Wait, before you go…
Canadian terror plot suspect Khurram Syed Sher tried out for a spot on “Canadian Idol” in 2008, telling the judges he came to Canada from Pakistan in 2005 and performing Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” when the judges voted for that over a Hilary Duff song.
Sher, who is actually a native Canadian, sings in a Pakistani accent while performing a series of strained dance moves, one of which is reminiscent of ice skating form. Which make sense when at the end of the performance a judge asks Sher if he considered being a comedian rather than a singer.
“Not really, I like hockey,” Sher replies.
