Music Fest 2010, A Blast

February 7, 2010

I’m really happy that I witnessed such a powerhouse show and amazing concert. Music Fest happened yesterday February 6, 2010 at Mckinley Hills Taguig. Such an amazing acts were showed. From the acoustic heartthrobs Boyce Avenue, to the America’s Best Dance Crew Champion Jabbawockeez up to the American Idol Season 8 winner Kris Allen. I really can’t stop myself in screaming especially when the Boyce Avenue sang their version of bleeding love of Leona Lewis mixed with apologize by One Republic. Of course, my boys Jabbawockeez gave a heart stopping performance through their new and old dance routine. And Kris Allen, who will not be fall in love to his voice and charisma. I really love all his songs and no doubt that he’s really good.

The concert was a blast and really a big success. Congratulations to all the sponsors, Fearless Productions, Channel V, MMI and etc. We really enjoyed the concert eventhough I got home so late it’s so worth and very memorable. I hope they produce many concerts like this. Congratulations and i’m looking forward for the next concert. 

Live Like We’re Dying Lyrics:

Sometime we fall down and can’t get back up
We’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough
How come we don’t say I love you enough
Till it’s too late, it’s not too late

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
We could make a feast from these crumbs
And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would’ve done

Yeah… gotta start
Looking at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin’ it
Every second counts on a clock that’s tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

(Continued after the jump)
Well if you plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbyes
Should be so careful who we live out of our lives
So when we long for absolution, there’ll be no one on the line

Yeah… we gotta start lookin’ at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
This all we got and we gotta start thinkin it
Every second count on a clock that’s tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
to turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

Like we’re dying oh…
Like we’re dying
Like we’re dying oh…
Like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
to turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

You never know a good thing until it’s gone
you never see a crash until its head on
All these people right when we’re dead wrong,
You never know a good thing till it’s gone

Yeah… we gotta start lookin’ at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
this all we got and we gotta start thinkin it
Every second count on a clock that’s tickin
Gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
to turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

Like we’re dying oh…
Like we’re dying
Like we’re dying oh…
Like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
to turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

“Kris Allen is, without a doubt, the American Idol” Fox and FremantleMedia said.

Over a 100 million votes came in and Kris Allen won by undisclosed margin over Adam Lambert. But they don’t mention the number of votes of Kris and Adam. Since season 1 American Idol was announcing the total votes but did not mention how those votes were divided.

AT&T, the country’s largest telecommunications company, is the main sponsor of the show. Anyone in the United States could vote through phones, but only AT&T customers were allowed to text.

Some AT&T employees brought 20 demo phones to “American Idol” viewing parties in Arkansas which is Allen’s place and helped fans text their votes. Two of those phones were capable of sending multiple votes by so-called “power texting,” but A.I. prohibits “power voting” by text or phone. The company said that those actions did not affect the outcome. AT&T said that they brought a small number of demo phones for texting tutorials to those who were interested.

“Going forward, we will make sure our employees understand our sponsorship celebrates the competition, not individual contestants. That said, it’s quite a leap to suggest that a few individuals could have impacted the final results,” the company said.

For Adam Lambert, losing was a possibility; he knew that Kris had just as much of a chance as he did. Adam didn’t know the results of the final vote but he was suspicious on Gokey’s follower. There’s a possibility that the fans of Gokey chose to vote for the more conservative Kris Allen.

Kris Allen won the American Idol season 8 over Adam Lambert. Over a record breaking 100 million votes came in and America’s just spoken that Kris deserved to be the American Idol. Although Adam Lambert was the front runner on the past weeks and always judge’s favorite, still, the charm of this boy next door rules. Kris Allen was considered as an underdog to the competition but he proved that he deserves for an American Idol title. Adam Lambert did a great job too but maybe he’s style was not appreciated by some people, unlike Kris Allen’s versatility. He plays piano and guitar and he’s good in interpreting songs.

“No boundaries” Lyrics:

Seconds hours so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait
Every moment last forever if you feel you’ve lost your way
What if your chances are already gone
Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

Coz hear I am still holding on!

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

I’m faulting my landing to stand on the edge
What if today is as good as again
Don’t know what the future is heading
Nothing’s gonna bring me down
I’ve jumped every bridge and I’ve heard every lie
I’ve risked being safe but I always knew why
I always knew why

So hear I am still holding on!

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing

When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand and show you that you can

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
Break every rule coz there’s nothing between you and your dreams

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe, Yeah
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe

You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes
There are no boundaries [3x]

His first single was “No Boundaries” which was composed by Idol judge Kara Dioguardi. This song suits to the soulful voice of Kris Allen and the arrangement was the best!

For me, the content of the song was about reaching your dreams. Even there’s a lot of hindrance and barriers in reaching it, don’t lose hope and you will succeed. There are no boundaries in dreaming and there are no boundaries of achieving it.

I’m sure that this song will hit the billboards and will play all over the radios. I can’t wait for Kris’s album. But to Kris, again, congratulations! He did a great job for the whole season of American Idol Season 8!
