Susan Boyle Appears Happy Losing To Diversity
It is quite a surprise how Diversity outlasted hugely-popular Susan Boyle in her bid be the one who'll perform in the Royal Variety Show, but it seems Diversity won in their unique and craftily-made dance number that won people's votes.

Greg Pritchard "Nessun Dorma" Video BGT Semifinal 5 May 29

As a 29 year old waiter who’s also a male soprano, Greg Pritchard garnered raves during his audition. In Britain's Got Talent (BGT) Semifinal 5 May 29 show, Greg Pritchard chose to perform his version of “Nessun Dorma” from the Giacomo Puccini opera, Turandot. Greg's performance was a bit shaky at the start. In fact, Simon Cowell buzzed him out.

However, Piers Morgan thought Greg's performance was "very original, very unique and very Britain's Got Talent". Sadly, Greg did not get through the BGT Finale tomorrow because the judges preferred to give Hollie Steel the slot. May Greg Pritchard fans thought that he was robbed of his opportunity to shine in the BGT Finale. Oh well... just watch Greg Pritchard's Nessun Dorma performance video in BGT Semifinal 5 May 29 (5/29/09):

Hollie Steel Breaks Down in BGT Semifinals 5 (Video)

Apparently, the Britain's Got Talent Semifinals is too much for a ten year old to handle. That's why Hollie Steel could not control her stage fright as she was in the middle of her song "Edelweiss" (from The Sound of Music). After Hollie had frozen onstage, tears began to fall as she appears to be on a meltdown. That's why Ant, Dec, Amanda and her mother came to her rescue in front of the camera. Hollie asked if she could do her performance one more time but the show doesn't have enough time to accommodate that. Simon assured her that they will find time during the rest of the show. 
Hollie Steel Meltdown May 29 - Hollie Steel Breakdown 5-29-09
Poor Hollie! I think the audience will be commiserating with her and put her through the finals.

Update: Hollie makes it to the BGT Finals tomorrow!

BGT Results May 28 - Julian Smith and 2 Grand Join BGT Finalists

Britain's Got Talent Semifinal 4 results are in and it was Julian Smith who was largely favored by public voting. However, the BGT judges favored 2 Grand over Callum Francis. 2 Grand is a grandfather-granddaughter singing tandem (76 and 12 years old) from Doncaster. They sang a heart-warming rendition of "Somewhere Out There" that made BGT judge Amanda Holden cry. I don't think 2 Grand were better performers than Callum Francis, but I think the judges cose them over Callum because he's already got a wide theater experience - while 2 Grand is a certified raw talent
2 Grand and Julian Smith Britains Got Talent Finalists
So there's already 8 finalists who will perform on the BGT Finale, they are:
  • Susan Boyle
  • Diversity
  • Flawless
  • Shaun Smith
  • Stavros Flatley
  • Shaheen Jafargholi
  • Julian Smith
  • 2 Grand
Below is the video of 2 Grand "Somewhere Out There" BGT May 28 Performance:

Lastly, Simon Cowell liked Julian as a person because he's humble and he's chosen unique and brilliant songs for them.

ESTI GINZBURG - Supermodel Dating Chace Crawford?

After snatching a much-coveted role in the Footloose remake, is Chace Crawford also on the prowl for a new girlfriend? Reports have been swirling that Chace "getting close" to supermodel Esti Ginzburg. Originally from Israel, Esti Ginzburg has just turned 19 and she's been on the 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Rumor has it that a source at a party last Sunday confirmed that Esti was "texting" Chace and later she left to meet him up. Both Esti and Chace are set to star a film adaptation of Nick McDonell's book "Twelve".
Esti Ginzburg Chace Crawford Dating
Oh well, that's all rumors for now! If Chace indeed have the hots for Esti, then he will join the ranks of Leonardo DiCaprio who have Israeli supermodel girlfriends. Is Esti Ginzburg pretty enough for Chace Crawford? Well, I think she's sexy enough - just look at the Esti Ginzburg photos below:

