Spain 2013 - With "Contigo Hasta El Final" to Malmö!

Photo: TVE
Yeah I know it's old news by now but I was too busy with the uni. I watched the final though. How could I miss it? Pastora Soler performed! Twice! Spain picked my favourite song. "Contigo Hasta El Final". However I don't think they will do well in Malmö! I even predict a bottom 7! :/ I wasn't so optimistic from the beginning about ESDM... I liked CHEF from the snippet and I was expecting it to be really good but no. It has no climax. It's quite forgettable and finally, it's Spain!

Lo siento mis amigos... Best of luck in May!

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Fourth semi - Results

Photo: Lindwall Sven
Fourth semi is over and honestly I couldn't care less about the results right now. ALCAZAR! Just wow!

Ok so Ulrik Munther with "Tell The World I'm Here" and Ralf Gyllenhammar with "Bed On Fire" made it to the final. Ehm. Ok.

To andra chansen: Behrang Miri with "Jalla Dansa Sawa" and Robin Stjernberg with "You".
Damn I wanted Behrang to the final!

5. "Breaking The Silence" – Terese Fredenwall
6. "Rockin' The Ride" – Army of Lovers
7. "Trivialitet" – Sylvia Vrethammar
8. "Must Be Love" – Lucia Piñera

So Army of Lovers didn't make it. Not even to the ac! But really couldn't they sing live? I mean camera caught La Camilla lip synching! Lame! And damn I was so close about Sylvia! Not last. Second-to-last! At least the cleaning crew won't have so much work to do in her dressing room. xD

So yeah, highlights of the 4th semi: Petra Mede, Sarah Dawn Finer and Alcazar. Anything BUT the competing songs!
And once again all the good songs are in andra chansen! 
EDIT: So after hearing all 32 songs I have to say one thing. Why couldn't Lisa Miskovsky enter this year with "Why Start A Fire"? It would have been the perfect entry for the hosts! :(  

Melodifestivalen 2013 - 1st general rehearsal of the 4th semi (plus some extra details about my day in Malmö)

Back from Malmö! What a day! And night! I left Linköping at 10:18 (yeah I'm becoming a Swede lol) and arrived in Malmö at 13:35. Again, the only reason I went there is Alcazar! I knew in which hotel they were staying (long story but honestly if you follow them on instagram it's not difficult to find out ;)) so I went there to meet them. I will leave out lots of details on the how-I-knew-about-their-schedule. Anyway, they weren't there. I left and went to Malmö Arena hoping to run into them. I was out in the cold for about two hours. Almost froze to death (yeah not the first time I'm doing this). During these two hours I saw Danny and Gina (didn't care to talk to them or take a photo), Jean-Pierre of Army of Lovers (nope, no photo with him either. too "frozen" and too depressed to the idea that I might not meet my Alcazar) and La Camilla of AoL! Now, I'm not 100% sure it was her... She was wearing snglasses (it was cloudy!) so it has to be her right?

And the time went by... I decided to go inside the mall which was right across the street. Just for 5 minutes. To get my body temperature back to normal. Needless to say that I was terrified that Alcazar might show up while I was inside. Well I knew the girls would stay in the arena all day but who could guarantee that they actually stay in? Andreas was tricky. I was told he was in the arena but he wasn't. I went outside again and within the next 2-3 minutes a bus stopped and Andreas got off! It took me a while to recognize him and I literally stopped him on his way in! We talked for a few seconds and he went inside. Last thing he told me: "Don't freeze to death!" I was thinking "aaaww how sweet" but I said "I will!" (like "I will because of you (Alcazar)! Coz I want to see you! So I will freeze to death if I have to!") Anyway, let's go to the part you're probably reading the post for.

General rehearsal
After meeting Andreas I went back to the mall so I wouldn't freeze to death. The arena doors were still closed. But eventually they opened the doors, I went inside and I got my seat (a good one I might add) and the show began.

Opening act! A great one! They make it look like we're about to watch Eurovision's final! The music, the old ESC logo, the commentators! Danny and Gina acting like Ell and Leyla. I laughed a lot with that and you'll see why... ;) And then comes Petra! Petra Mede! She scolds them for making fun of it and doing her job! She takes over and presents Melodifestivalen in french! Respect! Her french (even though I dislike the language) is really really good! Totally the best choice to host the ESC (Sarah Dawn Finer would be great for me as well but I don't know if she speaks french). Sarah had her own part in the semi... ;)

Then we go to the first contestants. Army of Lovers! I don't know what to say about their song. It's weird with a "wtf is this?" feeling but catchy at the same time! I liked what I saw but it could have been better. It's AoL after all!

