In the news: Canadian Idol better than American Idol?

Tara Merrin of Sun Media interviews Canadian Idol judge Zack Werner, who’s bashing American Idol:

  • ‘Idol’ judge attacks American rival
    “He says Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson don’t know a thing about finding unique talent and this season’s finalists proved that. ‘No matter what kind of props anybody wants to give Melinda Doolittle when it came down to it in America, they had a Justin Timberlake knock-off, who looks like he’s 40, and Jordin Sparks who is just a professional pageant kid … who knows so little about artistry,’ says the Canadian Idol judge.”
