The duel … er, duet


E-mail to a distraught relative: “Quit fussing. When everyone has forgotten what Phillip Phillips’ sounded like, they will remember Jessica Sanchez’s historic, palate-shattering duet (duel?) with Jennifer Holliday. I think the girl was thus still high on endorphins when the winner’s name was read and it wasn’t hers. Either that, or she had developed a mind-altering crush on him. In any case … she’s very likely looking at a future career as bright as Jennifer Hudson’s, who finished seventh in 2004 or, in the very least, Adam Lambert’s, who lost to whatshisname.”

    Puro kuwento lang ang ginagawa ng mga fans ni Jessica pero hindi bumibili ng itunes songs niya.

    Sa ngayon, ang kailangan ni Jessica ay makabenta.

    Paano mag-gagamble sa kanya ang mga producers kung wala siyang sales?

    Ang mga runner-ups na kinontrata ng mga producers pagkatapos ng
    season ay maraming sales sa itunes pagkatapos ng finale kaya nag-gamble
    ang producers.

    First time na nangyari sa runner-up na wala sa Top 10.  ZERO rin si Jessica kahit sa Top 100.  Nakakaawa tuloy siya.

    Si Philip ay 11 ang nasa Top 100 at siya rin ang number 1.

    Para magkainteres ang mga producers kay Jessica, kailangan niyang makabenta sa itunes habang sikat pa siya.

    Sa sales ngayon dapat patunayan ng mga fans ni Jessica na  worth
    siyang i-gamble ng mga producers at hindi iyong puro kuwento lang sa
    youtube, etc.

    Kung ngayon na sikat pa si Jessica ay hindi siya makabenta, paano pa lalakas ang loob ng mga producers?
