These are my favorite shows to watch, the variety of talent shows on TV, seeing unknown people making it big and becoming a celebrity. To become one, one must work hard and become successful. Never let people bring you down, stay with positive people. The key for being successful is work hard, a dedication of commitment that you want to do. Surpass what the bullies told you that you will never make it, or the boyfriend/girlfriend did not get from you and now they want you back. Don’t! Stay in the present and move forward with your life. Become like Taylor Swift, use your past experiences and turn them into stories or songs, get it out from your chest, the burden and the pain. The real friends are your talent. Become what you want to do. Here are the winners for this week.
For Dancing with the Stars was Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Meryl Davis also won the Gold during the winter Olympics in Sochi, with her partner Charlie White.
For The Voice was Josh Kaufman, he’s a R&B singer and from Team Usher.
For American Idol was Caleb Johnson from Asheville, NC. Another Carolina had won before too, which was good. This is the original show that started the reality talent shows and discovered new stars, a pioneer produced by Simon Cowell, in which the X-factor was cancelled due to low ratings, who won last time and record sales of the albums.
This talent shows the struggle and the transformation of being a celebrity and the sacrifice they become one.
Michael Jackson is making music from the grave, well not really. LA Reid, former x-factor judge and music producer is producing his next album with new songs that we never heard before. Before Michael Jackson passed away in 2009, he was working on his last concert film and before that, he recorded new music. Some of his new music’s we haven’t heard before are locked up in a
How did LA Reid picked the title? In a recent interview with an Entertainment Reporter “He was doing a prayer on This is It as they were about to embark on that tour, and he said to them ‘It’s about escape-ism.’”
So the name Escape was mention by Michael Jackson and so it is being used.
The new album will be coming soon and some weird supernatural and paranormal way, Michael Jackson will be appearing on the Bill Board Music Awards on ABC. Probably some old footages that we never saw before, that will be presented.
Can’t wait to hear it and how will they pulled it off on a live stage. Catch the Bill Board Music Awards on ABC May 18, 2014 8 pm.
Another bites the dust, Jessica Meuse eliminated from American Idol.
Jessica did good, in performance, but did she take the judges critic to perform better, I think she did. If she did, someone will go home. Eventually she was eliminated, probability she wasn’t connecting to the audience, that’s the difficult part. All of the others contestant connected to the audience Caleb connected to his audience by singing in front of Keith Urban, face – someone needed a mint. Jena connected to the audience and she made Jennifer Lopez said the “F” word. Jena was good. Jena is in the top contender to win American Idol. Jena can take an old song and make it better. Jessica took an old song, but it wasn’t better. If she took her swan song “Blue-Eyed Lie” and sang that, she would not go home. But she left on a high note, she will do great, and maybe surpass the other contenders when her CD’s come out. But it is all about the sales of the music. Will people buy her CD’s when it comes out? She better connect with audience or they will never buy it at all.
Congratulations to Jamaican Tessanne Chin for winning The Voice. She was surprised, she hugged her parents when they came to the stage. With all the excitement she had to sing the final song for the night. It was a One Republic’s Ryan Tedder song which was sung by the winner.
Her mentor Adam Levine came on stage and presented her with the trophy. If The Voice gives out award to the winner the X-factor and American Idol does not give out awards, they should give an award to the winners.
Anyway, Jacquie Lee from New Jersey was the second, Christina Aguilera was proud that she made this far in the competition. She even won a car and she’s not old enough to drive it yet. Probably the parents would get a chauffer for her and she will be able to fun with the car. She would get a record deal and her album will come out next Spring in 2014.
Other highlights for the night:
The boy band Matthew Schuler, Nic Hawk, Ray Boudreaux, Josh Logan, and Preston Pohl sang Bruno Mar’s “Treasure”
Will Champlin, Cole Vosbury, Caroline Pennell, Jonny Gray, and Austin Jenckes sang Lumineerian cover of “Wagon Wheel”;
The ladies sang My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kat Robichaud, Shelbie Z., Stephanie Anne Johnson, Amber Nicole, Grey, and Tamara Chauniece;
Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera sang “Do What U want” with champagne glasses in their hands.
