Aloha [13 Sep 2004|08:19am]

Plans changed! I'm not going to the Phillipines anymore. And I was looking forward to it too. Oh well, what can you do?

In 18 days this will all be over. Just like Amy wrote in her LJ, I started to think about my auditions. I remember I made it through the first 2 rounds like a breeze then it was time to face Simon, Paula, and Randy. Round 3 had to be the most nerve wrecking audition of my life! But I passed, soon after that the Top 32. I was shocked, stunned, surprised, whatever you want to call it. I wasn't sure about "Run To You" because my voice was a little shaky that day. Here comes the top 12. Leah, Matt, Amy, Camile, Jon Peter, Jennifer, John, George, LaToya, Diana, and Fantasia. I knew I was up against a very tough competition. As you all know, Fantasia won. I have no doubt in my mind that America made the wrong choice. She is obviously it.

Camile and I are doing a special after-party in Hawaii. Since it's the last night and it's in our hometown. I think it's a great idea. It's going to be at Rumours Nightclub at the Ala Moana Hotel. Yeee! I'm so excited!

I really don't want to leave everyone, but it's gotta happen sooner or later. I can't imagine living without them though. In the last year, we've become family. But I know we're always going to keep in touch.

Enough of my rambling, I need more sleep. -laughs-

YES ITS TRUE [01 Sep 2004|09:35pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Yes it's True that Camile and I are going to the Philippines. Everyone else couldn't make it or had other plans. We're headed there on October 16 to sing with Piolo Pascual, Erik Santos, and "other Manila-based artists." The concert will be held in Manila of course. I'm really excited because I heard that this concert will be almost twice as big as the on in the U.S. is.

It's amazing what medicine can do for you in such short notice. My voice has improved pretty much 95%. I can't do the really high notes but I'm almost there. Poor Amy got sick though. She couldn't do the "Crazy In Love" so I had to take her solo. It was only for that night though so it's not like I'm a meanie and stole it from her. Just a cover-up. She understood completly though. =)

Today is Camiles birthday!! She's 19! Wooo hoo. We're going to sing happy birthday to her tomorrow during the show. We made her a cake and had some nice dinner. mmmm. I got her a necklace and a matching bracelet. She also got a few more cool things from everyone else. Speaking of birthdays, we have a few more coming up. Leah LaBelles birthday is on the 8th, Matt Rogers is on the 16th, and Jennys is on the 12th. Rubens birthday is also the 12th too. AHhhhh so much to do!

Another true thing. Simon Fuller called me about it and showed me this article in a magazine about me. It was 10:36 AM the other day and I was running late for rehearsals. So I tried to hide from one photographer then somebody said, 'Pinay Idol.' Now that's cool!" Hahaha I didn't think anyone would actually use that. Anyways, I love having all this attention but I get kinda scared sometimes with the cameras following me. I'm only 5'2 and a small girl so I don't know how I could be spotted so easily. -laughs- Am I the only one who gets a little freaked out when photographers find you??

We're in New York right now. It's awesome. I love the weather we're having. The air is perfect and the leaves are just starting to turn colors. It's absolutly gorgeous. Amy's with her boyfriend now and LaToya is on the phone with her husband. Diana is having an interview right now, and Fantasia is making a few lists for Zion. Zion is coming on the tour with us for a week. She's adorable. It's always fun to have babies around. Except after a long night and they cry at 2 a.m. But Zion is 3 so she probably won't cry the whole night. Let's see, ummm Camile is snoring away as usual. Poor girl, everyone knows she snores so loud because of us and Seacrests show. -laughs- And Jenny is attempting to sleep. She just got off the phone. Apparently her grandma isn't doing too well. Poor girl. John is on the other computer chatting with his girlfriend Kelly and they're probably going on and on about how much they miss eachother. *gags* He's also being a little pile right now and throwing little flakes of paper into my hair. JERK!!! Jon Petah is playing his guitar right now. I'm trying to get him to play some John Mayer but he won't because he doesn't love me that much *cries* and last but not least Mr. George would be doing a phone interview now. He has a few more meetings with a record company so we're praying he gets one!! He's the best!

