They are announcing the winner
They are announcing the jury points
Stiko is guaranteed a place in the semifinals in Melodifestivalen regardless of the overall result tonight
not that you can judge over their personalities but anyway
now they are talking about the representative who will get the ticket to melodifestivalen
Maija is happy and pleased with her performance and rooting for her city
now back to the green room for more interviews
Sisanda moved to Sweden because of her husband went to university there.
My favourites are MIAH and Frontback.
I like Michi but I think she’s too young
They are doing the compulsory recap
With the voting numbers
Not for me. I think they need to rehearse more.
They both performed in last year’s contest as solo artists.
They sound like a contemporary folk sounding Simon and Garfunkel but I not sure their voices work well together.
They were shocked to have won their place
Next is Jo’ and Eliah
She’s young at 20
Something about her standing in for Molly at Eurovision for the UK?
She’s is from Malmö
Next is Michi
That was weird
But I couldn’t follow the lyrics
It was about living and not being happy
It didn’t make sense
Next finalist is Maija HomHom
This will be her first live performance on radio.
She always been involved in music from a young age.
Very repetitive but that works well in Mello and Eurovision
They sound like an early No Doubt
It reminds me of the song Spiderwebs by No Doubt
The chorus is more country inspired
Next finalist is Frontback
Rock band who want to share their music with the world.
and now to the green room speaking to the artists
one of them dedicates his performance to his family
It was ok. A little old fashioned in my point of view
Next is Sisanda who’s from South Africa
Some of the lyrics of her song are in an African language
He sounds authentic, I wouldn’t of said he was Swedish more like from Nashville.
He has odd interests including cowboy hats and Stephen Hawking.
Very contemporary country song with bluegrass tones
Up next Chris L Svensson
Singer/songwriter style song with a gospel edge. It feels like an X Factor single.
Good vocals though
Next finalist is MIAH
She’s been dreaming of performing on a stage of this size.
He’s singing about companions.
He feels like they are like companions.
Very folk sounding
Traditional style country song
They are introducing the finalists
They are just giving the voting rules and costs.
