For those who are unfamiliar Instant Star
was a Canadian show that starred Alexz Johnson
(Jude Harrison) as a winner of an American Idol-like contest. It follows how her life changes after that happens with her relationships, the press, working with producers and her record label, G Major. It is quite an interesting and serious look at what goes behind the scenes, how that you can get more fame and notoriety, but you're still the same person. Finding yourself and knowing yourself are also big elements of this great show.
I also want to add these are MY top 5 episodes. Anyone who watched Instant Star will surely comment on their favorites. The show recently scored a big victory coming back in syndication to Latin America. I hope more networks will pick this show up as well since it has a lot of culturally important things to say in a world where we have American Idol and X-Factor.