Well I gotta run. Talk to you all later!

Today I went to the vocal doctor. I thought I was just coming down with a sore throat, but no. It was worse...

Turns out I have a small nodule. Which is from abusing my voice. This explains my loss of vocal range. I can't do my soprano notes until I get better. I feel so alto right now. -sigh- My dad talked to Simon Fuller and asked him what to do about it. He said that he wants me to go to voice therapy everyday for the next 2 weeks and see what happens next. The doc told me that it can take up to 5 weeks for it to heal completly. But it could have been worse, if I had a bigger nodule it would have taken 6-12 weeks to heal. I was crying so hard but when I got back to the hotel, everyone got me Hawaiian food. It was so nice. I felt so loved!

I don't have a show today so I'm not allowed to talk and I have to wear my scarf 24/7. We're on our way to Worcester, MA for tomorrow. I want to get some lobster to eat up there. Yummm.

I need some calls to cheer me up. You know the digits.

[ mood | anxious ]

Last night we were in Salem, NC. Today we are in Washington, DC. How exciting. Okay, being the unsupportive/busy/bad idol that I am I finally went out and bought Simons book yesterday. "I don't mean to be rude but..." is excellent. I love it and it's addicting. I actually finished a few minutes ago. I definatly recommend reading it. I found out some naughty things about Trenyce, Kimberley Caldwell, and Corey Clark. -shakes head and giggles-

Anywho, I'm worried about my voice. I'm starting to get a cough and my voice is starting to get a little weak. I hope that whatever I have isn't going to be serious. I'm going to the Vocal Doctor tomorrow to see what I can do about it and if I can prevent anything. Wish me luck.

Hey ya'll.

I'm in New Orleans, LA for the day. It's George's hometown and last night it was basically his show. He had more signs than anyone obviously. I love the south. It's so beautiful and everyone's so nice and relaxed. The feeling reminds me of back home in Hawaii. Tomorrow we'll be in North Little Rock, AR. It will be our 18th show, so I guess that make us legal in the world of touring. WOW. I'm a nerd. -laughs-

Oh, I was just informed on some really cool news. I'm in this months BOP magazine! I'm also in this months Philippines Cosmopolitan Magazine. I have a full page on about representing Hawaii. Also in YES! Magazine. I can't believe this. THIS IS NUTS!!! :-D My mom went in got them for me because I was too embaressed to get it myself.  I didn't want to seem immodest or anything. EEEEKS! I'm so excited! -big smile!-

I think I'm going to go golfing today. George wants to show everyone around New Orleans tonight so that's going to be fun. We're going to see where he worked and hangs out. In fact, I'm kinda scared to see where all his crazy ideas came from. But I just really need to be outside. I can't be stuck in this bus for another day. MUST DO SOMETHING ACTIVE OUTSIDE!!!

Speaking of doing something active, I think I'm going to go walking. I need some time to myself. Don't get me wrong, I love everyone like no other, but I just need to be by myself for a while. Sharing your personal space with 9 other people gets kinda icky.  Talk to everyone later!

until then, I'm just your sweet smiling girl,

Bits and Pieces. [11 Aug 2004|12:00am]
[ mood | awake ]

I've lost track of time because of all the different time zones. Got done doing the good ol' Texas show. Now it's time for me to update.

I really need a new layout. I have pictures and everything. I really love Kim Caldwell and Amy Adams layout. If you can do that. It'd be greatly appreciated.

Last but not least. I'm in love with Kim Lockes song "Without You." Clay Aiken is featured in it. They did a really good job. Two Thumbs up. Not to sound like an American Idol fruitloop, but I'm also in love with "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson. Avril, you did a good job co writing it.

Gosh, I'm such a nerd.

I'm going to start off with how the tour is going. It's going great still. Our last show was in Omaha, NE. That's such a cool place. I loved it. Diana's doing better, she's taking one show at a time. She's mostly off her crutches now. Tomorrow we're going to be in Grand Prairie, Texas. Camile and I are especially excited because we're the only ones who have never been in Texas. YAY!

