DO YOU STILL BLOG? RECENT NEWS AND INQUIRING MINDS INSPIRE RETURN

Blogger Brittaj17

It has been a while since my last blog. Many have asked the question “Do you still blog?” Well…that finally inspired me to write again. If you’re a blogger you can probably relate to “writers block”; which is apparently the syndrome I was dealing with for the past few month’s. The thoughts were in my head of many things I wanted to write about, but my fingers refused to cooperate!

So what’s been going on in the world? Well, we all know Simon Cowell shared some good and bad news recently. The self-absorbed ego maniac finally gave birth to a baby boy named Eric (how original).  We are all hopeful this will now remind him that “the world does NOT revolve around Simon”.  However, with the good comes the bad; he also learned his beloved creation The X Factor was canceled after only 3 seasons.  Now this was disappointing to hear, because the production value and talent far exceeded any other singing competition.  Oh well!  I guess The Voice knocked him off his feet.

Other happenings…the return of Jennifer Lopez (aka JLo) to American Idol this season.  It was exhilarating to hear she would join the lackluster team of judges.  She is clearly the best judge of any show and offers the most comprehensive advice.  Unfortunately, for me the show seems VERY flat this year and I’m not sure she can save them.  Idol may need some type of boost or may find themselves on the chopping block along with The X Factor.  It is shocking, since the early rounds showcased some great talent…but they obviously cut the WRONG singers.  The chemistry among judges also seems to be lacking…although Harry Connick Jr can be pretty funny.  Am I alone with these thoughts?  Make sure to chime in.

Did you hear about the Las Vegas gambler?  It was funny to hear that a man apparently consumed over 20 drinks while at the casino and lost over $500k!  Of course, he is doing the “American thing”; suing the casino for loaning him all that cash while intoxicated.  Let’s hope Californian Mark Johnston refrains from gambling while drunk in the future.  Will he win the case?  Probably, since it’s illegal for casino’s to loan money while consumers are intoxicated. Only in America!

Who can forget the outrage felt around the world about the verdict in the “Loud Music Shooting?”  It was very disappointing to hear that teens can be killed over something so trivial and a man can basically “get off” on murder charges.  Let’s face it, Michael Dunn could have called the police and gone about his business.  If he was so fearful for his life, why did he follow them and become a reckless vigilante?  Why do we need police if civilians can run around with guns, shooting people like in the “Wild Wild West”.  There was clearly malice and intent for him to shoot at them so many times.  Did the jury really have to fight about this verdict?  Seriously, this was an “open and shut” case.  Whoever believes this was NOT about race is delusional.   Hoping that 17-year-old Jordan Davis haunts Dunn in his dreams.  That man deserves to suffer for a very long time.

How does a huge airplane come up missing?  Well this is hard to comprehend, but it happened this week.  Apparently Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 lost contact with air control and 239 crew and passengers are now missing.  Wow…it seems like a scene from a movie.  Let’s hope they find it and all are safe.

Of course there has been so much more interesting news.  However, this is just my quick return to the “blogging world“.  Thanks to my loyal follower’s for asking…and inspiring me to write again.  But it is the start of the spring housing market, so let’s hope that does not slow my blogging down again!

5/8/13: THE VOICE VS. IDOL; WHAT DID YOU WATCH TONIGHT? WHO WENT HOME ON THE VOICE?

The Voice went head-to-head with American Idol tonight.  According to early feedback, it appears that the new singing competition, The Voice, may be the winner.  They were smart to add another day and go against their rival on Fox. Tomorrow’s ratings should show a new leader in front of the original master of creating instant super stars.

While Idol was the one who opened the door for signing competition shows, it looks like The Voice may be the one to close it.

I watched both shows and although the earlier seasons of The Voice left me annoyed, the new addition of Usher and Shakira have me watching.  It is far better now that Christina Aguilera has left.

Curious to see the ratings tomorrow….but no doubt Idol will get crushed.  What did you watch?

On another note, if Judith Hill does not win The Voice I will eat 50 Portillo’s hotdogs.  Oh wait…that would be a good thing!   Who went home tonight?  Check it out here…at Thevoice.com.

THE VOICE, THE X FACTOR, OR AMERICAN IDOL…WHO HAS THE BEST TALENT?

Singing competition shows are viewed by millions and filling up my DVR, so it made me wonder….which show has the best talent?  The Voice, The X Factor or American Idol?  Well…this is a tough one for me because they all have continued to step up their game each season.

Since American Idol exploded into our living rooms back in June of 2002, many similar shows have followed.  After the first Idol winner Kelly Clarkson topped the charts and amazed viewers, it seems that each of the following years the talent got better.

This season The Voice and The X Factor have raised the bar when it comes to their search for the best singers in America.  Both shows have featured many great singers…making it hard to guess who will win.  They seemed to have found an abundance of unique equally talented artist’s.

But in the end, my choice would be The X Factor when it comes to the cream of the crop.  Even though The Voice has finally grown on me and there are definitely some standouts this season, it just does not compare.   While American Idol will not air until this wInter (ghetto style), in recent season’s the talent still does not come close to The X Factor.  But if The X Factor keeps getting cut off like it did last week once again…it will anger me enough to cut them off!  Someone needs to get fired after that crappy ending.

It would be pretty cool if they all came together and had a sing off with the best of each show?  They could call it “The American Idol with The Voice and The X Factor”!  Would you watch? Sort of like an All Star Survivor episode…

On another note; the judges on each show can’t compare to the judging skills of Jennifer Lopez, luckily the singers are floating them this year.  Right now if I were to pick the best Judge on all shows combined, it would have to be Simon Cowell…at least he tells the truth.  The rest of them really don’t impress me and are borderline annoying.  Good thing Khole Kardashian and Mario Lopez (with his fine self) have signed on as co-host of The X Factor…so I can forget Britney Spears is even there.

Vote below and let’s see who viewer’s choose as the best singing competition show.
