During last night’s SVT panel discussion for Eurovision 2015, Swedish music experts discussed ten more acts. The panel, which includes Kristin Amparo, Christer Björkman, Sarah Dawn Finer, Tess Merkel and Eric Saade, focused quite a bit on their home country of Sweden.
The panel was unanimous in believing that this year’s selection was filled with boring ballads (“And too many duets!,” according to SDF). But Eric Saade and Sarah Dawn Finer‘s comments about Måns Zelmerlöw and “Heroes” stood out the most.
Saade said that this year is one of the worst yet, mostly because of the quality of the setlist. He has high hopes for his compatriot:
“But it’s good in a way, because I think Måns will walk away with the victory now. Besides Australia, no one is even close to beating Måns.”
Finer also praised her fellow Swede:
The songs that stand out really make it, and it makes me think that Måns will have a great chance. It feels good for Sweden that we send something that is abnormally high class this year in terms of numbers, artist and song. He doesn’t have so many other modern pop songs to compete against.
Do you think Måns is a safe bet for the victory? Or are Eric Saade and Sarah Dawn Finer counting their chickens before they hatch?
