One response to “Tonight: Last semifinal in Sweden

  1. And once again a very strong semi-final in Sweden just like the past 3 weeks.

    I hope:

    To the final:

    – Alcazar – Blame it on the disco (Words could not express my love for Alcazar and their music. This is such an amazing song! It is basically “Stay the night” part 2 but that partly makes it even more fantastic. They can’t only sing and dance very well but they are also very sympathetic and with them you’re at least assured of a great and energetic show on stage. They have the total package. And that is very important for Eurovision. I think it’s time for Sweden to finally send Alcazar to Eurovision! They really deserve it!)
    – Anton Ewald – Natural (A very good and very strong song. I find it much better than “Begging” from last year. This song sounds less electronic and more pop and I like that. Two downsides of course we all know he can’t sing very well live and I don’t find him as charismatic as for example Darin, Eric Saade or Oscar Zia).

    To the second chance round:

    – Janet Leon – Hollow (Very good and tight composition. A little better than “Heartstrings” last year. But I doubt whether Janet can handle this live. During the rehearsals she wasn’t singing well and this is a bad omen for tonight.)
    – Josef Johansson – Hela natten (Very strong and impressive ballad.)


    – Ammotrack – Raise your hands (The worst song from this heat. But even then, this song is not really bad because of the high quality of the songs in this semi-final. I.D.A has the better rock song in this semi.)
    – Ellinore Holmer – En himmelsk sang (A beautiful and understated song. But at the rehearsals she sang so out of tune, and that’s a huge turnoff for a ballad like this.)
    – I.D.A – Fight me if you dare (Strong 80’s inspired rock song. Better and stronger than “Raise your hands” by Ammotrack.)
    – Linda Bengtzing – Ta mig (I’m a big Linda Bengtzing fan and I love her songs. I find her 4 previous entries for Melodifestivalen very good and they all were big favorites of mine. But I like this song much less and I don’t think it really suits her style. It’s certainly not a bad song, but I’m a little disappointed with the song choice this year. Maybe try again next time with a better song?)

    I think:

    To the final:

    – Alcazar – Blame it on the disco
    – Anton Ewald – Natural

    To the second chance round:

    – Josef Johansson – Hela natten
    – Linda Bengtzing – Ta mig


    – Ammotrack – Raise your hands
    – Ellinore Holmer – En himmelsk sång
    – I.D.A – Fight me if you dare
    – Janet Leon – Hollow

    Good luck Sweden!
