Nouvelle Star Season 7






I couldn't find any videos for this season (again), well actually I couldn't embed any. So I had paste the videos under each contestant. You can watch them by clicking on the small video tape. My favourite 3 are: Camélia-Jordana, she has such an unique voice!, it remembers me of Megan Joy's one, you know, with a quite exotic sound; Dalé, he sounds like the french Seal, very good voice; and Lary, despite his funny aspect, I like him a lot, his cover of James Morrison's "You give me Somthing" was great.

The song was released digitally on November 22, 2009 where it broke records as the fastest selling Sony Music download ever. A music video was filmed on November 24, 2009. Walker made comment stating “There might be a little bit of group dancing… we’ll see what happens. At first I was really nervous but I’ve warmed up now and I’m getting into it. I’m working on my look” [...] “It’s pretty cool – it’s my first ever film clip. It’s basically a house party that explains the lyrics. It talks about a relationship that has gone down but everything is still recorded in the black box. I really like it."

Eesti otsib superstaari Season 3






I couldn't find a single biography of the contestants, so I didn't post any. My top 3: Birgit, Anne, Kene. AMAZING singers and performers. Anne is the best singer, Kene the best performer and Birgit is a combination of both. My favourite of the three is definitely Kene, she is so unique and I found her voice very rare, being eliminated so early didn't give her the chance to show her amazing potential.

Billy Joel, her father, assured the public that his daughter Alexa Ray Joel "is going to be fine," speaking to a Newsday reporter. Alexa Ray, the only child of Joel and his ex-wife Christie Brinkley, was admitted to St. Vincent's Medical Center in New York after swallowing unidentified pills and complaining of difficulty breathing. She has since been released from the hospital and is staying with her father at an undisclosed location, her publicist told the AP on Monday.
A family friend attributed Alexa Ray's troubles to a "rough breakup with a boyfriend" (James "Jimmy Riot" Elliot).

Adam Lambert's AMAs scandal

Adam shocked TV audiences on Sunday's American Music Awards during his performance of 'For Your Entertainment' when he kissed a male keyboard player and shoved another dancer's face into his crotch.
Lambert won't apologize for his shock ing performance on ABC Sunday night and says he's being singled out because he's gay. 'I admit I did get carried away, but I don't see anything wrong with it', he said yesterday on CBS' 'The Early Show'. 'I'm not a babysitter. I'm a performer . . . I think it's because I'm a gay male'.
ABC, which received over 1,500 complaints, canceled Lambert's scheduled appearance on 'Good Morning America'. 'I do see how people got offended and that was not my intention. My intention was to interpret the lyrics of my song and have a good time with it. If it had been a female pop performer doing [those] moves that were on the stage, I don't think there would be nearly as much of an outrage' he said.

Robbie Williams proposes to his girlfriend

Robbie Williams has proposed to his girlfriend, the pop star's mother Jan has confirmed. Williams asked actress Ayda Field to be his 'betrothed for the end of time' on an Australian radio show, but it was initially perceived to be a joke. However, Jan Williams told BBC Radio 5 live that her son had revealed his proposal plans to her a week ago.
However, it is still not clear whether the radio proposal was for real - or whether Williams had popped the question beforehand. Williams was appearing on the Australian radio station 2Day FM, when breakfast show host Jackie Henderson told him that Sydney had a reputation for celebrity proposals. Turning to his girlfriend, the 35-year-old said: 'Ayda Field, I love you so much. Do you mind being my betrothed for the end of time?'. Field, who was in the studio at the time, laughed before saying: "I would love to be your betrothed 'til the end of time."

YT/MS Featured Artist: Becca de la Musique

Rebecca Cole is 19 year old english singer-songwriter who is currently unsigned and attending Warwick University where she has a band, 'Such Modern Ways'. Her appearance reminds me of Hayley Williams, but she insist her hair looks more like Florence Welch's one. Becca has a YouTube account, loveuloveb, where she covers different songs, and a MySpace account, beccadelamusique, where she uploads original songs. Her influences are Patrick Wolf, Florence + the Machine, Bjork and Paramore. She is an acoustic singer and is often seen playing the guitar in her videos, she can also speak in french. Becca's soulful and deep voice blends perfectly with her guitar playing and makes her singing very relaxing. Her original songs 'Overdue'(video below) and 'We Belong' (in her MySpace site) are great examples of how good she is. I hope that you can see her greatness through this YouTube videos.

Brick By Boring Brick Video Premiere


'Brick by Boring Brick' is the second single from Paramore's third album Brand New Eyes.The music video was filmed in Los Angeles on October 8, 2009 and directed by Meiert Avis. In an interview with MTV, bassist Jeremy Davis explained that the band had created a treatment for the video before receiving further ideas from several directors. The video is Paramore's first to not be performance based and some of the members of the band are only seen for a short period of time. It is also their first video to be filmed in front of green screen, and to have 'a whole story behind it', with acting. Guitarist Josh Farro likened the video to the 2006 Spanish fantasy film Pan's Labyrinth. It was originally set to premiere on November 17 on The Hills, but was later postponed. The video was eventually released on Paramore.net on November 23.

