The Xfactor- Episode 1 and 2

Published

on


Day 2 of Xfactor is over and there have been some exceptionally talented people, some born diva’s and a whole lot of laughs. I will be the first one to admit that ever since season 1 of American Idol ended, I have not indulged in any type of singing or dance competition reality show,  so the only reason I am watching this season is because of my love for Britney Spears.

Props must be given to everyone who had the courage to perform and audition in front of these four prestigious judges. Simon does not mess around and he is not easily impressed. I don’t think he ever gave a standing ovation for anyone. Anyone except 13-year-old Carly, who bless her old soul, sang like a goddess sent from the angels above. Even if she doesn’t get to the finale, fame is hers. As LA said, today a star was born. Remember this day.

Flamboyantly awesome and sparkly personalities always leave a lasting impression. Especially those people that live in an alternate reality and fantasize about the production of their next show. Well the minute that guy opened his mouth to sing ‘New York State of Mind’ by Billy Joel, that was it. We were sold and we were all at his concert. Crackle, pop, fireworks and glitter galore!

Its extremely touching to see young mothers follow their dreams despite the obstacles they may face. The young woman that auditioned on Wednesday’s episode was mind blowing (and I do apologize for not knowing names, I’m sure we will get acquainted further on down the line when it actually matters.) L. A Reid laid it on the money when he said that she reminded him of a young girl that just a couple of years ago walked into his office. She had the spunk and the feel of Rihanna, only with much better pipes and many hardships and life experiences to back up her talent.

Also amazingly impressive from last night’s episode was Emblem3, which remind me of an edgier and less boybandish One Direction.  The best thing to watch though is the over confident, attitudey, annoyingly stuck up people, with ego’s bigger than Kim Kardashian’s booty, try to put down the competition and give them horrible advice.  Literally you just want to see these people fail. For example, the girl that was country blonde and sounded like she was dying when she sang, the English backstreet boy that went on millions of tours in the U.K with his boy band once upon a time but no one ever heard of him, and the actress, singer, dancer with her cleavage exposed that sang on one monotone tune. Its like the judges take a needle and pop this water balloon and it splashes all over them and extinugishes their pride, leaving them slightly confused and shocked. While they are in that state of confusion  the people they were tyring to discourage and put down get 4 yes’s. Take that bullies!

Speaking of bullies. The moment when that girl with the raspy voice came out and connected on a depressing and personal level with Demi Lovato was a changing point in the show. It showed courage and strength and brought tears to my eyes. I hope you bullies are watching because like Demi said, those people are probably fat and sitting at home watching while these girls are on stage stronger and better than ever. Once you can sing flawlessly with tears pouring down your eyes, thats talent. That’s when you know you’ve made it. There is no one that can take that away from you. There is something so authentic and honest about pain that just flows out of some people through music and art, and it is beautiful.

Now the judges. Honestly this is the best group of judges in the world. Simon, who is a god dang brilliant business man, did wonders to revive this show. Why? One word: Britney Spears. If there is anyone that knows anything about the celebrity industry, its her. Also in the mix is L.A Reid, who literally knows everything about the music industry. Demi Lovato also brings a fresh and young perspective to those that could possibly have forgotten what is actually good and what is bad music. Its really fascinating to see Mrs. Britney Spears in the raw; real, happy, critical, truthful, honest and just Britney, the one we know and love. Aside from those obsessively compulsive fans, her judging seems to be on point and knowledgable. And did you see those previews where she sings happy birthday?? Homegirl has gotten it all back!!! Finally. This honestly might be the most entertaining season of Xfactor to date!

Just a special treat for all you Glee fans. I really do not like Glee, but flipping through channels I stumbled upon Kate Hudson’s rendition of “American” and “Dance and Love.” I’m obsessed. Its got amazing vocals and wonderful, sexy dancing. Yum. Let me also take this time to remind you that there will be a Britney focused episode sometime this season. Yes, a second one! Go Glee!!

The Bold Type Lost Review

Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet. 

The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!

Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26! 

Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”

Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers. 

The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger is ready to turn the final page!

Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends. 

The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale

But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes. 

News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.

However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon. 

Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!

And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”

Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial. 

And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her. 

Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!

New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns. 

Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.

And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”

But at the end of the day, the show hones in on the fact that it’s about female friendship and empowerment.
 
“We’re women, we’re fighters, this is our moment, Liza,” Kelsey informs her. 
 
And if the original premise got muddled somewhere in all the love triangles, the trailer reminds you that the series was born to defy ageism in the workplace and in life in general.
 
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that age is irrelevant,” Liza tells Kelsey.
 
That’s been the lesson since day one! 
 
From the looks of it, the 12-episode final season is going to be one wild ride as it wraps up all the storylines once and for all. 
 
 
Younger will air all episodes on Paramount+ before dropping them on TV Land at a later date. 
 
The final season will premiere the first four episodes on April 15.

Younger Stiff Competition Review

It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical! 

Paramount Plus announced that the seventh and final season of Younger will premiere on Thursday, April 15!

The first four episodes will be available for streaming on that day. 

The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday. 

Those who don’t have access to Paramount Plus will be able to see the full season later in the year on TV Land. 

It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars. 

Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.

“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet. 

“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”

Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, we know these two will go the extra mile with whatever screentime they do have! 
 
Per the release, the final season of Younger finds “Liza’s (Sutton Foster) personal life is on shaky ground as she tries to stay true to herself. After a setback at work, Kelsey (Hilary Duff) doubts her career decisions and discovers a new creative outlet. Meanwhile, Maggie (Debi Mazar) gets canceled.”