Susan Boyle Caught Ranting - Susan Hates Shaheen Jafargholi

Fame might just be giving her much pressure as Susan Boyle was caught publicly screaming four letter words when two strangers "set out to wind her up" in the Wembley Plaza Hotel in North London yesterday (May 27 5 PM). In the Sun UK exclusive, the Internet sensation was "roaring": "How f&@#!ing dare you! You can't f&@#!ing talk to me like that." And when the cops stationed near the hotel accosted her about having problems, SuBo snapped out "Of course there's a f&@#!ing problem!". Whoa, that's really not the Susan Boyle the world knew who's a church worker and a mild-mannered woman! Sources say that Susan Boyle is in a bad mood lately because one of her toughest competitor in Britain's Got Talent, Shaheen Jafargholi got rave praises from BGT judges the night before, especially from her favorite judge Piers Morgan. More than 100 people at the hotel saw Susan scream invectives when Shaheen's fans were cheering for him at the hotel bar.
Susan Boyle Ranting and Hating Shaheen
A pal of Susan Boyle had intervened and told Susan to calm down and she "can't act like this." One neighbor of the Internet sensation issued Susan's tendency to throw a fit: "The reason is because if Susan doesn't get what she wants, she goes wild." Another one commented that: "A few of us think it's only a matter of time before she loses it on the show." I guess Susan should get her act together in order to gain their votes for the show. If she can’t control her tantrums, Susan will definitely be subdued by a 12 year old kid in the BGT Finale. For more information about the Susan Boyle ranting, please visit The Sun UK website.

Continental Sues Nine Pilots for Allegedly Faking Divorces

There's an unverified news report going around the Internet saying that Continental Airlines is suing nine pilots for allegedly faking divorces. According to Car Rentals (carrentals.co.uk), these nine Continental pilots faked their divorces so that "their ex-spouses can collect retirement benefits - while pilots continue to fly". According to the source, Continental have obtained proof of the scam when their children and friends have revealed that these pilots "re-married" their spouses in order to receive payouts from the airline carrier.
Continental Sues Nine Pilots for Allegedly Faking Divorces
The news report also unveiled that eight of the nine pilots involved in this "divorce scam" have either quit or fired from their jobs, while the other one had promised to pay the airline back. Continental had already filed a suit against them in Houston's federal district last week. The beleaguered airline is seeking help from the courts to bring back all the money they have turned over to the ex-spouses. Continental sues the nine pilots after they took advantage of a loophole in the federal law that "allows payment of benefits in divorce actions, before the worker actually retires." Among the nine pilots, seven of them were male and two were female.

Julia, who sashayed in the stage with "Lady Marmalade", got ditched by judge Amanda Holden predicting that the Queen will "be very upset" upon seeing her sexy dancing because Prince Phillip and the boys will be distracted by her as she is "far too sexy". Sue, on the other hand, got raves with her performance as Holden thought that: "You are a vixen with a violin, you have really grown."

Marco Andretti and Mario Moraes Bows Out of Indy 500

The 2009 Indianapolis 500 (2009 Indy 500) appeared to be tough for the 22 year old Marco Andretti, son of the 1991 IndyCar World Series champ Michael Andretti, as he retired early in the race in the much-ballyhooed auto event of the year. The younger Andretti made contact with the Marco Moraes in the Turn One on the First Lap in the Indy 500 that swerved Marco's car into a wall that resulted to both of them to bow out of competition.
Marco Andretti and Mario Moraes Indy 500 2009
Marco Andretti blamed the 20 year old Brazilian about their fate by saying that "The kid just doesn't get it and he never will. You would think that somebody would know that somebody is sitting right outside of you". Moraes, on the other hand, was teary-eyed upon seeing the smash aftermath on his KV Racing Dallara. Moraes thought that it was Andretti who hit him: "I was holding my line, I was in front and he hit me. I don't know how and where yet." Right now, the 2009 Indy 500 race is being controlled by 2007 Indy Series Champ Dario Franchitti. Watch the actual Marco Andretti and Mario Moraes Indy 500 2009 video below:

What would Adam Lambert fans feel? Google trends did not spell him victory. Everyone was just pimping him and it didn't work. Danny Gokey fans voted for Kris, so that may be a factor too.

Although Dial Idol is not the most accurate prediction instrument, I think their results are credible enough because we've seen how Adam and Kris performed last night. I want Adam Lambert to win, but right now I'm not too sure about that. Kris might just be the American Idol Winner for 2009!

Adam Lambert, Kris Allen "No Boundaries" - American Idol Finale Round 3

The American Idol Season 8 Winner's Song is co-written by Kara DioGuardi, Cathy Dennis and Mitch Allen. The song wasn't as good as the past winner's songs. For me, it lacks the impact of the other songs like "A Moment Like This" or "I Believe".
