Rallying for Jean-Marc

The mother of Star Academie finalist Jean-Marc Couture talked to Jonna about the do-or-die weekend he's facing. More than 3,000 people showed up at a rally in Campbellton Thursday night in support of the Val D'Amour native. The competition is akin to "American Idol" for the francophone set. Couture goes up against Quebec performer Sophia Pelletier in Sunday's final. Star Academie is competition/reality show previously won by Wilfred LeBouthillier of Tracadie-Sheila.
