Canada’s Got Talent coming to Citytv

From a media release:

NEW CANADIAN SERIES CANADA’S GOT TALENT

  • Citytv and Insight Productions to produce and broadcast Canadian version of hit international Got Talent franchise celebrating the unique talents of the nation

Citytv today announced plans for Canada’s Got Talent, the Canadian version of the hit Got Talent franchise, from Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia. Co-produced by Rogers and Insight Productions, Canada’s Got Talent will be broadcast across Canada in Spring 2012 on Citytv. The format is licensed by FremantleMedia globally.

Canada now joins more than 40 countries including America, Germany, and the UK as markets with original Got Talent productions.

Rogers Media will leverage all of its platforms (television, radio, publishing, digital, and wireless), resources and talent, to produce, promote and broadcast the new Canadian series to reach Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

With no age limit and no act too obscure, Canada’s Got Talent will embark on a nationwide search for Canada’s favourite performer, celebrating the diverse and eclectic homegrown talent from across the country. Much more than a singing or dancing competition, Canada’s Got Talent will showcase the top acts from magicians to jugglers, contortionists to fire eaters, singers and dancers – anything goes. Top acts will compete to impress an expert panel of judges to move on to the next round. The Canadian version will follow the format of the British series that launched in 2007 and discovered stars like Susan Boyle and Paul Potts.

Further announcements for Canada’s Got Talent, including host, judging panel and the nationwide audition process, will be revealed shortly.

Canada’s Got Talent is executive produced by John Brunton and Barbara Bowlby for Insight Production Company Ltd.

    These are 3 of the songs he put on youtube and 2 of them are his original own music and lyrics and the other song is a familiar rock song, PLEASE do look into this and please allow him to perform on canada’s got talent when it comes to television if you agree with me, either contact me by e-mail at hankman1984@yahoo.com

  7. im only 12 years old my im from ontario canada bowmanville me and my freinds want to come on this show and addition it will be a life changeng exsperiance we will sing our favorite songs and dance at the same time and with this money we will say half will go to us and the other half will go to the animal shelter and sickn kids hospital i think we could be on this show

  8. omg, i cant believe it, my dream actually might come true, might…………..but still YAY!!

  9. You have no idea how long I have waited for a chance like this. I’m very happy that this has finally come to our corner of the woods and can’t wait until auditions begin.

  10. I am undecided to send my 9 year old she is taking professional piano and singing lesson for 3 years and excells at this, but the publicity is what I worry about, am I alone on this.

  11. How does the process work? Does everyone get to audition or is it a lottery style audition with only those getting to audition whose numbers are called? Is there a limit as to how many can audition per city?

  12. I”m a 13 year old boy I’ve never had singing classes but that’s what I want to do. I’m not looking to be the next Justin bieber but I just want a chance to do what I love most. I really hope I get the chance to audition. Does anyone know were the second round takes place like in America they go to Hollywood. Anyways EXCITED!!

  13. OHHEMGHEEE ! I am So Exciteed For This ! I caannt Waiit thiis has been my dream for like Eveeer ! <3 ;D

  14. omg i really wanna adition (dancin with my bestie) but we’ve both nevr had lessons…..is it worth it?

  15. I want to try out for singing! They come to my city.
    Problem is, I record my singing and play it back, and I don’t think I’m exactly the best, but I’m not the worst, either…
    Please help, everyone. Should I go for it?

  16. Wow, Im super excited! I think my dance group might audition in a few years. It would be an amazing experience. Who are the judges?

  17. I’m 10 years old and ive been dancing recreationaly since i was 6 and ive been dancing competitively since I was 7 or 8 and I think I should do it but i’m sort of nevious because ive only infront of 560 people not whole entire world! Should I do it or not?

  18. I’m 10 years old and i’ m thinking of singing. The thing is ive never acually infront of alot of people well the only people ive sang infront of were 2 of my friends and my mom hears me but when i sang infront of my friends one of them said I inspired her to start to practice singing more and my other friend said to do canada’s got talent because apparently i’m amazing but I dont believe :( Should I do it or not?

    1. I honestly think you should
      if its something you really enjoy doing …
      then do it and do it big hun! Im gunna audition and honestly ive never sang infront of anyone but i believe in my self and u should believe in ur self too !

        1. I’ll be watching you on tv !! Go and win !! I hope you do ! You have so much spirit and already I can see you deserve to win !! <3 good luck !!!!!!

  19. OMG It’s about time. Time to stop EXPORTING OUR TALENT and start HARVESTING it.

    BTW: found this little gem over on the CGT Facebook some guy posted, looks interesting and worth a look. A magician or pyshic or whatever has predicted the winner http://www.gottalentwinner.ca

  20. Well all you girls and boys sound AMAZING but if you do sighn up you have to wait till you get a news letter that saysz canadas’s got talent on it im still waiting for mine soo hope too see you alll there AND im 12 years old turning 13 and always wanted to sing on tv and i BET im am going to see all of you amazing singers and dancers!!!!

  21. I think this is a very positive move made by John Brunton and Barbara Bowlby for Insight Production Company Ltd., towards the Canadian population

    There will not be any age restrictions, correct?

    Will there be Canada’s Got Talent auditions in each Canadian capital city?

    Will there be a specific direct link to a webcam audition site on the Canada’s Got Talent website?

    Will there be an open selection of song choice, for the webcam audition;so each person auditioning can sing a song of personal choice, which each is comfortable with, for the audition?

    Will there be a specific direct link site for all scheduled auditions (municipal location(s)), date(s), time(s) and name of building(s) the auditions are to be held in?

    Will there be a specific direct link to a
    “Contact Us” site, which will provide all contact information concerning civic address, toll free number(s) and email address(es) for general comments, voting, remark(s) for judge(s), show suggestions and/or feedback?

    Will there be an individual direct link to email listing and contact information for each judge, where fans can email a specific judge and find out the credential(s) of each judge?
    Credentials such as years in business, what music fields, performing arts, talent agency(ies), recording studio(s) and/or booking agency(ies) each is involved with.
