Rogers Media announces Canada’s Got Talent, but who will judge?
It seems another American-by-way-of-the-U.K. show is coming to Canada: Rogers Media has announced that Canada’s Got Talent is joining the ranks of Canadian Idol and So You Think You Can Dance Canada next spring, with auditions taking place this fall in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto. We’re fans of the weird and wacky shenanigans that take place on both the British and American versions, but what we’re really wondering is, who is going to judge the competition? See our choices after the jump.
Considering the British version of the show is judged by Simon Cowell, Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff, while the American version boasts alumni such as Regis Philbin and Jerry Springer (and currently features Nick Canon as host with Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne as judges), we’re sure Canada’s Got Talent will find some equally entertaining and sometimes unqualified (Jerry Springer?) celebrities to star on the Canuck incarnation of the program. While we have yet to confirm if he’s big in Germany like the Hoff, we suggest Brampton’s finest, Russell Peters, as host alongside Tom Green, Tommy Chong and Pam Anderson as judges to fill the show’s “What are they doing here?” quota. What we would really like, most of all, is for Celine Dion to grace the show with her heart-pounding enthusiasm. Now that would be great television.
Check out the Canada’s Got Talent website for more information on auditions.

I just hope that the host will not be either Ben Mulroney or
Leah Miller. Surely we can do better than that.
Leah Miller is so bad that I do not watch
So you think you can dance,
Canada – but absolutely love the American version. Surely Canada has someone more like Nick Cannan. Search people, search…..
WHAT ABOUT WILLIAM SHATNER? how funny would he be? Come on Canada — we need SHATNER on CANADA’S GOT TALENT
I’d like to see Jacob Hoggard as a host. He’s Canadian and he’s got talent. (: Plus it’d launch his career into other countries like mad.
Halifax is also holding auditions!
Shatner as host
I think William Shatner would be an amazing host :)
As for Judges:
Zack Werner ( Was a judge of Canadian Idol)
host harland williams
are we kidding here folks!!!
lets get Neil Young, Leslie Neilson, Emannualle Vagier
thats credibility, fun, & sexy all in one!!
oh & Russel Peters as our impeccible & funny host!
i think, tommy chong, avril lavigne, russell peters, celine dion, OR LADY GAGA !!
If you want Canadian History how about Burton Cummings Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot, Getty Lee, Randy Bachman, and as the host Dan Ackroyd or Miss Twain herself
Keep Ben Mulroney out. If he has anything to do with it, I will not watch. I feel he is the one that killed Canadian Idol. He is a poor host. Try even Martin Short. Chevy Chase would also not be a good choice. Try Leslie Nelson, He would be a hoot.
If they managed to get Leslie Neilsen that’d be impressive since he’s dead
I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT HOWIE WOULD LOVE TO DO
CANADA’S GOT TALENT, I ALSO THINK THAT GORDON LIGHTFOOT OR BURTON CUMMINGS WOULD BE GREAT JUDGES.
It’s about time!!!
I always feel that Canada’s biggest export is OUR TALENT! Let’s bring it Canada!!!!
Saw this on the CGT Facebook page. Apparently a magician says he has predicted the winner already… http://www.gottalentwinner.ca
i wont now how is the judge
see you gus at the show
Ok,the only person I want as a judge is Lady Gaga!!! I think Canada would be VERY lucky to have her!! And she actually knows what music is. But for the rest I don’t really care, as long as it’s not stupid people.
Me and my BFF Are going to sing on CGT (Canada’s got talent) In Vancouver and I want Piers Morgan (To make him smile,) Sharon Osbourne ( Because she is Nice,) And Howie Mandel ( because he is awesome.) If you want to see me on T.V, Watch Canada’s got Talent in Vancouver, and our stage name is The Kind Angelz!
P.S I am the taller one.
Jim carrey as host
Celine dion avril lavigne and Simon cowell as judges

shaina twain, howie mandall & JUSTIN BIEBER<3

Jimmy Fallon as host for Canada’s got talent
Celine Dion as female judge
Jim Carrey as first male judge
Dave Mustaine for last judging spot
That would be great because you would have the greatest canadian female singer and The best comedian actor in canada and lastly Dave Mustaine would be great to judge because of how talented of a person he is.

omg i hope its not simon he’s so mean and i just like him i hope its some one nice like haley willams that would be awesome
I do not really care whom is chosen as a judge, so long as it is not Zac Warner!
I have metand worked with him as I was apart of the competition he is now the performance coach if, and had to endure his singing (more like screaming), flirting and poor advice.
He flirts with anything in a skirt and thinks he is the ‘bomb’. Honestly, he is just not that amazing.
He also tells you that you should change most eveything about you.
For example, I should invest in contacts, wear tighter clothing and show some more cleavage and should tease my hair or whatever it was he said.
I don’t think he gives good advice.
So, once again; anyone is cool just NOT ZAC WARNER!
Sorry for the ranting :)
who are the judges i want to now and i want to now now :(
ps. I’m going to be on the show
I like all the choices except William Shattner
Shania Twain,Avril Lavigne, Sarah Mclachlin, Margie Gillis, Alanis Morrisette, Paul Anka,Lady Gaga-judges. Russell Peters,,Martin short -excellent choices
Anne Murry -great singer but boring as hell to watch
Burton commings would be a “Simon” Replica-He’s arrogant
Wouldn’t Celine Dion be amazing on the show!
Ryan Reynolds (?)
They are all great canadians….
auditioning does NOT get you garunteed on the show.
Just thought you should know. Yes they will be video taping with tv cameras and such, but that doesn’t garuntee you a spot on the show. Being 34, I have to read the agreement in detail to make sure I’m covering all my basis and it states that in the agreement.
OMG Jacob Hoggard from Hedley should be a host!!! He is my idol and inspiration!!! I LOVE HIM!!! and I would love to see him there!!! :D <3 <3
i would concider it a honour to be judged by william shattner to boldly go where no singer has gone before
