It's the last day of 2012 in history so i decided to highlight which albums i felt where my best albums of 2012. i know i might shock some of you with my selections but.. just but. so here goes, my top 10 albums of 2012.

12. AEROSMITH - Music from another dimension
for their first album since 2004, Tyler and his crew actually did a great job on this album. from LOVE XXX which Tyler absolutely nails to the end of the album, Aerosmith lived up to it's billing for being one of the greatest rock bands of out time.
Fav song - Love XXX

11. The Music of Nashville

If you've never watched the show, well you should and then listen to this album and then you may understand why it is such an amazing album. Infact, it is one of the best country album's i've heard in my lifetime.
Fav song - When the right one comes along

10. FUN - Some Nights

Without saying much, some nights was an incredible album. From songs like "we are young" to "carry on", the band fun established themselves with this amazing piece of art.
Fav song - We are young


Yea, i'm not a screaming girl fan but i got the album and i listened to it and it was in my opinion a job well done by the boys from Britain
Fav song - Little things

8.  BRUNO MARS - Unorthodox Jukebox

December 6th was the release date and i waited patiently to hear what Bruno had to offer on this album and i wasn't disappointed. An impeccable fusion of great pop and sexy lyrics meant this album is to me his best work and is utterly engaging. (ohh, treasure is an amazing song)
Fav songs - Locked up in heaven, When i was your man

7. FIONA APPLE - The Idler Wheel...

Fiona Fiona, where have you been? Fiona: i've been making an album everyone would be proud of. and that is exactly what she did. Some might argue that this should be the best album of the year because it was that good.
Fav song - Every single night

6. Kanye West and GOOD MUSIC: Cruel Summer

The whole good music crew did an absolutely amazing job on this album, big ups to them
Fav song - Clique

5. JUSTIN BIEBER - Believe

This was the year i believe i totally embraced the Bieber fever and it was largely due to this album. Bieber's unique tone and great lyrics made this album an engaging one. Awesome
Fav. song - Die in your arms

4. JOHN MAYER - Born and Raised

Being a huge Mayer fan, i expected much from this album and i must say he did not disappoint. His SLEEK music style and awesome lyrics made this album one of the most captivating in 2012.
Fav songs - Shadow Days, Queen of California, A face to call home, Love is a Verb

3. Kendrick LAMAR - Good Kid, M.A.A.D City

This was the best hip-hop album of the year 2012 by a mile, Kendrick was awesome in this one. He found a way to appeal to both mainstream and underground hiphop fans everywhere. Little wonder the success it has had.
Fav song - Poetic Justice

2. FRANK OCEAN - Channel Orange

For someone who isn't a huge Ocean fan to have channel orange as my second best album in 2012, that says a lot on how good this album was and still is. from "thinking about you" to every other song on the album, Ocean showed a unique side and took everyone one a journey to his channel. A journey a lot of people are still enjoying.
Fav song - Thinking about you


OMG, from the first time i listened to this song, i added Taylor into my list of singers i wanted to see live before i died. RED was an awesome work of art by a brilliant singer. Taylor continued her usual way of telling stories with her lyrics, but this time it was a tale of freedom and release instead of pain and anguish. Songs like State of Grace, to Begin Again, to 22, to Everything has changed ft Ed Sheeran and others made this album my pick for the best album of the year.
Fav songs- State of Grace, Begin again, 22, Red, Treacherous, I knew you were trouble, Everything has changed ft ed sheeran......

Do you agree or you have an album that should have been here? let me know.



Hello Guys, it's definitely been a while. Since we last spoke a couple of wonderful new shows have come up and while some are here to stay, others have already been cut off. Here is the first part of the new show i'll encourage you to watch or keep watching as the case may be.

No matter how you look at it, arrow is an excellent new show. Great script and great acting. One thing that stands out with arrow is the pace. It's not draggy but straight to the point and always keeping you guessing on what Oliver's plan is. Definitely one to keep watching

The idea of a 21st century sherlock Holmes seemed far-fetched at first but i must say elementary gets it right in every aspect. Jonny Lee Miller makes this show worth the while with his breath-taking performances.

