The Youtube Star
Possibly the bubbliest person you'll ever meet, Jill Marie Thomas is like sunshine on a dark cloudy day. Ever ready with a big bright smile and a big personality, this Youtube star puts everyone at ease from 'hey, hi I'm Jill!' But all the personality aside, Jill's got one of the best voices in the competition and has great chemistry with her guitar too. Plus, she has a tendency to 'David Cook'-up her performances, so expect familiar tunes to get a makeover JMT-style as long as she's around on OMG!
Why did you join OMG!?
I want to showcase my singing. I'm also a songwriter.
What would you do with that $50k if you won?
I'd give half to my mom. It would definitely make things easier. I was a little apprehensive at first about joining, cos you know, I'm not your conventional girly girl. But people love me for who I am and my mom gave me her blessing. So its all good.
What will you be singing tonight?
I'll be singing "Nobody" by the Wonder Girls, but I'm gonna do it my own style.
So if you're a singer, why didn't you join Idol last year?
I'm more into the songwriting; songwriting as a career. I don't really wanna be Christina Aguilera or anything. Yea, so Idol's not really my thing.
What do you do in real life?
I'm in Marketing. I work for my uncle's company. Quite different from the whole entertainment/singing thing.
Have you got any other hidden talents?
I think my hidden talent is my songwriting. I like to mix up songs, rearrange songs, make the songs appeal to the masses.
