What’s the quickest (but not quite the most reliable way) to check if Canadians love SYTYCDC?
You check Facebook.
Granted it’s cliché but, according to the show’s fan webpage, the nation thinks Canadians are “bringing it”. For the most part, fans are impressed with what Toronto, Vancouver and Halifax had to offer.
But would Montreal and Calgary measure up to the high expectations?
In last night’s final cross country audition, judges Jean Marc Genereux, Tré Armstrong and Dan Karaty got settled into their seats. First up: Louis-Philippe Deslauriers, 23, from Richelieu, QC.
Beyond his super cool French name, does Louise-Phillippe have what it takes to possibly become Canada’s favourite dancer? After an impressive and charismatic ballroom routine, Louise-Phillippe receives his super cool ticket to the Finals.
But cutie Nicolas Archambault, 23, is not as lucky. Although the judges believe he performs a powerful solo, they (and I) want to see more and the Montreal citizen is sent to Blake McGrath’s gruelling choreography. (Spoiler: Nicolas proves he has what it takes to handle McGrath’s Choreography and is awarded the ticket to Toronto. Yay him!)
After more dancers were granted the ticket to the finales, others, in the words of host Leah Miller, were “shaking things up — but not in a good way.”
But Katie Lee was about to change all that. In her first audition ever (yes, EVER), the 25-year-old Toronto native amazes the judges with her hip hop moves and Katie is thrilled to be given the ticket to the Finals.
Although quite in awe (obsessed is a better word) with Dan, Jennifer St. Pierre does not have what it takes to move on with her contemporary solo. While some accept their defeat with grace, others like to look like pure swaggering jerks.
Tiger Son is Montreal’s prime example.
Tiger’s breaking moves get the judges excited, but they aren’t convinced Tiger’s routine had enough dancing to send him through. Tiger gets defensive and argues with the judges — stating he is by far the most superior dancer on the show. Jean Marc and Dan decide to give Tiger a second chance and send him to Choreography. Lucky for him, Tiger proves he has the moves and the judges give him his ticket — with a warning about his attitude.
In Calgary, Ashley Irvin inspires and brings guest judge Sean Cheesman to tears over her performance. She, of course, is given her Boarding Pass to Toronto.
Eileen “DJ Dove” Flomata has auditioned already in Vancouver and Halifax. Although not fully convinced the dancer deserves a ticket to Toronto, the judges send Eileen to Choreography — who later receives her sought-after Boarding Pass.
SYTYCDC will return on October 1st for Finals week, where the panel of judges will narrow down the dancers to the Top 20.
I’ll admit that when news first broke that “So You Think You Can Dance,” was coming to Canada, I was a bit apprehensive and ready to be disappointed. Canadian versions of American reality shows have a history of never being as good (ahem, “Canadian Idol”). I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Permanent judge Tre Armstrong, who recently stared in “How She Moves,” and alternating third judge Luther Brown –who choreographed the movie ‘Honey’ with Jessica Alba–were joined at last night’s two hour series premiere by guest judge Mary Murphy — also best known as the “Queen of the Scream” on the U.S. version of the show.
With MuchMusic’s Leah Miller hosting the show, the very first set of auditions kicked off in Toronto. Those who prove they can dance are given a ticket to Toronto while those who the judges believe have potential are asked to stay for choreography. Then, of course, there are those unfortunate performers who lack rhythm, beat and technique altogether and their dreams of winning the prize of $100 000 and the title of Canada’s first ever “favourite dancer” are squashed.
But for those who do have a chance at winning the golden prize must first prove that they are worthy. For the most part, Toronto either has really good dancers or the judges just love Torontonians. An hour into the show and only one unlucky contestant was not given the sought after ticket to Toronto.
Some of the best performers of the night were Mongolian refugee Manuel Dos Santos who popped to Classical music(something that neither I nor the judges have seen before) and Jessie Catibog — a hip-hopper who moved to Disco with creativity and finesse.
