Malcolm triumphs!

After months of deliberating, through the process of eliminating 15,000 hopefuls down to one soul survivor, Canadian Idol is over. And contrary to the signs created in Gary Beals's hometown of Halifax reading "Harry Potter's Going Down," Ryan Malcolm managed to come out on top. His mix of Billy Joel and "W8r Boi" qualities appealed to the majority of the 3.3 million voters who called in Monday night.

The Canadian Idol finale was definitely more diverse than the American version, namely because it was actually good. The performances were well choreographed, while every member was able to maintain their individuality. Viewers were entertained by more than just singing: they learned Candida could fly and Mikey could break dance (sort of). Sass Jordan's insanity was confirmed with the comment "I have nothing but thoughts in this pretty little head," while Jenny and Richie's odd talents stood out more than ever, but were definitely hilarious to hear.

Gary and Ryan's rendition of Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" was likely far better than anything Clay and Ruben could perform together. And though Ryan was seemingly indifferent when his success was announced, Billy Klippert's tears wrapped up the emotional, entertaining end to Canadian Idol.
