It began to blow at the country's newspaper pages already with Andreas Johnson's contribution last week, but Leksand had plagiatvreden reached full storm the fortress. Jon Henrik Fjällgrens ”northern lights” have been considered a little too similar to both Avicii, above all, Axwell & ingrosso's ”Sun is shining”. Pure plagiarism will be investigated and in this case, to be washed, but in general demand is not so rare authenticity of Melodifestivalartister and their songwriter. Which is a bit like asking Tupperware start with organic wood in their products. The eurovision song contest is well, should well be, the realization of an end - and uninhibited showglädje with more or less (often more) shameless låtstölder squashed on the three minutes.
and their pastel totalglädje in the ”Habibi” with the ”oriental” colored snattande of any musical resident from the eastern Mediterranean. In Leksand was not enough Polly, Molly and Holly, but that the audience cares less and less about the possible plagiarism, want show and not some singer/songwriter-the authenticity of the appeared in the and with to just Jon Henrik Fjällgren was rewarded with a lot of directly to the final votes. His bredbenta, romantic wildlife ”Hunters”appearance, with a backdrop of mountains and campfires, starry sky, singing and snow, snow, snow (and love at first sight, to a pure) obviously went home in a lot of cottages far below his home on Mittådalen.
Perhaps an even better evidence that Mellopubliken want to show and not well thought out deep was that Lina Hedlund ”Victorious” was the second contribution from Leksand to go directly to the final. Her, in a positive sense, the brain-dead right perfect maximalschlager with kulingblåst in the hair and klivande down the classic showtrappa (although a bit more spartan Swedish hockeyläktarvariant) was well Melodfestivalen in its prydno.
Veteran Martin Stenmarcks drop-out-your-inner-power animal-pekoral ”Let that shit burn” and a mere 18-year-old Rebecka Karlsson's magnificent ”Who I am”, you both get a second chance.
become not much more than a whisper. It has gone in the right direction since the onset of the turmoil, fragmentation of the first round. Tonight's three presenters Kodjo Akolor, Marika Carlsson and Eric Saade (in Leksand, then, was Sarah Dawn Finers turn to stand to the side) showed that one can be happy, pleasant and welcoming without continually gasta tokskämt. The three were almost dimmed in the evening and let the artists stand for most of the show. Instead of they themselves. More professional and more respectful towards both us in front of the tv all on the ground in Leksand.
Saade most impressive again, he is molded into a multibegåvad host slash hostess in front of our eyes. He plays almost good in the eternal sketcherna. And if his Ted Gardestad-medley in the beginning made with slightly less exaggerated manierad pojkrums-r'n'b voice, it had become the particular ”great number”, as Marika Carlsson hojtade afterwards.
