Wow! I was just so happy that David Cook won. I thought he was incredibly talented guy. He really deserves it. I really liked his rendition of “Billy Jean” and “Always Be My Baby”. Do you believe in destiny? I guess so. David Cook came to the auditions initially to support his younger brother Andrew (who did not make it to Hollywood) and then decided to try out himself. Isn't that great?
Everyone in my Mom’s family can sing. They can play different instruments. I even remembered how excited I was when my cousin sang on stage on an amateur contest. We are actually at the same age. He doesn’t like singing on stage but my Grandpa was so pushy. I don't blame him it's his pride, I guess.
When I came back home for the fiesta, everything is pretty much the same. Our fiesta is a 3-day celebration of eating pigs, basketball tournaments and night activities. One of the highlights is our version of American Idol. That is, after an 8-week of elimination then there’s the championship. And because there’s not much to do, everybody would love to spend their night at the Amateur Singing Contest place. My husband would call it a “karaoke” place, hahaha!
Isn't that a big deal? Of course it's more than a Karaoke :) When we were kids, we had to hurry just so we can squat on the ground right in front of the stage to see and hear all the singers.
