Rex Goudie performed live on the Canadian Idol stage last night. Goudie performed his hit single "Run". Host Ben Mulroney presented Goudie, the 2005 Canadian Idol runner-up, with a Platinum Record on behalf of Sony BMG Music (Canada) Inc. and Canadian Idol for his hit CD Under The Lights.

Eva Avila and Craig Sharpe were safe and Chad Doucette was called to centre stage with Tyler Lewis. After the commercial break the results were announced.

Ben Mulroney - "Eva and Craig you're safe".
Ben Mulroney - "Chad you're eliminated".

After the results were revealed, Mulroney thanked Doucette: "I am so glad you decided to come back and audition this year," he said. "If there is anything you have shown us in your run to Top 4 is how memorable you are."

"I don't know if I was as confident in what I wanted to do before I started this competition, but now I am absolutely positive I want to be a musician," Doucette said. "You guys showed me that it's alright to be unique. Thank you!"

"You've got a unique voice, which means you have to sing your own words," Jake Gold advised him after the results were announced. "Keep doing what you're doing and write songs."

Next week the top 3 will go to New York to talk with Tony Bennett.

This week Canadian Idol got a record of 4.3 million votes. "When the competition is this good and only four singers are left, each week is anybody's game", said Mulroney.
