Eurovision 2012: Sweden | Suecia


SUECIA – “EUPHORIA” – LOREEN (SF2-11)
La amo, me atrapó desde que vi y escuché su minuto de ensayo, el pasado 2 de Febrero. Simplemente me pareció genial la puesta en escena y el sonido. Creo que es la canción más balanceada que tiene este año el festival, es una canción tanto para la gente, como para el jurado.  Luego el 4 de Febrero, en Växjö me quedé como la mayoría de los Suecos, con ganas de volverla a ver y escuchar, pues tanto fue que ganó rotundamente el “Melodifestivalen” y es una de las favoritas a llevarse el “Microfono de Cristal”, a uno de los países festivaleros por naturaleza y que siento que merece enormemente un triunfo pronto.
Suecia partirá por primera vez en su historia en la casilla 11ª de una semifinal y va después de la balada balcánica algo somnífera de Croacia y antes de la terrible canción de Georgia.

SWEDEN – “EUPHORIA” – LOREEN (SF2 -11)
I love it, it wrapped me since the first minute of rehearsal, last Thursday, 2 of February. It was simply amazing and perfect, the best act I’ve ever seen in a “Melodifestivalen” stage, and the sounding was just the right one. Then, the 4 of Feburary in Växjö, I was like the rest of Swedes “wanting see her again, singing and dancing” It was that feeling invading so badly the Swedes senses that She won “melodifestivalen” without any doubt and today, it’s one of the hot favourites to win the “Crystal Mic” of Eurovision 2012. I think it's the most balanced song in this year ESC, a song that fits in both tastes Jury and Public. Sweden is one of the countries that love the most the Music Festivals and it deserves a sooner victory.
Sweden will start for the first time in its ESC history in 11th place, in a semifinal of course, and that will happen after the snooze ballad from Croatia and before the terrible song from Georgia, in the second semifinal next May 24th.

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 …
