Truly, Madly, Deeply

... in love with David Cook's rendition of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby"! What a performance it was! I was happy when I found out this week was going to be all about my favorite singer, Mariah Carey, who is such a DIVA and truly deserves that title. However crazy her pre-performance demands are rumored to be, they should be duly fulfilled seeing that she is definitely one of the best singers ever! Her performance tonight was totally mesmerizing, just as much as David Cook's.

When I first heard Mariah's version of
"Always Be My Baby", it was during the time B & I first met. It eventually became our song, one that I never tire of listening. And to hear a male's version of this song was something completely unexpected, although in a very nice way! David Cook made me swoon tonight. Listening to him sing to me and only ME was totally captivating. I was brought back to the first time B and I fell in love, so it was really a wonderful heartfelt performance for me and I loved it!

I was quite taken with Jason Castro's interpretation of "I Don't Want To Cry" as well. For me, it was his first beautiful performance and yes, he does have lovely eyes indeed! And while it was cool to hear Elliot Yamin sing on Idol again (he was my favorite back in Season 5), it was also disturbing to see him looking more scruffy than ever! ;)

Anyway, it was a good Idol week overall and I'm glad to see both David A. and David C. are still in the running to be the next American Idol. I will leave you now with my favorite performance for this week. Before that, I'd like to give a shout out to my wonderful friend, Bobby! Y
ou know the drill Bobby, please vote, vote and VOTE for the two Davids next week! And hey, it's already Friday, so happy weekend everyone! :)

hooray for David Cook. I'm a huge fan of his, so I'm biased la ... hehehe ... but I agree, it's probably going to be David v David and Bobby, send a vote my way for DC too ... LOL!

Yeah agree with you. Even Randy stood up. Both Davids are awesome!

A Married Man digs David C. performance.

Too bad M.Johns is out.

J@n!ce April 18, 2008 2:09 PM

Mariuca April 18, 2008 5:09 PM

Oh but it's true what Nick... he did an excellent job this week, so you're not being totally biased! ;)

Hola MMan! Happy to see u here this Friday afternoon, ready for the weekend? And woo hoo for David C huh? Michael Johns was good too and yes it's a pity to see him leave last week. :)

Mariuca April 18, 2008 5:20 PM

Hi Janice! I bet u're happy it's Fri and the weekend is here!

Kristy left yesterday...thank god!!! Pretty or not, she was really getting on my nerves for sticking around so long and "sacrificing" Michael J last week! ;)

Ratu Syura April 18, 2008 5:31 PM

Too bad I'm not really a fan of DC. I'm more of an MJ person. But I'm sure glad that Kristy is finallyyyy out! Phewww!! And Mariah Carey is DIVAlicious!!

Mariuca April 18, 2008 5:46 PM

Wah really Syura? David C is totally hot for me right now he he! Oh yay, finalmente - Bye bye Kristy! She was such a spoiler to begin with, am so glad she's OUT!! And ahhhhh....Mariah is still da best! :):):)

NafaSg April 18, 2008 8:09 PM

Oh yes we are all relying on Bobby to do the voting. Hehe! The two Davids should be in the final two!!! Can't wait for the finale to arrive. =)=)=)

Hi friend...good luck in our Battle of the Blogs....I've got some hot cheerleaders up against your American Idol.
Have a great weekend...

Mariuca April 18, 2008 9:33 PM

Ha ha ha NAFA, I hope Bobby is reading this..Our Top 2 being the 2 Davids will all depend on him now lolz!! Pressure! ;)

Mariuca April 18, 2008 9:35 PM

Oh no, hot cheerleaders eh Roxy? I hope my David will survive the battle lolz... good luck to u too dear! :)

Princess in Galoshes April 18, 2008 11:31 PM

Hi! I just voted for you in Battle of the Blogs, but I had to come back and comment, I loved David Cook's version on AI, too. This season is so much better than last year!

calgraden April 18, 2008 11:47 PM

My vote will go to David..haha coz he sing my super Diva Mariah song...:)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 12:39 AM

Hola Princess! Thanks so much for coming back to vote!;)

Oh yeah, David was totally rocking last concert, I can't get enough! Can't wait for the next concert. :):):)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 12:40 AM

Hola Cal! Another Mariah fan in da house, welcome! :):):)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 1:40 AM

Wah!! Thanks for putting this up.. I always seem to miss AI nowadays.. seriously don't know why lahh.. always out or doing something... I love this rendition of the song.. this guy always manage to do something fantastic with old songs.. I love the way he sang "Hello" as well :)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:10 AM

Hi LJ! Did u get a new modem or are u at Azwaj's office?

