHA!! He looks really uncomfortable; I think the pressure is starting to get to him (yay). Once he got half way through he def hit his stride and got his confidence back, dang it. But def not his best, and I think Matt is going home, it can’t be Allison, no one even think that, we can’t jinx anything!! I’m really not seeing this Danny fever thing, I just don’t get it; yeah he is good but he really isn’t as good as they are making him out to be.

Adam Lambert – “Feelin’ Good”: So he is apparently doing a different version, that makes me sad because I LOVE the original version. Whenever I hear this song I hear Michael Bublé singing it. Adam needs to not be crazy in this, sing it pretty but with his crazy attitude, not crazy vocals. This version reminds me of The Pussycat Dolls version; it’s very jazzy like theirs. OMG!!!! THAT LAST NOTE WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! In my opinion not the best of the night, or his best, but def one of his best and 2nd best of the night. I’m a very happy camper right now, like I said this week is usually a good one and we have such a talented top 5 this year!

Top Performance:
1. Allison Iraheta

Bottom Performance:
1. Matt Giraud

All in all, this night was my favorite I think of the entire season!! I love this type of music, and when my favorite show and one of my favorite music types are combined its like magic. Probably a lot of people don’t agree that Alison was the best, but something about her voice and possibly because she is the last girl makes me love her so much! I really hope Matt goes home over Allison, because I think it’ll be between those 2 this week :(

Don’t forget to buy your favorite contestants itunes versions on itunes tomorrow after the results show!! Also this week you get an autographed picture of one of the contestants, idk how that actually works, but it sounds really cool!!

Also anyone wanna have a big finale party? And then we all can watch the season premier of Glee!!! I’m soooooooooooooooooo insanely excited for that show!!! The trailers are on my ipod and I watch them every night!!!

My Current Obsessions!!!

Here is a list of songs that I currently cannot stop listening to, a lot of them are new singles, but some are just normal tracks from albums. I definitely suggest you all download these cause they are great, and most haven't become huge yet so you can say you knew about it before it was big.

1. Kristinia DeBarge "Goodbye" - This track is so insanely hot! Its definitely gonna be a huge summer hit, its been getting a lot of good radio play and being picked up by some big stations. I see this girl becoming really huge, and this song has the potential to have the same success as "Umbrella" for Rihanna; which would end up shooting this girl into Rihanna like success. Can't wait for the official music video!!

2. Jada "American Cowboy" - Jada is a brand new girlgroup about to hit the scene. This is there debut single, and its insanely infectious, I really can't stop listening. It sounds very similar to Pokerface by Lady GaGa, cause its produced by RedOne also. Another one that is def worth a look, I don't know if this will become as successful, but it has potential to. Especially since DK is completely over and PCD is looking like they might break up after their tour, we need a new girl group in the US; could Jada be that girl group?

3. Pixie Lott "Mama Do" - This girl is so amazing, she is my new UK obsession. She is even opening up for The Saturdays on their tour and they are my first UK obsession!!! I'm really excited about this girl's career, I can see it being very big. Her voice is similar to the Duffy/ADELE style, but her music itself is alot poppier and more electronic. So like if Britney Spears and Duffy had a kid you would get Pixie Lott. Her name even sounds famous, haha.

American Idol Top 7 (Week 2): Disco Night Review

I hate this night!! Sooooooo much! No1 cares about disco anymore, so what's the point, none of these ppl will become disco artists. I'm glad Matt is still here, I hope he can stay!

Lil Rounds – "I'm Every Woman": k first off they look like this show was thrown together at the complete last minute. No intro at all 4 Lil, but watev she didn't deserve any. Her worst performance by far!! Horrible vocals, and horrible song. She doesn't have a very good voice, sure she can sing stuff but her voice has no personality at all!! She is 1 of the 2 going home, so if Anoop sucks than Matt will be safe!!! Yay!! Cause its def those 3 in the bottom, they just always are.

Kris Allen – “She Works Hard for the Money”: This is exactly what I hope everyone does 2nite; completely change up the song so it doesn’t sound disco anymore and make them sound horrible. Yay Kris!!!! It was really funny hearing him sing this, but he did really well! Not his best performance, but def not his worst, doesn’t compare to last week at all. He is def safe, I really enjoyed that! Totally agree with the judges on his, Simon is always right, I’m really glad they let them all talk again, that was stupid when only 2 could talk.

Danny Gokey – “September”: This is getting kinda old, he sings good every week; so my comments get very redundant. A good choice for him I think, he is singing pretty well for disco which kinda surprises me. His arm thrusts are kinda annoying tho, haha, but I guess its his style. I don’t mind if it’s obnoxious because at least he has a style unlike Lil and Anoop; they just get up there and sing every week, no emotion and no personality. Ugh Paula always says the same thing every week, grrrrrr. It’s like she doesn’t have a lot of vocab does she?

