Has it BEEN a YEAR ALREADY? OF COURSE IT FUCKING HAS *rips out 11-month old Alcazar IV drip from veins and reluctantly takes Hero off repeat*

WELCOME BACK BABES PLURAL *.* (Newbies, SCROLL DOWN, I'll be MONOLOGUING for a bit)

God, wasn't 2014 FABULOUS? After the mental anguish and horror of MF 2*13, it ended up being the kind of return to form us wizened old Melodigays had been pining for since a kinder time before Love Generation discovered zebra print and the reject bin marked *BURKE OR BELOW*, and before I had to start manually adding in my own key changes to Melodifestivalen entries (FUCK YOU CHRISTER).

Not only that, it was topped off with a true fairytale ending with the final victory of Sanna Nielsen, the Jesus of Melodifestivalen (impeccable appeal to white people, tendency towards career resurrection against the odds, though more of a propensity to turn wine into water), triumphing over a geriatric masturbating onstage encircled by prisoners - a true SLUTS VS. VIRGINS face-off FOR THE AGES *.*

Anyway, you all know the rest - San TOOK IT HOME with one of the tightest winning margins of all time and then did the Motherland proud with a very respectable third place finish in Copenhagen behind *the* two unquestionable breakouts of Eurovision 2014 - with The Common Linnets the first non-winning non-British entry to go top ten in the UK charts since Minn hinsti dans spent half of 1997 at number one (though if you're one of those heathens that tries to pretend that didn't happen, the last one before that was in 1974), and the contest's biggest media phenomenon since Dana International in Conchita. So it's only fitting that DAME SAN's been rewarded for her STERLING EFFORTS with the presenting gig this year - and not only THAT but lined up opposite this HOT PIECE OF TRADE



HUBBA HUBBA

And as presenting line-ups go it certainly beats out ACOUSTIC 'comedy' from Nour El-Rehai's 'we couldn't afford Gina Dirawi again' act and world's worst Swede and passable Kreisiraadio reject, Anders Jansson. Hang your coats up for a second though loves, I need to do INDUCTION for the FRESH MEAT...

NEWBIES, TUNE BACK IN. So, if you're wondering exactly WHAT this beautiful contest is and why on earth it warrants seven separate threads a year, here's how it goes. Melodifestivalen is the Swedish selection contest for Eurovision. HOLD ON, don't you DARE start eyeing that door...

I know what you're thinking - 'EUROVISION? That's TRASH ENOUGH AS IT IS, why on EARTH would I want to watch some GHASTLY preselection where it's probably the SWEDISH EQUIVALENT OF SCOOCH versus the SWEDISH EQUIVALENT OF KAVANA?'. Well, for a start, SHUT UP YOU SELF-LOATHING TOAD, Eurovision is our ANNUAL WEEK OF RELIGIOUS OBSERVANCE. But also, UNLIKE the typical state of affairs in the dearest United Kingdom, the Swedes go ALL OUT in their selection - pulling in some of their biggest stars and their greatest songwriters to bring a true celebration of music - in fact, you could call it a (WAIT FOR IT) FESTIVAL of MELODY.

Anyway, it's so bloody popular in Sweden it actually gets MORE viewers than THE EUROVISION ITSELF - and that's not just the finals, that's the HEAT STAGES. Basically imagine the popularity of the X Factor and Britain's Got Talent at their peaks combined with the essential viewing of an England World Cup Final, the Diana interview and the live coverage of the 9/11 attacks, and you're still NOT EVEN QUITE THERE (literally, if Osama could've weaponised Janet Leon's double money note of shame we probably WOULDN'T EVEN EXIST).

Anyway, each week there are 7 artists per heat (until this year there were 8, but I won't get started on that otherwise I might have an aneurysm from rage RIGHT THIS SECOND). The top two go directly to the final in six weeks' time, third and fourth go to a second chance round (known as andra chansen) in five, and the bottom three have their careers SLAIN in front of a nation and are exiled to the northern wastes of Sweden in shame forevermore as a result (probably). It's all HIGHLY COMPELLING viewing and honestly, your Februarys will never be the same again if you jump on board.

So whether you're just someone who kind of looks forward to the Swedish entry every year at Eurovision or you're the kind of weirdo who can immediately name their top three from MF 1987 at a moment's notice (challengers: obviously Dansa i neon comes first but Fyra bugg och en coca-cola is a CLEAR SECOND and I don't care WHAT you ARJA-FREAKS SAY), I'm expecting you IN HERE and EXCITED all week, every week from here until mid-March. You'd have to pretty much HATE MUSIC to not find at least one or two tracks a year to love, and the average pop fan will probably muster at least twenty tracks a year to be MINCING AWAY TO at their desks while pretending the fan's a wind machine. So yes. JOIN US


01: Molly Pettersson Hammar - I'll Be Fine
Text och musik: Molly Pettersson Hammar, Lisa Desmond, Tim Larsson, Tobias Lundgren, Gavin Jones
Best known for: Finishing 4th in Swedish Idol 2011
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 4.50 / 7/2 / 5th
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 26.00 / 25/1

Jordin Sparks really HIT THE PIES after that career failure...