Lucia Piñera is next. Yeah the song is too Adele but I like it! Nothing special on stage. Unlike AoL.

Robin Stjernberg gets on stage and I have to say that the song is good but his voice still annoys me... Smoke and dancers on stage.

Then comes Sylvia Verthammar with the ultimate snoozefest! And probably the most boring staging of this year's mello! In the mello magazine there's a question asked to her: "What will you do if you finish last?". She replies: "I will go to my dressing room and break everything!". I say: The cleaning crew will have a lot of work to do in Sylvia's dressing room. ;)

And here comes Ralf Gyllenhammar. Remember when I told you I got scared for a sec? I was prepeared yesterday. Can't say the same about the rest of the audience though. There's a lot of fire on stage. I was sitting quite far (as you can see) and I felt the heat! I wonder what those people in the first row felt!

Behrang Miri. All I'm gonna say here is: SEND HIM TO THE FINAL!! Love the song! So happy and uplifting! Amazing!

Terese Fredenwall tries to pull a Lisa Miskovsky but it doesn't work for me. Sorry.

And finally we have Ulrik Munther. He grew up in one year! At least that's how he seemed to me. And I liked what I saw.

Then it's (fake) voting time. The weekly video they do (which I didn't pay any attention to) and the (fake) results. Army of Lovers are 6th, Behrang 7th and Ulrik 8th! xD

And here comes the highlight of the evening! The reason I came to Malmö! Alcazar's comeback! New fluo outfits, new choreos and a new member. Danny. Well they start without him with "Stay The Night" then "Alcastar" and Danny joins them in "Not A Sinner Nor A Saint". I was really negative about Danny joining them but I have to say it was good! What I'm really happy about is that I got to see them performing "Stay The Night" in a big arena. A la Melodifestivalen! Simply amazing!!

I actually left the rehearsal right after Alcazar performed. Andreas told me earlier that they would leave right away so I left too. I went back to their hotel waiting for them. While I was waiting (outside again! brr) a woman passed me by. It was dark, she was wearing a hood... I thought it was Lina. She looked at me but she didn't react so I thought it wasn't her. I found Andreas and Tess later at a hotel a few steps away from the one they were staying. (it's a hotel chain. in both hotels are staying the artists and crew of mello). They were outside ready to go so yeah. I finally met them! They told me Lina had gone back to the hotel coz her baby was with her in Malmö. So I'm pretty sure it was Lina who passed right in front of me earlier...

Anyway I got my photo with Andreas, Tess and a "new" member who I asked to pose as "Lina". Sarah Dawn Finer! I got to meet Sarah too! :D Oh, I talked with Andreas (obviously) and he asked me if I liked the show. Apart from the "YES!!!" I told him that they need to come back!

- In mello?
- No. Generally! Alcazar needs to come back!
- Mmm we will see how it turns out... (And he had a look)
- Should I take that as a hint?
- Mmm I don't know (that look again)... we'll see... (getting serious) You never know.

Oh my God! Please please let that be a comeback! Pleeeeease!

And to end the post, let me tell you that I missed (more like I let it leave) the last train back to Linköping! Thank God I found a Burger King that is open until 6am on Fridays and Saturdays! Otherwise I'd be screwed. Big time! There's no way I'd stay out for 6-7 hours in that cold! I'd had to find a hotel and pay A LOT. I couldn't afford spending more money. I really couldn't! Well I "blame" Alcazar for that. But I couldn't leave without seeing them! Even though I didn't see Lina... :/ Call me crazy for doing that. Call me an idiot or whatever you want. I might be at some level. But I love them.

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Rehearsals of the fourth semi

Ok before I start commenting on the rehearsals let me tell you that Carola will perform at the interval act of the final! Malmö's interval act will be better though. For me at least. We'll get to that even though I think it's old news by now but I'm super excited about it, so yeah, I will say a few things on that.

Rehearsals ladies and gentlemen!

