August 4-5 - Round of
Tonight is Rock and Roll night. One word: Beware.
Jon Dore takes the kiddies to Cleveland to visit the
Rock and Roll hall of fame - in a private jet,
nonetheless! Everyone is blown away by the exhibits.
First up is Jason Greeley singing "Proud Mary". He gets
right into it, asking everyone to clap. And then sing
along. Umm.. this isn't a rock concert, dude. It's
Jake: I don't know if it was singing, but it was
Farley: I'd like to hear more of your pure voice.
Second is "I Believe In a Thing Called Love" by The
Darkness, as sung by Shane Weibe. He starts okay, and he
portrays the song well but the singing and theatrics are
well, well overdone. Judges?
Sass: I appreciate the work you did to make it
sound like a hen being plucked alive...
Jake: That was just repulsive.
Ben said that he "broke all the rules". Okay, then.
Third up is Joshua Sellers. He's taking it slow with Goo
Goo Dolls' "Iris". It's not bad, but it seems that it's
not as natural as it should be.
Jake: That song has never been rock and roll, and
neither was that performance.
Sass: It was just okay.
Fourth is Teresa Sokyrka with "Piece of My Heart" by
Janis Joplin. Umm... this is not really her and it's
What is with everyone today, I wonder?
Farley: You have to pick a song... that will
entertain the country.
Zack: Don't... AAAHHH!! (reference to her picking
Fifth is Kalan Porter who's doing "Paint it Black" by
the Rolling Stones. Finally, a decent choice. He may be
shy but he certainly can belt it out. Nice and relaxed.
Jake: I think you can do better.
Zack: Do something real!
Mr. Bizarro Jacob Hoggard is singing "Everything" by
Lighthouse (y'know, the "Lightning crashes" people?).
I'll give him one thing, he's a ham for the camera. He
sings it well but it's hard to sing something people
Farley: Really good choice of song.
Sass: How can I sit in front of you and not be
moved by you? (line from the song).
Jacob is told by Ben that the women in Canada are putty
in his hands.
Elena Juatco has chosen "I Just Want to Make Love to
You" by Etta James. It's not really great, actually.
Jake: It wasn't the best thing I've heard
Farley: I enjoyed the performance.
Kaleb Simmonds is last up. He's singing Elvis' "Hound
Dog". It's probably the best performance of the night,
but that's not saying much.
Sass: That was brilliant.
Zack: (stands up and claps)
So all in all this was a very BAD performance night.
I'd like to get rid of them all, but I'm only one
Tonight's medley is "Old Time Rock n Roll", "We Will
Rock You", and "I Love Rock and Roll". Hmm. I detect a
And look, Heinz Winckler, the South African Idol is in
the house! Oh joy.
Jon Dore shows us how to rock (he's actually subtitled
his own guitar playing). He breaks into the mansion to
teach them Rock and Roll. Teresa and Kalan look like
they have the biggest problems. Cheesy, yes, but
As for the scores on the door...
Elana: Bottom 3
Josh: Bottom 3
Shane: Bottom 3
And the first guy to go is Jacob Sellers. He's very much
enjoyed his time on the show and sings us out.
If you're keeping track at home, Kalan, Jason, Jacob and
Teresa have never been centre stage for the bottom
three. Will they keep it up?
