    1. Excellence - Last To Know (2002)

    A great song which sounded like Steps never went away but let down by a shockingly bad live vocal.

    2. Afrodite - Never Let It Go (2002)

    Sweden's :disco: 2002 ESC entry - still :disco: even now.

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/OiMr8z5syD8&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/OiMr8z5syD8&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    3. Cosmo 4 - What's Your Name? (2007)

    I still cannot work out how this didn't qualify - one of the best girl groups and songs to enter MF.

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/pDO9arpRU-c&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/pDO9arpRU-c&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    4. Face 84 - Alla Gamla X (2008)

    A good song but completely overshadowed by Caracola that year.

    <object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/b-NKCcPnEM0&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/b-NKCcPnEM0&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>

    5. Caracola - Smiling In Love (2008)

    Yellow, green and orange H&M dresses, spinning catherine wheels and a cute dance routine - what's not to like?

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/MjEFU9Z9EuI&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/MjEFU9Z9EuI&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    6. Timoteij - Kom (2010)

    The new girl group that has done that only Afrodite has done from this list - made it to Globen.

    I saw Cosmo4 live in that Gothenburg heat.

    It was so frustrating being surrounded by Swedes going crazy for the Ark and that bespectacled guitar teacher woman, when Cosmo4 and Regina Lund were there.

    I'm not sure why they needed five members.

    The woman with the curly red hair in yesterday's show. Was she one of the Alcazar writers? Is she a Caracola?

    In the poll I had a Sophie's Choice over Cosmo 4 and Caracola but I went for Cosmo 4 in the end as their performance was fierce.

    09 Excellence - Last to Know (for the song, not the performance)
    09 Afrodite - Never Let It Go
    11 Cosmo 4 - What's Your Name?
    08 Face 84 - Alla Gamla X
    10 Caracola - Smiling In Love
    10 Timoteij - Kom

    10 Excellence - Last to Know (10 for the recorded :disco:, 3 for the live version :manson: so it does not win my rate)
    09 Afrodite - Never Let It Go (Fabulous :disco:, almost a 10)
    10 Cosmo 4 - What's Your Name? (No justice that this didn't qualify OR WIN THE WHOLE SHEBANG!).
    05 Face 84 - Alla Gamla X :bored:
    02 Caracola - Smiling In Love (sorry MBK/RB!)
    08 Timoteij - Kom (Live version was nice and all, but I reckon the recorded version is gonna KILL - cannot wait!!).

    Timbo, you just need to see me, MBK and the other Caracola boy performing Smiling In Love to make you love it. We worked out we've performed it in more countries than the real Caracola.

    Were there really no girl groups in the 2003 to 2005 contests?

    Apart from Afro-dite's second entry.

    In answer to what's my fave, I'm torn between Cosmo4 and Caracola. I think it's too early to be totally objective about Timoteij.

    I was going to put after my Caracola rate: '(but it's still my ambition to see you both perform your routine someday :disco:)'.

    The trouble with Caracola for me is that I kept thinking "But it's not Cosmo 4..... poor Cosmo 4" and 'Smiling In Love' could do NOTHING to pull me out of my C4 mourning :(

    I can't believe I've had TWO musical disagreements with MBK this weekend :o.

    THE WORLD IS ENDING

    Obviously we have disturbed you from mulling over your vote in this topic.

    I'm guessing it's going to be Face 84 for 'our David'?

    While we are on the subject of girl groups even the Norweigan and Danish MGP has given us two great girl groups:

    Velvet Inc - Tricky (2009)

    Probably the closest a girl group has got to recreating Cosmo 4.

    Sukkerchok- Kamper for karlighed (2010)

    One of the best entries from a National selection from this year.
