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!
Eric Saade has released the dates for his summer tour, “Made Of POP”. I think I could get to Eskilstuna, and maybe even Munkedal. I’ll have to wait and see how the summer turns out to be. Here are all the tour dates:
I realized I haven’t posted my videos from Eric Saade’s signing session in Eskilstuna yet, so here they are! “Still Loving It”, “It’s Gonna Rain” and “Popular”.
Today I went to Eskilstuna to see Eric Saade. It took me almost half an hour to find a spot where I could park my car – there were so many people! It was so crowded inside the mall, it was so bad! And the children and youths weren’t the worst in there, rather their parents who were going to find the best spot for their own children, at any cost… Good rolemodels?? But the short performance was really good, Eric is always good on stage! And at the signing afterwards I took the chance to wish him good luck in the Eurovision Song Contest!
Eric Saade will be going on a mini tour in parts of Sweden to meet his fans and sign his new cd single “Popular”. He will also sing three songs. Here are all the dates:
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:
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!
I won tickets for the Twilight Fan Event in Stockholm, so I was there yesterday. What an experience! The bands that played during the evening were in the range of okay to good. It was fun that they played both own songs and covers from the movie soundtracks.
I had a standing ticket. But I only stood in line for a few hours, from 1 pm. So I didn’t get to the front in the arena. At first I tried to get close to the catwalk part of the stage, but I realized I couldn’t see anything at all from there… I stood farther back instead – less crowded and a better view!
But the main event of the evening was the Q&A session with Kristen and Taylor. They wrote a lot of autographs and took photos with the fans who stood by the red carpet.
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.
Here are my best photos and videos from the show and signing session at Mitt i City in Karlstad yesterday.
