Recap of first Idol auditions

Auditions of new Idol's season are on its way and seems like public has started to note their favorites from the first day as songs covered by some candidates are already climbing iTunes-chart more than successfully and quite rightfully in my opinion, let's check some of them.
First of example is Jamilla Idris who came with her friend dressed like siamese twins obviously just to have some fun and though Jamilla didn't get it serious at all she sounded pretty awesome, jury asked her to perform seriously alone and girl sounded and looked so good that finally jury was convinced, this girl should have another chance.

Another great discovery of audition is Janine Nyman who presented Skunk Anansie's "Weak" and I guess it has sounded even better than Marie Picasso's cover.

Charming Frida Östergren who unfortunately can't move without wheelchair impressed jury with her touching performance Ane Brun's cover of "Big In Japan" demonstrating beatiful voice and great contact with listeners.

Rock-guy Jimmy Claeson who has already tried audition before but having no success finally has broken through with Bon Jovi's cover of "Everyday".

Olle Hedberg who due to presentation was homeless baker living on his own boat (that turned to be channel's fake) presented Blackstreet's "No Diggity" and Modjo's "Lady" with very nice intonation, huge passion and artistic charm.

Two surprises came from Finland. First one was 47-years old Geir Rönning who presented at Eurovision-2005 for Finland and decided to try auditions, jury didn't have anything against and being impressed by Geir's voice gave him a gold ticket.

And another Finnish surprise was Elin Blom vocalist of Finnish rock-band Sister Twister who also tried to get to Eurovision from Finland year before. Girl conquered jury with her star appearance, beautiful voice and charming attitude.

Oh and can I not to mention Irina Bagley who participated with tribute to Michael Jackson in webbjoker contest year before? Unfortunately this song hasn't conquered hearts of MF lovers but it didn't happen with hearts of Idol jury too, however it was not less than fantastic!

But seems like the hugest success was reached by Alice Hagenbrandt who was found by Anders Bagge coming to her own gymnasium being impressed by received record with her. Alice has performed Regina Spektor's "Samson" and personally I've got a winner feeling watching this girl with Kelly Clarkson'n passion, I won't be surprised if it will be Top-3. Currently "Samson" is in Top-10 of Swedish iTunes.
