We certainly hope not. But since this year’s Melodifestivalen tracks hit iTunes earlier this week, Sean Banan’s “Copacabana” has climbed straight to the top. That isn’t just signifiant because it’s a terrible song. It’s significant because Sean Banan performed all the way back in semi-final two. People still remember him!

The next three songs on the charts each came from the fourth semi-final. Behrang Miri’s “Jalla Dansa Sawa” is currently charting at #2 followed by (Christer Bjorkman’s obvious favourite) Ulrik Munther with “Tell the World I’m Here” and Robin Stjernberg with “You”.

YOHIO, our favourite gender bender, is currently charting at #5 with “Heartbreak Hotel”.

Nine of the Top 10 songs this week come from Melodifestivalen. Only Swedish singer Zara Larsson (“Uncover”) isn’t competing.

In my opinion since Sweden is already in the final, they’re going to choose whoever they want, but all of these songs in the final really don’t scream out “winner” to me and just want to be in top 10 or top 5. If Sean wins, I’m not sure how they can pull it off since they can only have 6 people on stage. To be honest I really don’t like Ulriks entry this year, it just doesn’t fit him comparing it to Soldiers. If anything I can see YOHIO representing Sweden

Ugh, I hope not! There are so many actually good songs in Melodifestivalen this year! I really like State of Drama’s song–it’s different for Eurovision but I think it has mass appeal. Yohio would also be a good choice for the novelty Japan factor and the song is catchy. Ulrik Munther would be good too.

I sure hope not! Sean Banan is a pathetic excuse for a comedian, and “Copacabanana” depends wholly upon the tacky stage presentation for its impact.

Ulrik Munther’s act is far too calculated for my liking – the title especially smacks of a wannabe winner. YOHIO could be an interesting choice…

In the final atm I’m rooting for Ralf and Yohio. Also Martin, if he makes it past Andra Chansen.

Well… the last time Eurovision was in Malmö, Sweden get a second last place, maybe the story will be the same this time

Wow. Shocked! Totally agree will take away the standard set by Loreen last year and actually the edfort that is being made bu many countries this year and instead of raising eurovisions profile will send it back to laughable standards.

On one level I think maybe Sean deserves to win, maybe to shake up the thinking of the producers this year. I’d be disappointed however but maybe it’s needed.

If Sean Banan ends up winning Melodifestivalen 2013 this year, it’ll make a complete mockery of Loreen’s well-deserved victory last year. Non Eurovision fans will see Sean as a novelty ‘joke’ act and Sweden having their own Father Ted moment. And I really want Ulrik Munther to clinch the Melodifestivalen title this year.
