This week’s Melodifestivalen was a bit of a triumph – I liked 6 of the 8 songs and all 4 that went through to the final/Andra Chansen were among my favourites. That’s a pretty rare occurence! So who won which award this week?
NB: I’ve only linked to videos on the songs that didn’t make it through, as the TV channel have a policy to remove all the entries that are successful from YouTube until they are eliminated (or win!).
Best Song in Swedish: Anniela – Elektrisk
Best (& Worst) Drag Queen (she’s the only one): Babsan – Ge mig en spanjor
Entrant Who’d Make The Best Mum: Elisabeth Andreassen – Vaken i en dröm
Most Adorable Entrant (despite the beard): Christian Walz – Like Suicide
