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!!

‘Riverdale’ Musical Episode Delayed, CW Issues Schedule Change with #Crossover Reruns

Published

Riverdale Postpones Hedwig Musical Episode

Coronavirus is effecting the upcoming schedule on The CW.

And Riverdale fans might not be pleased because the musical episode has been postponed as the series goes on an indefinite hiatus.

The teen drama has been on a break since March 11 and was set to return with a musical episode focusing on Hedwig and the Angry Inch on April 8.

Unfortunately, that’s not happening.

A schedule update for the first week of April (April 6th) reveals that the network will air a re-rerun of its DC’s crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” instead of the episode “Wicked Little Town.”

No Worries, KJ Apa Will Star As Archie on ‘Riverdale’ For At Least 3 More Years

The 5-part crossover which brought together The CW’s biggest superheroes into one 5-hours episode in 2019 and the beginning of 2020 is filling a few voids in the schedule including Sunday’s time-block of Supergirl and Batwoman. It’s also stepping in to fill Thursday’s timeslot, which usually went to Legacies. The series is set to air a premature season finale on March 26 after production shuttered due to the outbreak and they couldn’t finish filming the season.

Sadly, and I know this isn’t what anyone wants to hear, The CW did not reveal when Riverdale would return for new episodes.

And if I’m being honest (again not what you want to hear), the series stopped on an episode that could very well serve as the season 4 finale. “Rumors of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated” explained everything about Jughead’s mysterious death sufficiently.

While fans were looking forward to the annual musical episode, it can very well be saved till the next season if worse comes to worse.

Riverdale was forced to shutter production this season after a member of the crew tested positive for coronavirus. All shows followed suit shortly after.

Roswell, New Mexico, Nancy Drew, Charmed, and Dynasty will all air new episodes next week!

Check out the CW’s new revised schedule and keep your eyes peeled for updates as many networks will be making changes !

Sunday, April 5
8 pm Batwoman (rerun)
9 pm Supergirl (rerun)

Monday, April 6

Are ‘The Bachelor’s’ Peter Weber and Kelley Dating? They Were Spotted Cozying Up in Chicago

Published

The Bachelor's Peter Weber and Kelley Dating

Clearly, Peter Weber did not get the memo about social distancing.

Peter’s season of The Bachelor may be over — and spoiler: he didn’t end up with any of the women — but he seems to have found love with one of the contestants he sent home, Kelley Flanagan.

The pilot and the lawyer were seen cozying up in her hometown of Chicago on Wednesday afternoon.

The duo was spotted hitting the riverwalk and cuddling up. At one point, Peter even picked Kelley up over his head, which isn’t surprising because all the girls loved to jump on Peter when they greeted him this season.

TMZ reports that Peter was very handsy with Kelley.

All of this might have been cuter if not for the fact that Chicago is currently under a “stay at home” order to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The whole idea is that people are supposed to be staying at home and not congregating in public meeting spaces like parks, riverwalks, beaches, etc. Chicagoans have been ignoring the government order, which is enforced by law, so the Mayor was forced to impose fines of $500 smackaroos for anyone caught purposefully breaking the rule. She also said she would shut down parks and the entire lakefront. 

If Kelley is giving Peter a second chance, if they’re soulmates, if they’ve figured it all out, it’s all great, just please stay indoors and stay away from other people!

I’m sure they can find something productive to do.

And if you gotta walk the pooch, make your walk quick and 6-feet away from other people.

Best and funniest tweets and memes about Tiger King

If you haven’t heard of or watched Netflix’s true-crime documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, you’re not doing this coronavirus self-quarantine thing right.

If like in quarantine is too mundane and you feel like you need a little excitement, there’s really nothing more exciting than getting to know Joe Exotic,  a “mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo.”

Did we mention that there’s also a murder-for-hire, drug kingpins, cults, all entangled in the world of big cats? Because there is.

The seven-part documentary will take you on a wild ride that’ll make you forget for a moment that there’s a pandemic plaguing our world.

Honestly, the only thing crazier than the Netflix offering are the tweets, memes, and reactions.
