how are you? I hope everything is going fine with you.Today it's a pretty sunny day and I'm happy because I was tired of the last rainy days.
I want summer so bad!
By the way, I need to ask a little help from you, from who wanna give it to me, of course.
My favorite band Tokio Hotel has been nominated in O Music Awards for the fourth time and I'm so so happy, all the Aliens are voting for them.
Voting is pretty simply, you have to go HERE scroll the list and click on "VOTE" below Tokio Hotel image.
You can vote them signing with Twitter or Facebook.
You can vote 50 times per day since you don't reach the second level and so you get 100 votes, more you go on with levels more you can vote.
You can vote also from the profile of other members so they can get more votes and reaches a new level, what I ask is, could you please vote from my OMA profile?
I really don't know if Tokio Hotel will send a special prize to the #1 fan like the last year, but if it was, I would try my best to reach at least the top 3.
My profile is HERE
Thanks so much
Yesterday, after a night where insomnia got the best of me, I woke up at 7:30am and went at Uni for a lesson from 10am till 1pm, it was pretty interesting because our teacher called his friend which works in production and distribution of live show in theatres and squares. She's such a smart person, really nice and I loved what she talked about. Once at home, my Friday isn't be so cool, I watched few of tv, organized few stuff for the weekend and at 10pm I already went to bed because I was really really tired!
I just say I slept for 12 hours tonight, I really needed it! Take a look to a fans’ typical Friday night translated through Brit GIFS.
Finally off work. I hate that job…
My friends really expect me to go out tonight?
Oh who are you kidding you’ve planned this since last Friday
Time to get ready
Ok, I’m ready!
I hate what I’m wearing.
Pre-party at your friends before the club
You’ve arrived to the club
Instantly run into someone wasted
You know you won’t be that sloppy tonight
You laugh cause you lie
Some guy at the club mouthed “fag” to you.
You get a better look at him
Then a roided out 48-year-old wants to buy you a drink
Roided out 48-year-old’s just as ugly friend thinks he can step in and say hi
You’re over it – time to hit the dance floor
DJ starts playing Lady Gaga
You lock eyes with your new potential boyfriend
LOL you remember you’re at a club
You say hi to him anyway
He’s dumb as fuck
You’re over it and feeling the Vodka music now.
You’re officially drunk
Like, really drunk
Like, you DGAF drunk
Your friends suggest it’s time to go home cause you’re doing this
Fuck that, you have glorious beer goggles on and you’re gonna go home with someone you’ll regret on Saturday
He takes you back to his place in BFE and you love every song on his playlist cause… you’re drunk
Five minutes in he’s finished
You’re over it anyway
Must. Escape. Now.
You’re in your bed. Heaven.
Mortified about your one night stand the next morning
Seriously, what the fuck
Search his Facebook because he can’t be that bad, right?
But you know what? It’s ok. Because
How did you spend your Friday?
Mondays are a huge hassle for everyone… even though today I wasn't at Uni because in the weekend I've been in my Uni's city because I collaborated for the music for a fashion show, I wanted to stay at home for a while and don't see my Uni's city for a while, I'm really really tired and I need a little break, then I have also to study so, home sweet home!
By the way, let’s see how it could be our typical Monday through the wonderful GIFS of Britney Spears.
7:30 am – Time to wake up.
7:35 am – Wake up to pet licking your face.
8:00 am – Seriously. Wake the fuck up.
8:50 am – Don’t be late. Don’t be late. Don’t be late.
9:00 am – Morning meeting.
9:01 am – Morning meeting.
9:02 am – Morning meeting.
10 am – Co-worker you can’t stand asks how your weekend was.
11:00 am – OK, I’m awake. Let’s get to work.
12:00 pm –
12:30 pm – Co-worker asks you to lunch.
12:45 Faking giving a shit at lunch with your co-worker.
1:00 pm – Back at work and your boss asks ‘how was lunch?’
1:10 pm – Overhearing a co-worker gossip about how ~drunk they got this weekend.~
1:11 pm – You know you were drunker.
2:00 pm – Chug that 5-hour energy!
3:00 pm – They want that project done by when?!
4:30 pm – Almost 5.
5:00 pm – FREEDOM!
5:01 pm – Boss asks you to finish one last thing. ‘It’ll just take a minute.’
6:05 pm – and one more for good measure.
You can do it! Friday is just around the corner…
How did you spent or are you spending this Monday?
Even though a bit in late, here I am with the recap of DSDS episode 18 aka 4th live show.
The 7 contestants perform with a German medley on "Lila Wolken" by Materia and "Ein Stern" by Dj Oetzi.
The theme of the show is just German songs.
The hosts introduce the judges and Mateo rocks with a ginger wig in honor of Andrea Berg XD
Of course Bill and Tom are always so stunning and Dieter wears a Christian Dior suit. Wow!
Let's go with the show and the performances.
