In the news: Canadian Idol results


  • Judges’ picks line up with votes in Top 18 elimination
    “Both Sass Jordan and Zack Werner forsaw the departure of rock goddess Naomi-Joy Blackhall and Toronto belter Scarlett Burke when asked at the beginning of the show which women they would send home. When asked which male singers would be on their way, judges Jake Gold and Farley Flex both named B.C. crooner Clifton Murray, but missed the mark when they chose Halifax rocker Dwight d’Eon – who landed in the bottom four, but did receive few enough votes to be eliminated. Also ending his Canadian Idol run was Sarnia singer-songwriter Andrew Austin, who wowed the judges during this week’s performance (the first-ever where a competitor on the show accompanied themselves with an instrument) but landed in the bottom four for the second week in a row.”

From Leah Collins of the Victoria Times Colonist:

  • Victoria teen stays in Idol hunt
    “Clifton Murray, originally of Port McNeill, was given the heave-ho on last night’s episode of Canadian Idol, along with three other contestants. This makes Victoria 17-year-old Liam Styles Chang the Island’s only Idol.”

From Tina Comeau of the Yarmouth Vanguard:

  • Dwight d’Eon survives another week on Canadian Idol
    “D’Eon is one of two Nova Scotians left in the competition. Like d’Eon Tyler Mullendore of Cape Breton will be among the Top 7 males to perform Monday night. Naomi-Joy Blackhall of Halifax was one of the two girls voted off during this week’s results show. Also voted off the show this week were Scarlett Burke, Clifton Murray and Andrew Austin.”
