I couldn't tell you even one of the contestants or winners from CI, sadly. I'd love to get to watch other countries' versions of Idol.
Of the top 3, they all had amazing voices, it really depended upon your personal preference for style or genre. Sadly, the winner, Kalan Porter, has put out a couple of albums of adult-oriented popish crap since. He's capable of so much more. The second place winner, Theresa Sokyrka had this smooth, melodic, smoky-jazzy-folkish voice. She's put out some indie stuff, but has mostly faded into oblivion. The 3rd place contestant has probably achieved the most fame. Jacob Hoggard fronts the band Hedley, and is the only CI contestant to date to have been signed to a major US label. On the show, I thought he had an amazing sense of theatricality and showmanship, with the pipes to go along with it. Unfortunately, Hedley is just another faux pop-punk band who have achieved quite a bit of fame in Canada (not sure how they're doing south of the border), but it's not my thing at all. IMO, his talent's being wasted.

One of the highlights of that season was on Lightfoot night, when the 6 remaining finalists did a group cover of his Canadian Railroad Trilogy, with each of them playing their instruments. It was chill-inducing.

I've never heard of them, which might answer your question.

Just looking for the Canadian Railroad Trilogy performance, and I can't find it.

Here's the top 3 though. I'm sure you can guess who's who.



Here's Jacob doing Sundown:



Theresa and Kalan, top 2, doing True Colours:

I love the Hung-Up song, esp the Chus & Ceballos remix.......prob one of the best out there.


But I also wish she released Forbidden Love, I would have been really interested in remixes for that one!
