STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Last night the official channel of the Eurovision Song Contest uploaded the video clip of the Swedish entry, the hot favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest according to the bookies.
A few hours later we see a very negative reaction from the fans with the song receiving much more dislikes than likes and hundreds of negative comments. If this was the entry of Russia, Azerbaijan or Armenia we could understand that the reasons could be political, but such a reaction for the Swedish entry is very impressive.
Which could the reasons be for such a reaction since the song is not that bad? First of all, it could be that for the second year in a row Sweden is trying to win the Eurovision with a song that is not original.
Last year theY managed to do so with “Lovers on the sun” copycat but most obviously the fans don’t want them to repeat this in 2016 with a song which again is not original.
Another reason could be that Sweden is extremely expensive. From hotels, to transfers and food everything is over the top and there are already many delegations,journalists and fans complaining about this.
Finally it could be that the song and the staging are not good enough to win the whole thing. Many fans say that “if this was the entry of Belarus it would not even go to the final” and we can’t accuse them for that.
