Sørlendingene Guro Elen Woie (19), Andre Aamås (31) and Oline Meland (23) were on stage at The Voice on Friday night. The two of them advanced to the next round of the competition.
Oslo: Woie performed “Gone” by singer Lianne La Havas during the “blind audition” on The Voice on TV 2.
Two singing competition mentors threw themselves at the button, indicating that they wanted to move the artist to the next round.
Guru, very well done. You have a very strong presence and a raw “attitude” when you do that. Youssef Ould Maryam said: Dig it.
– It rarely costs
Ina Woldsen was also thrilled with Woie’s performance.
When someone comes here and sings something they think – that is, my guru – to be 19 and be able to express it that way, it is rarely expensive. I dug it up, said Ina Wroldsen.
The 19-year-old eventually chose Wroldsen to be his mentor.
But there were many Southerners in the fight Friday night. Also on stage were Olin Meland (23 years old) from Eiken and Andre Aamos (31 years old), who lives in Venice.
Heart rate rises
Aamås, who is originally from Lesund, sang “Carry me over” by High Red. Guides Espen Lind, Youssef Ould Mariam, and Tom «Matoma», Straight Lagergren, operated their chairs.
– Now I feel a little high pulse, I get a little nervous before I sell my “pitch” – I want you too. There is something totally magical in your voice, you can play it through a song like this, because it’s tough. It is very difficult. I have to work with you, said Tom “Matoma” Stræte Lagergren.
Matuma fulfilled his wish when Aamås chose him as his mentor in the competition.
Olin Milan sang “Jesus, Take the Wheel” by Carrie Underwood. Despite the good feedback, she did not advance in the competition.
– You have a kind of country “buzz” in your voice. You sing the song just right where the original is. And you’re so honest about it that I felt like maybe the performance was great, but it’s a bit impersonal somehow. Espen Lind said that your singing itself is very beautiful.