[if you want to check the whole episode, click HERE - thanks RTL.de]
Lisa is the first. In the intro video we see the girl rehearsing + what happened in the previous show and she has Susan's help for the correct German pronounce. Anyone knows Lisa's origin? Probably she's from Austria or Switzerland, because her accent is a bit different.
The song choice is "Elektrisches Gefuehl" by Juli (I love this band)
Mateo compliments with Lisa for her hairstyle but even though the performance wasn't so bad, she can do better and it wasn't one of her bests.
As usual when twins have to talk, stupid fans have to scream like strangled chickens -.-
Def it has to be really embarassing for Tom or for Bill trying to express a comment while a group of strangled chickens scream so loud. Please, let them doing their job for once!
Tom thinks the song choice and the performance was good.
Bill has a microphone problem so the first part of his comment isn't recognizable :( but in general he wasn't so impressed about Lisa and the same for Dieter.
AHI AHI AHI (just for reminding Dieter haha)
Before to see the next performance, there's a really funny video about the contestants invited by Olivia Jones in her club and they met her drag queens friends.
The funny fact is that, apart the female contestants were like a Maracaibo performance haha that it's pretty normal, Olivia and her friends make dress up also the male: Erwin as Prince Charming and Tim as Snow White. Definitely the best hahah with beard and socks hahah THUMB UP! RESPEKT!!!
Ricardo is the second to perform.
In the intro video we see the boy coming back home and embracing his family (mom, his two lil bros, his grandma...).
His song choice is "Sie Sieht Mich Nicht" by Xaiver Naidoo.
Mateo compliments for the vibrato and for his sweet family, also Tom adds great words for Ricardo saying anything worked perfectly.
Bill: "Your family is so sweet and I really love your vocals!"
Dieter: "Awesome performance and wonderful song" and I'm agree with Dieter. Xaiver Naidoo is an amazing artist, I love his voice and Ricardo did an amazing performance!
Tim is the next one and we hope this time the performance goes fine since the last time he had few problems.
The boy performs on "Tage wie diese" by Die Toten Hosen.
Mateo: "Amazing voice" and he compliments for his voice.
Tom has few problems to understand Tim's outfit and he expresses his doubts without fears hahah
and also Bill seems to don't like it a lot but Dieter spens good words for Tim's performance.
Ok, Raul is every live show more ridicolous hahah now he's dressed up like a Tyrolese and meets Beatrice's mom hahah that woman is totally crazy, I adore her hahaha
So we are ready to a bit of schlager? In the intro video Beatrice tries few outfits for the live show and then she says to want surprising the jury. Mmmh we all are curious.
The song choice is "Kuess mich, halt mich, liebe mich" by Ella Endlich: a lovely ballad, no schlager tonight. The atmosphere is really sweet and reflects Beatrice's sweetness.
I really loved this performance.
Mateo finally takes out his wig XD he thinks the performance wasn't at 100%% because something missed.
Tom compliments with her because she's able to sing from schlager to alligalli and stuff and this time the performance was really good just with a tree.
Bill liked it even though probably it wasn't one of her best and Dieter thinks Beatrice has this power in her eyes, with just a blick she enchants the camera and she really reflects her emotions when she's singing.
She's so lovely, she has that beautiful and bright smile. It's impossible don't love her!
Erwin is the next one.
The last time he really risked to leave the competition and also the judges didn't support him. Who knows if this time his talent will be back?
"Engel" by Ben is the song choice.
Mh, not at all. I mean, doesn't need to perform showing your naked chest, first because the jury is all male and then because you are there for singing and this is what Dieter will say him after the performance. He should sing, sing, sing: rehearsing his voice more than his body because once again it reminded his auditions and Recall where Erwin showed his talent and to have a great voice but it seems disappear now. Maybe because he's fell in love?
Mateo also apologizes with Erwin but the performance wasn't good and Tom says him: "You can do better".
In general, once again, the judges have the same opinion about Erwin.
It's Susan turn. After a bad performance, finally we can enjoy a real talent.
After Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and David Guetta, I'm curious to know what she's going to sing.
In her intro video she explains that in the next show she's going to realize one of her dream about the hairstyle. Thanks to able hairdresser, she changes few different style with amazing wig and with a blue one goes to the other contestants who are really impressed about the transformation haha cute!
"Mena" is the song choice.
Mateo before to express his opinion tries to imitate her haha so cool man!!!
As usual, he spends amazing words for her. "Awesome performance" he says "I hope you and Ricardo go in final" yeah I'm agree. They are amazing.
Tom is always impressed after Susan's performances and he's almost speechless and he doesn't find the right words for describe her, he just can say: "BRAVO!" and compliments with the woman.
Tonight Susan really rocks and not only for her talent but also for the outfits. That pair of shoes is awesome and Susan quotes Bill saying he's able to wear them.
