Dying at TIm Urban almost making top 10  We are all hoz for a pretty face

I've decided the next topic I'll rank is my favorite swan songs. To be honest, this one is kind of difficult to do because there are some that don't have videos posted online. With that said, I'll com

I agree. You did give time and even though I forgot to submit any performances, I respect the opinions of people on this blog and respect your list even if we disagreed in spots.    @blackfield

Actually, it may have been $13, but my mind went to $15 for some reason. :haha:  My friend bought the tickets for a group of us, so I didn't know the cost until it was time to pay up. :dead: I never choose night time showings myself, so was in for a shock with that price. Yes! I heard good things about the vaccines. My brother is a nurse and keeps us in the loop on this. :yes: I sure hope so. LOL yes, that's why I mentioned not drinking toooo much. :giggle: I tend to drink a lot of water in general so I have to restrain myself during movies. :haha: 

 

Excited to see it! Thanks so much. :hug: 

 

Yeah, I had soooo many lists from over the years. 😢 It breaks my heart thinking about it.

Yes, although we can include Jesse in there since you knew he was coming and I didn't post a clue. :haha: I would love to read the Archie comics sometime! Do you ship Archie with Betty or Veronica? :shiftywave:  Haha the matching is fun! Maybe soooo.... but we'll see who you post first. :giggle: 

I love animals in general, but am definitely a dog person when it comes down to it. I should clarify because my family adopted the most wonderful puppy (the one I mentioned showing Hunter a photo of), but since I live on my own now, I want to adopt animals to live with me too. Just haven't gotten to it yet. 😢 But thank you! :wub:  Haha it doesn't surprise me, but I love the ~dark feel of the show.

I agree and thanks! 

Yeah. :(  I am thankful for that! Glad you agree with me on the age too. :haha: I know teenagers are often portrayed by actors older than that. Oops, Cole is actually the oldest of the core four, but the five year gap between him and KJ is a bit of a surprise. 

LOL I would feel a bit weird and embarrassed posting photos like that. :dead: It's all good though. Puppies are the best! :wub: 

They sometimes get some flack for those, but I think they're fun. :giggle: Haha yes! 

They might appear for you. 😮 I have to be prepared. :giggle: Oh yay! As long as you like KJ more. :giggle:  But I agree! :dead: 

❤️ :hug:

Oh good, I definitely need more help! :haha: I am the worst at this. Who is an underdog? I feel it could be anyone. :dead: WAIT. Alicia Keys has a song called "Underdog." Could it be her?!  

LOL, I remember the first time I went to a night time showing and was surprised to see how much it was. :haha: It's cool to see your brother is a nurse; hopefully he's been able to get some rest during this time. Either way, having someone who knows what's going on is a nice touch. Me too. Oh, I see. Unfortunately, I've made that mistake but was able to hold on until the movie was over. It's always great to drink a lot of water; I especially do so after having a bout with kidney stones a few years ago.

 

Happy to see you are! 😄 You're welcome. 🤗

 

:hug:

 

 

So that makes me three out of four then? :haha: I believe there was a site that had some of them posted. I'll post a link in here if I can find it, but it's been a few years since I've visited it. Hopefully it still exists. Ah yes, the eternal question. :haha:  I think Betty would be best for him, but he strings her along and only uses her as a backup in case things with Veronica falls apart. :/ We'll see if you can match your next one with mine.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. It's nice to see your family adopt a puppy. Are animals allowed where you live? If so, you may very well get yours one day. :yes: You're welcome. Maybe if I watch some more of it, I'll get used to the dark feel of it.

👍

This is good to see. As for the age thing, this appears to be common in these types of shows. There were some jokes during the original Beverly Hills 90210 show that the actors portraying the teens where in their 30s. :haha: Oh, so Cole is actually the oldest of the core four. 😮 The five year gap does appear to be surprising thinking about it.

Yeah, that's understandable. We won't want to be judged now, do we? :haha: Yes they are! ❤️

I see. I can see how they can come off as fun, especially if one is into that thing. :yes:

I didn't say they would appear, but never say never. :giggle: Maybe I like Cole more (just playing around, I liked them both equally though that may not be what you want to hear). 😛 

👍

 

 

Maybe... Here is #2:


A Gordon Ramsey show

@Crisis When will the ranking resume? 

 

I have to take one more mid-term tonight. If all goes well, I may resume it this evening. Since I've had some downtime at work, I manage to knock out a few write-ups. :yes:

15. David Archuleta - We Can Work It Out

I know there are two faithful followers of this thread who are huge Archie fans, so I’m sure what the reactions will be to this placement. :unsure: I liked Archie well enough during his season; however, he had some poor performances, with the main ones being his up-tempo numbers. His Top 12 showing of We Can Work It Out was one of them. During the pre-performance video, he expressed concerns about the performance because he wasn’t all that familiar with The Beatles’ catalog. Nonetheless, he picked this song because he knew Stevie Wonder covered it. Unfortunately, the performance couldn’t have gone worse for him if he tried. There were multiple times when he forgot the lyrics, plus he moved around awkwardly on stage. It was easy to see he was neither comfortable with the song nor the bigger stage. Fortunately, he was able to adjust to it the following weeks. While this is one of my least favorite Archie performances, I preferred it to some of his others, and I enjoy it as a guilty pleasure. Thus, I decided to place it somewhere in the middle of this ranking. Also, this was the performance that was submitted twice, anyone want to wager who submitted this? :P

