I don't mean to be insensitive but is that a boy or a girl? I've never heard that song before but it sounded like it was in English.

LOL. I understand that you are confused. It is a boy! And he's had a different hair color each week on the show.. Special guy.. But I do like his voice! The song is called "Lost" and is bz the Dutch artist Anouk. I've never heard of it before either. I just thought you'd like to see who won in Norway

Funny how in every country I've heard this show is broadcast (US, England, and now Norway), it's always a singer who wins whereas in France, both seasons were won by a dancer...

and here he is on Ellen... http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=N3KIk0yyQ48

Although, I guess he kinda is a singer... But, I'm sorry, I can't sing like that with my mouth open, let alone closed, lol... I wish I could see him in person!

I was not trying to yell when I said ventriloquist, just trying to emphasize how cool I thoguht that was. I'm just really really tired, so it might have come out wrong.

You can look them up on YouTube, it's really fun to see the winners from all the different countries!

And BTW, Cecile, I think the first French winner, Salah, is absolutely amazing!!! In Norway, the 2nd place was a 7-year old boy doing hula hoops, and the 3rd place was a 12-year old female singer... No dancers..
