I now LOVE In The Middle after claiming it lacked a soaring chorus last night :D

It’s not quite the joyous spectacle of Move, nor is it as instant so I will be shocked (but not unhappy) if it takes the win.

The reaction to Eric online is most odd, people seem to think it’s either a dead-cert competition defining winner, or just DO NOT GET IT :D I know which camp I’M IN :eyes:

I get Every Minute, he's just not the right performer for it though. It will finish somewhere between 3rd and 5th in the final (it would finish somewhere between 5th and 10th at Eurovision, but it's irrelevant because it's not going to win)

Interestingly, on Swedish Spotify, Emil Assergård seems to be having a pretty big hit with his song. It is top 10 there now

I'd like to propose swapping Eric Saade for Oscar Zia.

Thank you for taking this request into consideration @ChristerBjörkman

I love that the New Religion singer Lars Säfsund was featured after the walls fell down during the interval act!

I was already disappointed that Tess got the boot but I've listened to her song a few times now today and it feels even more like a gut punch (even if it was one I saw coming). :(

Heartbroken in hindsight.

Tess was too obvious a 5th placer for me to get emotional about it. I also thought she performed very stiffly, I would have liked her to have radiated the fun of her song.

Clara’s song is one of my favourites of the year, and she is likeable in a nonchalant, quirky way. I am gutted that she’s been played against Eva&Ewa because I think they both deserve to be in the final.

Loved Eric’s whole entry, with the dancer representing his ego. I guess after Lorraine threw the first brick at Melodifestivalen 2017, Sweden are now ready for artpop.

OMG I didn't know that!


Was it him that also beat Margaret in the Polish selection back in 2016?


That Romanian National Final 2008 almost felt like Melodifestivalen lite, what with Biondo, LaGaylia Frazier and Rednex competing. :D

Yeah, Clara's song is lovely. Thought it was going to tumble out in 6th place but really glad it didn't.

All the plagiarism and internal rigging accusations.

Netflix should commission a documentary.
They should! As an original language feature of course with Inna playing either Nico or herself.

I believe I've been told Netflix has already bought the US airing rights to Eurovision and commissioned a Fire Saga 2?

You have to remember I am an amateur when I don't have a running commentary from you and @Suomi at the Swedish church to at least tell me what to think.