Army of Lovers - Rockin’ The Ride
Legends or what? However, correct me if I'm wrong but that was a playback right? The song is quite catchy. Weird lyrics but it's AoL! Green light from me!

Lucia Piñera - Must Be Love
"We could have had it aaaaaaaaaaaaaaall, rolling in the deeeeeeeeeeeep...." Sorry I got carried away. That's not what Lucia was singing. Or was it? No? Ok. It's not bad but I need to hear the full version.

Robin Stjernberg - You
His voice annoys me and the song is nothing special. Next!

Syliva Vrethammar - Trivialitet
Seriously? o.O For the love of God! Really I'm like wtf? I don't like it. I find it boring and the perfect candidate for the 8th place! 

Ralf Gyllenhammar - Bed On Fire
Brolle in 20 years from now? Hopefully not! Ralf, dear Ralf. What is this? I have to say I got scared for a moment... You'll know in which part. Not really my cup of tea...

Behrang Miri - Jalla Dansa Sawa
That's nice actually. Perfect after this snoozefest we had until now (AoL are an excpetion). 

Terese Frendenwall - Breaking The Silence
The winner of "Svensktoppen nästa".... I'm not fan of the song. I got a Lisa Miskovsky wannabe vibe and that's not good...

Ulrik Munther - Tell The World I'm Here
Better than last year's attempt. Much better I can say. For my taste. But still it's nothing "wow". I see him making it to the final though... Little girls will vote for him.

So it's Army of Lovers and Behrang to the final for me. Or Lucia (yeah I know!) instead of Behrang. I'll be fine with Ulrik too. I guess.

Anyway, let's go the important part of the fourth semi! The opening and interval acts! Petra Mede will open the semi on Staturday! :D Wiiiie!! I've no idea what she's gonna do but I don't care! It's Petra Mede!

And the highlight for me...

Photo: Fredrik Sandberg/Scanpix

Alcazar will perform on Staruday! That's the interval act! Danny will be the "4th member" (a bit -.- here)... No idea what he's gonna do. Why does he have to be involved in everything? Really? Can't they let my Alcazar do their thing? Ok, ok. I stop whinning. I'm actually in a great great mood! Because I am going to Malmö!!!! I went through a mini (serious) depression the day I found out they'll perform in mello but that was it. I bought a ticket for tomorrow's general rehearsal! There was no way I will let them "go away" again! I haven't seen them since Stockholm Pride 2011! They have reunited a few times since then but it was either for private performances, or they were too far, or I had no money (ok I don't have money now but to hell with it! I'm going!) or I found out about the performance after they did it! That's it! I'm going to see them! Tomorrow I am going to Malmö!

So on Saturday morning [(if I manage to come back home somehow) coz I haven't booked a ticket to come home yet] you will have, for the first time through my blog, a review about what you will see on tv on Saturday evening!

Greece 2013 - With Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovidis to Malmö!

Ok my home country picked its entry tonight. It's Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovidis with "Alcohol Is Free". God I don't like it! 0 points! My favourite was Thomai Apergi with "One Last Kiss". Yeah I know it's too Nina Zilli but it was the only song I liked out of these 4 we had. Alex Leon ft Giorgina with "Angel" and Aggeliki Iliadi with "Hilies Ke Mia Nyhtes" were the other two.

Apart from the results I loved the entire show! It was amazing! Ruslana, Marija Šerifović, Dima Bilan and Alexander Rybak were there and performed their winning entries along with other Greek artists. (the videos should be on YouTube soon) However the highlight of the night was totally Vicky Leandros who sang "Apre Tois" with Helena Paparizou! Helena sang also a new remixed version of "My Number One" Vegas. (thanks to for the videos!) 

We also had Despina Olympiou, the Cypriot entrant with "An Me Thimase" and Eleftheria Eleftheriou with Ivi Adamou singing a mash-up of their 2012 entries. Really nice! 

So yeah, great night, horrible result!

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Third semi - Results

Photo: Lindwall Sven
And it keeps getting worse! I seriously don't get how the Swedes vote. Years now. To be honest I was expecting Ravaillacz (En Riktig Jävla Schlager) to make it to the final. They always send a crappy song to the final! I wasn't expecting State of Drama (Falling) to the final though. I like the song but it's more like a radio song. They're not gonna win anyway.

To andra chansen: Caroline af Ugglas with "Hon Har Inte" and Martin Rolinski with "In And Out Of Love".

