{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} X FACTOR USA 2013; CHICAGO’S CARLITO OLIVERO FIGHTS HARD UNTIL THE END

Chicago’s very own, Carlito Olivero, made it all the way to the finals on The X Factor.  That alone was a triumph for this young man, who fought hard and gave his all, even through the many challenges thrown his way.  Some doubted him…but he kept pushing. His passion and endurance is an inspiration to the youth around the globe.

It was exciting to hear his name called as one of the top three finalists, especially after he fell to the bottom two multiple times.  This is a perfect example of how you can come from poverty and still make something of yourself with hard work and perseverance. How can you not LOVE a fighter?

The judges may have given him harsh critiques along the way, but he took note and made adjustments.  Carlito was hungry for a win and obviously wanted it bad.  There was no stopping him, which even earned him the respect of the sometimes grumpy Simon Cowell.

While Carlito was up against major competition; Alex & Sierra and Jeff Gutt, getting this far is already a win for this Chicago native.  He will always have a special place in the hearts of many and especially those in the Windy City.  Trust me, the fans are rooting for him and want to see him succeed long after this show.

Go Carlito!  Wishing you all the success you deserve…win or lose on The X Factor, you are already a WINNER to us all.

[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) 12/27/12: BRITNEY SPEARS FIRED FROM THE X FACTOR? LET’S HOPE SO…

Did Simon Cowell finally listen to my message and take my advice?  Well, that’s still a mystery but rumor’s are buzzing that Britney Spears may be getting fired.   According to Us Weekly, Britney is not worth the $15 million dollar paycheck….and I totally agree.

Unfortunately, the revamped pop “Princess” brings absolutely nothing to the table.  While fans love her music and rooted for her after her complete meltdown, she is just not a good judge.  Spears’ limited vocabulary offers contestants a fifth grade critique, that even Honey Boo Boo could give on her worst day.

Let’s face it, Cowell made a hasty decision when shaking it up this season.  When he fired Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, it was clear he made huge mistake on day one of taping season two.  And to be frank, Demi Lovato is no better than Britney…he needs to let her go too.  While she has a sassy personality and gives Simon a run for the money….it’s getting old very fast.

Sorry Britney fans, but she really does need to go.  Unfortunately, she should stick with singing and leave judging up to the experts.  Best judge ever?  Goes to Jennifer Lopez….she has class, style, and a lot of inspiring words to share with the contestants.  They should take notes on her judging skills.

BYE…BYE…BYE BRITNEY SPEARS.  Hoping this rumor is true.  This was the worst investment of Simon Cowells’ life. Call me Simon…I will judge the show for FREE!

Best decision of Simon Cowells’ career?  Letting Britney go.
