Winner of the last Idol season Amanda Fondell has become #1 this week with final song "All This Way" she's got her victory in Globen with and her compilation of Idol covers enters album chart at #6 today.
Runnner-up of this season Robin Stjernberg isn't forgotten though, Robin being signed by Lionheart is releasing his own Idol-compilation "My Versions" on January 4th and the first single from it will be Beyonce's cover "Halo" - track that we'd absolutely choose if we had to before listening to sampler or Jessie J's "Who You are", both are huge emotional modern ballads showing full range of Robin's voice. But now when we get sampler I think Jason Derulo's "In My Head" could be a better choice to sell in Robin's performance, really fresh and not promoted enough to be directly felt like Idol-cover, "You Raise Me Up" has a nice spiritual atmosphere nicely lightened with Robin's pop-vocal, "Love Is Gone" sounds like a version that I could easily imagine released by David Guetta without help of Chris Willis. Here I should come back to thoughts about Alexander Bard's note regarding Robin's potential to get a huge demand among world DJs, this guy has amazing vocal for club-records and we're really interested if this will be his after-Idol path. Right after "My Versions" release Robin will be working on his non-cover album whole spring.
