OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - A terror suspect who appeared on the TV show “Canadian Idol” has made a brief court appearance.

Dr. Khurram Syed Sher, 28, is charged with conspiracy to facilitate terrorist activity. Police say they seized 50 circuit boards intended for use in remotely detonated bombs. Two other men arrested appeared in court Thursday.

Sher appeared on the singing competition reality show in 2008 singing a comical version of Avril Lavigne's “Complicated,” complete with dance moves that included a moonwalk.

The bearded father of three, a pathologist in Ontario, appeared nervous during his Friday court appearance, where he was ordered to return Sept. 1 via video feed.

Police say they moved in on the Canadian men to prevent them from sending money to terror groups in Afghanistan.
