Ohhh.. we have to wait so long! I hope that new song and singer will be worth such long waiting, otherwise Nightwish will be the biggest letdown in my life...

The mystery goes on...
Yes we all hope that the new singer will be as good as Tarja... IMO, she will be "different", not a copy of Tarja...

Tarja was good for the band, but she was becoming too much of a diva, as stated in the letter Tuomas and the others wrote. The new singer will breathe life into the band, IMO, and signify a new change. It won't be the same, but they'll still be as good, maybe even better.

HYPE HYPE! Tarja returns as a singer, just a pr trick But seriously, why look for a new singer when they have Marco?

I think it would be better not to just have Marco as singer.
The mixture of a male and a female voice fitted nicely in Nightwish.
I do agree that the new singer is probably not a copy of Tarja.
Better not I would say.

The biggest thing that I am waiting on is what style the new singer will sing. Will Nightwish go in a new direction and choose a extreme female singer? Or will they stick with the same female classic/opera singer that made them stick out? Will the singer even be female at all? Tune in May 30th to find out.
