  • It's Jude's sixteenth birthday, G-Major style. With all of the cameras, music videos, and famous rapper boyfriends.

    This is the most memorable, best episode of Instant Star ever. Every Jommy fan's dream and favorite scene comes from this episode. I feel for Jude when she is heartbroken both times, but I feel for her the most the second time, when Tommy does it. In a way, Shay was never exactly the perfect guy for Jude and in a way it was obvious that he would do something like that to her on his tour, but I never would have guessed it would have been with Eden. The sad thing about this episode is, no matter how much Tommy and Jude loved and cared for each other in this episode, their love was forbidden. My words can't explain how great this episode is, and how no other will ever outdo it.moreless
  • It's Jude's sweet sixteen! It's supposed to be one of the best days of her life, but who can forget Murphy's law?

    This episode is one of my favorites, it's such a good episode! Jude finally has it all figured out, it's her sixteenth birthday and she's going to have a great party, her boyfriend's about to come back from his tour, she's at peace with Tommy, and she has her honest best friends. Jude discovers Shay was cheating on her with the last person she would ever want... Eden. Then Tommy kisses her only to reject her telling her they need to decide that the kiss never happened. Two guys broke her heart on her 16th birthday... poor Jude! Plus her two best friends have been keeping a secret from her... Jamie and Kat are dating!

    This episode is so heart warming, you can't help but feel awful for the poor girl!! It was well written and is one of the best of the whole series!moreless
  • A pivotal moment when Tommy finally reveals how he feels about Jude.

    Jude has been dating Shay which Tommy has never been happy about. Even while seeing Shay, Jude still has feelings for Tommy but she thought it was a hopeless cause and one-sided. Overhearing a conversation between Tommy and Kwest reveals some startling information: Tommy likes her, but there age is the only thing that creats a problem.

    Even though he admitted his feelings aloud nothing drove the point home until Tommy kissed her. It was as if a force compelled him to do it and nothing could have prevented him from doing it. Torture, passion, and regret were plastered on his face showing the emotions that he had kept compressed inside.

    Time to be your 21 is a beautiful song that reflected Jude love for Tommy and her desire to not have that age barrier between them.moreless

  • Jude turns sixteen and nothing could ruin it. She is pleased to learn that Shay coming back from tour and that her and Tommy are actually getting along.

    I absolutely looove this episode because it is indeed exciting. I mean the fact that Jude was having a sweet sixteen until Shay showed up with some news. Turns out he has been cheating on her with her rival, Eden. Then it all starts going downhill from there. After she kisses Tommy and he makes her promise not to bring it up again. Some sweet sixteen. Jude was just getting thrown in this one. She was the target of many emotional distress. I feel for her. I hate that Shay and Tommy broke her heart on her birthday. That was so wrong.moreless
