Carl Risely is hoping to exceed everyones expectations tonight with Michael Bublé - Call Me Irresponsible - Me and Mrs. Jones Me and Mrs. Jones

This isn’t Carl’s best vocal performance. Normally he’s on the button but he’s not as smooth tonight. Perhaps he’s finding it tough living up to the expectations. Mark is sure there are a lot of ladies that really got up on the lyric he delivered but he only met the expectations, not exceeded them. Dicko expected it to be a home game for him and thought that it was. Marica thought it was terribly romantic. Kyle could tell Marcia liked it because he heard her squealing and there was nothing bad he could say about it.

Marty Simpson is going to try and find the pocket in Dave Matthews Band - American Baby - Single - American Baby American Baby

Big Band week was always going to be a big ask for Marty with his rhythm limitations. Dicko thought it was strangely engaging. Marcia says that at least he’s trying. Kyle says near enough is not good enough. Mark says putting a brass section to an alternative song just doesn’t work.

Matt Corby is stepping out with Michael Bublé - It's Time - How Sweet It Is How Sweet It Is
Ph: 1902 55 55 63
SMS: MATT to 19 10 10

If ever there was someone who could give Carl Risely a run for his money on his home turf it would have to be this guy. Matt was simply sensational. Marcia says “That’s what I’m talking about”. Kyle loved the outfit and thought it was a perfect performance and that he’s a superstar. Mark thought it was awesome. Dicko says what a difference a week makes and thought he really showed some star quality tonight.

Natalie Gauci is singing some Nat King Cole with Nat "King" Cole - Unforgettable - Orange Colored Sky Orange Colored Sky

I really like this song and I really like Natalie’s performance of it. That was sweet! Kyle thought the song really suited her but thinks she has clothesorexia and hates her outfit. Mark says “Wham Bam, Thank You Maam” and that he’s digging her so much. Dicko says although it’s supposed to be Carl Risely’s night, that was hers. Marcia loved to see her fronting a big band.

Carl Risely is being a little cheeky with Harry Connick, Jr. - Blue Light, Red Light - Just Kiss Me Just Kiss Me

This is an incredibly strange song to be singing. I am kinda feeling that his Big Band night was a few weeks ago. Mark thought it was really great and entertaining. Dicko never thought he’d be the one to give us pure entertainment this year on Australian Idol. Marcia really liked it. Kyle thought it was a good song but the band let him down but then he adds that they were only here to blow and blow they did. He’s such a funny guy!

Marty Simpson is closing the door on his Idol experience with The Doors - The Very Best of (Bonus Track Version) [With Bonus Video] - Light My Fire Light My Fire

I’ve never liked this song and Marty has just reinforced that for me. He’s pitch problems and lacking rhythm are incredibly painful to endure. Dicko says that not entering into the spirit of big band was an understatement and thought it was pointless. Marcia has nothing of substance to say. Kyle says he’s created a new genre by dragging big band to rehad. Mark thought it was like trying to light a fire with a wet match.

Matt Corby is taking all the screaming girls in the audience Bobby Darin - Rhino Hi-Five: Bobby Darin - EP - Beyond the Sea Beyond the Sea
Ph: 1902 55 55 63
SMS: MATT to 19 10 10

I think Matt has really owned it tonight and really outshone Carl and really shows what an all-round talent Matt is. Kyle thinks he’s a chameleon. Mark thinks his versatility and vocal range is outstanding. Dicko didn’t think it’d be his night tonight but he really pulled it off.

Natalie Gauci closes the show with Ella Fitzgerald - Ella Fitzgerald Selected Hits - How High The Moon How High The Moon

I’m really impressed with Natalie this week. She seems to have snuck up on me. Kyle thought it was really nice but couldn’t understand a word of it. (Someone needs to tell him what scatting is). Mark says there is only one girl left in the competition and she deserves to be there at the Sydney Opera House and gives her a Touchdown. Dicko thought that tonight she revealed herself as a major star. Marcia thought it was totally fearless.

I’ve really enjoyed tonights show – apart from Marty’s performances. Next week I’m actually going to the show so I’m really hoping that Marty is going home tomorrow night as I really don’t want to have to hear him sing live.
