Melodifestivalen 2012 Review: Deltävling 3


Leksands Deltävling was held last Saturday and these were the results of that amazing Semi final, in this Swedish city ;)

02. MARIA BENHAJJI – “I MINA DRÖMMAR” R/= LAST PLACE
Beautiful song and very well performed by the only fact that was a webbjoker it plays against it, since the webbjoker contest was created, none of its winners has reached the Andra or the Final spot, that’s sad, the only near of that was Julie Alvgard when she placed 6th last year in 4 semi final. Let’s see the Maria BenHajji’s career develop a little more and she could come back and advance a little more ;)

05. CAROLINA WALLIN PÉREZ – “SANNINGEN” R/= 7TH PLACE
I don’t know what it happens with the Latin names in Melodifestivalen, since long time ago, I can’t find an act qualified in a final with a Latin Last Name, well maybe Danny Saucedo counts XD (so the answer would be, since last year hahaha) I like this song, I thought it would be one of the chosen ones, but she only can get 7th place. L

04. LOVE GENERATION – JUST A LITTLE BIT.  R/= 6 TH
Love Generation had not enough of love and “just a little bit” of votes were received by them, these 3 girls did a good job on stage, the song was good, but not enough for a final or an “Andra Chansen”, I don’t feel any connection with the song like it happened last year, not this year the song wasn’t that surprising like they were with their song “Dance Alone”. RedOne, you don’t have the formula for your own country; keep on conquering the rest of the world! XD

03. MATTIAS ANDRÉASSON – FÖRLÅT MIG. R/= 5 TH
According to the bookmarkers, he was 6th, but he defeated Love Generation and got the 5th place, he really did a good performance, but the song wasn’t enough for a ticket in the “Andra Chansen”, even though, it’s a good song to hear, he has a nice voice, but have him in the final would have worked for the Danny’s aspirations to win this year Melodifestivalen, you know, because of the fans of E.M.D. they would have been divided, so few votes for both, but now, Danny has a clear road to win… if the song deserves it, I’ll be happy, but if it doesn’t, I won’t!!!

ANDRA CHANSEN QUALIFIERS.

06. ANDREAS JOHNSON – LOVELIGHT. R/= 4 TH PLACE

It’s a cherry up song, as per usual from Andreas, he has made a good song, I love it since I heard the minute rehearsal. I think he can have big chance to be in the final… c’mon, we need a traditional cool vibe song in the final, even though it places 9th or so. XD

01. YOUNGBLOOD – YOUNGBLOOD. R/= 3TH PLACE

I’d personally prefer to have Mattias Andréasson instead of these guys, they are a kinda update “Back street boys” but that formula is a kind of old-fashioned and a kinda annoying. The song, and the group didn’t get me at all, I don’t like them, Mattias or even Love Generation would have been a better option, but the Swedes chosen and they were the ones.

TILL GLOBEN QUALIFIERS.

08. BJÖRN RANELID FEAT SARA LI – MIRAKEL. R/= 2ND PLACE

This song either you love it or hate it, many of my melodifestivalen’s friends or lover tend to hate it, I personally found it sort of interesting, but it’s clear to me that that song would be the last one in the final, ok, the man can be important in Sweden, but c’mon, can you imagine that song in Baku… hell not! Sweden nowadays, in the final list has great songs to send one like this.

07. MOLLY SANDÉN – WHY AM I CRYING? R/= WINNER.

She was GREAT!!! Molly has grown both as a woman and as a singer, her voice has grown, she has now a great chance to win even Melodifestivalen itself. Today, only Loreen can fight with her against that place, the other songs in the final are not enough strong, but Loreen’s is greater! I love Molly’s song and I hope she gets a top3 in the final ;). She really deserves it after her last place in 2009.

DELTÄVLING DATA:

TELEVOTING: 390.097 Votes
VIEWERS: 3.315.000 People.

Wow it was the least voted from the 3 ones.

From 1 to 8, in the official drawn of this heat or semi of the Melodi, the last 5 songs, were the best so far… ok no, I’m just kidding, all the songs has something, but you can find some more enjoyable and interesting than the others in this past semi.

Let’s see what it brings us the last semi final, with all those great names and promising give us a lots of great songs that is exactly what we need at this point of this not so good melodifestivalen, but neither that bad show, this year. But I think it could have been better, maybe, the last year edition, where I could find so many great songs… That’s all

Carpe Diem ;)

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before all the Lights Get On (1s Part)

It's Eurovision Time and there are tops on line from the whole world, well, sometimes I made mine, and this year, I've been working on that too. 
Here are the first delivery of what is my point of view according to the first listening and the song itself, let’s start this….


42. LITHUANIA
The singer has a great attitude and she can deliver a good version live of the song but the main problem is the buildup of the song itself, what is that?!


41. GEORGIA
I think she has one of the best voices of this year, the message of the song is good but I cannot stand the old-fashioned of this song, maybe if it had had some modern instrumentation it would work much better at first listening.


40. ISRAEL
Most of the fans are going to hate me, but I cannot find a gap in this song, I know it’s an up-tempo and he has a nice voice but it wasn’t enough to captivate me at first. Maybe in rehearsals or in his semifinal will make me change my mind, but it’s still not my cup of tea.

39. ALBANIA
It’s too dram…

Eurovision 2017: My General top42 Before All the Lights Get On (3d Part)

I'm going to divide the last 14 places into two parts. Here are the places 14 to 8: 
14. NORWAY
Aleksandr Walmann has great vocals and JOWST one of the best mixes of the year. It will depend on what they have to performance it. I love the song and it was one of my favs from MGP this year.I’d like to see Aleksandr by himself in future too.


13. ESTONIA
Verona is a nice retro-eighties-song. Despite I cannot really find chemistry between the singers the song itself it’s really good.The risk will be in his vocals, Laura sings pretty well, but Koit could be penalized with his, I’m afraid. 


12. SWITZERLAND
Flawless voice and great live performance, I hope they can make a great show live using a good backdrop and nice graphics that helps to sell their song. Switzerland could be placing really well this year, a top10 for sure if they have all the ingredients ready.


11. NETHERLANDS
For 5th year in a row, The Netherlands sends a song I like since I hear at first time. I love the harmonies of the t…

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before All the Lights Get On (2nd Part)

I wanted to post my top42 before the rehearsals, I could not make it but I will post it before the Shows are broadcasted.
28. SWEDEN
I’m a Swedish lover, but I cannot build a bridge with Bengtsson’s song, I know he has a great live show but I cannot stand the song itself. For me is not a winner, nor a top10 for Sweden. Sorry Sweden for second year in a row I won’t be crossing my fingers for you, but I aware you’ll be in the final.

27. IRELAND
It’s a nice 90’s-early-00’s ballad song, but I did not feel in love with it at first listening, 7th time winner of Eurovision is still lost for my taste despite I love its entries back in 2010, 2014 and 2015 ;).

26. AUSTRALIA
After the amazing Dami Im I was a bit disappointed about this song once I heard it at first time, I kinda like it but without being my ultimate favorite, I like it but I will not regret if they did not get through the final.

25. CZECHIA
I like it since the first listening but being realistic, it has not a strong gap that makes you …
