Look what started last night on CTV!





To all my Stateside AI friends. I know. I'm sorry. That's cruel of me when I know you are suffering in the throes of Idol withdrawl. Maybe you can rig up some kind of satellite dish to draw this into your tv. Your missing some great talent on Canadian Idol.

And just because I'm a big old meanie, I'll leave you with a little taste of one of our family's favorite winners, one that I voted my fingers off for, from Season 2, a homegrown Southern Alberta talent, Kalan Porter. This is the singer's choice song he did on the night of the finals, against the advise of the judges. And he still won. By a landslide.




So if you're looking for me on Monday and Tuesday nights, well, you know where I'll be. You can always come and join me.

Well.. I'm probably a disgrace to America when I say this.. but I've never watched AI.... I don't even know who one.. the only clips I ever see is through you!! LOL LOL...

What I have to say about this.. is this boy was born with a mic in his hand.. he doesn't even STRUGGLE to belt out the tunes... it's amazing... some singers look pained when they sing.. his just fell right off his lips!!! PERFECT!

Wow- Canadian Idol!
I've never seen AI either (just like flipflop mom)- only the clips from blogs, or a few seconds on the TV while channel surfing...
But my 81 yr old mom not only watches- she votes! She has a younger friend in her town that calls her and they compare notes...so cute!

Hello, Susanne, which part of Canada are you living in?

Are you in BC? If so, Kalan Porter is coming to Vancouver to perform a fundraiser concert on June 24th 2008 Tues from 7pm to 8:30pm. The venue is Michael J Fox Theatre, 7373 MacPherson Ave, Burnaby, BC.

Phone theatre's box office --- 604-664-8875.

Thanks.

Hi Anonymous. Thanks for the info. We actually just saw Kalan in concert in our city a few months ago. And we saw him on his big tour after he won Canadian Idol a couple years ago. He's a very talented young man!

Tammy: I love your mom! How fun is she.

I didn't know Canada had an Idol show.
My girls are already talking about next year's shows. As for me...I am kinda glad AI is over and we aren't glued to our TV every tues. and wed!
Enjoy!!

My gosh, what an amazing voice that young man has. I had no idea there was a Canadian Idol. Lucky you. Summer TV here in the states leaves a lot to be desired. Really, I wish Idol ran one season right after the next. I have no idea why they don't - I could watch it 52 weeks out of every year.

Lucky, lucky you.

You know, I NEVER watch Canadian Idol - ever! It feels like it's filmed in our local legion.
Actually, they SHOULD film it in our local legion. And yet Kalan Porter is a pretty talented fella.

Michelle said...

WHOHOOOO!!!! It's baaaack eh? I remember Kalan winning last year..

L-O-V-E IT! That was joy beyond description. It reminds me of the American Idol when the group did Shout to the Lord and rocked the house!

It was the number one downloaded song off of iTunes!

What a great voice he has! And isn't it something how this song has made the rounds on AI and now your show and is getting such air time! How amazing, and how great is our God!
