I’ve recently posted some brilliant videos of Canadian Idol contestants at their best. However, every now and then someone stumbles so spectacularly that it’s worth a second look.
That’s what happened this week when the competition’s golden boy, Jaydee Bixby, attempted to take on Green Day.
Turning this indie anthem into a country ditty was always ambitious. Perhaps with a little more conviction and a lot less twang, Jaydee could have pulled it off. Instead, he delivered the type of car crash performance we rarely see at this stage of the comp.
It’s incredibly bad, but for some reason I just can’t look away.