Oh you missed a great show woman, I'm sure I'm not the only one who melted watching David C perform! ;)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:16 AM

Am at Azwaj's office.. the connection here is slow coz they are working on a project that require streaming or really not in the mood to bloghop lah..

Yeah..I watched a bit and actually caught David A performance but not the rest. Thanks for putting up David C video... I like!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:19 AM

Well, I hope u get ur modem soon dearie! Tak best kan bloghop if connection is slow, but thanks for visiting me yay! :)

I actually missed David A.'s performance and had to catch the repeat. I also love this video, that's why must have it here so I can watch whenever I wan lolz... :)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:23 AM

That's why lahh.. lucky got google reader..I can see who got new post and besides you are my midnight buddy must visit one....;)

Eh you can download the video you know right???

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:26 AM

Yay HUGS! :):):)

Download the video? You mean this one of David C? Or which one? Confused it seems..

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:31 AM

Download any video from can you know...

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:33 AM

I see... but not really into downloading videos. Prefer to download TV shows if u know what I mean! ;)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:36 AM

Oh definitely.. very the puas..speaking of which... I hate Brooke Logan!!!!... so concern like only Jack matters.. how about Hope and RJ.. tak nampak pun dia with them... asyik with the nanny jer...

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:40 AM

But you know what LJ.. it might come in useful for B, this video DL, so I'll let him know abt it, thanks!

Why did u have to get me started on Brooke?!! :(:(:( We are so angry with here for being so SILLY and SELFISH and perasan!! Just like her sister Katie perasan! :(

And why must she keep on saying that Rick & Taylor is "disgusting", cause she slept with TWO of her daughter's husbands and got baby some more!! ASTAGA or what?!

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:44 AM

Yelah.. if I don't discuss with you.. I'll go crazy I tell you... I think she's so obsessed with T and R.. that's why suddenly so concern with Jack.. aiyoh...Katie pun like you say.. perasaan!!!!.. And isn't it ironic both her and Ridge that say that what's happening to T and R is different than what happened between her and Nick and Dicken!! Crazy biatch I tell you. Double standard!!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:48 AM

He he me too!! Some more Brooke lagi teruk sebab dapat baby lagi with Deacon (I liked his character btw!). And also I wan to bitch abt Bridget...what is her problem? Always telling Nick that she's totally okay with them being sleeping "friends", then why must get all riled up abt the kiss with K? Nick pun satu, tell Bridget la that he just wants to sleep with her, being a guy and all!! :(

LadyJava April 19, 2008 2:53 AM

LOL.. I always spell Deacon like Dicken.. coz he is such a dickhead to me.. lolzz... imagine being so in love with Amber konon.. more like lust.. remember that??

Oh yes.. let's bitch abt Bridget..hehe..she keeps saying go slow.. let's see where it takes us.. but remember when Nick said something about the relationship, she said something like.. oh yeah.. everything is fine when we are in the bedroom... Duh!!! She yg dgt in the afternoons expecting a booty call and then marah kat Nick.. WTF!! lahh kan..

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:57 AM

Ha ha ha! Thank you for understanding how I feel LJ! Geram betul tau dengan si bodoh Bridget tu! The best part, is that whenever she tries to convince him that she's so okay abt their casual relationship, her face will be so confident...padahal in love but bertepuk sebelah tangan!! ;)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 3:02 AM

Oh yeah... Nick tu satu..I think he wants to be the female version of Brooke lahh.. sleep with all the female of the same family...lolzz. but i think deep down he just wants Brooke kan..

Yg cian skali is Taylor.. I really feel for her.. she's so desperate to be with Jack kan..if only si Rick tu not Brooke son and not Phoebe's ex-boyfriend!!! which ep are you up to.. Me dl 16 and 17.. dl terganggu lah coz no internet at home!!! Uwahaaa!!!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:06 AM

Steph's plot is no so exciting right now yeah? ;)

Of coz I pity Taylor, dah la beautiful! But I do hope she won't end up with R cause I just don't feel the chemistry between them. Oh and what's up with Storm? Alih-alih jadi stalker!

Am done DL today's ep, waiting for tomo's ep, then can have Boldie marathon this weekend lolz.. :)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 3:12 AM

hahah Storm tu pun perasan sorang2... Ashley pun tak mao with him.. tak malu tul.. Aiyahh I hope my dl finish before azwaj decide to go home lah...

