So what happens for the winners after Canadian Idol and American Idol? I have yet to hear any of them singing a huge hit on the radio. I hear their names mentioned once in awhile and see the occasional CD in A&B Sound, but are they like "one hit wonders" or what?
Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Burton Cummings, Neil Young to name a few famous Canadian singer/songwriters all made it in the music industry on their own merrit and hard work.
I just don't see these "Idol" performers having the staying power or the material.
