Rob Van Winkle wants you to know that “Canada Sings” is not just another “American Idol” wannabe. Vanilla Ice, joins Jann Arden and Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier as judges on “Canada Sings,” which launches Aug. 3 on Global.
“We all know the impact ‘American Idol’ has had all over the world but this is a completely different show, very heartfelt,” says Van Winkle. “To see some of these people get over their personal hurdles, it’s very inspiring and uplifting.”
While it seems like there is a different star search show launching every other week on TV, Canadians can’t seem to get enough of them.
