America Got Talent: Golden Buzzer

Goldern Buzzer

The dancing eagle at the beginning of the show, danced with judges to get the spirit up and excite the audience. Is that talent? A dancing eagle? Apparently, it was Tyra Banks who was underneath the costume, pranking the judges. I still like when Nick Cannon prank the judges with his mime act, that was hilarious.

Courtney Hadwin,13 is a fantastic singer, and she rocks it on stage, and she got the golden buzzer by Howie Mandel.  She will be in the top 5, and she will be going to the live show in Hollywood in a matter of weeks. Howie did it again, make sure you vote for her when she makes it to Hollywood.Watch it here.

Sophie Fatu, she did good, and she did it her way. Cute and adorable. Is she a little too young to compete, we will see.

Noah Guthrie famous from Glee (2009), Emmy and Golden Globe winner,  he played Roderick Meeks. He has a fantastic voice. He will be going to Hollywood again and second chance of a music career. Remember to vote for him when he makes to Hollywood. Plus I was a fan of the show, and they had great music almost like a musical. Listen to his hits:

American Idol – The Last Season

What do Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, Phillip Phillips, Candice Glover, Caleb Johnson, and Nick Fradiani have in common? They all won American Idol when it first premier in the summer of 2002. And, even since we were hooked to see our hometown friend to become major celebrities. And, we did not know that your friend could sing!

This is the last season of American Idol. Why? Probably the fans had enough to see good talent. These teenagers or teen adults they have great talent and they can sing, and they want to showcased their talents and get recognized by someone who can help them to be successfully. Without American Idol, and X-factor people will be working normal jobs and get minimum wage and be working on a farm for the rest of their lives and not being recognize for their singing talents. They have worked so hard to study their craft and this is their last chance for stardom and helped their family out from financially situation. It’s a long road to be successfully. We have to try and try again. So if your son or daughter have talent in singing, their local school can help them. Or have them take singing lesson and participate in their local community theater. Your children should have a musical theater background in order to become a singer, actor, and dancing.

Here are some highlights from American Idol.

Joseph Kchlruss

Joseph Kohlruss sang opera. It was interesting, but the judges wanted to hear if he could sing a pop song. Being a classic trained opera is not that popular he should have tried America’s Got Talent. Remember Jackie Evancho? Tried American Got Talent.

Sonika Vaid 3

Sonika Vaid she sang beautiful and she looked amazing. The judges said that she could win American Idol. If she works hard and compete with other contestants then she could make it. It would be nice to see an American Asian to win American Idol and it would be a first. If she makes it for the live shows please vote her.

Josiah Siska 2

Josiah Siska sang a Johnny Cash song and he can hit the low deep voice better than Joseph Kohlruss. He did scale with his voice and it was incredible to listen. He will definitely make it to the live show and survive Hollywood drama week soon.

Jeneve R Mitchell

Jeneve Rose Mitchell, 15, lives in remote mountain in Crawford, Colorado in the quite corner of Elk Wilderness. The place she lives at has no electricity or water but a working generator where she gets a chance to see American Idol, local shows and the news.

She is homeschool and she had a cello strapped across her chest. She sang an unplugged cover of The Band Perry hit “Chainsaw”

Jenny’s mother is a heath care provider and operates a local family clinic. Her father serves as vocal coach and a carpenter.

The judges loved her voice and her character. If she is in top ten in American Idol, they should give her more generators for she could watch American Idol.

What do Hillary Scott, Cobie Caillet, Mary Lambert, Amber Riley, Naya Rievera, Tori Kelly, and Alex & Sierra have in common? They have all audition for American Idol but rejected and look how they become successfully in the music and entertainment business.

The other way, is never crashed live event like the People Choice Awards with a group of women. Tried YouTube! Or audition! At least he’s being recognize as the person who crashed the acceptance speech from The Talk.

Cory Monteith Dies

Cory MonCory Monteith, died on July 13, 2013. He was 31 years old. What the Autopsy found was heroin and alcohol and that caused his death at the  Vancouver Hotel room where he collapses to his death. Reports said that he was battling demons, or could it be the angle of death that he confronted in his hotel room and decided to take away Cory Monteith. Sometime when Heroin and alcohol are mixed together people will often hallucinate. Did the Angel of Death appeared in the room with him? And had a confrontation before he died.

