I think if the runner up prize was touring with the house band, that would be preferable. I think there is much more talent in the house band than in SN. I can't imagine SN lasting past the first album, one shot support tour.
If the top four are Magni, Storm, Lukas, Dilana(as many expect). Who needs SN and who does SN need? Would it be better to finish second and go solo for most of these folks?
I really think Storm stands easily on her own and doesn't need SN and also doesn't really fit SN. Not sure about the others. Magni is very talented but a bit bland, he doesn't seem an ideal fit, but I don't know where he goes on his own. Lukas and Dilana strike me as the best fits.
I can't say I am very excited about SN whoever they finish with. More interested to see what some of these folks do that they have been given more exposure.
