Single of the Day: Kelly Clarkson – Piece by Piece

Enaknya singer/songwriter itu adalah bisa curhat lewat lagu. Seperti Kelly Clarkson ini. Masa kecilnya yang suram karena ditinggal pergi oleh sang ayah kerap menjadi cerita apik dalam lagu-lagu yang ia nyanyikan. Setelah ‘Behind These Hazel Eyes’ dan ‘Because of You’, lagu berikutnya yang mengambil ilham dari kisah pahit tersebut adalah ‘Piece by Piece‘, single ketiga dari album terbaru Kelly yang berjudul serupa. Bedanya, kali ini ia menyambungkan cerita broken home dirinya dengan masa-masa sekarang, dimana dirinya juga menjadi seorang istri, sekaligus ibu dari putri kecilnya, River Rose. Bagian awal lagu ini tergolong kelam, karena terdeskripsi dengan untaian kalimat yang tidak

Charlie Puth

Album of the Month: Charlie Puth – Nine Track Mind

Setelah agak tertunda beberapa bulan, akhirnya “Nine Track Mind“, album debut salah satu penyanyi pendatang baru yang namanya tengah bersinar, Charlie Puth, dirilis juga. Ekspektasi jelas besar disampirkan ke dirinya atau album ini. Mengapa tidak? Kolaborasinya dengan Wiz Khalifa dalam ‘See You Again’ merupakan salah satu hits terbesar tahun lalu. Tidak heran jika banyak yang mengira-ngira, apa dan bagaimana yang ditawarkan Puth dalam album ini? Sebelumnya ada ‘Martin Gaye’, yang merupakan kolaborasinya bersama penyanyi pendatang baru yang tengah naik daun lain, Meghan Trainor. Nomor doo-woop ini memang sedap didengar. Pas pula dengan karakter musik yang biasa dibawakan oleh Trainor. Kerjasama

Tahun ini, Grammy Awards sudah berusia 58 tahun. Tradisi perilisan album kompilasi para unggulannya sudah berusia 21. Kompilasi “2016 Grammy Nominees” sebagai suvenir ajang penghargaan musik paling prestisius ini menampilkan 21 buah lagu yang berasal dari 6 kategori; 4 di kategori umum dan 2 di genre pop dan country. Pasangan Pop dan country pun merupakan genre yang dalam kurun waktu 3 tahun ini dipajang untuk album. Pasangan ini absen di kompilasi 2013, dimana Pop bersanding dengan Rock di album. Pilah-pilih ini bukanlah perwujudan yang representatif terhadap penghargaan itu sendiri. Toh seluruh unggulan dalam kategori yang diangkat tampil dalam album. Hanya

Neck Deep Gemparkan Singapura Untuk Pertama Kalinya

Tanggal 27 Januari 2016 merupakan hari yang paling ditunggu-tunggu oleh para penggemar band pop punk di Singapura. Neck Deep, band asal UK yang terdiri dari Ben Barlow, Matt West, Dani Washington, Fil Thorpe-Evans, dan Sam Bowden untuk pertama kalinya mengunjungi Asia Tenggara dalam rangkaian World Tour 2016.

Ketika meja registrasi dan booth merchandise sudah selesai dipersiapkan oleh panitia, antrian mulai menghampiri meja registrasi satu persatu untuk menukarkan tiket, dan membeli

The Vamps dan The Tide Hebohkan The Coliseum, Singapura

Maksimal meski hanya sebentar. Begitulah kira-kira gambaran konser The Vamps di The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel, Singapura pada tanggal 26 Januari 2016 lalu. Band asal Inggris, The Vamps, menggelar konser pertama mereka di Singapura. Mereka juga menggandeng The Tide, band muda asal California, Amerika Serikat yang dikontrak oleh label milik The Vamps untuk menjadi opening act konser mereka. Pengumuman pembatalan konser The Vamps di Jakarta, yang seharusnya digelar tanggal 25 Januari 2016 lalu itu cukup mengecewakan para Vampettes (sebutan fans The Vamps). Tapi tidak sedikit dari mereka yang berasal dari Indonesia akhirnya menyusul sang idola ke negeri tetangga itu. Sejak

X Factor US Top 6 – The Unplugged & Pepsi Challenge

Minggu ini, 6 finalist tersisa akan membawakan masing-masing 2 lagu, yang pertama adalah versi unplugged (akustik) dan juga Pepsi Challenge, dimana para fans bisa vote untuk memilih lagu mana yang dibawakan oleh para finalis.

1. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adults – “Edge Of Glory” by Lady Gaga
Penampilan pertama CeCe di babak ini cukup bagus.
LA: “Sometimes we get it wrong. I’m starting to become a fan.”
Britney: “At this point in the competition it should be great, it was just good.”
Simon: “I don’t think you are worth the 5 million dollar contract. It was a little too cabaret for me.”
Demi: “I think this was one of your best performances.”

2. Emblem3- Simon Cowell – Groups – “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
Mereka cukup berhasil membawakan dengan versi akustik lagu ini.
LA: “That was pretty good. At least one of Simon’s groups can sing harmony.”
Britney: says, “This has been your best performance in the competition.”
Demi: “You guys did great, it wasn’t the best. I feel like it’s a downgraded version of the Jonas bros 5 years ago.”
Simon: “The pressure to deliver what they just did, you did amazingly well.”

3. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “As Long As You Love Me” by Justin Bieber
Boleh dibilang lagu ini terdengar lebih baik daripada versi aslinya, dan terasa beda.
LA: “I love you so much! You showed some restraint. That was maybe your best for my taste.”
Demi: “You sang it better than Justin did. You remind me so much of Jo Jo.”
Simon: “This is why I love working in this country. I’m seeing a star emerge week after week. You’re actually very cool, you really are. One of my favorite performances.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. Each week, you make the song your own”

4. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele
Penampilan mereka makin membaik tiap minggu, harmonisasi juga semakin terasah.
LA: “I still didn’t hear any harmony. You should be named Fifth Unison”
Britney: “I’m trying to figure out what separates you from the other girl groups.”
Demi: “I feel like there’s a couple of you that should just be solo artists.”
Simon: “That was really unfair criticism, LA. They have worked on their harmonies. I think they deserve a shot in the semi-final next week.”

5. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – “It’s a Man’s World”
Kita tidak melihat adanya ‘unplugged’ dibawakan dilagu ini, bagus sih, hanya saja terdengar seperti ‘full band’.
LA: “That was really different for you. This week, you brought attitude. You sang your butt off.”
Demi: “It was risky singing a song you’ve done before, but it paid off.”
Simon: “It was a little bit screechy in parts, you made up for it in the end. I wish you had chosen a different song.”
Britney: “I’m so proud of you. You not only nailed it, you destroyed it.”

6. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi
Pembawaan Tate di lagu ini cukup bagus.
Britney: “I feel like you’re getting away from what you do best, down the middle country.”
Demi: “I’m a fan of you. I will be buying your album one day. This performance was a little boring and you skipped out on the high note.”
Simon: “It’s like taking a goldfish for a walk. You have to choose the material. I like it when you choose the material. Not a great song choice.”
LA: “I love the song. You did a really good job with the song. You’re finally doing something for yourself. Your family stands behind you, and I stand behind you.”

Babak kedua: Pepsi Challenge:

7. CeCe Frey – Demi Lovato – Young Adult – “Part of Me” by Katy Perry
OK, CeCe Frey kembali ke tampilan semula dengan tattoo Leopard di wajahnya, soal penampilannya? Sayang, agak kacau dan dia terdengar seperti berteriak-teriak dibagian verse.
LA: “Not loving it. That was karaoke.
Britney : “I found it very entertaining. I loved it.”
Simon: “I liked the way you were defiant all the way through the performance. If you do go, I’m going to miss you.”
Demi: “if the princess of pop says you were good, then I’ll take it from her,”

8. Emblem3 – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan
Penampilan mereka terdengar lebih baik dari yang pertama.
LA: “Tonight you nailed it.”
Britney: “I thought it was a superstar performance.”
Demi: “I am a fan. I just want to see you command the stage more. Much better than your first performance.”
Simon: “That is a silly criticism. I think you’ve been really good tonight. Emblem 3 has landed.”
Perseteruan Simon vs Demi semakin memanas, dimana mereka terkadang merebut mic dan saling memotong komen masing-masing.

9. Carly Rose Sonenclar – Britney Spears – Teens – “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce
Carly terdengar seperti profesional menyanyikan lagu ini.
LA: “You never let me down.”
Demi: “That’s a phenomenal vocal. I do want to hear something uptempo.”
Simon: “Don’t listen to a single word this one has said.”

10. Fifth Harmony – Simon Cowell – Groups – “Give Your Heart a Break” by Demi Lovato
Akhirnya Fifth Harmony memberikan penampilan terbaik mereka selama di X Factor US ini.
LA: “I actually hear harmonies. That was your very very best performance”
Britney: “A friend of mine sings this song good, and so do you.”
Demi: “I think this song should have been your song. You sing it better than the original. It was energetic, fun. Simon did a good job this week.”
Simon: “The show would not be the same without you,”

11. Diamond White – Britney Spears – Teens – Diamonds by Rihanna
Namanya sesuai dengan judul lagu yang dibawakan, dan Diamond pun turun dari langit2 panggung dengan kursi yang berbentuk ‘berlian’. Sayang versi lagu yang dibawakannya kurang pas.
LA: “I really like you, I really like that song, unfortunately I didn’t love your rendition of it.”
Demi: “I feel like you definitely did it justice.”
Simon: “Everybody is being really strong tonight. The second half was better than the first. Overall, I think you’ve had a good night.”
Britney; “I feel like this song was made for you.”

12. Tate Stevens – LA Reid – Over 25s – “If Tomorrow Never Comes” by Garth Brooks
Tate is in his element! Dengan membawakan lagu yang pas di genrenya, Tate bersinar!
Britney: “That felt like a Tate Stevens performance.”
Demi: “I got a little sleep on that performance, but you have a huge future ahead of you.”
Simon: “Welcome back to the competition. YOu remind me of Garth Brooks. I’m happy you’ve come this far. You don’t put an age cap on talent. We are going to see you next week 100%”
LA: “If there is any truth that you were straying away from your roots, America brought you back. That was great.”

Result Show:
Minggu ini ada Melanie Amaro, pemenang X Factor US season 1 membawakan lagu barunya “Long Distance’, sedangkan debut albumnya diperkirakan akan rilis awal tahun depan.

Eliminasi pertama yaitu CeCe Frey.

Kemudian Ke$ha tampi membawakan single terbarunya “C’mon”.
