Idol Darin-themed episode: the performances

The long-awaited Darin-themed episode of Idol  is now over. The show started with the performance of "Lovekiller" made by the four contestants together with Darin, then each contestant sang their own version of a song by the "king of Swedish pop" , quoting what Warner Music Sweden wrote on Instagram some minutes before the show started. However, this is probably not the only time this year that Darin appears on Idol. In fact, he might be there again on the grand final on December 5th , together with Loreen and Danny, as announced by Aftonbladet yesterday. But nothing has been confirmed yet. Our photos from the show are up on our Facebook page . Watch all the performances from last night right below or, alternatively, watch the entire show by clicking on this link .
