Idol Sweden 2011 - Moa Lignell and Amanda Fondell

I watched Idol Sweden 2011 and 2 singers have captured my attention: Moa Lignell and Amanda Fondell. There were more than 2 singers that performed very well, though...

This post is about they and their evolution. I will start with my favourites and later with the season's winner.

idol sweden 2011 25 November, 2011 - "Carry You Home" (James Blunt)
idol sweden 2 December, 2011 - "Torn" (Natalie Imbruglia)
idol sweden 2011 2 December, 2011 - "Wherever You Will Go" (The Calling)

Unfortunately after the last round (2 December, 2011) she was eliminated. I understand the jury's reason: they have congratulated her for how she has performed (voice, songs) but have criticized her for her scenic (non)movement. So they've expected not only to perform well but also to make a show like all those international artists.

My opinion is that she did well and she will grow as an artist in the following years, with or without 'scenic circus'. On the other hand Amanda Fondell have performed very well and she has dominated the stage all the time (in fact I felt all the time that she behave like the queen of the stage, she's a innate star).

Now, let's see the winner.
