Tusse Voices Melodifestivalen 2021

All 28 Melodifestivalen 2021 entries officially became available to purchase and stream last weekend. And as usual, the contest has flooded Sweden’s official single chart.

The latest Sverigetopplistan top 100 published on Friday 5 March features a total of 22 songs from the country’s Eurovision selection process.

Of these, three have broken the top 10, with Tusse being the highest-charting finalist.

Melodifestivalen 2021 in the charts

Tusse enters the chart at #8 with “Voices”. However, he’s not the highest place Melfest act. That honour goes to Emil Assergård and “Om allting skiter sig”. Despite being eliminated in semi-final three, Emil currently sits at #7 in the chart, climbing from #21. However, it should be noted that the chart runs from Friday to Thursday. This means that Emil enjoyed a lead of almost two days over Tusse. As with all the direct finalists, “Voices” was only commercially released after semi-final four on Saturday night.

Even though he was dominating the Spotify charts earlier in the week, Eric Saade must make do with #10 in the overall chart.

The only other Melodifestivalen act to crack the top 20 is WAHL feat Sami. They too were eliminated earlier in the competition. “90-talet” sits at #15. 

You can check out the full chart positions of Melodifestivalen 2021 acts below.

The reason that Tusse and even Emil are up there is because their songs grows, they sing them well and they have songs that can be played on repeat several times.
Eric on the other hand has a modern song but man you get so tired of it after 2-3 listens and the fact that the dude doesn’t have any good vocals makes it even worse. Sure I still want Eric to win Melodifestivalen but I will not listen to his song because I am already tired of it haha.

I’m rooting for Eric, seriously. The song is catchy, the staging is very original and he has an amazing stage presence. It could do very well at Eurovision. This contest is about show. I don’t get the hype with Tusse and I’m hoping he doesn’t get high with juries (I don’t dislike the song, but I don’t think he will stand out at ESC…).

If I must be more specific (as if anyone cares) about why I like the SONG is the rythm. The verses and the repeat of a “million voices” in the chorus has such a nice rythm and is such an ear worm. And when performed it gets elevated by the performance. A sob story is not why I like it.

What you do on stage and how you interact with people infront of the camera is so much of an importance. If you are left cold and the artist is not liked then it can turn really bad. Benjamin and Robin was to much like robots imo and cringy at times. I really supported Eric with Popular ha ha, but in some odd way his voice has gotten worse and worse. How is that possible? Now it’s so bad that I can’t enjoy Every minute as much as I would like to. I think Eric could go the same way… Read more »

I really hope Tusse doesn’t win Melfest. He’ll end up being Benjamin Ingrosso 2.0 (doing well with juries but then getting crucified by televoters) if he goes to Eurovision. Sweden would be much better off sending either Eric Saade, Dotter, or The Mamas to Eurovision. All three of them have much stronger songs and would give Sweden a much better Eurovision result than Tusse. (Dotter is my personal favorite and I think she’ll do incredibly well with both Eurovision televoters and juries)

I agree with everything you just said, but I just want to emphasize I *do like* Tusse himself. He seems really nice and I would want him to compete with a stronger song. Voices is a decent. Actually, it’s much less bland than what Estonia will likely pick tomorrow. Still, both Sweden and Tusse can do even better.

What’s similar between Tusse and Benjamin? Their songs and performance couldn’t be more opposite. We can’t know how Tusse would do with televote or juries yet.
Benjamin had special stage and was him doing moves for 3 minute. Eric is more close to that if we compare to this Melfest

I’m not hoping for Tusse to win, but there’s no way he’ll do as bad as Benjamin with the televote. Benjamin came off really aloof and borderline arrogant in the staging, and a fair amount of viewers were confused as to whether he was in the same space as everyone. Tusse is a lot more approachable and the song itself is more anthemic – he’d probably finish mid table with the televote.

I really liked Benjamin in 2018 but I have think the fact that people didn’t know if he was on the same stage as the other acts and how he was on his own didn’t sit well wtih televoters.

I actually liked quite a few entries in this year’s Melfest. The obvious ”full package” for ESC would be Dotter – she sings well, her song has a strong message, the staging is well done (totally unrelated to the message, though, but I’m not complaining much) and she gives me the vibes of someone who could do well with both the juries and the televote. Tusse has a decent, well executed inspirational mid-tempo power ballad, but come on, it’s basically on the same level as Jessica Andersson’s song of similar characteristics. It’s good, but not great.

