Did he say no?

According to this article in Aftonbladet today, Salem was one of the artists who turned down the chance to appear in TV4's hit new show "Så Mycket Bättre” in which a group of artists take turns to sing each other's songs every week. (The article also claims that Tomas Ledin, Titiyo and Charlotte Perrelli also turned down the show).

I don't know if there is any truth in this article, but it would have been very interesting to see Salem in this show, singing other artists' songs and hearing their versions of his. Of course Salem's versions would be så mycket bättre :)))

According to another article ( "Salem Al Fakir was to be the eighth participant"... so maybe he said yes initially, and then changed his mind - if so, maybe because of his leisure or maybe because of his autumn tour?

I guess the timing was all wrong, coming between the end of a long summer tour and the autumn tour starting. He needed to get some rest. But it makes me wonder if we might yet see him in a future series...?

By the way Fredrik, are you going to the Debaser Slussen gig next week?

Unfortunately I won't be in town on sunday - I'm going back to Falun this weekend to participate in a folk music happening, and to celebrate my birthday. I'm more hopeful about the Uppsala dates =)
