"song contest-the song ”northern lights” criticism"
"Nöjesbladet have previously written about the plagiatkritik directed against the Mello-finalist Jon Henrik Fjällgrens song ”northern lights”. "
"Before yesterday's semi-final in Leksand came further criticism from TV4 profile Nikki Amini."
"– You can always find inspiration, but the songs themselves should be original, she says to Expressen."
"Jon Henrik Fjällgrens contribution of the ”northern lights” have received harsh criticism from several quarters and accused of being a theft from Axwell and ingrosso's song ”Sun is shining”. "
"In connection with yesterday's semi-final in Leksand came further criticism from the Swedish TV4-profile and ”Idol”-jury member Nikki Amini who believe that such a skilled songwriter Fredrik Kempe should keep better track. "
"– Says Jon Henrik that he has not heard the song, I believe him. However, I suspect that the authors know of Avicii and Axwell & ingrosso's hits, Fredrik Kempe, usually have track. You can always find inspiration, but the songs themselves should be original, she says to Expressen."
"Musikexpert solid Melodifestivalen"
"To Nöjesbladet, Jonas Nordin, a music consultant at Stim (the Swedish performing international musikbyrå) who work with plagiatsanklagelser and copyright issues, said that several of the entries are copies of other songs."
"– the Songs in the Eurovision song contest is almost not songs. Many are caricatures of the other songs. The music is a bit special. You have three minutes on you to get into a huge hit and then you have to get recognition with the audience. If you do something completely new, it is not so likely that you will be remembered. "
"Schools have since backed away from the statement and tried to tone it down. "
"– Have made such statements, it is unfortunate and nothing that Stim as the organization stands behind. We value not and has not been opinions at all about music quality in the way it sounds, " says Eleonor Otterdahl, head of communications, and continues."
"Christer Björkman about the criticism"
"Statement from the Stim got the Melodifestivalen executive producer Christer Björkman, to react. "
" I think it is a very fun event of resignation for it is humorously said, but if he is serious about it, so I think it is extremely rude to 81 of its members that he believes that their works are caricatures of music. It is allowed to stand for him, we think otherwise."
"But in spite of plagiatanklagelserna took the previously tipped favourites the favourite Jon Henrik Fjällgren themselves through to the final of the Eurovision song contest. It will be the third gånden in a row as he manages the feat. "
" I had the northern lights with me. Absolutely incredible. The third time also. It is unreal that it can go so this is great when you are in the Eurovision song contest, " he says to Nöjesbladet. "