Aerosmith members are worried for Tyler's health

Even as they contemplate working with another singer, Steven Tyler's Aerosmith bandmates say they're worried about their frontman's health and well being. Joey Kramer told: 'Steven, he isolates more and more all the time -- that's what gives it away to me that there's something going on. I don't know what that is. I know he's made some not so great choices and he's got some negative influences around him now. I love the guy. I just want to see him get some help'. The group does seem resolved in its decision to look for another singer to work with. Whitford predicts that while 'no one can fill Steven Tyler's shoes', the selection process will come down to 'people that we know or are friends that we think might consider doing it'. He's also not ruling out a reconciliation with Tyler. 'We would love to see that happen. I hear all the fans and everybody, but no group of guys would like him back more than we would. We would never shut the door -- there might be a sign on that door that has a list of qualifications, but we would never shut the door'.

Gucci Mane sentenced to 12 months in jail

Rapper Gucci Mane was sentenced to 12 months in jail on November 12 for probation violation. Mane pled guilty to assault in 2005 for attacking a nightclub promoter. Last September, he was sentenced to a year in jail for failing to fulfill his court-ordered 600 hours of community service. He was incarcerated until March. After his release, Mane recorded five new songs. The Atlanta rapper has an album coming out December 8th, entitled "The State vs. Radric Davis," on Asylum/Warner Brothers. It seems that rappers are misbehaving in the last few weeks as two other rappers, Lil Wayne and Lil' Boosie, were sentenced to jail.

However if the votation result to keep downloads is 50 or higher, I'll continue uploding, if not, goodbye downloads, and back to my humble beginings with only news and recommendations. So vote and help me make the decision. Think it seriously!!!

She said in an interview that 'the song is basically about how I can't get any — I can't find anyone to love. I really wanted to make something that's completely different from anything that's on the radio right now. I feel like it's really dancy and fun, but it's still laid back and relaxed and moody and sexy'.

Featured Artist: Diana Vickers


Diana Vickers (born 30 July, 1991) is a British singer-songwriter and actress, best known for appearing on The X Factor in 2008. Her performances were often unconventional, attracting both praise and criticism. As a result, judge Simon Cowell likened her to Marmite, saying that fans could either love or hate her singing. Diana always performed shoeless because she said she was afraid of falling on stage and there was also a lot of hand movement. She courted further controversy when she was unable to perform during week 5 of the contest due to illness. She reached week 9 of the contest, achieving fourth place. Originally announced that Vickers would be signed up by Sony BMG under the Syco label, this plan was later dropped. Vickers has since been signed to the RCA label. Her debut single is expected to be released in February 2010 with the debut album being released in March 2010. A promotional single was offered for download on her official site, 'Jumping into Rivers'. Vickers made her professional acting debut in the title role of a new West End production of Jim Cartwright's The Rise and Fall of Little Voice on 8 October 2009. Diana plays the shy and lonely Little Voice, who hides an astonishing talent as an impersonator of singers such as Shirley Bassey. She has an amazing and unique voice, I've never heard something similar in my life. It's worth spending some time hearing her.

In conclusion the only thing I won't be uploding are entire CDs, so it's not the end of the world. Again, sorry.

Strict Joy - The Swell Season


You may probably know them as the struggling musicians in 2007 film Once and maybe for their amazing 'Falling Slowly'. They are known as The Swell Season (Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová). This is their third album, 'Strict Joy'. It will be released on October 23 in Ireland. Hansard said about the new album: 'For me, it's just an audio diary. It's just another installment of the life we lead'. The first single 'In these Arms' was released on August 18 via iTunes. Their style would classify as folk though they have this kind of powerful pop-rock voice. Glen's and Markéta's voice blends into a relaxing and I'll dear to say orgasmic album, which is definitely a must-have.

Lil Wayne to recive a one-year jail sentence

The rapper Lil Wayne has pleaded guilty to attempted weapon possession, and expects to receive a one-year jail sentence. He previously had pleaded not guilty to illegal gun possession charges that carried at least three and a half years in prison upon conviction. The gun was found by police in the tour bus while in Manhattan in 2007. His trial was due to start January 20. Wayne is prison-bound after taking a surprise and docile gun possession guilty plea this morning in return for a promise of one year behind bars. He'll be spending most of 2010 in an upstate cage. Celebrity defense lawyer Stacey Richman has repeatedly complained that the gun actually belonged to another, uncharged associate of the rapper who was on the bus and was willing to accept responsibilty for it. A tiny handful of cells (from two to 16)were swabbed off the grip and trigger and matched to Lil Wayne's own genetic profile. Lil is due back in court for a pre-sentencing proceeding on December 15, at which time a precise February sentencing date will be set by the judge.