Bill immediately compliments for the outfit and for the whole performance and Dieter too, having a question for Bill about the shoes because you have to be really athletic for walk in these shoes haha you are too old Dieter for that shoes XD
Before the last performance, Raul asks Erwin how he feels after his performance and the boy appears sad, well you just have to focus on what you have to do, it's not difficult, man!
By the way, Simone is the last one to perform.
In the intro video, we see his lovely mommy bringing him a huge Easter egg and a typical Italian Easter dessert called "colomba" aka "dove" because it has the shape of a dove, typical Easter symbol, peace's symbol.
"My mom is all for me. I wouldn't be nobody without her" Simone says.
The song choice is "Bilder von dir" by Laith Al-Deen. [it's amazing, I love it]
Mateo tells him that few parts weren't perfect but he did a good performance and he hopes the boy goes in final with Ricardo and Susan.
Also the other judges spend good words about him saying he sung well even though Dieter wants Simone looses a little bit more on stage.
Before to know who has to leave the show, Alexander Klaws, the very first DSDS winner performs with his new single.
Waiting for the envelope with the results, the judges express their thoughts.
Mateo thinks Ricardo and Susan deserve the final and for him Erwin is out.
Also Tom thinks Erwin has to leave and Bill adds Tim's name, while Dieter thinks Simone has to leave.
While Nazan and Raul reveal who's going through the next live show, Bill and Dieter start to laugh because Tim and Erwin passed so Bill, Tom and Mateo's forecasts aren't right HAHAHAHA
Unfortunately Simone has to leave. I'm so sorry!
I hoped for Lisa or Erwin, definitely Erwin has to leave. He can't be compared to Susan or Ricardo.
What do you think about Simone's elimination?
Which is your favorite performance/moment of the show?
I thought to write a new blog about "All Star Month" since I felt inspired.
This time I chose to talk about German music, in particular about an amazing girl band, unfortunately not together anymore but that I still love a lot.
Thanks to Tokio Hotel, in 2007 I started to close to German music more than before. Before to know them, I only listened Samy Deluxe, Rammstein, Nena and I knew about Alphaville, Falco, Kraftwerk, Andrea Berg and Helene Fischer for German music, from 2007 I discovered: Silbermond, Juli, Nevada Tan, Sido, Cassandra Steen, Jimi Blue, Xaiver Naidoo, Luttemberger Klug and Monrose (probably I missed few artists...).
And Monrose are the girl band I wanna talk about in this blog.
[from left: Senna, Bahar and Mandy]
The story of Monrose starts with the German talent show POPSTARS, a sort of school for find great singers to lunch in German area, able also to dance and entertain on a stage. It's the 5th edition and after the NO ANGELS brokeup, the first famous German girlband, the teutonic country needed to new angels, like said the subtitle of the show.
After several months, three girls have been chose. and on November 23, 2006 Monrose were born.
Senna Guemmour (December 28, 1979), half German and half Tunisian; Bahar Kizil (October 5, 1988), half German and half Turkish and Mandy Grace Capristo (March 21, 1990) of Italian origin are the new German angels.
Their voice are awesome: Senna studied also hip hop and Mandy is considered the German Beyonce for her powerful voice.
On December 1, 2006 they release their first single "Shame", an amazing ballad and it's something of new. It's hard to debut with a ballad, usually all the artists chooses a catchy song, usually dance with easy beats and not a ballad, it's a hazzard but the three girls are really talent and the song reaches the first place in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Poland and so their first album "Temptation"
The year later they release the second album "Strictly Physical", the first single as the same name of the album and I have to say that I heard it in radio also in Italy when I was at Deichmann shoes store in my city and I was like: OMG These are Monrose! I was really happy!
In 2008 arrives their third album "I Am" and two years later "Ladylike" recorded in New York after several problems with the Warner, their record labels which accused the girls to don't have sold a lot of copies with "I Am" so the girls work their butt of for their fourth and last album.
"Like a Lady", "This Is Me" and "Breathe You In" are the three singles extracted from this album.
Exactly four years later the three girls announce their break-up not because they didn't work well together, they were like sisters but because record label discussion and also because they expressed more than once the wish to work as solists.
Mandy last year released her first solo album called "Grace". Two singles came out "The Way I Like It" produced by David Jost (same Tokio Hotel producer) and "Closer".
Also Bahar recorded few new songs like "Daheim".
I really hope one day to can see them live, as solo artists and why not, maybe in a reunion.
They really catched my heart and every time I listen their cds I feel a little bit lonely because they brokeup as girlband but I could never ever stop to listen them since they are amazing, beautiful, talent and so nice.
I advice to all of you to listen their songs and buy their music, they are sooo cool and they can sing pop, dance, ballad, r'n'b in a great way!
If you are an open-mind like me about music and you always like to discover and listen new artists, well Monrose are the perfect example.
