The X Factor UK Season 11 - Top 16


I'm so happy that we're going to get 16 finalists instead of 12 because there were still so many good acts were eliminated. However this time, other judges will pick the wildcard for each category. Here are the Top 16 finalists for this season. 

Boys Category (Mel B)

Andrea Faustini

Jack Walton

Jake Quickenden

Paul Akister

Very strong category. Mel B originally pick Andrea, Jake & Paul while Simon picked Jack as her wildcard. Andrea is definitely my favorite. Very humble and his voice is very powerful. Jack is very unique while Jake has a very beautiful tone. Meanwhile Paul has a very soulful voice. 

Girls Category (Cheryl)

Chloe Jasmine

Lauren Platt

Lola Saunders

Stephanie Nala

Unlike Mel, I think Cheryl made a bad decision. She originally picked Chloe, Lauren & Stephanie. I understand why she picked Lauren but the other two. I like Chloe & Stephanie but the other singers such as Kerianne & Lola were stronger than these two. For the wildcard, Simon picked Lola which Cheryl should be thankful. Lauren & Lola have so much potential. But both of them need to be more confident. Chloe is very interesting due to her posh personality but she only can sing jazz songs. And Stephanie, her voice is really thin, She needs to pick a suitable song for her voice. 

Overs Category (Simon Cowell)

Ben Haenow

Fleur East

Jay James

Stevi Ritchie

Simon's original picks are Ben, Fleur & Jay. I think he made a right decision. Three of them have so much potential. Ben has this very rock-ish and soulful voice and Jay has a very beautiful light quirky tone. And Fleur, she really stood out during the Judges House. However, Cheryl decide to bring back Stevi. What? Over someone like Helen, Janet and Lizzy. I don't get why UK public really like Cheryl as a judge. She made poor decision again and again. 

Groups Category

Blonde Electra

Only The Young

Overload Generations

Stereo Kicks

Louis as always made a very 'weird' decision. Sometimes, it was good but other times, it was really unnecessary. Only The Young definitely earned their spot. Stereo Kicks is very interesting but if he didn't know what to do with 8-pieces boyband, they are going to be disaster. Blonde Electra can sing actually but I didn't get why they want to be a joke-act. As for wildcard, Mel B brought back Overload Generations. It's a little bit weird considering they didn't even get to go to the Judges House but the other 3 acts who were eliminated at the Judges House weren't that good so I get Mel's decision. 

The Voice US Season 7 - Top 32


The Voice is back!!!! Like 2 months ago lol. But I'm too lazy to make a review during the early stages. I felt like it was too long and exhausted. So I was basically waiting for the Knockout Round which is definitely my favorite stage in The Voice. Here are Top 32 who will compete in the KR next week. 

Team Adam

Adam has a solid team again this season. I really like Chris. I think he has a very beautiful tone. Damien, Blessing & Toia are very similar to me. I like Toia the most. As for the other girls, I love Mia's tone. Kinda reminds me of Camilla from Fifth Harmony. Alessandra has potential but she didn't really stood out yet. Rebekah was montaged in her Blind Audition and Battle Round which kinda unfair to her because she has such a beautiful quirky tone. Matt is definitely one of the standout in the early rounds. It's really tough, but my Top 5 from Team Adam are Chris, Mia, Rebekah, Matt & Alessandra.

Team Blake

Blake has a very strong team this time. He has 3 female singers with powerful voice. I love Reagan so much. And Taylor B also a stand out for me. Allison is also another country singer but I felt like she was overshadowed by Reagan & Taylor B a little bit. Another female singer, Jessie has a very light quirky tone. Reminds me of Ellie Goulding's voice. The male singers didn't really grab my attention though except for James David. He's definitely a winner potential for me. Really strong country voice. Grant & Tanner are too young for this competition and Griffin, I can't remember who he is. So my top 5 are James David, Reagan, Taylor B, Allison & Jessie

Team Gwen

Gwen Stefani is one of the new judges this season. I think she did well so far. Her song choice are really good and majority of her artistes were stole by the other mentors but she still left with stronger artistes. Anita is my favorite. Something about her is very interesting. Bryana is very commercial. Strong pop vocalist. I also like Ryan & Beth. Craig is a very good steal for Gwen because she didn't have a country artist in her team. The other 3 singers are good too. It's going to be hard for Gwen to pick her team later. My top 5 are Anita, Bryana, Ryan, Beth & Craig. 

Team Pharell

Team Pharell is definitely the strongest team this season. All 8 of them are really interesting. Danica is such a powerful vocalist. Katriz has so much potential and Jean has a very rich tone. As for the male vocalist, Taylor P is definitely one of the frontrunners. Menlik is very good. I also like Ricky, Luke & Elyjuh. I have no idea how Pharell going to pick only 4 of them. But my Top 5 are Taylor P, DaNica, Katriz, Jean & Elyjuh.

Next week, KR will start. Taylor Swift will be the advisor for the Knockout Round. I can't wait to see her.

Life Update


Dah lama tak berblogging. Agak busy sikit. Banyak kerja dan bulan 8 dan 9 juga memerlukan aku untuk fokus pada komitmen lain. But I'm here and ready to blogging again. 

So apa yang baru pasal kehidupan aku. Well, aku dah pindah ke bilik baru. Bilik kali ni lebih besar dan siap ada bathroom lagi. So aku memang excited dapat bilik baru ni dan sewa bulanan dia pun memang berpatutan. 

Lagi satu, aku baru je lepas interview sebagai Pensyarah Politeknik. Seriously nervous giler aku. Tapi mujurlah kawan baik aku Hazrey interview sekali so perasaan gugup tu berjaya diatasi. Ada dalam 10 calon so tak tahulah rezeki aku macam mana. Doa-doakanlah ya. 

My mother pula, baru buka bisnes. Jual nasi berlauk. Kadangkala rasa sebak juga memikirkan Mama aku tu. Sudah lebih 3 bulan Papa 'pergi'. Setakat ni bisnes masih okay. Hopefully, tuhan bagi Mama aku kecekalan untuk menghadapi hari-hari yang mendatang ni. 

Cinta? Aku dah single. Nothing much to say about it. 

That's all. I'll see you guys later.