Tusse is a very talented guy and his story is very emotional indeed. His song, also, is not very bad but he definitely can do much better if we think about how beautiful his voice is and his stage presence. Even though Dandi Dansa is my favourite song, I think Sweden will do better in eurovision if they send Eric or after him Dotter or Mamas. About Eric, everything about his entry is not limited to eurovision- standars so he will probably stand out. Plus Popular is a very famous eurovision act so random people who watch eurovision could remember… Read more »

I will probably get a lot of thumbs down for this opinion however I can’t help but want Sweden to vote for Danny Saucedo with “Dandi Dansa” to go to Eurovision. I won’t lie it has been a grower since the first time I heard the song. There is something about the song which I find very catchy and you can’t deny his whole performance at Melodifestivalen is first class plus his personality shines in this song. I also think it would be awesome to see a Swedish language song be at Eurovision for the first time since 1998. I… Read more »

I would absolutely happy if Dotter did go to Eurovision because it is a very well written song and it is placed number two in my Melodifestivalen song however I have to be honest I’m not really a fan of Eric song because the part he keep repeating “Oh Nanananana” does get on my nerves but I do think he is a good music artist but I think his song let him down. Funny enough I think “Sting” was a criminal underrated song however it was up against some tough songs that year.

Here is an upvote (I personally try to avoid downvotes unless someone is just writing something nasty).

As for Danny, I’ve also found myself singing it to myself over and over again. Personally I would love to see Danny finally go to Eurovision. While I don’t think this is his year, I’m fully in support of a Swedish language song at Eurovision (I wish all countries made more of an effort to send their own national language songs to the contest, but I understand that it isn’t as appealing for viewers).

I totally agree with you about Danny and countries sending songs in their own language to Eurovision. When it comes to Danny song then I personally think it has this memorable hook to the song and it does make you want to toe tap to the beat of the song which has to be a good sign. When it comes to countries sending songs in their own languages then I would definitely champion that idea because hearing singers sing in their fluent language can sound absolutely sensational because you feel their emotions plus sometimes when songs are translated and sung… Read more »

I really wish this song didn’t feel like a washed down version of “Human” cause Tusse absolutely deserves a better song.

I’m kinda rooting for him to not win this year, come back in following years and win then with a much better song. It’s pretty common for Melfest to work like that anyways and I wish him the best either ways, as much as I wish this wasn’t the song he’d win with.

I think Tusse is a fantastic performer, and he is an amazing vocalist. With that said, the song is distinctly average and is the sort of song that would score 50 points on the televote and would just get lost. I’m personally rooting for Dotter and Eric Saade, I’m not ruling The Mama’s out yet either!

As a swede, I can say That the only thing who could stop Tusse from going to Rotterdam is the juries. Tusse is known from Swedish Idol, where he won, so he is not unknown for the swedish public. I find “Voices” decent but I think Tusse is better than the song itself. Here is the main reason why Sweden will pick Tusse: They like HIM. In The semifinal, where he qualified for the final, he basically told us his lifestory.

Bra sammanfattning. Min bild är att svenskarna föredrar Tusse. Dotter tävlar inte mot elva andra bidrag. Hon tävlar mot Bulletprof. Artister som haft ett succebidrag har svårt när de kommer tillbaka nära inpå. Tänker på Ace Wilder, Mariett, Yohio mfl. När artisterna kommit med nya låtar så blir besvikelsen stor om det inte låter likadant typ. Synd för dotter. Hon skulle ha störst chans i ESC tror jag och har flest internationella fans.

Thanks for this explanation! It makes better sense to me now. Part of me does feel sympathetic towards Tusse. Who doesn’t like it when the underdog overcomes adversity and the odds to land on top.

On the other hand, I do wish he came with a different song, and one he also participated in writing at least. This is no hate to him. Tusse is talented and Voices is certainly not a bad song, but I’d like to see something stronger from him – but that is just my opinion.

Again, most winners win because they touch our hearts. Like Bergendahl in 2010. Or Lundvik. Dark songs cant touch our hearts and thats what Swedes look for in winners.

The only entry I see doing well at Eurovision is Dotter’s. The rest would flop either with the jury or with the televoting, if not both.

My top 5 out of the remaining acts:

  1. Dotter
  2. Charlotte
  3. Klara Hammarstrom
  4. Anton Ewald
  5. The Mammas

Eric’s act is the most pretentious thing I have seen from Sweden since Benjamin Ingrosso.

Kidding. In all seriousness, I find it truly interesting how Tusse appears to be a fair bit more popular than Eric Saade and Dotter in Sweden, whereas these last two seem to appeal more to an international/Eurovision fans. His song is not bad of course, it is not my personal favourite, but I wonder why ‘Voices’ is so popular there.

Personally, I’ll be cheering on Dotter from the sidelines, but I send positive vibes to whoever wins Melodifestivalen this year.

It’s like Dotter can do no wrong and yet they’ll still do her wrong. I love ‘Bulletproof’ more now than I did a year ago. It’s the only Swedish 2020 song that stood the test of time.

I think Voices is good, but there are seriously like 4 better options imo (Dotter and Eric Saade, and than also Paul Rey, Danny Saucedo, even the Mamas).. like what is the hype about Tusse? I don’t get it, he is not even famous, so what is so special about the entry ahah?.. don’t know. I still think Sweden could do lower top 10 with Tusse, but like why do that when you can do top 5 with Eric and Dotter.

If Tusse is not that famous and still Voices is doing well and people like and connect to him.. might mean something.
As always, fandom is one thing, locals is another. And jury is another.
