The boy-next-door is now the one who rules the 3rd generation of a very prominent showbiz clan. The sweet voice is the musical princess who pushed her way into show business with her musical prowess.

Both young and vibrant GMA 7 talents are now dubbed as “JULIELMO”, the hot and fresh love tandem of this generation that causes stampede when they enter the scene.
Elmo Moses Arroyo Magalona and Julie Ann San Jose are definitely the love team that promises to beat all the other love teams these days. Both with serious passion with music and acting not to mention their intense chemistry noticeably exuding even behind the camera; whether they are together as a love team or as stand alone artists; these two young faces promises lasting stardom. Their appeal and artistic talents sets new standards to be measured up to by their contemporaries and maybe even for future generations of love teams to come.

They appear to weather all the controversies and usual predicaments of young artists facing the public on a daily basis with so much ease and comfort; like they are born to do it all their lives. You will never see them exhausted and impatient on the raging fans that follow them anywhere they go. They really seem to enjoy what they are doing at the moment and have always been vocal of looking forward to what’s up and ahead of them.

Although for quite sometime both were subtly shining under the shadows of other people: Julie Ann from her previous teen group, Sugarpop and Elmo from the dad’s undying music legacy; both are now on their A Game, making it to the top. Both determined to exceed the public’s expectations.
Since they were launched in Party Pilipinas as musical love teams rocking their fans with their hard to miss production numbers, the buzz to pair them together on screen for more shows and possibly a movie or an album has been going around their home network; this has been making their fans more eager to stick to their tandem more than ever. And even though there are rumors of keeping this love team apart by pairing them with other stars, the Julielmo fans are still hooked on their onscreen and off screen romance, praying so hard that it will last longer and that the network will reconsider.

The love tandem is still young, but with the mounting number of fans keeping an eye on their shows, the network will surely have more challenging roles and projects for them in the future. In the meantime, these young stars are enjoying their fair share of fame and fortune with their regular gigs and TV shows. Week after week you will notice some undeniable improvements on working towards flawless acting and singing. There are surely more to come and more to expect when they are both enjoying the careers they choose for themselves; and all of these for the delight of those who relentlessly supports them on all their ventures.


From: Pilipino Star Ngayon by Nitz Miralles ( March 29, 2011)

Napa-“aww” ang press sa narinig na sinabi ni Ogie Alcasid na mamamatay siya ’pag hiniwalayan siya ng asawang si Regine Velasquez. Pati si Songbird nagulat sa narinig at tumingin sa asawa.

Nagulat kasi ang dalawa sa balitang break na sina Dennis Trillo at Jennylyn Mercado at nanghihinayang sa relasyon ng dalawa na bagay pa naman.

Samantala, gusto pa ring ituloy ni Regine ang pagpoprodyus ng musical na Wazak na pinagbidahan nina Julie Ann San Jose at Elmo Magalona sa Party Pilipinas at dinirek ni Rico Gutierrez. Sa June ang gusto ni Regine, kaso sa June na rin matutuloy ang honeymoon nila ni Ogie sa Rome at Positano sa Italy. Two weeks sila sa Italy, kaya baka pagbalik na lang nila itutuloy ang project.

Narinig naming nag-usap sina Regine at Ogie na dapat may recording na sina Elmo at Julie Ann at suhestiyon ng press, bigyan na rin sila ng ibang show ng GMA 7 at sabayan na rin ng pelikula para mas sumikat pa ang love team ng mga bagets.

Sa tanong kung ano ang mai-expect ng mga viewers sa Party Pilipinas after one year, sagot ni Ogie, “Feeling ko we have to keep growing. Dream kong mabura lahat ng mga foreign songs sa show at puro OPM na lang. May ginagawa kami, abangan n’yo.”

IF HE had his way, Elmo Magalona wants to record the unreleased songs of his dad, the late Pinoy rap icon FrancisM, with the tunes he himself wrote, for his debut CD.

“Pop still has a number of tunes at home,” Elmo, 16, tells Inquirer Entertainment. “Some are just lyrics, with no melody yet. I plan to eventually work on them, but my focus right now is to add more songs to those I’ve already made.”

He says he plans to release the album this year but has not decided which label to work with: “I’m really preparing for it. I don’t want to record an album just for the sake of having one. It has to be something special, something that Pop, if he could hear it, would be proud of. It will also be a tribute to my family, my best and worst critic in everything.”

To mark his dad’s second death anniversary, the entire Magalona family spent the day at Francis’ grave at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City. “All of my parents’ relatives were there,” recalls Elmo.

It has been almost a year since Elmo decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and join show biz. Among the shows he is on, Elmo says it’s on the Sunday noontime variety program “Party Pilipinas” that he gets to really express himself. He is paired with the equally talented Julie Anne San Jose.

Their onscreen partnership, dubbed “Julielmo,” has a considerably large following. This prompted the show’s production team to create a musical segment called “Wazak: A Love Story.”

“I feel flattered that people like our love team,” says 16-year-old Julie Ann. “We just hope it lasts for a long while.”