Alison Iraheta – “Hot Stuff”: I miss the intros; it makes me sad for no behind the scenes. I love that she is using the whole stage, no1 this season has yet. OMG Lil you need to take notes on Alison and Kris, they change the songs up, that is what changing up a song is; not doing some diff vocals from the original. I hate when Lil is like “I did change up the song Simon, but I had fun” UGH!!! Obviously you didn’t change up the song if the judges can’t tell a diff and u can’t have fun sucking every week, grrrrr!!! But back to Alison, she is amazing; I really think she can win it! It’s amazing!!!

Adam Lambert – “If I Can’t Have You”: Adam has an unreal voice, which is also a recurring theme in these reviews. I like the calmed down look. I seriously got shivers during his performance, it wasn’t even his best, but the vocals were so moving. I can’t wait for him to be in the finals!! It’s gonna be one of the best finales ever!!! He is safe, duh. I wish it was longer tho, it seemed really short.

Matt Giraud – “Stayin’ Alive”: haha this is really ironic!!! I would be so worried if I was him, cause he knows America doesn’t like him the best and this really makes or breaks it for him. This isn’t good enough, I don’t think, which makes me really sad. Cause I know he can do better, but it all depends on how Anoop does cause Lil is def one of the two going home. He shouldn’t try to pull those high notes cause I don’t think he can pull them off that well live, he got some, but he also didn’t get some. I really hope Anoop does horrible and Matt does some more stuff that’s diff and really shows his stuff.

Anoop Desai – “Dim All the Lights”: Idk if this is his idea of disco clothes, but I don’t like it. Another typical Anoop performance, half done just singing the song like if he was at a karaoke song. I really hope he goes home, he pisses me off. He has a horrible attitude and he isn’t good enough to win, Matt on the other hand is actually able to win if he tries hard enough. Please just please us all and let Anoop and Lil go home this week!! Please!!!

Top 2:
1. Adam
2. Alison

Bottom 2:
1. Lil
2. Anoop

All in all, tonight was less of a disappointment as it usually is. Usually everyone does bad and tonight only like 2 or 3 did bad. Alison, Adam, and Kris rocked it with their own versions of the songs and they didn’t even sound like disco anymore which is what I wanted. I really think the top 4 will please me even if the top 5 doesn’t. Adam + Alison + Kris + Matt = <3 <3
I REALLY REALLY HOPE THAT LIL AND ANOOP GO!!!! But I really don’t kno :(

Don’t forget to buy your fav contestants performances on itunes wed after the results show!!! They are amazing!!!

American Idol 8 Top 7: Songs From The Movies Review

This night could be awesome, I don’t know exactly what the conditions are for the songs, but if it’s from any movie I really hope we get some Disney hits. Really everyone can do good tonight cause the theme is so broad. I really hope all the sucky people do better tonight, or really bomb so they go home and we are left with my favs!! (Kris, Adam, Alison, Matt!!!) K could this mentor be any less helpful, Quentin Tarantino? Really? He directs movies, he doesn’t sing in them…
This night could be good; the mentor though is a thumbs down.

Alison Iraheta – “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing”: I love this girl!!! And a pre-idol track just leaked from her, btw. I don’t think this song suited her at all, she probably chose it cause everyone and their mother knows it and it’s her rocker chick image. It was too low for her, I mean she hit all the notes, but her lower notes are not as supported or powerful as her higher ones. Good performance, but kinda disappointed with her tonight, I really hope she stays and continues cause she is amazing and her voice is killer!!!

Anoop Desai – “Everything I Do, I Do For You”: Typical Anoop song, nice and boring; like him. HAHA IS THAT ANOOP’S VERSION OF MAKING IT ROUGH?!?!?! HAHA!!!! Ummmmm, what is he wearing? He just doesn’t have the kind of voice that can handle that “rough” vocals, his voice is nice and simple; and it will stay like that. Another typical Anoop performance, barely performs and sings the song very boring, he and Lil are getting way too predictable.

Adam Lambert – “Born To Be Wild”: YES!! I don’t care at all what Adam sings cause it’ll be amazing!! He will be huge, I swear no matter what happens on this show he will be huge! This is a performance, he is using the stage and tons of energy!! Other contestants pay attention to this!! I say this every week but his voice is UNREAL! I obviously can’t get over it!!! He has got to make it to the finals, if its him and Kris that’ll be such an interesting final cause they are so different. And if its Adam and Alison it’ll be so high energy its not even funny!! I’m a happy camper right now :D Simon’s comment was amazing, I laughed very hard. “Adam you need to express yourself some more”. I am very happy, haha

Matt Giraud – “Really Loved A Woman”: Matt is really amazing, somehow Quentin is being the best mentor ever, haha; his input has by far been the best this season, really unexpected. Matt makes me sad when he is live, he doesn’t do that good, but his studio versions are always one of the best along with Adam. I mean it wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t his best, but no doubt he will have one of the best studio versions. Yes he goes back and forth Kara, because he can do both, I don’t get why they keep complaining, he shows that he is versatile. That’s what they want them to do since they have such diff themes each week, ugh, frustration.

