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!
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!
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.
My Thoughts About Eurovision Song Contest 2010
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 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!
It’s That Time of the Year Again
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.
