Team Wiwi are big supporters of Robin Stjernberg and we totally understand why the bookies have listed him so high on the odds table. But if Robin wants to move even higher he seriously needs to work on his choreography before Eurovision.

These pictures tell part of the story. Robin has a weird habit of thrusting his left hand back like he’s waiting for a member of the Jamaican 4 x 100 team to pass him a baton. And no: These images do not all come from the exact same moment in his performance. You can tell partly from the fact the back-up dancers are in different positions.

That’s easily fixable. Robin knows how to adjust to new habits and routines, as evidenced by his dramatic weight loss. More complicated will be the back-up dancers. We are seriously not feeling their interpretive dance moves, particularly around the 1:20 mark. You can review the performance below. What do you think of his staging? What else needs to go?

I didnt like the staging at Melodifest, however I like him and the song. I would like to see something like what ulrik did. Stand and sing with an exciting journey on the screens. If we have screens. Do we have screens?

Nathalie: You need to calm down. The reality is that choreography DOES matter. That’s one of the reasons Loreen won — because she had great choreography. And, having re-read the post above, the author says he supports Robin. It’s just constuctive criticism. So you need to cool it.

You’re just talking about things that are so not important…Like anyone who’s watching eurovision will pay full attention on coreography. It’s about the song which in my opinion sounds great live, nothing can be as perfect as the original, but this is the most powerful ESC song at the moment, so guys, if you don’t like Robin, you have a problem with thim it doesn’t mean you have to bring such stupid arguments to prove you’re right. Like coreography is what actually matters, or his weight… Focus on those real fail songs, if you want to criticize anyone it should… Read more »

Actually, the “interpretive dance moves” of the back-up dancers are the only enjoyable part of this rather hopeless performance. What has to go is shrieking Robert and his substandard tune.

Given his past, it’s no surprise that he’s not a great mover — No doubt what the dancers were trying compensate for.
I expect that plans and training are already well under way for a whole new presentation.