I listen tons of different artists and I'm not afraid to say it, I think if you listen more than an only one genre or arist help you a lot, for sharing stuff, talk with a lot of different people, comparing, discuss and judge.
Third live show is here to come.
[Check out all the videos HERE - thanks RTL.de]
Bill posts on Twitter/Facebook account a little backstage’s pic of the jacket is going to wear. WOW!
It’s time to DSDS.
Nazan and Raul present the judges. Bill and Tom are always more stunning every live show, Mateo is so cute and Dieter, well he’s the poptitan eheh
“Don’t Stop The Party”/”Feel This Moment” is the medley the candidates perform as intro since the theme of this episode is about “PARTY”.
The hosts give the phone-codes for voting the eight contestants and after a little recap of the last episode in which we have seen Maurice leaving the show leaving all the other guys impressed, we can start the party.
Simone is the first one. In the intro-video, the boy watches few videos from his fans, there are also two Italian girls, yeah, ok they are there for him. BUAAHA they are there for Bill and Tom. There are also two from Belgium.
The song choice for him is “Can’t Hurry Love” by Phil Collins.
Mateo and Tom say him to be a great singer. Bill adds he did a super performance but Dieter doesn’t seem agree with the other judges and a “booh” raises from the audience.
Simone talks in Italian asking to his Italian fan in Germany to vote for him. HOW CUTE!
Tim is the second one.
If the last time he made a little mistake during the performance but he rocked as well, this time the judges seem impressed by his performance on “Balada” by Gusttavo Lima. Obviously, that isn’t a song -.-
For Mateo the song was too much hard for him since in Portuguese and also for Tom the song wasn’t right for him.
Ricardo is the next to perform on “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish Child Mafia.
Bill loves this song and he thinks it’s the perfect song for him, also Tom appreciated the song choice.
Mateo compliments with Ricardo saying he’s his fav and liked how he entertained the audience.
Dieter dislikes the outfit though hahah yeah, it’s not really cool XD
It’s Egli time and her schlager.
“1000 Mal Belogen” by Andrea Berg is her song choice. Even though schlager is not my genre I like listening her singing on this style. She’s so cute and always with a huge smile on her face.
Bill is the one who spends the best words for Beatrice saying she’s perfect, really professional and an artist.
Dieter picked the phone call by Andrea Berg. She says to be a Beatrice fan and compliments with her, the girl thanks her in tears. Wow such a honour!
Nazan after few performances show how’s going the ratings in different cities: they picked different cities like Berlin, Cologne and the chart changes in each city.
Timo is the next one.
“Viva Colonia” byHöhner is his song choice. The intro was cool, really symphonic and gothic but the rest, ehm NO! Too much schlager and German popular of festival haha not for me! XD
I’m still impressed about what he was doing in the intro video with Ricardo, Erwin and Tim, or better I didn’t understand well what they were doing. OK xD
The best moment is the Bill and Tom’s face when Tim comes to them with the dancers hahah BOW TO THE TWINS!!!
If this is their “let’s party”… ehm, ok… I have another idea of party XD
Mateo compliments with Timo for have done a great performance giving the 100% on stage since it’s a party theme episode and the boy is happy and glad to hear that.
They show a slo-mo of the epic twins moment with Timo hahaha As Mateo uses to say: RESPEKT!
Lisa’s the next to perform.
In the intro video we can see her lovestory with Erwin, the girl also says to have met few Erwin fans saying: “Erwin is mine!” buahaha LOL XD ok…
“I Follow Rivers” by Lykke Li is the song choice.
Mateo doesn’t seem so impressed. For him she had to be more entertainer as there were tons of people on stage. Tom is agree with Mateo but Bill and Dieter has the same opinion. Dieter thinks she has been fantastic!
Erwin performs on “Dj Got Us Falling In Love”, once again Usher. Damn, Usher is hard to sing and Erwin continues to sing him and obviously… he can’t sing high notes, he can’t breathe right and he goes off-key!
The whole jury seems to be agree with me.
Mateo: “the only thing I loved about your performance is your tshirt!” Mateo wants he tries to change his style and singing other songs.
Also Tom says the same, and as Timo, the song choice was really hard!
Bill reminds when he sung in the auditions and he was great then during Curaçao he was a catastrophe.
Susan is the last one and let me say, she saved the show. There were just few amazing performances tonight and one is hers!
She’s so beautiful, oh God! And I love how confident she is on stage. She’s perfect!
Her song choice is “She Wolf” by SIA ft. David Guetta.
Damn, she sung it thousand times better than the original!
And also all the jury spends awesome words for her, how they could say something wrong against her? She’s a TALENT!
I hope she wins the show!
Ok, it’s time to vote and then we’ll discover how’s going to leave tonight.
Tom’s favs: Beatrice, Ricardo and Simone.
