Last week 11 participants of Idol were finally selected. 8 of them were chosen through daily public selections from bunch of 6 artists, 4 were chosen as jury's wildcards and 1 were added by public voting from those who haven't made the final.
So let's see who's went through. I've already told you about guy with powerfull rock-voice Jay Smith, charm-guy Andreas Weise, rock-chick Linda Varg, Scandinavian Eurovision-star Geir Rönning, early favorite Alice Hagenbrant and (I should mark it!) one of my own biggest faves - Minnah Karlsson. But the last of four pre-selections has also given us very special artist Linnea Henriksson - charming girl with unique manner of singing that makes me think about her as about new Amanda Jenssen or Tove Styrke. One of the biggest favorites Olle Hedberg haven't qualified though but he did it later when public could choose one of unqualified artists and seems like currently he together with Linnea and Jay is included in the list of favorites by polls and odds, last Friday Olle performed amazing version of Coldplay's The Scientist that easily can be now Idol's classic. Talking about jury's wildcards - other places in final were given to Daniel Norberg - guy with very beautiful voice that he perfectly controls skilfully switching from falsetto to rock-growl, Elin Blom - Finnish girl with charming accent and amazing star-attitude on the stage, Sassa Bodensjö - girl with loud growl voice and ultra-sweet Madeleine Finck-Björgen who unfortunately wasn't chosen by viewers together with country-guy Chris Andersen. Already tomorrow we'll get first big Friday show that's gonna be undoubtfully hot as now I can say that final bunch of participants in common is very exciting!
