John Brunton is hopping mad, and he’s letting Canadian Idol viewers in Toronto know it."Last night's elimination of three competitors from this year's Canadian Idol Top 22 is disgraceful. Toronto lost half of its competitors in one night, and 75% of the eliminated competitors were from our city. These were three great young singers - any one of which would have made a fantastic Top 10 competitor.I wish Mr. Brunton would make up his mind. When Atlantic provinces vote for their own, it's not regional voting and you need the entire country behind you to move on. Then when the Centre of The Universe doesn't get behind it's own, then regional voting is encouraged. I wish he'd just shut up, he looks desperate which he is to get more Torontonians tuned in to his dying franchise of a show.While the rest of the country is buzzing about Canadian Idol and the success of their hometown heroes, Toronto is not paying attention. Toronto is not supporting the local talent found right in its own backyard.
Who in their right mind would cheer on the performances of Justyn, Derek & Christine from last week (apologies to those who are fans but all three of them were rather weak in the performance area). I'm born and bred in Toronto and could care less where competitors are from. I want a good voice and a sense of entertainment from the performance. If they're from Aklavik or Petty Harbor I don't care just so long as they're entertaining. A lot of the competitors the other night just plain weren't entertaining, especially the 3 voted off from Toronto.
