Western Conference Finals are now on going between Detriot Red Wings and San Jose Sharks. The Sharks bested the Redwings last night with a 2-1 win against their traditional conference rivals.
Would it be great if Thia Megia would sing the National Anthem during one of these Sharks home game?
San Jose Sharks being the only Bay Are NHL Team, should let Thia Megia sing the National Anthem on 1 of their Sports Center televised games, since we are pretty sure that Thia who was born in Redwood City and lived in Hayward before moving to Mountain House a couple of years ago will be thrilled to sing the Anthem for the Sharks @ the Shark Tank.
Other American Idol stars who have sung the anthem during NHL games while under the American Idol contract includes Kelly Pickler for the Predators and David Archuleta.
Thia have sung for almost all of the Major League teams in the Bay Area, namely San Jose Giants, San Francisco Giants and San Franciso 49ers as well as the Stanford Cardinals
Here is Thia singing the US Anthem right before her American Idol debut in the AT&T Park Home of the World Champion San Francisco Giants.

Remember the groovy night of Heatwave back during Motown Week? Turns out that the backup vocals during that live show belongs to the 2/3 sister duo of the Clique Girlz.
As Thia Megia uses the full stage to dance along the song, you can see Destiny and Paris bopping along in sync in the background.
Turns out that after Ariel Monroe the 1/3 part of the Clique Girlz left the group, Destiny and Paris have been with Interscope records all along.

Right before the end of AGT, a YT friend JDNorcal (another early supporter of Thia) have compiled a list of Thia Megia's old videos that have now been inaccessible to most of her newer fans.
Its good to know that Thia Megia's name is being thrown left and right out in the press even after she was eliminated from the American Top 10 weeks ago.
Her name came up again in a New York Post piece this week as they tackle NBC's new reality show "The Voice", who are getting former American Idol cast-off on the Show.
Although we highly doubt that Thia Megia will be allowed by American Idol franchise to participate (She's under American Idol until the end of the Season 10 tour this summer), this publicity from a respected and higly influential daily is most welcome.

Finally found a pic that shows Thia's outfit at its full glory during the Performance in American Idol last Wednesday. And she is indeed stunning with an all Black outfit and the only 1 with a short skirt.
Her outfit reminds me of the other Filipina star on FOX.
Notice both of thier heels!!!

Pop Dust named Thia Megia & Lauren Alaina (tie @ #13) as one of the upcoming tween artist under 17.
LAUREN ALAINA/THIA MEGIA
Sounds Like: A perkier Gretchen Wilson; a very serious Disney princess.
Notable Achievements: Both girls took advantage of Idol’s rule change, auditioning when they were still fifteen. (Thia had previously appeared on America’s Got Talent, which allows contestants of all ages to try out.) Lauren impressed the judges with her soft country twang when she auditioned in Nashville—they proclaimed her the best they had seen in the city. Thia, meanwhile, has earned plenty of praise for her Gleek-y song choices, like “Out Here on My Own” from Fame, and the standard “Smile.”
What Their Fans Are Saying: “You’ve got real, natural, God-given talent.”—Randy Jackson on Lauren Alaina; “That beautiful voice is transcendent.”—Jennifer Lopez on Thia Megia
That's nice considering they are just under Jackie Evancho @ #12 who launched her album last December and made platinum.

Seems that Thia Megia and the rest of the Eliminated American Idols was still on hand when the lights went out for Stephano Langone. Anybody saw them in the audience Thursday night?
A sighting reported that after the Thursday Elimination the remaining 6 idols and the 7 eliminated ones including Thia had an after elimination party somewhere in LA.
Hopefully she's now flying back to the Bay Area in time for her homecoming parade on Saturday, cause we are really waiting for her to be glorified by her home region and the 4 Northern California county's she made a playground of before her American Idol stint.
MOUNTAIN HOUSE, CA, April 22, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Questa at Mountain House bills itself as a great place to settle in and put down roots. Its residents are showing us why Saturday, April 23, as they throw a party for Thia Megia, one of their own. Thia has just finished her "American Idol" run, with a ranking among the top 11 contestants this season.
Thia's ranking makes her future in music very promising and that future starts this summer with "American Idol's" nationwide tour. For now, a hometown welcome and some R & R are on her calendar.
Mountain House residents are kicking off the party at the West Valley Mall at 3200 Naglee Road in Tracy at 1:30 p.m. The welcoming ceremony segues to a police escort for the caravan to Mountain House's Central Avenue and a community party in Thia's honor.
The public is invited to both venues. The Mountain House festival is slated for 3 to 7:30 p.m. and highlighting it will be autographs and photo opportunities with Thia. Food vendors, face painting, a caricaturist, jumpy house and a live band will provide fun and entertainment for all ages.
"We are gathering to congratulate Thia on her amazing success as the youngest contestant in one of America's most challenging competitions," said Celeste Farron, Mountain House resident and event organizer. "We cannot begin to say how proud we are of our beautiful, talented Thia and how excited we are to see her now prepare for her American Idol tour!"
Thia Megia, 16, is the daughter of Mountain House residents Cynthia and Loreto Megia. Her poise and vocal artistry impressed "American Idol" judges and voters throughout the 9th season of the popular show, landing her among the top 11 who become part of the national tour.
Mountain House "Friends of Thia" will be joined Saturday by county and state officials, area media and by event co-sponsor Shea Homes, LLC, the developer of Mountain House. Adam Hieb, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Shea Homes Northern California, said the celebration was "absolutely typical" of the Mountain House hometown spirit.
"Mountain House has the close knit feeling that reminds us all of the towns and cities of earlier times," Hieb said. "We expect a big turnout of families, friends and neighbors for this welcome party and we are delighted to share in the fun Saturday!"
Mountain House is a thriving new town east of Livermore, and features reserved open space, parks, a library and state of the art K-8 schools. Today's Mountain House has four villages.