Elmo adds: “This tandem has yet to reach its full potential. I hope to make more projects with her.”

What have you learned from each other in the months you’ve worked together?

JULIE ANN: I learned the importance of pakikisama. I’ve realized that we are a team, we need to work as one unit.

ELMO: I got to know Julie Anne a lot. I learned that she’s a very disciplined singer. She takes care of herself well. She’s very dedicated to her work.

Do you have disagreements, too, especially with the kind of songs you sing?

J: Elmo is into rap music. I sing songs of any genre-ballad, rap, or R&B. I can adjust to his preference.

E: We like almost the same kind of music. If ever that happens, we will just try to adjust. Usually, we are given a particular song and we work on it together.

What can viewers expect from you this year?

J: I want to try acting. My handlers are negotiating for me to join a coming sitcom. I also want to be in a drama series again. The last I did was “Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan.” I did an episode for “Maynila” with Elmo. We really enjoyed making it.

How true is the rumor that Elmo is already your boyfriend?

J: This may sound showbiz-y, but we’re really just friends. I’m not yet open to having an intimate relationship with anyone. I don’t think I’m mature enough to handle a heartbreak just yet. I just want to focus on my studies and career.

Are both of you in school?

E: I finished high school last year at the Montessori Integrated School in Antipolo, Rizal. I’ve had a year of rest. I’m not totally decided yet on what to take up in college-either Film at La Salle or Computer Science at Ateneo.

J: I’m taking up Communication Arts at the Angelicum College in Quezon City. This school year, I only took up 15 units so there won’t be conflict with my TV work schedule.

Your parents don’t mind this?

J: They don’t. I managed to successfully juggle school and show biz when I was in high school so they’re not worried anymore. In the beginning, my dad wanted me to quit singing. He changed his mind when he saw that I passed all my subjects. I even graduated with honors.

“Party Pilipinas” celebrates its first anniversary today with simultaneous performances nationwide.

Sa mga fans ng Julielmo. Ayaw ni Pia Magalona na mainvolve ang anak niya kay Julie Anne. Ganon talaga. But I promise to support Julie Anne 100%. God bless.

Maxene, kinikilig kina Elmo at Julieanne

BOTO si Maxene Maga*lona na itinatambal ng Party Pilipinas ang kapa*tid niyang si Elmo Maga*lona kay Julieanne San Jose.

Kinikilig si Maxene sa production number ng dalawa.

Biniro ko si Maxene na baka may something romantic going on between her younger brothe*r and Julieanne.

“Ay, boto ako na sila ang pinagpapareha kesa sa iba pa ang ipareha kay Elmo. Pero hanggang ‘yung parang love team lang sila, pero wala munang ligawan,” simula ni Maxene.

Mas gusto ni Maxene na mag-concentrate muna si Elmo sa career nito.

Pagpasok ni Elmo ng dressing room after ng production number nila ni Julieanne, inusisa ni Ma*xene ang kapatid.

“Elmo, sinisita ako ni Jun Lalin.

Tinatanong ako kung may girlfriend ka na. I told him na career ang priority mo,” sey ni Maxene sa kapatid.

“Wala pa po akong girlfriend. Career po muna talaga,” sabi ni Elmo.

My gosh, kino-control ni Maxene ang lovelife ni Elmo?

“Hindi naman, pero siya naman mismo ang nagsasabing career muna,” sabi pa ni Maxene.

JuliElmo, Most Promising Loveteam ngayong 2010?

Masasabi nating hindi pa gaanong sikat ang JuliElmo pero malaki ang potential nito para mahigitan pa ang hottest loveteam ng ABS-CBN na KIMERALD. Kung talent lang naman talaga ang pagbabasehan ay malaki ang lamang ng dalawang ito sa mga kasabayan nila.

 Ang JoshBie ang mahigpit ngayong kalaban ng JuliElmo sa poll na paramiha ng fans. Kataka-taka namang ang nangunguna dating loveteam na KIMERALD ay napakahina ng votes. Totoo nga kayang buwag na ang kanilang mga fans dahil sa mga isyung kinasangkutan nina Kim at Gerald at sa balitang paghihiwalayin na ang loveteam na ito?

Marami rin daw fans ang MELASON at ENRICH pero kokonti lang ang bumoboto sa kanila ngayon. Malay mo, magpower vote sila bago matapos ang botohan sa Nov. 22. Ang mga fans naman ng ALKRIS ay napag-iiwanan na talaga. Sabagay, matagal nang naglaho ang loveteam na ito!


ISA SA PINAKAMAINIT na loveteam nga-yon sa Kapuso Network ay ang tambalang Elmo Magalona at Julie Ann San Jose. Kaya naman happy itong si Elmo na napansin at unti-unting tinatangkilik ng publiko ang kanilang tambalan.

“It was really unexpected. It wasn’t like planned or something. Nangyari lang. Marami ang nagkakagusto, so thankful talaga ako,” sey ni Elmo.

Nag-level up na ba ang kanilang loveteam at papunta na sa totoong ligawan?

“No. We’re friends right now. Don’t have to rush things.”

Sure na ‘to
