For Thomas Culture, it is time to relax, after that season 12 of 'the X Factor' ending for a little more than a week ago.
For his participant Kristian Kjærlund contrast, it is time to get down to work and chase a singing career. He went all the way and race with victory in the finaleshowet, which was held in Forum Horsens 12. april.
the 56-year-old Thomas Culture is, however, ready with advice to the talented singer and the remaining participants. And with 11 seasons as the 'X-Factor'-judge and a winning participant in the song contest three times, is it not, therefore, an inexperienced master who gives tips on to this year's 'X Factor'-participants, who now are sent out in reality.
- they must have The courage to say: 'Okay, I was in the 'X Factor', I am not ashamed of it. It was great. But now I try to make a plate, and I would like to be the primus motor in it'.
- They need to show energy. Young people who show energy and commitment, there is no one, who closes the doors for. There is nothing more wonderful than youthful arrogance, he says.

- He dared to come and stand up and say: 'I think I have a thing or two here, can I use it?'. We must all learn. You go in through a door, and when you go out at it again, then you are a different human being.
- I can't remember any time in my life where I have gone in through a door, where I have been a little nervous, but when I have gone out at it again, as it has changed my life. It is it that is so important. That you dare to go out at his own door and into through the doors, says Thomas Culture.
He sees the song contest as an experiment, where the participants will have a unique opportunity to develop their talent at the same time that they show it in front of a large audience.

'the X Factor' had in years 1.2 million viewers on average over the program's 14 shows.
- They are crazy privileged, the young people, they have been given the here opportunity. They can do what they will, but they have tried something, which so few have been able. Not even the professionals are given the opportunity to stand such a place seven Fridays in a row, says Thomas Culture on Live Vogel, Benjamin Rosenbohm and Kristian Kjærlund that went all the way to the final.
Before the final, as his participant then went on to win, had Thomas Culture some simple advice for the three young finalists as they now can take on, in what might become a future singing career.
- To keep his dignity. Do not let it go to your head, but keep a realistic ratio that you would probably end up having to take a public means of transport home, and so one must find out that it really also is a lot of fat.
- So you can sit there and look at other people, and you are out of reality and have stories. So go the hell home and write a song about everything that you imagine is going on in other people's heads on the way home in public transport. So are you in time with an artistic career, he says.
Thomas Culture was in the 2015 mentor of the group Citybois, who got a fourth place, but subsequently has created a musical career that is rarely seen for artists in the Danish version of 'X Factor'.

Soon as the player is married in a sold-out Store Vega, and their last two singles have collectively been played over three million times on Spotify.
in addition to Citybois, he highlights Martin Hedegaard, who won the first season of "X Factor" in 2008, with the Remee as a mentor. The 26-year-old singer has since created his solo album SAVEUS, as he opened the Roskilde Festival's Orange Stage in 2018.
- Citybois is a very good example. It is Martin also. He withdrew from everything for seven years and sat down and nerdy with his things, and then he came out with a shock, and something that was so fat. It takes the time it takes. But it is a task that lies in front of them, says Thomas Culture.
