Extra Presents: The Voice

Extra The Voice

The Extra taping last night was extra special! The judges and hosts of the TV show The Voice all showed up and boy was the place jam packed!

Do you want to see the photos?! Let me here ya!!!

Applause

Here’s Mario Lopez to welcome everyone to the show

And co-host Renee Bargh went on to the stage to join him

It’s  a bit of a wait before the guests arrived so Chunky (that guy above holding the “applause” sign) entertained the crowd in the meantime. It was a lot of fun hearing his non-sense jokes! Lots of freebies were given to the crowd as well, like T-shirts and cardboard cutouts of the judges’ heads. Guess who’s head was the most in demand?! *I’m at a payphone trying to call home, all of my change I spent on you…* yep… Adam Levine! Even guys were asking for it. I was one of them haha. Moving on…

Hosts Carson Daly and Christina Milian were the first to hit the stage…

One of the best-selling music artists of all time, Christina Aguilera!!!

Winner of this year’s CMA Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Song of the Year for “Over You”,  Blake Shelton!!!

And last but not the least… my favorite, but before anything, let me tell you the cons of watching a live TV show taping. Compared to a concert or any stage performances where you see the performers in full view, a TV show taping will give you a harder time seeing the people on stage since most of the camera men and their equipment will be blocking your sight. Remember, it’s TV-first, live audience-second. Unless you get a really good spot then you will have no problem but for most of the audience, having the crew’s backs blocking your photos is pretty common.

Okay back to my judges’ introduction. This guy doesn’t really need one. Arguably the sexiest male vocalist of this era, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine!!!

And he’s on a hole haha. You’re asking what the hell is up with that picture?! Well, that’s the cameraman’s back, the tripod and some other crew member’s body blocking my shot! I just photoshopped it a bit to make it look somewhat artistic. It does pass as “artistic”, right?! I uploaded the hi-res photo, just click on it and save on your computer. Make it your Adam Levine-On-A-Hole desktop wallpaper haha.

Some lucky audience members were brought to the stage to ask them questions. There were some singing as well where the judges had to choose from four contestants which one they liked the most.

Extra Audience

Now here’s all of them with Mario Lopez. Photo was taken from the big screen…

You can tell they were all having a good time, especially Adam who wasn’t able to control himself from laughing!

By the way, R&B Singer Usher and Latin Pop Goddess Shakira will be temporarily replacing Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera for Season 4 of The Voice, which is scheduled to air in the spring of 2012. They will then return for Season 5.

That’s all folks!


Pitch Perfect Red Carpet Premiere

Pitch Perfect Movie Poster

Pitch Perfect held its premiere on the 24th of September 2012 at Pacific’s Cinerama Dome in Sunset Blvd, LA. I had to choose between attending this premiere and Frankenweenie, which was held simultaneously just a few blocks away at the Grauman’s Thater. My childhood crush Winona Ryder is on the other side, so as Tim Burton but still, I had to chose this. Why?! FAT AMY was here!

A lot of fresh faces here folks. It’s nice to see these young men and women gracing the red carpet. I hope they all make it big here in Hollywood.

Problem for me when it comes to new faces though, is that it’s hard to caption haha! Now if anyone can help me name these beautiful ladies, I’d love you forever…

I’ll just call her Ms. Red Lips for now…

…and this one’s Ms. Beautiful Smile…

…here’s Madame Cool…

… there’s also a guy whose name I don’t know… I’ll call him Surfer Dude for now…

And now here are my favorite shots of the night.
