MF 2014: FOURTH SEMIFINAL REVIEW
ÖRNSKÖLDSVIK, SWEDEN – The fourth semifinal is always the most anticipated one in the Melodifestivalen. Once again though we almost all here are disappointed by the quality of the songs. What Christer Bjorkman praised for Melodifestivalen 2014 seems not enough to satisfy most of Eurofans especially the Melodifestivalen lovers.
While the betting odds predict Anton Ewald and Alcazar to proceed to the final of the Melodifestivalen on March 8th we hardly doubt the results will be like that. Today we listened to the snippets from the rehearsals and we made a short review of what the songs are about:
Anton Ewald – Natural: One Direction song, one of the same, typical pop and typical boyish band. Unlike Eric Saade, Anton falls in the same mistake with Oscar Zia basing his entire stage presentation as a boy band rather than a superstar (or at least a star) with fellow dancers on stage. I hardly doubt this will go to the final (at least directly).
Ellinore Holmer – En himmelsk sång: Has anyone at SVT listened to the anger before the song goes in Melodifstivalen? Ellinore I am sorry but your rehearsal was out of tune. Big disappointment and definitely nothing worst to see.
Linda Bengtzing – Ta mig: I personally love this singer and I strongly consider her a good choice for representing Sweden in a Eurovision Song Contest but I am honestly asking: who the heck decided this is the right song for her?
Josef Johansson – Hela natten: Totally indifferent song and presentation. Too epic in a Swedish version and with an expectation about the chorus which never comes!
Ammotrack – Raise Your Hands: I am 100% sure they just added this song in the line up just to add a rock / hard rock song in the selection. This song will never represent Sweden in Eurovision anyway, therefore there’s no point in discussing it.
Janet Leon – Hollow: Good singer, trash song once again. Nothing interesting and nothing impressive to watch, discuss, remember. On Saturday night we will reveal you a great information about that song. Until we verify the information we got on the spot in Sweden, stay tuned!
I.D.A – Fight Me If You Dare: Really? I am suppose to review this one too? No, I am sorry had enough of trash today from Melodifestivalen, thank you!
Alcazar – Blame It On The Disco: Amongst the worst songs, this one is like Paradise. It’s definitely typical Alcazar and they definitely copied themselves from past Melodifestivalen effort. Alcazar lovers you will love the 2014 edition of “Stay The Night”. The disco ball once again (just like 2005) might not help them as it didn’t help them in the past as well. But overall this is the best amongst trash!
