I don’t know how some people can judge these songs only based on a 15-second snippet. Personally, I think they’re far too short and I’ll reserve my judgment until I have listened to all complete songs.

Norway will have an amazing selection as usual. My standout tracks are “Best Friend’s Boyfriend”, “Heal”, “Right Now”, “Hit Me Up”, “Bensin”, and “Sole Survivor”.

I hope that songs in Melodifestivalen and DMGP will be better than songs from MGP.

Not good song this year at MGP.
My TOP 6 after snippets

1. Linnea
2. El Cuero
3. Carl Espen
4. MO
5. Cir.cuz
6. Elisabeth

But I think fight for victory in final bettwen Dina, Mo, El Cuero and Carl in super final. I predict Dina or El Cuero to Eurovision 2014 for Norway.

The only name that I’m excited about here is Moi! Seems like they’re going for a lot of no-names this time and from the snippets there doesn’t seem to be as much variety as there was last year for example.
