Last week on Idol was again full of successfull songs choises - modern and fitting contestants excellent. Level was equally high (even/especially for those who weren't my personal favorites) so it was hard to guess who will leave the show this time.
Minnah Karlsson was singing Donkeyboy's "Ambitions" that was just made for her voice but needed a bit more of Minnah's unlimited energy. Otherwise Daniel Norberg's performance turned to bee weaker than his previous ones as Andreas Johnson's "Glorious" is too complicated song that not anyone can fight with. Alice Hagenbrant chose Kelly Clarkson "Breakaway" and it was her completely best performance on Idol since audition. Andreas Weise presented Robbie Williams's "Feel" very strong vocally but a bit too tragic and static. Can anyone imagine The Knife on Idol? Can actually someone properly perform The Knife's song like "Heartbeats" live? Now I know that Linnea Henriksson can anything and this was her another performance that you enjoy from the first till the last second. Amazing voice and artistic craziness is unbelievable combination that Linnea manages to show by different side in every show. Linda Varg this time stopped experiments and performed in format that she came to on Idol with. Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris" could easily be her own song. Olle Hedberg performed Oskar Linnros' "Från och med Du" and it was another performance not worse than original version. Elin Blom cover of Pink's "I Don’t Believe You" was a bit too calm and a bit too happy. Jay Smith performed Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box", vocally perfectly but I need more expression and life from Jay on the stage. Last performance was from Geir Rönning his version of Toto's "Rosanna" was as professionally high as always.
Finally two who collected the least amount of voices were Minnah and Alice, after duel Minnah left competition but in a few days Alice announced that she can't stay anymore on Idol and can't get joy of it so she wanted to go away, Minnah was taken back and will perform again in next show with theme The Beatles.
