The winner was…| La ganadora fue…


A month and few days has passed since the 5th victory of Sweden in Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and here is a Little review of what I live during the Loreen path to her victory! ;)

Un mes y pocos días han pasado desde la 5a Victoria de Suecia en el Festival de la Canción de Eurovision 2012 y aquí, hay un pequeño recuento de lo que vivió Loreen en su camino a la victoria! ;)


FEBRUARY | FEBRERO 2, 2012. VÄXJÖ REHEARSAL FOR THE 1ST SEMI FINAL OF MELODIFESTIVALEN
She got me since then, I just wanted to hear all the song as soon as it was possible, in fact, was the first I got of this year MF. 
Me atrapó desde ese momento, simplemente quise escuchar toda la canción tan pronto estuviera disponible, de hecho, fue la primera canción que conseguí del MF de este año. 


FEBRUARY | FEBRERO 4, 2012: MELODIFESTIVALEN DELTÄVLING 1, VÄXJO.
Since this sequence, I just felt this year it would be the Swedish Year and their 5th Victory no matter what! *Goosebumps after the #HejaSverige*
Desde esta secuencia, solo sentí que este año sería el Año de la 5a Victoria Sueca, sin importar nada! *Se me puso la piel de gallina después del grito de "Heja Sverige"*

"AMAZING AND PERFECT", the two words she earned after her performance from my lips, and the feeling of "I think, I'm watching the winner of both Melodifestivalen and Eurovision" just got my mind. 
"SORPRENDENTE Y PERFECTA" Las dos palabras que se ganó después de su presentación de mis labios, y el sentimiento de "Creo que estoy viendo a la ganadora de Melodifestivalen y Eurovision" sólo pasó por mi mente. 

FEBRUARY | FEBRERO 25, 2012: DELTÄVLING 4.
After 3 Semis, I just could see one winner and two songs that maybe could place well in the final in Globen, but as all the Swedes and the Fans of Melodifestivalen, we were waiting for Danny, Charlotte, Lotta & Christer Sjörgren and the Surprise, of course. 
Después de 3 semis, y sólo poder ver un ganador posible, y dos canciones que tal vez, podrían quedar bien en la final de Globen, pero como todos los suecos y fans del Mello, estabamos esperando a Danny, Charlotte, Lotta & Christer Sjörgren, y la posible sorpresa. 

Well, he did the best he could, but for me, it wasn't enough, my heart and mind was full of "Euphoria" and despite I like "Amazing" as song, my fav was still "Euphoria" till the end of MF ;p - The Surprise was to see winning the ticket to the final to the Amazing Lisa Miskovsky and her lovely song. 
Bueno el hizo lo mejor que pudo, pero para mi, no fue suficiente, mi corazón y mente estaban llenos de "Euphoria" y a pesar de que me gusta "Amazing" como canción, mi favorita todavía era "Euphoria" hasta el final del MF - La sorpresa y grata, fue la de ver pasar a Lisa Miskovsky a la final. 

MARCH | MARZO 3, 2012: ANDRA CHANSEN, ANOTHER THREAT TO LOREEN
He bacame for me the 3rd possible threat to Loreen's victory in ther path to ESC, because I felt he could do something like Caroline Aff Ugglas did back in 2009. 
Se convirtió en la 3a amenaza posible para la victoria de Loreen, en su camino a ESC, porque sentí que podría hacer algo parecido a lo que hizo Caroline Aff Ungglas en 2009.

MARCH | MARZO 10, 2012: GLOBEN FINAL
Despite she wasn't at her 100% of health, she did an amazing job in her last chance, placed in the unpopular 6 in the final draw but when the victory is your star, no matter what happens, what is meant to be, it's yours. 
A pesar de que no estaba del todo bien en cuánto a su salud, hizo un excelente trabajo en su última oportunidad, ocupó el poco agradable 6 de salida pero cuándo la victoria es tu estrella, no importa lo que pase, lo que va a ser para ti, es tuyo. 

AND THE JURY VOTING | LA VOTACIÓN DEL JURADO - SWEDISH TELEVOTING | TELEVOTO SUECO.

THE WINNER... "LOREEN AND EUPHORIA"
Y Sólo era el comienzo | And just was the beginning...

TWO MONTHS LATER
Arriving to Baku as the Hot Favourite to win, but her in her humbleness, just had fun of ESC like everybody, and did what she love the most, music.
(May 16th, 2012)
A lot of critics after her first rehearsal, but why did she give the best in a rehearsal?
Mucha crítica después de su primer ensayo, pero por qué tenía que dar lo mejor en su primer ensayo?
(Mayo 19th, 2012)

I was a little scared because of her dress, I must say, but it wasn't that bad, it gave it a little more of drama to the already original performance. 
Me daba un poco de pavor el vestido, debo decir, pero no estaba tan mal, le daba un poco más de drama a su ya original presentación. 

