Bwhaha the kid that won the Finnish American Idol sang Don't Talk to Strangers. I'm kinda curious to see how bad it is. Marco does a fantastic job of covering Dio so I am sure he did a bang up job on the numbers he sang on. Dunno most of the other guys. Always happy to see Dio being honored.

:lol: I just know him as the singer from Amoral, who are a great band, and he did a great job. All of the singers were superb.

I have to agree, he has vastly improved since his time on Finnish Idol. He did a very nice job on Don't Talk to Strangers (my favorite Dio song, so I'm picky). IMO the guy who sang Heaven and Hell (who is he? What band is he with?) just absolutely killed it. Stellar job. Marco was good but I've heard him do better. I'm hoping someone posts his rendition of Stargazers though.

As noted above, that's J. Ahola. He doesn't really do much. Northern Kings with Marco et al, and local Finnish stuff.

I think the guy who did Die Young was also awesome. Really, they were all good. It was a great night :D

You will find if you search around that almost every singer/guitarist who played has done, or currently does, something local with the main guitar player Erkka Korhonen, who put the whole gig together.
