Rarely has seen Thomas Culture hesitate so much.
In Friday's final '5 Chair Challenge' should the Quality of the +23-category slimmed down to five participants. Among those who went far, was 43-year-old Gina Michaells, there were people in the hall stand up and clap in excitement.
But in fact 'X Factor' is not the first television program Gina Michaells makes up in. On the contrary. She is a seasoned talent show-runner, as both have put up in 'Norway's got Talent', 'Denmark has Talent' and even 'All Together Now' on Channel 5, where she reached the final.
'Norway's got Talent' has been a long time ago. But I do it, because we are very musical in my family. Also the children. Some sing, others play music. I hope that there is someone in the music industry who discover, that I may sing and might want to help me, so I get a chance in the field of music in Denmark. It is my dream, says Gina Michaells.
She is now on to bootcampen, which is the last stop before liveshowsene. It happened at a hanging hair, where Thomas Culture had to leave the room, because he had to collect himself and find out whether Gina should have a space or not. He hesitated, as you rarely have seen him before.
- I have to go in a different direction than my two colleagues do. I will have to send.... fuck... and it's really, really not easy. It is really not easy, said Thomas Culture, before he sent the participant Kasper out of the program and gave Gina his chair.

Meanwhile, the drama played out, was Gina and flourished on stage.
- of course I was wildly nervous as he left the room. I didn't know whether I should be standing, put me down or go out. It was a critical situation for me, because I don't know if I would get a seat. I risked the smoke out. I was so nervous that I didn't know what I should do by myself. I was shaking all over, says Gina Michaells.
- What were you thinking about that Culture just left the room and let you stand up there?
- I do not actually know what I was thinking. I can't remember so much from it. Maybe because I was so nervous, laughs she.
the Nervousness, however, was only worse when she got the chair and could see the one competitor after another to enter the scene in an attempt to steal a chair.
I was actually more nervous. I was real nervous, until it ended, she says.
Gina has appeared as a singer in several asian countries, where she sang in hotels, and she took the side to Greenland, where she worked as a maid during the day and singer at a hotel in the evening. It was here that she met her Danish husband.
Now he can sit and follow Gina Michaells Friday after Friday. How it goes her further in the program can be seen on Fridays on TV2.
