From Eric Kohanik of the Ottawa Citizen:

  • YTV series turns spotlight on talented Canadian youngsters
    “OK, so we’ve already got Canadian Idol. And, yes, there’s America’s Got Talent. There’s Dance Machine and So You Think You Can Dance, too.

So, hey, what’s wrong with adding yet one more entry to the overcrowded arena of talent shows on TV this summer?” Read more.

From Brian of Zap2it:

  • No ‘parade of horror’ for these pop-star wannabes

The series, premiering Friday, July 18, on YTV, follows the multicity audition and audience-voting format. But that’s where the similarity to shows like “Canadian Idol” ends, says producer Jameel Bharmal.” Read more.
