Idol cuts Nova Scotia's Dwight d'Eon

Maritime lobster fisherman Dwight dEon was eliminated from Canadian Idol Tuesday night, paving the way for next weeks semi-finals with blond Elvis Jaydee Bixby (Alberta), indie chick Carly Rae Jepsen (B.C.) and frontrunner Brian Melo (Ontario).

Monday was old standards night, widely considered the toughest theme show of the Idol experience. Canadian crooner Paul Anka offered advice, but dEons vocal limitations crushed his performances of the Frank Sinatra hit I Get A Kick Out Of You and Nat King Coles Unforgettable.

Public opinion will shape, in part, the song list for the semi-finals which air Sept. 3. One song per semi-finalist was chosen following a seven-day online vote. Voting ended midnight, Tuesday.

Geographic location: Nova Scotia, Alberta, Ontario
