Help me out, Goon, is this a show that's only on CBC or something? If it's down in the 48, what venue is it on? I think I recall it being on the last time I was up your way (although the Scott's Tournement of Hearts was on, so that's the only think that was on TV that week), but I wouldn't have watched it anyway.
Nashville Star is similar to American Idol in that a contestant gets voted out each week until there's only one, who gets a record contract. Differences exist, in that the contestants play instruments, and also perform original material.
I missed last night's show so I will have to look for the one of the many re-broadcasts on USA.
What I like about the show is that all of the contestants are brought out each week ready to perform - they called to perform one at a time until there is one left and that person is the one who goes home and doesn't get to perform. No drawn out results show.
I thought Creed's camera time was the highlight of the show. On a side note, who was the brunette female working in the Stamford branch? It's driving me crazy as to where I've seen her before. And yes, I've Googled & IMDBed, with no luck.