 

14. Kris Allen - What's Going On

Here we have the second of Kris’ submissions, and both of them happen to be from the S8 Finale. They were two of his weakest showings though none of them were my least favorite of his. With everything said, What’s Going On is definitely the better of the two submissions for this ranking. To start with, I will say Kris didn’t sound all that bad on the song. However, the problem I had with it - if you can call it that - is that when I think of the song, I think of the soul and emotions Marvin poured into it. It was as if you could feel the frustration coming from him. Kris’ version, however, appeared to lack these things, which severely limited the song’s impact. It was too smooth for my liking. Moreover, I didn’t care too much for the acoustic arrangement in this performance because once again it took away from the song’s meaning and impact. Having said all of this, this performance is still better than some of the other submissions and therefore, it ended up in the upper half of this ranking.

 

13. Hollie Cavanagh - Flashdance...What A Feeling

Hollie is one of the most adorable Idol contestants. I liked and rooted for her during the season, especially after she was criticized for Perfect. Prior to that, however, she had a three week stretch in which she had some poor performances after a strong start. The worst of the three was probably her Top 8 showing of Flashdance...What A Feeling. This was Hollie’s first up-tempo performance of the season thus the first time she really moved on stage. It was obvious she wasn’t used to moving around much because she looked awkward and unsure of herself during all of the transitions. Also, I think this affected her vocally because she didn’t sound as strong as she usually did. When it comes down to everything, I think she simply overthought the performance. Having said all of that, it appears she gave it her all during the performance, so though the performance itself wasn’t all that good, it wasn’t from a lack of effort. In addition, though it’s my least favorite performance of hers, it has grown on me over time. Overall, I think this is a good spot for it all things considered.

 

12. Ashley Hess - Sir Duke

Ashley was one of my S17 favorites and is one of my all-time favorite non-finalists. I enjoyed all of her performances to some extent and even voted for her after Fix You after not voting in years with the hope she would be voted into the finals. Unfortunately, that was not the case and thus, she had to sing for a Wildcard spot. :/ Sadly, she picked a poor song in Sir Duke. This song would’ve been perfect for a victory performance; however, it does no one any favors for a chance at a finals spot. With everything said, Ashley showed a different side of herself with her moving around on stage more, and she appeared to be having fun. Also, during my re-watch she didn’t sound all that bad, though it was still her weakest performance. It’s just that the three who were picked sounded better. I had a feeling Uché and Alyssa were locks, but I thought Ashley had a chance for the third spot. It’s just that Dimitrius gave a better performance. Regardless, it was disappointing to not see her in the finals, but it was understandable after her performance. :( Still, I felt this was good enough to rank in the upper half.

 

11. Lauren Alaina - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

As @miss denise can attest to, I was not a Lauren fan during S10. With that said, she has grown on me over the years. It’s just that I didn’t care for most of her performances and felt she got off easy when it came to the judges’ criticism. As far as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman is concerned, this one is in the middle of the pack for me in terms of her performances. It was actually one of my least favorites of hers and planned on placing it somewhere near the bottom of this ranking. During my re-watch, however, I realized I liked it a lot more than I was expecting to. I have to say this was an unexpected song choice from her because I expected her to sing a song from a country artist rather than the Queen of Soul. With that said, though I like it more now, I don’t think she was mature enough to sing a song of this caliber, nor did she have the voice to really do the song justice at the time (I don’t doubt she can do so now). Finally, the outfit was hideous, and I thought Pia’s was bad. 😒 It looked like she was wearing a diaper. 😐 Regardless, this number from Lauren went from near the bottom to just missing the Top 10.

A Gordon Ramsey show

 

 

Yeah, that was a rude awakening. :lmao: Thanks. My brother texted me some pictures the other night of him playing video games so I think he's found a work/life balance. :giggle: Oh no, but at least you didn't have to miss any of the movie. I would hate that. Oh that's right, you did share about having kidney stones before. :( Ugh, so sorry. :hug: 

 

Thanks. :hug: 

 

I'll reply to this first part now without the spoiler tags. Yes, you are three for four so far. :giggle: Oh, if you are able to share the website, that would be fun. ❤️ Interesting response here! I think that love triangle is much more prominent in the comics (from what I've heard) than the show, although there have been hints of it. I'm not huge on Varchie and thought Betty's crush on him was cute at the beginning, so I might prefer them (although I also love them as best friends). Basically, Archie needs to be with a new character played by me. :giggle: 

 

Love that. ❤️ Yes, we are allowed to have animals! I would ideally want to have money saved up before adopting though to ensure I have enough to care for them. :( One of my friends thought I was weird for that. Oh, I hope so and let me know if you do!

 

It is pretty common and lol at the 30 year olds playing teens. :giggle: He is and yeah, I wouldn't have known. :haha: Although one of my favorites is how the core cast of girls from Pretty Little Liars have a 11 year age gap despite playing teens all the same age. :giggle: 


It's a no judgement zone. :giggle:  At least from us. 
 

I love musicals! :bobo: 

 

I'll keep my eyes open. :shiftywave:  NOOOOOOOO. 😭  But lol it's okay. 

