August 18-19 - Round of 6: "Gordon Lightfoot"

Due to technical difficulties (specifically my van not getting to its destination before the show was on that night as I was moving from Newfoundland to Ontario), I was not able to see the performance show, but I will try my best to give a good summary nevertheless!


This week the idols were singing the songs of Canadian song legend Gordon Lightfoot. As was trumpeted in a CTV press release, tonight marks the first time ever (in any "Idol" version around the world) that the Idols
are allowed to bring their instruments on stage with them. This is done when they are performing Lightfoot's "Canadian Railroad Trilogy". Jason Greeley starts out on guitar and Kalan Porter joins in on violin. Next is Teresa Sokyrka on mandolin, while Elena Juatco is on piano. Jacob Hoggard and Shane Weibe are both on guitar on well. They all put in a
solid performance to show tribute to Lightfoot, who is in the audience. At the end Lightfoot joins them on stage to comment.

I should say as a side bar that it is a welcomed presence that Lightfoot brings to the show as he was very close to passing away not too long ago.

A quick summary from the night before.

Elena sang "Early Morning Rain" and was told by Sass that she had the best performances on a personal level so far. Jason chose "Rainy Day People" and Farley said that it was his type of song. Jacob chose "Sundown".
Zack says that he's "singing like you should". Shane's choice of "The Way I Feel" gathered a comment from Sass that she's totally changed the way feel about him. Teresa, singing "Song's for a Winter's Night" prompted Farley to comment that she came out of her slump. Kalan sang "If You Can Read My Mind". Zack can't understand how such a loud voice comes out of a small person.

As we're now a one hour results show, how are we going to fill it, kids?

Top answer on the board. show me FILLER!

<<ding>> Number one answer!

So we get to be treated to a song by Billy Klippert, last year's third place finisher. I will control my enthusiasm at this point. Actually it's not half bad,
but between you and me his discs haven't been exactly flying off the Wal-Mart shelves.

And of course we get a Jon Dore bit. He's a psychotic. no, wait, a psychic this week. The best part was the comment about Jake Gold. (supposedly inside his head) "I'm Mr. Jake Gold. I forgot to set the VCR for Gee-opardy. I mean Jeopardy! I could be that guy on that winning streak. I'll take Jake Gold is brilliant for $1000, Alex".

All of the final six finalists are then forced to take part in Benchat before there is a nice retrospective of what Debra Byrd, the vocal coach. It turns out she's been part of 5 Idol franchises. Nice!

This week's votes.

Kalan: SAFE
Jacob: Bottom 3
Teresa: SAFE
Elana: Bottom 3
Shane: Bottom 3
Jason: SAFE

And out of those three. we lose another female. Elana bids her adieu.

NEXT TIME: Summertime hits. Can you tell we're stretching?
