Well, at least this show is dispelling the myth that we're all humble and nice, but I still hope Lukas drowns in his eyeliner.
SaltySeaHag: CI is bad this year
Rock Star INXS was great. This year, I think our singers are ok, but don't expect either will actually win.
I'm not ashamed of our contestants, just agree that we probably have better people somewhere. Question is where? And why didn't they try out or didn't they qualify to try out? Who knows? Why risk what you might have that's great by being on a reality show?

Okay, so maybe I was a bit harsh with saying that the Canadians are dissapointing.
I think it was more about giving Canada a recognition in the world of rock.
Sure, I mean we have Neil Young and The Guess Who and other amazing Canadian Rock talent in our history. But, currently Canada's excellent rockers are not given airplay outside of Canada and a platform like this could showcase how incredibly talented Canada is and that we aren't all about Nickleback and Brian Adams (I know that I am generalizing... sue me). Last time around, we got to show that Canada has a great pool of talent... this year, not the same. Thus, I post a topic.
[Example? Billy Talent - amazing Canadian Rock band who are not getting recognition south of the border, but they should. Same with Three Days Grace.... and there are countless others]
I knew the moment that I posted that that people would say "what about.... and what about...." WELL WHAT ABOUT PAUL ANKA?!!!
In all seriousness, my point wasn't about how many famous Canadians have inundated the American market -- its about opening up how wicked indie ROCK is in Canada.
Sorry to have misunderstood what is evidently a sore subject. But, if I were you I'd keep the Paul Anka thing quiet.
PSSST! Gordon Lightfoot...
While I might agree this crop was worse than last year's if all I was looking at was the men, the women counterbalance that more than adequately. Last year there was ONE really good woman--Suzie. This year there are four times that number. That's not bad. Last year there were maybe... three really decent guys. This year maybe... two. Again, not so bad for this year's numbers.
