{VIDEO} WHO WON THE X FACTOR USA 2013? FINALE RECAP….AND THE WINNER IS?

Well, as far as I know all bets were on the right contestant to win The X Factor.  And it was good to see America got it right!  The final three were down to Alex & Sierra, Jeff Gutt and Chicago’s very own Carlito Olivero.  While they all fought hard until the end, the most unique and talented singers pulled ahead when it counted most.

First let’s begin with the production and entertainment value of the finale.  In my opinion it was more like a holiday concert which is really not my thing.  Although One Direction, the biggest group in the World performed, and fan favorite Pit Bull belted out his hit song “Timber“, it was not enough to outshine this years The Voice” season finale.

It was definitely not my favorite ending of a singing competition show, but the announcement of deserving winner made it all good.  Yes, if you guessed it was Alex & Sierra running away with the $1M recording contract…you are correct!  Their performance of “Say Something” certainly sealed the deal.  I am truly happy for them and know they will have a very long career in the music industry…well, if they can just keep their relationship in check.  This win will absolutely change the dynamics of their lives.

Congrats to the three finalist; they ALL gave 100% until the end and should do well long after The X Factor!

On another note, it was sad to see the very talented Jeff Gutt leave without a win, but he will no longer need to worry.  This also goes for the fighter Carlito Olivero, Chicago and his parents are proud and he will now have the ability to help support them!

[VIDEO] SIMON COWELL CONFIRMS BABY RUMOR…I’M THE DADDY & PROUD!

Simon Cowell finally broke his silence about the love triangle “baby daddy” rumors.  During this week’s London World premiere of the “One Direction” This Is Us” new film, the famous Brit told the BBC; “I’m proud to be a dad.  It’s something I hadn’t thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it.”

The shocking tale of him sleeping with his good friends wife, Lauren Silverman, caused a stir and unfortunately a divorce.  When her husband, Andrew Silverman, heard the shocking news he quickly left her and filed the dreaded papers.  After 10 years of marriage, his wife leaves with another mans baby AND about $2 million bucks.  Seems like she is the BIG winner in this deal.

Well, at least Simon was a gentleman and held his tongue until the furry of waves calmed.  He allegedly kept his silence to allow time for the divorce to become final.

Lauren sure knows how to pick rich guys…and she definitely upgraded by getting pregnant by a BILLIONAIRE:).  It was once rumored that Simon did not want kids, but he seems to be all smiles now.

The most surprising part about the story….is that it happened with his mistress, not the dozens of model types he has previously been linked to in the past!  Can you say….child support payday?  Maybe his luck ran out and was used up with all of his successful business ventures.

This should have a very interesting ending.  Let’s just hope it’s NOT a boy…we know his HUGE ego will force him to name the baby Simon!

Looks like The X Factor just found a way to see huge ratings…do you think he timed this out perfectly? The show premieres September 11th….wow!

(VIDEO BLOG) 12/20/12: WHO WON THE X FACTOR USA? SEASON 2 FINALE; TATE STEVENS, CARLY ROSE SONENCLAR, OR FIFTH HARMONY?

Published 12/20/12

WATCH MY PREDICTION VIDEO AND SEE IF I GOT IT RIGHT…WHO WON THE X FACTOR?

The X Factor season finale aired tonight.  Millions of fans tuned in and were excited to see who would win the $5 million dollar recording contract.  Would it be the angelic group Fifth Harmony, the 13-year-old teen sensation Carly Rose Sonenclar, or country singer and family man Tate Stevens?

Well, anyone watching this year would know it could go either way.  While Tate and Carly held the top spots all season, Fifth Harmony jumped from underdog to top three.

They all stepped up their game at the right time and received 35 million votes from their fans to prove it. This was probably one of the toughest to call, of all singing competitions.  Each contestant was so different and all seemed genuine and were extremely talented.

Simon Cowell pulled out all the stops to ensure a huge ratings success.  With performances from the biggest stars in the music industry, Pit Bull and One Direction, he could not go wrong.  And a Rolls Royce on the set sealed the deal…he was in it to win it.  Or at least increase his ratings.

So, who won The X Factor?  Let’s first get to the third runner-up; it was not a huge surprise but a certain disappointment for many of their fans.  Yep, you guessed it...Fifth Harmony.  It looked like Simon hated to lose…you know he has a HUGE ego!  Too bad…I love an underdog.

Of course that left the fan favorites Tate and Carly Rose to duke it out.  It was a nail biter, since I was really rooting for Carly Rose.  But in the end it was Tate Stevens who ran away with the $5 million bucks!  Good for him…at least he has a family to care for and can really use they cash.  LA Reid can at least leave the show a winner. Goes to show…country fans are loyal!

No worries, they are all winners and will find huge success in the music industry…CONGRATS to all the contestants!

On another note: was LeAnn Rimes drunk last night?  Well, read what the rags are saying and be the judge.  It certainly looked like an awkward moment for Carly Rose.

THE 2013 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS LIVE; CBS ANNOUNCES NOMINEES TONIGHT; WHERE IS JUSTIN BIEBER, BRUNO MARS & ONE DIRECTION?

FRANK OCEAN- NOMINATED FOR BEST NEW ARTIST AND SONG OF THE YEAR

The Grammy nominations were presented in a mini-concert tonight on CBS.  Some of my favorite songs are in line to grab an award on the biggest music event of the year. The 55th annual Grammy’s will air on February 10, 2013 (8pm/7pm central).

Many top artists performed, including; Maroon 5, Ne-Yo, Fun, and Luke Bryan.  It adds to the hype of the award nominations and makes it more entertaining as they read the names.

It was great to hear the “Record of The Year” nominees included; Kelly Clarkson (“Stronger”), and Taylor Swift (“Never Ever Getting Back Together Again”).  Love those songs, but wished Bruno Mars was on the list.  He has had amazing songs this year and any one of them deserved to be record of the year.  Other songs competing for this coveted award are; The Black Keys (“Lonely Boy”),  Fun Feat. Janell Monae (“We Are Young”), Gotye Feat. Kimbra (Somebody That I Used To Know”), and Frank Ocean (“Thinkin Bout You”).  Ne-yo should also have made this category…”Let Me Love You” is a great song with a great message.  And is it just me or are some of these songs weaker than usual for this category.

The most exciting nomination for me is always Best New Artist of The Year“.  However, this year it was strange to see the list of name and many great singers were missing.  While most had hit songs that I knew very well, many of their names nor faces seemed familiar.  It was as though their songs overpowered them, which is a huge change from the past.  The nominees are; Alamba Shakes, Fun, Hunter Hayes, The Lumineers, and Frank Ocean.  Where’s the variety?

This year’s nominee’s shows where music is headed right now…seems to be more pop and with a less soulful sound.  No rapper’s and only one R & B singer in the new artist category?  It appears crossover music is more prominent now…which could be good or bad depending on what you like.

The full list of nominees can be found at http://www.grammy.com/.  Check them out and post your comments.  Did your favorite make the list?

Seriously…where is Justin Bieber (Record of the Year), One Direction (Best New Artist), Bruno Mars (Record of The Year/Pick one!), Nicki Minaj, and Carley Rae Jepsen (Best New Artist)?  The fans are pissed!  I guess selling millions of records does not get you a Grammy.  Bieber and Mars had a lot of great hits this year…this is a huge disappointment. 

CONGRATS TO ALL THE NOMINEES…WHAT A HUGE HONOR!
