Who do you want to represent Sweden at Copenhagen? Will 2014 be an improvement on 2013?

Well, it’s looking much better than this year, that’s for sure. The only bit of news I’m not happy to see is that State of Drama is here >_>

I was hoping we would get a chance to see Nanne Gronvall, Mans Zelmerlow, Magnus Carlsson and Eddie Razaz.

From the presented list I’m curious about the songs of Shirley Clamp, Alcazar and Linda Bengtzing.

well, I’m excited… the mentioned artist show a good mix of old favourites and new. I cant wait for Febuary.

complicating matters…. he has a hot tub which i like listening to euro tunes in.

life throws so many dilemmas and highs at you all at the once. x

I just hope the boring old schlager sound does not come back like it happened during the 2000s … it was so lame and painful to listen even in such a gorgeous language as Swedish, but having songs that try to sound like mere parodies and embarrassing copies of old ABBA songs or songs we used to listen in 80’s pop kitsch is just awful. And what disappoints me is that the singers are always better than the songs. That is just hard to handle to see them singing mediocre stuff. And it seems everybody will be focusing in both… Read more »

Yesssssss Janet’s back. “Heartstrings” was my favourite song from last year’s Melodifestivalen and I was shocked it didn’t make the final. I’ll definitely be voting for her this year and I’m hoping she can pull off the victory. This might be the best Melodifestivalen yet 😀

-State of Drama again? Those guys are boring! -Here we have Linda Bengtzing going for a fifth time. She has 100% chance of sucess of going to the final (with only one being through Andra). Will she keep her record? E det fel pa mig was catchy and IMO her best effort. -EKO won with Yellow and now they’re going with Red. Will they end up feeling Blue? -Four Kempes and two G:Sons (not a good one for Tom, no?) K-One and the Debs are being pushed a lot this year, no? There’s also more than one from Bobby and… Read more »
