Canadian Idol Top 10 Welcomes Melissa O'Neil and Suzi Rawn

Published: 2005-07-08
Melissa O'Neil, 16, and Suzi Rawn, 22, are the newest members to join this year's Canadian Idol top 10 after eleven other competitors were eliminated. O'Neil secured the largest portion of the 1.5 million ballots phoned-in by viewers. "I was really eager to perform again, to tell you the truth," she said. "That's why I rushed towards the centre. I was like, 'Okay, let's do it again'."

Suzi Rawn, who is from Kamloops, brought a harder edge to the competition singing Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son" the night before. "I sort of stepped out of myself," she said after the show when explaining the feeling of hearing her name being called. "I can barely remember it. I sort of go into another place when stuff like that happens. It was all too much."

Rawn becomes the eighth member in the top 10 with the two remaining spots to be filled by the chosen Wild Card competitors next Tuesday.