Bill’s favs: Beatrice, Simone and Ricardo. And he thinks Erwin, Timo or Tim leaves tonight
Dieter’s fav: Susan and thinks Timo has to leave.
Tim passes. Ok, the song of tonight wasn’t a song but he’s a great singer.
Well, it’s pretty obvious Susan goes through the next live show. She’s PERFECT! And also Ricardo, yay! I’m happy!
Beatrice can reach Tim, Susan and Ricardo. She passes ;)
YAAAY Simone! I love that he exclaims each time: “EVVAI!” aka “YAY” ehehe
Lisa goes through the next live show too.
As I predicted (and Bill too) Timo and Erwin are the last ones and just one will go through.
Erwin remains… well next time is yours man!
Timo’s journey ends here!
Are you agree with German ratings?
Which is your best performance / moment of the show?
Buzznet always has the best ideas for contests, assignments and stuff, this is why I love this place so much.
I think this is such an amazing project and it's really hard for me to pick one an only one thing I love since I love TONS of things, the most different things ever but this time I would try to don't be banal, obvious and boring so I tried to chose something I love probably not all of you know.
Well, I really love watching tv shows, even though I CAN'T watch any single of them, since I was young I tried to follow as much as I could and obviously I fell in love with them almost immediately. Of course I grow up and not all the tv shows are eternal so most of them are ended, others I'm just watching right now in rerun, I have a few in my list as favorite but I have to say that there will never be another tv show as CHARMED.
The first episode, in Italy, has been broadcast on Decemeber 22, 1999.
I was 9 years old and I completely fell in love with this tv show.
For who doesn't know what talks about, it's the story of three sisters Piper (Holly Marie Combs), Prue (Shannen Doherty) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) who discover to have magical powers (also their mother and Grams were witches) and they will have to fight against demons and warlocks. Thanks to the magical powers their lives reunite and they became the Charmed ones, the Power of Three. When Prue will die, Piper and Phoebe will discover to have a step-sister, Paige (Rose McGowan), born from the relation between their mother and her whitelighter.
I have to admit that I was completely obsessed with this show, and I still am haha
I know each episode by heart and now I'm watching them again for the millionth time.
It's the second female tv show most long-lived of the history. It had the first place till last year, when Desperate Housewives stole the top with just two episodes more than Charmed.
I love this tv show because is super funny, never boring, original, fresh and with a great story.
It's not easy to be creative after eight seasons, trying to introducing new characters and keeping the main ones always in the centre of the story.
I remember I used spending hours with my best friend watching the episodes, playing with the official boardgame, creating our personal quiz about the show, dubbing the episodes, writing a notebook (that I still have) about the show with episodes reviews, photos and stuff...
I really hope to have the time to buy the comics about the 9th season, the novels and one of the boardgames about Charmed that I still miss.
My favorite character is Piper Halliwell.
This is one of my favorite quotes about her in the 18th episode of season two called: "Chick Flick"
I love this character because I reflect a lot in her. Even though she's a witch and married with her whitelighter Leo (Brian Krause) she wants to live the most normal life possible and sometimes she wants to renounce to her power for being a normal woman.
I love her character because she's such romantic, she's married with an angel and she's really stronger, even though sometimes she seems scared, but especially after Prue's death, she becomes the older sister and she has tons of responsabilities more than before.
I love also her powers: freezing the time and also exploding things.
It's impossible for me to choose an only one favorite episodes, even though I always say it's: "The Day the Magic Died" (5X15) when Piper's first baby born because it's super funny, exciting and emotional.
I love also: "Sin Francisco" (3X18):
"Chick Flick" (2X18):
"Sense & Sense Ability" (5X20)
My CHARMED stuff:
Charmed season 1-8
Charmed special "The Women Of Charmed"
Charmed The Best Of CD [made by another Charmed fan I met on a Charmed forum several years ago]
Various Italian magazines, posters, cds with photos/videos and stuff
Personal notebooks about Charmed episodes
Personal notebooks about Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs
When I was in high school when I have fashion&design lessons we always went in laboratory and we had to wear the smock, I drew on the back Piper, Phoebe and Paige (I don't know where I put the smock otherwise I'd show it to you)
For me Charmed will always be the best show ever and I simply can't get enough.
I just finish my blog saying you:
"The Power Of Three will set us free"
The contestants open the show with Scream&Shout. Awww so cool, their version is good but the original rocks! The judges come on stage with "I'm sexy and I know it" HAHA tom is really really cool with few dreads in his hair and Bill is always fucking stunning!
Nazan and Raul gives the usual codenumbers for voting the contestants.
[if you wanna check the whole episode, click HERE - thanks RTL.de]
Maurice is the first to perform.
in the introduction-video, we see what happened last week and the boy rehearsing and talking about the feeling he proved during the first show.
I love the DSQUARED2 jacket he wears *_*
The song choice is "Love's Divine" by Seal. I've never heard this song before and Maurice sung it sooo good. I love his voice!
