As well as being an entertainment enthusiast, I am also an avid sports fan. I have played everything from soccer to baseball since the age of two. Although I have never played hockey competitively and am not an expert on the rules, I am very excited that the Chicago Blackhawks are in the finals and NOW up 3-2 in the series!

The Blackhawks beat the Bruins 3-1 tonight, June 22nd 2013. Patrick Kane scored twice while Dave Bolland scored an empty  netter with 13.6 seconds left when the Bruins replaced their goalie with another player in a failing attempt to score a last minute goal on the Blackhawks.

My entire family is from Chicago, so even though I have never lived there, it is very close to my heart.

And now all I can say is LETS GO BLACKHAWKS! Bring another championship back to The Windy City!


Voice Results Finale

AHH! So I’m in Florida at my grandmas house and she doesn’t know her wifi password so I CANNOT get connected to her wifi. But I still wanted to write. So i am writing this on my phone (apologies for any gramarical errors) As predicted, my GIRL Danielle Bradbery was announced as the winner of The Voice Season Four. Also as predicted, The Swon Brothers slid in at third place and Michelle Chamuel was obviously I’m second.

The entire episode was a blast. There were some incredible performances from Bruno Mars, Florida Georgia Line with Nelly, One Republic, Hunter Hayes, Cher and Bob Seger.

However I am so incredible proud of Danielle. Many people across the country questioned her emotion and if she TRULY wanted to win and right when her name was called, all of the non believers had to shut their mouths. She was completely surprised and when asked to sing her finale song, “Born To Fly” she couldn’t even sing the lyrics.

I do believe Danielle deserved to win however this was the closest The Voice finale has EVER been. All three artist will have tremendous careers and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for them.



The Voice Season 4 Finale Predictions

The Voice

In honor of NBC’s The Voice finale being tonight, I thought that I would write a prediction.

I tweeted last week that my thoughts on who would make it to the finale would be Danielle Bradbery, Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers.  Just like I predicted, those were the top three.  However, the real battle this whole season has been fought between Danielle and Michelle.  They both bring different qualities to this season.  Danielle is the youngest in the competition and completely lovable, and Michelle is that nerdy girl that didn’t quite fit in and America fell in love with her.  As far as vocal ability, Danielle takes it.  The quality in her voice is upstanding, and for her age it is unprecedented.  Michelle does have an incredible voice as well, but I do not believe it matches Danielle’s.  I do believe the Swon Brothers will place third on the finale results show tomorrow night, however they have made a mark in the competition and with America.  They are the only duo to make it to a finale on any of The Voice seasons and their last two songs BOTH made it into the top ten of the iTunes singles chart.

But at the end of the day, there must only be one winner, and that winner to me is…..drum roll please…..DANIELLE BRADBERY!  Ever since Danielle stepped onto the stage for the blind auditions to sing her rendition of Taylor Swift’s, “Mean” I knew she was destined for greatness.  Week after week her singles excel on iTunes and she never receives negative criticism from the coaches.
