According to the National Post, Canadian Idol is taking a little break. According to Zach Werner, who is a judge on the show, he doesn't think it's a break. He thinks it's forever.
"I dunno what planet you all live on but on my planet resting means the show is off the air full stop. I know nothing else"
I'm not sure what the word dunno means. I guess it could be some new kind of donut at Tim Horton's. In case you are thinking to yourself that Zach just said "dunno" and the reporter just wrote it down like that, then you would be wrong. Zach actually typed out the word on his Facebook page. I'm also not sure which planet he thinks we live on because honestly, if I'm living on another planet and I am still forced to watch any Idol competition than honestly, it is a pretty crappy planet. Despite Zach's prospect of unemployment and the crushing of thousands of dreams for Canadian singers, I actually think the Idol shows should take a break. American Idol's ratings were way down last year. They won't take a break though because it is still the number one show. Instead they just keep trying to tinker with the format and the judges to try and get all the viewers back. Take it off the air for a year. Let the viewers miss it and then you will get them back.
Apparently the downfall of Idol was the huge popularity of So You Think You Can Dance which I have learned is the best time to invade Canada because the entire country is sitting in front of their televisions watching it. Seriously, you think the streets of Paris are empty in August, go hang out on a Canadian street when that show is on. Hell, even the people in Quebec watch the show. Since the producers of the show are the same as Idol, they said, "hey, lets throw all our money at the show people are actually watching, eh." Makes sense. So, for all you aspiring Canadian singers looking to become famous, you will either have to learn how to dance, romance Anne Murray and get her to sing a duet, or start a cover band of Loverboy.
