That’s why Oh Land said no to ‘X Factor’: Jumping into a whole new challenge

[display-posts orderby="comment_count"]

After three years as a judge in ‘X Factor’, the singer Oh Land has chosen to focus on herself and her musical career again. And that means, among other things, that she has to sing in a language that she is not completely comfortable with.

This is what Oh Land, which has the middle name Nanna Øland Fabricius, tells BT

“I’m rehearsing a role for a performance at the Opera, which will run in the spring, where I will be singing in German, so there I am in the process of really diving into my school German,” says 36-year-old Oh Country revealing that she is certainly not a star for German.

“I practice and it goes forward. It’s a huge challenge, «she says and says that she is also working on several other projects – including writing new songs.

Oh Land managed to be a judge in ‘X Factor’ for three seasons before she stopped in the spring. And although she may well miss the young, new artists, she is still happy with her decision.

»It came out very logically that I got an opportunity to do this performance at the Opera, which I have to be part of, which overlapped in period. It came as a natural opportunity to do something else, “she says and continues:

‘It’s great to do’ X Factor ‘, and it’s very easy to want to do it over and over and over again, but it’s also a huge time consuming thing, and it’s important to me as a creative musician and as a creative artist not to set aside so much time that I am not allowed to get inspiration and work on my own, ”she says.

For Oh land, it means a lot to be allowed to work as an artist as well:

“That’s what drives me 100 percent, and I have always known that,” says Oh Land, who is currently working on the performance ‘The Snow Queen’ at Tivoli, where she has worked with another artist – namely Queen Margrethe.

Here Oh Land has composed the music for the ballet. And it’s a task she’s enjoyed.

“For me, it’s a huge freedom to be allowed to create music that lives in a different universe that tells a different story than my personal girlfriend’s worries, but that you work with music that tells an overall story in a universe, which I can dive completely into without having to use myself as a reference, ”she says.

The ballet performance The Snow Queen can be seen in Tivoli from the 1st to the 23rd of December.
