JANUARY 15, 2007

HEATHER COX who made the Top 17 on Idol last season joined us... Her manager is in the process of working out a national record deal for her, and she's just set up a Myspace Music page (click here). If you missed it, she said life on Idol was crazy... working on a song for just a few days before you have to perform it in front of millions of people. If she could go back, she probably wouldn't pick Mariah Carey's "Hero" again... But she also says don't believe all you see... Heather said, in her opinion, watching the show back, said only 50% of what you see is accurate! (There was one scene of her rolling her eyes when Becky O'Donohue made it into the Top 24... and that never happened! She wasn't even in the room!). Also, she said it was difficult not getting as much screen time as some of the other auditioners... But she may still keep an eye on the new season starting up tomorrow night!

JASMINE TRIAS who finished third in Season 3 also joined us. She's been really busy... recording a CD, touring, and even starring in a movie! She'll also be performing with the group, Society of Seven, each night from February 15-March 15, 2007 at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. Jasmine said there's nothing she'd change about her Idol experience, and even though she didn't get as much exposure early on as some of the other Idols, she is grateful the show put her on the map. She's kept in touch with a lot of the Idols from her season, and just chatted with Jennifer Hudson about her "Dreamgirls" role the other day. She was also the only Idol we've talked to who said she never voted for herself the entire time she was on American Idol... but she knows her family voted a lot on her behalf. This season, she'll be providing commentary on AI for MTV and you can find her official fansite, by clicking here.

And don't forget, we'll play our interview with Ace Young tomorrow!

We'll see how many of these we get right tomorrow...