Mateo: I'm the gross bitch, here! Hahah he mentions about Scream&Shout and about Maurice singing will.i.am part. Then he compliments for his voice. Plus: he's a great entertainer and a great stage presence.
I can't stand the fact there are some bitches which are screaming like Dexter Morgan is killing them. PLEASE, SHUT UP! Now I understand why GRUNDY won't stupid Tokio Hotel's "fans" inside the Coloneum.
By the way, also this time Maurice is idolized a lot by the jury. Tom, Bill and Dieter spend awesome words for him, he has to be super proud!
The boy asks people to vote for him :P
Why should we afraid that Raul is not with you Nazan on stage? Sometimes I simply don't understand these phrases, personally I find them pathetic -.- by the way, he's in contestants lounge and talk with Pietro Lombardi and Sarah, two ex-contestants of the past edition. But, all these contestant don't have a house? A lot of them are always there, also during auditions XD
Lisa is the second one.
In the intro-video we see her to be the first to pass in the Top 10 thanks ratings plus her friends bring her car so she can drive around Cologne.
The song choice is "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones.
Not bad, even though she's not one of my favs.
Mateo is impressed and compliments with her, such a great comeback of the girl!
Also for Tom she's a surprise tonight. He tells her to have sung so good with a great interpretation. Bill starts to talk with a: wow! And then adds other compliments.
Last but not least, Dieter says during Curaçao she was good but not one of the bests but today she did a really good performance.
Erwin is the third to perform.
I hope he sings good today! The last two times he didn't in my opinion!
In the intro-video we see Erwin and Lisa in sweet acts. Is this love? Wait a minute but Erwin wasn't linked to Jennifer in some way during Curaçao? Mah...
The song choice is "I Won't Let You Go" by James Morrison.
Ok, tonight I recognize Erwin singing. AMEN! Welcome back Erwin!
Raul asks Tim to spend few words for Erwin, the boy says he has a great voice.
Mateo tells him: "this time you did thousand times better than the last time!" oh, I'm glad to don't be the only one to have thank it!
Tom: I think James is better than you... *burps* hahaha sorry! XD also in DSDS he burped and yaaaay this is Tom!!!!
Bill is glad he sung it better even though he definitely can better next time, yay, it's obvious, but luckily he didn't fail like the past times.
Dieter mentions Lisa too, and that fact that Pietro Lombardi and Sarah now are engaged and soon they get married and this could happen also for Erwin and Lisa. By the way, he says Erwin: "Chris Brown is gone, now there's James Morrison!" XD even though for him he did a great performance!
Susan is the next one.
In the intro-video over to see a little recap of the first show, we see Susan reheasing with her vocal coach.
The song choice is "Open Arms" by Journey, by the way the version should be the one sung by Mariah Carey.
I could listen Susan for hours. God, she's perfect!
Mateo compliments with her for the awesome voice. If Maurice also dances over singing, she is entertaining as well with her voice, full of emotions.
Tom adds other compliments saying she's perfect. Bill is glad she dedicated this song to her husband, it's so sweet and also he expresses his compliments.
Dieter: "she's perfect!" and he continues saying: "in this season we have a woman power!"
It’s Timo’s turn.
During the first live show his performance wasn’t extremely good in my opinion, I hope this time he does it better! In the intro video, he meets his choreographer for preparing his new performance. But the problems continue and Timo cries during the rehearsals.
I really really love the scenography behind him during “Let Her Go” by Passenger.
Mateo says Timo is so sweety but he can do better and also Tom tells him the same.
For Dieter, Timo does better and better each show but he should be more loose on stage and not freeze on the show. The song was great and the vocals were really good. Bill thinks he’s sweet too.
It’s time for Simone’s performance.
I’m so curious about his song choice, the last time he sung really good even though Dieter didn’t like his outfit hahah so in the introduction video we see Simone in the dressing room choosing his outfit for the next live show.
“Se Bastasse Una Canzone” by Eros Ramazzotti is his song choice, yaaay he sings in Italian. The title means “If A Song Was Enough”
He makes me smile, he’s super nice!
Bill smiles too while he’s performing :P
Mateo: “your voice is awesome! You are an amazing entertainer!”
Tom is agree with Mateo: “the outfit is cool, the song is good. For me it’s all good!” haha
Also Bill thinks the performance was really good and Dieter compliments for the style: “this style is better than the last time!”
In a little video we see the candidates having fun after the first live show with Olivia Jones.
Let’s see Tim’s performance.
During the first live show he completely rocked, I’m sure he does it again also tonight!
The song’s choice is “When Susannah Cries” by Espen Lind.
Well done Tim, you did another awesome performance for me!
Mateo tells his voice is incredible and compliments with him also about the two amazing songs he sung in these two live shows.
