According to ESCtoday.com, LORDI frontman Mr. Lordi will be one of the judges and mentors on the Finnish version of the reality TV format “Clash Of The Choirs” (“Kuorosota”). The singer’s choir comes from his hometown Rovaniemi.
“Kuorosota” is a music competition between several choirs, put together and led by successful Finnish singers/musicians in their home region. The celebrities take on the role of the choir leader and support their choir in the struggle for a perfect performance. They also act as members of the jury and evaluate the performances of the other competing choirs. TV viewers vote and determine the winner, and each week another choir gets voted off. The prize is in the form of a 40,000-euro contribution to a charity active in the artist’s hometown.
The series will air on the Finnish channel 4 starting next month.
Previous hard rock/metal judges on “Kuorosota” have included Timo Kotipelto (STRATOVARIUS), Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH, TAROT) and Olli Herman (RECKLESS LOVE, CRASHDIET).
