Canadian Idol is a reality television show on the Canadian television network CTV, based on the popular British show Pop Idol and its American counterpart American Idol.

The show is a competition to find the best young singer in Canada, and was hosted by Ben Mulroney.

Jon Dore was the "roving reporter" for the first three seasons (appearing in comedy skits throughout the show).

Elena Juatco (a season 2 contestant) assumed the role for season four, Dave Kerr had the role in season five and Jully Black in season six.

The show begins with a cross-Canada tour in which singers audition in front of four judges: Jake Gold, Sass Jordan, Zack Werner, and Farley Flex.

Eventually the performers are narrowed down to 10 finalists (11 in season one due to a near-tie), with each competitor performing live.

Viewers have two hours following the broadcast of the show to phone in their votes for their favourite competitor.

On the following night's episode (live again), the competitor with the fewest votes is sent home.
