Sweden didn’t win the Eurovision Song Contest this year either, even though we were in first place for a while during the voting. But Eric Saade ended up in third place (which could have been a second place if Italy hadn’t passed us with the final country voting) – and that is Sweden’s best result since we won in 1999! Really well done, Saade!
(Svenska) “Mysteriet på Greveholm” får uppföljare
(Svenska) 1996 sändes en av tidernas mest omtyckta julkalendrar på tv, en av mina personliga favoriter: Mysteriet på Greveholm. För den som inte vet vad det är, så handlar det om en familj på fem personer som hyr ett slott på landet att fira jul i. Det blir en minst sagt annorlunda decembermånad. Gissa om jag blev glad när jag nu fick höra att det kommer en uppföljare!
The Winner of Let’s Dance
“Let’s Dance” is over, and the winner of the season is Jessica Andersson. She was well worth it. I think she has improved so much during these months.
We Have A Winner!
It was thrilling to the very end! Who would win the Swedish Song Contest 2011? It turned out to be between the teengirl favourites Danny and Eric Saade – just as I guessed. Personally I crossed my fingers for Eric, so I was definitely happy when he won!I liked that the line-up was so diverse. Anything from Swedish folkmusic style to europop. Here are my comments about the songs:
The Second Chance
All finalists for the Swedish Song Contest have been chosen! The final two are Sara Varga and The Moniker. It will be interesting to see the final next Saturday!
Let’s Dance Has Soon Reached Its End
It’s getting more and more exciting. Now there are so few competitors left and I think all of them do a good job, most of the time. It’s difficult to decide who is most worthy of winning! But my favourite tonight was definitely Alexander Rybak – his charleston was the best dance of the evening, according to me.
Fourth Part of the Contest
Hadn’t Linda Bengtzing advanced to the finals tonight, something would have been very strange about the whole contest. So far she has always been part of the finals of the Swedish Song Contest, and this year won’t be an exception. Her song is as fresh and happy-sounding as always, and it was my favourite from tonight’s round.
Third Part of the Contest
This part of the contest was the one I had most looked forward to, and I wasn’t disappointed! My favourite in advance, Eric Saade, advanced to the finals (not at all unexpected), thank Heavens!
Second Part of the Contest
Tonight’s songs were better than last week’s. Brolle and Sanna Nielsen advanced to the finals. Hardly unexpected, and they were also my personal favourites so I’m happy. But I don’t agree about who advanced to the second chance and who were eliminated.
First Part of the Contest
The Swedish Song Contest has started again. But I must say I was a little disappointed. The songs were not as good as I hoped they would be. The only song I thought was really good was “Something in Your Eyes” with Jenny Silver. Hopefully there will be better songs next week.
