Back to Toronto: The Top 90 - June 9

More pep talk from the judges. because it's time for.

DUETS

Jon Dore does more hotel room hopping. And guess what? Dave and Sheena, our real life couple is going at it as a duet. There's even a kid that looks like Jacob Hoggard from last year's bunch. One group hears Jon's knock and slides a note on the door telling him to go away!

The first duet is Bree and Stephanie, singing "Time After Time". Erica looks like Cindy Lauper with her hair. A couple also took some poetic license. One group felt like that they were the last to be chosen, as if it was schoolyard pick'em.

We move onto a sequence of "I Got You Babe". Some are good. Most are bad, sadly. But Sheena and Dave, well, there's no problem there. Awwwwwwwwwww barf.

Cher and Jenner attempt Time after Time. but there's no time left if you forget the words. Jason and Amanda have some major problems. Jason especially. They share a few tears after the song, each feeling that the other didn't stand up to the competition.

More duets happen after the break. And editing show us a real couple of duets. you can tell that certain people are going to be advancing on! Apparently the Moffat guy (Dave) is still around. It's nice that they leave the best singers to the end. There's a wonderful montage of "From this moment".

The judges are hard at work making their decisions. Many pictures are ripped off the wall. Who will stay?

At the end of the day, 20 at a time, performers come to the picture board. On the back, they will see the word SAFE or ELIMINATED. That's pretty much it.

It's a very tense time for everyone. Especially Amanda, who takes it pretty hard. Dave of Dave and Sheena moves on, but his partner does not. Jenner heads home. Rex Goudie is safe as well.

This is it.

FINAL SOLOS

48 are left. Only 32 will advance to the playoffs. After hotel room hopping, we head to Day 4.

Everyone must do an a capella song which they've just learned, and there's a two minute limit maximum.

But Cher has something to say before she starts. She thanks the judges for the opportunity to sing again in the top 100 once again. She's chosen "There you'll be". She's very happy that she's done.

Danny Papadatos of Saskatoon SK tries "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing". Bobbi Smith has chosen the same song as Cher. Amber Fleury also sings the same number. And she's really going for it.

Rex Goudie changes "Heaven" to make it his own. So does Daryl Brunt of Sudbury ON. Genevive Nadeau is also singing "There You'll Be" with her 'smoky voice'. Vince Benenati of Toronto has got a raspy voice but he hopes it's "Heaven". Suzi Rawn, our rocker girl of sings "I Have Nothing" but it's absolutely the opposite.

We then move to some people who have been waiting for what seems like forever. Melissa O'Brien and Julie Tellier are some of the people who just blank on the words, as the pressure is getting to them. Two minutes isn't a long time to recover. Then there's people like Stephane Aubin who are just making up words as they go along. This leads us into some tips by Sass about stage fright. And then she's singing in a recording studio? Betcha Paula Abdul doesn't do this.

And now, the announcements of the top 32. Right after the judges make their decisions. And they've made them. The groups have been separated into three groups of 16. Two groups will be good, one will be not so good.

Room number one. Jake starts by saying that most of them tanked, as he was disappointed as he had had high hopes for most of them. He leaves the room, leaving farley to tell them that they're

SAFE!

Room number two. Sass says that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. And tonight, it's a loss.

Room number three. We already know that they're safe. Zack starts by saying how nice it was that everyone worked very hard. But you're going through!

And after that, they're all celebrating together and telling everyone they love!

NEXT TIME: The first group of 8.
