We do not have prizes on the first two seasons except for EC Cards and Web Award plaque. Last year, we held the first ever season that offers real prizes amounting to 150$ over all.Now it went up to $180 over all including the tokens and other prizes. Not to mention our Web Hosting service provided by our Sponsor.

TOP FIVE X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCES

Tadah! Another Top Five for you guys! I am such a big fan of any Singing competition. I just love music so much despite of the fact that i can't sing. Oh actually I CAN SING, however, I CAN"T SING WELL haha. Anyway, listed below are my personal favorites and the list itself is not done subjectively so you guys are free to share your personal picks to this category. Since the Finale is nearly approaching, i want to make a list related to Xfactor. Listed below are my

TOP FIVE X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCES

TOP 5 X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCE
"THE PRETENDER BY JOSH KRAJCIK"

On his group, i am actually not a big fan of this guy because i am paying too much attention to my bet which is Stacey Francis but i started to notice him after he performed an amazing rendition of Foo Fighters' "The Pretender". Though I am not really into his genre, he made me , somehow, appreciate the world of rock music. Right now, his one of the Top 3 finalists along side with Chris Rene and Melanie.



TOP 4 X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCE
"SOMEONE LIKE YOU BY MELANIE AMARO"

I know, on the very first place, that Melanie will go this far. She's one of my bet actually along with Drew and Chris. Anyway, the original Adele version is still the best for me but Melanie sang it with a different approach. It was more uptempo and a club-like music but the high note at the very end is simply amazing.


TOP 3 X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCE
"IF I WERE A BOY BY RACHEL CROW"

Rachel Crow is indeed a crowd pleaser not just because of her age but also because of her powerful vocals despite of her very young age. If I were The Boy performance was, by far, my most favorite from her which actually surprised the judges as she performed it very smoothly and she sounded more mature here too.


TOP 2 X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCE
"IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE BY DREW RYNIEWICZ"

I don't mean to be so bias on this list but YES i am hahaha. Drew is actually my first bet and it is very disappointing that she got kicked off so early. Her "Baby" version is actually a great rendition but my most favorite from her would be her Boot camp piece which is "It Must have Been Love" (I even downloaded it online hahaha). I just love how soothing her voice is and i never get tired listening to it.


X FACTOR'S BEST PERFORMANCE
"YOUNG HOMIE BY CHRIS RENE"

This guy really has the X factor when it comes to originality. He was able to write his own piece and deliver amazingly. Young Homie is actually his audition piece which became really popular. Regardless of his story, I don't think he needs more sympathy to win this game because he is really talented and I have a feeling that he will win this competition. Aside from Young Homie, he also sang "Where do you go From here" , another original song .

TOP FIVE BIGGEST HEADLINES OF 2011

Despite of my inactiveness these past few months I can't really say that I never had a blasting 2011. Actually the fact that I am still here, writing a blog post, spending my time with my family, waking up everyday with no illness are just few of the great reasons why i should be very grateful of 2011. Oh and not to mention my new job. Anyway, 2011 was such such a huge blast indeed not just for me but for everyone else in the world especially when these biggest headlines occurred.
Some headlines were just very influential and remarkable while others are pretty bad to remember yet left a mark in the history.
Who would forget the twin bombing and the mass shooting in Norway which killed more or less 80 people? How about the confirmed death of Osama Bin Laden or the final lift off of the space shuttle Atlantis? How did you react when Oprah bids goodbye on her long time talk show These are just few of the remarkable ones who have made a huge impact in the history.
Now listed below are five of the biggest headlines that left a huge mark in 2011.

TOP FIVE BIGGEST HEADLINES OF 2011

TOP 5 BIGGEST HEADLINE OF 2011
"CHARLIE SHEEN GOT FIRED FROM HIS OWN SHOW"



In January 2011, production of Two and a Half Men went on hiatus while Sheen underwent a substance rehabilitation program in his home, his third attempt at rehab in twelve months. The following month, however, CBS canceled the season's four remaining episodes after Sheen publicly made derogatory comments about the series' creator, Chuck Lorre, and Warner Bros. officially banned Sheen from entering its production lot. Sheen, already the highest-paid actor on television, responded by publicly demanding a 50 percent raise, claiming that in comparison to the amount that the series was making, he was "underpaid."CBS and Warner Bros. fired Sheen from Two and a Half Men on March 7, 2011. He was replaced by Ashton Kutcher. In the aftermath of his dismissal, Sheen remained vocally critical of Chuck Lorre, and filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros., which was settled the following September 26.

