Another update that I wanted to post here is Troye Sivan’s Bloom Tour in Asia! Yasss!!! You’ve read it right! Troye is coming to Asia and Manila is one of his destinations!!! I am so happy he didn’t wait too long to do a show here!
He will be performing at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 01, 2019 – ticket prices to be announced – and I’m so ready to buy my VIP ticket!!!!
You’ve probably seen Fergie’s viral rendition of the Star-spangled Banner during the NBA All-Star Game last Sunday where she infused the US national anthem with her very own and very Fergilicious style. Uh, no. I’m not going to discuss that at length. She already apologized (I sincerely don’t know why she had to) but anyway, I just want to pay homage to my girl Fergie by featuring one of her hit songs as a solo act with our Cover Thursday this week – Big Girls Don’t Cry!
This version is an acoustic one from Peter Carboni. He sang it real good. And he’s cute too! Hah!
This one’s here is one of the oldies but goodies songs of Taylor Swift back when she was still “the old Taylor Swift” and apparently, the dead one now. This is also probably one of my favorite songs of TayTay aside from Tim McGraw. I’ve been watching several covers this week and thought that it’d be interesting to hear a male cover version of it and I think I’ve just found the best one with Drew Jenkinson tweaking the song which I thought made it waaay better! And it was made a decade ago!!!!
This is by far my favorite cover of Troye Sivan’s new single “The Good Side” I loved the simplicity of Sneha’s voice as well as the intimacy of the use of the ukulele to accompany this heartbreaking song.
For my Cover Thursday this week, I’ll be featuring this medley by Andre van Drunen singing all of the song’s in Lorde’s latest release, Melodrama. It is also a way for me to honor said album because it only got a single Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. Seriously, what a travesty! I thought Lorde will be lording over the Grammy next year!
Listen to Andre’s awesome cover of the album and don’t forget to subscribe!!!

I’m still in shock. I just watched the rest of the performances tonight and I am still baffled why Alisah got the boot.
Louis said she picked the right song by singing Praying for Time saying it was indeed her time. Nicole said her voice was limitless. Simon on the other hand find it old fashion. Her coach Sharon said she connected with the song lyrically but she haven’t had her moment. Uhm, Sharon – that was her moment? Were you even listening Miss O?
Not hating on anyone but if this was really a singing contest, we all know that Alisah won’t be going home tonight. Alas, it’s a popularity singing contest at the end of the day so there’ll be no second chance, not another wildcard for Alisah.
It is the third week of the Live Shows and for the fifth live show, the Groups and the Overs categories battled it out with songs from the late great George Michael.
Rak-Su started the show with Faith. IMO, this was just an okay performance if not a bit pedestrian.
Nicole: She loved that they kept the integrity of the song.
Louis: Rak-Su make it look that easy
Sharon: Really enjoyed it. They Rak-Su’d it!
Simon: You made it your version. I think we are watching stars being born…
Kevin sang Fastlove, Pt. 1 and it’s record perfection! I mean, why is he in this contest? He should be touring the world already!!! He’s now my top act to win this season!
He go another standing ovation from all of the judges.
Simon thought it was Kevin’s MOMENT and the best performance of the night!
Louis love that Kevin’s into music and not in the fame game.
Sharon: Everything was perfect! (I agree with you there Ms. O)
Her mentor Nicole opined that it was the best performance he ever witnessed on the show! (Wow!)
Jack & Joel – Edge of Heaven
I thought it was fun. Not my favorite from them but it was fun!
Nicole: They sounded Whamazing!
Louis: You’re like a modern day Wham!
Sharon: They really suited the song.
Simon: Simon thought this was their best performance so far.
The Cutkelvins – Killer/Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone
Gosh! Their accents!!! They can easily go out there and release a record to be honest! I’m so glad they bounced back this week! Although I’m starting to hate the usual set-up they have production-wise.
They got a standing ovation from the judges.
Nicole thought they looked so great as a group together.
Louis said it was their best performance yet! (And I agree!)
Sharon said they slammed it!
Simon:Something clicked tonight for the group.
Sean and Conor Price – Freedom! ’90”
I absolutely loved these two! I don’t know if they’re still in my top 3 but I do know that they will go far after the show.
Another standing ovation from the judges.
Nicole: Conor reminds her of Justin Bieber.
Louis: They are Real!
Sharon loves their enthusiasm.
Simon: They’re very infectious with no gimmicks! Ask viewers to vote for them.
Matt Linnen sang Careless Whisper and what a song choice! OMFG! He’s so cute with his robotic movements yeah? He kind of reminds me of David Cook here. And girls, he is a DADDY!!!! Didn’t know this info until this week!
Only Simon and Nicole stood up for him.
Sharon: You did really well tonight but still feels his insecurity
Louis said it was his best vocals to date.
Simon: By far his best performance.
Nicole said she could tell how much this means to Matt and that he was singing for his boys.
The act who got the boot is/are…
And the obvious Champion of the night with the most public votes is Kevin Davy White!!!
Kevin Davy White singing a Santana song is perfection to the hilt. Seriously, this guy is way ahead of his competitors. He is very likable, has a great image and sings like a proper popstar! If he continue this way, he’s on the right track of winning it all.
Admittedly, this isn’t Matt Linnen’s best performance but it was much better than most of the contestants tonight. And he’s fucking beautiful. Again, he is still my top act to win it all even though Kevin totally outperformed him.
Rai-Elle Williams’ Bailando’s performance is fun to watch and Rai-Elle has so much to offer but I still find her a bit too young and perhaps, her voice not that mature yet. For now, she’s got 2/10 chances of winning this show.
I’ve to agree with Simon on this one. This isn’t Grace as an artist. I know her purpose is to show her versatility as a performer but she’s looks uncomfortable af on that stage. I wished she sang another original. This is her worst performance to date in my opinion.
Holly Tandy’s performance is just cringe-worthy. She butchered the song into oblivion, it’s a good thing she looked so damn pretty while singing it!
This for me is Alisah’s best performance to date because she’s good at belting notes and this showcased her versatility. Unlike Grace, Alisah’s personality suited this transition much better. I still think that she’s got work to do about her diction and pronunciation but homegirl’s determination is there so I’m expecting her to go far in the competition.
Traceyleanne Jefford is one of my favorites this season so I was really sad to see her leave. I thought Rai-Elle should’ve gone home instead but it’s obvious that the public doesn’t really care much for her since she was also at the bottom two last week.
