Vanilla Ice sees a lot of ‘serious, untapped’ talent on ‘Canada Sings’





Rob Van Winkle wants you to know that “Canada Sings” is not just another “American Idol” wannabe.┬áVanilla 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.
