TOP5 Reasons Why I Think Jessica Sanchez Almost Got Eliminated

One of the “frontrunners” of this season’s American Idol is Jessica Sanchez. Throughout the show, she consistently showed vocal prowess and performance way beyond her years as if she has been performing for 20years. Hence tonight’s elimination results, when Jessica Sanchez almost got eliminated (thanks to judges’ save), was the biggest shock of the season. I know this is not the first time this has happened on American Idol. Jennifer Hudson, Daughtry,  and last season’s Pia Toscano are only a few names who faced elimination unexpectedly. Luckily for Jessica, judges had one “save” card at hand.

But what really happened? What are the possible things that have almost caused Jessica’s American Idol journey’s demise? Listed below are my Top5 ideas.

5) American Idol Producer’s Stunt

If you go to American Idol’s Youtube website, you can see that Jessica has the biggest number of views and likes of all the other contestants. “I Will Always Love You” alone has gotten almost 3Million views. So how does this relate to AI producer’s stunt of “eliminating” Jessica?  Of course Jessica’s supporters will vote more the next episodes. Then, the non-Jessica supporters will vote for their bet as well threatened by Jessica’s supporters.  More votes, more money

This season’s per episode rating is at average 5million lesser than its predecessor. Jessica’s almost elimination trended over twitter worldwide and being discussed in various websites. This hype that the producers might have concocted may bring even the curious non-viewers to watch the next episodes. Not a bad strategy.

4) Underdog Strategy

There has never been a single performance that Jessica received bad comments from the judges. The most mediocre one I think is when she performed “Turn The Beat Around” which is still not a bad comment compared to what others are getting. Definitely, she is not an underdog. From the past seasons of Idol, America tend to vote for the underdogs. The frontrunners are usually left and ignored. This I think is the reason why producers might want to “eliminate” Jessica (of course they also planned to save her). She has the most marketable talent of all the finalist. Producers would want to her as a winner because she surely can bring a lot of money for them.

3) She is “Not” American

Ok. Admit it or not. She is not American-looking. Although she is born in America, she is still of Filipino/Mexican decent competing for American Idol. I’m not sure if America is ready to have an asian looking AI champ

2) Too Much “Pinoy” Pride

I’m a Filipino. But it makes me cringe everytime I see people posting “Pinoy Pride” or “Proud to be Pinoy” eveytime she perfoms. I mean, come on! This is not Manny Pacquiao’s boxing fight! Or Olympics! Or even Miss Universe! For the love of God, this is American Idol! A-M-E-R-I-C-A! Please stop that “Pinoy Pride” thingy. It just alienates most Americans. Can you imagine us having Philippine Idol, and there’s Chinese contestants and then all the Chinese people would say “Proud to be Chinese”? Seriously? Would you vote for that contestant?! This “Pinoy Pride” is too much. It’s alienating. It’s irritating. Just support Jessica. Simple. Keep your pride to yourselves!

1) Complacent Supporters

I think this is the most possible reason why she got the lowest votes. Her supporters became complacent. They were very confident that their idol wouldn’t be eliminated after an extravagant performance. Well, I hope this should serve as a wake-up call. No more “saves”. No more second chances. If you still want to see Jessica singing until Finale, vote for her until the end!

For those of you who missed her “Save Me” song, here’s the YouTube clip.

THE HUNGER GAMES (excited lang)

These books have kept me sleepless for the past few days. I just can’t drop them. My everyday train trip (30mins) has seemingly been cut short because I’m so into reading the story na parang ambilis ng oras. Muntik muntik na nga ako sumobra kung minsan. Hehe

Tapos ilang araw na lang. Palabas na rin dito ang movie!!! What excites me is to fact that I’ll be able see the characters na I only imagine on my mind moving, tapos yung how they look, how they talk, etc, etc.

I hope that this is not another Twilight movie na pa-tweetums ang mga actors. Well, of some sorts, medyo may pagkakahawig sila.

Love triangle. Girl (Katniss Everdeen) being confused between two lovers.

Gale.

and Peeta.

But what i like about the story is this is more of an action/adventure movie tapos yung love story on the sides lang.  Unlike Twilight na nakaka-umay na kakornihan ang love story.

I can’t also wait for Rue (the 12 year old girl)!!!

I swear, when I read the book, I can imagine Rue looking almost the same girl to portray na character. Nakaka excite!

ODK! Can’t wait for Mar.23!!! Naiihi ako!!!

FOR YOU (the very jologs side of me)

Another ODK moment!!!

I was laughing when I listened to this song again. Kasi naman ang lyrics! Hahaha

I composed this song when I was in high school (yes kids, it’s like 12 years ago. I know I’m old. Pero di ko naman pinapahalata. Haha).  Anyway, going back, I remember this is the FIRST song I wrote and put music into. It took me just one day to do everything! Na inspire ata dahil sa pagiging heartbroken. Hehe.

This record is not new rin. I remember, a friend of mine back in 2nd year college heard the song when I played it sa piano. Tapos he was so interested, ayun, I taught him how to sing it and decided to record it together. Using my then mp3 player, we recorded the song using an old toy piano (hence the quality of the sound).  And tada!!!! Eto ang finished product! Nahukay ko pa sa baul.

I’m also including the lyrics for your entertainment. Hehehe. So there, welcome to the jologs side of me! J

PS. Pasensya na rin kung maraming “baby” sa lyrics. Ginawa ko kasi ang kanta na to nung kasikatan pa ng mga boybands. Haha

 

And here’s the girl’s version. Pero chorus lang. 🙂

FOR YOU

 

Sleepless nights I suffer but my heart

Still holds on and thinks that my,

My love will bring you back

I did my best but all I could do was cry

Why did you let my love go and fly

Oh baby why, my baby, why

Refrain:

But don’t you worry coz my love

Is forever, this I swear…

Chorus:

Sky above the clouds

Or sun and shining stars

Believe that my,

My heart is blind

Coz now you got me inside

Affections never end

Coz baby you’re my living shed

Oh baby I,

I swear no lies

For you I’m ready to die…

Now the thing I fear has suddenly begun

I lost your love and now is gone

The promises are gone

And if to leave you would lighten up a way

I’d better fly and wouldn’t stay

Just wait you for the day

(repeat refrain)

(repeat chorus)

Adele Flashes a Dirty Finger

Adele flashes dirty finger after she was cut off her acceptance speech on Brit Awards 2012.

Hmmm…. I don’t know. Although I understand bakit nya ginawa yun (dirty finger), I think it is still inappropriate….

Baka mas OK pa sana binato na lang nya ng trophy yung host.  :p
