Canadian idol goes online for star search

The search for Canada’s next pop idol has headed into cyberspace.

“Canadian Idol” said Monday that wannabe contestants can now get a shot at stardom by submitting an audition video online – and it didn’t take long for dream seekers to apply.

Within minutes of the announcement, a few grainy videos appeared on the show’s website,, most of them featuring off-key amateurs offering up more enthusiasm than talent.

Executive producer John Brunton said he’d be surprised if more than a handful of video tryouts result in Top 100 contenders, noting the cross-Canada audition tour has already produced strong competitors.

But he said the online experiment was meant to broaden the talent search to those unable to travel to an audition city. (link)
