Canadian Idol

Check this link for video around 9 pm ET. Ill be posting it here, after the jump, as soon as it becomes available.

Canadians and border-dwellers, chat away!

  • Mitch MacDonald – “Blue” by the Jayhawks – Great song, love the alt country, yes I do! Too bad Mitch has the personality of a wet dishrag. There’s some serious lack of charisma here. Jake thinks Mitch belongs in the Top 10 based on his unique tone, but thought he made a poor song choice. Sass enjoyed it, and loved his falsetto. Farley liked it too. Zach didn’t love the falsetto, he says, “Nice guy…may not be enough.”
  • Gary Morrisette – “House of the Rising Sun” by the Animals – I’m digging this punked out “House of the Rising Sun.” It’s not a copy of the Animals version, and that’s a good thing. Nice guitar work! I’d download this single from iTunes. Sass didn’t like it. Farley doesn’t like the beginning, but liked the arrangement. Zack thinks re-arranging the song was a smart move. Jake says ditto.
  • Katelyn Dawn – “Zombie” by the Cranberries – GAH! Weak. Katelyn performs a strictly karaoke version of this song. She’s hopelessly drowned out by the band. It’s bad. Farley thought it was a good song choice. Zack liked the first chorus and saw the potential in moments. Jake thinks she needs choose more melodic songs. Sass liked her attitude. Hm, they must want her to advance!
  • Oliver Pigott – “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers – Oliver hits and misses. This is a hit. Great song choice, great phrasing, very heartfelt, very soulful. I’ll be shocked if Oliver doesn’t make the Top 10. Zack likes that he sang with real guts and real glory. Jake compliments him on his blues ability. Sass loves it. Farley says, “Unforgettable.”
  • Sebastian Pigott – “Bring it on Home to Me” by Sam Cooke – Oh man, the Pigott brothers are bringing it! This is sensational! Hot and bluesy…not only can Sebastian sing, but he’s got TONS of charisma. Hah, he breaks out the harmonica! Jake hopes there is room for two Piggots. Sass calls him smart and clever. Farley calls him a straight up sex symbol. Zack says he proves it’s not a singing competition. Oooh.
  • Earl Stevenson – “Like a Rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan – An odd song choice–it’s not much to work with vocally–but Earl performs with personality and passion. I hope he makes the Top 10. Sass says, “That was dope.” Farley says, “You get into the music, and the music gets into you.” Zack says he’d go see him in a show right now. Jake calls him unique, and hopes the people at home feels the same way.
  • Katherine St. Laurent – “Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar – There’s nothing unique going on here, but her vocal is pretty good. Katherine stage presence is very tentative. She’s got some work to do. Farley thought it was a very well prepared performance and that her voice sounded great. Zack says she has the best voice here. Jake says her best performance on the show. Sass says, great song choice, great singing…Top 10 performance.
  • Drew Wright – “The Reason” by Hoobastank – I call them “Hoobastink” ha ha…not a fan! Hate this song, but Drew can sing, so he gets a pass. Zack says “Pipes 8, Rockstar 2.” Jake thinks he’s one of the best singers in the competition. Sass said there were some, “Transcendental like Bono moments in that song. I wouldn’t go that far…
  • Farley loves his voice, but wishes he’d perform a little more aggressively.
