Melodifestivalen 2014: Reviews and Rankings by the Wiwi Jury

melodifestivalen2014

 

This year’s Melodifestivalen finalists—Ace Wilder, Alcazar, Anton Ewald, Ellen Benedicktson, Helena Paparizou,Oscar Zia, Linus Svenning, Panetoz, Sanna Nielsen, and YOHIO—have already survived their semi-finals and the Andra Chansen. But now they face an even greater challenge: surviving the Wiwi Jury.

All this week our in-house panel of music unprofessionals offered its frank opinion of each of the songs. They assigned them a score from zero to ten, and then the scores were averaged for the Wiwi Jury verdict. Our jury consists of an American, an Australian, an Austrian, several Brits, a Finn and an Irishman—so we are totally international, y’all.

Want to express your opinion and support your favourite? Be sure to comment on each individual post and don’t forget to vote in our Melodifestivalen 2014 poll.

You’ve already sat through five weeks of Melodifestivalen. Now it’s time to sit through a sixth. But when this one ends we’ll finally have a winner—and Sweden’s Eurovision 2014 singer!

    I wouldn’t say all of us dislike Ellen, I gave her a 7, she has a really pretty voice! 🙂

    But seeing Linus higher than Ace isn’t what I want to see unfortunately.

    I love how Anton’s ‘song’ is ahead of Ellen, and Linus is ahead of Ace… I am perhaps giving up on my dream of songbird in spite of the fact that it is very very lovely, betting my ballad chips on Silent storm, which for some reason yall at wiwi also hate…and assuming a two horse race between Sanna and Ace

    I think this is what’s going to happen on Saturday:

    1) Sanna;
    2) Ace;
    3) Helena;
    4) Anton.

    The rest is open to debate. Good luck everybody, and a big THANK YOU to Shirley, Manda, EKO, Josef and Outrigger.
