I am thrilled that Canadian Idol is taking a "break". There is no reason that Canadian Idol could not be as successful as American Idol. "So You Think You can Dance" Canada proves that the calibre of Canadian dance is every bit the measure of that in the States. There is no reason to believe that the level of singing is not equally high. The difference? The competence of the Canadian judges. More to the point, the incompetence of the team of judges that Canada has been subjected to. The talent is out there. The show could be good However, the judging team we have had for Canadian Idol has turned it into a gong show. Could we not find four Canadians who might be able to honestly assess Canadian vocal talent and give these kids an opportunity to grow? It is sad to think of the number of truly gifted kids who have subjected themselves to this ridiculous "screening" process only to be presented to four people who truly have no idea what they are doing. How very sad to think of how many young people have been wounded unnecessarily. How many truly talented Canadian kids have been "weeded out" because the present four judges are not capable of recognizing their ability. The judges have made Canadian Idol an embarrassment. it doesn't have to be!!!

hello, I also really wish there was a canadian idol I'm 11 and I want to sing. I am pretty good and want to have the chance to sing. I really want to show my singing. Why isn't there a Canadian Idol junior. If that happened I be so happy to try out, and ya, we wouldn't be able to sing as good as the pros, but let us have a chance.

hope you make one. really it would be great
