Eduardo Aguirre from Costa Rica with Great Presentation

December 7, 2009

Eduardo Aguirre outdid his rivals in Latin American Idol 2009 in Argentina.  The Costa Rican representative became a real volcano on stage while singing “No tengo dinero” I Have no Money) by Juan Gabriel and “So soy aquel” (I am Him” by the Spaniard Raphael.

Such was his excellence that earned another “Bien Cantao!” (Well Sung) By Jon Secada, while Mimi just stood open-mouthed.  It could not be ignored that the public and even members of the band stood up to applaud the singer.  Not forgetting the fact that the public and even the band members stood to applaud him.  Even judge Oscar Mediavilla acknowledged what I was able to do on stage.

Eduardo Aguirre, the young Costa Rican singer whom no one, much less the judges, expected to get very far outshone the other male singer, Chilean Ruben Alvarez, and made it through to the finals against Dominican Martha Heredia.  In spite of the pleas from the judges and the outright favoritism shown to the Chilean, Eudardo Aguirre’s performance could not be ignored.  He wowed the audience, the Latin American public, and even if grudgingly the judges. 

Eduardo did not hesitate a single moment to show what he could do. He let his Costa Rican fans know that he is going to blow up the finals.  He says he is holding an Ace up his sleeve.  He also said that he has learned to use his voice to showcase the music instead of the other way around. 

The Chilean insinuated that Eduardo Aguirre imitated him, but Eduardo is a Costa Rican original.  He must now rest because he is only a few days away from facing off against Martha Heredia, who is a very worthy competitor.

If you are a fan of Latin American Idol and Eduardo Aguirre, then make sure you tune in on Wednesday night.  The finals this year seem to have lots in store, and we need to see the card that Eduardo says he is holding up his sleeve.  Make sure you are heard through your vote in Costa Rica.  Everything seems to be ready so that the next Latin American Idol will be from Costa Rica.

Eduardo is in the Latin American Idol Finals

December 2, 2009

It’s official!  Costa Rican representative Eduardo Aguirre is one of three finalists in the fourth edition of the “Latin American Idol.”  The Costa Rican got enough votes last night to stay in the competition and make it to the last concert tonight.  

Competition last week was fierce and all four participants really stood out on stage.  However, the public once again believed in the talent of the young man from Esparza, which is a town in the northern section of the province of Puntarenas, not far from Puerto Caldera.

The excitement was more than evident on the face of the Costa Rican, who showed last Wednesday that he has the spirit of an artist, as Jon Secada said.  Tonight will probably be more difficult for the young Costa Rican singer because he will again have to sing two songs and they will determine whether he will be the next Latin American Idol.

Adolfo Arias, head of ICE’s services division in the Telecommunications sector in Costa Rica, said that voting went very smoothly last week.  “It was just as we had expected.  Voting doubled from the previous week and it was the week when the most votes were cast so far this season.  We will be ready for the final onslaught now that Eduardo is in the finals,” he noted.

Eduardo’s followers in Costa Rica must get some of the credit because they have continued to cast their votes to try to put him through to the finals.  The time has come for his followers to really make their vote count so that a Costa Rican can be the next Latin American Idol.

A Great Show by Eduardo Aguirre in Latin American Idol

December 1, 2009

Eduardo Aguirre is flying high.  The Costa Rican representative finally hit its stride and got the best judge comments since he has been competing in “Latin American Idol.”

The unplugged concert really favored, and he even got a second “Bien Cantao” during this fourth season from judge John Secada.

“It was so wonderful.  It was a magical night.  It was time to transmit emotion and I did it,” said Aguirre to national newspaper right after the show in Argentina.

He did so well that even Oscar Eduardo Mediavilla had no negative comments which to direct at the singer.  “It was very funny when I said I had thrown him off,” recalled the young Costa Rican while laughing.

If Eduardo obtains the necessary amount of votes, then he will arrive in Costa Rica the following day to record a special segment for the final.

“I hope they are proud of me because everything I do is with my heart and thinking of my country,” said the singer, who also lamented the passing of Froilan Bolaños.

Therefore, if Costa Ricans give Eduardo Aguirre their support, then he will surely be in the finals.  It remains to be seen whether there will be a Costa Rican in the finals for the second consecutive year.

Very Close to the Finals

November 27, 2009

Two concerts is what separates Costa Rican representative Eduardo Aguirre from the Latin American Idol grand finale.

The young man from Esparza, advanced to the group of five semi-finalists and he will sing two songs in order to fight to keep his place among public’s favorites.

“I’m Proud of the support from my country and what I have shown.  I am going to sing a ballad by Juan Luis Guerra.  If I move on to the seventh concert, I will sing two pop songs, but none by Cristian Castro,” he said.

Aguirre noted that the hardest part is coming and he does not care if the judges sometimes tell others that they are among their favorites.

“I put the pressure on myself.  We all have our minute and a half on stage.  All I need is a little push to reach the final.  I only ask people to continue believing in me and the will hopefully be satisfied with the effort,” he said.

The Chilean, Ruben Alvarez and the Dominican, Martha Heredia, two of his strongest rivals on the show, also made their predictions.

“I am very happy with what I’ve been doing.  People have seemed receptive, but now we five are starting from scratch.  I’ve shown a lot of dancing and now I will offer a more romantic mood,” said the Chilean.

The Caribbean said she is preparing vocally and emotionally.  She denies being overconfident, as the jury told her not long ago.

“Sometimes I seem arrogant, but I am really very simple.  What happens is that the I transform myself when I sing.  I am really preparing myself,” said the brunette, who calls Ruben her strongest rival.

The reprimand that the Costa Rican representative received during “Cantando por un sueño” (Singing for a Dream) where he was told by music producer Fabian Zolo that he must go from being  a puppy to being a man was not in vain.

The producer sees him as being more mature, but there are things he must still improve.  “Without fear of being wrong, I can say that he can get to the finals…but only if he changes his strategy. He has to take more risks, take over the stage.  He is in a comfort zone and he must come out of it.”

Zolo said that the young man has already demonstrated that he can sing, but he must now show himself, show more nuance and be the artist who wants to be the show.  Maria Jose Castillo, a finalist last year, said that she sees the young man from Esparza in the finals against Martha or Ruben.

“He is among the best, no doubt.  He should continue with ballads and vary a little with pop.  We need to see him in that genre to show different facets.  He’s doing a good job and he is paying attention to what the judges say, but I think Mediavilla (Oscar) is a little obnoxious when he makes his comments.”

But even when things seem to be all right, we must support our representative from Costa Rica.  We are asking for your votes so that he can reach the final.

Eduardo Advances in Latin American Idol

November 17, 2009

Eduardo Aguirre, the Costa Rican representative in “Latin American Idol” is getting  gets closer to the semifinal each time.

Last night, he once again got the support of Costa Rica and the rest of Latin America and he moved on to the next round.

The minutes before the elimination round are always tense, and this time you could see it in Eduardo‘s face.

Although judge Oscar Mediavilla has said just about everything to him, such as suggesting that he lose weight, that he does not believe him when he sings and that he had so swing when he sang reggaeton, the public continues to believe in the young man from Esparza.

There is a very difficult challenge coming next week for the Costa Rican.

We continue to call on the support of Costa Rica for our countryman to thus avoid having him leave before the final.
