Nobody said it was easy being a Eurovision fan in the 90s

A few days ago I attended the presentation party of an online music website with Loreen and Alaska as guest stars. After seeing these two artists who are somehow related to the Eurovision Song Contest performing together got me thinking about how different is to be a fan now as it was in the 90s.

It was hard to be a rock`n`roller in Herning

Being a true lover of rock music it was quit an ordeal to witness the final in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in the mid Jutland city of Herning Saturday the 26 of January. The songs were good yes, but where were the rock songs?

Oh Norway, what have you done?

It is all a matter of taste. That much I know, but last night I saw one of my favourite countries sink down to a level I could never have imagined. The Norwegians started their selection with a bunch of bad songs - and the single one worth listen to, kicked out. 

Can you spot a winner among the MF-debutants?

Many debutants and also some experienced names can be found in heat 1 and 2 of Melodifestivalen 2013 that was announced by SVT today. Maybe not the strongest field we've eveer seen but still not that weak either. And even without the really big names, is it still possible to find a winner in any of the first two heats?

And Now For the 2nd Semi-Final

OK, so I only predicted six of the ten on Tuesday (Moldova – seriously?) but here I am again, putting my reputation on the line and giving you an early indication of who will complete the line-up for Saturday night.  

No more Euphoria in Sweden?

When it comes to Melodifestivalen and Eurovision Song Contest I have always been proud to be a Swede. I've always associated it with pure joy. However, this year the joyful spirit doesn't seem to appear. The feeling when the names of next year’s participants were revealed can easily be summed up with one word, disappointment.

This Time, it's Personal!

OK, I’m going to start by being honest. What you are about to read is nothing to do with the Eurovision Song Contest. This one’s for me! I need your help so please read on.