THE BIG THREAT IN SEMIFINAL 1
the Big Threat without any doubt of Swedish "Euphoria" were the Russian Grannies, one of my favs, but not to win. I love all of them, mostly the little one; Nataliya. They were also the favs for Loreen, because in a interview she said that they are just like her, love the music and what they do, to sing on a stage. They won the Semi final 1. 
Sin duda, la gran amenaza de la "Euphoria" sueca eran las Abuelas Rusas, una de mis favoritas tambien, pero no para que ganasen. Las amo a todas, pero en especial a la más chica; Nataliya. Ellas eran las favoritas de Loreen, que porque ellas eran como ella, aman lo que hacen y cuándo se montan a un escenario es a hacer lo que les gusta, contar. Contra todo pronóstico, ellas se ganaron la primera semifinal. 


SECOND SEMIFINAL OF EUROVISION 
Sharing the same Semifinal with one of other hot favourites to win the Serbian Željko Joksimović 


Maybe a little boycotted the sound because of her visit to the "Democracy ONG" but she had the Star of the 5th Swedish Victory and she reached the final despite the 11 place, an either good or bad number. But guess what, she won that Semi! ;)
Tal vez algo boicoteado su sonido por lo de su visita a la ONG "Democracy" pero ella tenía la estrella de la 5a victoria Sueca y no solo alcanzó la final, sino que ganó la Semifinal. ;)

FINAL REHEARSALS
(May 25, 2012)
You have to read the description box of this video, everyone was looking for the fail of Loreen, and as she just got in a snow fake ball in her throat and cogh, the ones who don't want her winnig took that like her big fall. 
Tienen que leer la descripción de este video, todo el mundo le buscaba la caida a Loreen y como se atora con una de la bolitas de nieve falta en su garganta y tose, los que no la querían ver ganar, lo tomaron como la gran caida. 

MAYO | MAY 26TH EUROVISION SONG CONTEST - GRAND FINAL
One of the best performances of the night and the most original in the last 57th editions of the ESC.... A bit overreacted (perhaps not)! XD 
Una de las mejores presentaciones de la noche y la más original en las últimas 57 ediciones de ESC.... Algo exagerado (tal vez no)! XD

TIME FOR THE VOTING.

I felt Loreen was gonna get a great amount of points because her song was focus in both the Televoters and the Jury, but I never thought, she would become the second artist most voted in the whole event, just surpassed by Alexander Rybak's 387 pts. I was the MOST HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD with her 372 pts, so deserved.  Voted by 40 of 41 countries, Sweden didn't watch by the Italian voters or juries.  Who cares, she got 18 sets of 12 points anyways, 2 more than Rybak ;)
Sentí que Loreen iba a obtener una gran cantidad de votos porque su canción tenía los ingredientes para ello, pues iba tanto para el Televoto como para el Jurado, en cuánto a gusto y técnica vocal, pero nunca pensé que se convertiría en el segundo artista más votado en todo el festival, sólo superada por los 387 puntos de Alexander Rybak 387. Yo fui la PERSONA MÁS FELIZ DEL MUNDO con sus 372 pts, tan merecidos. Votada por nada más y nada menos que 40 de los 41 país, Suecia no fue vista por los votantes o los jurados Italianos. Qué importa, de todos modos, obtuvo 18 veces 12 puntos, 2 más que Rybak. ;)

AND THE WINNER WAS... | LA GANADORA FUE....

Y Finalmente lo que ví en aquella primera semifinal del Melodifestivalen 2012 se hizo realidad y Loreen le daba la tan anhelada y merecida Quinta Victoria a mi querida y amada Suecia en Eurovision. 
And Finally what I watched mentally in the First semifinal of the Melodifestivalen 2012 came true and Loreen rose the Fifth Prize and the most deserved Victory (in 13 years) to Sweden in Eurovision.

NEXT YEAR IN SWEDEN.... MOST LIKELY STOCKHOLM OR MALMÖ ;)

HEJA LOREEN OCH HEJA SVERIGE!!!! 

This is just the first step of Loreen, I just hope she release a GREAT album soon and become the WORLDWIDE STAR She deserves to be, because of her talent, but mostly because of being the nicest girl I can read each time I hear her speaking. 

(They both were the best! ;))

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 …