Okay, I want your opinion, how would you describe me, Jasmine Soriano Trias?

[ mood | thankful ]

Okay, so today we had the day off. I went shopping with my dad, Camile's mom, Diana, and her mom. It was really fun. Camile didn't go cause she wanted to sleep the whole day and la toya wanted to go to some show so they went together. I also called, e-mailed, and IMed my mom and brother. I talked to Neolani for about a half an hour. She's so sweet. I miss her soo much. She's like "Jassy I miss you, when are you coming home?" How can you not melt to an adorable 6 year old? Ronel's fine, he likes not having to share the car. -laughs- He loves me so much, really. Anyways, back to the shopping thing. Diana and I were looking at some really cute skirts at the Tommy store and then Kelly Clarkson comes on the radio and we're all dancing. So much fun! Diana had to be careful though cause he ankle is still in bad condition. Poor girl. She's doing most of the songs now. You should see all the flowers/gifts/signs for this girl. The fans are so sweet and very generous. I got a Hawaiian teddy bear from this one guy, I couldn't believe it. It was just so thoughtful.

Amy and Chris are so adorable. But they probably don't realize they have just as much privacy as a goldfish does. -laughs- but then again, did they think they were really going to get privacy when 9 other people are always around her? Nope. I didn't think so. So they go off on their own little way. -sigh- Boyfriends are soo cute.

Anyways, Sasha's coming to our Chicago show tomorrow night. I'm so excited! Right now, I'm about to go have dinner with just my dad. He's so supportive, gosh, I much be the luckiest girl in the world. Honestly.

much <3

Dear Mr. Justin Timberlake, [01 Aug 2004|11:27am]
[ mood | irritated ]

First off, I would like to say something about American Idol. I can understand why some artists think it's the easy way into getting fame, but it's not like we're untalented and just got a contract. (Please exclude Sir William Hung) No. We worked our asses off 7 days a week. 7 days a week for at least 4 months straight. It's not like we all sat around eating patato chips and played video games. You had to put your all into it or else you're out.

Second, American Idol is a VOCAL CONTEST. Talent search, or call it whatever you want. But take JoJo for example. The new 13 year old girl just won a child talent contest and got her contract and became number #1 on TRL. Star Search is basically the same thing. If you're good, than you win and you're on your way to fame if you have what it takes. Brittney, Christina, and Destiny's Child, were on it and they're doing well for themselves. But of course, they got the easy way into fame too, right? NO! And the Mickey Mouse Club, you had to audition to be on it too. And you had to have talent. That was a TV show that helped promote the artists career. So I'm saying that, American Idol is just like those shows.

And last, we've been judged enough through out the competition, thanks to the judges. I really would appreciate it if you didn't judge us before you know what we're about. Especially since you're the inspiration to all of this. In case you didn't know, my first CD I bought myself was a NSYNC CD, and my first concert was to see you. Oh and guess who my favorite male pop artist is?

So Thank you and good day.

[ mood | birthday - licious ]

Today, the famous John Stevens birthday! Woo. Well we're in Detroit, Michigan tonight and it's not as ghetto as I thought it'd be. We went to Canada to get something to eat and go to this really cool archade for Johns birthday. His dad and girlfriend Kelly flew in this morning to spend the day with him.

Camile has been getting on everyones nerves. I don't know why though. She just starts arguements with everyone. I mean, I love her and all but she's just constantly looking for trouble. I think she might just be homesick or something, but it's really getting hard to put up with her, especially since we're all getting along and there isn't much space to get away. Anyways, this is a really small entry, hope you all can forgive me. -laughs-

OKAY x 3 million [23 Jul 2004|10:22pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

First off, tomorrow we'll be in Chicago promoting the tour, signing autographs, taking pictures, and what not. I love promoting, really I do. I like meeting my fans because it gives me a boost like nothing. I feel famous when I met people who tell me they love me and voted for me a million times. That feeling is right up there when you walk off stage having a great performance and the crowd gives you the best applause. I feel so touched! -blushes-

Next, I know it's 2 days early but still. Me and the girls picked up something special for Amy. 

