One thing that I recently discovered was how much better Swedish Idol is than American Idol/X factor etc etc. Most of the performances are in English, so there is no language barrier and it's amazing how many good singers there are considering the population of Sweden! The contestants' choice of music is usually better, most of them can at least play the guitar and the judges are less obnoxious and seem to be really into their music. Here are a few samples:-

^ Yeah! That was the first one I watched. The ones above were the ones I just watched and liked. Jay Smith won Swedish Idol 2010 (his version of Enter Sandman is amazing), Olle Hedberg was 3rd and Linda Eriksson is beautiful Here's another good one:

They're taught English from primary school level all the way to graduation and they're strongly influenced by American culture - tv, movies, music etc etc. It definitely influenced their english-speaking accent.

It's also important to remember that many of the early settlers in the American mid-west were scandinavian. I find it interesting to think that they may have been the progenitors of folk and country music.

Thanks for the info. I find it interesting that Swedish Idol is totally in English. How does the native audience react to it?

I mean in the Indian subcontinent we are taught English from the primary level all the way to graduation. But one can't expect Indian Idol or Closeup 1 to be entirely in English.

^^ The comments from the judges, the MC, the reaction of the fans and the participants - it's all in Swedish. They just perform English songs - probably because it helps increase their international appeal and there are quite a few great Nordic rocks bands as well. Also, Swedish is a Germanic language like English so there are bound to be similarities which aid in picking up the language

[An irrelevant aside: I wonder if the American accent owes some antecedence to the Scandinivian immigrants in the mid-west. After all, the standard is the Ohio accent. /sidles off to feed my linguistic anthropology hobby]

^ Given it's your hobby Boss, have you read "Speak: A Short History of Languages" by Tore Janson (coincidentally a Swedish linguist) Linguistic anthropology is not a real hobby for me but I still found the book to be fascinating.

Part of the soundtrack to one of the best films of the last decade (2002-2012), City of God. Incredibly infectious. If you've watched the movie, it's Ned (the bus ticket collector/great shot) who sings in this song.

I love that movie and I love Seu Jorge in it. I also love his David Bowie covers in Portuguese in The Life Aquatic. When two perfect things mix.

Yes! Seu Jorge is absolutely amazing. I remember reading a review which said Bowie himself loved the Portuguese versions of the song. I have a couple of his CDs as well.

If you liked Seu Jorge, you might also like this - it's a Portuguese cover of Damien Rice's "The Blower's Daughter" sung by Ana Carolina and Seu Jorge. It was #1 on the Billboards in Brazil for a while:
