"Markus Larsson about the first semifinal of the Eurovision"
"TEL AVIV. Na na na...well, this was as usual not really wise."
"No one from the first semi final learn to threaten John Lundvik."
"In any case not according to the odds."
"And they have, in the case of Sweden, have been wrong in the past. Missed the target by four miles, approximately."
"However, compared with the initial stöket in Israel, come on."
"what was it we saw?"
"Well, thanks to Estonia, Sweden has at least one artist in the finals in the form of Victor Crone."
"Imagine, just imagine, how far you can go by to plank a little bit of Avicii now-a-days."
"the Rest contained everything, just everything, except the good songs."
"We will forget much from Tel Aviv, but not the Portuguese contribution."
"If we had been able to smoke that number would be the trip. It would have landed further away than the planet Mars sometime after Tjugondag Knut."
"You can also wonder what the winning entry and set designers behind Australia's contribution actually eat during a jobbskift. It can't be juice, and cinnamon rolls."
"Australia grandiose madness"
"Australia gave Edward Bloms old pop songs, ”Life on a stick” a whole new meaning. Or the dear old phrase ”a stick in the ass”, for that matter. A grand madness with a text which, of course, is all about postpartum depression."
"the Only reasonable finalist was Iceland and the group of Hatari."
"the Competition will need more industrial BDSM-synth and less gråblek pea soup. "
"Painfully clear that many countries don't care"
"the Eurovision song contest is otherwise a nice and good event. This really needs no feel afraid and ottrygg in the warm, happy, and included the atmosphere. Despite the fact that the event is dominated by thousands of passionate men. "
"the ESC is trying to unite over 40 different countries with the message that pop music is a universal language without country-, gender - and rasgränser."
"the only Question is how the competition should respond to the new spirit of the times, with growing and alarming extreme nationalism, which often cultivates homophobia?."
"the ESC is in many ways its ideological counterweight."
"But the competition has – duh! - problems with verkshöjden."
"As the first semi shown is the contribution for the poor."
"It is painfully clear that many countries have neither care or advice or both, and to do something that can finish in the top ten in the a final."
"Or as at all possible to listen to (hey, Finland)."
"It has always been so, and will surely never change."
"But given the huge platform, it would surely go to build other, more sustainable careers."
"With the better music would the ESC also get a more sustainable and long-term weight."
"the Backbone consists of extraneous air."
"When the draw put the best tracks and the heaviest vinnarfavoriterna in one and the same semi-final, the second on Thursday, becoming the first qualifier extremely empty and lökigt."
"But the point is, perhaps, in the end, that the ESC should not have anything to do with reality."
"It is here, and only here, as San Marino's ”na na na” can be seen, be heard and succeed."
"But it also can go easily and quickly to demolish the whole construction, since the backbone consists of extraneous air. "
"”Hatrið mouth sigra (hate will prevail)” with Hatari. Fire. Hammer. Chains. Leash. Leather. German roar. The icelanders was the great and only proceeds. "
"”Look away” by Darude feat. Sebastian Rejman. Come on now, Finland, came again. "
