I'm open to the view Clara, Little Tot and Eric Saade could've made it into the top ten, but I feel like I lean most towards the idea that The Mamas would've batted most towards a market that didn't really get catered to this year.
Oh good, I have been waiting for this. Eric almost certainly would have improved on 14th - he had the better song and the more engaging performance (and then there’s the man himself). I could see the Mamas yielding a decent televote and (strangely and of course without any objectivity) I feel Charlotte would have stood out. Probably not a better result, but she would have been remembered for more 5 minutes after the performance had ended.
DOM TOP DANNY and his virtual insanity would have been a fabulous edition to this year's final, and would have slotted in perfectly with the eccentricity of the likes of Russia and Lithuania's performances. Not sure if he would have done much better than Voices, but it certainly would have been a lot more FUN!
I LOVE Clara, but I think she would have been a COMPLETE FLOP at Eurovision
The song just isn't instant enough, and the lyrics would be lost on almost the entirety of the audience unless they'd somehow managed a non-terrible English translation.
I think Dotter would have been a flop too. There was no USP, especially compared to all the other female bangers.
