My Life Would Suck Without You

Kelly Clarkson won the first season of American Idol in 2002. The piece she sang on the Finale, A Moment Like This, became one of the songs on her first album Thankful which was released in 2003.

The album Breakaway followed in 2004 revealed the rock-oriented image of Kelly. She worked with Avril Lavigne on this album who actually co-write the title track.

Her third album My December which was released on 2007, showcased the songs she composed. Errr, I'm not too familiar with the songs, though.

This year presents All I Ever Wanted carrying her single which I really love and have been singing repeatedly lately! It's entitled My Life Would Suck Without You. The video below is an acoustic version.

It is incredible to think of all the work that goes on behind the scenes and all the people that support these talented singers. Lots of hours at sound engineering schools and many degrees from music production colleges.

Sigh! I just miss the feeling of being in love, I guess! Lol! Enjoy the Music Monday!!!

Adam Vs. Kris in American Idol Finale

The judges and Kris Allen himself were surprised when Ryan Seacrest announced that Kris was the first finalist for American Idol Season 8 Finale. With 1 million votes separating Kris and Adam, it's pretty obvious that Kris is the favorite of most viewers! The result make me think twice about Adam Lambert ending up being the next Idol! No offense to Kris Allen's fans but Adam basically has the "idol" quality. But still, it's America's votes that will surely reign! I still agree that both of them deserve to be on the finals!

Much to Gokey's family's and Paula Abdul's disappointment (since she has been rooting for Danny Gokey to be on the finals from the start) her favorite got the lowest vote this week. Danny did his final song which is really heartwarming - You Are So Beautiful. Believe me! I had goosebumps when listening to him sing it! He made me teary eyed with his beautiful rendition of the song. Well, it's not going to be the end for him though. With his talents, there's going to be a lot of doors open for him!

The long wait is about to be over! Season finale is going to happen next week!!! Goodluck to Kris and Adam!

Iraheta Bid Goodbye to American Idol

The 17-year-old high school student from Los Angeles, Allison Iraheta, got eliminated in Idol this week. She received the lowest number of votes after her performance on Janis Joplin's "Cry Baby" on this week's Rock Week. Ironically, after the announcement, she has all the reason to be a "cry baby". I wonder why Danny still got more number of votes even though he made a total mess on the last note of the song "Dream On". It was really funny!!! Lol!

Well, we have all three men left in the competition namely Danny Gokey, Kris Allen and Adam Lambert!They are going to visit their respective hometowns next week. Phew! I'm so excited for the big night! I will definitely get tuned in on Idol come May 20!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

After our tedious work yesterday, my colleague, Julia and I went to see the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We decided to have some fun together since it's our off today.

I have been a fan of X-Men even when I was a kid. I used to watch it with my brothers when we were in grade school.

The movie is actually a prequel to the X-men movie trilogy (which by the way I love!). It focuses on Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) character- basically his violent past and his involvement with the Team X which was organized by Colonel Stryker (Danny Houston). It also showed how wolverine become indestructible after he was swayed to have his skeleton change to metal adamantium. It was in the movie I learned about his half brother - Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) who turned out to be one of the enemies of the X-men - Sabertooth.

If I am to rate the movie from 1-10, I'd say it's a 7. Well, honestly, I wasn't really wowed by the movie. It's not the same as what I have read about Wolverine's character in Marvel Universe. I expected that anyways. Movies that are based on books basically don't end up the same as what it is originally in the book. The director have to edit some scenes to make it more appealing to the big screen.

I enjoyed watching Hugh Jackman's sexy bod though! Lol! He did a great job with his role as Wolverine, as always!

Idol Finally Bid Goodbye to Matt

Can you believe it??? Adam Lambert at the bottom three last night? It made Kara's mouth left open in shock! Lol! Hmmm... It looks like most Americans weren't in awe of Adam's talent that much based on the results.

Anyways, Idol finally bid goodbye to the Timberlake-look-alike, Matt Giraud. After being saved by the judges Matt definitely had a great time on his extended stay in the Idol! He was actually the luckiest contestant so to speak. Even though Simon was all praises for him after his rendition of "My Funny Valentine" on Rat Pack night, he was still eliminated.

Well, what do we expect? Someone definitely has to be a cast away from the show each week. There should only be one American Idol! With the twist of fate that happened this week, it make me think twice about who will be the next Idol this year!
