Canadian Idol 2 kicks off on June 1 with three consecutive nights of footage from the original auditions. From the thousands of idol hopefuls 155 were chosen to move on to the next level of the competition. The breakdown of the 155 contestants chosen are:

Newfoundland – 9
Prince Edward Island – 1
Nova Scotia –11
New Brunswick – 2
Quebec – 18
Ontario – 59
Manitoba – 14
Saskatchewan – 8
Alberta – 19
British Columbia –14

Week two will see these 155 cut to 32 finalists. Then it will become Canada's turn to choose who will join Ryan Malcolm as a Canadian Idol.

Farley Flex, Jake Gold, Sass Jordan, and Zack Werner will return as Canadian Idol judges; while Ben Mulroney will return to host the show.

Canadian Idol can be seen on CTV.
