***Miranda's P.O.V.***

I was currently with Jai in his dressing room helping him get ready for his performance tonight. We are in week 9 with the Top 4 Semi finals. I'm so proud that Jai came this far. Top 3 finalist are coming up soon... I still haven't told Jai what Dannii told me... I decided to take the offer... At first I wasn't cause I thought I wasn't ready for fame and all the haters, but my dad taught me into it.. I really can't believe that I'm taking the offer. Dannii knows that I am.. I just asked her to please not tell Jai. "Babe, you okay?" Jai asked breaking my thought. "What? I mean.. yeah. I just remembered what Dannii told me the first time that she met me when she dragged me away from you." Just tell him. "Oh, well what did she say?" Tell him.. Just tell him. "She wants to umm... sign me." I said. Jai got excited. "Really?! Miranda that's amazing!!! I'm so happy for you baby!" He then picked me up and spinned me around and kissed me. I just giggled. I still haven't told him the rest of the signing deal... If I take the offer, which I did.. I have to move to L.A. Maybe I'll wait on that part. "Jai! You're on in 5!" said one of the backstage people. "Well wish me luck babe." He kissed me cheek and ran off. I went to go take my seat in the stands waiting for the show to start. "So did you tell him?" Jessica asked. I nodded. "Even about the L.A. part?" she asked. I looked down and shook my head no. She sighed at me. "Miranda.. you have to tell him." "I know.." I mumbled.

***Jai's P.O.V.***

I was thinking about how Miranda and I would be famous together! We could be like.. The 'It' couple!! I was so excited for her. "Jai Waetford!" I heard me name, which meant it was time to go to my spot. They played my video intro.. as always, and then it was my time to sing. I made my way on stage.... with my guitar in my hand.

When I look into your eyes... it's like watching the night sky.

Or a beautiful sunrise.

There's so much they hold.

Cause I won't give up on us.

Even if the skies get rough.

Cause I'm giving you all my love.

I'm still lookin' up.

Cause even the stars, they burn.

Some even fall to the Earth.

But we've got a lot to learn.

God knows we're worth it.

Oh no I won't give up.

Cause in the end you're still my friend.

Cause.. Cause I won't give up on us.

Even if the skies get rough.

Cause I'm giving you all my love.

I'm still lookin' up.

No I won't give up.

They crowd cheered. I messed up.... I FUCKING MESSED UP!!! Now I'll never be in the top 3... "Jai.... You must be disappointed." Nat said giving me a sympathetic look. "Yep." I said. I was more that disappointed. I was pissed off at myself. "You know when you first started, I was thinking 'Well you just found yourself a place in the Grand Final.' I was seriously like 'Wow, done, dusted.' Now I'm scared. What happened mate?" Nat asked. "I think I got too lost... in the song. I mean, sometimes you can do that and that's what happened. I just wasn't concentrating." I said with disappointment in my voice. "Did you go into a different song?" Nat asked. "No, that was the same song." I was just shaking my head looking down. "Good for you picking it back up and keepin' on going. Cause that's really hard to do." Nat said. That made me feel a little better about my performance. "Firstly, I know that there is nobody tougher on you than you." Dannii began. "And were all scared for you that that had happened. You were singing beautiful, I watched the dress run today and you didn't do that, it is just nerves. It goes to show how tough this is. This shows every week. People don't know what it's like to be in your shoes on that stage doing this live. All credit to you. As Ronan said to you at 14 years old..." she looked where I was stepping. "Please do not set yourself on fire now, do not stand back on those candles!" She said laughing. I guess she was just trying to make me smile since I was disappointed at the moment. "Up to that point, you were singing beautiful. It is what it is Jai, don't beat yourself up. Okay?" Dannii said. I nodded. Redfoo started to speak. "When you're up on stage, and you're giving it a 100%, and you get lost in the emotion, and you get so deep into it, that sometimes the words don;t even matter, and it's all about the emotion, and I don't even understand what happened if you messed up if you didn't, but I was right with ya the whole way with the emotion. You kept going.... and that's what a true artiest is. It's all about expression that emotion, and your still in the emotion right now because you're upset when you were singing the song, you're upset now, and that's what I like to see. You are a real artiest." He was right. I'm upset that I messed up in the song. I mean.. who wouldn't be?! I glanced over at Ronan... it looks like he doesn't know what to say. "Hey buddy, I know you got it. I know how hard you worked this week. You didn't do that during rehearsals, not even once. You're so much better than this. You have another song tonight. And please god Australia will vote for you and believe in you so you can be here next week." I nodded. Commercial came so I went back to my dressing room and just sat there. There's no way that I was going to make it into next week.. not after what has happened tonight. "Hey." Miranda said as she rushed into my dressing room giving me a hug. "I won;t be in the Top 3.." I said looking down. "Babe, you have another song. You have a lot of fans out there that believe in you." I just kept staring at the floor. If you're confused, Miranda and I are back together. We have been together for a couple of weeks now. "I need to get ready for my second song." I said as I walked to the wardrobe. "What song are you doing?" Miranda asked. "'Dynamite' by Taio Cruz." She just nodded. "Well, I'm gonna go wait for the show to start. Have a good show babe. I love you." She then kissed me on the cheek and walked out. I sighed. I was just so angry and upset about my first song. "Jai. It's almost time for your next song." said one of the backstage people. I got dressed and got into my position. They did another video intro about me and this next song. As the vidoe was playing, I got into my position on stage.

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes.

Saying ayye.

Gotta let get go.

I wanna celebrate and live my life.

Saying ayye.

Baby lets go.

I came to dance, dance, dance, dance.

I hit the floor cause that's my plans, plans, plans, plans.

I'm wearing all my favorite brands, brands, brands, brands.

Give me some space for both my hands, hands, hands, hands.

Yeah, yeah.

Cause it goes on and on and on.

Yeah it goes on and on and on yeah.

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes.

Saying ayye ooh.

The crowd was cheering. I feel like I did much better on this song than my first song. All of the judges were standing up... applauding me. "Jai." began Nat. "The amount of love, and support that you have here from all of us judges and thew crew and everyone backstage is at standing. And I bet that means a lot in this industry, you know? You need to be a great singer and performer, but you also need to be a great guy and you're a great guy as well." They crowd cheered again. "Thank you." I said. All of the judges said that they basically loved my performance. I felt more confident about the votes tonight. I was in my dressing room just.. resting I guess, when Miranda came through the door. "Jai! That was amazing!" She said running to me and hugging me. "Thanks babe." I said giving her a forehead kiss. "Do you feel better about the votes tonight?" I smiled and nodded. We just on the mini couch and just talked. I just kept thinking about how it's gonna be soon. Miranda and I will be famous together. We can do songs together on each others albums and everything! I was so excited for the both of us. "Jai, what are you thinking about?" Miranda said interrupting my thought. "Just thinking about how we'll be the 'It' couple soon." I said grabbing her hand and kissing it. She just looked away. "What's wrong?" I asked. "Nothing. Jai... I.. I just don't know if I'm ready for fame yet." I gave her a sorrow look. "Babe, you can handle it. You're one of the strongest girls I know." I gave her another kiss on her forehead. The eliminations were about to start. Miranda went back to her seat, and I went to my position with Ronan and Taylor.

A/N: Will Miranda tell Jai any time soon? I guess you'll find out soon!! Thank you all for reading!!! xxxx
