The X Factor’s Trevor Moran. And The Drama Continues…

20120927-150436.jpgI almost fell off my chair last night with Apple Store Dancing Machine Trevor Moran’s appearance at the end of the two-hour episode of The X Factor. I thought I was seeing things!

But, it all makes sense and it made me smile, thinking how the late Steve Jobs would love to see the two worlds of arts and technology come together on a reality singing competition.

He was, after all, very passionate about combining both worlds, feeling that the blending of the artistic and technological components in the field of technology was a monumental step in the right direction.

And he was right. Apple’s singular success accounts for this very fact.

As some of you may know, I have another blog devoted to my other passion, technology. Yes, I am a musician AND a geek. Sort of crazy at my age, but there you have it.

Last evening, I churned out a quick article about Trevor, in case you are interested.

It has received oodles of hits and Trevor has been having a grand ‘ole time on Twitter since last night’s show aired.

Tune in to see what actually happens to Trevor. He was unconscious when the show ended. Obviously, he is now fine, but I am absolutely intrigued to see if he advances. He is a cute kid.

Here is a video of Trevor doing what he does best – dancing in an Apple Store. What do you think of him? Cannot wait to hear his singing voice.

One Response to “The X Factor’s Trevor Moran. And The Drama Continues…”

  1. I had not seen that video of Trevor until now, but when I saw him on The X Factor, I wondered why he looked familiar to me. There have been a lot of kids on the talent shows lately and they all look and sound similar. I found another video on YouTube of him singing which his singing is better than his piano playing. My DISH coworker and I were excited to find out these preliminary auditions are over; I’m ready for the intense competition. It is difficult to watch an hour or two our show like these reality shows can be, but now I watch in less time, commercial free with Auto Hop, on my PrimeTime Anytime recordings. That means I also watch more TV than I used to, which is nice for relaxing after working hard all day.
