Canadian Idol August 18th
Really good show tonight. I thought it might be really boring but the contestants all sang well.
1. Theresa: Amazing performance that has finally redeemed her.
2. Kalan: Another great performance, and Zach is right that he's going to win this thing.
3. Elena: Very good, was really surprised that she carried a slow song as well as she did.
4. Shane: I must give Shane his props for this. He's improving every week.
5. Jason: He was good, but only because he chose the safest song to sing.
6. Jacob: The vocals weren't there like I hoped they would be.
Predictions: Shane, Jason, and Elena will be bottom 3 with Jason going home.
Just a side note: Billy Klippert is performing on tomorrow night's show. Can't wait for that.
Totally agree with your assessment of tonights show. I was prepared for a snoozer, but it was fantastic. I completely agree with your bottom 3, even though there really was not a poor performance tonight.
Still not sure about Jacob. He is definitely not my cup of tea and I did NOT like that rendition of Sundown (which happens to be one of my favourite songs, I might add). That said, I still think it's going to be him and Kalan fighting it out at the end.
Interesting side note - During the Edmonton auditions, Jake was interviewed for the newspaper and said that they had found a guy in Edmonton that he fully expects to be this year's idol. I am assuming that is Kalan, and I find it interesting that he knew that early in the game, with all those thousands of singers, that they had found "the one".
PS - thanks for the heads up on Billy Klippert singing tommorrow - not that I would have missed results anyways, but now I will make sure I hide the remote from my hubby as he tends to only want to watch the final 5 minutes, and flicks back and forth during what he deems "the boring parts"

You beat me to the punch! I was going to post an idol topic - Two Thumbs up for tonight! I was worried about how this group would treat Gordon's songs, but I have to say I was really impressed. Even Elena - who I can't stand - managed to sing "In the Early Morning Rain" very nicely. Why can't she sing normal like that all the time -maybe that would change my mind. I loved Theresa's rendition of "Song For a Winter's Night" - very moving. Kalan was so, so. It was not great, but I thought he put some feeling into the song - a Lightfoot classic and one of my favorites (If You Could Read My MInd). Shane sang "The Way I Feel"- another classic of Gordons and probably one of his more difficult melodies - very well. I enjoyed Jason's rendition of "Rainy Day People" - I think it really suited his style. I was not crazy about Jacobs' interpretation of "Sundown."
Thanks Gordon for bringing some class to Canadian Idol and some great material to work with!!!!!
