She’ll compete in the second semi-final of Melodifestivalen 2018 on February 10 with the song “In My Cabana”.

And our readers are definitely excited to find out what’s in there, as they have voted her the contestant they are most looking forward to seeing perform.

We launched our poll back on December 1, and have counted a total of 6,855 votes since then. Margaret won the day with 1,451 votes — or nearly 22% of all those cast.

Cabanas — those huts or cabins that provide shelter at the beach or swimming pool — frequently feature scantily-clad ladies and gents. Will that dictate the vibe of the song?

“I’m really, really excited,” she told wiwiblogger Kevin back in November. “It’s a great opportunity for me to perform my song ‘In My Cabana’ — and it’s a really cool song.”

“It’s a sexy song. It’s cocky, a little bit. It’s just about having fun and [isn’t concerned with] all the problems and saving lives and saving the world. Those three minutes…phew…it’s all good.”

In second place is Mimi Werner, who last appeared in Melodifestivalen back in 2016 with the country-tinged number “Ain’t No Good”. She was eliminated in her semi-final.

But it appears that appearance only whet our readers’ appetite, as they handed her 1,333 votes — around 19% — proving that her momentum hasn’t slowed.

The only other act to earn more than 1,000 votes is two-time veteran Mariette, the bookies pre-contest favourite to take the Melodifestivalen crown. She earned 1,019 votes — or just under 15%.

Melfest debutants Edward Blom and Dotter round out the top 5, nabbing more than 6% of the vote each.

He’s a television personality known for his love of food, who released his Christmas (food) single “Nu Lagar Vi Julen”  and had the viral hit “När Man Festar Festar Man”. She’s a singer-songwriter — full name Johanna “Dotter” Jansson — who made her Melfest debut in 2017 as one of the songwriters behind Mariette’s entry “A Million Years”.

That is the same Margaret who managed to butcher the song which had put Poland on top of the Eurovision odds even before the national selection? Some people just don’t realize when it’s their time to go.

YES! I can’t wait for her Cabana! Margaret stated in several Polish interviews that she does not intend to win as she only wants to participate in Melfest, and not the actual Eurovision. And if that is her wish I can’t do more than to respect it, however, I can’t help but wish to see Margaret on the Eurovision stage, winning, like she was supposed to in 2016. The odds would be on her side, as someone already pointed out that each act in the past few years performing in the 2nd half of the second semi ended up winning… Read more »