 

 

 

You said you'd post more clues unless someone got it, so I must be wrong. :lmao: Hmm this is interesting.... the connection I came up with is his show Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted... and Sara Bareilles has a song called Uncharted. :unsure: And then when I did a search I found several articles calling her an underdog regarding her Grammy nominations. But most of all!!!! She has a song called Weirdos Make Great Superheroes and Underdog (the cartoon) is a superhero! :shock: I feel like I'm a panelist on The Masked Singer putting all these things together. :dead:  But am I right? 😮

15. David Archuleta - We Can Work It Out: Awww. :blushingwave:  I'm glad it's at least this high even though I would have it higher. I loved all of his performances for different reasons. I know he messed up some lyrics here, but I still enjoyed it. :blushingwave: I like this style of song on his and the studio recording highlights his abilities much better. I never thought it was that bad. :broken: I'm glad it at least ranked in the top half. LOL at asking who are the two that submitted this. :dead: 

14. Kris Allen - What's Going On: Not two of my submissions back to back. 😮  lol I actually thought this would be higher and am kind of surprised. This was a good performance and it was hard for me to submit as a "worst" one. I again loved all of his performances to some capacity and I guess prefer the songs of any others that might be considered weaker. I see your point about the lack of frustration feeling in it, although I personally love the acoustic arrangement. 

13. Hollie Cavanagh - Flashdance...What A Feeling: I'm also a fan of Hollie, but did not like this performance and would rank it lower. :blushingwave: I don't think her voice could ever really sound bad, but this didn't work for me. I guess it's a combination of the song and all you said about the awkwardness. 

12. Ashley Hess - Sir Duke: I don't mind this performance and thought it was fine. I get that it wasn't really a "fighting" kind of performance and I believe they chose just one that would be either their victory song or the one to compete with? :? Either way, definitely would have gone with something else that would work better. She sang and performed it fine enough though, but it wasn't impactful for the situation. 

11. Lauren Alaina - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman: Not three of my submissions in one set. 😮  I'm being dramatic. :giggle: I am very pleased with how high this ranks, especially since I know you're not a huge Lauren fan. I'm so glad she (and this performance) have grown on you. :wub:  i thought her vocal was good, but I do appreciate you saying she could take it on better now. OMG the diaper comment. We know who was responsible.... :giggle: :dead:

Yeah, I was fortunate but have learned my lesson then. It also helped the movie wasn't that long. :haha: Ugh, that was certainly not a fun time. I would say it was the worst pain I have ever experienced and wouldn't wish it on anyone. :(

 

🤗

 

I'll see if I can find it some time tomorrow. It probably is more prominent in the comics. From what I've seen, a number of fans aren't too big on the Varchie ship and would rather see him with Betty. I'm sure that would be great; however, not only would you have to compete with Betty and Veronica, you would have to watch out for Cheryl Blossom as well. :giggle:

 

That's good you're allowed to have animals. Understandable about having enough money to ensure you can take care of them. My aunt has two dogs and they are getting up there in age, so they need to be looked at more often. Needless to say it isn't cheap. As long as you believe in your dream, that's the main thing that matters. It'll probably be much later down the road, as I have a bunch of other things I need to look at first. :dead:

 

To be fair, a lot of people in their 20s look like they can pass as teens. :haha: That is weird he's the oldest of the core despite looking like he could be the youngest. :haha: Wow at the age gap between the core cast of girls from Pretty Little Liars. 😮 :giggle:

 

Yeah, some of us try to be open minded about most things. :/ :haha:

 

I enjoy a good musical now and then as well. :yes:

 

I won't make any promises. Sorry. 💔 At least I don't dislike him.

 

 

I'll say it's not Sara Bareilles, though that's a good guess and never considered how the clues would come to that conclusion. I did say that I would post up to three clues unless someone got it right before then; however, a previous guess was correct. I just wanted to add an extra clue and will explain their connection as well as the third clue I had in mind when I post that person. I just ask not to say who it is until I post her. 🥺 I'll try to have it up tomorrow. From now on, I'll post all three clues at the same time. This is kind of like The Masked Singer now that I think about it. :haha:

 

I'm about to call it a night, so I'll respond to the comments on the performance some time tomorrow. :yes:

Yes, that is for sure about the health care workers. :yes: Thank goodness for that! Oh my, I am so sorry you had to experience that, but thankfully you made it through and I hope are in good health. :( :hug: 

 

Thanks! It's hard to tell. There are a lot of hardcore Varchie shippers, as well as Barchie... but Bughead is the favorite ship. Lili (who plays Betty) and Cole were dating in real life for a long time, but I believe they broke up now. :(  Not sure how that might affect things on the show. OMG. :dead: Cheryl did make a move on Archie early on, but I don't think that will happen again. I am ready to overtake them all. :wub:  :dead: 

 

Yeah, that was one of the main things I looked for in an apartment. Aww yeah, understandable. 😢 Thank you, that's so kind. ❤️ lol that's okay. :haha: 

 

I know I can. :giggle: I hope I get carded until I'm 60! :wub: :dead:  Haha it is. And LOL that age gap always amazes me. :haha: 

 

That's okay. Aww lol I was just kidding. :blushingwave: I'm fine with you liking them the same. :haha: 

 

 

Oh no, I put so many pieces together just to be wrong again.:lmao: Oh well. OMG it was? 😮  Ahhhh I see. Oh, and now I can match the first clue in two ways from the songs "Underdog" and "Superwoman." 😮  I'm going to try to figure out how this second clue fits now, but of course I will not make an announcement who it is. :haha: Haha yes! At least I got to pretend I was on the show for a bit. :lmao: 

