(VIDEO) 9/28/11: DREW RYNIEWICZ X-FACTOR AUDITION ROCKS BIEBER SONG “BABY”

SORRY JUSTIN…BUT I REALLY LIKE HER VERSION BETTER! VOTE IN COMMENTS SECTION…BIEBER OR DREW?  WHO IS BETTER?

DREW – FOOTAGE BEFORE X-FACTOR

DREW RYNIEWICZ rocked the popular Justin Bieber hit “Baby” tonight on X-Factor.  While at first it was disappointing to hear that was her song selection, after her first note she had me sold.  It was one of the best remakes of the song, and there have been plenty. 

If she continues to make songs “her own” and belts them out with the same passion as tonight, she is definitely a contender for the finals.  This is some of the best talent of any singing competition shows, but with $5 million dollars on the line, it should be.

On a side note, looks like you can’t add Justin Bieber to your title on wordpress…interesting?  Bieber is banned from Twitter and WordPress…poor kid!

(VIDEO) 9/28/11: X-FACTOR USA REVIEWS: TALENT SURPRISES CONTINUE IN CHICAGO;JOSH KRAJCIK

JOSH KRAJCIK BEFORE X-FACTOR

X-FACTOR USA is only in its second week, however, the talent continues to impress the fans and judges. This week they showcased the talent in Chicago and then made their way to Seattle and they did not disappoint.  Last week Chris Rene, rocked the stage and instantly became a Youtube sensation, surging to over 2.5 million views. Now it looks like another soon-to-be star will follow his lead.

While several contestants sang extremely well tonight, the stand-out singer was Josh Krajcik.  When his mom paced backstage and was just about to explode with excitement, I questioned his talent.  But the burrito slinger from Columbus, Ohio, bolted out the Etta James classic At Last”, with one of the most soulful voices to-date.  His singing even surprised Simon Cowell, who thought he’d seen it all.  Josh’s interpretation of the song was one of the best I’ve heard and as we all know, everyone tries to sing it during competition shows.  He is certain to go far on X-Factor and is 150% more talented than our earlier favorite and winner of American Idol, Taylor Hicks.

Another truly gifted singer was the 14-year-old student, Drew Ryniewicz.  But when she first said that Justin Biebers’ “Baby” was her song choice, I cringed.  However, as she blew it out the water, I actually have to agree with the judges, it sounded better than the original version.  She can really sing!

If X-Factor continues to offer a variety of incredible talent and thankfully at all ages, it is sure to be a hit!  Can’t wait to see who takes home the $5 million dollar prize.  Who is your favorite so far?

(VIDEO) 2011: NEW CURFEW IN CHICAGO BEGINS SUNDAY; IS BIG BROTHER WATCHING?

 

Mayor Rahm Emanuel pushed to get a new curfew law established in Chicago.  The curfew was unanimously approved earlier in the summer by the Chicago City Council and takes effect this Sunday October 2, 2011.

It was put in place to ensure the safety of Chicago area children and has strict penalties.  Unsupervised minors aged 12 and younger are required to be home by 8:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 p.m. on the weekends.  If parents do not follow this new curfew they will be responsible for fines of up to $500 or community service.  If they receive three offenses within a year the fine goes up significantly and will cost the guilty parent $1,500 fine plus community service. 

There is a potential problem with this fine.  In many cases, children who will not follow this law are either extremely hard to manage, or live below the poverty level or with parents who don’t care and will be unable to pay the fine.  Will they offer counseling and family assistance?  Or will we have police and the courts tied up with these issues, instead of finding the killers of the kids shot nearly every day.

While this sounds good on paper, the sad fact is that many of the youth killed by drive-by shootings or stray bullets have been in their homes or next to an adult family member.  Some think this is a plan with good intentions, but will instead end up being just another case of “Big Brother”, further restricting our rights.  This is not to say they would not like to see an end to the violence and especially the deaths of innocent children.

Fairly soon, American will be just like any other third world country.  Our rights keep slipping away from us right under our noses.  What do you think?  Is this a good plan?
