VIDEO / SANNA: AN UNDOABLE FAVOURITE
OLIVIER: THE SWEDISH NON-SURPRISE
THE diva of this semi-final. I reckon SVT next year to save money by sending a video of the Melodifestivalen performance instead of the actual artist since this is the exact same staging (without the diamond curtain though). Did anyone tell them there were LED screens in the arena? Nevertheless, she has a great voice, a nice song (even if not the best of Sanna’s discography). The weird thing is that out of the 7 songs she has performed on Swedish national finals since 2001, the one that eventually brought her to Eurovision is probably one of the weakest ones. The lights effects are still very good and make the performance memorable enough to secure a spot in the final and even a Top ranking on May 10th.
FOTIS: KATE RYAN OF 2014?
The organized fans consider her the top favourite, the bookies consider her as hot favourite as well. The point is that this Miley Cyrus alike song might bring a trophy again to Sweden but my instinct says that it can easily became a bottom ranked entry easily. Stage arrangement is exactly what we saw in Melodifestivalen. Vocally Sanna (we have to admit that) is amazing as we all know what a great artist she is.
