OMGOMGOMG! Canadian Idol is finally over! Lovely half-Asian singing sensation from Calgary, Melissa O’Neil, beat Newfie CanRocker Rex Goudie in a hideously long finale. Torontoist thinks Melissa deserves the trophy, much more so than prematurely balding, nerdy-waiter Ryan Malcolm (ew) of Season One and Kalan Porter, who is the Canadian >Clay Aiken. So, we heartily agree with the judges that Melissa is the best Idol ever. Dear Melissa, may you prosper!
Aside, does anyone else think that Benedict Mulroney looks like a young k.d. lang?
Also, Melissa, we love you, but we kind of think your dad is more than just a little bit creepy. Sorry, it’s that stoic Army-guy face, combined with the piercing blue eyes and the pale baldness.
