NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon and Swedish hard rockers MUSTASCH performed a medley of five songs which were nominated in the "Song Of The Year" category during last night's (January 19) "P3 Guld" (Swedish radio's annual music awards) live awards ceremony broadcast from the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden. Video of the performance can be viewed below.
Olzon previously stated about the event: "The gala is an award gala where our biggest public radio channel, P3, gives away awards to best song, best album, best artist etc.
"I am excited and I look so forward to show myself to the Swedish people.
"We [NIGHTWISH] haven't done so many performances in my own country, even though we have sold gold with [the latest NIGHTWISH album] 'Dark Passion Play', so this is a nice thing for me to do."
Anette Olzon recently spent time in Stockholm, Sweden creating songs for her upcoming solo album with Swedish producers Stefan Örn and Johan Glössner.
Olzon's forthcoming solo album will be co-produced by Swedish producer/songwriter Anders Bagge, who has previously worked with MADONNA, CELINE DION, JANET JACKSON and JESSICA SIMPSON, among others. He is also one of judges on the Swedish TV talent competition "Idol" and a producer of the TV series "Made in Sweden".
Olzon performed on August 13, 2009 with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra at a special concert in Stockholm, Sweden as part of the Stockholms Kulturfestival (Stockholm's Culture Festival).
