America isn’t the only country that adopted the Pop Idol franchise from Britain. There are Idol competitions all over the world. I’ve been having fun following the Finnish Idols competition. Here is my favorite performance so far, Kristian Meurman performing the 70s hit Lapin kesä (Lapland Summer).
UPDATE: I am saddened to discover that all of the videos from that excellent Finnish Idols competition have been scrubbed from the internet.
UPDATE II: Some kind soul has posted the video again, so I’ve linked to the new video. Thanks, kind soul!