Before i go on a rant again as to why they cancel some shows, i think i'm justified in saying cancelling this show is a colossal mistake. I've come up with different theories on why it was cancelled like the US govt doesn't want to be seen in that light or someone is so cash strapped they had to cut it. Either way it's still a great new show and one to finish.

If you can't stand country and don't appreciate good music like i do, this show might be a drag but any genre of music you prefer, you can't fault the drama and acting in this show. Everyone plays their role brilliantly and i can only see it getting better.

5. GO ON
I already highlighted the brilliance of this show earlier on in my blog. Look it up and see why you should watch it

If you like cheesy and more cheesy spread over fun and craziness, this is one you should be watching. oh the name also adds to the cheesy nature of the show


This one is a maybe but if you would take my advice, keep watching it. It starts of slow and terrible but it builds into something worth waiting and watching for.

If you haven't watched any of these, i advise you to start off with one. anyone at all (probably last resort or arrow) and tell me what you think.

until next time keep living in an atmosphere for creativity.



So after the first night of audience voting, here is a run-down on who i think killed thier performances and should go through easily. Here are our top 5 picks of the night

1. Carly Rose Sonenclar
Every time i hear this girl is 13, it is just so unbelievable  She took on Bruno Mars' It will rain and blew the roof off. Simon said we are watching a star in the making and i totally agree. With that performance i think she set the pace for others to follow in the competition. 
Rating: 5/5

2. Fifth HARMONY
I guess the name change really worked a great change in this group. They have embraced their diversity and that was what they showed last night. It was a brilliant rendition of Christina Perri's "a thousand years". Really hope it is not a one off performance and they can keep it up.
Rating: 4.5/5

3. LYRIC 145
When i originally watched it, i thought it was whack, but i watched it again and i watched it again and i watched it again and they were in Simon's words, "bloody fantastic"Big ups to them, i think they are an american revelation and they will go far...
Rating: 4.4/5

4. Beatrice Miller/ Vino Alan

 there was a tie for 4th place as we couldn't decided who was better between Beatrice and Vino. Both did awesome jobs on their songs and delivered with such perfection and emotion. The case could be made for Beatrice that she is young but.. a tie is the best we could come up with.
Rating: 4.2/5

5. Diamond WHITE
So happy she is back. She didn't deserve to be sent off, and she showed why. Not her best, i must say but good enough to make our top 5 or 6 if you may. Singing Whitney Houston's I have nothing again albeit very straight-forward this time she did her best to make it her own.
Rating: 4.0/5

tell us if you agree or disagree with our ratings.

mark your calendar for your favorite show.....


The Amazing Ella

Have you ever heard a cover of a song and wish that was the original version?? Trust me it doesn't get any better than this... check out this performance, if you know the song, u'll be blown away....

the original song

enough said.....


X Factor Fail

Sometimes i wonder how somethings happen on television, how some decisions are made. this one surprises me most. I don't know if i am wrong but this dude deserved to be on the show, they made a huge mistake not putting him through

You see for yourselves and tell me what you think

his first audition

maybe its just me..


Introducing - Adanna DURU

Remember the name, because... just because. Season 3 of the voice has introduced some brilliant singers, and one of them is 15 year old Adanna Duru. The voice didn't give a full video for her audition but she sang enough to get my attention.

Adanna is a Nigerian-American singer-songwriter based in the USA. Brilliant is an expression that perfectly fits this teenage prodigy who has often been compared to the vocal styles of Mary J. Blidge and a host of other female musicians. 

How far would she go on the voice?? Well time will tell, but i believe she is a star in the making.

Take a look at some of her works and tell me what you think..



So one thing i like about the voice is that even the auditions are available for downloads on iTunes as full songs. I decided to search for some of my favorites and share with you. There is talent in this world i must add. Take a look...