Be quiet, Kanye West isn't dead

An internet hoax that first surfaced on October 20 has spun into a massive frenzy of web rumors on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. The prank was a set up of a Fox News Web page headlining West's death in 'a bizarre car crash in Los Angeles'. The fraudulent web site that churned out the news of West's faux-death has been taken down. Kanye's girlfriend, Amer Rose, use her Twitter account to say: 'This 'RIP Kanye West' topic is not funny and it's NOT TRUE!, he has people like myself and his family that love him very much...'.

American Idol 8 First singles

Live Like We're Dying - Kris Allen


The winner's debut and lead single of his upcoming album. It was released on iTunes on September 25 and it will be fisicaly on November 17. So far it has peaked the 89 position on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is a cover from The Script's one but it's better. We all expected a soft ballad from Kris but this potential pop rock hit took us by surprise. Kris album will be definitely great.



Time for Miracles - Adam Lambert



Surprisingly finishing as the runner-up, this is his first release since Idol's 'No Boundries'. It was released on October 16 via Amazon. The song will act as the soundtrack of the upcoming film 2012. Although it is a huge song, Adam confirmed it won't be the lead single of his album. As all apocaliptical soundtracks, this song has very strong vocals and it makes us feel how the people are feeling. The suffering in Adam's voice succeeds in conveying the suffering from the movie. I can't wait to have his album!!



Friday I'll be Over You - Allison Iraheta



It's the first single from her debut album, Just Like You. It was written and produced by Swedish songwriter Max Martin. The single was released to radio stations on Monday, October 5 and will be officially released through digital distribution on November 3. As she make it clear on the show, this song is a pop rock song, it makes us remember Kelly Clarkson but with a much deeper voice. With this song we get to see what the album will be all about.

What happens with Residente?


The Puerto Rican singer René Pérez, who calls himself Residente, member of the duo of half brothers Calle 13 has offended various Latin American countries presidents during the Los Premios MTV Latinoamérica, held in Los Angeles. The most offending thing was that Residente wore a t-shirt which said 'Uribe paramilitar' and 'Bases'/Military bases , claiming that Uribe is part of the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, commonly refered to as the guerrillas.
The colombian foreign minister said after the show: 'El mensaje presenta un contenido ofensivo y calumnioso en contra del presidente de los colombianos, lo cual constituye un agravio para su buen nombre e investidura y además es un irrespeto a la dignidad de nuestros connacionales'/The message presents an offensive and difamating content against the colombian president, which is an offense to his good name and it is also a disrespect to the dignity of our compatriots.
During the show he also attacked other presidents such as argentinian president Cristina Fernández Kirchner, who was said by Residente to leave botox, and also against venezuelan president Hugo Chavez who was nominated by his t-shirt as 'Chavez nominado a mejor artista Pop'/Chavez Nominated as Best Pop artist.

Trying not to exclude anyone he finally attacked his own president Luis Fortuño, who was that same day fighting against a strike against mass layoffs, saying this: 'Hoy los puertorriqueños marcharon contra el desempleo, porque el Gobernador de Puerto Rico los dejó sin trabajo y el gobernador de Puerto Rico es un hijo de la gran puta'/Today the Puerto Ricans march against unemployment, because the president of Puerto Rico leave them without job and the president of Puerto Rico is a son of a bitch.
Fortuño answered 'Este individuo le faltó el respeto a todas las mujeres puertorriqueñas, a todas las madres puertorriqueñas y al pueblo puertorriqueño en general'/This person disrespected all the Puerto Rican women, all the Puerto Rican mothers and the Puerto Rican people in general. The concert scheduled to be held in that city was canceled by obvious reasons.

Beyonce Delays Malaysia Concert

Beyonce has postponed a planned concert in Malaysia, the event's organizer said on October 19, following accusations by Islamic conservatives that the show would be immoral as she is worldwide known for her provocative clothes and choreography. She was scheduled to perform at a Kuala Lumpur stadium October 25. The show 'has been postponed to a future date to be announced shortly', Malaysian entertainment company Marctensia said in a statement. A Marctensia representative declined to say whether the decision was prompted by criticism from the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, the country's largest opposition group, which has called for the show to be scrapped because it would promote 'Western sexy performances'. Beyonce had previously canceled a concert in Malaysia in 2007.

Face Drop (Remix) - Sean Kingston





Face Drop is the second single from his second studio album Tomorrow, it was released to radio stations on August 18, 2009 and released digitally on iTunes on September 1, 2009. This remix features Pleasure P. I have had this song stuck in my head since I first heard it, so I wanted to post it. Although I can't stand him repeating his name throughout the song, it's a good example of reggae fusion, with well written lyrics. Not a five stars but maybe a four and a half.
