Top 6 perform Pop Rock

Last week had a shock result as Greg Neufeld was sent home after a fantast week where the Idols performed the hits of Queen Queen.

This week, Ben Mulroney is reminding us that we have to vote if we don’t want a repeat of last week’s fiasco.

It is Pop Rock that the Idols will be performing tonight and are getting some tips from Grammy Award winning Maroon 5 Maroon 5

Tara Oram
Aly & AJ - Into the Rush - Walking On Sunshine Walking on Sunshine
Tara has managed to pull out another good performance this week. Her vocals have certainly improved and she really seems to be having fun on that stage. Jake thought it was a tough song to make your own because it’s been everywhere but the performance was good although there were a few notes that weren’t quite there. Farley thought it was too pop for him. Sass thought it really suited her personality and loves watching her on stage but doesn’t think she sings as good as she looks. Zach doesn’t think anyone could come out and perform like that at a club and stay for more than a minute.

Jaydee Bixby
Lonestar - Lonely Grill - Amazed Amazed
Isn’t Jaydee just as cute as a button? Yes, but his twang is so put on. I simply can’t accept him as an authentic artist. Farley can hear the hearts of 16 year olds throbbing all across the nation but unfortunately his ears are too. Sass agrees and think he also looks better than he sounds. Zach says the same thing he said to Tara. If he walked into a club and heard that he’d be outta there. Jake thinks he’s not believable.

Matt Rapley
Michael Bublé - Call Me Irresponsible - Everything Everything
This is a better song choice for Matt. Marginally. It’s not really pop rock though, is it? Sass thought it was the best performance so far. Zach thought it was a lot better than he’s been the last couple of weeks but people don’t simple that much through stuff unless they’re in a pageant. Jake thought there was a lot of entertainment in the song and thought he looked very comfortable at the piano. Farley thinks he’s evolving and that’s what this is all about.

Carly Rae Jepsen
Melissa Etheridge - Yes I Am - Come to My Window Come to My Window
Carly is very pitchy tonight. That long note was awful. Sorry Carly, not the best week you’ve had. Nice arrangement though. Zach says it wasn’t as bad as some of the others this week. Jake thought what she did was really smart and made it the Carly Rae way. Farley thinks she has the strongest definition of self out of those left in the competition. Sass thought that was the best version she’s heard of that song.

Brian Melo
Live - The Distance to Here - The Dolphin's Cry The Dolphin’s Cry
This is definitely the best performance so far tonight. I absolutely love the way he owned the stage and got into it with the guitarist. Jake thought he disappeared for a while but he’s bounced back and is really doing a good job. Farley loves how melodramatic he is. Sass thought he was confident and sang with a lot of emotion and it was inspiring. Zach thought it was only real performance of the night.

Dwight d’Eon
Santana - Supernatural - Smooth (feat. Rob Thomas) Smooth
Dwight closes the show out well despite the fact that I can’t stand the song. Nice to see him playing the guitar part of Carlos Santana. Love his jacket too. Farley loved the energy of his performance. Sass thought it was a bit of a production but his voice wasn’t there. Zach thought it was cool. Jake did think it was vocally that strong either but really liked his guitar playing. Ben adds it was the first guitar solo in the history of Canadian Idol.

Tomorrow night, one more goes home. Who will it be? Don’t forget to vote!
