Well here it is, the American Idol Season 8 winner. I created this topic to congratulate this seasons winner; Kris Allen. This post includes all his songs starting from Top 13, which are also the studio versions.
Kris Allen was from Conway, Arkansas and auditioned for the American Idol Season 8 at Louisville, Kentucky. He went to Hollywood and made his way up through the Top 13. Kris is talented while performing he used to hold musical instruments such as an acoustic guitar, piano and keyboard. He performed songs which he got good compliments from judges that he would make it to the top. But still a time will come when your performance will not be as good (or as bad) as the last one. He impressed the judges with his version of “She Worked Hard For The Money” on disco week, again with his version of “Heartless”. It was a battle for the finals when both Kris Allen and Adam Lambert battled it out. Kris had a hard time singing the coronation song “No Boundaries” but still it was a close battle between the two finalist. In the end gaining the most votes from all around America, Kris Allen came out as the winner. He was shocked to hear it and he said that Adam Lambert deserves it more, he was still being the humble type until the end.
Off to his songs starting from Top 13. Songs provided are Studio Versions except for the Finale.
I have been browsing the web and I found this interesting video clip. Its from Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. The video contains our hero Sam Witwicky (Shia Labeouf) with Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox), talking to Bumblebee. A sneek peek to the upcoming and one of my most awaited movies of the year. And one more thing Megan Fox changes her clothes here.
If you were a follower of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood here in my blog, you may have noticed that I ended up only to summarize on episode 6 and till now there is already an episode 8.
I am dropping or should I say discontinuing on summarizing this beautiful anime starting now because of time allocation (busy busy). But still I am watching the anime being released every Sunday nights.
Sorry for those who are folowing my summaries (if ever there are..lol).
I have been a fan of MMA for quite sometime now and for the first time I am posting something about the sport. UFC is a sport where fighters really show how good they are. It looks like a street fight with rules to obey but still a mixed fighter can come out victorious unpredictably.
For the main topic, UFC 98 has just been aired and what a spectacular event it really was. The main event portion was a battle between two undefeated octagon fighters “Sugar” Rashad Evans (18-0-1) versus Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida (14-0). This bout is also for the UFC Light Heavyweight Title.
Here they are as promised, the live performances from the American Idol Finale. Almost everything is here except for David Cook’s song “Permanent” and the awardees performances (Nick Mitchell, Katrina Darell and Tatiana Del Toro) are not included.
I liked Kris Allen’s performance with Keith Urban here with the song “Kiss the Girls” as well as Danny Gokey and Lionel Richie’s duet. And for Jason Mraz, who came out performing with bare feet, that was weird. Oldies also came crunching the stage, Rod Stewart who almost tripped while walking to the microphone stand. Kiss as usual wearing their make up and Gene Simmons still has his Bass “Axe” Guitar, and a performance with all the fireworks. Lastly Queen even though without Freddie Mercury still rocked the stage with their song We Are the Champions along with Adam Lambert and Kris Allen.
UPDATED: Links are now back to mediafire enjoy them as you like them. I have also added a studio version of Adam Lambert’s No Boundaries.
Well it comes to the week where the American Idol Season 8 has been crowned. From thousands who audited to just two battling for the number spot and gain the title.
This finale is a duel between Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. Danny Gokey was eliminated last week by the voters and let Kris Allen pass through. Even though we all know that he had many negative comments from the judges. But this is a democratic competition, where voters actually pick their man, just like voting for a president.
On performance night the Idols had to sing 3 types of song, one song which was picked by the director himself, Simon Fuller and one for what they had performed through out the competition and songs picked by Kara DioGuardi. Round by round the two contestants had to battle, at first Kris won the judges comments while in the second round Adam takes it. Some of the most negative comments came from Simon Cowell which he said to Kris that it was a big mistake from America for voting him and still being in the competition (ouch!).
My most awaited which still comes out in June 2, 2009 is roaming around torrent sites. Its weird just two weeks away and I see this game already crawling out into the pirate streets. I don’t know if what’s leaking outside is a complete game or has fixes to be done. Pirates are getting good these days. I remember one of my post which was on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where it was just still a workprint and unfinished product when it came crashing out torrent sites.
Anyway I liked the Sims series its a virtual game which you can play forever, no ending, you can make your own virtual life story. I have read many articles about the game that it has many changes from the last Sims games.
The Sims 3 has new features, creating your Sims with lots of different personalities and traits. You can even set for long and short term careers for your Sims plus the usual create your Sim-Your-Style, customize your Sim to anything you want to. The big difference of the game from its predecessor is the exploration of your neighborhood which is an open environment. Visiting neighbors going out to the park is just a jog away.