He left behind was his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michelle from “Glee” and close family members.

In an interview with Parade magazine in 2011, he discussed his history of substance abuse as a teen, and in April 2013 he again sought treatment for addiction. Maybe with all the energy and the drugs he has taken the night before he died caused him to his death.

He was the younger son of Ann McGregor, an interior decorator, and Joe Monteith, a military man who served in the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. He had an older brother named Shaun. Monteith’s parents divorced when he was seven years old, and he and his older brother were raised by their mother in Victoria, British Columbia. After the divorce he saw little of his father due to Joe Monteith’s military service, and he had social difficulties at school. From age 13, he used alcohol and marijuana and started being truant from school.

After attending 16 schools, including alternative programs for troubled teens, he dropped out altogether at age 16. By that time, his drug and alcohol dependency had increased and Monteith turned to petty crimes, such as stealing money from friends and family, to fund his addictions. The turning point in Monteith’s life came when his mother and a group of friends staged an intervention when he was 19, and he began attending a rehabilitation program. Monteith stated, “I’m lucky on so many counts. I’m lucky to be alive.” He eventually received his high school diploma in 2011 from an alternative school he attended in his youth in Victoria.

Monteith began his acting career in Vancouver, British Columbia. He played minor roles in Final Destination 3, Whisper, and Deck the Halls. He had a recurring role in Kyle XY. He also made guest appearances in television serials such as Smallville, Supernatural, Flash Gordon, Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate SG-1. In 2005, he appeared in Killer Bash, about a tormented geek’s soul that was taking revenge on his murderer’s children by taking over a girl’s twin body. The following year, he made a brief appearance in Urban Legend: A Bloody Mary. In 2007, he starred in the MTV series Kaya as Gunnar. In April 2010, Monteith was cast in the romantic comedy movie Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez. In August 2010, he co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards. Monteith hosted the Gemini Awards in Toronto on 13 November 2010. In December 2010, it was announced that Monteith would be starring in and co-producing a new untitled workplace-caper comedy for Fox 2000.

Before breaking into show business, Monteith worked various jobs, including Walmart people greeter, taxicab driver, school bus driver, and roofer.

He will be missed from Glee when it appears in the fall of 2013. But his spirit remains at Glee.

Glee’s Iqbal Theba (Principal Figgins) Helps Pakistani flood relief fund

Glee’s  Iqbal Theba (Principal Figgins) posted on  Twitter: “Please, RT. Help me! Support…..http://www.starsforhope.org/. ‘Stars For Hope’ is an awareness campaign started by the leaders of the Pakistani-American community to raise funds for the Pakistani flood relief fund.”

There will be a “Stars of Hope” celebrity fundraiser event thrown by OPEN Chicago on January 16, 2011, in Chicago. The event will feature our beloved Iqbal Theba, as well as actors Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show) and Faran Tahir (Ironic Man, Star Trek, Charlie Wilson’s War).

We salute you, Iqbal, for your efforts to help others this season! But hey, since It is the season of giving, maybe you could cut the glee club a little slack in the new year?

Gleeee and Wow: Taking Longer to Read in the Bathroom

If people who loved “Glee” they should know there are actors who are portraying high school students in the fictional world of high school glee club. Actress Dianna Agron said she’s sorry about some aspects of GQ’s recent racy “Glee” spread. However, why would anyone like 8 years old child who wants to read GQ? Can an 8 years old child read this magazine? No. Take the magazine away from the child and replace with Katy Perry and Elmo on the cover of Sesame Street Magazine!

“If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention,” Agron wrote on her blog, noting that “Glee” is not the first pop phenomenon to push this particular envelope. And she’s right. Britney Spears, and Miley Cyrus have pushed the limits of being more adults and the Glee cast is mostly mature and they are not teenagers, but raising issues they go through on each episode.

“And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry,” she said. “But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?”

What she meant to say, why a child an 8 year old would want would read a magazine like that. Do they go by the articles? No the pictures of course.

Is it time to stop subscribing to GQ, which comes to the house? If you have children underage like 12, they should not read it.

Or if you notice your child takes longer in the bathroom,  you know what they are reading. At least they are reading.
