Tune In Tuesday (2)

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by GReads in which bloggers share some of their favorite music.

I started listening to Alexz Johnson when I was but a wee Melanie watching So Weird on the Disney Channel. (I was a paranormal junkie as a kid. This has clearly changed over time.) She took over as the main character in the show’s last season, and she has an amazing voice.

Later on, I got sucked into watching Instant Star when I found out that she played the lead in that. It’s my not so secret guilty pleasure show. Basically, it’s a Canadian teen drama about a girl who wins a (fake) reality tv music contest. There’s lots of fantastic eye candy, and every episode features a new song. I can watch it over and over and I love it every time. Don’t judge. “Skin” is one of my favorite songs from the show, and Alexz Johnson just put up a fairly recent acoustic version on YouTube.

Johnson is not currently involved in any TV shows and is primarily working on developing her career as a musician now. In addition to all the Instant Star music she now has her own albums Voodoo and Reloaded (which is basically a more commercial remix of Voodoo).

  • Ooh, Alexz! My friend actually JUST saw her in concert last week or so.

    ‘Instant Star’ was totally my guilty pleasure. I had such a crush on Spiederman.

    • So jealous! I would love to see her live. Hoping for a US tour someday.

      Spiederman is adorable, but Tommy is extraordinarily hot. And Jamie is not so bad by the end either. Ahem, nor is Kewst. Eye candy all around 😛

  • I thought I was the only person alive who watched So Weird!!! It is so nice to know I am not alone. I always wondered what happened to that show and all it’s actors. I’m glad she is working on her music career because I LOVE the voice!

    • I was more than a little obsessed with that show, but nobody ever seems to know what it is if I reference it. Also nice to know that I’m not alone!