Danny Gokey – “Endless Love”: I don’t know this song, so I’ll only know Danny singing. He looks really weird without glasses, less weird than I expected, but still weird. Oh never mind, I do know this song, haha. He is doing really good, I’m not a huge Danny fan, but I am really liking this. I think its def one of his best, if not his best. It def fits his style and voice very well. Yay Danny snaps for you!

Kris Allen – “Falling Slowly”: He is one of my favs, and one of America’s. I really think he will make it to finals, but I don’t know if he will actually win, but he will def have a career after. He is so insanely, uberly marketable. This is actually very good, not perfect vocals, but Kris has gained his top spot back, last week he kinda lost it a little, and tonight he gained it back!!! That was amazing!!! I can’t wait for that studio version!!! My favs of the night were Danny and Adam and he knocked Danny out. GREAT REALLY GREAT!!

Lil Rounds – “The Rose”: Lil new hair again…really? I liked last week, do u need another hair style? This one does make you look younger, but please just stop now, no more. Wow Lil is doing awesome, and that really surprises me because she has been sucking a lot of the past weeks. I really how she didn’t pretend she has a huge voice like past contestants, she played it safe and kept her voice in its good area, no half done belts. Good for her, I think she did good, I really don’t like her or think this will save her, but the way she has been performing she isn’t winning or making it to final. Amen Simon!!! Also I didn’t really hear the whole gospel part, it wasn’t really gospel, maybe she got a little more intense, but no gospel was in that performance.

Top 2:
1. Adam Lambert
2. Kris Allen

Bottom 2:
1. Anoop Desai
2. Matt Giraud (this really makes me sad, but in my opinion he was one of the worst tonight)

All in all, tonight was a night of mixed feelings. Danny and Lil who I don’t really like actually impressed me, and also Matt who is one of my favs was one of the worst. I’m kinda worried for him and Alison after Anoop goes, cause America just doesn’t seem to like them as much as I do. I hope Anoop goes home 2moro, he just doesn’t even compare to the other 6, then I hope Lil goes home, then Danny and I will be a very very happy camper. Quentin, where did that come from, he was an amazing mentor, I totally didn’t expect that, but he said exactly what I wish I could say to the contestants!

Please Comment!!

Top 14 New Artists of 2009 to Watch For

1. Kesha (or Ke$ha) - Kesha (pronounced Keh-sha) has been in the music world for a couple years but has only been doing her own independent stuff performing and recording on her own. She is now ready to break into the mainstream music world with her new record deal with Sony. You will recognise her voice from FloRida's #1 "Right Round" even tho she isn't credited in US. She has about 25 tracks floating around the internet that will not be on her album out this summer. To imagine her sound think if Katy Perry and Lady GaGa had a kid with a Katy-type voice and Lady GaGa style. Its an awesome sound that will def fit into the music scene today. My fav tracks by her are Butterscotch, Mr. Watson, and Backstabber. All her tracks are fun peppy dancey tracks but she does have some killer ballads like CUNxTuesday that can prove she has the voice behind the awesome beats and attitude.
Butterscotch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFcdJI6_llg
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/keshaishot

2. Travis Garland - Travis used to be the lead singer of NLT, a boyband originating from Texas. This band was one of the best bands in a long time, kinda like the urban pop version of *NSYNC with killer dancing and amazing vocals. These vocals were headed by Travis. Despite this quality of this group they never did well commercially after trying with 3 singles and their albums leaking incredibly early. Over 2 albums worth of tracks by them have leaked and thus helped the push backs of their debut album, so the band has gone on an undecided length break. Travis has thankfully started focussing on his solo career. He has the potential to be the younger and better version of Justin Timberlake. Travis has a better range than Justin and a more powerful and soulful voice than Justin also, and on top of his insane vocal abilities Travis also can dance at least on the same level as JT. He has also done about 13 solo tracks that are either his real songs or demos for other artists, my favs are Electromagnetic (a demo), When You Learn How To Love (a real track), and his AMAZING cover of Dead'N'Gone by T.I. and JT.
Electromagnetic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxpLDt5pqbQ

3. Calvin Goldspink - Calvin is from the UK and has been in the music industry for a while. In his early teenage years he was lucky enough to be picked, out of thousand of kids, to be part of S Club Juniors, a mini me version of the top selling UK band S Club 7. After S Club 7 disbanded S Club Juniors renamed themselves S Club 8 to appeal to an older crowd. They then renamed themselves again to iDream, adding 5 more ppl for a total of 13 bandmates; this new name also came with a TV show similar to the S Club 7 shows watched around the world. After S Club Juniors/S Club 8/iDream disbanded Calvin focused on acting and landed a lead role on The CW's Life Is Wild. The show was cancelled so Calvin went back to music. Joe Simpson (Jessica's and Ashley's father) found him and has become his manager. No word as to when he will be officially releasing stuff, but I am guessing it'll be this year sometime. He has several songs posted on his official myspace and his sound is similar to an acoustic Jesse McCartney, kinda if Jesse and Jason Mraz had a kid, haha. His voice is a lot more soulful than his S Club days and it shows in his new songs. My fav is Your Never Not Beautiful.
Never Not Beautiful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KE1e9JWqDA
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/calvingoldspink

