Here's video from this year's Swedish "Idol" show, where Jay Smith performs Metallica's "Enter Sandman".

Sweden and Finland have way cooler stuff on TV...a few years ago, Ari Koivunen won Finnish "Idol" singing Iron Maiden and other metal songs.  He's released a couple metal albums now and has joined the band Amoral. He's one of Finland's biggest recording artists.

And we get whatever their name was from last year's "American Idol".

Crap.
