Tarja & Jyrki 69 duet for charity

I know that it seems like there are news only about Tarja lately but I couldn't resist to put this one on here. Tarja and Jyrki Linnankivi from the band 69 Eyes made a duet for Unicef. Actually it's Tarja's Underneath song. Buy Underneath  Tonight they performed it together on Idols Tekee Hyvää on Finnish TV.
I am sorry to say this but I absolutely don't like the duet. This guy sounds so bad. He doesn't fit in the song IMO. Now you're going to kill me for what I am about to write now but I don't even like the way Tarja sang this song tonight. I mean during her gigs she sings this song better and I found her performance affected. (Couldn't find better word) It could be the fact that she was on TV and it was a duet IDK or something esle.

The best thing I can say about this performance is that I love Tarja's outfit. Otherwise, that Jyrki guy sounds very odd indeed. Tarja sounds OK, but it seems that this lacks the emotion I'm used to hearing in this album.

I agree with you, Lizzie. I don't like this duet at all and I find her performance so "unnatural". Her movements, I don't know! as for the guy was so emotionless when singing.

I love this song live (I don't like the studio version much though) but this wasn't the case.

I don't think that any song from WLB would sound with the guy ok. I read how great they were, that Jyrki adds something special to the song but honestly I can imagine better voice maybe even female voice.

About the outfit. She wears this one on her gigs and since the first time I saw it I didn't like it. Especially the top but yesterday I noticed that the skirt is black & white lol.