David Blaine is an American illusionist and endurance artist. He’s best known for his high-profile feats of endurance, and has made his name as a performer of street and close-up magic. He has set and broken several world records.
Blaine was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Patrice Maureen White (1946–1995) and William Perez. His father was of half Puerto Rican and half Italian descent, and his mother was of Russian Jewish descent. Blaine’s mother was a school teacher living in New York, and his father was a Vietnam veteran. When he was four years old, he saw a magician performing magic in the subway. This sparked a lifelong interest for Blaine. He was raised by his single mother and attended many schools in Brooklyn. When he was ten years old, his mother married John Bukalo and they moved to Little Falls, New Jersey, where he attended Passaic Valley Regional High School. He has a half-brother named Michael James Bukalo. When he was 17 years old, Blaine moved to Manhattan.
Is magic real or not real, that was Tuesday, November 19, 2013 night performance of David Blaine magic or is it real. Magic is done with the hands and enable to manipulate cards trick in many ways in human impossible that we are still baffled of how did he do it. How did he do it? The secret is hours of training and preparation. Testing the human body at it’s own risk. It is human impossible that we cannot do this, only a train magician can. It takes hours of practice, and numerous times visiting the hospital for magic related injury. I am still confuse of how did he do it.
When he pierced his hand with an ice pick, that was human impossible to do, but it was for real. For a minute, I thought it was stage, when David Blaine went to the doctor and got his hand x-ray. It was for real. There is hole in his hand but no blood. He used his friends (actors who knew him personal) and get their reaction. Magic is real, or is it?
“David has no blood running through his hands” said the doctor.
Then he used the connector, he would have two people stretch out their arms, place their hands together and move two fingers from one person and the other person finger would move along with it. Is it power of suggestion? Or reflex? I tried this trick on my parents and it worked. Whoa!!
Another one when he tells one person to closed his eyes and the other person to open his eyes. He would wave his hands in front their face to sync it. Then he touched the person with eyes open and the other person would feel it. He did not touch the other person at all. That person was surprised that he did not touch him at all.
When David Blaine guessed the woman’s color by using fire, the name of the color appear on a graffiti wall as indigo. Why did she trace the word indigo in the air? Could she touch the word on the wall to make sure it was real? Is it real or magic?
Another street magic when he asked a passerby for money. It was a twenty dollar bill. He would ask the person who had a cigarette and used it to make a hole in the money, and pass it through the money. He then seal the hole. Her reaction was the WTF moment.
When David was with Olivia Wilde and her boyfriend, they gave David a twenty dollars. David ask Oliva to sign the bill. David would bit and tear the corner of the bill and swallow the money, with the bill half torn. David grab the money with his lips and paste it together, the bill was back together. Still amazing. And for Olivia Wilde she’s amazing, her body was too.
The other tricks he used was card tricks, he would or guessed their cards in different ways. Finding them in fruits or pockets. He would do card tricks for Psy, President George Bush., Emmy Rossum, Stephen Hawkins and many more. Their reaction was the same, being surprised of how did he do it. He could work for the White House and fix the economy.
He then eat glass from Katy Perry. He could have added Ketchup to it for flavor. Then he took out an alligator from her purse. It looked like he did and the purse was made of alligator skin anyway. He would guess someone pin code, that was excited.
Playing cards with Magician they could easily win the jackpot at any time. Here’s an interesting fact, David Blaine and other magicians are not allowed to play casino games or play games in Las Vegas, they could easily win the lottery at any time.
For the regurgitating act, it took 20 years and many hours to practice and making it perfect to perform this act. He got this act when watching Hadji Ali. Hadji Ali did the same act when he swallow water and kerosene. The kerosene liquid would float on top of the water. He would make fire and put it out with water that he store in his stomach.
David Blaine track down the person who did the same thing, he lived it Africa. David would learn how to do it and the secrete of doing it. Once mastering the regurgitating, he then performs it. He performed it to his friends like Woody Allen and bystanders and they were shocked and amaze of what he did. The doctors advise not to consume Kerosene, because of chemicals. When he was doing the act, he consumed Kerosene, he describe as it was burning sensation in his stomach. He immediately took it.
