Top-07 Performance "The Standards" (Big Band)
I just want to start by saying how
Amber will be missed in the Canadian Idol show. I do believe she was the
worst in her performance last week but overall was a better performer.
Do well in all you go for Amber. You are an amazing talent. Now down to
tonights show. We are down to 7 performers and it’s getting hard to see
them go as they are all so talented. This week it’s the Big Band era
what they call the Standards. Tonight the 20-piece Big Band led by Orin
Isaacs (The Canadian Idol Orchestra) returned to the stage, a huge
improvement compared to the karaoke-tapes used so far. Enjoy the show.
01. Suzi Rawn
This is a different
type of song for Suzi to be singing and I must say I enjoyed it
thoroughly. She looked awesome and loved the hat. She has such a
beautiful smile and it shows in her performance. She just shines when
she is singing. Great opening and a hard act to follow. She looks so at
ease on stage and that husky voice just makes her stand out. When she
sings she looks like she is having a blast.
02. Aaron Walpole
Tonight I was just
stunned how much Aaron has grown. That performance was the best I have
seen him do so far. He had a great look and moved around on stage and
just glowed when he was singing. Nobody could have done a better job on
a song tonight. He looked relaxed and just having a good time while he
was dancing. I loved his performance tonight. 9 out of 10. Let’s hope
Zack isn’t right when he says he was so excellent that it was a bad
thing and the people may send him home. Let’s keep Aaron here he
deserves to be in the Top-2 finals.
03. Melissa O'Neil
On this one I don’t
agree with the judges at all. The voice was good but I thought another
song would have been better. I didn’t like the dress and the hair this
week. I like when her hair is curly and she dresses like a younger girl.
I know it’s the era but I didn’t care for it. I believe Melissa has a
big voice and the personality to go with it and I hope Canada keeps her
here for a while longer.
04. Josh Palmer
Wow Josh the hair is
AWESOME!!!! You actually can see your face now and boy you’re a good
looking guy I must say. You looked great and have such a soft and sweet
sound to your voice. I liked the way you did the song but I did find it
a bit slow. I guess either you love Josh or you don’t. I like him but
he’s not the best singer there I believe.
05. Rex Goudie
Here’s a talent that
you can’t deny: Sexy Rexy. Tonight I loved the suit and the way he
handled himself on the stage. He sings with such ease and just so like
he was born to do it. I thought he would have trouble with the big band
but this song was great and he put his own little twist to it. Rex is
still my pick to win this whole thing. 9 out of 10 .
06. Casey LeBlanc
fantastic this week but alas the voice just wasn’t there like it should
be. Throughout it was shaky and somewhat scratchy when she tried to sing
the high notes. I totally agree with the judges this week and she really
needs to go so as one of the other singers doesn’t leave before their
time. Maybe in a few years she will be where she needs to be vocally. 7
out of 10
07. Daryl Brunt
Well there isn’t a
lot I can say about this performance except its time you and Casey both
are gone home. I do believe the judges were a little harsh with you and
could have softened the blow of how bad it was but none the less it was
bad. Either you or Casey should go this week if Canada gets it right. 6
out of 10. He totally destroyed that song.
