Charice’s singing ability is nothing short (no pun intended) of amazing. When word got around that she will be joining the cast of Glee, the response was very positive and not only Filipinos eagerly awaited for her debut on the highly popular show. So when Season 2 started airing yesterday (Sept. 21 in the US) on Philippine cable TV, the whole country watched in awe as the pint-sized Filipina held her own against lead actress Lea Michele (playing Rachel Berry) in two highlights of the first episode. The first was when her character – Sunshine Corazon – ‘dueled’ with Rachel Berry inside the washroom as they sang the Lady Gaga/Beyonce hit “Telephone”, while the second saw her formally auditioning to the McKinley High Glee Club with the Beyonce song “Listen” from Dreamgirls.
I must admit getting goosebumps watching Charice hitting one money note after another. For those who missed it or want to watch again, here’s the video…

Knowing now that Sunshine Corazon’s character has been ‘intercepted’ by the Director of Vocal Adrenaline, it paves the way for more vocal drama between her and Rachel Berry in the weeks to come, especially when their singing competitions reach the regionals in New York. But that also means less of Charice in the next few episodes or so, not until the need to ignite the battle between New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline begins. I was half-hoping that Sunshine will eventually be wooed back to rejoin the lead cast in their school, but I don’t see that happening just yet.
To Charice, excellent job! You did not disappoint. More! More! More! 😉
Have you guys seen Beyonce’s latest music video with Lady Gaga?
My eyes got literally pasted to the boob tube (no pun intended) while watching the same. She is just smoking hot and I can honestly state that Lady Gaga looked like a poor second-fiddle to the Diva.
Watch below and tell me what you think:

Isn’t Beyonce just devilishly sexy in this video?
Are you a big fan of Adam Lambert? Yes, that guy with the fantastic vocal range who placed runner-up to Kris Allen in this year’s Americal Idol and who stirred controversy at the recent American Music Awards by locking lips with another guy during the tailend of his production number.
So are you a fan of Adam Lambert? I know I am. I just got hold of his debut CD “For Your Entertainment” via iTunes and can’t help but gush over the line-up. Except for a couple of ditties that do not hook me up instantly, the rest of the songs (16 all in all inclusive of two bonus track downloads from iTunes) are pure ear-candies in a very substantial pop-glam-rock way. My top picks are, of course, “For Your Entertainment”, “Whataya Want From Me?”, “Time for Miracles” and “If I Had You.” By the way, there are superstar cameos by Pink, Lady Gaga, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, Matthew Bellamy of Muse and Justin Hawkins of The Darkness. What more can you ask for?
This is one explosive cd album. You won’t regret buying it.
Below is an audio clip of “For Your Entertainment”:

Ever wondered how Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta looked like before striking it rich in the Hollywood music industry? Of course, it doesn’t help that she has a long name that will not augur well for quick recall purposes. More importantly, there is no charisma whatsoever if the lackadaisical image will just be something like the video below:

So enter the big break. That kilometric name was reduced to just 8 letters and the look was given a head-to-foot makeover that zooms past the imagination.
LADY GAGA was born and how she has metastasized!

See how LADY GAGA has become big and FAME-ous! I’m not wild over her style but her music is ear-candy and very infectious!
Thank God it’s Friday! Enjoy the weekend, guys!