4. Gloriana - Gloriana is made up of 4 members, 2 brothers, 2 chicks. 1 of these chicks being Cheyenne Kimball, the former winner of Most Talented Kid. Cheyenne had 1 solo album and a reality show on MTV tracing her journey to releasing her solo album. Despite the show her album didn't perform well enough on the charts and she didn't release anymore solo records. Gloriana was formed last year mainly by happenstance and now they have a major record label and are doing very well on the country charts and on CMT's video countdown. They are just a younger version of Little Big Town or Lady Antebellum, they are more of a combo of these two groups, their sound isn't exactly like either. Their harmonies are AMAZING!! My favorite track is Wild At Heart which is their first single, they have a couple other tracks floating around the internet that are also solid country tracks.
Wild At Heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv3PJ1YSHFs
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/gloriana

5. Carter Twins - The Carter Twins are also new on the country music scene. They have released their first single Heart Like Memphis and are watching it do very well on the charts and on CMT's video countdown. They are doing a lot of promo around at radio stations and smaller venue concerts recently to promote themselves and their new album. Idk exactly when its gonna be released, but I'm guessing a mid/late summer release. They are like a newer, younger, and a bit poppier version than Brooks and Dunn or Montgomery Gentry. They are def less country than those 2, but also still very country. Kinda like the male version of Taylor Swift, except there is 2 of them.
Heart Like Memphis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zzrFoPkocI
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/cartertwins

6. Parachute - Parachute is brand new on the scene, releasing their first single She Is Love late last month and releasing an amazing viral video for that song. These 5 guys from NC are an amazing musically talented group. They have a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, drummer, and some other random instrument they break out occasionally. The lead singer Will is a combo of Teddy Geiger and Stephen from Laguna Beach, so he automatically attracts the ladies. But he has the vocals to back it up, he actually sounds like a less gritty version of Teddy Geiger, with a better range. This band has the sound of The Fray or One Republic but with a little more emphasis on the music. They really should be a hit group, if they will be or not is another story. The music industry is so screwey, but I honestly think these guys are here to stay :D. And I'm going to see them in concert May 15th (I hope!!!), if I go I'll be sure to post a review of the concert up here.

7. BoA - BoA (pronounced like the snake) is a huge pop diva from Korea and Asia. She has been absolutely huge there ever since she was 13. She has just now made her first all English album and released it over here in the states, this is the year of asian invasion with another pop princess Utada making her English debut over here. In this battle tho BoA def wins, her music is a lot more current and way more upbeat. There isn't 1 track on her album that you can sit down and listen to, haha. She hasn't done amazingly well on charts yet, but on dance charts she has done very well. She needs some promo and she could be huge!! I think she should promote this album and then work on her English to rly get it down and do another smashing album. My fav tracks from it are Eat You Up (the first single), Touched, and Energetic.
Eat You Up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNSJnXyiEx4
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/BoAmusicUSA

8. Jennette McCurdy - Jennette is well known, but not by this name. Most everyone knows her as Sam on iCarly; and when you look at Sam you would never even imagine she could sing. I didn't either, but I was so wrong. Jennette has such a powerful, beautiful voice, its an insane surprise especially when you picture her as Sam. She sings country which is even better cause we don't have a lot of teen stars that do country, with the right promotion she could be like the country version of Miley. Like full fledge country, not Miley's fake country. I would describe her as a younger Taylor Swift, but with a lot more powerful voice. Her debut single So Close is awesome and rly shows off her vocals. She has said that her 2nd single will be out in May and her album in June. I'm so excited for this and really think she can be very successful in music, now all we need is Freddy to also sing then that whole show could sing.
So Close: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MShUlbXouiM
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/jennettemccurdymusic

9. Paradiso Girls - The Paradiso Girls are basically the UK version of The Pussycat Dolls, or at least that is how the industry describes them. My opinion is a lot better than a wannabe version of PCD, these girls have PCD's looks, Girlicious's music style, and Danity Kane's vocals. So they are the ultimate girlgroup. They consist of 5 girls: Chelsea, Lauren, Kelly, Sasha, and Aishe. All the girls represent a diff part of world and sound, we get US, UK, France, Asia, and Carribean in this group. Even tho they are being branded as the UK version of PCD, they are planning on going global immediately and focusing themselves in every market. Their debut single Patron Tequila is a club banger, it has awesome beats and pretty cool vocals also. This year could be theirs if they get promoted well.
Patron Tequila: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2vUo5vGydU
Myspace: no official myspace yet

