Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For Canadian Idol Top 5 Performances Featuring Music From The Beatles


A full week has gone by and I still I can’t believe that Amberly Thiessen has been eliminated from this competition. What a season this has become!

Well, the jury is still on out whether this group of singers will collectively garner positive interest from the viewing public. Personally, I find this Top 9 mixture very strange, almost surreal, like something from an Idol “bizarro” world. I still don’t understand the judges’ thought process and ultimate decision in selecting some of these […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread Of The Canadian Idol Top 10 Performances


And so it begins. Another strange season of Canadian Idol. It didn’t help that a David Bowie theme night christened this year’s Idol agenda; if anything, it contributed an even more bizarre aura to this year’s edition of Canadian Idol. I just don’t get it – I truly don’t. Theo Tams is the only developed, […]

Canadian Idol Season Six Top Ten Finalists


Is it just me or do the years seem to fly by since this Idol craze invaded North America? It feels like yesterday that I was sitting here writing Vocal Masterclass articles for American Idol, followed by Canadian Idol and, yet, here I am again. And, one year older to boot! Not good! At any […]

Jaydee Bixby Scores Big with Cowboys and Cadillacs CD


It’s truly official. I said on the Los Angeles American Idol Tour thread that I want to adopt American Idol Season 7 runner-up, David Archuleta. Well, add Jaydee Bixby to my Christmas in July wish list. As many of my Canadian readers know, Jaydee was the Canadian Idol Season 5 runner-up in 2007. His adorable […]

Theo Tams: On His Way To The Canadian Idol Top Ten And Beyond


The more I think about it, the more I realize that Theo Tams is in a league of his own. Not only did he give a spectacular performance during his Top 20 showcase, but also he emerged as an articulate, genuine and passionate artist. However, more so than any other contestant, he displayed stellar musical […]

Vocal Masterclass Discussion For Canadian Idol Top 20 Performances


Well, well – looks like we have some real winners on our hands early on in this Canadian Idol Season. Who might they be? Well, according to moi, they be pretty well everyone from Group 2 minus four exceptions. However, 22-year-old Theo Tams from Lethbridge Alberta and 29-year-old Omar Lunan from Scarborough, Ontario were phenomenal […]