I actually wanted Martin to the final! I like the song a lot even though the chorus is almost identical to Modern Talk's "Cheri Cheri Lady". I don't care. I like Martin's song and he looked great tonight! Loved his outfit. So simple and yet so great!

I'm also glad for Caroline. Not a big fan of her song but I kinda like it. It's so....Caroline!

5. "Heartstrings" – Janet Leon
6. "Alibi" – Eddie Razaz
7. "Dumb" – Amanda Fondell
8. "Island" – Elin Petersson

I can't believe that Janet, Eddie and Amanda are out! I wanted Janet to the final. Amanda was a disappointment for me. Well the song, not her. She has a great attitude on stage and I like that. As for Eddie, well the 1-minute snippet sounded promising but listening to the entire song didn't do it for me. I'm just surprised coz it was a favourite...

I didn't comment previous weeks' interval acts but I will do it now coz they sucked! So boring! And enough with Gina and Danny being in every one of them! At least next week we'll have Carola! Yes Carola! Carola Häggkvist! At least that's what she hinted in one of her blog posts.

Ps. Det dröjer ett gäng lördagar innan jag står på denna scen i år..

That's from her blog. "It will take a couple of weeks before I get on that stage this year"

So I think it's safe to say she'll perform in mello next week! Yay! Some real schlager people!

EDIT: About Carola... Yeah she might perform in ac or in the final. Who knows?

Austria 2013 - With Natália Kelly to Malmö!

Photo: Milenko Badzic (ORF)
I'm happy again! Thank you Austria and welcome to my top 10! For the first time ever! :O You should be really happy about this guys! Hahahaha! "Shine" was my winner since the day I heard the 5 songs! I really hope Natália makes it to the final in May! Good luck guys! Good choice! :D

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Rehearsals of the third semi

Busy day yesterday! I was all day at the uni and I almost missed the german final coz I was in the lab. So, no time to blog about the mello rehearsals. But here I am! Let's go!

Eddie Razaz - Alibi
I like this! It's a bit David Lindgren and a bit Anton Ewald but that's mello!

Elin Petersson - Island
Nice hairdo! xD The song... ehm ok I guess...

Ravaillacz - En Riktig Jävla Schlager
Oh my God! This is embarassing and no! It's not en riktig jävla schlager! At all!

Amanda Fondell - Dumb
Oh those mirrors are so Cyprus 2005! I'm not crazy about the song. I guess I was expecting something else. It's not bad though...

Martin Rolinski - In And Out Of Love
I like it! For some reason I'm expecting a gimmick here. We'll see if there is one. (I'm not reading  bloggers' comments so I don't know anything more other than what I see in those 1 minute clips) Oh and I'm glad Martin got a haircut! He looks so much better!

Caroline af Ugglas - Hon Har Inte
The classic Caroline but I'm afraid I don't like this one.

State of Drama - Falling
Radio song. I like his voice and generally it's not boring.

Janet Leon - Heartstrings
Like like like! Give me more!

It's Martin and Janet to the final for me!

Germany 2013 - With Cascada to Malmö!

Photo: Marieke Duijts (EBU)
It's done! Cascada to Malmö!!!!!! YES YES YES!!!!!! Welcome to my top 3 Germany! :D Amazing performance of "Glorious"! However they really need to work on the staging! Get some dancers and stuff! But they can fix this! Natalie's vocals were better than I expected. She is amazing when she sings unplugged but when she has to dance she's kinda off. They really need to do something about it. I don't want another Hungary 2011! But yeah, overall I liked the performance!

And of course now that they won, the "this is so Euphoria" comments are popping up everywhere! I see no "Euphoria" in "Glorious"! Cascada have been doing this kind of music for a long time. Long before "Euphoria" came along! And alright, Cascada's music isn't original. Almost all of their songs sound the same. It's just a beat and no melody. And I don't listen to that kind of music. But damn it, I like Cascada!

Please note I'm a Gemini. I can have two different opinions about one thing! lol

My prediction (so far) about their placing is that they will end up somewhere in the top 15. They're in my top 3 though! ;)

A reason to keep hoping

I sent this to Margaret's page and to MGP's page right after Margaret won. A while ago I got this reply! So, fingers crossed then! :D

Norway 2013 - With Margaret Berger to Malmö

Photo: Mattis Sandblad
Thank you thank you thank you Norway!!! Margaret won!! I am extatic! "I Feed You My Love" is my ESC winner right now! Denmark dropped to no2!

