Floor Jansen in Nightwish should be something to behold and to hear!!!! what will they do next? get another operatic singer? get another one like Annette? go on holiday after the tour and not think about it for two years?Another chapter of the Nightwish story has ended today. Nightwish and Anette Olzon have decided to part company, in mutual understanding, for the good of all parties involved.
In recent times it has become increasingly obvious that the direction and the needs of the band were in conflict, and this has led to a division from which we cannot recover.
Nightwish has no intention of cancelling any upcoming shows, and as a result we have decided to bring in a substitute vocalist starting in Seattle 1.10.2012. Her name is Floor Jansen from The Netherlands (ex-After Forever, ReVamp), and she has graciously stepped in to help us complete the Imaginaerum world tour.
We are all strongly committed to this journey, this vehicle of spirit, and we are sure that this will lead to a brighter future for everyone.
We forever remain excited about the adventures to come, and we are extremely proud of the two beautiful albums and the wonderful shows we shared together.

I find it also weird that they don't really say a bit more, and that they let her go one gig after she returned after an hospitalization.... but hey, at least they didn't let her find a letter that was saying "You're a cunt and your husband is an asshole, you're out. PS: All the internet knows it"
