Australian Idol lost its last female contender tonight as Chrislyn Hamilton was voted off the show.
17yo Hamilton went out in style showing sportsmanship and good humour, singing up a storm with “Get Ready.” She hugged the remaining contestants and kissed the judging panel while singing her swansong, even managing a boogie with Kyle Sandilands. It contrasted with other younger performers who had left the reality series in tears.
Hamilton’s exit leaves Idol for the first time with 4 males competing for the title: Wes, Luke and tonight’s other “bottom two”, Teale and Mark. Next Sunday Chris Isaak will be guest judge for a night of American hits.
Tonight’s verdict show included a live performance by P!nk.
Ironically over on Seven, there are three males dancing it out for the Dancing with the Stars title too.
Also good to see TEN’s Idol site allows for embedding of clips, something TV Tonight has long encouraged for social networking (other networks take note!). With that in mind here is the embedded finale number from Chrislyn.