Celebrity magician take many risk and take up to many hours of training to perform a trick, which is good. Some even lead to minor injury. So practice your craft before a live performance.
Last night was the first live performance of America’s Got Talent. So far, the judges pick the right contestants to perform last night and some were good. But it was America to decide of who will go and who will stay. Will American people vote and watch their favorite go home? The results will be on tonight at 9pm on NBC.
Collins Key did magic and once again he baffled the mind of the judges. The judges liked him and so did the audience. I hope he continues to do close up magic with the judges or with the audience member. He’s a keeper. Or can he pull off by doing big tricks, like Special Head did. He did well before, but it looks like Special Head is not Special anymore. The timing of the trick did not go as plan. The smoke did not cover him up completely and Special’s head head was shown when he disappear. Why would he be on the top of RCMH (Radio City Musical Hall) marquee? He should have reappeared behind the judges.
Anna Christine sang good and so did Aarlyn and Izzy, the brother and sister duo. Is that singing? Screaming like a heavy metal band? Howard was right. It’s a million dollar act, the contestants should step it up and be serious of winning. The only contestant who out shine in the singing group was Braden James, he connected with the audience and the judges to.
Fresh Faces a group of 5 young girls dance, they were good and it looked like they were having fun, but they were not in sync they were all over the place. But I like Hype they were good and modern dance. I hope people voted for Hype.
Kristef Brothers did an incredible act, their act was an acrobatic and strength and it was funny with the jock strap. Howie was amazed and called it the “best act of the night.” Let’s put it this way: At one point, one of the Brothers was balancing himself with one hand — on the other’s head! It was crazy!
Tellavision were dancing with TV monitors with images and real dancer too, it was good and different.
American Hitman, veterans from the Iraqi war sang and performed, they were also good too.
Alexander the Great, even Houdini would be proud of her. She escaped from a glass water tank with chains and locks and used a lock pit to unlock and escape. I almost passed out. I was holding breath when she did this act.
Kevin Downy Jr. was hysterical funny as a comedian. He made me laugh and the judges laugh too. He’s a keeper.
Candice Glover was crowned and won American Idol last week, her runner up was Kree Harrison. She’s the first female winner since Season 6, when Jordin Sparks won.
Candice sang “I Am Beautiful” wonderful song done by Candice. Do you think it will be a hit and who wrote it? Who ever wrote the song, it should cater to her and her fans who voted for her. Kree sang “All Cried Out” beautiful done. It was a journey for both of them to make it this big and the excitement lineup.
The guys Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley and Curtis Finch, Jr. sang with Frankie Valli, the classic songs of yesteryears like the one you will from Timelife music collection. Psy took center stage and did the pony-tail wagging of “Gentlemen” even my mom was grooving with the song in her wheel chair.
In one hilarious moment the girls outsmarted the boys by pulling out a prank to eliminate the guys one by one for a woman could win. The person behind the prank was Jordin Sparks from season 6.
Arthea Franklin sang with the five remaining girls, via satellite, it would much easier if she had come to perform with the girls.
Angie Miller sang David Guetta and Sia’s “Titanium” with Lambert, followed by the long-promised duet with Angie’s personal hero Jessie J, who was sporting a bald head for cancer awareness, on the song “Domino.” The good news: Jessie J invited Angie to the U.K. to perform Angie’s forthcoming single in concert. The bad news: They got Adam on stage again and didn’t let him talk.
Mariah Carrey sang her greatest hit and it was incredible to hear her voice and some claim that she lip-sync her own songs, evidently she sang live in front of the audience.
Randy Jackson and Keith Urban were on their electric guitars and “Little Bit of Everything.”
And the big moment of the night, Niki Manji sitting at the judges table wished she could contributed something to American Idol, which was embarrassed for her. She just sat there and watches all the talented judges performing with the Idol contestants. Bring out the bikini girl.
