What did you think of Martha Joy’s Top 18 Performance of Josh Groban - Josh Groban - To Where You Are To Where You Are on Canadian Idol?

Last night the guys showed how much they want to stay in the competition. Tonight it’s the girls turn.

First up tonight for the ladies is Martha-Joy.

Martha Joy
Josh Groban - Josh Groban - To Where You Are To Where You Are
1-866-9-IDOL-01
Martha has a beautiful voice but I’m afraid she has little room to grow. While there is amazing talent, she doesn’t have the vulnerability that is required in this game. Jake thinks she’s a little stiff and needs to show some personality. Sass thought it was magical though. Zach is wanting some joy and does think she’s on a different level to most of the other contestants in the competition.

Tara Oram
Martina McBride - Wild Angels - Safe in the Arms of LoveSafe in the Arms of Love

Is it just me or does Tara remind you of Carrie Underwood? Only difference is that this performance is very pitchy. Farley wants to see some movement in her performance. Sass thought she did a good job. Zach thinks she looks great on camera apart from the fact that she looks 12. Vocally he thought it was Carrie Underwhelming. Jake thought there wasn’t much dynamics.

Naomi-Joy Blackhall
Dido - No Angel - Here with Me Here With Me
1-866-9-IDOL-03
Again a very pitchy performance but slightly better than last week. Zach thinks that over the last two weeks she’s proven that she just can’t sing that well. The judges aren’t really impressed with her other than she looks good.

Carly Rae Jepsen
Sarah Slean - Sarah Slean - Sweet Ones Sweet Ones

I like this girl. She’s a fantastic performer. Great song choice too. Zach thinks it would be ridiculous if she wasn’t in the Top 10. Jake loved the personality that came out and thinks she’ll go beyond the Top 10. Farley thinks she’s the girl to beat.

Scarlett Burke
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle: 20 Greatest Hits - Proud Mary Proud Mary
1-866-9-IDOL-05
Is anyone else asking why Scarlett was called up into the Top 22? This song has just been murdered one more time. Jake just doesn’t know what to say. Farley mentions song choice. Sass says it didn’t show the best part of her voice. Zach just sits there and shakes his head.

Montana Martin Iles
Fall Out Boy - Infinity On High - Thnks Fr Th Mmrs Thnks Fr Th Mmrs
1-866-9-IDOL-06
This wasn’t as good as last week but very much Montana. Does anyone think she looks like Lukas Rossi from Rockstar? Farley wants her to sing a song next week. Sass loved her performance.

Mila Miller
Otis Redding - The Very Best of Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness Try A Little Tenderness
1-866-9-IDOL-07
I’m not sure what I think of this. The song is quite average but Mila’s personality shines throughout. Sass loved the sweet moves and loves her sense of humor. Zach thought there were some great moments and thinks she is an undefeatable star. Jake says she just feels the song and that means so much to him. Farley says that was a Killer Thriller from Mila Miller.

Annika Odegard
Joss Stone - The Soul Sessions - Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin' On Me?), Pt. 1 Super Duper Love
1-866-9-IDOL-08
I’m not sure what it is with all the look-a-likes this year but Annika reminds me of Reese Witherspoon. Not the most inspiring performance. Zach thinks that the judges made a mistake and thought it was amateurish. Jake agrees. Farley thought the song required three cups of soul and that was only a teaspoon. Sass offers a nice comment to end it saying she liked the energy.

Khalila Glanville
Four Tops - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: Motown 1960s, Vol. 1 - I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) I Can’t Help Myself
1-866-9-IDOL-10
Another boring song from someone who is so much better. I can not understand why contestants pick these tired old songs. Jake thought the performance was strong but it was outta tune. Farley thought it was a theme show and goes on about picking songs that you’d put on your record. Sass thinks she can do much more than what she showed tonight. Zach thinks she looks like a star but he wants everyone to sing songs that matter.
