Cook to host Idol watch party for Jasmine Murray

 

Dispatch Staff Report

 

 

She wowed the judges, but will she win the public votes? 

 


Jasmine Murray last week earned one of 13 finalist slots on Fox''s "American Idol," and tonight she''ll perform again in hopes of continuing in competition. 

 


And Cook Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School will open its doors to the community for an "American Idol" watch part in Jasmine''s honor. 

 


While 16-year-old Jasmine didn''t get enough votes to keep her in the running, the judges Thursday brought her back for the wild card edition of the show, where she sang "Reflections" by Christina Aguilera and earned a second chance. 

 


Jasmine attended Columbus High School before her family moved to Starkville. She currently is a student at the state School of the Arts in Brookhaven. 

 


Before getting national attention on Idol, Jasmine sang with the Columbus Girlchoir and -- a pageant veteran -- was named Miss Houston North Central Outstanding Teen 2007. 

 


"American Idol" airs tonight at 7 on Fox, with the elimination show to follow Wednesday.

what I meant--is ---will they be watching the night of the performance and the night of the reveal of the votes---or just the night of the performance? I just thought the date and time is important in an article. thanks for letting me know..
