Hi IdolCanadien, good to see you on the job again tonight!

If you're a Craig fan I'm sure you'll love it and will buy it and play it, I won't however.
Jake - that was without a doubt the best thing you've ever done on the show
Sass - WOW unbelievably great, I had chills WOW
Farley - to step up at this point in time shows you're a man who can be respected
Zak - I've only got this to say (then he runs up and hugs Craig)

Hi Stickle, I'm not sure why I'm here really, I don't really care for either of the final 2 but it's the last Monday night till next summer so what the heck!

Eva follow with Natasha Bevington's (spelling?) Wild Horses. It's a boring song and I've never heard it before. Eva is delusional if she thinks this song will win over converts she didn't have before tonight. I hope she has a better song in the bag for later if she's wanting new people to vote for her.
Sass - you are an international calibre artist and a jewel in the CI crown
Farley - it was incredibly mature and incredibly Eva, so well done
Zak - not sure how a brilliant a choice it was, it was cool but you haven't won a Grammy yet
Jake - you're letting people in to a little peek of the artist you'll be and you did it very well
Craig's second performance is Celine Dion's I Surrender. I can't tell you how much I detest this song (& Celine Dion). Craig's vocal isn't the greatest on this song either to my ears (they hurt listening). His performance is overwrought (like Celine's). Two down for me and no reason for him to win at least on what he's done tonight.
Farley - you're making a career for yourself here and now
Zak - you're the Freddy Mercury of Canada
Jake - very brave to do that song again, I thought at times the band overpowered you but a good performance
Sass - you broke out of your shell Craig, God bless you
Eva's second song was the best of the evening so far. What's with Farley Flex outfit he looks like a ringmaster at a circus.

Eva sings her version of Meant To Fly. The song will be released next Monday according to Ben. I'm not sure but I think I might have liked Craig's version a bit more than Eva's. The way Eva is doing it doesn't impress me at all. It's overwrought like Craig's version of I Surrender. Maybe the song is pure dreck after all. I'm sure there won't be a club mix or extended disco version no matter which version gets released. Still no reason for me to vote for Eva (or Craig) tonight.
Zak - first half of song didn't show all the colours of your voice but the second half there's nobody on any Idol show like Eva Avila
Jake - Craig's was a power ballad but your's was totally different, I'd love to hear the recorded version of it
Sass - your song, you delivered it like a Goddess
Farley - you showed versatility and the various styles you can sing you're a songwriter's dream.
Hmm, I'm anxious to hear the Idol song now after your comments.
Craig's last song tonight is Rascal Flats' What Hurts The Most. I didn't like this song when he first sang it and I'm still in the don't like it camp tonight. The biggest difference tonight is Craig is no longer a tattooed bottle blond skuzzy kid. He's now a bottle brown, made up, dressed up kid who hides his tattoos under leather sports coats. Is he a Canadian Idol? No not in my opinion.
Jake - not the best performance tonight but you did a great version
Sass - the first time I saw you I thought you were a star and that hasn't changed
Farley - good job you have an amazing range
Zak - you didn't necessarily kill that, you chose that to be the defining moment and that's okay right now right then.
