- Before we met each other in connection with the program, I had only met him a single time. It was to the children's song contest, where he was host, and I had to play drums. I was totally starstruck and also got pictures taken with him and all. It's a little funny to think about now, telling the 25-year-old am totally taken by Haydar grinning to Ekstra Bladet.

I have never gone to education, but I have instead practiced and practiced alone in the music room of my elementary school. So I was after school and played, but my parents told that I was to help with homework, she explains.

While both Jacob Riising and am totally taken by Haydar is brand new in the 'Voice Junior'-context, facing two well-known coaches back to the program. Both Joey Moe and Wafande is back in the judge - and coachstolen, and it leaves one empty seat for a new one.

the Choice has fallen on the former 'X Factor'judge and 'All Together Now'-team captain Mette Lindberg.

- I am quite game to find and guide the new young sangstjerner and take a seat in the bright red leather chair between Joey and Wafande. We very much look forward to meeting lots of talented children and young people - and by the way, if you haven't signed up for the casting yet, so you can fortunately still achieve it!
