CBCâ€™s new live weekly musical competition series, COVER ME CANADA, announced that Melanie Morgan Band garnered immunity and was safe from elimination in tonightâ€™s episode. Immunity was granted after the results of Canadian audiencesâ€™ online voting and social media engagement for the bands were tallied. At the conclusion of tonightâ€™s show the COVER ME CANADA judges Jordan Knight (New Kids On The Block), chart-topping R&B sensation Deborah Cox and star-maker manager and record exec Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Black Eyed Peas, Pussycat Dolls), also announced the name of the first eliminated band: GO7.
Even though eliminations are beginning, Canadians have the chance to bring back one band who thought their COVER ME CANADA journey was over. In a one-time vote on October 23, 2011 fans will be asked to put their support behind their favourite eliminated band.
