Sorry, I really should have posted this earlier, but I didn't even think about it until late last night. The Top 10 Idols were on Canada AM this morning, as part of the CTV/Canada AM Block Party held outside their studios in Agincourt (Toronto). I went to it!
It was really great, although there was a lot of standing around. The Idols performed together, and Craig and Eva both performed separately (a couple of times). They had the Canadian Idol "trading cards" there for free, so everyone could get autographs, and I spoke to all of them.
I'm editor for both Rob and Tyler, so I really wanted to talk to them. Or say something to them, as it wasn't really a conversation or anything! But I told Rob that I thought he was a great singer and I'd really enjoyed him while he was on the show, and he seemed to genuinely mean it when he said thank you. I told Tyler that I'd been hoping he'd win the competition, and he laughed and said he'd hoped the same thing!
They all seemed really friendly and happy to be there. Some of them were late showing up because of traffic, but once there, immediately got into the swing of things. It was a good time... don't know if anyone saw Canada AM, but it was much better being there. I taped it (cause I knew there'd be stuff that I'd miss, and I was right) and when I watched the tape after getting back home, the sound in the group song just wasn't good, but it was a great song when I heard it live! So the tv show didn't do them justice.
Anyway, I wished both Eva and Craig luck for Sunday, although the votes are in. They said that it's really close this year... less than a 3% difference between the two!
