Video: Tarja Turunen Watches Fan YouTube Covers
MetalSucks has been having a blast recently showing YouTube fan covers to musicians of note — to date, we’ve done ’em with Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), John 5 (Rob Zombie, ex-Marilyn Manson), Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, Slash), Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Creed), Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon, Dave Davidson (Revocation), Dave Sanchez and Reece Scruggs (Havok) and Polyphia’s Tim Henson. But if we do say so ourselves, this latest installment, starring the great Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish), might be our best one yet.
All the credit, of course, goes to Tarja. We were truly unprepared for just how witty the acclaimed vocalist would be. Furthermore, she offered actual constructive criticism and advice to the fans who so bravely filmed themselves attempted to fill her shoes (or hold her mic, such as the case may be)! And as if that wasn’t enough, at one point, she sang. She basically shattered all the glass in the room, but we were too much in awe of her to be upset. In this day and age of auto-tune abuse, it’s great to know that Tarja is the real deal. This. Lady. Has. PIPES.
Watch below. You’ll be glad ya did! And don’t forget to check out Tarja’s new live album, Act II, out now on earMUSIC. You can get it here.
