I wonder if there’s any point in showcasing volume of your muscles if you don’t need it to sing. our Zlata Ognevich once said how she train for the stage “I run and sing”. I hope every artist will consider this approach instead of transmuting music show into power lifting competition.

I even have accent when I speak Ukrainian (my native language), because courtesy of Russian forceful education for Ukrainians I had to get education in Russian language and had only 3-4 hours per week of Ukrainian i school as an extra. I live in native environment and I speak Ukrainian, but it spoiled by Russian that I had to pick up as major language in my childhood. I would not blame any one for their bad English, because after a pair Russian-German as two major languages I had to learn in school I know for sure I’ll never speak decent… Read more »

to speak foreign language you have to live in that environment, and just speak it up (after getting nice vocabulary, after you’ll read thousands of book pages). No matter how good is your language knowledge, you can sound like native speaker only if you are native or live with natives. For some nations it is hard because their mother tongue uses very different sounds and rules (look at Russian and Japanese :))

Tonight they set out to ripping off not only the shirts but their pants as well, which turned out very difficult for Samir who kept messing it up in rehearsals and ended up with a near disjointed shoulder. Guess the gym didn’t have that machine.

Yes, they probably got good education, maybe, but it’s not just about education, not everyone are able to learn another language, it’s not easy for everyone to sit and learn some foreign language.

@Paz: Not everyone in the world, exactly. But Sweden is not anywhere in the world, they have one of the best education systems and Swedish native speakers are known to be very good at learning foreign languages. That’s why I’m surprised (especially since they’re young). How in hell is that rude?

I hope this will be most popular final of Melodifestivalen in history with greatest crowd of viewers and voters. It can reverse odds.

Wow your comment is so rude and disrespectful!
Not anyone in the world can get good education or can study another language, it’s not easy for everyone.
People should stop judging them because of their english, they are both so adorable and nice and that’s what matters.

How can you be that bad in English, when you’re a 20 something year old Swedish guy in 2016?

I’d prefer them over Frans. If Sweden wants to go down in the grand finals..they might as well have some fun with it >:-)

Good bodies are not everything – try to get at least decent song and improve vocal abilities. Better luck next time.

They should instead have vocal training under four months.

Hot bodies doesn’t compensate for a good song and performance. Especially in ESC where almost every guy has a good body. Look @ Serbia in 2007, and she won.

I like the song and I like the guys. I only want to direct towards a big problem in our society overall and that is promotion of only one type of beauty. Don’t get me wrong, I love to see hot person as much as the next guy, but there is more ways of being hot than being in the gym 24/7. Whenever I hear an actor talking about shirtless scenes, for instance, there is always a concern of working out for it. It shows, since many of them look 5 kilos thinner / heavier (depending on the physique) when… Read more »

Good on them, but hot bodies can only get you so far.