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:17 AM

Storm dengan Lt. baker 2x5 konon-konon big shot but can't do anything right! I hate it how Brooke expects everyone to understand what Storm did and act like nothing happened. Ridge is right to be concerned. I hope he ends up with Ash!

Don worry, I'm sure Azwaj will wait for u to finish DL! :)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 3:24 AM

Ceh... big shot my A*s.. lolz...Just because he's a lawyer does not mean he specialize in everything kan?? apadah!! Yeah I hope he can Ash get back together.. baru sajak!!!

Yeah another hour to go only...I could leave MF here.. but can't bear to leave her and my new MM!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:28 AM

Of coz u can't leave MF behind. It's better to have her with you, at least blh main game or something while waiting for ur Internet to return! :)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 3:31 AM

Yelah i think so too.. but depa kat luar ni macam senyap jer.. azwaj tu suddenly nanti will knock on my door and ajak balik..aiyohh!!!stress!!!lllolozz!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:35 AM

Ha ha ha I know what u mean! Stressful right, waiting for him to suddenly appear with bad news! Hopefully sempat DL or not u have to return tomorrow I guess. ;)

LadyJava April 19, 2008 3:42 AM

Arghghggh GP! the bad news has arrived... he went.. ok darling.. can pack up!!! Arghhhh!!!! he said.. ok since we have not internet tonight.. we go home and watch "the terminator chronicles" which i dl the other day.... sob sob.. my poor bb dl...

nevermindlah.. can spend some quality time with hubby instead...

Nite nite GP!! have a great weekend ya.. and tomo you shall not sleep alone cabutszzz!!!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:45 AM

Alamak, baru je cakap. Okies, nite nite LJ. Drive safely and I hope u get ur streamyx back tomorrow. If not, better throw a tantrum! :)

MisterZyl April 19, 2008 7:25 AM

Hi Marzie. Thanks again for being the first 3 joining my MBL community. Really appreciate it, and thanks for the comment.

Frankly said, I dont really watch American Idol but sometimes I did, so I didn't know much about it.

Mariuca April 19, 2008 7:54 AM

Hi Faizal! I'm happy to be the first 3, so no worries!

AI entertains me, love it! Have a good weekend. :):):)

Nessa April 19, 2008 8:29 AM

Marzie!! I'm just so glad Kristy is out... let's celebrate :D Yeehaaaa!!!

BTW I love Mariah too.

Bobby Revell April 19, 2008 9:13 AM

Hahahaha...I can't vote for both Davids!!!! I can only vote for one. I was kinda upset that my girl Kristy left this week. The way I see it, David Lee Cook will have a great rock career, and I think winning may cause him problems (like having to sing pop music under contract...something I know he'll hate doing).

I will vote for David A. I think a win would benefit his career more...what do you think?

Hazel April 19, 2008 9:57 AM

hi, just passed by to wish u a happy weekend!

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:07 PM

Nessa, celebrasi time woo hoo!! Anyway, she's been expecting it I'm sure, always so confident that she's gonna be out! ;)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:09 PM

Bobby my friend! He he...oh don't be upset abt Kristy ok? You can concentrate on da guys now he he!

You mean you really can vote for only 1 girl and 1 boy Bobby? Ohhhhh, in that case okay, I think you shld vote for David A. You're definitely right abt it benefiting his career, yay! THANKS Bobby, love ya! :):):)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 2:10 PM

Hi Hazel, thanks for passing by. Happy weekend to u too dearie! :)

Bobby Revell April 19, 2008 2:57 PM

I can only vote for one person, not a boy and girl like it was a few weeks back when they had a separate night for each. Overall, this is the best season. My favorite of all time is Kelly Clarkson, I am crazy about her...haha! Ya know, most of the music I listen to is either hard rock & jazz. However, when it comes to singers, I prefer to hear women. I love Mariah, she is one of the greatest vocalists ever. I am also a huge Christina Aguilera fan. I just wanted to share my musical likes with you:)

Mariuca April 19, 2008 3:30 PM

I see... thanks for telling me the rules Bobby! Okay let's stick to David A. then yeah?

I like Kelly as well, love most of her songs actually! And I like Carrie Underwood too cause she's got a great voice and she's so pretty! Thanks for sharing Bobby!

How about Britney? Ha ha ha... u like? ;)

NafaSg April 19, 2008 5:45 PM

Oh yes Bobby has got the point! He can only vote for one David. So David A for us please? Hehe.

