EDITORS’ NOTES

Not winning Canadian Idol was probably the best thing that ever happened to singer Jacob Hoggard. After being booted from the show, he reemerged as the frontman for Hedley, a band with a punk attitude and a pop bent. Thanks to their adolescent hijinks (including Hoggard's strong penchant for nudity) and unwavering devotion to their fanbase, the band became hugely popular with the MuchMusic crowd. Although their live concerts always brought their rock heritage to the fore, their Top 40-friendly albums became increasingly slick, 2013's Wild Life being a purely pop effort.
