Canadian Idol Season 5 Top 22 announced

Now that the Top 22 has been decided, each male competitor will perform live on Mondays beginning June 25 and female competitors will perform live on Tuesdays beginning June 26 on CTV. The first two live performance shows are 90 minutes in length with subsequent performance episodes one-hour long.

After each live, performance show, Canadians will vote for their favourite competitors and results will be revealed during a half-hour show on Wednesdays, beginning June 27 at 7:30 p.m. ET on CTV.

On Wednesday’s show, the two competitors with the least votes from both groups will be eliminated, leaving 18 to compete the following week. The process will continue with four competitors eliminated each week until the Top 10 is finally determined on Wednesday, July 11.

For the rest of this week, each member of the Top 22 will be profiled on CTV’s eTalk at 7 p.m. ET. Members of this group are:
