Mats Meguenni - NORWAY (Bergen) / POLAND (Cracow)

The very first edition of Polish "X Factor" was inaugurated by Mats' performance. He is 23-year-old Norwegian who has been living in Poland for 4 years. His Polish girlfriend taught him our national language, which is very challenging for foreigners, moreover he studies medicine here - and we all know how difficult faculty of medicine is... It would be enough to impress me, however this is supposed to be about music. Fortunately he's got everything it takes also in this case. It would be hard for him not to gain audience admiration with all his positive features, including most important - great voice. He had female member of jury (Maja Sablewska) in his pocket by dedicating her song "Angels", he found common language with Czesław Mozil - Polish / Danish singer ('Czesław Śpiewa', 'Tesco Value'), even most severe judge (Kuba Wojewódzki) took to him. As a result Mats heard 3 times "TAK" (which means "yes" in Polish, not "thank you") and he got to the next level. I hope there will be a lot of more opportunities to hear his voice... For now I encourage to watch his first performance.
