CTV Congratulates 2008 Canadian Idol Champ Theo Tams!!
Toronto, ON (September 11, 2008)
On the heels of the star-studded, confetti-covered season finale last night, CTV congratulates Theo Tams as the 2008 Canadian Idol champion. Tams, a 23-year-old student from Lethbridge, AB, received the majority of the four million plus votes cast across Canada on Monday night.
A total of 1.8 million viewers watched at 9:53 p.m. as host Ben Mulroney announced that Tams would become Canada’s sixth Idol. More than 3.7 million Canadians watched some part of the broadcast.
Tams’ professional music career launches today, with his new single, “Sing,” playing on radio stations nationally and available for purchase on iTunes.ca. An upcoming cross-country tour with his fellow Top 3 competitors Mitch MacDonald and Drew Wright launches November 9 in Fredericton with tickets sales booming for the 26-city tour since they went on sale last night.
Following a jam-packed day of more than five dozen post-Idol interviews, the newly-minted SONY BMG MUSIC (Canada) artist will head home to celebrate with family and friends in Alberta before he continues to make his mark on the Canadian music industry.
