Idol Phenomenon Around the World (Part 2)

While we mope about the impact of last Sunday, let us review how other countries were swept by the Idol Experience.

First, we look back at Finland's Suomen Idols 2004. This is one of the performances (singing "Eternal Flame") of their first Idol, Hanna Pakarinen, who is currently busy recording her second album.

Next in line is Latin American Idol, which is currently airing its first season. One of its frontliners is Mayre Martinez of Mexico. Here is her rendition of Santana's "Corazon Espinado," which swept the judges off their feet.

Finally, we wanted to congratulate Eva Avila for winning Canadian Idol 4. This was one of her performances during the Finale, a beautiful track called "Wild Horses."

If only our contenders are just as good as them...Sigh...
