Melodifestivalen 2010 – Final

Six weeks since the first song walked out onto these stage, we have made it through four semi-finals, a second chance round, and now are housed in the great Globen. With sexy presenters, great songs, and a wide open competition (where I had no idea who would win!) I was so happy to see it (although delayed).

I orientally thought that Timoteij and/or Darin were going to be the winners, but as the show progressed it became more sweetly obvious what was going to happen.

Darin – You’re Out of My Life
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.1.Darin

This was not one of my favourites originally but it really grew on me. From the Semi-Final to the Final, my love for this song simply grew and overtime I hear Darin sing “It hurts” I just feel a little bit of knives in my heart. He’s an accomplished singer, and he did well for himself. Though I still can’t get over the nose… just saying

Pernilla Wahlgren – Jag vill om du vågar
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.2.Pernilla Wahlgren

Can’t have a Mello show without schlager in the final and thankfully she delivers. Total flop with the juries and televoting, but the dancers have my vote. I’m still salivating and having dreams about them being my backup dancer in my daydreams about being Da Buzz.. (yes I’m strange, but you can’t deny I have good taste!)

Andreas Johnson – We Can Work it Out

Stockholm.3.Andreas Johnson

A song of Andreas that I’m not really a fan of, but he’s still a fantastic singer. The song is simple, he’s wearing green, and he’s wearing a lot of make-up which is especially noticeable since the closeups are very… well close. I still am disturbed about how he looks so much like the Joker from Batman (somewhere along the way). I’m just not inspired at all by this song… Sad

Timoteij – Kom
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.4.Timoteij

I’ve said it in the comments for the Semi-Final, but anyone who knows me knows that I love this song. There are a few comments that are different than the semi-final: for instance the mics were very sensitive and you could hear the live “playing” of the instruments, and unfortunately they were all out of tune and sounded weird. Apart from that, they are hot, their song is awesome, and the drummers, among other things make me hot and put ants in my pants (or something)… I would vote for them, and the dancers of course!!

Peter Jöback – Hollow
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.5.Peter Jöback

As the apparent Peter Jöback look-alike, I have to empathize with this song. I think that our singing voices are even quite the same, which is strange. I love Peter Jöback, and I think that this song is so inspiring and well sung and powerful. It’s so powerful that I sing it in the shower and get all pruney. I just wish that he could have worn normal clothing and done something about the strange hairs. The lyrics for this song are also very easy to understand and are telling a story; that helps with me. I love this song, and I am so sad that nobody else felt my love!

Ola – Unstoppable

Stockholm.6.Ola

Listing to the ‘intro’ by Ola made me hate him even more, and I can’t get over it. His accent from the south, is barely understandable, and further to that with the haircut he looks like a shaved rat. The song is ‘ok’ but I feel that it’s so forced, and his English is so iffy that it makes the song less credible. Like I said, the song is decent and actually is quite catchy, but it’s poorly executed (in my opinion)!

Jessica Andersson – I Did it For Love
❗ Personal Favourite
Stockholm.7.Jessica Andersson

How could anyone not like this simple, powerful ballad?! With a beautiful woman singing a beautiful song, in a beautiful dress, and a beautiful situation it’s just a recipe for disaster. The problem is that Jessica is such a staple in the competition, she just doesn’t get the votes and gets lost in the shuffle. I really do love this song, and find myself humming it constantly.

Salem al Fakir – Keep On Walking

Stockholm.8.Salem al Fakir

This song really really really gets under my skin and I really don’t like it a lot. I don’t like his voice, I don’t like his ‘attitude’ and how he appears as a person (which seems quite stuck up and awkward). Good for him for making this far, and writing his own song; but what the fuck was up with that girl imitating him. I just really am irritated by this song and I hope that I don’t have to hear it often!

Anna Bergendahl – This is My Life
=> Winner
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.9.Anna Bergendahl

This song came out of nowhere to hit me in the face sine the Semi-Finals. When she comes out onto stages, I’m just as shocked as her with the lights in the crowd. Globen was gleaming with Anna, and then she starts singing the song and I find the hairs on my arm starting to stand on ends, and I get so far into this song. What a fantastic song to choose out of a great group of songs to represent Sweden. With a wide open competition she came from the middle to kick some ass. Will the song do well in Europe? I truly do think that this is a top 5 if not a top 10 song forsure! It’s so personal, it’s so emotional, it’s so everything!

Eric Saade – Manboy
❗ Personal Favourite

Stockholm.10.Eric Saade

Simply put this guy is every girl’s wet dream, although he seems to not have any control over his eyebrows or other facial expressions. He showers infront of the country, he’s cute as fuck, and he’s got a song talking about he’s a man but a boy. Sex on legs, but for me he’s not Måns Zelmerlöw, who I’m still holding out for, plus he’s too young! But God this song has me dancing down the street!

What a fantastic show, with fantastic inter-show with many huge stars with the Norway vs. Sweden, and then a dramatic wide-open competition! I can’t help but cheer on Sweden at Eurovision, though as originally planned, doesn’t look like I’ll be in Oslo! I hate my life in this respect!
