    I wish Anna Bergendahl the best, but a sick part of me does kind of enjoy the idea of her winning and then NQing AGAIN in Tel Aviv. :D

    I very much doubt it. She apparently has one of the strongest songs and last time I looked she was favourite in the odds. Might not mean much but I doubt she’d come back if she was going to crash and burn.

    Looking good for Nano, Anna Bergendahl and John Lundvik, slightly less so for Wiktoria and Lisa Ajax.

    I’m here for Anna Bergendahl being QUITE GOOD, especially with G:son involved. Being sympathetic for once, it must take some nerve for her to be doing this again after THAT debacle

    Well either that or the money’s run out for rent and herring :(

    G:son's going to be UP and DOWN like a BLUE-ARSED FLY in Heat 1. Having involvement in four out of seven songs is A BIT MUCH, and I'd be willing to wager that three of those will qualify in some capacity.

    I guess having 4 G:son songs in the same heat is a way to prevent him from having half of the songs in the final. But still possible.

    I don’t think that’s a great draw for Nano at all. It didn’t help Sigrid Bernson.

    I can just imagine the headlines if he wins. Though he was never actually charged, was he?

    Anna still favourite to win at the moment.

    Anna in 7th probably reflects that she's the 'story' of the first semi. I'm still sceptical that she can top Nano, Mohombi and Wiktoria, but top four seems very do-able which would be a success for her really given how low her profile has been since 2010.

    I have a feeling Anna is going to do a Loreen 2017: going to Andra Chansen and losing against any random.

    I mean short of the fact I'd probably start with SIGRID BERNSON when it came to things that DIDN'T HELP SIGRID BERNSON, pretty much every show opener other than her and Molly P-H doing their best vocal impersonations of a CAT FUCKING A LANDMINE has made it to the final the last few years. And much as I'm sure I'm brushing on months of personal psychological horror here, he did WIN the televote in the final last time

    He only won the televote because the juries fucked Wiktoria over so people stopped voting for her because there was NO POINT as she was so far behind. Did anything ever come of those accusations made against him? I guess not if he's back in MF. Still, there's something very unsettling about him.

    And we all know the Molly P-H fiasko with the app with people not having the chance to download it in time before her song had even finished!

    He only got 200,000 fewer app votes than Frans and got the most votes out of all of them too in the heats. The counterfactual that Wiktoria would've definitely won the televote were it not for the juries isn't really convincing - it's not like that stopped the likes of YOHIO before, and I imagine it's pretty unlikely for the number of phone votes only happening after the juries to create a gap of 150k votes given that's not far off what could've got you top 3 alone in the phone vote years.

    I mean obviously it could all be different this year given the allegations (not that there's a chance in hell they'll say a thing about them - unless he's been completely redeemed in which case I imagine it'll go completely the other way), but I don't think it's all that easy to argue that Nano wasn't pretty popular in his own right in his year.

    Third place in heat 1 is a shock for Wiktoria, have they given up on her?

    Apparently:
    - Green star = Swedish text.
    - Red star = female songwriter(s).
    - Yellow = different.
    - Pink = female.
    - Different kind of blue/purple = male.

    Whatever you can make of that...

    Hopefully it’ll go into horrifying live auto suck mode to rid us of the lesser contestants :disco:

    I hope it actually is a hairdryer. Lighting that bright will do some of the older contestants no favours.

    New voting changes!!





    What do we think of this?

    I am glad the heart is changing because it has taken the excitement out of the semis the past few years, and this will also make it harder for the pretty twink boys to qualify just for being pretty twinks, regardless of the song or if they can even sing in tune. Maybe Arja has a chance to qualify after all!! :disco:

    Points based on age groups? How does that work?

    Good about the heart thing, it was very stupid.

    I never heard of the age groups before, did they really use this system back in the day? :square:
