July 28-29 - Round of
9: "British Hits"
Tonight we cross the pond and celebrate all things
First up is Jacob Hoggard, singing David Bowie's "Space
Odyssey". And he's got a blue shiny jump suit on (which.
um. doesn't leave much to the imagination.). But it's
true Hoggard, and he nails it.
Jake: Nobody has ever taken it to that as a
performance level. Bowie would have been proud.
Farley: You're the most anticipated performer!
Jacob says he's having too much fun to be scared.
Herman's Hermits' "There's a Kind of Hush" is Teresa
Sokyrka's choice. It's well done, but a bad song choice.
Sass: I love you - but not that performance.
Zack: Holy Marie Osmond! Don't choose the wrong
song! DON'T CHOKE!
Teresa tells Benbot that she sang the song for her mom
(when she was defending the judges' comments). She's
going to have a good run in this, I think.
Jason Greeley thinks that Elton John was right when he
said that "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting". The
audience claps along immediately and again he nails the
Jake: Just keep being you!
Sass: You are what Newfoundland stands for - a
man of the people!
Benbot asks who taught Jason to dance - he says his mom
did. You had to see it to understand the joke.
Kaleb Simmonds has once again chose a slow song - this
time it's "Tears in Heaven". Again, it's that reverb in
his voice that bugs me. He also debuts his new buzz cut
- which makes him look like he has a REALLY big head.
Zack: That was brilliant.
Farley: You personify soul.
In the Benchat, Kaleb comments on his new do. NEXT!
Elana Juatco takes on Cat Stevens' (but lately Sheryl
Crow's) "The First Cut Is The Deepest". She seems to
really enjoy herself but it just kind of seems "run of
Jake: You made a really lame song great.
Zack: I thought it was really bad.
Elana doesn't say much in the Benchat, but she's still
U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" is Josh Seller's
choice. He debuts some new straight hair and thus he is
a DEAD RINGER for World Idol Kurt Nilsson (you remember
- the hobbit from Middle Earth?). Oh, and the song
Farley: You upped your game on the entertainment
Sass: That wasn't the greatest performance you've
Josh confesses to Benbot that he loves singing that
We come back after a short break and it's time to talk
to Jon Dore. He wants to thank Britain for everything
(besides music) that the wonderful nation has given us.
Mr. Belvedere (this got the loudest cheer)
The planet Saturn
Books that are hard to read
The Number 6
Things that are hot (you may now, at your discretion,
insert Winner's Circle clues here)
And finally.... Mr. Belvedere.
But above all, the Idol franchise! Otherwise many people
would be out of a job, I wouldn't be recapping - you get
Quite possibly the best John bit ever.
Manoah Hartmann hopes she has "Sweet Dreams" with the
Eurythmics. I enjoy it, but really, she's going to be
killed by the arrangement - IT'S BLOODY AWFUL!!
Jake: By the end, you nailed it.
Sass: I liked the theatrics, but I didn't like
Benbot says that she's the spitting image of Gwen
Stefani (from No Doubt) and Manoah never has seen the
Kalan Porter has chosen "House of the Rising Sun" by the
Animals. It's really well done, he sure can belt it out.
We find out it was his audition piece and I can
understand why he reprised it.
Farley: Your future is unbelievable!
Kalan just smiles sitting in the Benchat area.
Last up is Shane Wiebe with "Something About The Way You
Look Tonight". It's really good, excellent song choice.
Jake: You don't take any chances.
Farley: I think you tried to do something
Benbot compliments Shane and he's blushing! At least I
think he is.
At the end, there's extra time, so it's family hugs all
This week's group (therapy) song is "Do Wah Diddy"
crossed with "Wishin' an' Hopin'". Who makes these
choices? At least they end with "Satisfaction". And then
"You Really Got Me".
Jon Dore this week is at the Tennis Masters Canada event
with the Idols. They sing O Canada. Jon gets buddy buddy
with Canada's Daniel Nestor (one of the highest ranked
double players in the world) and Andy Roddick among
And as for the fate of our players.
Kaleb: Bottom 3
Josh (back to the curly hair): SAFE
Shane: Bottom 3
Manoah: Bottom 3
Manoah can't avoid fate for a second time and she's
packing her bags to go home.
She gets really emotional right after the announcement.
She has found the whole experience as one incredible
ride. She says to never ever give up on yourself.
She sings us out, and we're done.
