Off the List 19

SNL was sooo good last night.  I loved the cold open (Les Mis themed) and Rihanna was great.  Although the green screen for Diamonds was super weird/not cute.

I can’t wait to buy the original, which will be release Nov 19! It is actually a duet with Mikky Ekko, who is a man. Not a woman. Just in case you hear the snippet and get confused.

He is pretty cool too.

I heard this song at work, unfortunately they have transitioned to Christmas music now (Are you kidding me, it’s not even freaking Thanksgiving yet! And there is a Santa photo booth set up too. I work at the mall. It is terrible).

Amateur music hour! And I mean that in a “these are non-professionals who are amazing” kind of way.

This kid is so good!

Ok, so GQ is actually semi-professional.  They competed at the 2012 Mid-Atlantic Harmony Sweepstakes and in Singstrong’s ACA-Idol competition.

Even though this makes me laugh, I still think it is good.  New Zealand accents are just hilarious to me.
