THE GLEE PROJECT MOVES FORWARD

In Los Angles, California USA at the Sherwood Oaks College for the Entertainment Business then United Artists Records president responded to a student questioning the ethics of executives in the music business. Mogul said, "If its ethics you're looking for you're in the wrong business."

As many of those that have persevered to make it in the music business some get lost along the way by the games that people play is using hopeful talent and abusing them.

Emily Vasquez, 22, who was the third elimination of the The Glee Project (TGP) has gone through one of those experiences that young singers face. In her last episode on TGP she was the most featured on camera contestant during the third episode in which that she stated that she was sexually abused in her career by music producers.

After giving a strong performance in the bottom three singing Bruno Mars' "Grenade" Glee producer Ryan Murphy decided to eliminate her without explanation. The contestants are not directly informed of their elimination. Rather, the bottom three are notified when "the list is up" and discover their fate as they find their name on the list. Following the final callbacks, the eliminated contestant sings lead on a segment of "Keep Holding On" by Avril Lavigne with the rest of the contestants as backup. This time it was Vasquez's turn.

With her departure life goes on for the show in their quest to find a new and different cast member for Glee with the rationale being that since it's a high school theme show that students graduate and Glee will do the same with its cast and bring in new faces.

TGP is an inspiring show particularly for those who have been in a position of being ridiculed by schoolmates. The behind the scenes perspective of what decisions are made for the talent they are looking for as a new cast member for Glee is interesting. It's somewhat of a physiology test with an analogy exercise that only the strong can survive. They are looking for a talent unlike someone who is in the cast of Glee.

Unlike Glee the TGP viewer gets a chance to learn what goes on in the entertainment business behind the scenes. Throughout the series TGP contestants reveal their personal lives and experiences in trying to break into the entertainment business.

As the show trims off the candidates like American Idol TGP becomes less interesting with fewer personalities involved but there are fireworks ahead.

One of the contestants quit the show over a sexuality theme issue saying it conflicted with his personal beliefs. It turns out the producers favored him to win. In the episode in which he quit he saved someone that is currently n the final four. Had the contestant not quit he would have been eliminated in that same round.

The contestant that quit received praise throughout the competition from the producers and was considered the most likely to win the contest. It was later revealed that he is the son of a minister. After he departed the show he recorded a song that reached # 16 o the I-Tunes charts.

The Glee Project is a WORTH WATCH.

CAMBODIA'S SABAY CONTEST Pits Young vs. Old

Cambodia's Sabay Contest is attempting to be Cambodia's Grammy Awards. They are trimming a list of 190 Khmer entertainers in three categories best MC/TV host, singer and actors. September 1 the list will be pruned down to the Top 10 male and females in each category. The final is scheduled for December 2nd.

The public is supposedly the only decider of who can win via telephone text voting. All mobile phone companies with the exception of one are involved in providing their systems to facilitate the voting.

Contestants range from 16 up with no age limit. The most senior contestants have been on Cambodian television since the beginning of the 21st Century from our observations. They include TV 3' Socheat Kong (listed as 33), CTN's Uk Chenda (listed as 36) and TV 3's Meas Molina (listed as 28). Ouen Leakita 16, is the contest's youngest competitor.

Given that most of the cell phone users in Cambodia are under the age of 25 and would be most likely to take the time to vote it will be interesting to see the results and integrity of the voting. If the young voters select an older contestant it would be a shock.

Early on in this century Socheat Kong was virtually the only face on Cambodian magazines covers. The advent of talent and beauty contests for youths resulted in a new crop of new faces gracing the covers of magazines and hosting television shows. Those TV shows the new generation hosted are with themes more popular with the younger age group. What's up??? Stay tuned…

STUPID, VIOLENT KHMER MUSIC VIDEOS

Given the reputation of Khmer society being violent there are some underlying reasons why that opinion could be valid, that being bad influences.

Cambodia has a designated music video channel that is very popular. Thursday August 18th between 8-9 AM two disturbing videos were aired. One was three Khmers in the late teens to early 20's each swigging on there own whiskey bottles staggering around the stage with a band and dancers behind them. That visual left us with the opinion that the point of the video was to consume alcohol and be obnoxious.

The other video was a girl involved with two men thus creating the jealousy factor. The girl preferred one over the other and was pulling away from her most aggressive suitor who played the role of a buster bad ass. In one of the closing scenes the other boyfriend was in the hospital with a gash on the left side of his face apparently from a knife attack.

Cambodia apparently is absent of regulations as to what is acceptable to be aired on TV as there is in the Western world where rating systems area applied for films and absolute NO's as to what can be aired on television. In America some of the NO's are not permitting advertising of liquor (alcohol) or cigarettes. With the apparent lack of laws such irresponsible programming in the realm the fault lies with the script, the production company and the television outlet. Is there any wonder why there is such a high incidence of child rape, death by drink driving and murder in the kingdom?
