Tuesday, July 22nd would bring us the results we had been eagerly awaiting after the Rock & Roll performances from Monday evening's Canadian Idol.
I, for one, was looking forward to the end of this week because of some comments that I did not especially like and once again Ben continued to refer to the "rock and roll angels" as dead people:
"In an ironic twist, the Top 9 fought for their Idol lives by performing songs by dead rock stars", said Ben Mulroney. An 8 year old in my livingroom asked me "why does he keep saying "dead" people?".
Hello - Canadian Idol - it is not humourous to many of the viewers!
Depending on the results of this show, I had given some thought to drawing the curtains on Canadian Idol and declaring it "VSA" (Vital Signs Absent) on my television set.
Let the results roll in ...
The 3 with the least number of votes stand in anticipation.
This is one spotlight that no performer wants to stand in.
The long awaited moment arrives!
It appeared to me that Sebastian Pigott was aware that he could possibly be leaving the show this week. He looked very surprised that he had survived this week's judgement day.
Sebastian, your supporters came through for you. You have definitely made your alliance with many of the viewers. As you well know, next week, you will really need to "court" the judges with an outstanding performance.
We will now be seeing the "guest mentors" on subsequent shows. First up will be former Bush front man and recent solo artist Gavin Rossdale, who will coach the Top 9 for 'Unplugged' week. Rossdale, who is married to Gwen Stefani, will also perform live during the Top 9 Results show on Tuesday, July 29th.
It will be interesting to see what advice is offered to the Top 8 Contestants, and which ones will take the advice to heart!
