Season 3 Top 22 performance show


Isn’t it so good to have a Canadian reality TV show on the air?  Thanks CTV!

Bad news for Shelaina Anderson.  Before we even get to a performance show and Shelaina has injured herself in rehearsals and cracked one of the bones in her foot.  The injury doesn’t just affect Shelaina though.  Her partner for tonight is going to be getting a stand in and according to Jean Marc, it’s a big surprise. Who is it? Season two winner Tara-Jean Popowich of course!

Jean Marc: Hani, you are the real deal.


What a night.  I’m not sure Kloe was as good as the judges suggested she was. Definitely a massive challenge for her but it wasn’t tight at all.  Kirsten would have to be my favourite of the girls.  She’s just delicious to watch.  

It’ll be a tough call at the elimination with Shelaina out.  What is going to be fair if she is able to come back next week? The drama that will unfold at the elimination!

Who were your faves?