Aquile - Your Song
Beautiful rendition of a beautiful song

Bryan Keith - It will Rain
i love his version as well as the original... he did a great job

Trevin Hunte - Listen
this dude is simply world class, exceptional talent

De'Borah - Hey, soul sister
there is something uplifting about her voice, just listen if you can tell too..

Gracia Harrison - I Want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
oh-di-lay-ee-ay, di-lay-dee-oh, di-lay-eee.....



Remember Matthew Perry, or better still Chandler of popular sitcom Friends, well he is back on the air, this time taking the leading role in NBC's new comedy series, Go On. Perry stars as Ryan King, a sportscaster trying to move on from the loss of his wife. He finds a support group made up of some crazy and emotional people and tries to fit in.

Casting for this show is one of the reasons it is so brilliant. Perry keeps on being his weird funny self, more like Chandler of friends than Ryan King, Bill Cobbs who plays a blind old man, Sarah Baker who i seem to love no matter what role she plays (i think she is funny).

Go on is an awesome new show with a great prospects, new jokes and a great cast. It will be a good addition to your comedy shows.


The Mob Doctor

What is it with tv shows about doctors?? From ER, to Grey's Anatomy, to House, to Saving hope.. i can keep calling names, they somehow keep being shoved in our faces. Most of the time though, they stick to us like glue.

Introducing, the Mob Doctor, this show is different from any "doctor" tv show. I love the plot of this one. Jordana Spiro plays Grace Devlin, a doctor from the slums with a debt to pay to mob for sparing her brother's life.
Although the premiere wasn't as brilliant as was expected, the storyline given the right balance would be able to hold its own. I guess we should give it a couple more episodes to see where they take the story to.

Anyways don't hold your breath for this one.


Jonathan and Charlotte

Ever wondered what's been happening to the Operatic duo that stunned the world with an awesome audition at Britain's Got Talent, well here's a little peek into the life of Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli.

Still reeling off their 1million pounds contract with Simon Cowell's Syco, the duo have been working on an album called Together due out on the 24th of september. The album would be an awesome get if your into classical music. I have heard a few songs off the album and it was a great job done.

If you've forgotten them, let me refresh your memory, and also listen to a song off their album

This song is a cover of Muse's Unintended. they did a great job


Melanie Amaro

If you were wondering what happened to X Factor USA's season 1 winner, Melanie Amaro, well she has been working on a new album, set to drop sometime in december.

She has also released two singles off that album, and i think she did a good job on both..

Check them out, and let me know what you think...



X Factor Season 2 - Premiere Day 2

Here we go again.. Day 2 of the X factor 2012. And we take a look at who rocked it and who sucked it (no offence)....

The Talent
Johnny Maxwell -
singing an original is always a risk when you have Simon on the judges panel. this dude really rocked it though. A great job for a 16 year old.

Jason Brock - Oh My Gosh.. i admit i thought this dude wouldn't have any talent with all his rambling... but he was amazing... that was awesome. Like LA Reid said, his voice is any song writer's dream..

Carly Rose Sonenclare - Wow.... Wow...WOW..WOW!!!! Words cant describe this talent.... no words i can think of

The Untalented
Lexa Berman - whew... that was annoying.. and Simon LIKED HER?? what was he thinking??

Patrick Ford - One of the most annoying auditions i've ever watched. Super obsessed with britney and was so awkward.. Hmmm.. Four NO'S. Deservedly

What a week for the X Factor. The beginning of something great i hope



Imagine Dragons

Are you done imagining?? well here are the dragons i'm talking about

These guys are unbelievably good. Okay not unbelievably but... what's the word?? Wait let me get my dictionary.. watch this video while you wait

they good right?? haha... still haven't found that dictionary, maybe i would have found it in my next post...