 Happy Birthday AmyCollapse )

 and Johnny, I didn't forget about you sweetie! I love you so much!Collapse )


hope you enjoy!        TRIAS...OUT!

Please remember, I am no ordinary teenager. [22 Jul 2004|12:32am]
[ mood | excited ]

Tour is absolutly fabulous! Luckly, everyone's voice is still cooperating (knock on wood) and everyone is getting along. (knock on wood again!) So the Idol update, -laughs- I feel so weird saying I'm an idol finalist because it's so hard to believe that I've made it so far. Amy has a birthday coming up in just 3 days! So that means, go give her a hug and tell her how much you adore her, because she loves it when you worship her. -laughs- I can't wait though! I'm so excited to be with her and everyone else because it seems like we're all family. I know I see everyone every single day, but this day and John Stevens birthday (July 28th) are going to be a blast. I'm really surprised Amy hasn't lost her voice yet. She talks on the phone whenever she can to Chris. Chris seems like a really nice guy. Now I know they say nothing is going on with eachother, and blah blah blah, but it's obvious that they care about eachother more than friends. They both won't admit it. Amy blushes whenever she mentions him and from the very few times I talked to Chris he just can't take his eyes off of her. In a good way, that is. He obviously thinks she's something special. I know I'm only 17, but I can tell when romance is in the air. After all I'm not an ordinary 17 year old. Also, I'm not the only one who notices these things. I over heard Jenn talking to Fantasia and she asked if something was up. (By the way, the buses are hard to block out sounds so I couldn't help it if my little ears were open. hehe)

Anyways, it's wayyyy past my bedtime. I'm really lacking sleep. -laughs-
Have a nice night,
<3 Jassy

Surprise Surprise Surprise!!! [14 Jul 2004|04:28pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

So I get a call around 3ish on Monday. It was Simon Fuller, and I thought he might just be calling to say hello but no. Simple calls from American Idol is never the case. It turns out we had to leave earlier than expected, which they knew all along but wanted to surprise us.  We were going on vacation to this resort called "Casablanca Resort." Which is in Mesquite, Nevada. (yes I thought it was Mosquito, Nevada too, so don't feel bad.) I got to the studio around 3 P.M. yesterday only to get a wonderful greeting from Diana, who I swear to God was going to jump on my dads car. -laughs- I got out and of course my wonderful friends all helped me get all [EIGHT] suitcases out. Which was so sweet because my dad was so happy he didn't have to unload them all again.

On the way to the hotel I mostly watched movies. I watched my absolute favorite movie of all times, "The Butterfly Effect." John bought it for me, I thought that was so sweet of him. -gives him a kissy face!!- love ya John! It's so good that he, Diana, Camile, and I are such good friends and are the same age. But after the butterfly effect, Amy and I snacked on Teddy Grahms watching her favorite movie You've Got Mail. But even though it was her favorite movie she didn't really pay attention to it. She just read some book of hers. -laughs- Ohhh well.  So we get to the hotel 5 hours later and check in. After getting our rooms, Diana and I went downstairs to beat JPL and John at some DDR. Because Diana is the Goddess of that game. Turns out we  won! IN YOUR FACE STEVENS AND LEWIS!! We all have dinner and then us "minors" (as miss Adams calls us) send our parentals away to leave us alone. Well we were told to finish at least one of our essays by tonight, but being in the Vegas area we couldn't help but want fun. So I hear John knock on mine and Camiles room with Diana and then we go out and waste more time on video games. What a great night.

Anyways, there are 2 busses for us. I'm with the lovely Amy Adams, the fabulous La Toya London, Diva Diana, and the Queen Fantasia! We are very crazy girls. Not to mention Fantasia's a little cranky. But I guess I would to if my 2 year old daughter was up all night and then you had to leave her the next day. Amy and I were a little rebelious today. We were bored so Amy took a pillow and put it on Fantasia who thought she'd be out of everyones way if she slept on the top bunk. She thought wrong. So she jumps up and jumped on us. Dang that girl has a good punch -laughs and winks- Sorry Tasia. You're just so fun to get!!!!

