David Lindgren – We Are Your Tomorrow
A typical Swedish pop anthem with David Lingren looking more mature and ready to get a spot in the final. In the rehearsal snippet we get a perfect vocal performance by David and of course a powerful dance act while the stage is coloured with blue and green lights. Interesting but somehow a tune we all have heard before.
Victor and Natten – 100%
A happy song with cheer leaders dancing on a prop. The tune is interesting, happy and childish enough to brainwash you and make you remember it. The vocals are quite stable and I wouldn’t mind seen this in the final although the rehearsal snippet on SVT website give a small clue of what’s going on.
Molly Petersson Hammar – Hunger
Hunnger seems very interesting tune and well performed by Molly. This song could easily become a radio hit and I wouldn’t mind see it in Eurovision. It kinda combines the Swedish Eurovision pop with a lot of international flavour. Definitely a worth to see act even the snippet is too short.
ISA – I Will Wait
Isa is presenting an alternative act and tune on stage, suspending the Melodifestivalen stage and using her shadows all over the backdrops with the use of light. Very good vocal performance, powerful and this cute face of the singer surely can work for her.
Krista Siegfrids – Faller
The 2013 Finnish representative and 2016 UMK hsotess Krist Siegfrids takes the stage by storm wearing (along with her dancers) red outfits while racing banners are used throughout the performance. Quite impressive, stable vocal performance and interesting to see whether Krista can break the bets and become the big favourite. Definitely a dark horse for me.
Patrick, Tommy & Uno – Håll mitt hjärta hårt
Kinda indifferent act and slow repetitive tune from the three male singers on stage. Not sure if this can be appealing enough to proceed even to second chance. But then again someone has to be eliminated!
Wiktoria – Save Me
Video mapping on her outfit and light to show her face during her static performances. Kinda 80s (from the good part) which is interesting to see and I think I will need to see the full version of the song to say something more inclusive for this act. Nevertheless this entry made me curious!