TOP 4 BIGGEST HEADLINE OF 2011
"THE ROYAL WEDDING"


The wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine Middleton took place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London. The build-up to the wedding and the occasion itself attracted much media attention, with the service being broadcast live around the world, and being compared and contrasted in many ways with the 1981 marriage of William's parents, Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer. Much of the attention focused on Kate Middleton's status as a commoner marrying into royalty.Over 5000 street parties were held to mark the Royal wedding throughout the United Kingdom and one million people lined the route between Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. In the United Kingdom TV audiences peaked at 26.3 million viewers with a total of 36.7 million watching part of the coverage. The ceremony was viewed live by tens of millions more around the world including 72 million on the YouTube Royal Channel.

TOP 3 BIGGEST HEADLINE OF 2011
"STEVE JOBS DEATH"


Jobs died at his California home around 3 p.m. on October 5, 2011, due to complications from relapse of his previously treated islet-cell neuroendocrine pancreatic cancer, resulting in respiratory arrest. He had lost consciousness the day before, and died with his wife, children and sister at his side. Jobs announced his resignation as Apple's CEO on August 24, 2011. "Unfortunately, that day has come," wrote Jobs, for he could "no longer meet [his] duties and expectations as Apple's CEO". Jobs became chairman of the board and named Tim Cook his successor. Jobs had worked for Apple until the day before his death. For two weeks following his death, Apple's corporate Web site displayed a simple page, showing Jobs's name and lifespan next to his grayscale portrait. Shortly after his death was announced, ABC, CBS, and NBC interrupted scheduled programming to broadcast this news. Numerous newspapers around the world carried news of his death on their front pages the next day. Several notable people, including US President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and The Walt Disney Company's Bob Iger commented on the death of Jobs. oth Apple and Microsoft flew their flags at half-staff throughout their respective headquarters and campuses. Jobs is buried at Alta Mesa Memorial Park, the only non-denominational cemetery in Palo Alto.

TOP 2 BIGGEST HEADLINE OF 2011
"MUAMMAR GADDAFI'S DEATH
"
On 20 October 2011, a National Transitional Council (NTC) official told Al Jazeera that Gaddafi had been captured that day by Libyan forces near his hometown of Sirte. He had been in a convoy of vehicles that was targeted by a U.S Predator Missile which was followed by a French air strike on a road about 3 kilometres (2 mi) west of Sirte, killing dozens of loyalist fighters. Gaddafi survived but was shortly afterwards captured by a rebel militia who claimed he had taken refuge with several of his bodyguards in a drain underneath the road west of the city. Around noon NTC fighters found the group and took Gaddafi prisoner. Shortly afterward, he was shot dead. At least four mobile phone videos showed rebels beating Gaddafi and manhandling him on the back of a utility vehicle before his death. One video pictured Gaddafi "sodomized with some kind of stick or knife" or possibly a bayonet, after his capture. A rebel who identified himself as Senad el-Sadik el-Ureybi later claimed to have shot and killed Gaddafi. He claimed to have shot Gaddafi in the head and chest, and that it took half an hour for him to die. On 25 October 2011, the National Transitional Council announced that Gaddafi was buried at an unidentified location in the desert.

THE BIGGEST HEADLINE OF 2011
"TSUNAMI IN JAPAN"

The 2011 Tohoku Earthquake was a magnitude 9.0 (Mw) undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan. It was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan, and one of the five most powerful earthquakes in the world overall since modern record-keeping began in 1900. The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves, which reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku's Iwate Prefecture. The Japanese National Police Agency confirmed 15,840 deaths, 5,950 injured, and 3,642 people missing across eighteen prefectures, as well as over 125,000 buildings damaged or destroyed. The earthquake and tsunami caused extensive and severe structural damage in Japan, including heavy damage to roads and railways as well as fires in many areas, and a dam collapse. Around 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan were left without electricity and 1.5 million without water. Many electrical generators were taken down, and at least three nuclear reactors suffered explosions due to hydrogen gas that had built up within their outer containment buildings after cooling system failure. Residents within a 20 km (12 mi) radius of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant and a 10 km (6.2 mi) radius of the Fukushima II Nuclear Power Plant were evacuated. The aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami included both a humanitarian crisis and a major economic impact. The tsunami resulted in over 300,000 displaced people in the Tōhoku region, and shortages of food, water, shelter, medicine and fuel for survivors. In response the Japanese government mobilized the Self-Defence Forces, while many countries sent search and rescue teams to help search for survivors.
