Week Clue
2 I am Viking. You're curious who I am, I'm curious too, and that's the thing about a viking. We are a curious kind. We are explorers, we forge our own way. We discover answers, as in my career, throughout this competition, I'll be looking for a voice. Tonight, I'm battling it out with Seahorse. Good luck Seahorse from me. Vi-King.
4 I strode into my last performance, and emerged victorious from a battle with a seahorse. The panel tried to guess who I was, but by my beard, they haven't got a clue. Perhaps this evening, they will say one guess closer to who I am. Being a viking, you live by your instincts, from a young early age my natural instincts gave rise to something that would later forge my career, and it was this something that has left my footprints across great countries outside of my own. Doing my own thing, underlies everything, including breaking the rules. Vikings are not down by any chains and sometimes, success can be found when I break something. Tonight, the battle calls for me once more.
5 Last time, my fate swung in the balance, but the odds were in my favour. But one thing's for sure, this panel has no clue as to who I am. As for my identity, I'm never gonna give it up. Vikings might have been around for millennia, but my career has been one of billions. It was over a billion people who watched me do my thing. As a viking, I rely on tools I was born with and tools I can create. Take my sword for example, which was forged in the silver mines of my homeland, to serve me well in my journey. Most people head out into the world, seeking gold, but the gold I look for is creative fulfilment. Though as precious metals go, steel has proved rather useful in my career. Tonight, I strike out on my next adventure.
6 Last time, was magical, but perhaps the panel have aimed in the wrong direction with their guesses. Will tonight be tonight, they finally see the true person behind the Viking. Vikings are a nomadic sort, because we have a hunger for adventure, to us there is always that land beyond the horizon. People think vikings are all about the conquering, about the pillaging and the taking. They're not often the heroes of the tale, well this viking has written his own tale. I don't care much for trinkets and I don't feed off accolades, It feels better to give than to take. I cannot take what you cannot give. Tonight I'm swapping my sword for my voice, and I'm ready to do battle once more.
