DAM NATION: April 2014 Playlist

Again, there's way too many songs, but so little spot! Haha. This month, we have a pretty diverse song selection and that somehow makes this playlist more interesting. I hope you'll enjoy most of them. So yes, here's another list of 15 songs that I (personally) fancy, that are already doing good on it's own and maybe some new singles from different artists that will probably - or maybe not - be hits in the next coming weeks in whatever format.


1 Summer Calvin Harris
2 Latch Disclosure (ft. Sam Smith)
3 Burning Gold Christina Perri
4 Blue Eyed Lie Jessica Meuse
5 Vertigo Jason Derulo (ft. Jordin Sparks)
6 Ain't It Fun Paramore
7 G.U.Y Lady Gaga
8 Beating Heart Ellie Goulding
9 Midnight Memories One Direction
10 Fairytales Alex Preston
11 Stay With Me Sam Smith
12 On Top Of The World Imagine Dragons
13 Medicine Shakira (ft. Blake Shelton)
14 Sirens Cher Lloyd
15 Sing Ed Sheeran

American Idol 13: Top 7 Results Show

Dexter Roberts. Well, this wasn’t much of a surprise. Dexter has been turning in mediocre performances from the beginning of the competition with only a precious few standouts and he should be extremely proud for ending as this season's 7th place finisher. He should have tried a little harder to lock up the country vote, but he never seemed to truly do so. There is a possibility that he could be a marketable artist after a lot of work, but right now, he’ll have to settle on a national tour and the money that goes along with it. 

As for Jessica, I just couldn't help myself but root for her. The judges are being hard on her "performing" when they don't even ask Alex to move around. Why can't they get the same "artist" edit? It's a bit frustrating to see them bus Jessica when she's clearly better than CJ. Ugh. She needs to nail her performances next week or she could be in some serious trouble.

Results after the jump!

American Idol 13: Top 7

This week is very important because it marks the halfway point of the Finals. It’s time for these contestants to take it to another level and prove to us that they have what it takes to win. I fully expect to see that next week, because tonight was a wake-up call for them especially after Malay Watson left last week despite the massive improvement she showcased the past few weeks.

I thought the performances were REALLY good and that adds up to this rollercoaster of a season. Other than that insight and the fact that they showed countless of Jennifer Lopez close ups the entire episode, I have nothing more to add. As always, I placed the contestants accordingly, and while the night seemed fairly easy to rank the elimination is once again slightly unpredictable.

On to the rankings!

The Voice 6: Playoffs #TeamUsher

I initially thought Usher had the best team coming into the Playoffs, but now that he's down to his Final 3, I genuinely think that Shakira and Blake somehow managed to build stronger teams coming into the Live Rounds. But again, what do I know. Again, let's see how things will pan out come next week.

On with the performances!

The Voice 6: Playoffs #TeamAdam

I'm baffled. Adam usually gets the best singers every season - until he screws them up with his song choices and mentoring - but somehow, that's not happening this season. Sure, he still one of the most hyped contestants with Christina Grimmie, but she's just exactly that, pure hype. Let's see how things will pan out after the Playoffs.

On to the performances!

The Voice 6: Playoffs #TeamShakira

Coming into the Playoffs, I figured that Shakira had the weakest team and she clearly sabotaged herself when she slowly eliminated the more interesting artists in her group, but somehow there's actually a method to her madness no? Yes, Team Shakira ended up being better than I thought. Who knew?

On with the performances!

American Idol 13: Top 8 Redux Results Show

Malaya Watson. I think Malaya deserved to stay at the very least two more weeks, and still can’t, for the life of me, understand what people see in CJ Harris. He’s a great man, but he just can't sing in tune. Oh well. Malaya just lost this week. The moment she sang Chaka Khan's Through The Fire the countdown clock began and her days were numbered. It wasn't bad, but I didn't think it was accessible enough to trump the anomaly that is CJ Harris, who's already in the Final 7 without even singing a single song in tune. It's a bit frustrating because she's getting her groove back and she's undeniably the most improved since Runaway Baby. Sigh. I’m really going to miss Malaya's character and spirit.

Also, why did they announce just the Bottom 2? Could Sam Woolf be the third person and since they want to justify the save, they magically made it to just two people? Interesting.