 

That's fine. I gave you so much to respond to. :lmao:

15. David Archuleta- We Can Work It Out It was clear that Archie was not comfortable when singing this song. He forgot the lyrics multiple times, and his vocals weren’t the best either. I thought his voice did sound pretty good during some parts of the song though. 👍 I am pleasantly surprised to see this submission rank this high, as I thought it would be in the first batch. 😅 I’m curious to see what other Archie performances you thought were worse (probably some of my favorites... :/Also, I wonder who the other user is that submitted this song... :lmao: 

 

14. Kris Allen- What’s Going On I actually didn’t mind this performance. I thought Kris showed a ton of ARTISTRY, and while it wasn’t as loud as Adam’s performance, I preferred the more intimate setting. While it’s not my favorite Kris performance, I thought it was much better than his live performance of No Boundaries:giggle: 

 

13. Hollie Cavanagh- Flashdance... What A Feeling - Ooh, Gwen Stefani appears AGAIN!  :giggle: While Hollie is one of the cutest Idol finalists, this performance was not cute. 😬 Yeah, this was NOT a good one for Hollie. It was one of, if not her worst, vocal showing of the season. Her stage presence consisted of walking around the stage in heels, which was not the right energy for the song. I thought Hollie was going to get eliminated after this one, but thankfully she didn’t... 😅

 

12. Ashley Hess- Sir Duke Ah look, one of the best performance of the season shows up. Just goes to show how great of a season Season 17 was. 😅 Anyway, I really enjoyed this performance. While I think Ashley should have picked a song that would fit her strong suit for this round, I felt she did a great job, considering the song choice. Her stage presence was amazing and I feel like she showed a side that a lot of people (including the judges :/) had been asking from her. I think this is a nice spot for this submission. 🙂

 

11. Lauren Alaina- (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman Ugh yes, the outfit and hairstyle were atrocious! 🤢 Was this Lauren’s worst performance? No (somehow the If I Die Young trainwreck managed to escaped this ranking.) Did I like it? Not really. The vocals were average at best, and the performance failed to show off Lauren’s BEAUTIFUL country voice (which is the sole reason why I appreciated her run doing the show.)  The best part of this video is the I ❤️ PIA (and Lauren) poster. :wub:

15. David Archuleta - We Can Work It Out - This should have shown up earlier. There was no connection to the song, or to anything. And yes, he was not comfortable.  I don't know if it's his weakest performance, because ... I believe there were a couple of songs, that were a bit pitchy. I don't remember which ones, but there were.

 

14. Kris Allen - What's Going On - This is a good placement, and to be honest, other than it not being powerful .... I thought he did good with this

 

13. Hollie Cavanagh - Flashdance...What A Feeling - Not a good song choice for her. Like a fish out of water, but she is adorable and overall a good vocalist. A fair ranking. 

 

12. Ashley Hess - Sir Duke - Someone submitted this one, before I did, so I went with Madison. I still shake my head, at her not making Top 10. Her vocals sound really great. All of her vocals, sounded great. I probably would have her show up later, in this ranking, even though, I do consider this her weakest performance (only because the rest were so great)

 

11. Lauren Alaina - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman - Lauren wasn't a fav of mine, but ... I liked her well enough, and ...she can sing. Yeah, that hot mess of an outfit was  O.o . This is a good placement, especially considering some still left, to be ranked.

15. David Archuleta - We Can Work It Out: Awww. :blushingwave:  I'm glad it's at least this high even though I would have it higher. I loved all of his performances for different reasons. I know he messed up some lyrics here, but I still enjoyed it. :blushingwave: I like this style of song on his and the studio recording highlights his abilities much better. I never thought it was that bad. :broken: I'm glad it at least ranked in the top half. LOL at asking who are the two that submitted this. :dead: 

14. Kris Allen - What's Going On: Not two of my submissions back to back. 😮  lol I actually thought this would be higher and am kind of surprised. This was a good performance and it was hard for me to submit as a "worst" one. I again loved all of his performances to some capacity and I guess prefer the songs of any others that might be considered weaker. I see your point about the lack of frustration feeling in it, although I personally love the acoustic arrangement. 

13. Hollie Cavanagh - Flashdance...What A Feeling: I'm also a fan of Hollie, but did not like this performance and would rank it lower. :blushingwave: I don't think her voice could ever really sound bad, but this didn't work for me. I guess it's a combination of the song and all you said about the awkwardness. 

12. Ashley Hess - Sir Duke: I don't mind this performance and thought it was fine. I get that it wasn't really a "fighting" kind of performance and I believe they chose just one that would be either their victory song or the one to compete with? :? Either way, definitely would have gone with something else that would work better. She sang and performed it fine enough though, but it wasn't impactful for the situation. 

11. Lauren Alaina - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman: Not three of my submissions in one set. 😮  I'm being dramatic. :giggle: I am very pleased with how high this ranks, especially since I know you're not a huge Lauren fan. I'm so glad she (and this performance) have grown on you. :wub:  i thought her vocal was good, but I do appreciate you saying she could take it on better now. OMG the diaper comment. We know who was responsible.... :giggle: :dead: 

 

15. Understandable about the opinion, especially considering who we're talking about here. I haven't heard the studio recording, but I'm sure he sounded better on it. The mystery is driving be bonkers! I think this may be a case for Sherlock Scherzy. 😉

(It's just an excuse for me to post  more Nicole :giggle: :wub:)

14. Wow, they are two of your submissions. :( at being kind of surprised this wasn't higher. Fair enough about the thoughts about the performance. Nice to see you enjoyed the arrangement at least.