I was a good pal today. I gave George Huff my favorite cherry fruit snacks because I love him so much and he craved them. I didn't have time to open the box and give him 2 things so I just handed him the box and figured 5 hours later I'll take them back. NOPE. George and Camile ate them all. -frowns- But at least George said he'd go get me some tonight after the show. I'm going with him because it's soo much fun to go grocery shopping with him. It's amazing how he's been on his own for 4 years now. He is a bad shopper.

So now I'm here, in Salt Lake City, UT. We just got here about an hour or 2 ago. The Delta Center is sooo cool. There are soo many doors backstage it's hard to know where you're going. I have my hair & make up done, but I'm sure it will be fixed 300 more times before we go on stage. La Toya just got done with her sound check and Amy and I are updating our LJ because we are big dorks! -winks- Well it's almost showtime and we have to reherse a few medleys on this stage! I can see outside this window and fans are already lined up! Oh God this is the best feeling in the world -BIG SMILE-


take care,
LOVE jasmine

3 MORE DAYS!! [11 Jul 2004|04:00pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Aloha cuz,

Okay Jas, keep your cool for 3 more days! -big smile- Amy  and I have strict orders to be taking pictures of all the good stuff that's happening for Simon. I think he just wants to get us back for having to listen to all our bad performances. -laughs- Speaking of the "old chap," I talked to him today. He seems to be doing fine which all the other idols were glad to hear. It's very different to be on stage and not seeing him, Paula, or Randy there. Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a problem with that. -winks-

Yes so the rumors are true. I was offered a recording deal by a small recording company. I can't say I gave an answer yet, because I'm still looking into my other options. Gotta keep every door open, ya know.  

Anywho, I talked to Pierre, also known as the "idiot." -winks- He's such a funny guy, very nice too. I gave him an idea to ask William Hung to do a duet with him, but he said that'd be selfish of him because he'd be holding Will back because he has a solo career. How thoughtful. -laughs-

Amy Adams! I've been trying to catch you down all day today during rehersals. But you seem to just disappear after we're done. I hope everything is going okay, and is getting better. We're all really worried about you deary.

and Oh get this! I talked to my good old buddy Clay Aiken. So since he's having a "Not A Tour but we all know it really is" this summer too. Looks like we have competition guys!! Psh, as I told Aiken....

he's going down dawg!! but then again, he has scary Claymates....-shivers-

as the most popular saying is these days.....

Oh P.S. speaking of Ryan Seacrest, he finally joined AC so be nice and make him feel welcomed!

Alright, I PROMISE I will never be so bad at updating again!!!


So I found out the real tour dates, because the lovely Amy Adams told me that the tour dates (see entry before) were the second seasons. I am such a dork!!!   AI3 TOUR!!! (with lots of pop tarts)

We're starting out in Salt Lake City, UT. Which is cool because I went there once on vacation and loved it. They have realllly yummy food there. Then we end in Honolulu in September. I can't believe we leave in only 4 days. I'm so pumped for this and I will definatly keep you updated during the tour.

I kinda feel bad about leaving my family though. Ronel and Neolani are kinda sad that I'm leaving them again. They're really happy for me that I'm following my dream but they wish I was going to be home for the summer to play and tease them. -sigh-

anyways, if anyone is attending any of the concerts, LET US KNOW!!! because we will say a special hello and I insist on having dinner with us. We love company.

Well Mr. Banana (also known as JPL) needs the internet connection thingy. So I'm going to be a good little sister he never had and let him on.  ta ta!


with love and happiness,
jasmine and jon -kissy face-

anywho, see tour dates




anyways, since I haven't hung out with anyone lately...someone should leave a message saying they'd like to hang out. Because I would!! -smiles-



ahh, i'm gonna run to the store to get some Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. That stuff is seriously addicting.
