– Hi. – How are you?
– We’re fine, thanks, how are you? – I’m fine. It would mean a lot to me to make it through to Idol,
because I want to see how far my music can go. – What are you going to play? – I’m going to play Soldier by Gavin DeGraw, in my own way. – This is going to be exciting, go for it. – Well, that was easy for you, Kevin. – Do you score goals just as easy?
– Yeah. – Oh, that’s humble! – Sometimes, I’m a central midfielder, so… – Can I just say something? It isn’t very practical to look like a rock star if
you’re on the pitch playing football, right? A bit clumpsy running around with platform shoes and what have you, isn’t it. Well, looking at it the other way, it’s really not all that fun

us is really cool. But are you prepared to quit football? But are you prepared to quit football? Quit football? I would like to combine the two, if possible? How are you going to pull that off this fall, then? – I don’t know. – In my opinion,. you should say good-bye to GIF Sundsvall. You should
do it right here, in front of the entire tv audience. – You could do that, because you just earned yourself a golden ticket. – Thank you very much. Kevin Walker was absolutely the most obvious that
Norrland had to offer this year. There is something about him that feels like “aaah”. We’re welcoming Kevin to the final auditions in Stockholm, Idol 2013. Thanks!
See you there! Well done!
