|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 :)
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.