13. Fair enough about the performance. I was actually going to place this lower, but it grew on me during my re-watch though it's still my least favorite of hers.

12. Pretty much my thoughts on the performance. As for the second sentence, I wonder if the contestants have two performances for this situation. If so, she definitely should've picked her other one.

11. Geez, I did place three of yours in this set. :haha: At least they're in the upper half in the ranking instead of the lower half. I'm happy to see how happy you are about this placement. Yeah, needless to say that person did not do her job well. Only Haley came away looking somewhat decent that night. :/

Oh! OMG I know Pop and Pop's Diner is a central location on the show. He looks very different though. :haha: 

 

Yes, that is for sure about the health care workers. :yes: Thank goodness for that! Oh my, I am so sorry you had to experience that, but thankfully you made it through and I hope are in good health. :( :hug: 

 

Thanks! It's hard to tell. There are a lot of hardcore Varchie shippers, as well as Barchie... but Bughead is the favorite ship. Lili (who plays Betty) and Cole were dating in real life for a long time, but I believe they broke up now. :(  Not sure how that might affect things on the show. OMG. :dead: Cheryl did make a move on Archie early on, but I don't think that will happen again. I am ready to overtake them all. :wub:  :dead: 

 

Yeah, that was one of the main things I looked for in an apartment. Aww yeah, understandable. 😢 Thank you, that's so kind. ❤️ lol that's okay. :haha: 

 

I know I can. :giggle: I hope I get carded until I'm 60! :wub: :dead:  Haha it is. And LOL that age gap always amazes me. :haha: 

 

That's okay. Aww lol I was just kidding. :blushingwave: I'm fine with you liking them the same. :haha: 

 

  Reveal hidden contents

Oh no, I put so many pieces together just to be wrong again.:lmao: Oh well. OMG it was? 😮  Ahhhh I see. Oh, and now I can match the first clue in two ways from the songs "Underdog" and "Superwoman." 😮  I'm going to try to figure out how this second clue fits now, but of course I will not make an announcement who it is. :haha: Haha yes! At least I got to pretend I was on the show for a bit. :lmao: 

 

 

* Looks up a picture of Pop from Riverdale *

😮. To say he looks different from the comics would be an understatement! :dead: 

 

I think this pandemic really highlights how much work health care workers actually put in and how they're on the frontline when it comes to illness and injury. Yay for small miracles. :haha: Fortunately, I haven't had any experiences with it since, and I can say I am in great (at least decent) health. Thank you. 🤗

 

I wonder how many Varchie shippers are from the show and how many are from the comics. I know there are a lot of Barchie shippers from the comics; however, I'm not sure how many there are from the show. It makes sense for Bughead to be as popular as it is; it's one I can be down with and besides, Jughead did say something along the likes of Betty being the one girl he can tolerate for the most part. :haha: The two who play the characters dated? Seeing that they're not together, I wonder how that affects their working relationship. 🤔 It appears Cheryl isn't that interested in him on the show; she's much more interested in the comics. :haha: I know you'll overtake them all, though Betty may be a bit of a challenge. :haha: Speaking of the comics, I did manage to find a site where they - and other comics - can be read! I'll post the link:

 

OMG Beau Peep (Archie Comics)

 

That's good to see. Fortunately, things aren't too bad with them at this point. She had three, but one was put to sleep a little over a month ago. She was 17 and had a hard time walking and hearing. :( It was tough, but it was probably for the better. You're welcome. 👍 So much to do, so little time. :haha:

 

Lucky you! :haha: I was carded when I was out shopping two weeks ago; prior to that, it's been years since someone asked for ID. Yeah, that age gap is definitely something to be amazed at.

 

Oh, OK. I don't want to intentionally break any hearts now. :haha:

 

Sorry that all of that hard work went to waste. 💔 :( I'll most likely post who it is later this evening. However, I'm going to read and reply to the other posts first before doing so. We'll see how it goes. I hope it was fun; I didn't think about the clues being similar to what they are there. :haha:

15. David Archuleta- We Can Work It Out It was clear that Archie was not comfortable when singing this song. He forgot the lyrics multiple times, and his vocals weren’t the best either. I thought his voice did sound pretty good during some parts of the song though. 👍 I am pleasantly surprised to see this submission rank this high, as I thought it would be in the first batch. 😅 I’m curious to see what other Archie performances you thought were worse (probably some of my favorites... :/Also, I wonder who the other user is that submitted this song... :lmao: 

 

14. Kris Allen- What’s Going On I actually didn’t mind this performance. I thought Kris showed a ton of ARTISTRY, and while it wasn’t as loud as Adam’s performance, I preferred the more intimate setting. While it’s not my favorite Kris performance, I thought it was much better than his live performance of No Boundaries:giggle: 

 

13. Hollie Cavanagh- Flashdance... What A Feeling - Ooh, Gwen Stefani appears AGAIN!  :giggle: While Hollie is one of the cutest Idol finalists, this performance was not cute. 😬 Yeah, this was NOT a good one for Hollie. It was one of, if not her worst, vocal showing of the season. Her stage presence consisted of walking around the stage in heels, which was not the right energy for the song. I thought Hollie was going to get eliminated after this one, but thankfully she didn’t... 😅

