The Voice Philippines 2: Grand Finale

It’s the The Voice Philippines Season 2 Finale! Usually, it always feel like a season just flies by, but that's not the case here. It went by too long, I lost interest towards the end. Oh well, we’re here now, so my rants tonight will be futile.

So, I will just shut up and go on with the final review of the season.

American Idol 14: Top 12 Girls

It's the second day of Semifinals round for American Idol Season 14 as we now welcome the guys to the not-so-shiny-than-usual stage. I was hoping they prepared as the boys were, for the most part, solid, but after Shi Scott note-vomit all over the place, I was terrified. Sorry. It's been 24 hours and I'm still struggling to believe it happened. Haha.

Not sure if this installment was a great improvement from the voice, but there's a good amount of talented girls that took the stage and sang with confidence and swagger.

American Idol 14: Top 12 Boys

It's almost a tradition on American Idol, so I will just let it slide, but it's just good to reiterate that THE FIRST NIGHT OF THE LIVE ROUNDS IS NEVER GREAT! Haha.

It's some scary stuff for these contestants to sing in front of millions of people for the very first time and then worry about not advancing the next week. The pressure is there and at this stage, it's still pretty acceptable. True, there were a couple of performances from past seasons that were pretty awesome, but for the most part, the semifinals round is a place for contestants to do absolutely anything just to survive.

The frantic pace of the episode, on the other hand, was unacceptable. I don't know. The whole thing felt like the Idol version of speed dating. It was so fast - even the judges' comments - that I couldn't keep up. Oh, and Jennifer Lopez was actually giving a more focused critique, while Harry Connick Jr. was full of platitudes. Twilight zone, anyone?

Anyway, it's the first live rounds and while this wasn't the night I imagined - especially with the talent this season - I was fairly impressed with some of them.

The Voice 8: Blind Auditions Part 2

Wow. The struggle was real for Adam this season! I know. I know. It could've been just the show's edit, but why are they setting this up as if Adam's not getting so much love from the contestants this season? Were they thinking that this will be good story arc for Adam as he then ends up with the strongest team again like every season? Oh, and can I just say how sick I am with the 5 minute sob story this season. Quit it. This is a singing show not a humanitarian work. Please.

The Voice 8: Blind Auditions Part 1

Eighth season. That's right. In a matter of four years, The Voice US already aired eight seasons! While it's exhausting - I don't think I've moved on with Season 7's results yet - it's nice to see a different dynamics with Christina Aguilera in the mix and Pharrell.

I'm still waiting for a season with Usher, Pharrell, Christina and Shakira, thought that's less likely to happen as the show needs someone to represent the genre of Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. But, a man can dream. Haha. As for the premier episode, it's a solid one with a lot of singers from different genre.

The Voice Philippines 2: Top 8 Live Show (Semifinals)

Why do I feel incredibly exhausted with this season of The Voice Philippines? Was it the predictable song choices? The annoying decisions by the coaches throughout the season? The lack of creativity and originality in every single performances? I know. It's the idiotic format!

It's annoying how they let the public vote and then give the coaches the power to pick who they want to advance. It's stupid as that 10% difference between there scores are enough to trump the public vote. If they really want to let the public decide, then split it in half!

This is why I HATE the fact that at this round, the coaches still have so much CONTROL over who goes home. ENOUGH! This show just wasted people's votes (and money!). Such a shame!

87th Academy Awards: Predictions



I haven't been covering awards season as extensively as before - the last one was in 2011 - but I figured it would be appropriate, but foolishly try to predict the results of the upcoming Academy Awards.

Though there are a couple of safe bets this year, there are still a few wildcard and tricky categories. I've put on my prognosticating cap and compiled a list for major categories of who and what I think should and will win.

Let's get it on!
