I'm currently looking for some new writers in order to expand the blog given that I can't post the amount of things I'd like to. So if you are interested in writing about anything related to music (news, TV shows, album reviews, introducing artists) just drop me an email to musicisthedoor@gmail.com and we can discuss some of your ideas.

X Factor UK 2010: First Live Show will be the Longest Ever! + UPDATE: My prediction was RIGHT!


UPDATE: My prediction was RIGHT!  The judges houses rejected contestants will return to the show on the first live show and then the judges will pick one of them to join their categories. Probably this will happen at the beggining, and then the contestants will have to perform. I'm loving this!!!!!! This is one of the best news ever! It's not yet certain if all four acts will advance to the live shows or if the public is going to vote for only one of them to advance. However, my predictions are: The Reason or Husstle for the Groups, Yuli Minguel for the Overs, John Wilding  or Paije Richardson for the Boys and for the Girls ... any could advance, it all depends of their judges houses performances, but I suspect Cheryl will pick TrayC Cohen or Gamu Nhengu, or maybe Annastacia Baker, or Keri Arrindel, what about Raquel Thomas?. See?! They are all amazing!

It's been recently reported by ITV, which airs the show, that the first live show of the seven series will air for two and a half hours on October 9!!! That means 2:30 hours of singing!!! Accordingly, the lenght of the show is due to a surprise for us viewers!! I like surprises! As I'm seeing it, the big surprise will be a fourth contestant of each category advancing, as Sinitta reveled earlier this year, which was later denied. This will be great news, and I hope this is the surprise. If this is true, the series will also be the longest, which explains why the show is expected to end on January 2011. I don't know, it makes sense for me, doesn't it?

What do you think is the big surprise? Comment!

Catching Up With: Scott Newnham: First Single, First Music Video

 

Our favourite brickee, Australian Idol S7 eight placer, Scotty Newnham, is just starting his music carrer. Some time ago, Scott was signed by Razor Records and released his first single on September 3. The music video for the song, titled "Really Me" debuted on September 2 on YouTube. Considering Scott is a newcomer, and has never performed before Idol, this song is really ok. Pretty RnB meets Hip Hop. The video is really excellent, Scott looks terrific and the video is actually pretty enjoyable. However, the song doesn't have any powerful moments, it's a bit plain. But it's his first, so, let's see what's next ...

X Factor Australia 2010: Bootcamp Days 1 and 2 Recap!



I really didn't know how to do this recap. I was thinking in doing a blow by blow recap, but I consider doing that for this stage is a bit boring. Instead, I'll try to sum up what happened, and add some videos of the performances and the decisions. Plus, I'll try to follow the journey of the previously featured contestants and post a list of the final 6 of each group at the end with my predictions! I hope to hear yours too!

Music Video: Marina and the Diamonds: Shampain



"Shampain" is the upcoming fifth single from Marina's debut studio album, The Family Jewels. It will be released on October 4, 2010 while the music video, which was directed by Kim Gehri, premiered today, September 6, on YouTube. Marina is just amazing! My review may be a little biased because I love her, but look at her videos. Aren't they pure greatness? They feel old, but new, I don't know really how to explain this, they are like a new retro. Her style is so unique that I can't really compare her to anyone. Although this particular video is wierd, she's as well terrific! I don't know if she's trying to show she's super drunk or hallucinating  after eating a burger but the most incredible thing in the video is her teary face, isn't she awesome?!

Watch "Shampain" after the JUMP ...

Music Video: Taylor Swift: Mine + Speak Now Cover

"Mine" is Taylor's first single, released August 4, from her upcoming third album, "Speak Now", due for release on October 25, 2010. The music video premiered on August 27 and it was directed by Roman White. The groom is played by Toby Hemingway, who is rumored to be dating Taylor. This video is just beautiful! Taylor looks terrific and she really seems to be getting older. Plus I loved how the pictures were hanging from the trees. We all know that Taylor isn't the best vocalist on Earth, but she brings a pureness to all the songs she sings, and that's why people love her, for her true sweetness! Another hit for Mrs. Swift ...

Watch the video, the album cover and buy "Mine" after the JUMP ...