There's only one thing they need to do now.

Dear norwegian delegation,
I am begging you to keep the performance the way it is now! Send it to Malmö WITHOUT changing anything. Keep the same staging, same lighting, same camera work, same dress, same hairdo... EVERYTHING!
It's so unique the way it is now! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING!

We might even go back to Oslo next year! ;)

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Second semi - Results

Photo: Lindwall Sven
Really? -.- Really Sweden? Sean Banan (Copacabanana) to the final? I'm gonna have to watch that thing live? *puking*

Second finalist is Louise Hoffsten (Only The Dead Fish Follow The Stream). Now that was a surprise! I don't really mind her but there were better songs than this.

To andra chansen: Anton Ewald with "Begging" and Erik Segerstedt & Tone Damli with "Hello Goodbye".

5. "Make Me No 1" – Felicia Olsson
6. "On Top of the World" – Swedish House Wives
7. "En förlorad sommar" – Rikard Wolff
8. "Annelie" – Joacim Cans

Sad for SHW! :( I wanted them at least in ac!

Liked it a lot that Hanson, Carson and Malmkvist made a comeback. But Danny next time do your homework. They entered mello together in 2004 not 2005!

Oh I can't say anything else right now. I'm watching the MGP final! Go Margaret!

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Rehearsals of the second semi

Today's rehearsals can be found here.

Anton Ewald - Begging
Was he singing? It looked like it was a playback. Maybe because it was just a rehearsal... I like the choreo and the song. But I don't like that "aauuuu". Sounds like a wolf.

Felicia Olsson - Make Me No1
Oh God. Those lyrics... Don't like 'em. And I'm not a fan of the song either...

Erik Segerstedt & Tone Damli - Hello Goodbye
I like the chorus. It's quite nice but from this one minute, the chorus is the only part I like. I need to listen to the entire song.

Swedish House Wives - On Top Of The World
Rooting like hell for them! Did you expect me not to? Especially now that I heard the song and I like it a lot! Love their name! Hahaha And if you simply call them SHW you actually have the initials of their last names. Awesome! Haha!

Joacim Cans - Annelie
Wow. Ok I wasn't expecting this by Joacim. I was expecting a hard rock song. Definitely not that. It's not bad actually and I like that he sings in swedish but yeah. Not something I would listen.

Louise Hoffsten - Only The Dead Fish Follow The Stream
Oh that title! I can't say a lot here. It's just the chorus... But I like what I hear actually. Maybe not for the ESC though. Weird staging...

Rikard Wolff - En Förlorad Sommar
The sleeping pill of week no2! Don't like it. At all.

Sean Banan - Copacabanana
Oh such an original melody! Don't you agree? I so dislike him! He's annoying and disgusting! And of course I don't like the song! I hope we don't get to see him in the final! I really don't want to experience this live!

Greece 2013 - The songs

All day at the uni, then at work, now I'm back and it's time to comment my country's candidates.

Aggeliki Iliadi - "Hilies Ke Mia Nihtes"
Ok that's not greek music. It's more a mixture of arabic and turkish music but it's not uncommon to hear such songs in Greece. I totally dislike that genre. Really really not my cup of tea.

Alex Leon ft Giorgina - "Angel"
What the hell is this? I have one word to describe the music of this song. Hubbub (thanks to google translator coz I never wanted to use that greek word in english before). The rest of it is just too bland. Nothing special and very forgettable.

Thomai Apergi - "One Last Kiss"
Well hello there Nina Zilli! But I actually like this. I think it's my favourite! Totally not greek but it's closer to what I like!

Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovidis - "Alcohol Is Free"
Ok that's just horrible! I listened to this once. I can't do this again.

So I obviously have a clear winner. Compared to last year, this NF has more diversity which is a good thing. Yeah it's not the music I like but I'm not Europe... ;)

Spain 2013 - The 4 songs of El Sueño de Morfeo

So after a two-hour delay, RTVE released the 4 songs. Unfortunately only the two of them are in full length. The ones that are in the voting to take the ticket for the final. I didn't blog about this year's process coz as I said before, I don't use the blog to inform you. Just to comment. It's impossible to keep up with everything. I'm alone here. I don't have a team like the big websites.

