Krista is overrated by fans on this bloggs. She wili be flop like last year and stay in semi. She is new Anna Sahlene who are represent Estonia 2002 and got 4 th place fot that country, but at MF she never go to final or second chance in 3 attemps.

Don’t get the fascination over Krista. She has the most bland unremarkable song of the bunch. Like Dinah Nah Nah. Nothing to cheer for. Even 5th place would be to high for this song. She won’t have a career in Sweden with that kind of genre.. @salic Godgarina is from Italy and is known for bashing Sweden every moment she can. Last year she was absolute sure Sweden would end up near the bottom. Don’t take her seriously, no one else does. @sauron. a commission together with Björkman decides in which semi-final the songs will compete in but Björkman alone… Read more »

I just hope we don’t have any more Titanium-inspired songs for Eurovision after this semi-final.

This semi-final is quite weak. If I had to choose two contestants to go directly to the final, it would probably be Krista and FO&O.

Krista’s song is a huge disappointment ?the most bland song of all her songs.

My top 7 after hearing almost the whole songs: 1. Jasmine Kara- Gravity: 8/10, This one’s great, it reminds me of Sia’s songs. The only thing I would drop is the after-chorus music, I would like it to be more upbeat. 2. Bella & Filippa – Crcified: 7/10, Nice and relaxing country song. Nice voices. 3. FO&O- Gotta Thing About You: 6/10, Mainstream boyband pop, kinda catchy. 4. Robin Bengtsson- I Can’t Go On: 5.5/10, Also mainstream pop, but there’s something that annoys me here. 5. Krista Siegfrids- Snurra Min Jord: 5/10, Never takes off. The verses are nice and… Read more »

Havent they told you before not making fun or underestimate of other countries? I wonder which gorgeous country are you coming from?

@ Sauron – there’s a special SVT commission for that. I know a girl who was part of it for this year’s competition.

And I hope Loreen will bring a more current messege than for example … Italy? That “observation” or “messege” feels a few years too late and not so irrelevant in times we live in now to be honest.

@Sauron: Ask Christer Bjorkman. 😀
I think it’s done very very scientifically, with colour-coded post-it notes to balance styles with genres and genders etc…
(Sauron from Mordor?! I thought the hobbits destroyed your ring! So you can’t possibly exist now, right? :P)

Quite upset at the fact Krista is at the bottom of the audience poll and for the past two weeks they correctly guessed who qualified. This isn’t looking good…
FO&O’s song is quite catchy after a while, I think they’ll qualify DTF to be fair. Robin will also be DTF.
Jasmine’s song is my favourite however I have a feeling it’s gonna be AC for her. Then the last spot is literally up for grabs between Owe, Bella and Filippa and Anton.

Still praying that Krista will go through though.

OK , it looks like this will be the weakest semi. I just remembered how Dinah Nah- One More Night was robbed. If she was in this semifinal she would go direct to final with no suspect. But here is a question for you : how do they choose which songs will be participate which semifinals at Melodifestivalen?

Shockingly, here is my revised list:
1. Owe Thornqvist! [I love this!]
2. Jasmine Kara
3. Anton Hagman
4. Bella & Filipa [better than I thought]
5. Krista Siegfrieds
6. FO&O
7. Robin F-bomb Bengtsson

Did I just seriously pur the two favourites last – Yes! Because they disappointed me, that’s why.
That Boogieman Blues song is great! The switch to English towards the end, and the key change; it all works for me! 🙂

I hope it will be a walk in the park for Loreen <3 next week even though it's going to be different from Euphoria. Loreen is so talented and a talanted songwriter as well and she's had a her say in "Statements". I want next week to come already! Please don't dissapoint! Maybe I have my hopes way too high? I don't care so much about these..
