Tonight the second Canadian Idol will be announced. Theresa Sokyrka and Kalan Porter are both very gifted performers, but Kalan is expected to win it going away (likely based just on looks). Last night was the only episode I've seen, but each performer was pretty solid.
Kalan is a Christian, and his first song last night was a cover of Mercy Me's I Can Only Imagine. It brought a highly derisive reaction from the Simon Cowell-wannabe judge, Jake Gold ("I'm not knocking anybody's faith here, but c'mon, this is the Canadian Idol final!!") It was a pretty gutsy musical pick from a kid on the biggest night of his life, and he did a good job with it. (Kalan, the baby-faced angel that he is, followed that up with Born to be Wild, BTW.)
Our closer neighbors may be able to pick up the TV signal from across the border, if you care...

But once she understood that we couldn't sound just like a tape we'd never heard, she was a real trooper. Turned out pretty good.

Oh my. Listen and watch at your own risk. Painful.
