September 1-2 - Round of
4: "Big Band"
We are left with Teresa, Jason, Jacob and Kalan to start
the show. This week's theme is "Big Band" and because
there's only four left, we'll get each other performer
to do two songs. And we have a Canadian Idol orchestra
this week, led by Orin Isaacs (now that "Open Mike" is
out of production.).
Ben flubs the first two sentences. This can't be good.
But our judges are decked out in their finest duds,
ready to judge, judge, judge their way to a firmer
stomach. Farley especially has got it going on with his
Our first song is "Paper Moon" as sung by Teresa Sokyrka.
This is definitely up her alley. You can tell instantly
that people like Teresa feel that the effort for getting
through to this point is paying off. Her scatting, as
always is brilliant. Simple, yet effective.
Jake: I guess at some point when you saw the list
you'd hope you'd get that far!
Farley: You're the one that's least out of their
element in this spot.
Benbot makes a comment that Lionel Ritchie said that she
had a lot of soul. Teresa confirms that she feels these
types of songs makes it come out.
Second to go is Kalan Porter with "Moon River". He
starts out slow (but that's what the song calls for, I
guess that I can't really fault him) but he picks up
where he needs to. He's really crooning to the crowd
(and the teenage girls who can hit redial like crazy).
Sass: What a treat to hear that side of your
voice. You are impossibly dreamy tonight.
Zack: Anybody who watches you and doesn't
understand doesn't deserve to watch you.
Benbot comments that he thinks that if someone hadn't
heard the song before that they most likely would have
thought that Kalan had wrote it himself.
Number three is Jason Greeley with "I Won't Dance".
Jason first off looks like he's right out of the Brian
Setzer Orchestra. He does an okay job with it, but I
don't know. it seems a bit too low key for me. However
it's hard to keep a Newfoundlander down!
Farley: Considering Vegas is continentally
opposite to Newfoundland, that was great!
Sass: That was AMAZING!
Jason comments that he now doesn't dance because Farley
asked him not to!
Logically, Jacob Hoggard is next with "Straighten Up and
Fly Right". Once again, Jacob Hoggard is one of a kind.
Nobody can deny him that. He's really calmed down for
this. He looks like Mickey Mouse in the outfit though.
When all is said and done though he does a good job.
Zack: The dude has a distinctive voice.
Jake: They're going to make you into a movie
Benbot comments that Jacob has transcended another
We've started another cycle tonight and that means that
Teresa is up again. She's picked "Dream a Little Dream".
Again, it's worth noting that this is pretty much
Teresa's night to lose. Thankfully for us she doesn't,
Zack: You're this much short of being wonderful.
Sass: (something incomprehinsible about candy)
Ben doesn't say much. Good? Bad? Yours to decide.
Kalan this time is back with "The Way You Look Tonight".
He seems a little more relaxed than the first one and
actually has a lot of "oomph" in it as
Jake: You are smooth. You're doing something to
Farley: How do you fit the voice of a 52" man
into a 34" suit?
Ben comments that he can't say anything the others said.
Can I please say Hallelujah!
After the break we see that Jon Dore is part of
theorchestra? Let's hope not. His saxomophone is not
that good. And that's all.
Jason Greeley for his section selection is "It Had to Be
You". Unfortunately it may not be him as I think this
may be his week to go. He does give it a good try but it
might not be enough.
(As an aside, I realize why I can't get tickets this
year - all they do is give them to CTV on-air talent.
Jake: I thought it took you a while to get into
Zack: I think it might have been a little high
Ben says Jason owns the camera.
Last up, with his second performance, is Jacob Hoggard
singing "Unforgettable". He goes right after it and it
could be the calmest he's ever been. He really gets into
it. Nice voice choice on the song.
Sass: (drinks out of her mug) Unforgettable.
(said in a sexy voice).
Farley: Your showmanship is uninhibited.
Want the results? Well
heeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeee they are!
No medley until after the first commercial. Had to pay
the band I suppose!
Jon Dore gives a behind the scenes looks on how to get
last minute tickets. You have to really want them, and
have to really support one person in particular. And
people were betting the farm on getting in - they've
come from as far away as Medicine Hat and St. John's to
cheer on their faves. We continue with the Jon Dore
hijinks when the Idols try to wake him up. With
breakfast and other silly things.
Matt Dusk is the guest performer. He probably needs some
exposure now that "The Casino" is done. He gets two
songs in fact.
Jon Dore is back after the break and announces that from
the "Best of the Worst" show that our winners (if you
want to call them that) are Margaret-Ann Kern and Marvin
Poon. They win... a golden garden gnome. How's
that for alliteration? And it's called the "Petey"
I just got it. Petey = Pity?
Going to centre stage for the bottom two are Jason
Greeley and Teresa Sokyrka. and going back to the Rock
is Jason Greeley. He most certainly has enjoyed his time
and Ben comes clean when he tells him that he can't
dance! He sings us out and has done all of Newfoundland