 

12. Ashley Hess- Sir Duke Ah look, one of the best performance of the season shows up. Just goes to show how great of a season Season 17 was. 😅 Anyway, I really enjoyed this performance. While I think Ashley should have picked a song that would fit her strong suit for this round, I felt she did a great job, considering the song choice. Her stage presence was amazing and I feel like she showed a side that a lot of people (including the judges :/) had been asking from her. I think this is a nice spot for this submission. 🙂

 

11. Lauren Alaina- (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman Ugh yes, the outfit and hairstyle were atrocious! 🤢 Was this Lauren’s worst performance? No (somehow the If I Die Young trainwreck managed to escaped this ranking.) Did I like it? Not really. The vocals were average at best, and the performance failed to show off Lauren’s BEAUTIFUL country voice (which is the sole reason why I appreciated her run doing the show.)  The best part of this video is the I ❤️ PIA (and Lauren) poster. :wub: 

 

15. Pretty much agree with the comments here. As I mentioned in the write-up, I enjoy it in a guilty pleasure kind of way, which is why I ranked it here. As for which performances I thought were worse, they were You're The VoiceSweet Caroline, and especially With You. I'd like to know this myself. :giggle:

 

14. Fair enough about the thoughts on the performance, especially it being better than No Boundaries.

 

13. She does appear again! I missed a chance to make another reference! :dead: As for our cute pixie, again I'm pretty much in agreement with your thoughts regarding this performance. I knew she would be in the B3 after it; however, I didn't think she would be eliminated that soon. Then again, Colton went home two weeks later when it was thought he would make it pretty far...

 

12. Sadly, I can't say I disagree with the first sentence that much. It speaks volumes about that season. Fair enough about the thoughts on the performance. Under different circumstances, it probably would be looked at in a better light.

 

11. Absolutely no disagreements regarding the first sentence. :haha: I agree with it not being her worst performance (I would add Wild One along with If I Die Young as far as her worst performances are concerned). Fair enough about everything else. I knew the Pia (and Lauren) poster would be popular. :haha:

14. Again, fair enough about the thoughts.

 

13. Pretty much agree with everything here.

 

12. Yeah, despite the performance not being suitable for the situation, it was still disappointing she wasn't in the Top 10. Fair enough about the thoughts on the performance though.

 

11. Fair enough about the thoughts on Lauren and the performance. Definitely agree about the outfit.

Celebrity Crush #5: Alicia Keys

alicia-keys-beauty.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 Alicia-Keys-2020-Tickets-1024x1024.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 alicia-keys-that-grape-juice-2016-19191010101919110910101010-600x773.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 Afros-Braids-By-Alicia-Keys-590x758.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

@miss denise got this one right from the first clue. :yes: Before I get into the Alicia Keys write-up here are the clues and how they relate to her:

 

Clue #1:

When criminals in this world appear

And break the laws that they should fear

And frighten all who see or hear

The cry goes up both far and near

 

As mentioned, these are lyrics to the theme song of the 1960s cartoon Underdog. Alicia has a song called Underdog from her latest album Alicia (which I need to listen to soon). 😅

 

Clue #2:

A Gordon Ramsey Show

 

The Gordon Ramsey show I was referring to was Hell’s Kitchen. Alicia grew up in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan, New York.

 

Clue #3 (Or What Would've Been Clue #3):

Has Something In Common With A Previously Posted Crush and the Thread’s Mascot

 

The two people are Nick Jonas and my ultimate crush Gwen Stefani. :wub: :haha: All three are/were coaches on The Voice.

 

Now for Alicia herself. She is someone who I always thought was a cutie. However, I think she has become more beautiful over the years, even when she didn’t wear makeup which highlighted her skin imperfections. Speaking of which, some people thought it was a gimmick or her going out of her way to shame women who relied heavily on makeup. 🙄 About a week ago, she explained the reason she didn’t wear makeup all that often was because she became addicted to it. At the end of the day, it’s her choice whether she does or not; I still think she’s beautiful regardless. :yes:

 

On the subject of her looks, she has great bone structure and a beautiful smile. In addition, I love her hair and fashion style. For the former, the braids she wore early in her career is probably my favorite of hers although I like her other styles as well. Regarding the latter, she can rock the urban look or a more sophisticated classy look. One of the things I like about her is she doesn’t try to be this *** symbol and wear very revealing outfits. She often carries herself with pride and class, though she can be urban and vulgar from time to time (although nothing too bad). Speaking of ***, the last thing I want to mention is I think she has a sexy speaking voice; I could listen to her talk all day. :stealth: :haha:

 

Now to talk about the main thing she’s known for: her music. I’ve pretty much enjoyed everything she's put out thus far although as mentioned earlier I have yet to listen to anything from her latest album outside of Underdog. :haha: My favorite albums are definitely her first three; I played the crap out of them with her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, being my absolute favorite. When she isn’t pushing too hard, she has a singing voice that’s just about as lovely as her speaking one. In addition to singing, she of course is a classically trained pianist as well as an accomplished songwriter. With that said, I have never cared for No One because that was a case in which I felt she pushed her voice too hard. I think she wrote the song out of her range which was a bit of a surprise. Outside of No One, I don’t think there are too many of her songs that are in that vein so to speak.

