A Far Away View From Portland

YouTube user jordannbrown up in Portland has an interesting view of the Idol Tour. Taken from way back and straight on, even with zoom it's a far away look at the stage.

First the Intro video to the show:

Then a group number combo, "Just The Way You Are / What Makes You Beautiful:"

I've heard that DeAndre Brackensick and Jessica Sanchez are dating. That DeAndre is really sneaky, like a wolf in sheep's clothing.

A Better "Home"

I didn't much like Phillip Phillips' "Home," but this version, by 12-year-old brothers, is much better:

I think they call themselves "Sharp Turn Ahead."

Just one video of Ace Young & Diana DeGarmo singing "Us Against the World." However, the video, by user GCspFOBpatd81, had horrible audio. So I downloaded it and had a hard time fixing it up.

Jessica Sanchez in "Miss Saigon" Movie?

This article from the Manila Bulletin says that Jessica Sanchez is in the running to play the lead role of Kim in the film adaptation of the Broadway Musical "Miss Saigon." The role of Kim was made famous by Philippine star Lea Salonga over 20 years ago.

The article also says that Charice and Thia Megia were also being considered:

I don't think that Charice should even be considered given she's not very good looking. Thia Megia's voice might be a bit low and kind of jazzy for the role. Even Jessica's voice with her R&B leanings and sometimes wide vibrato is not ideal, but Jessica has shown she can change her voice as needed.

Here's Lea Salonga on a 1989 TV show recreating the "Sun and Moon" song and scene from "Miss Saigon:"

The video was originally uploaded by user mimibarthez, but I downloaded it so I could boost the volume, which was very low.