So while the judges had the necessary experience needed to judge a dance show, could they be as entertaining as their American counter-parts? They gave their advice and even left some words of encouragement to rejected competitors, proving yet another stereotype that Canadian reality show judges are incapable of being mean for no particular reason. Those that were told they were not right for the show bowed their heads, expressed their gratitude, and left the stage. Even Canadian competitors take defeat with grace.
The first rejected, self-nicknamed contestant was ‘Jaguar’ who summed himself up as a ‘wild baby.’ After 15 seconds of his performance, I begged to differ. While entertaining, Jaguar couldn’t dance. His dancing skills were reminiscent and comparable to the singing abilities of William Hung from ‘American Idol.’ Funny to watch but that’s as far as it goes.
Aside from Murphy’s countless declarations of love for Canada, the series premiere showed promise that it might just be better than expected. Although the judges have proven their unwillingness to criticize competitors just for the sake of high ratings, the show has the potential to really entertain those who love the American version.
The audition tour hits Vancouver and Halifax this Sunday, September 14th at 8pm ET on CTV!
Earlier this week, Sony Canada introduced its new Bravia LCD TV. The Bravia features 240Hz high frame rate technology that delivers high quality motion detail, and feature an extremely thin design measuring just 9.9mm, or about the thickness of a CD jewel case.
The new motion technology feature, called Motionflow, allows images to be delivered in great detail and crispness with natural motion. Other picture enhancements include Sony’s Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE), which helps deliver a contrast ratio of 50,000:1, and Bravia Engine 2, Sony’s digital video processor that enhances all incoming cable or satellite signals to match the TV’s 1080p resolution.
Sony will also be releasing its 40-inch diagonal 1920 x 1080p KLV-40ZX1M flat panel LCD monitor. This monitor will also be only 9.9mm deep and weigh approximately 26 pounds. The monitor will also feature a wide colour gamut LED backlight and Sony’s Motionflow technology.
Both of these models will be available by the Holiday season in Canada.
This past week, Sony Canada unveiled three new Walkman series (B, E and S) MP3 players. These new Walkman devices are designed to cater to the specific needs of different kinds of users.
The Walkman S-series provides users with more options for storing MP3 from multiple sources, including many download stores and personal music collections. The S-series Walkman is also the MP3 players with Sony’s unique SensMe Channels function, which automatically creates channels to match the user’s mood. The SensMe Channels function allows the MP3 player to analyze a user’s music collection and suggest channels based on each song’s speed, mood and rhythm.
The E-series Walkman combines high-quality video and audio capabilities to create a device designed for viewing photos and video clips. The B-series Walkman devices connect directly into your PC’s USB port for easy drag and drop file transfers, and features a light that pulses in time with the music when the new bass button is pressed. The B-series also has an FM radio and a voice recorder.
All of Sony’s new Walkman devices will retail between $60 to $200 depending on the model series of the MP3 player.
Rapper M.I.A. may be moving to Montreal when her American visa expires in June.
Because her father was once a soldier in the Sri Lankan terrorist organization Tamil Tigers, she doesn’t expect her visa to be renewed.
“Basically at the moment I can choose between Montreal and London,” she told Baby Baby Baby magzine. “My mum’s like, ‘I want you here!’ I haven’t seen her in, like, forever, so I have to choose between my mum and Montreal.”
She said that she’s been making the most of her final U.S. concerts, and that Kanye West has offered to marry her to keep her in the country.
She was previously barred entrance to the States in 2006.
Oasis is extending their stay in Canada this fall with three other performances.
The band is scheduled to headling the Virgin Festival in Toronto in September. Now, pairing up with Ryan Adams, the band will play Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary in August, just before the festival.
According to their web site, advance tickets to the special shows can be purchased at ticketmaster using the password OASISINET.
Oasis will play in Seattle before flying North. It will be their first live performance together in over two years.
While the best video games feature virtual battles for supremacy, gamers and observers alike bore witness in 2007 to a real battle for hegemony: that between three giants in the home console war?Nintendo’s Wii, Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 – duking it out to sit atop the podium of market shares.
