Can’t believe that Janet ended up last…… So as Amanda Fondell last year…… I want Ellen to win mellofest

Same old boring songs they have chosen to the final. I’m surprised by Josef Johannsen, how did he came 7th? And how did EKO in last week didn’t qualified either? Well, I guess the final will not be as interesting as 2012 was..

So.. The songs that went to the final were in my bottom 3, ”Raise Your Hands” was my worst, and ”En Himmelsk Sang” was my 4th. So Im not really pleased with the results in Sweden. Janet Leon had by miles the best song and came last. IDA were really original and came 6th. Josef was good and came 7th and Linda was also fine and came 5th. I really am dissapointed that Alcazar made the final no matter how much everyone likes them. Their song was so dated and traditional Alcazar. Anton had also a stereotypical song, nothing special.… Read more »

Totally f’ed up results. Of all the times Linda partaked in MF, they had to break her perfect final record with her best song yet. What?

Alcazar and Anton? Really?

Only Ammotrack made to to AC (the hope spot in thsi semi) but with that horrible snoozefest that was En himmelsk sång

So for once the favourites did go “direkt till finalen” lol. Anton moving forward first was expected likewise was Oscar, Yohio and Sanna. If they deserved it or not that is a whole other topic. But none of these 4 are amongst my favourites. Too formulaic songs and too teenish for my taste and Sanna in particular lacks emotion and honesty by trying to enter the “Wrecking Ball” ballad territory but unconvincingly. As for Alcazar … a literally recycled and copy-pasted of their 2009 “Stay The Night” … expected but very unoriginal. As I was listening to their reprise I… Read more »

My favorites made it to the final so I’m very happy for that!! But I’m NOT HAPPY that Ellinore didn’t finished last. It’s a bloody disgrace that this girl who sang like a neutered cat got a spot in Andra Chansen. I’d rather see Linda or Janet there. Poor poor Janet, she didn’t deserved the 8th place 🙁

Alcazar was easily the best act tonight – phenomenal vocals and lively staging. I’m really glad they went straight to final, as songs like that usually don’t make it nowadays. Anton was no surprise but his song was really quite interesting (gospel choir for the win!) so I’m not unhappy about that either. Ammotrack, though? Not a good pick. I’m surprised Janet was last, too – I thought she was pretty good for the most part.

By the way, Linda got eliminated in 5th and Ellinore qualified for the second chance. Anyways, I’m so disappointed in my country. My bottom four qualified, while my whole top four was eliminated. I really wish they’d introduce a jury in the semi-finals so the teenage girl population of Sweden didn’t determine who qualifies and who didn’t. Janet didn’t have the best vocal performance (she did injure her throat though) but she did not deserve last place at all. She was better than half the other artists tonight. Well, I can only hope either Ace or Ellen get sent to… Read more »
