Quickie Post : 3 More OMG BTS Vids

Quickie Post : Last 3 Vids
I've got three more behind-the-scenes videos to share with you guys - OMG its almost 6am!
Anyway, here you go ...

This first vid is of Luminiq Crew rehearsing their second item. Notice that the starting pose of the second item, is the same as the end pose of the first item they did? I likey. This was recorded at Tuesday night's full dress rehearsal.

This is a vid of Jill-Marie singing True Colours for Desert Roses Jessy and Sophia and their friend Lily. They requested she sing it for them and I happened to be there to record too :) 

This last vid is of the night's guest performer Quick Quick Danger during the full dress rehearsals, also on Tuesday night.

OMG Grand Finals : News Break Entertainment

Quickie Post : Vids from News Break
While viewers at home had to contend with watching the News for half hour before the Results Show began, producers lined up a fair bit of entertainment in studio for the audience. They invited some our favourite ex Contenders back on stage to keep us entertained. Check out the vids below...

This is a vid of our favourite bartender boys Shah Dillon and Kenny Hong who are Bottle Flipz, from OMG's Episode 1.

This is Charles or C-Murda from OMG's Episode 2.

This is Desert Roses. First is a routine featuring Jessy and Sophia, Susan is in Egypt and could not be here. After which Sophia does a very captivating solo routine....

Last but not least, its our favourite shiny, happy people - the Singapore Char Siew Baos! Give it up for Jason, Jacob, Ruby and Dom :)

Plus one bonus vid here of Sean Harrison rehearsing backstage before the show - this is in the cramped confines of the B3 lift lobby, while Viki and Spyro were asleep literally 3 feet away from where I was standing. I love the way Sean sings this song, it felt like he was singing it to me.....this is probably what he does to make girls swoon right Sean? Just kidding - hope you got to Tekong in time dude! (Sean had to rush off the minute the show ended to make it to the last ferry to Tekong at 11pm.)

Hope you enjoyed the vids, workin' on the review, which may take a while...too many pics to choose from!

OMG Winner : Jill-Marie Thomas

Congratulations Jill!
Jill gets a boost from the IFLY boys!

After 14 weeks of competition, the winner of Channel 5's One Moment of Glory is Jill-Marie Thomas!

Tonight during the Grand Finals, Jill-Marie performed two songs, an Alanis Morisette mash-up of "You Live" and "You Oughta Know" and Cyndi Lauper's "True Colours". She performed both songs with ease and sincerity and came out tops on the Judges' ranking tonight.

Apparently, Jill-Marie beat out Luminiq Crew by just a hare's breath to clinch the $50,000. Both Finalists did awesome. Imo, Luminiq's second routine totally blew everyone out of the water. It was tight, it was sharp and it was powerful. More on everyone's performances in the review later.

In the meantime, check out these pics. The minute the announcement was made, the Luminiq boys ran over to hug their 'kakak'. To me this picture says it all about the bond they have formed during the show. Its so touching to see how supportive they are of each other, and despite missing out on the prize money, are able to be genuinely happy for Jill.

For now, here's a quick word from Jill-Marie, I managed to catch her before she got whisked away by the media for interviews....

Congratulations one more time Jill, you've made the OMG family real proud! And to the Luminiq boys, I just want to say you guys were just awesome tonight, don't believe for a second that you 'lost' anything. Keep believing in yourself and you'll have that one moment of glory soon enough :)

xoxo, s.

ps. Let us know what you've done with the prize money ok? Jill's mum is over the moon, she just won $25,000 :) (and of course she must be uber proud of her lil girl!)

pps. A little birdie told me that The New Paper has dug up 'another scandal'. Apparently someone's now called in to say that Jill-Marie is related to Judge Swoon a.k.a. Tay Ping Hui.Geez when will this sour grapes thing stop right? The girl won the show fair and square, leave her alone. I don't think anyone cares if Jill is related to Ping Hui - show's over, so deal.

Grand Finals Sneak Peeks

OMG Grand Finals Semi-spoilers...
*not really that spoiler laaa*
But if you reaaaally prefer to not be kaypoh and be totally surprised by tonight's performances, you can stop reading now :) This post has behind-the-scenes vids of Sunday's rehearsals and pictures from last night's full dress. There's still plenty more to see on the show, this just gives you an idea of what to expect and ...hopefully...whet your appetitie for tonight's show!

Let's start with Sunday rehearsals. Check out this vid of CJ Crew's first rehearsal for Zaki's assistant Pam. Zaki wasn't in town on Sunday, so Pam sat in for him.

Next up, here's a vid of IFLY mucking about before rehearsals. They're pretending to be Luminiq. The moves they're doing is a segment of Luminiq's choreo from the opening sequence. Not bad right?

Last but not least, here's a sneak of a segment of one of Luminiq's items for the night. I love it. Spyro plays Luminiq drums.

After rehearsals on Sunday, IFLY headed to wardrobe for their imaging session and it took quite a while to get eleven people kitted out for two items plus group items.
Check out what IFLY boys are wearing...tiger prints, very jungle er chic...
Vincent Yeo looking like he's just stepped out of Lion King.
We have quite a few Georges of the Jungle :) 
Girls being girls, are left to sort out what belongs to who for the boys...

There, everything nicely folded and labeled after the girls are done!
IFLY boys trying on their second outfit, a bit 'shy' about something poking through their shirts! LOL!

Vincent Yeo chillaxing across the corridor....imaging for 11 takes forever!
Here are pics from last night's full dress rehearsals at the theatre. Before we started the full run through for the night, we celebrated a few OMG birthdays ;) Today's birthdays are Azmi from Luminiq Crew, Jessy from Desert Roses and Vincent Fok from IFLY. Sophia's birthday is next week so she joined in too to cut the cake.
Chillaxing while waiting for the birthday people to arrive...



Sean raced over for rehearsals the minute he was released from camp!

Ok, that wraps up the Performance show rehearsals, time to rehearse the Results Show stuff, here are the pics ....
Check out these two OMG monkeys :)
Well, the show's not really over, there's still a long debrief, as usual, after the full dress rehearsals, and everyone's slumped over...

Overall, the show's lookin' good, everyone looked real spiffy in their hair/makeup/wardrobe. Hope the pics got you guys excited about tonight's show. I'm even more excited now after posting them haha. 

Of course, here's what I'm actually looking forward to in tonight's show ...apart from the results I mean ....
Judge Swoon will be guesting on tonight's finale yay!
Am sure you guys are just as excited as I am about Tay Ping Hui coming back to the show :) Apart from the swoon factor, I seriously think he was the best guest judge on the show - constantly giving detailed and constructive and honest criticism. So it only makes sense that he would be invited to rejoin the show at the Grand Finals.

Okay guys, am off to pack my cameraS and bag for the show. If you see me, stay clear, cos I have a bad runny nose and a cough - I'm sicky :*( - BUUUUT....please feel free to follow my tweets and twitpics as I update you on what's happening in real time backstage and on the show!
