Fotis Konstantopoulos from oikotimes.com made his own comments regarding the first semifinal of Melodifestivalen. His comments added in the SVT Melodifestivalen website along with other fan site editors and journalists from Europe.
Highlights from the commentary: The oikotimes.com chief editor is impressed from the first semifinal line up but his only problem is that he likes them all! If it was a betting though his money would go to David Lindgren and YOHIO. David is his personal favourite as he knows him from his venture last year in Melodifestivalen. “He impressed me also with his ethos and modesty” Fotis concludes.
Regarding the question what kind of song should Sweden send to Eurovision Song Contest 2013, Fotis Konstantopoulos said: “It’s Sweden, European viewers and fans have shown they love whatever style of song you send no matter whether it’s ABBA, Anna Bergendahl, Malena Ernmann … etc.”
