FINALLY, people! After two of the worst ever Melodifestivalen semi-finals, tonight’s semi featured a host of quality acts fighting for two precious spots to Friends Arena in Stockholm.
The show displayed the amazing diversity that MF usually showcases. From Caroline af Ugglas’ moving ballad to a handful of upbeat pop songs to a pop-rock number, last night’s show had it all.
State of Drama’s “Falling” was the first song to make it direct to the Final, and deservedly so. This pop-rock group has amazing stage presence coupled with professional vocals, and could actually make in-roads at Eurovision a la Denmark’s A Friend in London.
After Caroline af Ugglas unfortunately got relegated to the Second Chance, along with pop singer Martin Rolinski, Fredrik Kempe’s newest pop protege Janet Leon saw her dreams crash as a bunch of old-ass folk singers Ravaillacz qualified direct to the Final.
Um, we are in shock at wiwibloggs. Those old folks cannot sing, and will not win. Why in the world would a quality pop song like Janet Leon’s, or a power ballad like Caroline af Ugglas’ get booted? Swedish people, what is wrong with you???
