June 23-24 - Group 2
Who will join Joshua Seller
and Brandy Callahan? Let's find out.
I've noticed, in recapping this show, that Jake Gold
can't banter with Ben to save his life. But that's
neither here nor there. Ben calls Sass "Her Sexellency".
Last week, everyone was a bundle of nerves, so Ben leads
some deep breathing.
Next week, we'll be having Pilates class with Daisy
Leading off is Anna Cyzon, a criminology student
at University of Toronto. She was very nervous to get
her gold ticket. And she is into fashion as well. Her
selection was "Son of a Preacher Man". She plays it soft
when she shouldn't. This is a song that you really need
to belt out.
Jake: Good song for you, not that exciting for
Farley: Could have been more dimensional.
Anna says her parents are super positive about the
Mohanza Kelly, a high school student from Toronto
has his biggest fan in his teacher who egged him on to
go to the competition, and look where he is now! He
loved the idea of working together during the top 100.
sings a soulful song which I don't recognize and does an
Sass: I don't think you were in total control at
Zack: I wish you'd sing a little better.
Mohanza says he's named after an African king.
Third on the stage is Liz Titan, a high school
student from Montreal. At the celebrity gold ticket
interview, she knocked their socks off. Her choice is "I
Have Nothing". Her voice is belting it out, but the
enunciation is off slightly.
Jake: You're living up to our expectations.
Sass: You've got the raw goods.
Liz says hello to her mom and her friend when she is
given the chance.
Batting clean up is Marc Levesque from Regina. He
can't believe he's still here, being that he missed some
words during the round of 48. He loves playing the
piano. His song is "At This Moment". It's quite nice.
Zack: It's like a no-name brand. You don't stand
Farley: Good job.
It turns out that Marc was also a competitor in "Regina
Starting off the second half. Kaleb Simmonds is a
musician from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. He felt working
with the vocal coach (Byrd) was just super. He belts out
"Water Runs Dry" quite well. But it needs to be
Zack: (salutes him)
Ben wants Kaleb to sing every day because it shut Zack
Filomena Pasqua is studying at Carleton
University in Ottawa. During the gold ticket run, Zack
interrupted her, said he loved her, and left. She finds
the whole process overwhelming. She gives us some
R-E-S-P-E-C-T. It's nice, but like others, she doesn't
belt it out.
Farley: I didn't get the "wow" feeling.
Sass: It was subdued.
She finds the singing is often quite tough.
Second-last to go is Elana Juatco from Vancouver,
but she studies at Queens University in Kingston. She
wowed the judges to win her gold ticket by her unique
style. She feels performing is all in the shoes.
She's leavin' on a "Midnight Train to Georgia". She
really gets into it, dancing around and everything. Bit
much at times though.
Jake: By far the best in the two weeks so far.
Sass: That was wicked!
Elana has Alanis as her Canadian Idol.
Finally we have slightly shy Kalan Porter who is
from Medicine Hat, Alberta. A violin is his instrument
of choice. He sings "Lady" and it comes out very silky
Farley: You're going to win this competition.
Zack: I think you just bumped someone into the
Kalan finds that talking to the judges is much harder
1.3 million votes were cast. Who made the top 3?
This week, Jon Dore's bit involves bad miming and the
dragon boat races. The idols sing O Canada and don't let
Jon go to the clothing optional beach. But they get some
good exercise paddling.
Y'know, sure the sketches are cheesy but they are purely
Here's how the votes went:
Kalan: Top 3
Kaleb: Top 3
Elana: Top 3
And moving on are... Kalan Porter and Kaleb Simmonds.
Next time! Group 3. What a shocker.