10. Jadyn Maria - Some of you may remember Jadyn Maria as the little Christian artist in the early 2000's or as the Herbel Essence girl; either way she has left that behind. After getting her record deal, on the same label as fellow Christian artist Stacie Orrico, her label was bought out and most of the lower interest artists were just left behind, including Jadyn and Stacie. Stacie rebounded a lot better because she had previous albums and was well established in the industry, but Jadyn was just starting out and had none of that. She took off music for a while, but last year decided to get back in it. She was doing a lot of lowerkey stuff and just getting her name out there. She is friends with Katy Perry and is one of the bridesmaids in her Hot'N'Cold video. Just a couple weeks ago Jadyn was the first artist signed to Ne-Yo's new record label, and that is awesome because Ne-Yo writes and produces huge hits. Only one current track has been leaked by her and its called Villain and it features FloRida, and its probably one of the best new artists tracks I've heard this year. If you want more of her voice check out her earlier Christian era tracks Choices and Rock You Senseless (the Herbel Essense theme song for 2002).
Villain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X7dKAIcTfI
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/officialjadynmaria

11. Keri Hilson - Keri Hilson has also been in the music world for a while. Prior to 2006 she only was writing for artists like PCD, but then she was featured on Timbaland's smash hit The Way I Are and that launched her recording career. Keri seemed to have everything needed to be an instant hit: high up friends (Timbaland, Ne-Yo, Kanye), experience from writing and knowin the industry, great voice, and good looks, but for some reason that didn't rly work for Keri. Keri has tried in the music world since about this time last year, with her 1st single Energy and her 2nd single Return The Favor; neither of these songs did anything on the charts despite being amazing songs. Having these songs do nothing resulted in her album being pushed back multiple times until we thought it was completely shelved. Then the miracle of Turnin' Me On (Ft. Lil Wayne) came as her 3rd single and did well enough to get the album released, and as plans to release the album materialezed this single actually became a hit which helped her debut album get #4 on billboard charts. Her 4th single Knock You Down (Ft. Kanye West & Ne-Yo) has been added to radios and is doing amazingly well also. Its also my fav track by her, followed by Energy. Now that she is finally getting the success she deserves I think she can rule this year!
Energy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW8wrXjPs5A
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/kerihilson

12. Savannah Outen - Savannah was one of the lucky few who has gotten a record deal from her youtube page, but this girl definitely deserves it. She was snatched up by Disney because she has the Disney look and sound. On her youtube she covered everything from Rihanna to P!nk to High School Musical and delivered each with flawless ease while also playing her guitar. She is the pop version of Taylor Swift because she plays guitar and also writes or co-writes almost all of her music. Her debut single Goodbyes was written during her 8th grade graduation. Her voice is very powerful considering she is only about 15. Her 2nd single Unlock The Door was released but with zero promotion and (I think) just cancelled. But just recently she has changed her stage name to Savannah and released her 2nd single If You Only Knew and an accompanying music video. If she gets promoted right she could have the same success like Taylor Swift on the pop charts. She is a great role model for girls, unlike Miley Cyrus.
Goodbyes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3QSPyLD7gA
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/savannahoutenofficial

13. Wynter Gordon - Wynter has been recording stuff for about 2 years now but hasn't ever had anything officially released. Back in 2007 she had a huge internet hit called Surviellance, it drove the bloggers crazy cause every1 wanted it and every1 in the online music world loved this track. We all expected it 2 be her debut single off an album coming out in 2007, 2008 at the latest, but it never did. She has kinda dwindled away over the past 2 yrs preparing her debut cd. She is just now ready to attack the music world with avengence. She is starting this off by being featured on Flo Rida's 2nd single Sugar off R.O.O.T.S. Her debut solo single is expected for an early summer release and an album following late this year. Her sound is similar to a Cassie who can actually sing, kinda a mix of Beyonce and Cassie. She has had about 3 cds amount of tracks leak onto the internet, my favs are def the first smash Surveillance, Time's Up, and Turn It Up. She can deliver the awesome dance hits and then uses her powerful voice to deliver moving ballads.
Surveillance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1i0_jgay2Lc
Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/wynter85

14. Kristinia Debarge - Kristinia was one of the top 30 finalists on American Juniors, the peewee version of American Idol. She is also the daughter of James Debarge who used to be in the group Debarge, and married to Janet Jackson. I just found out about this girl yesterday, and I wrote this post about 1 week ago, so my info on her is alot less.

Others to keep an smaller eye on:
Leighton Meester - Leighton is one of the stars on Gossip Girl and plays Blair, you'd be surprised how good her voice is, she plans on releasing an album this year.

Samantha Jade - Samantha was a childhood model and then started to sing in her early teen years. She was lucky to have gotten the title song "Step Up" from the movie Step Up. She has released one other single that performed ok on the charts and is planning on this year to continue her music career.

