Canadian singer Nicolina Bozzo continues to blow away the judges on American Idol and is getting closer and closer to winning.

It's a dream that's all the more realistic after her Disney-themed performance on Sunday night, which left the judges and the audience amazed.

For the show's Disney-inspired night, Bozzo dressed up as the sea witch Ursula from The Little Mermaid to perform a rendition of the song "Poor Unfortunate Souls."

Her performance not only gave us some faith that a Canadian might actually be the next American Idol but also received a bunch of positive comments and praise from the judges.

"That was incredible," said Katy Perry, adding that it "was so good it was scary."

"That was a performance," added Lionel Ritchie.

This isn't Bozzo's only performance to make an impact — many videos of her performances on YouTube have garnered nearly half a million views or more.

Her audition clip has amassed over 2 million views. And her most recent Disney-inspired song has already gotten almost half a million views in just two days.

Bozzo, an 18-year-old student currently living in Toronto, has found herself in the show's top seven finalists.

However, she's not the only person with ties to the True North on the show.

Other contestants from Canada this season include Cameron Whitcomb and Leah Marlene, who was born in Canada but grew up in the U.S.

If you want to see if a fellow Canuck takes home the big prize, you can catch the show on Sundays and Mondays on ABC or CityTV.
