A Pocket Full of Murder

EEEEEEEEE!!!!!! (a.k.a. Yet Another Canadian Idol Entry)

Best. Group Sing. EVER.*

Six talented kids (oh, all right, contestants -- admittedly Jason looks about 40), six instruments, and the "Canadian Railroad Trilogy". With Gordon Lightfoot beaming approval in the audience.

Go on.** You know you want to. It's worth it even just for the musical "duel" between Kalan and Jacob near the end. Man, that kid can play fiddle. And Jacob's not bad with his guitar either.

My love for this show knows no bounds. Even though Elena got booted this week after giving one of her best performances ever, and I cannot, for the life of me, understand why Jason's dimply, grinning mug is still there... he'd just better not make it into the Top 3, is all I can say. Because that would be all kinds of wrong.