Jessi Malay - Jessi used to be in the girl group No Secrets until they disbanded after lead singer Angel went solo. She has released 3 singles, none performing well on charts, but this year has decided to revamp her style and see if she can have success with 1 more try. I love her song Booty Bangs, is kinda funny and it actually a good song.

I hope yall enjoy this post and def check out these artists, cause I'm positive at least half of these artists will have at least 1 hit this year. Kesha, Carter Twins, Gloriana, and Keri Hilson already have hits on their charts.

American Idol Top 8: Songs From The Year You Were Born Review

This week isn’t really too special, at least not for me cause I don’t know most of these songs cause they were before me. But it’s fine, because it gives me a chance to think it’s their own song; like the contestants are the first people I will hear sing the song. I read some spoilers on song choice and other people think they should do well, so ill just agree with the masses and hope tonight will be really good. I’m gonna go ahead and call some stuff: Adam, Kris, and Danny will do amazing and the judges will gush over them; Matt will do good but the judges will not think so; Lil will just be ordinary again; Scott will play the piano; and Anoop will just kinda be there.

Danny Gokey – “Stand by Me”: The beginning wasn’t that impressive, I was kinda worried for the whole performance. He def got better as it went on, but one of his weakest performances in my opinion. He didn’t look happy performing 2nite, kinda like he was forced to pick a song he rly didn’t like. It’s kinda sad, but he’ll be fine for next week so I don’t need to worry.

Kris Allen – “All She Wants To Do Is Dance”: I don’t like when they perform in the mosh pit, its weird; you can’t see them at all. Pretty cool typical Kris performance, he has def defined his style on the show for what he will do after. Solid performance with good vocals, but def not his best; especially compared to last week. He’s also still safe because America loves him, so 2 of the best haven’t done their best. I wonder how every1 else will do 2nite.

Lil Rounds – “What’s Love Got To Do With It”: She could do amazing with this song! Oh well, horrible beginning, very weak. I rly like the newest hair style, keep this one Lil. The chorus was better, but she still is a little pitchy. I think they need to get rid of this night in future years because 3 of the 5 frontrunners have done rly bad. Why are they doing bad? Flunk week, get rid of the theme. The judges are completely right on this one, COMPLETELY.

Anoop Desai – “True Colors”: I rly don’t have high hopes for him at all, he just isn’t good enough for this competition, just kick him off and be done with it. I feel like my reviews are slowly becoming very redundant, cause these contestants aren’t doing anything special or different; grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. As much as I want him gone, he is doing the best so far. Why is this happening?!?!?! He is def a music Yo-Yo.

Scott McIntyre – “The Search Is Over”: I’m just gonna go ahead and say I won’t like it, but maybe he will surprise me…Maybe he should just go bald, cause the new haircuts just aren’t working for him. What guitar!!!!??? It’s rly weird seeing him standing up!! He isn’t doing that bad, and I rly rly like him playing the guitar. I still don’t want him to stay, but that was his best in my opinion. He actually performed it, I was impressed. Very pitchy, but he’s Scott, he’s always pitchy. Somehow Scott is winning me over a bit, I don’t get this, I’m very confused. haha

Alison Iraheta – “I Can’t Make You Love Me”: OMG Alison has my sister’s birthday, but Alison is one year older, but still same day. Yay Alison! She is doing very well, I rly love her. I don’t get why she is always in the bottom 3, I think she is def one of the best this season. Her voice is very current, I can’t wait to see what she does after the show, cause I think she could do rly well! I’m so happy right now, she stopped the rly bad curse of this night! So out of the 5 frontrunners 1 has done good and 3 have done bad, weird.

Matt Giraud – “Part Time Lover”: OMG, he can be amazing, this is perfect and soulful like his voice. If I get on this show I rly hope they don’t show my little kid musicals cause I had A TON, haha. I don’t get how America doesn’t like him either, I think he is one of the strongest along with Alison but America just isn’t biting. Matt killed it! He was def my fav of the night, he killed it!! I’m so insanely happy right now! And he held that high note at the end! Yay, he normally doesn’t keep those, but he did! Yay!!

Adam Lambert – “Mad World”: I heard a lot of ppl were rly excited he was doing this song, because apparently he will kill it. I’m excited to see for myself! This guy is incredible!!! I don’t know how he does it, but he can sing anything and he kills it, anything!! His voice is just unreal, that range and control is just truly amazing!! OMG!!! SIMON GAVE HIM A STANDING OVATION!! THAT’S AMAZING!!!

