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)