P.S. thanks fifa 13


The X-Factor USA Returns- Drama at its best

Yea, Simon Cowell is back on air, with his host of judges for a new season of the X-Factor USA. And with Britney Spears on the judges panel expect ratings to sky rocket. Okay down to the premiere, obviously mind blowing as expected. Cowell has been in this game long enough to know what to do and how to have an outstanding first show on air. This one was full of drama and serious talent as well as the fully-untalented...
Britney is an awesome judge i must say. I think she would own this season. Watch out Christina, you just got X'ed.

I think the edge the X factor has is encapsulating the stories of the contestants (like Jillian)
So expect more drama in this season

The Talent
Paige held her own on stage LA. Reid compared her to Ri-Ri

Paige Thomas - Great looking, beautiful and an amazing voice... will definitely go far

Emblem 3 - In one word - Awesome. Did an original song and completely nailed it.

Watch OUT  for these guys...

Jennel Garcia - She is a feisty one. And she has a great voice. One of the many you will want to watch out for...
four yeses for this amazing teen...

Jillian Jensen - that was the moment of the premiere, the bullied teenager just scored a victory, not just for her but for all those who have been bullied and she showed that everyone is a star, in their own way.
Her moment with Demi was magical and i have never heard so much pain in any voice. she is amazing

The Un-Talented

SHAWN ARMENTA- candy girl?? really?? was this guy serious at all??  And he attacked Demi for Auto-tuning her voice. FAIL!!!

Kaci Newton - Bitchy and really annoying and very untalented, and as Simon said, she sounded like she was dying...

Don Phillips - awesomely weird, he did a duet with Britney?? and she said no?? he deserved a no though...  And then he cries that he let her down. It was touching.. in a weird way.

Mmmm... I don't know
Quatro Deanne - i will reserve my comments on this one though. But he went through because the judges embraced the madness.

I think this season would be amazing so keep your wednesday nights open... 



And what a way to return. That was one of the best 90mins of any music show i've watched in recent time. The talent was high up there, the coaches were at each others throats and from what i saw on the first night, this season seems to be the best ever.

Below are some of the highlights of the show and people you should watch out for if you follow the voice...

Trevin HUNTE!!!
Except someone else hits the stage with something more glorious, this is the front runner of this season, he is simply amazing....

Gracia Harrison 
 my sister from another world, great natural country talent. one to watch out for

He nailed his audition, this dude has an awesome uniqueness to his voice. another reason why the voice will be one to reckon with
I thought he did a fantastic job and has a great voice

Okay i won't give you everything... if you want to see more, watch the full show and always check back for who i think the favorites are and check against your own



Did Switched At Birth make a grand return to TV??

It was one of the most anticipated returns of the year as the ever enthralling tale of two switched families prepared to wow us again after a rather brilliant finale. Did it accomplish its mission and make people like to watch more? Here's a look at some of the top moments of the last episode.

Hello BAD BAY!!
Heart broken Bay returned trying to put Emmet behind her with a new look and best of all with a new boyfriend (even though that lasted for about 20 mins). I thought they should have showed us more of Bad Bay instead of returning her to her normal self before the end of the first episode

Yes she is proving to be one hell of a stubborn lady and trying to survive on her own terms. Admirable yes, but she is still a child and is still invalid and the shows does well to promote that part of her. If they will smash the rest of the season they shouldn't forget to keep her struggle in the spotlight

Well so they say, it's all too cute though. The letter with the directions, the painting's on the wall, the promise to wait until he can make it right, the fact is HE IS SORRY!! Will Bay forgive him though?? I will love to see that because obviously, she is still madly in love with him ..

Yea she said they were done but we all know better. Her boyfriend doesn't believe in marriage and she clearly still loves her ex-husband but she was really self-less(or not) by marrying Angelo so he can have a chance with his kids, if that was her only reason time will tell

Overall, there are still questions left unanswered and though it wasn't as grand a return as was expected. It still leaves a lot to look forward to as the season progress

I'll score it a 7.5/10.. let me hear what you think