Top 3:
1. Alison Iraheta
2. Matt Giraud

Bottom 3:
1. Lil Rounds
2. Danny Gokey
3. Scott McIntyre

Final Thoughts: 2nite was making me very sad at the beginning, I honestly was mad cause I knew ppl coulda done better than this. And then somehow Anoop did good and every1 after was good. Idk its so strange. And then the last 3 just stole the show, I’m so excited cause they are my fav, also Kris, but I know he is safe so I’m not worrying!
If Scott or Anoop goes home I’ll be a happy camper, or even Lil or Danny cause then it’ll leave room for my favs to take the lead :D

Top 10 Foreign Arists You Must Hear

Yes, this is another music note by me, haha, I'm kinda obsessed now. This time I'm telling yall the top 10 foreign artists you must hear, this doesn't include foreign artists that have been released in US only artists that are only in their home country, or other countries not including US. So here's the list :D

The Saturdays on the set of their video for "Up!"
1. The Saturdays - The newest UK girlband, their debut album has gone platinum and all their 4 singles have been in the top 10 in UK. They are already working on their 2nd album and are gonna go on their first headlining tour in June. They are already in Asia, but thats it besides UK and Ireland. They have plans to come to America so it would be awesome for yall to be obsessed with them b4 the rest of America gets hooked!
Suggested Tracks: Work; Up!

2. Jessica Mauboy - Jessica came in 2nd place on Australian Idol in 2006, she then went on to join Young Divas a girlgroup made up of past female Australian Idol contestants and she released 1 album with them. After leaving Young Divas to focus on her solo career she released her first single 'Been Waiting (ft. Flo Rida)' and her album Been Waiting. All 3 of her singles off Been Waiting have been top 5 hits, with Burn being #1. She has secured a deal in Japan and UK so her album is being released in those countries and is also in talks with US labels to release it here.
Suggested Tracks: Burn; Been Waiting

3. Janet Leon - Newest Swedish pop/r&b star, former lead singer of Play girlband. Her debut single 'Let Go' has gone to #3 on Swedish itunes. She is planning to be goin worldwide, but as of right now she is only in Sweden and a couple more European countries.

5. *Shayne Ward - UK version of Justin Timberlake. He won the 2nd season of X-Factor (show Leona Lewis came from), but unlike Leona was never officially released worldwide. His first 2 albums have been #1 and #2 on UK charts respectively and his 3rd albums is slated for May release. He has released 6 singles all being top 10's except one only reaching #14.
Suggested Track: If That's OK With You

6. Erik Hassle - My new obsession and also a new upcoming star in Sweden, his single Hurtful has performed well on the charts. His debut cd has already been released, but it hasn't all at the same time. Its a confusing thing, but either way this guy is awesome and will most likely be going worldwide once he is released in Sweden
Suggested Track: Hurtful

7. Danny - Danny is also from Sweden, big surprise. His real name is Danny Saucedo and was on Swedish Idol 2006 where he placed 5th, but is one of the most succesful Swedish Idol contestants after the show. He has released 2 solo albums and also is part of a band called E.M.D. which is made up of 3 Swedish Idol contestants and they have released 1 album and are about 2 release their 2nd.
Suggested Track: Radio
8. *RyanDan - Ryan & Dan are twin brothers from Canada, but are now in UK. They released their debut album RyanDan in 2007, and their 2nd album is rumored for a spring 2009 release. They used to be in the Canadian boyband B4-4. Their debut album was #7 in UK and is a mix of classical/pop/opera; its a weird combo but it sounds amazing!
Suggested Track: Tears Of An Angel

9. *Will Young - First winner of Pop Idol in UK (American Idol is based off this show). He however hasn't had the same success as US's Kelly Clarkson. He has had 4 albums all being #1 or #2 on UK charts; he has released 16 singles, 4 being #1 and 10 being top 10 singles.

American Idol Top 9: Top Downloads Week Review

When I first heard this theme it kinda made me angry, this is THE easiest theme of any season at this stage of the show. They can pick exactly wat suites them and they aren't stretched at all. It makes me rly angry, but excited too cause it can be an AMAZING night cause its soooo easy and broad. So hopefully every1 will do good!! :D

Anoop Desai: Usher "Caught Up" - this song was an ok choice for anoop cause its soulful and his voice is pretty soulful but not to the level of usher. He is singin it pretty good but he sounds like he is pushin his voice a little and his runs aren't on point. All in all a pretty good choice but coulda done something more like wat he would do after idol, I'm pretty sure he won't do r&b and if he does he won't sell in my opinion. And he didn't do any dancin and usher is like a crazy dancer. So not rly that impressed, every1 coulda shined 2nite and he def didn't. Ewwwww he said he wants 2 be an r&b artist!!! Ahhhhh! He will not do good!!

Megan Joy: Bob Marley/Lauryn Hill "Turn Your Lights Down Low" - what is with this girl. The past couple weeks haven't been so bad for me, she wasn't good but her voice was kinda cool and it made me like her. This week that is a big NO! Her voice is the same and she can't sing this song, she isn't changin at all. Idk wat it is now, she is just butcherin it and her voice isn't doin anythin right; plus she looks rly bad, usually she looks good but 2nite idk she wore mom jeans!! Ewwww!! She chooses the worst songs completely, I agree with kara that adele woulda been better, sure megan doesn't have adele's pipes but her voice is similar. She coulda chosen an amazing song that every1 knows to already give her a heads up, but she chose some random older song that completely didn't fit. 2nite coulda been awesome but so far its sucking!!