2007 produced innovative games that intertwined the traditional with music, social play and online interaction, relatively untapped territories for the gaming world. Speaking to this year’s success and approval among increasingly diverse audiences, according to NPD Group, an industry-tracking firm, through November 2007 Canadians spent over $1.1-billion on game software, hardware and accessories, with sales up 65% compared to 2006?and the December holiday rush yet to be tallied.
Though gaming hotspots Montreal and Vancouver have been making great games for quite some time, by adding more studios and projects this year, Canada firmly established itself in the top tier of game producers. From Mass Effect, a science fiction epic from Alberta’s BioWare Corp. to Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassin’s Creed, Canadian products are featured on many gamers’ 2007 top-10 lists. Hopefully such a year of growth can be built-upon to yield even more success in 2008.
Racing driver JACQUES VILLENEUVE launched his first rock album on Monday, and the former Formula One ace is hoping it will speed to pole position in the charts.
PRIVATE PARADISE includes FATHER, a tribute to his late father GILLES VILLENEUVE, who died in a racing accident in 1982.
Villeneuve, who used to date Australian singer DANNII MINOGUE, wrote six of the album’s songs himself and the disc features appearances by DIRTY VEGAS star STEVE SMITH and Canadian singer ELY and AMELIE VEILLE.
He says, “Nobody wants to do something like this and for it just to get blasted. Right now when I think career I still think racing.
“Music is what I call my professional hobby. It has to be fun, it has to remain fun.”
The album is available for download online and will be released in Canadian music stores on Tuesday.

It seems, for whatever reason, that hockey will always be Canada’s dominant sport; as such, it demands a certain amount of attention from Canadian media outlets – which is something we non-hoser sports fans have come to accept. However, broadcasters, analysts, and sports writers alike can’t continue to overlook the other major sports; such as basketball.
Generally speaking, the basketball IQ of the Canadian media is terrible, at best. Their hockey-centric tunnel vision is compounded by the fact that this lack of knowledge doesn?t prevent them from sharing uninformed, ignorant opinions with their audiences about basketball.
Those in the know can discern a well-versed hoops-junkie from a hockey analyst who?s out of his element, but unfortunately fair-weather basketball fans are lured in to believing what these ?experts? have to say.
My solution? A modification of the old adage, ?if you don?t have anything informed to say, don?t say anything at all.?
Canadian television programs like Off The Record are problematic as, at some point, the guests must discuss things outside their Neanderthalic Ice Capades world. This is where the problems arise.
Case and point, a few days ago Rob Babcock, GM of the Raptors, was on Off The Record answering loaded questions posed by the host Michael Landsberg, while at the same time being berated by moronic small-talk that, in this context, passes for the majority of the show?s content.
Babcock kept his cool, toeing the company line and answering questions without even a hint of trepidation or anger towards the other guests. Commendable. He even got his own jabs in, most notably a funny dig towards Toronto sports writer and Raptor-hater extraordinaire, Dave Feschuk.
But why continue with the pattern? Surely someone must notice that in a show where basketball and Rob Babcock are the key topics, having more than one knowledgeable basketball mind is a good idea!
Zack Werner and Fred Patterson are the targets of this particular rant. They threw in some player names, some painfully obvious commentary — but nothing that went beyond the surface. Nothing that would lead any informed viewer to believe that these goons have watched more than one or two Raptors games this season (and that is me being nice; I?d be shocked if they have watched even one from start to finish). Yet there they were, arguing with Babcock, a man with more basketball knowledge than either could ever aspire to have; taunting him, telling him to his face that his team sucks, the Vince Carter trade was bad, he?s not handling the roster properly, his drafting is suspect, etc etc.
All of that might be accurate, but who are they to say? Where could they have possibly obtained this knowledge if they don?t follow the team regularly? The answer: from other uninformed sports analysts too busy listening to themselves talk to understand the damage they are doing to basketball in Canada.
This is not to say things are always rosy in Canadian basketball. Usually it?s far from. But I urge the Canadian media to leave the curling to the curlers, leave the hockey to the hosers and, for the love of God, leave the basketball to the ballers. Canada has enough intelligent basketball minds to discuss, analyze and critique the game – we don?t need help from you sub-zero saps.
