Finally, my favourite contestant won the Swedish final for the Eurovision Song Contest. Can’t remember when that happened last.
Obviously, I have to do my part to promote the song, so here goes.
Malena Ernman won with the song
La Voix, which is half disco/techno/pop and half opera. A cool mix, and I hope it is memorable enough to do well in Moscow. At least better than Sweden has done the last couple of years. (18th place both 2007 and 2008.)
Here is her performance in the Swedish final, where I think she sang better than in the qualifying rounds. The
powerful bits are less harsh or screamy if you will.
