Melodifestivalen - Deltävling 4: Örnsköldsvik This was the weakest Melodifestivalen Heat I can ever remember and so is this year's competition overall so far. What a sad mess yet again. It was the first time I couldn't even care less about who qualifies and who doesn't (other than Linda Bengtzing who really made me smile). Results: Through to the Final: 1/2. Alcazar "Blame It on the Disco" (Fredrik Kempe, David Kreuger, Hamid "K-One" Pirouzpanah) I am happy for them but this is probably the worst Alcazar single ever. Kempe really isn't having a very creative year. +3 GOE for emerging out of a huge disco ball but the rest of the performance was just them standing there. 1/2. Anton Ewald "Natural" (John Lundvik) It was a pretty fun dance track I guess but I much preferred "Begging," he placed 4th with in the final last year. It just fell flat to me. The staging was crap, his choreography was crap and his vocals sounded abysmal. I mean we all knew he couldn't sing but I guess last year the backing vocals managed to drown his voice out. This year he actually tried to take centre stage singing and it was quite painful (especially during the second performance after his win was announced). Through to Andra Chansen: 3/4. Ammotrack "Raise Your Hands" (Jari Kujansuu, Thomas Johansson, Calle Kindbom, Mikael de Bruin) Pretty standard hard rock song. The name of the band alone makes me go for a bathroom break. 3/4. Ellinore Holmer "En himmelsk sång" (A heavenly song) (Ellinore Holmer, Vanna Rosenberg, Åsa Schmalenbach, Josefina Sanner, Henrik Wikström, Amir Aly) A singing child wailing a snoozy ballad. Please kill me. Off home: 5. Linda Bengtzing "Ta mig" (Take me) (Nicke Borg, Jojo Borg Larsson) This was fabulous. A schlager with contemporary production. Bonus points for her gold hot pants. I am very sad about this not going through to Andra Chansen at least. 6. I.D.A "Fight Me If You Dare" (Albin Nicklasson, Nicklas Laine, Louise Frick Sveen) Avril Lavigne - band version. It was catchy enough I guess but a very predictable. 7. Josef Johansson "Hela natten" (All night) (Peter Boström, Thomas G:son, Josef Johansson, Peo Thyrén) Awww what a cute twink. This was actually pretty sweet but I guess it was a little too bland and didn't stand out enough. 8. Janet Leon "Hollow" (Karl-Ola Kjellholm, Jimmy Jansson, Louise Winter) I think she should have gone through to the final with "Hearstrings" last year. It was a real banger and she performed it brilliantly. This, however, was pretty awful. A dull power ballad and her vocals sounded weird.
