I don't know if you know but his hit single in Norway was 'She's so High' by Tal Bachman which was again sung EXACTLY like the original. So when people say a great talent won World Idol i say: No, a great mimic won World Idol.
    Hello.... he won because he's the greatest talent, best-looking, best-singing person to ever live.

    Honestly, honey. Give it up.... it's just a show. Not everyone's prefers the same thing. He just won over the most viewers.

    Please stop replying with "But..but it does sound different..." because you are just picking hairs now. Yeah it's not the original song, but what i'm saying is that it wasn't unique. It wasn't anything i've heard before, infact, i've heard it a hundred times before when the songs were big! If Kurt wins World Idol it means so should Tal Bachman and Bono, because thats who he mimics. Like the judges say "We are looking for something unique." Kurt was not it.

    It does not matter. It was not up to the judges, but to the people. And the people decided Kurt was the best - and that's the end of it.

    I think anybody could sound like a mimic if they were doing covers. But, the point is, people enjoy Kurt. That's why he won.

    Qwerky, we get it. You don't like him or his musical style. Apparently, you're in the minority worldwide. No need to get nasty about it.

    Interesting tidbit of information of Kurt's success outside Norway following World Idol: today he is ranked #1 bestseller on Amazon.de. I think E19 has reached it's goal of using World Idol for promotion of the contestants, it seemed like Heinz Winkler's CD was also for sale at Amazon.de. And Kelly's and Will's of course.
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