 

In addition to her music, I know she’s dabbled in acting although the main one I know is the movie Smokin’ Aces (which I have not seen). Also, as mentioned, she was a coach on The Voice for a few seasons, plus she has hosted the past two Grammys Award shows to mostly positive reviews. I also know she released a book earlier this year, which is something else I may look into.

 

I’ll end this write-up by posting a few of my favorite songs of hers (her non-singles), a couple of videos, and her dual piano performance from the 2019 Grammys. I hope anyone enjoys them.

Alicia Keys

 

 

Letter Grade: B


I loved her as a coach on the Voice (and I so desperately want her back), so she gets bonus points from that. I always liked her as an artist, but I never really found her attractive. I guess I can see where you’re coming from with this one though. 🤷‍♂️ Like you mentioned, I also like her more toned down outfit choices. So true about her voice though, I always found it very soothing! 🙂 I will say that an Idol contestant truly gave a “captivating” performance of one of Alicia’s songs... :giggle:

15. Understandable about the opinion, especially considering who we're talking about here. I haven't heard the studio recording, but I'm sure he sounded better on it. The mystery is driving be bonkers! I think this may be a case for Sherlock Scherzy. 😉

Yeah, needless to say that person did not do her job well. Only Haley came away looking somewhat decent that night. :/

😮. To say he looks different from the comics would be an understatement! :dead: 

 

I think this pandemic really highlights how much work health care workers actually put in and how they're on the frontline when it comes to illness and injury. Yay for small miracles. :haha: Fortunately, I haven't had any experiences with it since, and I can say I am in great (at least decent) health. Thank you. 🤗

 

I wonder how many Varchie shippers are from the show and how many are from the comics. I know there are a lot of Barchie shippers from the comics; however, I'm not sure how many there are from the show. It makes sense for Bughead to be as popular as it is; it's one I can be down with and besides, Jughead did say something along the likes of Betty being the one girl he can tolerate for the most part. :haha: The two who play the characters dated?

I'll post the link:

 

OMG Beau Peep (Archie Comics)

 

That's good to see. Fortunately, things aren't too bad with them at this point. She had three, but one was put to sleep a little over a month ago. She was 17 and had a hard time walking and hearing. :( It was tough, but it was probably for the better. You're welcome. 👍 So much to do, so little time. :haha:

 

Lucky you! :haha: I was carded when I was out shopping two weeks ago; prior to that, it's been years since someone asked for ID. Yeah, that age gap is definitely something to be amazed at.

 

Oh, OK. I don't want to intentionally break any hearts now. :haha:

 

 

  Reveal hidden contents

Sorry that all of that hard work went to waste. 💔 :( I'll most likely post who it is later this evening. However, I'm going to read and reply to the other posts first before doing so. We'll see how it goes. I hope it was fun; I didn't think about the clues being similar to what they are there. :haha: 

 

- Yes. ❤️ You can listen to it here if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOuyCDcQltE LOL this with Sherlock Scherzy. :giggle: 

- It's fine. They had to be somewhere and at least this is the higher portion of the list. :haha: Which you also just said. I guess we know who Gwen's favorite was then. :giggle:  

 

lol yes! No wonder I didn't recognize him from your gif. :haha: 

 

That is so true. It also makes us much more appreciative of them and things in general, I think. ❤️ Yay, that is great! :hug: 

 

Not sure, but I see a lot of Varchie and Barchie fans when I look on Twitter. :haha:  Nobody is as loud as the Bughead fans though. Yeah, this is what I wonder. :(  They were together in real life for awhile, broke up rather recently, and the show hasn't been on since spring. I hope they're on good terms with each other, but I'm not sure. I see about Cheryl. :giggle: Nooo, I must get through them all!  :dead:  Oh yay, thank you so much for sharing! I'm excited to look through this. :haha: 

 

Aw, I'm so sorry to hear about the one she lost. :( It's so heartbreaking, but I'm sure she lived a wonderful life with that many years. ❤️ I'm glad the others are still in good health. :hug:  I'm in the mindset that if I wouldn't plan for a baby without being financially ready, I shouldn't for a pet either. :haha: So true! 

 

omg I am carded without fail every time. :lmao: My mom looks much younger than her age too, so I got the gene and am not complaining. :wub: :haha: 

 

Of course not. I know you don't. :haha:  :hug:  

 

 

No need to apologize. It was still fun. I do really like playing detective. :haha:  

Alicia Keys: Yay, I'm glad I was able to get it and with the first clue! 😄  It was a bit tricky. Definitely did not pick up on the second one, but I could have if I looked into it more since I see it listed right there on her Wikipedia page. :dead: I like to think I would have gotten the third clue. I am also a fan of Alicia and really enjoy her music, as well as her as a person. I agree she is beautiful, with or without makeup. It's crazy she would be ridiculed for not wanting to wear any.  Let the woman's skin breathe! (!) She can pull off a lot of styles and always looks great. lol at your censoring. :giggle: She can be vulgar? 😮 That is a surprise.  I get the appeal of her speaking voice and glad you enjoy it so much. :teeheewave:  Her first three albums were my favorites as well. The Diary of Alicia Keys is the one I played the most too. ❤️ Aww, I'm surprised by your comments on "No One." I love that song, but fair enough. She is an extremely all around talented musician. I haven't seen much of her on The Voice, but I imagine she's a great coach. I think "Tell You Something" is my favorite of the songs you posted. I also remember that medley from The Grammy's. It was so great. ❤️

