    Canadian Idol


    I just finished watching the premier episode of Canadian Idol. I know many of you posters to the South will not have the opportunity to see it, unfortunately. The first episode was great! They showed stops in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg, and have already handed out 49 tickets to Toronto. Most I would say I agreed with... there were a couple of unusual choices, but I thought that they were just colourful enough to make the cut.

    The judges are Sass Jordan (Canadian rock artist), Zack Werner (Cdn. equivalent of Simon, but not AS nasty), Farley Flex (music station director.. not afraid to call it like he sees it), and Jake Gold (artist manager, and again brutally honest). They make an interesting panel, and I think so far their choices have been great.

    Having never seen the first episodes of American Idol, this is the first time I have seen what these judges are up against. I can't imagine hearing 1000's of voices and having to be responsible to pick "the one". The only thing that is even more unfathomable is these people that actually think they can sing!!!<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\"> I can't believe people that love and care about them would actually allow them to put themselves through that. As one young man said when he left the audition "They did find a Simon, don't believe them!"

    I am looking so forward to actually being able to vote for this one!

    Hi,
    I'm so glad someone else is watching the show!! It would be great to talk about it every week like we did for AI.
    I am very excited to finally get the chance to vote and I can't wait to see the show from my area...Halifax. My mom swears that the winner willl be a Cape Bretoner...we'll see. But it looks like it will be a great show!!!

    The judges were cool, although Sass Jordan was a bit of a pushover. Overall it was pretty good; I even thought Ben Mulroney was half decent as host.

    My fave so far is the guy who sang Superstar. He was incredible. Can't wait for next week in Halifax.

    Have not seen the show. When is it on? I would not be surprised if the winner came from Cape Breton or Nova Scotia - a lot of great talent from the Maritimes.

    Thought I'd bump this back up. This weeks show was simply amazing. For pure talent this show was better than any semifinal show on CI, or AI1 and AI2 for that matter.

    That French girl, Audrey de Montigny, is simply amazing. I'm predicting right now that she will win the whole competition. I'm so glad she had the most votes last night. Gary was great as well. I was hoping Sherry would make it through but she has a chance in the wildcard show next week.

    Hey, I said that to my Mom right after the show.
    This week was a great show. I was a bit disappointed that Sherry didn't make it through...I voted for her 10 times.
    but it is so nice to see the Nova Scotian boys in there. Ritchie and Gary rock!! And hopefully Kevin Murdoch will do well in the wildcard show. I've heard stories about his incredible talent that we haven't seen yet...he was sick during all of his auditions.

    I like Gary but I'm not into Ritchie. I don't think he would have made the top 10 (neither would Jenny) if the talent had been distributed evenly from week to week. I thought that this group was so good that everyone of them could be in the final 10.

    I'm really looking forward to hearing Kevin sing again. It's cool that he's getting another chance.

    Have you noticed how much Audrey looks like Josee Chouinard? The resemblence is crazy!

    OMG Mike, I thought I was the only one who saw it. It is simply uncanny, the likeness between the two of them.

    So far I am relatively impressed with CI. There are a couple things that drive me to distraction about the voting, just as there was with AI. It makes me crazy that there are a zillion teeny boppers out there with nothing better to do than sit on the phone and call 1800 times for the dreamboat of the bunch. I wish that people would vote for the talent and not for the look, but I know that will never happen.

    My choices for top 5: Candida, Audrey, Tyler H., Billy, and Sharon (praying for the wildcard).
    I know you may be wondering why Billy, and I can't really put my finger on it, other than I think he adds a spice to the group. He is different and not afraid to show it. I just really like him!

    Who I think will make top 5: Mikey will go far (teeny bopper vote), Audrey, Candida, Tyler, and I am going to go out there and say Toya.

    Will be interesting.

    sk8tngcanuck,
    I love Sharon too. She made me cry! I think she could really be a true idol just because she is such a positive role model for little girls. Like she said, "This is for all the chubby girls!"

    Does anyone know of somebody taping CI for a Round Robin or something? There is no other hope for those of us in the States to see it lol.

    Wildcards

    Well this week was pretty good. I was glad that Toya got in but I was hoping for Andrew to get in. He did a great job on Me And Mrs. Jones.

    Good to see that they let 2 wildcards through instead of just 1.

    Hey Mike, I'm from NS too!!! Cool

    I missed the results show and only caught about half of Monday's show. What happened? I thought it was weird that there were only 7 singing...what happened to the rest? Where did Sherry go? I liked her. And I agree with you about Andrew. His "Mrs. Jones" was smokin.

    Apparently Sherry pulled out of the competition. I'm not sure why but it's to bad since she had real talent.
