  1. I think having her as an interval act, or part of an interval act, is an excellent idea.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Troy just posted on Facebook that he was involved in recording readings by (quite accomplished) actress Geraldine James in London today... So what do you think? Nightwish related or nah? Silly thought perhaps, but what else could he be working on? He was also awestruck by her, apparently.

    The Floor thread

    Can't say I agree fully, but I get it. I don't think one should undermine her role in Nightwish being part of her growth, but they would make a huge mistake to restrict her creatively. Especially these days.

    The Floor thread

    @Baki Same, really. And when Floor got emotional in last night's episode, I got emotional with/for her... I know I'm not the only one. A lot has changed since 2012 when I was really skeptical of this new (although temporary at the time) singer that I had never heard of, in my favorite band (until Showtime, Storytime changed that). Through her talent and her words she has just elevated herself to a position I almost can't find words to explain. Then again, the same goes for her band. All this positive exposure warms my heart and soul, and I can't stress that enough.

    The Floor thread

    They must have had weeks, if not months, of preparation though. Choosing songs, arranging and rehearsing them. No way everything is done within that four-day window. Anyway, I watched the episode and the reasons behind all the choices made sense, I guess. I still think it's lazy to choose songs that just happened to be a part of the artist's upbringing (They Dance Alone, Hotel California, Sound of Silence - which was only chosen because of Disturbed's cover) unless said song has huge meaning to them. No, props to the three who actually chose a Floor song. Even if Nemo is a bit of a stretch.

    The Floor thread

    So what's the reasoning behind the lazy choices? That's the most interesting question, and I guess it's being unraveled at this moment. Videos have started dropping on Youtube!

    HAHAHA! I'm so lost when it comes to this show...! It is Friday today! When it was first gonna start airing, I was off by a whole month.

    The Floor thread

    They have been super quick to upload to Youtube the past weeks, so what's holding them this time...? Eager for disappointment here.

    The Floor and Henk duet that was meant to be!

    The Floor thread

    Floor wanted to introduce the Netherlands to her music, but maybe this plan will backfire and she will now go on and become the number one Dutch latin pop singer, both on charts and YouTube, and do operas on the side. Sorry, Nightwish.

    The Floor thread

    If that's true then it's a big disappointment. They had a literal treasure trove to choose from - with plenty of songs not being that obscure - yet they chose to dig in other people's yards. At least Floor finally gets the well deserved attention.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Can't find! There was a mistake then, because the "Band version" was on the album earlier (on Spotify). A shame that this Extra Raw disc isn't available. That version of You And I was, in fact, more well done. Pun intended. Why does she do this? Putting superior alternative versions on bonus discs... Same with No Bitter End and Eagle Eye on The Brightest Void.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Agreed! I liked the previous version better.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I just played In The Raw on Spotify, and I could have sworn You And I had been replaced by an alternative version. I first noticed something was off when the drums didn't come in, and there was a whole new orchestration towards the end. Then it hit me that maybe it's the other way around...? This is the album version? Is there some serious Mandela effect going on, or did they put up an alternative version by mistake - which has since been corrected? Because I know You And I used to have drums.

    The Marco thread

    Ow, that's a looong wait. On the other hand, I have a feeling the original will still be superior to the English version.
