TORONTO (CP) _ Khalila Glanville, a daycare worker from Dorval, Que., is the latest "Canadian Idol" to be sent packing. Glanville, 24, was joined in the bottom three on Tuesday’s results show by Toronto’s Martha Joy and Hamilton’s Brian Melo.
Glanville’s rendition of "Natural Woman" _ famously sung by Aretha Franklin _ earned praise from the judges during Monday’s performance show, but viewers _ who cast 2.55 million votes this week _ apparently didn’t agree.
Also Tuesday, host Ben Mulroney announced that the "Idol" Top 10’s recording of "Believe In You" will be available for purchase at www.idol.ctv.ca and at various online music stores. Proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Next week, the Top 8 will be mentored by Enrique Iglesias.
In addition to Joy and Melo, the remaining finalists are: student Jaydee Bixby, 16, Drumheller, Alta.; lobster fisherman Dwight d’Eon, 28, West Pubnico, N.S.; waitress Carly Rae Jepsen, 21, Mission, B.C.; House framer Greg Neufeld, 23, Abbotsford, B.C.; singer Tara Oram, 23, Hare Bay, N.L.; and student Matt Rapley, 18, Regina.
