Glee Setting the Trend: Charice Fans be Gleeful!

Glee Setting the Trend: Charice Fans be Gleeful!

Three weeks ago, Charice outdid Beyonce’s original version of “Listen” when her cover of the same song charted higher in the Billboard Hot 100. It’s a good thing Glee decided to release her amazing performance as a single immediately after the episode’s airing since this is actually Charice’s highest charting solo entry to the Billboard Hot 100 chart at no. 38 (her hit, “Pyramid” peaked at no.1 in the Billboard Dance chart); while her “Telephone” duet with Glee co-star, Lea Michele, charted at no. 23.

David Foster: “Being Good is the Enemy of Being Great”

David Foster: “Being Good is the Enemy of Being Great”

Hey Chasters! Thanks for all the nice comments. Honestly, being there in person for the event was really a privilege, so I truly felt an obligation to provide you guys as full of an account of actually being there in person with us from start to finish.

I want to make one point about this whole “DFF mistake” issue. Like in all my previous comments I’ve written before, I think the KEY thing to always take into account whenever we see or read anything on the t.v. or internet is CONTEXT. Without proper context, one quote or short video sequence can come off to appear completely differeng than what actually happened. That is why I felt the need to include as much detail as possible in the two reports to give you guys the ‘full picture’ of what went down vs. the short snippets here and there found elsewhere.
