The 5 remaining contestants had a brief show at the CNE tonight so I hauled myself out there with 8,000 other crazy fans. For those of you who missed it, here's a little recap:
Jon Dore hosted the free event and unfortunately, he had the same old lame, sad jokes. Each contestant sang a song, answered an audience question read by Jon, then sang a second song. The questions were unmemorable but here's the songlist for each peformer:
First out was Jacob with Brickhouse. He was much more animated than when he performed the song on CI2. Dancing, running around, hopping...very cool. His second song was Everything.
Jason sang Cuts Like a Knife, then Proud Mary. He did a decent job. Theresa was next and sang her best songs of the Top 10: Good Mother and Song for a Winter's Day.
Jon kept commenting on how hot Shane looked tonight - I don't know about that :rolleyes but he did some pretty hot songs. He sang Angel (the Lionel Ritchie song) and surprise, surprise, I believe in a thing called love.
Last was Kalan....I can still hear all the screams ringing in my ears! haha For the 3rd time in his Cdn Idol history, Kalan performed Paint It Black. Did an amazing job like always. He then rocked it harder with Born to Be Wild.
All the idols came out and did a rendition of their best (imo) group performance - from the rock & roll night. It was pretty awesome! All in all the show was really good but much too short (less than an hour). Hope they do a Canadian Idol 2 tour now that I've had a little preview!