Anyway, they're using the same format as last year. Two songs are already in the final and the 3rd one will be chosen via online voting.

Contigo Hasta El Final
I think this is my favourite. For now at least. I might change my mind. Who knows? But as I said when I first blogged about ESDM, they're not my cup of tea. This song starts slowly which is something I need from them in order to like the song. Here, if you click on the video you'll listen some other parts of the song in the background and in the end you can hear a small part of the chorus.

Dame Tu Voz
Uhm... no. I don't like this one. And I don't think I'll change my mind when I hear the full version.

A good beginning, something bugs me when we hit the chorus, then it gets good in the second verse and I totally love the guitar part at 1:58. Overall I like it. Actually what bugs me is Raquel's voice in combination with the celtic music. Maybe if they used someone else's backing vocals I'd like it more... hm...

I kinda like the chorus of this one but it sounds like a never-ending song. It reached at 2:07 and I thought "ok it's ending" (I didn't know it was at 2:00+) but we had another 50 seconds and for me it was too much. So I guess it's a no for this one.

Well I can't say I'm impressed but I wasn't expecting to be impressed since I don't like this music. It's between "Contigo Hasta El Final" and "Revolución" for me. But unfortunately I don't see them doing well in ESC. Of course I need to listen to all the ESC entries before I draw such a conclusion at this point. Maybe I'm wrong...

The good thing is that they stuck to their sound. Even if I don't like it. :)

Melodifestivalen 2013 - First semi - Results

Photo: Lindwall Sven
First semi is over. Yup. It was the worst mello semi ever! I can't believe that the songs were that bad! Out of 2549 songs that were sent to SVT this year, these 8 were what? The best? Those that can do great in ESC? Are you kidding me? Obviously they're not picking the songs with that criteria! The thought of switching to another preselection round crossed my mind. Too many times. But I didn't do it. Because it's Melodifestivalen! 

Well let's go to the results... David Lindgren with "Skyline" and Yohio with "Heartbreak Hotel" are the two finalists! I was 100% sure about David. I had no clue about the rest.

To andra chansen: Cookies N Beans with "Burning Flags" and Eric Gadd with "Vi kommer aldrig att förlora".

5. "Gosa" – Mary N'diaye
6. "We’re Still Kids" – Michael Feiner & Caisa
7. "Porslin" – Anna Järvinen
8. "Paris" – Jay-Jay Johanson

Really I can't say anything here. About the interval acts, well I was chatting at the same time so I missed a few frames. I can't say I was a big fan. Oh and Danny, please, come out already!

I really really hope that the next semi will have some nice songs. We really need them!

Melodifestivalen 2013 - Rehearsals of the first semi

We have the one-minute clips from yesterday's rehearsals and I'm gonna make some comments. Please note that my thoughts about each song will probably change once I hear the full songs. As usual. xD All the rehearsals are here.

David Lindgren - Skyline
Ok this is not much different from "Shout It Out" but I totally prefer his last year's attempt.

Cookies N Beans - Burning Flags
Hm... I don't know what to say about this... I could call the chorus "nice" but that would be all. I don't see them going far. Mostly because they have no fans. But you never know...

Jay-Jay Johanson - Paris 
Really? REALLY?! That was just painful! And with some parts in french. I think I said enough!

Mary N'diaye - Gosa
Hello Stella Mwangi! Oh sorry! It's not Stella. I'm sorry I'm not a fan of this. At all. African music is not my cup of tea even though I love "Yeba"!!

Eric Gadd - Vi Kommer Aldrig Att Förlora
So so so indifferent! And so so so forgettable!

YOHIO - Heartbreak Hotel
Really not my thing! He has the right voice for his kind of music but I don't like the song nor his music.

Anna Järvinen - Porslin
*yawn* No ok she has a really nice voice but the song is so boring! And I didn't get much sleep last night so if I play this one more time I'm so gonna sleep!

Michael Feiner & Caisa - We're Still Kids
Was that what I think it was? A 12-second chorus?! :O

Oh God! David Lindgren is so in the final! And he's my winner from the weakest mello semi ever! I honestly have no clue about the second finalist and the 2 who will make it to andra chansen! Maybe YOHIO could do something. Even though I don't like him.

Really bad start dear Melodifestivalen!
