I went ahead and subjected myself to Canadian Idol this evening while playing WoW. Why do I do this? It’s embarrassing. Any one of the top 24 on American Idol could sing circles around these jokers.
Why do you think Canadian Idol is so much more laughable than American Idol? I mean, I know they’re both bubblegum shows with not much merit, but at least you can say most of the finalists on American Idol can sing like mofos. Why is it that most of the people I see on Canadian Idol can’t sing as well as most drunks at my local karaoke bar?
It’s not that Canadians can’t sing; we can. I know oodles of Canadians who can sing like crazy. And it’s not that the good ones aren’t auditioning, because I personally know 4 or 5 amazing singers who tried out last year. Is it the judging? Is it the piss-poor accompaniment that lacks the oomph to showcase the voices? What is it?!
