Lyrics: No Boundaries

No Boundaries

Seconds, hours, so many days
You know what you want
but how long can you wait
Every moment last forever
When you feel you’ve lost your way
What if my chances are already gone
I started believing that I could be wrong
But you gave me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

Coz here I am, still holding on!
Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe
You’ll make it through the pain
(or through all your aches and pains)
Weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing
When you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
Then take it by the hand
and show you that you can
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

I fought through the land to stand on the edge
What if today is as good as it gets
Don't know where the futures heading
But nothing's gonna bring me down
I've jumped every bridge, I've run every light
I've risked being safe, I always knew why
I always arise...

[repeat chorus]

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
B-reak every rule
coz there’s nothing
between you and your dreams
Every step you climb another mountain
Every breathe its harder to believe
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

American Idol Season 8: Finale - WINNER: KRIS ALLEN

My two favourite finalists this season, as Ryan introduced

David Cook performed Permanent. This song will be put on Itunes tonight and all proceeds benefit ABC Squared. It was so emotional and he did get teary in the end. He hugged Ryan a little bit longer. Camera zoomed to Carrie Underwood. Hmm..

And the winner is...

American Idol Season 8: Top 3

Adam Lambert: Adam did One (U2) & Cryin' (Aerosmith). I liked his performance for One, yeah, no doubt it was the best rock performance that night, but Cryin' is sumthin'... i was a fan of Aerosmith for Crazy & Cryin' - and i thought the performance was ok. Right song choice this time.

Kris Allen: I loved both Kris' performance - Apologize (OneRepublic) and Heartless (Kanye West). Apologize - it was so perfect - 99% like Ryan Tedder's version!! I listened to Kanye's version of Heartless, and no doubt, i love Kris' version more... KRIS is the one, people!!!

Danny Gokey: Told ya last week that i might not be able to judge Danny fairly. I just don't know why. Everyone i knew just confirmed that they felt the same way about him. Danny sang Dance Little Sister (Terence Trent D'Arby), yes, the voice was perfect for the song, but i thought it was a boring performance. And the 2nd song - You Are So Beautiful - i realised that i have never really listen to 'Danny' in this competition. I mean, he sang other people's song, but where's Danny's song? Now, does he really want to sing other people's song his whole life? And does he think that people would still want to listen to him if he decided to do exactly that? Urghh... enough of him... The only time that i actually listen to Danny was when he sang 'What Hurts The Most'. I am upset that Danny didn't let his true self be in this competition.

Updates @ 10.09am:
OMG... I'm so nervous right now as i waited for the results of Top 3 Week.

I hope Kris & Adam will be in the Finale, but don't forget the power of Gokey's fans voting...

OMG!!! Danny is eliminated.... weeehoooooooooo....

Kradam FTW!!!

One Moment with David Cook

Did i talk to David Roland Cook just now?

I FREAKING DID!!!!!!!!!!! oh god!!

Cook's Malaysian fans had a video conference just now around 5.15 pm. It was setup by Sony BMG Malaysia and Sony BMG Philippines. Cook did the same for his Thais and Singaporean fans. SonyBMG = our Magic Rainbow. LOL!!

10 of us (plus flat!Phui San) plus 1 from press got to ask him a question and some of got to ask 2q. My question for him was: What is your plan for the band in the next 5 years and have you guys decided on a name for the band yet? He answered all of our questions but i hardly really listened to the answer as i was (still am) kind of amazed by this whole experience and just concentrated with his face, voice and expression.

It was surreal - talking to Cook... i'm still pinching myself right to this moment. He is just as adorable, brilliant, humble and as sexy as potrayed by those who already met him.

Yes, i'll be going to his back-to-back concert with Archie in Manila in just less than 3 days...

American Idol Season 8: Top 4

A lot of mix emotion was felt when i watched Top 4 performances. And like most of American Idol fans, particularly Kris Allen's, were pissed off. Yes.. i felt a little bit of that too.. Why? Let's recap.

This week's mentor for Rock n Roll theme is the legendary Slash, who was the lead guitarist of Gun's N Roses.

And my ranking are:

Adam Lambert: *standing O for true RocknRoll God this season* (enuff said... ). Whole Lotta Love for ya Adam...

Allison Iraheta: She's so damn good with Cry Baby!! I've been saying this a few times - she never failed to impress me with her performances. And not every 17-year-old can easily impress a lot of people. Allison did just that and this is a sign of a true potential. I tell ya, she'll win a Grammy one day. Oh, I like her hair, by the way..

Adam / Allison: OMG!! That was the best duet ever!!! Allison & Adam looked cute when they hug after the song ended. I just wish they pick a song with more lyrics... haha... It ain't a slow ride for both of you after Idol, i bet.

Kris Allen: Rock-n-roll is not his genre.. BUT.. i say but.. he did look like a light-pop rock star.. and i like his performance. Kris is just... Kris. And no 1000 Simon's comments would ever change or shake the talented singer in him. Come together now, Kris' fans!! Vote for him like there's no tomorrow!!

Kris / Danny: Seriously, what i only like in this duet was their vocal harmony. Yes, it is harmonious... but i can't really see the chemistry of what a duet should portray.. I watched Kris looked at Danny a few times as if to share the enthusiasm of singing a duet but Danny just being what i thought of enacting the song's title.. Renegade. He seems like a different person this week, i noticed. Wow to increasing numbers of Danny haters across the virtual world.

Danny Gokey: I haven't actually listen to Aerosmith's version of Dream On. But after listened to Danny's version, i know now that no raspy, hoarse voice would ever make a singer a rock star. I feel that i'm not able to judge him fairly after all this. He let this to happen, and it's a shame. Maybe i'll change my opinion later on.. who knows.. but this week, he's not it.

Updates 7.5.09:
Paula Abdul, No Doubt & Daughtry performed.

Eliminated: Allison Iraheta!!! I kind of predicted this if Kris is safe - Danny & Adam - they have huge fan base... so it's either Kris or Allison. God, i got teary as she sang Cry Baby again. But i know she's gonna be big soon.. maybe bigger than Kelly Clarkson.

Breaking News by David Cook

David, as seen at the race

Adam Cook, David Cook's brother, who's been battling brain tumor since 10 years ago, died peacefully yesterday

David made the announcement just after he finished May 3rd Race for Hope in Washington DC earlier this morning.

Please post your thoughts and/or prayers, words of support & understanding for Dave & his family here.

Here's the article:

After a long and valiant struggle with brain cancer, “American Idol” winner David Cook’s brother Adam died at 1 a.m. this morning at a hospice in Terre Haute, IN.

A family friend told exclusively, “Adam passed away peacefully.

“He was surrounded by his family, including his wife Kendra, his children, his father and his step-mom, among others.”

David was rushing back on a jet when his beloved brother died.

“The family thought that Adam would go much sooner than this, actually,” said the Cook family friend.

“That’s why David left his tour a few weeks back so that he could be with Adam.

“They said their goodbyes then.”

But Adam, 36, rallied briefly after that…and David returned to his concert tour.

“He took a turn for the worse this weekend and David rushed to get home.”

But sadly he couldn’t make it in time.

Last year, friends of the stricken lawyer arranged a $45,000 trip on a chartered medical jet to Los Angeles so Adam could see David perform on Idol.

Toby: Light On to David Cook!

Al Fatihah to my Grandmother - Allahyarhamah Hindun who lost the battle to Uterus Cancer 22 years back.
