Of the three judges only Simon Cowell predicted both of last night's viewers' choices, however, judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul also predicted that Jasmine would make the cut. The often acerbic Cowell was refreshingly kind by commenting, "You're going to get a lot of votes, because you're 17, you've got a nice smile and you've got a flower in your hair. You are potentially a very good singer, no question or doubt. Good enough for me."
Jasimine plays piano, the ukulele and the guitar. She also dances hip-hop and hula. She enjoys all kinds of music including Hawaiian music, R&B, hip-hop, alternative and contemporary. While Jasmine is hoping for a singing career, she does have alternative plans should that not come to fruition. She will continue her education and hopefully go to nursing school.
Jasimine joins 18-year-old Camile Velasco of Maui who was a viewer's choice two week's ago to join the final twelve. Next week twelve "wild card" contestants will compete for the four remaining spots in the finals.
