OMG Contender : Jill Marie Thomas

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.

Catch Jill Marie on tonight's episode of One Moment Of Glory! Tonight, 8pm only on Channel 5. You can also check out Jill's youtube channel here.

If you think you've got killer vocals and an even bigger personality, producers want you! Join the show by emailing omg@mediacorp.com.sg now, and you could be the one walking away with $50,000 cash! And even if you don't - this kind of exposure on national tv is priceless!

  2. Congratulations Jill you've already won! I looked it up it's all true no rumours here. She should win because she's the best in the top 8. They got rid of any real competition early Jon Max Goh, C-Murda, Raz.

    So just wanted to be the 1st to congratulate Jill. Lesbians Rule!

  3. She's not a freaking lesbian >_< where you all getting all these sickening lies from? the internet? you're a fool to believe what the internet says.

    ReplyDelete
  4. @ Anonymous how dare you say being a lesbian is sickening. I didn't read it on the internet. It takes one to know one. It's so obvious in my opinion. Many TV people are lesbian. Ellen is a lesbian and proud. You got a problem with her too? Your discrimination and homophobia is sickening.

    The Singapore gay community supports you Jill. We will vote for you along with Irene another proud Lesbian!
    Sisterhood all the way!

  5. Fine, I'm sorry I said that. But Jill is seriously NOT a lesbian. Get the evidence before you make the statement... -.- And no, I have nothing against lesbians. Don't speculate.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Are you speculating summer?... I mean anonymous? How do you know she's NOT a lesbian? Are you her boyfriend and have seen her naked...oh god the image... I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hello! I'm Macie and I'm 11 years old. My mum said that lesbian is girl love girl, but Jill doesn't have a girlfriend, so how can she be lesbian? Unless you're her girlfriend? maybe she doesn't have a boyfriend cos she hasn't found her man cos she's not ready or something. why don't you go ask her.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hi I'm Jack, I'm 9 years old in two weeks. My Mum said if you can read above you can see she does have a girlfriend. Her name is Rebecca Tan close friend of Irene the Judge. Or maybe she not saying she has girlfriend to pretend she doesn't cheat lah. But how else can you explain her being on the show and not Raz?

    ReplyDelete
  9. cos Jill is better than Raz. Duh.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, and until you get photographic evidence that Jill and Rebecca are together, don't spread the rumors. And don't say that you're not spreading rumors, cos you're just listening to Yolanda, saying that Jill is with Rebecca, with no evidence. You need to learn to have a mind of your own. Anyway, I don't want to continue arguing with you cos you're just some person out to go against people fighting for their rights. I know my means. No point arguing with some person I don't even know exists.....

    ReplyDelete
  11. Jill is not even close to Raz. Oh, and don't believe the TV cos then your just listening to Irene. Photo's are on the way when Jill wins it will all be in the papers. You'll see... But only if she wins, no story if she loses... like she won't win. Of course she will. Better hide Jill and Rebecca. Relationship verses Fame.... hmmm tough one. She wants the fame so bad. She wants the fame so bad. She wants the Fame soooo bad.

  12. People, keep it cool! Let's not badmouth anyone here. Showmanship pls! If the contender has what it got to be rewarded with the $50,000, he or she will deserve it. Let's not discrimminate anyone based on looks, daily life behaviour NOW as we are talking about talent and not selecting a role model, like Ms Singapore Universe or president. No one is perfect anyway. Let's just based on each contender's performance and argue if he or she is good enough to get the $50,000. So far, Jill is stable but will she have more to show? I am also curious. If she is going to sing rock music every week, I will be bored soon as this is her forte, she should sing it well. I am expecting more from her as a performer.

  13. @ Snowie I'm trying to stop it already. apparently SOME people just like causing trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yeah hey hey c'mon people! Totally agree with you snowie. No one's perfect. Being lesbian isn't something wrong. But I honestly don't think Jill is one. Well, not making assumptions, but Jill doesn't really look like the sort that would be in a relationship with anyone.... This is kinda just my opinion. Not taking sides ya. Hmmm, what makes you think she want fame eh? She didn't join Singapore idol. Sigh.... All you people just want to insult and cause trouble... BTW, I think I know who the anonymous defending Jill is. (I'll ask you in school). He/She knows Jill quite well. or should I say very.

  15. @ Rachel: Haha... I think I know who you are too, Rachel :P Silly girl you go and put your real name...

