The last of the 4 Melodifestivalen deltavlings—and for sure one of the toughest—will take place at Örnskvlksvg this Saturday. Apologies for the Lynda Woodruff moment. It’ll actually take place in Örnsköldsvik, and more specifically the Fjällräven Center. Melodifestivalen veterans Alcazar will sing against teen idol Anton Ewald, as well as the charming Janet Leon. You can take a look of your favourite singers’ lyrics below, as well as the music they have selected to play while they make their entrance on the catwalk. Who do you think will still be standing at the end of the night?

Alcazar“Blame It On The Disco”

ALCAZAR MELODIFESTIVALEN 2014

First to sing on stage is Alcazar, one of the most popular acts that has never won #melfest. They will walk onto the stage to “In The Stone” by Earth Wind & Fire:

Janet Leon“Hollow”

JANET LEON MELODIFESTIVALEN 2014

Janet will walk the catwalk to “With Every Heartbeat” performed by Kleerup feat. Robyn. She performs third.

Hollow text / lyrics

Baby
Remember when we used to say
Someda..y
We’ll be standing in the colour rain
So ne..ar but fa..r from wha..t is le..ft
Save me
cause without you I’m turning grey

Hollow, making me so hollow
All I want is holding you again
trying to maintain
this sorrow of losing you, it’s breaking me
I need you here again
baby I’m afraid cause hollow
Hollow that is all I feel
I want you back with me….

Help me
Tell me what am I supposed to do
I need to
Get myself a grip of what is true
I stu..mble i..n this e..ndless haze
No way
I can’t be around this place for two

Hollow, making me so hollow
All I want is holding you again
trying to maintain
This sorrow of losing you, it’s breaking me
I need you here again
baby I’m afraid cause

I don’t wanna hurt
I don’t wanna fall down again
into the empty space of hollo..w
Hollow that is all I feel
I want you back with me..e
I’m Ho……llo……w
I´m Ho…o…o..llo………w

Hollow, making me so hollow
all I want is holding you again
trying to maintain
this sorrow of losing you, it’s breaking me
I need you here again
baby I’m afraid cause
I don’t wanna hurt
I don’t wanna fall down again,
into the empty space of hollo..w
Hollow that is all I feel
I want you back with me

Ammotrack“Raise Your Hands”

AMMOTRACK MELODIFESTIVALEN 2014

The boy band singing on stage 4th, decided that “Dude Looks Like A Lady” by Aerosmith is the song they want to hear while approaching the stage:

I´m alive now ready to fight for
what I’ve been dreaming of
Hit the lights and bring it on
Get on the ride, get ready to fly
Let’s jump in the danger zone
I’m gonna race you
gotta make sure I will never land
I wanna rush you, I wanna touch you
So what the hell am I waiting fo..o..r

Raise your hands up high
Let me hear you fly
As I chase through dirt
in a pitch-black sky
Imagination flow as revolution grow
Am I strong enough to win
only God will know
Raise your hands up high, oh yeah
So baby hold on tight
You know it feels so right
Now get ready for a hell of a ri….de

I am the tide I’m ready to dive
down into a pool of rage
Breaking the waves
I’m like a hard-hitting hurricane
I wanna rush you, I wanna touch you
So what the hell am I waiting fo..o..r

So raise your hands up high
Let me hear you fly
As I chase through dirt
in a pitch-black sky
Imagination flow as revolution grow
Am I strong enough to win
only God will know
Raise your hands up high, oh yeah
So baby hold on tight
You know it feels so right
Now get ready for a hell of a ri….de

Raise your hands up high
Let me hear you fly
As I chase through dirt
in a pitch-black sky
Imagination flow as revolution grow
Am I strong enough to win
only God will know
Raise your hands up high, oh yeah
So baby hold on tight
You know it feels so right
Now get ready for a hell of a ri….de
Raise your hands up high
Oho – oho – oho

Anton Ewald“Natural”

ANTON EWALD MELODIFESTIVALEN 2014

Last, but not least, is Anton Ewald, the crotch-grabbing Swede who made it to the final last year. He’ll walk out to “Tnt” by AC/DC.

Natural text / lyrics

How can I go o..n
Pretending it ain’t tru..e
And how can I grow stro..o..ng
Without that smile I kne..w
There’s a tattoo on my heart, saying
This belongs to yo..u
I tried deny it a..ll, but
The more I try the more
I’m longing for you
So baby hear me out just one more time
Lets make it turn from black to white
Been holding back without a reason why
But I´m change it all tonight

I wanna lose my control
So we can get it, get it right
by the morning
My love for you is s.o.o.o
Na Na Natural so natural
I wanna lose my control
So we can get it, get it right
by the morning
My love for you is s.o.o.o
Na Na Natural so natural

Happy hungry eyes
Let’s paint the world in blue
I wrote this song for yo..o.u
And every word I say is true
So baby hear me out just one more time
Lets make it turn from black to white
Been holding back without a reason why
But I´m change it all tonight

I wanna lose my control
So we can get it, get it right
by the morning
My love for you is s.o.o.o
Na Na Natural so natural
I wanna lose my control
So we can get it, get it right
by the morning
My love for you is s.o.o.o
Na Na Natural so natural

What I feel is real
Let love take the wheal
What I feel is real
What I feel
What I feel is real
Put your hands up
Let love take the wheal
Lets go
Oho………..

I wanna lose my control
So we can get it, get it right
by the morning
My love for you is s.o.o.o
Na Na Natural so natural
Na Na Natural so natural
To me
To me
To me

D, I get your point. O.k. let’s listen to the songs first. We agree that the quality of the songs this year isn’t the best we’ve seen… But, “the crotch-grabbing Swede”, excuse me, but that’s just ridiculous.

D , I’m rooting for Janet Leon too… i though her elimination unfair last year, “Heartstrings” was amazing…

Srebrenko – How could you dismiss all the songs just based on their lyrics? That’s only 1/4: Lyrics, vocals, music, performance. Anyways, the quality of the songs this year isn’t the best we’ve seen, but I don’t think it’s necessarily bad. In every semi-final so far, I’ve liked at least two of the eight, and all it really matters is to like one song overall. I’m really rooting for Janet after she was (unfairly) eliminated last year, just because of her shaky vocals. I’m really hoping Alcazar doesn’t make the final because I’ve never liked any of their songs and… Read more »

None of the lyrics seem interesting to me. Weak festival this year. There is only one good song – Undo by Sanna Nielsen. But, on the other hand, Romanian “Selectia Nationala” seems to be the strongest national selection this year with the best songs, better than those already selected for Eurovision.
