Series / Canadian Idol

Canadian Idol...also known as that show Carly Rae Jepsen was on before Justin Bieber discovered her.

Canadian spin-off the British series Pop Idol, which debuted on the CTV channel in 2003, one year after the launch of American Idol. (This makes it one of the few Idol versions to run alongside another country's version, in tandem with general practices in the Canadian broadcasting industry.) Ran for six years until after the 2008 season, when The Powers That Be announced the show would be taking a hiatus due to the current economic crisis. Needless to say, some fans were a bit upset...