  16. Hey pple, let's switch topic, can? I think Jill is a Gd singer. But shocked by her singing tonight. I watched live at mediacorp. Her throat seemed not in Gd condition. Competition is cruel. It really depends on her votes n luck to move on. So like I said, no need to pinpoint her characteristics. We judge based on their perf. I'm waiting for new elements fr her if she is able to continue.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @ Snowie I was there too! :D were you sitting at the front?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hello! Jill is so awesome right!!!?!?!?!!!!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. If Jil wins, I'm not surprise. She's seem to be everyone favourite. But I'm shock to see the results for the live. Even the judges are shocked too. I saw them discussing in shock when the results shown.. Ha ha, the production team must be cheating on the results. The judges gave Jill such high comment, how can she be bottom few. The production team trying to distract our viewer attention only. So that we would stop thinking jill will win. So cunning ya these production people.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @ Nofair Agreed! but must continue voting ya? :D

  21. Haha, I sit in different postion every week.

  22. If she's gonna sing for national day next year, like what Flying Dutchman (what was he thinking!!??) said, im gonna switch off my tv or radio whenever she sings!! The way she changes the music and tempo of songs, eg. like ''Nobody'', ''Bad Romance'' and the national day's classic songs, are so horrible!! Don't like, or rather, hate her vocal cos I cant hear any of the lyrics due to her frequent and unnecessary weird screams or shouts which is not needed in every songs!! Especailly when she made ''rocker face'', hate it even more. She tried to be a rocker but FAILED MISERABLY!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ anonymous above:

    So sad for you that you feel this way. Too bad for you then!

    Jill was awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @ anonymous

    So what if you don't like her? FD has to hate her too? The whole world has to hate her? What has she ever done to you? Huh? Did she hurt you? If you don't like listening to her so much, no one's forcing you to. So what if you switch off you tv or radio? Does everyone have to know? WOW, IT'S SUCH A BIG THING THAT YOU'RE SWITCHING OFF YOUR TV OR RADIO. THE WHOLE WORLD MUST KNOW. That's her way of singing. Too bad if you don't like it. And if you really want to hear the lyrics SO BADLY, why don't you go search up the lyrics and sing if yourself? That way, you can not only hear you OH-SO-PERFECT, OH-SO-WONDERFUL voice, but you can also have the lyrics running through you head. So what if you hated her rocker face? Why don't you go tell the make up people? It's not like she's the one that did it on herself and 'failed miserably'. You should learn to respect people. You should have been taught that when you were young. If you have something mean to say, tell it to someone who actually listens. You're not perfect. I'm sure people hate you. AND, I'm sure you wouldn't like it if people said these sort of things about you

    Change, before you get into trouble for insulting people;

  25. she's a joke to watch when she's singing... LOL! oh btw, im the same Anonymous above... anyway, she won't lose the competition, no matter how bad or how good she sings, since the judges were on her side...

    ReplyDelete
  26. OOPS!! i mean im NOT!! typo error

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ anonymous

    The judges aren't taking sides.... If not then you'll see one particular person at the bottom every week.... And don't say that she's a joke to watch when she's singing... You don't know if you are too...

  37. @ the anon who said smth about the New Paper pg 20

    you actually believe the New Paper? this proves what a loser you are

    ReplyDelete
  38. haha...and u actually cared so much abt my comment... shows what a SORE loser you are...

    ReplyDelete
  39. sore loser means i'm upset that i lost. in this case, we weren't competing, so i didn't lose, so you can't say sore loser. and haha. you were affected by my post about you, and you turned it around to insult me. LAME. you're so not fit to be a lawyer. you'll probably lose every lawsuit and fail in life.

    ReplyDelete
  40. BTW,
    it's already been proven scandal... -.-

    ReplyDelete
  41. correction!! i didnt turned it around to insult you, im just being straight forward abt it!! besides, if you didn't insult me in the 1st place, i wldn't have insult you at all. oh come on, what does it have to do with you whether i believe what the Newpaper reported anyway? BTW, true that im not a lawyer but my life has been great all along!! =) maybe yours wasn't so gd and boring, so that's why you're here to TRY to prove that all who believe what the Newpaper reported were fools and you're the only smart 1. well, maybe you sld TRY HARDER cos you FAILED miserably.

    Peace

    ReplyDelete
  42. BTW again, I havent lived very long cos i'm only 11. So, you're a bully. what do i need to try harder to do? insult you? thank you very much i'm not that sort of person. I called you a loser cos you were acting like one. no offence. :P BTW, I know who you are cos i know someone you know and that someone's friend (who's in my school) told me. :P

  43. hey guys, no point bickering over OMG. The whole thing is obviously pre-planned, very much like WWF. The aim is to let J-M-T win and then let her sing during the next National Day Parade.
