Magne ended up with four contestants for his team in last night’s episode of The Voice. One of them, Monika Blomeid, almost moved him to tears with her version of Adele’s “Someone Like You”.
“I am stunned, this is not what I had expected. We hear a lot of good vocalists on this show, but you are in a class of your own”, Magne told her after the performance.
The blind auditions of Magne’s four new team members can be seen here:
I’m not sure if the whole episode will be online for free this time – it might have been just for the premiere.
“I’m not very fond of the way talents are being developed these days, where they can sing opera one night and soul the next. I’m looking for a voice that sounds unique and has a powerful expression that I can believe in.
(…) If a voice gives me goosebumps, I’m not interested to know what else it can do. Then I just want for that person to continue doing the same thing that gives me that feeling. And that’s what I think is a problem with most talent shows today, they don’t focus enough on supporting that uniqueness. I always judge music by what I hear and not what I see”, Magne told magazine Her og Nå this week.
