The One Performance Show July 25th 2006

I won't be voting tonight. Based on that show, MOST of the performers were off key at points and didn't nail their performances. Plus: at 2 hours, this show felt way too long to me.

Canadian Idol results show - July 25th 2006

Results tonight had me cursing and yelling 'WTF?'... nothing about it made sense tonight!

Brandon Jones was nowhere near the bottom three... but three ladies far more talented than him were: Ashley Coulter, Steffi D (again!? She isn't the top choice of the group, but she was good last night, and of everyone she's quite original), and Sarah Loverock. Sarah was eliminated.

This show proved that pre-teen girls top the list of voting numbers... teen dreams seem to so far be outruling talent.

Canadian Idol Performance Show - July 24 2006

Like the American show using Elvis Presley, the use of Rolling Stones songs gave a difficult job to the contestants to do something different... except some of them succeeded.

I didn't agree with the judges for some performances. I found Rob James didn't really impress by really staying on a few repeated notes for the song Start Me Up.

The guy who got the worst from the judges - and I agree - was Brandon Jones. I think either he or the above-mentioned Rob James will be eliminated this week.

First Elimination - The One - July 19th 2006

I do have to agree here with another blog I read: the folks on this show lack the 'sizzle' of the Idol shows... maybe it's due to us not getting to see them coming up to this point.

I DISagree with the choice of letting performer Michael Cole be the one saved though. As a fan of pro-wrestling, that name makes me chuckle - but performance-wise, I don't like his sounds or his white trash appearance. Based on the audience reaction, many of them don't either.

This show now already has it's Carmen Rassmusin/Scotty Savvo/Bucky Covington, and in only one week. He hasn't been around long enough yet, but we'll see if he breaks their stay records.

The One

I know: this is really turning out to be my summer of performer shows...

If they show us more of the stuff behind the performances, it could be very interesting. The voting/results step sounds like a lot of work though. We'll see how it works out Wednesday.

One neat thing for this one: I can actually vote! As a co CBC-ABC production, we can vote through the Website... plus, we're limited to 10 votes tops, so we'll see no cases of thousands of votes from one person.

Canadian Idol Results Show July 18th 2006

Well I guessed the final results, but I was shocked at Steffi D being voted into the bottom 3!

I really got an idea how tiny Ashley Coulter is this night also, when she stood eye-to-eye with a younger Steffi.

Kati Durst being the one first eliminated came as no surprise though.

(This was delayed by a thunderstorm)

Canadian Idol Performance Show, July 17 2006

I echo a comment made by Ben Mulroney here: playing with a full band made a huge difference in quality.

Considering Nelly Furtado's recent admission that she's bisexual, I'm surprised that Idol didn't consider her too racey for the show.

The performances on this show overall were above what I expected. Kati Durst still underwhelms me. I'm guessing she'll be eliminated tonight.

Canadian Idol Results Show - July 12th 2006

I just came from watching the show that determined the top 10 -- and yet again I was only half right, and shocked by who I got wrong.

I was right about Sheldon Elter and Ashley Coles not making the 10, but the other two shocked me...

Keith MacPherson didn't make it, but Brandon Jones did? Keith was almost perfect each week, but Brandon was mediocre.

On the womens side Nancy Silverman at her quirky best was cut, but Kati Durst (who was VERY unimpressive) made it?

I expected some surprises, but Canada, we all got it wrong.
