Imagine you're holding the mic

with both hands.

Bend your knees.

Both knees. That's good.

Imagine there's a desert over there.

Sing into the horizon.


It starts in the heart.

Rock 'n' roll.

Rule number one:

Don't think. Go with the flow.

I'm starving. Do we have food? Huh?


Next up is contestant number four:

Ville Hietalahti.

Ville, how old are you?


What is it like to be Taisto's son?

I don't really think about it.

I'm just me.

I'm sure your friends at school

know who your dad is,... do they come and ask

how he's doing?

Do they ask

for your dad's autograph?

Dad's new record is now available

wherever fine music is sold.

Uh-huh... That's cool.

And it'll be cool when you sing...

...the next song,

which we all know so well.

Ville Hietalahti and "Where

Have All the Wild Horses Gone?"

Where have all the wild horses gone?

Where is the gypsy woman

who danced and sang?

Freedom can even bewitch one

who rules a vast empire

Where is the gypsy

who played guitar at the campfire?

Where is the gypsy woman...


Good job.

I haven't started yet.

Oh. What's on your mind?

You know what? You need a woman.

- Excuse me? - You have

that longing look on your face.

- It's been a while since the last time.

- What?

- Oh, nothing.

- Hi!

- Ville.

- Yeah?

Your dad... Taisto...

Tell him Leena said "hi."

You know how much I love his music.

- Mom, let's go.

- Yeah yeah.

I rexommend you start

taking it really easy now.

Try not to get too excited or

overly depressed about anything.

You want to be like Jimi Hendrix

or Burt Bacharach?

It's not...



You have some sort of a plan?

You're here now.

I mean...

...what are you doing here?

Don't be so analytical.

Live in the moment for once

and let fate guide you...

...and see what happens.

Can you wash these?

- You can have it.

- Thanks.

Gotta respect a guy

who makes a movie with a monkey...

...and then bexomes the president.

The man was right:

A great man.

I'll always have this with me.

- Bedtime for Bonzo.

- What?

That's the name of the movie

where he plays with the monkey.

He made it

after he said no to Casablanca.


Put a suit on and we'll hit the bar.

I was thinking of staying in.

Reading a book or watching a film.

Let's wrestle!

Could you get up? - This isn't fun

if you don't make an effort.

- Get up.

- Ville.

When I cast off my mortal xoil,

promise me...

...that you'll throw my ashes

to the winds. Ooh, Taisto.

No coffin.

No monuments or statues. - I don't

think you have to worry about that.

- Promise me you'll throw

my ashes to the winds. - Okay.

Want to go out for a drink?

Next up is contestant number four...

- How's it going?

- Great.


Now that you've drenched

your throats,...'s time to sing some more.

Next we'll travel to France.


Next up is number 42. Number 42.

Ma'am, don't be afraid.

This is it. All or nothing.

All pressure is on one man.

And he fails.

The Finn fails,

even though his style is alright.

However, it fails in practice...




- Hey.

- Hi.

- Are you awake?

- Yeah.

Err. Could I...

...borrow your bed?

- What?

You see, I got this...

...thing going on.

- Uh-huh.

- So would it be okay if I put

this blanket over you? - What?

So that I wouldn't have to go

into lengthy explanations...

...about who the gloomy-looking guy

on the xouch is.



Put your head on the pillow.

It's late.

She wanted to see my snake
