Okay, I admit it — I’m liking this new Canada’s Got Talent way more than I thought I might.
The level of talent this spring is truly impressive. Take Tuesday’s Golden Buzzer winner, 49-year-old Jeanick Fournier from Chicoutimi, QC. Mom to two adopted boys living with Downs Syndrome, the palliative care attendant took the stage and owned this competition. She belted out a song with passion and power and an octive range that woud rival that of her fellow Quebec native, Celine Dion.
Everybody at Fallsview went nuts, including the four judges and host Lindsay Ell, who slammed her hand down on the Golden buzzer.
There were several other worthy acts on Tuesday night’s third episode of the series, including a pair of mentalists who performed some jaw-dropping tricks. Read my full recap here at the about.rogers page. I’ll be filing a new recap each week throughout the run of the series.
Canada’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Citytv, with catch-up available on Rogers Ignite TV, Citytv.com and Citytv Now.
