Waltteri Torikka advances to finals of MTV competition

The many faces of Waltteri Torikka on Finnish MTV
Barihunk Waltteri Torikka is competing on a voice competition called Tähdet, Tähdet (Stars, Stars) on Finnish MTV and this week's challenge is Heavy Metal. So he took some time out with David Coverdale from White Snake to work on his rocker technique. You can watch the video HERE.

Over the weeks he's had to perform a number of different genres, including country, punk, tango, Latin pop and even some opera. He's currently one of the finalists in the competition. You can enjoy his performances below.

Country version of "Ring of Fire":

Punk rock song "Hei hei mitä kuuluu" (Hey, hey, what's up?):

The Finnish Tango "Satumaa" (Fairyland):

Singing "Livin' La Vida Loca":

He even sang an Ozzy Osbourne-esque version of Scarpia!:

You can hear Waltteri Torikka live this month on tour with the Concert Band of the Conscript Band of the Finnish Defence Forces. He's the featured soloist on their Finlandia Tour, which plays April 10th in Mikkeli, April 11th in Tampere, April 13th at the Hyvinkää Church and April 14 in Lahti.