If for Tom was a great performance, for Bill the performance wasn’t so good, or better it didn’t impress him just like the last time and Tim is agree and says the next time he will do better. Dieter tells how he saw his concentration before the performance and also on stage and compliments with him saying his voice is amazing.
Before Beatrice’s performance, Raul lets speak her mom, really really moved and excited and proud of her daughter. The jury laugh so much when she speaks and in the end she kisses Raul hahah
I simply love Beatrice’s smile, in her intro-video she’s so smiley talking about her performance of the last episode and stuff.
Who knows if this time Beatrice will love her schlager’s performance?
Beatrice receives a surprise, her brother meets her after have been in Australia for several months, she starts to cry for happiness. HOW CUTE!
Ok, her song choice is “Ich Will Immer Wieder” by Helene Fischer.
This song is really good, it’s not so much schlager are the others, at least the beat is a little bit different and more pop. I like it eheh
Mateo thinks the performance was “geil” aka amazing and once again, he shows his tshirt with red roses, wore for her heheh he also goes to kiss her. Sweeet!
Tom forgets what he wanna say since Mateo talks too much hahah but then he says: “you make me listen schlager!” and also adds: “the only thing that annoyed me were the dancers in these weird leggings. I saw more “things” than I wanted to see!” hahahah XD
Bill: “I have to say that you are my favorite candidate! Your mom is so sweet, the performance was cool and all was super!”
Dieter says that it’s clear how much she loves schlager, she’s diligent and stuff. She couldn’t do better!
Ricardo is the last one for tonight.
Hahaha it’s so funny that in the intro video we see Maurice acts as a personal trainer for Ricardo since he has a belly too much evident hahah ok, comparing Maurice’s body with Ricardo’s one is like to shot at the ambulance hahaha
By the way, Ricardo sings on “Impossible” by Shontelle. This song is EPIC and Ricardo killed on that stage. I already heard this song on The X Factor USA and always sung it in the best of the way.
Mateo is speechless, he just says: “BRAVO!”. He also adds Ricardo has a great stage’s presence and in the end says: “RESPEKT!”
Tom is always so confident with Ricardo haha also for him the performance was really great. Bill compliments with him, he has just a little thing too say: “this outfit is a little bit too much little for you!” hahaha
Dieter: “Amazing performance, amazing song!”
It’s time to vote your favorite and after a little recap of all the performances we will discover who has to leave the show forever.
But before: Piero and Sarah perform together.
Piero tells which are his favorite in this season: Simone, Ricardo and Erwin.
Mateo thinks is right to applaud for the two hosts and spends few great and sweet words for them, especially for Nazan.
Simone, Ricardo, Erwin, Susan are his favorites.
For Tom the bests are Ricardo and Beatrice.
Bill’s ones are Susan and Ricardo. But also Beatrice. He thinks Maurice or Timo probably leave the show.
Tonight, unluckily, the contestant that has to leave the show is… MAURICE!
Wow, Bill predicted right! He’s magic 8)
I’m so sorry Maurice has to leave, he was really really great!
The jury embraces him. Such a shame L
Are you agree with German ratings?
Which is your favorite performance of tonight?
Here we are with the first live show of DSDS 10th season.
[Check out the whole episode HERE - thanks RTL.de]
Even though I was pretty impressed about the fact Grundy website reported the beginning of the show at 5:30pm while on RTL there was a countdown badge that said the show started at 8:15pm, I was like: what? It should be a live show and then they pre-recorded broadcast?
After several moments while my mind was trying to find a solution, my brilliant brain found that since you don’t have the ticket with you but you have to get it at Coloneum, they spent 2 hours and 45 for coming in all the people and then the show started.
If only it was reported on the website, and not only this fact but tons of others, the organization could be clearer.
By the way…
Nazan and Raul, the two hosts, introduces the preview of the show with the 6 rating-candidates: Lisa, Bjoern, Sarah Joelle, Fairuz, Talina and Simone. Only two of them will go through Top 10. Who will be? We will discover after the break ;)
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
It’s time for DSDS!
The jury comes in. Woooow Bill seems an Ai Yazawa’s character from Paradise Kiss manga. He’s so classy and hot, oh Lordy! But also my brother in law is really really gorgeous. Mateo rocks his usual sunnies and Dieter wears a scarf!
It’s the time of the truth.
With 27,6% the first of the six candidates to go through is Lisa. Totally unexpected!
The second, with 22,1% is Simone. YAAAAAAAY! I’m freaking happy! A little part of Italy in DSDS live show.
Fuck Sarah Joelle, you are the last of the list, hahaha nobody loves you!
Fairuz as usual cries all her tears out, so so pathetic!
By the way, the Top 10 greets the audience with a performance on “What A Feeling?” (Flashdance theme). So cool! Then Nazan and Raul gives the numbers for voting the candidates ;) such a shame I can vote for my favorites!
Susan is the first one.
