Back to Toronto: The
Top 90 - June 9
More pep talk from the
judges. because it's time for.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
