Australian Idol opened for the night with Toby Moulton saying he had to make an important announcement.
Toby announced that he was dropping out of Australian Idol after much consideration and soul searching during the past week. He said he had chosen not to follow singing as a career. He apologised for all who had put their faith and money into him but said he had to do what was right for himself. He wished the remaining four contestants all the best and asked if it would be OK with them to sing with them at the grand final which airs November 22.
“I am a teacher who can sing”.
Andrew G then went on to reveal that Toby would have in fact been part of the bottom three. Hayley and Stan were safe leaving Nathan and James as the other two in the top three.
James was voted for the least and would have departed Idol had it not been for Toby withdrawing from the competition.

Top 4 went on to perform songs of the naughties – that is – songs of this decade from 2000 – 2009 with guest judges for the week Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte.
