    Kalan's Still (and the eyeboink at the end), Kalan's first Born to be Wild, when that sweet shy boy came out and rocked it and blew the socks off everybody (whodda thunk it?), Kalan's full version of House of the Rising Sun really really showed off his voice, and of course, Kalan's Nature Boy - to think that an 18 year old boy could put so much feeling and emotion into a hard song to sing, and Idol song notwithstanding, loved his final singout of Awake in a Dream with the little catches in his voice. He was feeling it. Well, really, anything by Kalan. He was simply amazing.

    Jacob's antics were over the top for me, but I do have to give him kudo's for being somewhat entertaining - his Space Odyssey was an amazing Idol performance.

    Theresa's Good Mother, and especially Song for a Winter's Night - loved that performance. Her voice was in better shape and she nailed it. I liked Elena's Mary Jane, and her Leaving on a Jet Plane. And of course some of their group songs were terrific, with Canadian Railroad Trilogy and their instruments leading the way. Liked In Your Eyes as well, and the finale duet of True Colours was so sincere and heartfelt, you couldn't help but fall in love with the two of them.

    And just as an aside, I recently saw Kalan do three shows here in B.C. He's not the same boy from Canadian Idol. He's a rock stah! now - put on an amazing show, especially in Kamloops, so confident, jaunty, cocky almost, as he belts with that beautiful voice of his. Lots of video available of his performances if anybody wants to see the new and even better Kalan! (pm me)

    CI2 was such a wonderful season I'm having a hard time narrowing down the best moments.

    For starters I adored the Top 3 and many others along the way. Everyone added something to the show.

    1. Kalan:
    -Born to be Wild (Top 10) floored me. I've seen him perform this number as the encore in his concerts and it's incredible. He adds a touch of fiddle. Very cool.
    -House of the Rising Sun
    -Lady (top 32)
    -Nature Boy

    2. Jacob
    -Everything was awesome even with the contrived jacket move
    -Space Oddity left my mouth hanging open. Blue jumpsuits will never have the same meaning anymore
    -the Cheap Trick number from his final sing out

    3. Theresa
    -Ready for Love (gave me shivers)
    -Good Mother

    I also loved Shane's "The Way I Feel" and Elena's "Mary Jane".

    The true highlight of the season was definitely Gordon Lightfoot's "Canadian Railroad Trilogy". I play it time to time and still gets me. Not only was it a great national moment, but the group sounded very tight and harmonized well. This is something you take for granted if you've been watching AI4 all season long.

    Other favourite moments:
    -Jacob and Shane singing Under Pressure during the finale
    -Jacob giving Ben a wet willy
    -Kalan forgetting choreography to the group numbers LOL
    -True Colours duet
    -In Your Eyes Top 3 (Kalan also performs this in concert and it's very moving)

    Off to watch those videos again.

    I forgot about Toya! She was great. Ugh, I can't believe she was robbed. The best of the Top 11 were out early, IMO (With the exception of Billy. Loved Billy)
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
