Speaking of clichés, Heejun Han is a model of Asian impassiveness with an odd twist. He tells the camera he thinks he is a “little good” as a singer, but some of the others who are auditioning are “just crazy good, and now I’m thinking I’m not that good at all.”

[…] We’re getting major cues that this Heejun is a geek show. But no, his audition of Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” is good, and we begin to question the whole impassive act. […] His comic timing is too good. We think the judges just got punked on their own racial stereotypes.

Lisa de Moraes from the Washington Post, on why Heejun Han has become American Idols’ anti-William Hung in a three minute audition clip.

Masia One’s “Warriors Tongue”

Via Christine: “I think this should be her 3rd or 4th album. I hear M.I.A + a deep Jamaican rooted influence, very different from the GTA/ Toronto-based sound from her first record (which I still like).

Significant fact: First FEMALE Rapper ever to be nominated for the Best Rap Music Video at the 2005 MuchMusic Video Awards for “Split-Second Time” off her first album.”
