Tonight I actually stayed up and watched the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. The show was nice, but then, I haven’t watched so many movie awards to compare with… Anyway, both “New Moon” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” were nominated in many categories, and the showed pieces from the coming movie “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1″!
As usual, my whole family watched the Eurovision Song Contest together this year. I thought there were relatively many good songs participating this year, compared to what it’s usually like. The song from Belarus was only okay – even though they had Robert Wells. My favorites were Denmark, Turkey, Germany, Romania and Ukraine.
The game is on! Tonight it’s Sweden versus Norway in “Så ska det låta”! I’m sorry, but tonight I will abandon Sweden and cheer on Alexander Rybak and Maria Haukaas Storeng from Norway…
The Swedish Song Contest is over for this year. And as usual one of the worst songs won. I don’t get it – why does always the worst song win when there are so many good songs?! Whatever, now I look forward to Eric Saade’s summer tour instead!
Yesterday the Swedish Song Contest started again. Joking hosts, girls in short short skirts (and yesterday there were even a few that didn’t have that much on them…), a mixture of genres, glitter, and everything else that belongs in the contest. I had three favourites and all of them advanced in some way.
Finally! On February 5th at 8 pm, “The Legend of the Seeker” starts airing on Swedish TV6 – and they start if off with a double episode! Two hours of Richard, Kahlan, Zedd and all the others. I first heard about the series a couple of months ago, when I had almost finished reading the series “The Sword of Truth”, which the tv series is based on. Of course I am really curious what it will be like on television, fans of Terry Goodkind have given it both good and bad reviews…
My Sundays are saved – there’ll be a new season of “Bones”! It’s my second favourite criminal series, after “Midsomer Murders”.
The Europe Music Awards yesterday evening/night was fantastic. Many great bands, many worthy winners. Best of all: Tokio Hotel won the only award they were nominated for – Best Group.
I’ve been sitting in front of the TV the whole afternoon and evening. First I watched the long documentary movie about The Jacksons, then I watched the memorial ceremony at Staples Center, and now I’m watching the end of the concert they’re broadcasting. It’s also available on DVD, I think I’ll buy it some day. It still feels unreal that Michael Jackson isn’t around anymore.
Of course we stayed up to watch the Eurovision Song Contest this year too. It’s one of the must-do’s of the year! The line-up was okay. As expected, the Swedish entry didn’t do well at all. But what is there to say about the Norwegian entry? Pure musical joy, energy, charisma! That’s definately my favourite!
