Canadian Idol 5 Auditions

As American Idol makes its long-awaited return, CTV announced today further details about the upcoming cross-country, musician-friendly search for the next Canadian Idol. In addition to releasing audition venue information, the network also confirmed today that the tour will now begin Feb. 3-4 in Vancouver, one week later than previously announced, allowing prospective competitors additional time to prepare for the auditions. With the 10-city audition tour now kicking off in less than three weeks on the West coast, full details about how, where and when to audition are now available on the Canadian Idol website at

As previously announced, for the first time in North America competitors can audition while playing musical instruments. Like last year, the 2007 Canadian Idol “Easy-Access” tour makes it easier than ever to audition. There is no need to line up as competitors can arrive any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on each day of the auditions. As well, almost all of the auditions are scheduled on weekends and most of the auditions will be held at malls.

The auditions will be held at the following venues (all information subject to change):

Auditions for Canadian Idol are open to all Canadians between the ages of 16 and 28 (inclusive) as of February 1, 2007. Prospective competitors are encouraged to visit the Canadian Idol website,, where they can download and complete a Regional Release Form which is required to audition (Release Forms will also be available at the auditions).

Featuring host Ben Mulroney and judges Farley Flex, Jake Gold, Sass Jordan and Zack Werner, Season 5 of Canadian Idol returns to CTV this June, building on the success of the series’ fourth season. After a record 12,000 auditions kicked off the fourth edition of the series, Season 4 ended with an astonishing 36.4 million votes cast by viewers – more than one for every man, woman and child in the country. Season 4 reached 55 per cent of the English Canadian population, meaning that one out of every two people in the country watched some part of the series last summer.

    Nothing going on worth mentioning. I’ve just been letting everything happen without me these days. Today was a total loss. Not much on my mind recently.

    I haven’t been up to anything today. I’ve more or less been doing nothing to speak of. More or less not much notable going on today. That’s how it is.
