The Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – has given its final review for Melodifestivalen 2015. Måns Zelmerlöw emerged as the jury favourite with a score of 8.45/10. Måns will perform his song ‘Heroes’ in sixth place at the final of Melodifestivalen 2015 tonight. Below you can recap the best and worst reviews we gave to all twelve songs competing at the final of Melodifestivalen 2015.

1. Måns Zelmerlöw – “Heroes

http://youtu.be/WX_8Zj7d4rk

The good: “Heroes” starts off with a moody southern sound, but it builds and builds until it’s a big ol’ banger.”

The bad: “Song’s OK overall, but it lacks originality and it’s a bit too last year for my taste.”

2. Eric Saade – ”Sting

http://youtu.be/_jdYpbZ4oQE

The good: “This is pop perfection.”

The bad: “It’s not a winner for me, sorry.”

3. Mariette – “Don’t Stop Believing

The good: “She’s a bad ass dark fairy godmother and she might just be spellbinding enough to cause an upset.”

The bad: “I’m hoping SVT cranks up the wind machine even more and blows this song away.”

4. Dinah Nah – “Make Me (La La La)

http://youtu.be/hY7Vl6B-kTg

The good: She’s grown in confidence and I’m starting to believe there is a wild diva wearing that pink hair! You go girl!
The bad: Isa and Eric have better bangers, and they actually dance.

5. Isa – “Don’t Stop

http://youtu.be/rKNLoJSV8Qk

The good: This chick has enough energy to power the entire city of Stockholm!
The bad: “It’s not enough, another song should have qualified to the final instead of this song.”

6. Jon Henrik Fjällgren – “Jag är fri (Manne leam frijje)

http://youtu.be/ZqRP_tXjLTs

The good: “It stands out musically and thematically.”
The bad: “There’s no reason anyone should be putting this near the top because it will not go to Eurovision.”

7. Jessica Andersson – “Can’t Hurt Me Now

The good: “Jessica Andersson exudes professionalism.”
The bad: “She doesn’t deserve it.”

8. Samir & Viktor – “Groupie

The good: “‘Groupie’ is freaking catchy. Samir & Viktor bring Melfest to PART-A city.”
The bad: “I hate their song so much I wish someone choked them with the selfie-stick.”

9. Linus Svenning – “Forever Starts Today

The good: “This song is great and I love the fire”
The bad: “The song doesn’t convince me to embark on eternity with Linus”

10. Magnus Carlsson – “Möt mig i Gamla stan

http://youtu.be/bgLZDTz1u_g

The good: “He knows the job on stage and nails it.”
The bad: “This isn’t disco, this is disc-NO.”

11. JTR – “Building It Up

http://youtu.be/TVkfnVbH5k0

The good: “Good looks, good voices and good stage swagger: they are a triple threat.”
The bad: “It’s not going to Vienna anyway, so why bother.”

12. Hasse Andersson – “Guld och gröna skogar

http://youtu.be/7fUT-iPlP0I

The good: “He comes on with his country tune, gets the crowd clapping along, and leaves everyone with a smile. ”
The bad: “I ain’t got a ray of light to toss the way of the honky-tonk song.”

I’m sorry but I really cannot fathom why Mans’ song is so popular :s Hoping he or Eric don’t win and that Sweden sends Jon Henrik, Mariette or Dinah Nah instead!

Mans has been robbed in the past (Cara Mia), let’s hope things go according to plan tonight.

I personally think Eric Saade is what ESC 2015 needs, too many similar songs this year, I think Sweden would stand out if Eric returned, Sting is just as good as popular 🙂

I’d be happy with any of the top 4 apart from Eric.

Besides that this blog article was incredibly poor, I am wondering why there is the need to post three articles in a row about Mans is going to win. It could have been just one.

The only similar thing in Måns and Guettas songs, is that the first part is the same genre, like old american western’ish country music, and then it turns into a real banging uptempo modern pop song. But genre, is not enough to accuse someone of plagarism. Stop it you guys. The songs melody and lyrics + way of singing is totally different. Måns or Mariette for the victory tonight!!!

I’m not particularly impressed by Mans’ song (still so much better than Eric’s), but I’m blown away by the performance! And I don’t mean HIS actual singing, but the special effects. It would be totally awesome to see them in Vienna!

“I’m hoping SVT cranks up the wind machine even more and blows this song away.”
I think the same, but then I wonder why she is on 3rd place in this ranking.