Old Mol here played the role of Cher Lloyd in her series of Idol, finishing fourth behind the winner who went on to shame themselves in front of a nation (Amanda Fondell), the shy and winsome runner up that went on to have success far beyond what they ever could have expected (Robin Stjernberg), and the one who finished third and went on to become one of the biggest music phenomenons in the world (Moa Lignell) (EDITOR: this overstretched analogy isn't really working and we're not seeing any real Cher Lloyd similarities other than finishing fourth, start again.)

Anyway, we're probably in for something a bit better than Swagger Jagger here, as Molly hasn't done all that much since Idol, yet she's pulled herself the plum spot of opening the whole contest - a slot which has pretty reliably provided one of the more memorable entries of each year and which more often than not ended up doing fairly respectably at the business end of things (Dilba 'shrugging nonchalantly in hunchback from Stockholm bedsit').

Molly's said this is a 'soulful piano-led' track, so we're probably in for some hot vox, and the songwriting calibre here is absolutely top-notch, with PLAY Productions (Larsson och Lundgren) being the geniuses behind Linda Bengtzing's greatest hits, amongst other deeply fabulous Melfest entries (YMMV: Heartbreak Hotel), and Lisa Desmond being behind a few choice cuts from of ALBUM OF THE DECADE Tabu by Timoteij.

Amanda Fondell's failure two years back shows that the Idol tag (or even having a fab track) is rarely enough on its own to get someone through the heats - are Mol's performing chops still up to standard enough to get her through this heat?


02: Daniel Gildenlöw - Pappa
Text och musik: Daniel Gildenlöw
Best known for: Lead singer of Pain of Salvation, who made it to andra chansen in MF 2010 with Road Salt
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 8.00 / 7/1 / 6th
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 67.00 / 66/1

You can probably guess from the photo that Daniel isn't the kind of man who spends his evenings writing essays about how shit Cucumber is (in fact - THE HORROR - I bet he DOESN'T EVEN WATCH CUCUMBER). Adding that to a title bringing back painful memories of the arseclenchingly bad Broder from last year, you're probably thinking this is one probably worth tuning out of, and I will offer NO OBJECTION to such thoughts. Gildenlöw was the lead singer of Pain of Salvation, who made it to andra chansen in MF 2010 with the relentlessly depressing grunge dirge Road Salt - though that was one of the worst MF years of all time so it's not much of a track record to speak of.

These heartstring tugging rock ballad confessional tracks crop up every year, and generally they go either way - for every Broder, Leaving Home, or Jag reser mig igen which smashes in the final you get an En förlorad sommar or an...um...oh.

BE AFRAID


03: Rickard Soderberg och Elize Ryd - One By One
Text och musik: Jimmy Jansson, Karl-Ola Kjellholm, Elize Ryd och Sharon Vaughn
Best known for: He's an internationally-renowned opera gay, she's the lead singer of symphonic metal band Amaranthe
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 2.50 / 6/4 / 3rd
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 15.00 / 14/1 (7th favourite to win)

Now Rickard on the other hand DOES look like the kind of man who could immediately reel off his all-time top five favourite contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race *.* But DON'T GET TOO EXCITED though - we're in for a bombastic rock opera epic here, as you'd EXPECT from a man willing to go out in public with facial hair like that, so your mileage may vary (unless you're Iz in which case READY THE DEFIBRILLATORS).

It's another absolutely stellar songwriting team here - Karl-Ola and Sharon were the writers behind Helena Paparizou's Survivor last year, which basically upgraded pop, and Sharon also played a hand in Agnes - Release Me, which six years on STILL makes your average gay anthem sound like a Stereophonics album track, so the melody here should be up to scratch. I'm crossing my fingers for something a little more Never Forget than Day After Day, though opera crossover isn't a genre especially well known for its success in the past, as Malena Ernman can attest. Can the fat old queen and his suffering hag falsetto their way into andra chansen?


04: Dolly Style - Hello Hi
Text och musik: Emma Nors, Palle Hammarlund och Jimmy Jansson
Best known for: They AIN'T, but the mastermind behind them is YOHIO, who won the televote and finished 2nd in MF 2013 with Heartbreak Hotel and came back to diminishing returns last year with To The End
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 9.00 / 8/1 / 7th
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 81.00 / 80/1

Oh YOHIO, not UNDERAGE GIRLS

Despite being a TORTURED SOUL (fronting tracks written by the people behind Linda Bengtzing and Andreas Johnson), YOHIO seems to have QUITE the preoccupation with Sweden's prime gay pop contest, so he's back for another crack - and surprisingly enough, NONE of Dolly Style are The Artist Formerly Known As Kevin in drag (for once). Second and sixth place weren't enough for YOHIO, so he's hoping his bespoke super-kawaii girl group Dolly Style can do the business.

