The Voice, part 2

Now that the season is drawing to a close, I am really pleased that two of my favorite talents are in the finals - Martin Halla (of course!) and Leif Anders Wentzel. On Friday night Martin and Leif Anders sang a song together in the Red Room that was so awesome :-) Will try to figure out how to link directly to the clip so I can add that here.

Anyway a friend of mine in Oslo has bought me a gift card from the Norwegian iTunes store, and I'm like a kid in a candy store, downloading tracks I've never had access to before - and naturally Martin's single 'Take It With Me', which counts as two votes for him towards the finals. [See in iTunes]

It was actually quite simple to set up a foreign iTunes account in order to download the songs, I wish I had known how to do this years ago! Just a few days left until the final show, so be sure to vote for your favorite talent!

Really hoping they broadcast the show in full, and live, like they did for the first episode. We have a bank holiday next Monday so it's possible I'll be out of work early enough on Friday to get home and watch it!

Ok, enough shameless promotion of Magne's talent - I doubt he needs help though, Martin is currently at the top of the iTunes chart and has three other songs in the top 20. Still a lot could change in just a few days, so I'll be crossing my fingers until the end :-)
