Despite a slow start to Melodifestivalen, things have picked up considerably. The fourth semi-final was by far the best so far, with some great songs.
Even putting my bias aside, Peter Jöback was always going to get through to the final. “Hollow” is a big song with a big hook sung with a big voice.
Good to get some dance pop schlager with Pernilla Wahlgren. Love this one.
Some more fun dance pop with Neo and “Human Frontier”. I became a Neo fan last year and this song does not disappoint. Love the outfit too plus the cane.
I was disappointed that Sibel was totally knocked out of the competition. Her energetic performance of “Stop” combined with her chunky purple dress should have got her through to at least Andra Chansen, the second chance final but alas no.
Peter got through to the final, and Pernilla and Neo will get another go in Andra Chansen. That now makes three artists (Pernilla, Neo and Alcazar) in Andra Chansen that I want to get through and of course, only two will get through. The way it is structured, Neo and Alcazar can’t both get through but I would be happy for either of them to join Pernilla going through to the final. We should know by this time tomorrow who is making the final line up for the grand final on 13 March 2010.
