Bon Jovi - Have a Nice Day - Who Says You Can't Go Home Who Says You Can’t Go Home
I’m totally convinced that Jaydee is in the wrong reality TV show. He should have been on Canada’s Next Top Model. His singing is incredibly average but he looks like a magazine cover. Jake thought he sang it pretty will but didn’t think it was believeable. Sass thought he did what he did really well. Farley hoped it was going to be a bit more energetic. Zach compared it to a guy sitting at the lights singing along to the radio.

Bon Jovi - These Days - This Ain't a Love Song This Ain’t A Love Song
Brian is clearly the better singer, better performer and more believeable. Sass thought it was really good. Farley thought it was melodramatic in the best way possible. Zach thought he sang from his heart like a real man. Jake says “Brian 1. Jaydee, no score”.

All I Ever Wanted – Canadian Idol Winner’s Single 2007
Another typical Idol winners song. I guess it was ok but I’ll leave my verdict until Brian has sung. Farley doesn’t think it came from where he sings from. Zach says that everyone deals with pressure in different ways but Jaydee is cracking like a bad egg. Jake thought there were some weak spots in the song but actually thought he was believeable. Sass thought he did a good job with a song that probably wasn’t his thing.

All I Ever Wanted – Canadian Idol Winner’s Single 2007
A much better version than Jaydee’s. The song certainly suits Brian better. Zach thought he knocked it out of the park. Jake thought it sounded like he wrote it. Sass thought he owned it. Farley thought it was unbelieveable.

The final song is the choice of the contestants.

Tom Jones - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Tom Jones - It's Not Unusual It’s Not Unusual
Seriously, this guy is embarrassing. Cabaret. Cruise ship. Karaoke. Impersonator. All these words sum up Jaydee Bixby. Anyone notice that star isn’t on that list? Jake thought it was entertaining but lacked swagger and was a little amateur. Sass thought he cut a dashing figure in the suit. Farley thought it was much closer to who he is. Zach says that if it was down to the cash, he’d be his choice to manage.

Leonard Cohen - Various Positions - Hallelujah Hallelujah
Brian has had some fantastic songs this year and this is definitely one of them. Sass congratulates him on picking another fantastic song and doing a great version of it. Farley thought it was really touching and his good personality comes out when he sings. Zach thinks he doesn’t need to win because he’ll have a career no matter what. Jake loves the humilty and grace that he has and thinks he’s something truly special.

So that’s it. The songs have been sung and now it’s time to vote.

Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne will be on the two hour grand final tomorrow night.
