Canadian Idol Season Five Announces Their Stellar Lineup Of Stars For The Top Ten Performances

It’s going to be an exciting summer of music and, with all the famous rock artists traversing the Idol stage, I, personally, will miss eliminated rocker contestant Tyler Mullendore’s contribution to the mix. I can only imagine the entertaining performances he would have presented throughout the season and sometimes that’s all we are left with in this very unpredictable show.

However, I am still very happy – not thrilled – but pretty happy with this year’s Top 10. Some have yet to evolve, but I am certain that we are in for a few artistic surprises along the way.

Here is the show’s lineup as posted on the CTV SITE.
