Last Idol show was devoted to 90s and contained some warm nostalgic memories reborn by left 8 contestants.
Daniel Norberg performed "Stone me into the groove" by Atomic Swing that turned be nice but quite forgettable performance not letting Daniel show whole brilliance of his vocal. On the other hand Olle Hedberg was finally in his music niche with guitar in hands and "Wonderwall" from Oasis that felt much better to show his talent. Elin Blom keeps shining with her open and light charisma, this time she performed Britney's "Born to make you happy", probably not her best performance but all her covers are like collected pieces of puzzle from very promising future pop-artist and though Elin doesn't pretend for Top-3 she looks like contestant with big commercial pop-future. Geir Rönning provided very atmospherical performance of Pearl Jam's "Alive". Linnea Henriksson turned back to ballad-way and Sinéad O'Connor's "Nothing compares to you" has become not less touching than her "Hope There Is Someone". Andreas Weise performed again in a bit musical style "Baby I love your way" from Big Mountain - vocally perfect again but still feels like artist that should stay somewhere between bottom and top-3. Jay Smith has arranged experiment this time performing hit of Backstreet Boys "I want it that way", i can't say it sat as good as I expected but still choruses with hardrock vocal sounded very strong. And the last but not the least was Minnah who's made triumphal comeback last week and this time she was not less brilliant with "Everything I do I do it for you" from Bryan Adams, it was full of feelings, vocally strong and really fresh with female vocal so this performance again turned to be one of most viewed videos on site of TV4 during whole week.
Daniel and Geir collected the least count of votes and after duel Daniel has left competition. Theme of next show is Love.