A little introducing video shows her DSDS journey, her private life with her husband and the time spends with her parents and brother + her performances in pubs.
The song choice is “All By Myself”. She completely rocks!
Mateo calls her Susan Dion haha Tom compliments with her.
Bill says it was the perfect opening for the show. “You sing, play the piano. You are perfect!”
Also Dieter, obviously, spends great words for her!
Raul is in the candidates lounge. Olivia Jones, a drag queen, is the mascotte of the night and it’s been shown a video where the acts introduces Olivia ;)
Timo is the second one.
In the introduction video you can see how has been hard for the boy impressed Dieter and finally during the Recall, the Poptitan spent amazing words for him and not just “it’s an ok performance”.
The song choice is “Viva La Vida”. He’s really nervous though and the song is such hard too.
Mateo hasn’t good words for Timo and Tom is agree “probably you were nervous, there’s the audience..”, Bill tells him that the performance was good but he’s sure the next time will be better.
Beatrice, the Queen schlager of DSDS. In the intro-video, with Heidi music in the background, she milks the cows haha
The song choice is “Ich liebe das Leben” and with a tight red dress she enchants the crowd and caresses Dieter awww cute!
Mateo says she sung good but he wants she sings also other songs and not only schlager; Tom sees she’s having fun and he’s having too with the schlager, even though he never liked it.
Bill tells she’s so natural singing this genre and compliments with her; Tom also adds that Mateo wears red too just like Beatrice and Dieter doesn’t understand why Mateo has to be disagree. Dieter mentions two schlager singers saying they are really famous even though they sing only schlager.
Raul is still in candidates lounge and on RTL’s app are arriving tons of messages from fans.
In the intro-video of Maurice it couldn’t miss his fight with Nora and Jennifer in Curaçao plus he teaches dancing to the kids, how cute!
“Whistle” is the song choice.
Mateo just says: “Absolut HAMMA!” aka “absolutely awesome!”.
Bill idolizes him saying he’s a perfectionist and so professional and Tom adds other compliments.
Dieter: “you have a wonderful voice!”
Erwin is the next one. In his introduction video you can see the boy practicing gym and his DSDS jourìney.
“Next To You” is the song choice.
Once again, his performance isn’t so good, just like the last time in Curaçao and I don’t understand why he passed while Bojan is already out! I mean, Erwin is great, he showed to be great in the auditions and in the first part of Recall but then I don’t know, maybe he’s just nervous, but I didn’t like him in this performance. I know he can do better!
Mateo: “I think Justin Bieber and r’n’b aren’t in your style” and also Tom and Bill are agree.
As usual Dieter says it like it is: “you aren’t Chris Brown from New York, you are Erwin!”
In Nora’s video we know her parents, she’s Arabian.
“Back To Black” is the song choice.
How cute is her mom with the support-board?
Mateo says he’s a huge fan of her voice but Amy Winehouse is hard to sing and she didn’t get her best!
Tom thinks the problem is the song choice, while Bill tries to muffle the situation saying her family is sweet but also for him the performance wasn’t good and the same for Dieter.
Poor Nora! She’s such an amazing singer, I love her! I heard worst performances than her one though!
Ricardo finally can perform in live shows. In his intro-video you can see the broken dream of two years ago when he has been sent home during Recall, but now he can be proud to be here!
“Love Song” is the song choice, played with the piano.
I can say probably Ricardo is the only one who did a great path in DSDS since the auditions. I mean, his voice grow up a lot and I’m so happy for him. I love listen to him singing.
Mateo tells him to have a beautiful voice and compliments also for have played the piano. BRAVO!
Tom says the song is amazing and so the performance and Bill adds: “I can’t say nothing, just PERFECT!” and Dieter spends for him other great words and compliments.
Tim and his bad past with a violent father is reminded in his intro-video and the song choice is “Here Without You” (this song is dedicated to my angel, I love it!)
And def this is in my top 3 of best performances of the night!
Mateo thanks Tim and also says: “I think your voice is sensational!”
Tom thinks this is the best performance of the night (“you are authentic and your voice is perfect”) and Bill thanks Tim for all the emotions he gave and Dieter adds other compliments.
And now it’s time to see the performance of the two candidates saved thanks ratings.
Lisa is the first with “I’m Like A Bird” and the girl receives a lot of compliments from the jury.
I’m not a Lisa fan though.
While Simone, which intro-video has like background music “L’Italiano” by Toto Cutugno, sings “End of the road” and impresses the judges.
Mateo: “ciao fratello” [“hi brother”] GO MATEO GO hahah
The all jury compliments with Simone and Dieter adds: “You gave me a lot of emotions!”
So after a little recap of all the performances is time to vote for your favorite.
Tonight we have the first elimination.
Tom and Bill thinks the first to leave will be Erwin, Timo or Nora; Dieter expresses his vote for his favs: Ricardo and Nora.