Danny Gokey: Rascal Flatts "What Hurts The Most" - initial thoughts are good choice for him, I thought he shoulda sung something by them on country week so he should KILL it! I don't rly like him, but he does have a good voice, I just don't kno where he would fit in music industry. He song it pretty well but some pitchy moments. I honestly thought he would do better, it got worse as the song went on. Still so far the best, but its not hard to be better than anoop or megan, haha. He still gets too much love when he doesn't deserve it. I rly don't think he did that well, in my opinion it was one of his worst. So idk, but for me I wasn't that impressed. His performance was emotional, that was def seen, but nothin too special for me...pity

Alison Iraheta: No Doubt "Don't Speak" - this should be good, but she coulda done p!nk so much better imo (in my opinion). But this girl can rly sing anything and sound amazing. I rly like her hair also, haha. Pretty good performance, that kind of music fits her rly well. I'm rly happy, she has been one of the best week after week, if she continues like this than she rly might have a chance of winning! K I'm sry she is so awkard, but her voice is killer, but she seems like THE most awkward person, haha. Agree with kara, not her best but its def a good one. I rly think she coulda done p!nk soooooo much better, but hopefully if she makes it to the judges choice week they will chose p!nk for her!

Scott MacIntyre: Billy Joel "Just The Way You Are" - omg!!! That hair is horrible, I kno every week I complain about the hair and I finally get a new hair style, but honestly the stylist should give him bad hair cuts just cause he is blind, that's just mean. Btw I am SOOOOOO FRICKIN EXCITED for that Glee show, it looks amazing. Like HSM but tv show version, k bac 2 idol. I'm laughin so hard when they close up on his face, that hair is from grease. He isn't singin that well either. His voice is very shaky, like rly shaky. Last week I didn't hate him and was pleased, so much for that feeling. Its gone, idk if he coulda chosen another song but all I kno if he was so shaky. Also where is paula learnin all these big words from, haha.

Matt Giraud: The Fray "You Found Me" - the fray is PERFECT for him!! Yay matt, now don't screw it up. Matt has rly moved up and become one of my favs, and I like him bein in the middle of the crowd. This is wat every1 shoulda been doin 2nite rly current stuff to show america that they are current. This is amazing!!! The studio version is gonna be unreal!! This is the best performance of the night so far, and will prolly be one of the best for the whole night. Btw judges u can have cds with multiple genres and influences. Listen to any of kelly clarkson's cds, they credit themselves for findin her and she has all sorts of influences from techno to rock. So be quiet judges, haha

Lil' Rounds: Celine Dion "I Surrender" - when ryan said celine dion I was worried cause she DOES NOT have that good of a voice to even attempt to tackle celine. Hopefully she will change it a bit so it doesn't sound exactly like a horrible attempt at celine. I don't like the new hair. Not impressed at all, she sounds horrible comparin this to celine. Like rly bad, the bridge was good, and the beltin was also. But that's about it, I was pleased with her beltin 2day tho, cause usually it just doesn't happen for her but her belts were on 2nite. Way too boring for lil. But watev I don't rly like her so I don't care if she stays or goes. I'd rather megan and scott go b4 her cause she is nicer to listen to than those, haha.

Adam Lambert: Wild Cherry "Play That Funky Music" - this makes me sad, hell do good cause he is adam, but he could do something so much better and more current, oh well. Once again another amazing performance from adam, he can do no wrong in my eyes, even if its weird his voice is killer and I just can't get enought of it. Cannot wait for the studio version!!! I swear paula is on drugs or is drunk, I don't kno which, but she isn't right in the head.

Kris Allen: Marvin Gaye "Ain't No Sunshine" - I'm so excited!! Kris is one of my favs this season and he does amazing every week. Its nice to see him on keyboard, I didn't kno he could play that too. His voice is just so much higher quality than scotts, havin both play piano rly shows how much better kris is and how scott isn't up to par with these guys!! This is def the best of the night!! I rly think he has this contest in the bag, I honestly think he can take over and win it!! Yay!!!! I'm DYING for this studio version cause its gonna be on repeat on my ipod :D!!!

Top 3 (not in order):

1. Matt

2. Adam

3. Kris (the best!!!!)
Bottom 3 (not in order):

1. Megan

2. Anoop

3. Scott

My final thoughts on the night is that it def showed who the ppl who will survive in the music industry are and those who will crash and die (i.e. Megan and anoop). The 2nd half was def better than the first, the last 3 or 4 performances were universes better than the first ones. The frontrunners are rly showin themselves (adam, kris, and alison; maybe lil, danny, and matt also). Once anoop, megan, scott, and lil/danny leaves I will have prolly my fav top/finals of any season!! Yay me, yay american idol!! Haha

Don't forget to go on itunes wednesday after the results show and buy the studio versions of the tracks! They rly are great and u can hear kinda wat they will sound like on their cds.
