In what I consider very surprising news, Global TV has announced that they’ve renewed Canada Sings for a second season.

No really, they did.  Like seriously.  I’m totally not lying to you.

The one-hour original series aired to little fan-fare late this summer, it challenged Canadian workplaces to form glee clubs  and compete workplace Glee clubs, the winner eventually got to donate the prize money to the charity of choice.

While I wasn’t really a fan of the show, I liked the completely random selection of judges which included, Jann Arden, Pierre Bouvier (of the band Simple Plan) and Vanilla Ice, all of whom will be back for round two.  The show’s first season was won by Eric Hamber Secondary School as “The Edutones”, and they got to donate $10,000 to the BC Children Hospital

Question: How do all of these teams get two months off of work? 

The show’s renewal goes to show that there’s no such thing as a sure thing, even when that sure thing is cancelation.

So now that I’ve come to terms with the impending season of Canada Sings, it’s time to talk casting.  The show is currently on the look-out for offices that want to compete.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 24, 2011 at 5 pm, so if you think your office has what it takes, click here to apply.

  1. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. RE: “… 2 months off work”

    I used to the the same thing, too, until I joined a glee team for this second season. The truth is that there is barely any time off. There were definite days when we had to take time off: dress rehearsal day & day of the show’s taping. Yet, in the weeks involved during and after the bootcamp with the coaches. We were ALL working. The schedule for the Coaches’ week had to be tweaked. As for after our time with them, it was a matter of juggling our so-called “free time” to get together and practice.
    It was hectic and busy and frustrating at time, but som much fun and worthwhile for promoting and giving to all the charities involved.