Letter Grade: B


I loved her as a coach on the Voice (and I so desperately want her back), so she gets bonus points from that. I always liked her as an artist, but I never really found her attractive. I guess I can see where you’re coming from with this one though. 🤷‍♂️ Like you mentioned, I also like her more toned down outfit choices. So true about her voice though, I always found it very soothing! 🙂 I will say that an Idol contestant truly gave a “captivating” performance of one of Alicia’s songs... :giggle:

Alicia vibing. :wub: 

 

 

At least this one isn't as harsh as the others. :haha: Fair enough about not finding her really attractive (I obviously disagree 😛), but at least you seem to like her both as an artist and a coach on The Voice. At least you agree with me about her outfits and her voice. As for the "captivating" performance of one of her songs by an Idol contestant, I hope it isn't what I think it is... :/ :haha:

 

That gif is a great one. 👍

- Yes. ❤️ You can listen to it here if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOuyCDcQltE LOL this with Sherlock Scherzy. :giggle: 

- It's fine. They had to be somewhere and at least this is the higher portion of the list. :haha: Which you also just said. I guess we know who Gwen's favorite was then. :giggle:  

 

lol yes! No wonder I didn't recognize him from your gif. :haha: 

 

That is so true. It also makes us much more appreciative of them and things in general, I think. ❤️ Yay, that is great! :hug: 

 

Not sure, but I see a lot of Varchie and Barchie fans when I look on Twitter. :haha:  Nobody is as loud as the Bughead fans though. Yeah, this is what I wonder. :(  They were together in real life for awhile, broke up rather recently, and the show hasn't been on since spring. I hope they're on good terms with each other, but I'm not sure. I see about Cheryl. :giggle: Nooo, I must get through them all!  :dead:  Oh yay, thank you so much for sharing! I'm excited to look through this. :haha: 

 

Aw, I'm so sorry to hear about the one she lost. :( It's so heartbreaking, but I'm sure she lived a wonderful life with that many years. ❤️ I'm glad the others are still in good health. :hug:  I'm in the mindset that if I wouldn't plan for a baby without being financially ready, I shouldn't for a pet either. :haha: So true! 

 

omg I am carded without fail every time. :lmao: My mom looks much younger than her age too, so I got the gene and am not complaining. :wub: :haha: 

 

Of course not. I know you don't. :haha:  :hug:

No need to apologize. It was still fun. I do really like playing detective. :haha:  

Alicia Keys: Yay, I'm glad I was able to get it and with the first clue! 😄  It was a bit tricky. Definitely did not pick up on the second one, but I could have if I looked into it more since I see it listed right there on her Wikipedia page. :dead: I like to think I would have gotten the third clue. I am also a fan of Alicia and really enjoy her music, as well as her as a person. I agree she is beautiful, with or without makeup. It's crazy she would be ridiculed for not wanting to wear any.  Let the woman's skin breathe!

- I did listen to it, and he does sound very nice here. I'm glad you enjoyed and got the reference. :haha:

- Yeah, at least those performances have that going for them. Apparently we do. 😂 If only she was as kind to another Haley... :/ :haha:

 

Needless to say, Pop got a serious makeover. 🤣

 

I completely agree with the first two sentences. Thank you. ❤️ 🤗

 

Oh, I see about Varchie, Barchie, and Bughead. So they were together for a while. Seeing that the show hasn't been on since Spring and that they broke up recently, I guess no one knows what their working relationship will be like. 🤷‍♂️ Hopefully they will be on at least amicable terms. As I said, I'm sure you'll be able to get through them all. :yes: I hope you enjoy them when you have the time to read them!

 

Yeah, she was a sweet dog who was very energetic in her younger years, so it was difficult to see her have a hard time moving around during her last days. :( She did live a wonderful life. I'm glad as well. That is a great mindset to have. I don't have any children or pets of my own, and I don't think I'm at the point to where I'm financially confident enough to do so. It looks like we're in the same boat regarding this. :haha: Heh, I'm way behind on The Voice; I barely finished the auditions and haven't started the Battle Rounds yet. In addition, I have yet to watch the Nicole/Derek DWTS routines. 😂

 

It does appear to be all in the genes. :lmao:

 

🤗

 

 

Oh, OK. It's good to see you having fun with it.

Yep. 👏 The second clue would've been picked up if one was familiar with her upbringing. I see your point about the last clue. Happy to see you're a fan of hers as an artist and as a person. I definitely agree about her being beautiful and especially your thoughts over the makeup "controversy". No arguments from me about her styles she can pull off. I guess it's easy to see what I'm talking about even with the censoring. :haha: She isn't too crass or anything like that, but she will utter some profanity every now and then. Glad you get the appeal of her speaking voice. :wub: Great minds think alike regarding the first three albums, especially the one that's played the most. 👍 Yeah, out of her singles, that's the one I care about the least. :( Definitely agree about her being an all around talented musician. I haven't seen her much on The Voice either, but it looks like she won a season, so maybe that says what we need to know about her as a coach. Tell You Something is my favorite out of the posted ones as well. That medley was great indeed. :wub:

Not a grading system now!:dead: 

 

 

 

Especially since the grader refuses to submit anything worth grading on. 😉 🤣
