Are you confused by that smattering of Swedish verbiage? I had to do a little research myself in order to get the full breadth of what was going on in the below footage. Let's dive in!
Dansbandskampen is an entertainment program in Sweden, much like our very own American Idol. The contest aims to bring dance band culture into the mainstream media light of the Scandinavian public. Acts are voted for and are booted off or continue on in the competition thanks to the popular vote.
On a recent episode, one of the faring participants, Titanix, took the insanely catchy Mando Diao track, Dance With Somebody, and "disco-ed" it up. Watch them cover it live now.
What'd you think? Are they worthy of the phone-in vote? I think it's quite catchy!
Mando Diao are on tour in Europe through December 12. Dates here.
