I get this totally. It would have been interesting to see if their reaction was as visceral if they'd just heard the studio version, but for me the presentation was what destroyed it on the night.They hated Eric, one of them genuinely found it to be the worst of the night.
I feel like if they'd have revamped the staging, the song itself could definitely have fared much better than Voices.Yeah, for all the hype it got, I think Eric's stage show ultimately came off rather cringe.
It was absolutely a performance that would have tanked in the televote a'la Benjamin, so I think Sweden dodged a bullet.
They were whelmed by Tusse, but felt if it was on Eurovision they'd probably enjoy it. Consensus was that he's delightful but the song's a bit weak.
Go for it! Question is whether there's enough interest to do four semis, an AC, and a final, or possibly combine all of the semis in one go so it doesn't take six weeks.Is it too early to open Moopyfestivalen for this year tomorrow?
I'm happy to go and host Semi-Final 1 and then if someone else is more keen to do it, they can take over (otherwise I am happy to do the full thing).

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why we pay dmlaw the big money.Well, I've listened to the winner a couple of times now and it seems like such a big dull dud. If it was anyone other than Sweden, we'd be looking at a probable non-qualifier. It isn't even interesting enough to be actively offensive.