But no pressure for Bobby, coz there would be many others dying to vote for him as well.

Mariuca April 20, 2008 12:12 AM

Hi Nafa, Bobby will be voting for David A. right till the end, aren't you Bobby, my wonderful friend? He he! Thanks for being a great sport! ;)

Farah Deen April 20, 2008 11:59 AM

GP, I was so blown away with David C's performance too. How did he manage to bring the song up to that level? amazing., he's surely talented, but I think, David A might be the next idol. He's so noble and he's so great. I really hope these 2 Davids make it to the finals!

They are the great bunch, and having said that, Akademi Fantasia's standard sucks! Don't we have great talented people like those in the AI? I think, yg kena reject time audition AI, kalau masuk AF mesti menang besar- big time!!!! LOL

Mariuca April 21, 2008 1:52 AM

Oh yay!! I hope the 2 Davids will make it to the finale too, they're the most consistent so far. I loved David C's performance! Besides having it here at my blog, I DL the song and been listening to it la he he...

As for AF, my faves (since I have to pick la kan?) are Nadia, Stacy and Riz. I'm just so happy Saida is out, she was pissing me off to the max! Ha ha ha... of coz cannot compare AF to AI la lolz... :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 21, 2008 4:43 PM

The last time someone made breakfast in bed for me was fasting month 1945. Yes, feeling like a king now, and can I now have Mariah Carey sing as well, while I eat this sambal tumis udang no petai? LOL!!!

Mariuca April 21, 2008 5:10 PM

He he he, amacam? Sedap tak scramble eggs I? Tak kan la makan sambal udang petai for breakfast mah....

Enjoy ur breakfast in bed Zubli, sambil dengar lagu Mariah Carey yeah! ;)

Gelombang Rakyat April 21, 2008 6:32 PM

Oh Telor!!! Sangkakan aper? Tapi kenapa perlu naik Scrambler nak makan telor semudah ini atas katil?

Mariuca April 21, 2008 7:28 PM

Zubli! Sape cakap scrambled eggs mudah? I punya special okay, got cheese and mushroom lagi...fluffy gila he he! :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 21, 2008 7:39 PM

The girls, my collegemates, each of them knows just 3 types of cookings - boiled rice, maggi mee celup, and telor goreng tanpa bawang. Hahahahaha! In Malaysia, amongst the top non well-known! I know you punya fluffy, but how tasty can one get, berbanding dengan telor I. When I presented mine to the girls, ask them how many prefer to be my spouse. Itu baru telor, belum masakan lains lagis...LOL!!!

Mariuca April 21, 2008 11:05 PM

Ha tiga-tiga I terror! ;) But I bet tak leh beat my lasagna! Amacam? Pernah rasa? ;)

Gelombang Rakyat April 22, 2008 7:30 AM

Knowing you, knowing me. Hehehehehe. Now I know you can cook. I am recording all these, sambil tumis udang, nasik lemak, scramble eggs, nasik, maggi mee celup, lasagna, and perhaps more. Yet, I wonder, how come suddenly you can cook, right after we join Facebook..?

Mariuca April 22, 2008 3:02 PM

He he, don forget my famous chicken cacciatore and sardine roll! Yum! Eh mana ada selepas FB je I pandai masak? Ha ha ha... u lagi la, tak pernah masak apa pun utk BFF u ni! :)

Gelombang Rakyat April 22, 2008 8:43 PM

Okay, confirm cook! I now know Facebook needs to provide one more app for those interested in cooking and sending meals to special BFF. Hehehehehe, then we can kaboomboom with our cookin skills...LOL!!!

Anonymous,  April 24, 2008 2:26 PM

Nice said... very nice title of the post. I honor your thinking.

Mariuca April 24, 2008 2:32 PM

Thanks Franchise, hope u enjoyed the post and the video! Go David C! :):):)

Sushi May 30, 2008 9:57 PM

The best had to win! He had more of the "idol" thing going on than the other David, who was just a good singer kid. David Cook rocks! And he's from the same town where my Grandma J lives.

Mariuca May 30, 2008 10:43 PM

Oh yeah Sushi! It was really tough to choose just one winner this season, seeing that the 2 finalists were both awesome. The Davids were both good sports too so am happy for both of them! Wonder what next year will bring! :):):)

LadyJava September 27, 2008 10:08 PM

Yelah Emila..but dia senyap jer skg ni... mana pegi kan??
