    Sharon did participate in the Belgium version of this show and she was wonderful: And Anneke would be amazing as well. However my secret hope is that next year Marcela Bovio will participate. She is a very good singer who imho deserves a larger audience.

    You know what happens to people who do oppose Henk Poort: (warning: video does contain violence. OK, staged, but still...)

    In the show it was revealed that Henk agreed to sing the Phantom with Floor under one condition: that he would also be allowed to sing it together with Nightwish. Assume it will only happen once during their concert in Amsterdam 2020, but still a nice bonus I think.

    Floor jansen interview in Dutch newspaper NRC: https://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2019/10/10/floor-jansen-heeft-de-bal-eindelijk-aan-het-rollen-a3976316 "Q: Now I hear the word Song Festival buzz everywhere. Floor: "Yes, that's how it goes. Only one person has to shout that I have to go there, people will ask about it in interviews and before you know it I will read: "Floor Jansen wants to participate in the Songfestival." Well, Floor Jansen never said that. I think it's honorable that people are considering me to represent the Netherlands, but I'm in Nightwish and a new album is coming out in the spring and I'm going to prepare a world tour. So if it's possible, I wouldn't know."

    Tim Akkerman wrote the song "Winner" for his disabled brother. One reactor to Floor's cover has himself cerebral palsey, so the song touched him personally. Tim Akkerman did send afterwards a personal thank you note to the reactor. It might be a small thing, but I think it is a lovely gesture.

    This was indeed an excellent episode, also think that Rolf's episode was outstanding. On today's episode, Henk's "Vincent" had this fragile beauty that really touched me: And then Floor's performance with "Winner", wonderful! For me Floor and Henk are the outstanding performers, don't get me wrong, the other singers are also good, but Floor and Henk are really special. And they will sing next episode together, won't they?

    Currently Floor's cover of shallow has 666.666 views, so how about an Iron Maiden cover?

    7 years ago Floor joined Nightwish on tour and now with Beste Zangers the mainstream media in the Netherlands also seem to notice. Well, more or less, this is what RTL Boulevard wrote after last episode: Translated: " Viewers of Best Singers did not know what they heard when Floor Jansen, known from the band Within Temptation, ... " Indeed I did not know, last time I checked Within Temptation did have a wonderful singer, but I don't think it was Floor. Friesch Dagblad (= Frisian Newspaper) does interview international chess Master and 11 times Frisian champion Migchiel de Jong. When asked about his favorite music, the chess master answers "Smashing Pumpkins", however when the interviewer ask him when was the last time that he cried his answer is: "Hearing Floor Jansen, singer of Nightwish, with her performance of Shallow in the television program De beste Zangers of last Saturday."

    Please note that uncle Henk is famous for his jokes and pranks. So maybe he will....

    The Rock Academy that Floor does refer to is the Academy in Tilburg. However the Rock Academy didn't offer the vocal lessons that Floor was looking for. In a later stage a Master class was given by a teacher from the nearby Conservatory and this was what Floor was looking for. This teacher invited Floor to follow his vocal lessons at the Conservatory in addition to her regular lessons at the Rock Academy. Floor's vocal teacher at the Tilburg Conservatory: https://fontys.nl/Studeren/Opleidingen/Muziek-Muziektheater-voltijd/Docenten/Edward-Hoepelman.htm After completing the Rock Academy Floor studied Music Teatre and Opera at the Tilburg Conservatory. Obvious Floor is very talented, but she also worked very hard to develop her skills and make the most of her talent. BTW: did you know that Floor not only sings but has other musical talents as well: http://www.metal-ways.com/album/21/img/8 http://www.metal-ways.com/img--804/ayreon-stairway-to-heaven-utrecht-16.html

    In case Floor does loose her job, then maybe she could consider a career as singer. Did recently overhear a conversation between two elder ladies: "Who is that women with all these tatoo's? She's good, she should make a CD!"