Yimmy Yansson's on songwriting duties here, so expect a maddeningly catchy scat hook based on repeating a single syllable (think Amanda, or for those with more recent memories, last year's ball-crushingly disappointing schlager throwback Casanova). Given the look doesn't seem especially rocky, we could FINALLY be in for the resurrection of my infamous prediction two years ago that YOHIO would bring something manic, J-Poppy and upbeat 'like a Swedish Play The Game Boy' - or it could end up being just as off the mark as that prediction was and end up being cartoony as fuck. Actually, looking at them, I'm guessing that. Let's call it HALVES and call it the Rockin' The Ride throwback we'd NEVER DARED DREAM OF, and christ knows how that's going to go down.


05: Behrang Miri och Victor Crone - Det rår vi inte för
Text och musik: Behrang Miri, Albin Johnsén, Måns Zelmerlöw och Tony Nilsson
Best known for: Making it to andra chansen in MF 2013
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 2.62 / 13/8 / 4th
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 26.00 / 25/1

Behrang here made a minor splash in the WORST HEAT OF ALL TIME in MF 2013 by crossing over from a glittering career as a socially-conscious librarian (...) to the Melodifestivalen stage with Jalla dansa sawa, which didn't even try to pretend it wasn't a straight-up rip-off of the French Eurovision entry from 2010 (but tried to distract you at least by drafting in Jesy from Little Mix plus twenty stone and Oscar Zia on backing vox). That made it to the soaring heights of andra chansen before being crushed by the pendulous lips of Anton Ewald in the duel stage - so old Bez has decided to go one better by drafting in the ORIGINAL schlager twink, Mans Zelmerlow, to write him a big old urban singalong with a white boy on hook vox.

The pre-contest reviews have all unanimously mentioned Empire State of Mind - whether that's the kind of track that can go all the way in Sweden is another matter, but urban-tinged entries have form in the contest, with Panetoz and Swingfly going direkt in recent years, and Albin/Måns/Nilsson is a songwriter list to DIE for, with Albin having the Swedish summer hit of 2014 with Din Soldat (more on the hook singer Kristin Amparo in a few weeks), and Tony Nilsson being one of Sweden's most esteemed pop writer-producers, doing work for Selena Gomez and Agnes, and a fair few MF entries along the way too. With this team behind him, can Behrang make it straight to the final the second time around?


06: Jessica Andersson - Can't Hurt Me Now
Text och musik: Aleena Gibson och Fredrik Thomander
Best known for: Part of 00s duo Fame, who won MF 2003 and came 5th at Eurovision with Give Me Your Love
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 2.37 / 11/8 / 2nd
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 17.00 / 16/1 (joint 8th favourite to win)

Somebody get me on suicide watch - we've got a MELFEST VETERAN here and this RARELY ENDS WELL

Jess here goes a long way back - like, back to when Fame Academy was actually a PROFITABLE PROPOSITION (OT: did we know David Sneddon wrote Lana Del Rey's National Anthem? I thought he DIED!).

So, back in those dim and distant days of 2002, when half of you were still SHITTING YOURSELVES (and not in the standard MF-adjacent sense) and those of us that weren't were treating stonewashed double denim paired with male crop top vests like they were a hot look (*flashes accusing look at Andreas off Alcazar*), Jess here was entering the Swedish equivalent of Fame Academy WHILE PREGNANT (LOOK AND LEARN FOLCKER). Anyway, she did that at the same time as some OAP called Magnus Bäcklund, and Bert Karlsson (the Swedish equivalent of Pete Waterman, except with the decency to treat Eurovision with a bit of fucking RESPECT) paired them up - and VOILA, we had FAME.

Fame proceeded to enter MF 2003 with hilariously transparent ABBA rip-off Give Me Your Love - genuinely schlager in its LOWEST FORM and probably the closest Sweden has come to entering Eurovision on autopilot. It says it all about how popular they were that in a final as high quality as 2003's (Sanna entering as a lesbian televangelist and TAKING US ALL TO CHURCH! Pernilla Wahlgren dressing up as a Narnian ice queen and dragging along a bloated Jan Johansen for the ORIGINAL Chanée & N'evergreen duo of maximal mutual loathing and MAXIMAL MELODY! Jill Johnson whapping the tits out for a Shania reboot! Afro-Dite SINGING ABOUT CHICKEN DESIRE! The GREATEST ALCAZAR PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME!) that Fame strolled to a landslide victory with barely a hint of struggle (*Pernilla twitches violently in the corner and adds JessAn to reverse bucket list*), before getting the ultimate default 5th placer at Eurovision itself back in the days when bargain bucket schlager used to actually fly in the televotes.

Of course, it was also the time when MF winners used to actually make a habit of trying to defend their title the year after (to, well, barely any enthusiasm ever), so Fame gave it another shot again the year after with Vindarna vänder oss, finishing sixth in the final, and both went their separate ways two years later - and THAT'S when the fun began *.*

Up until this point Jessica had a very carefully cultivated image as Sweden's innocent, likeable girl next door. So you can only imagine the shock when Jess strutted out onstage for her first solo entry in MF 2006 in purple hot pants and practically got her foof out for the nation by slut dropping in slow motion on a chair to a slice of transcendental Kyliepop with Kalla nätter, immediately becoming an eternal icon for Melodigays of a certain age and, of course, going out fifth in her heat, marking it as one of the most ill-advised image transformations of all time. But more on Ellen Benediktson in two weeks...

A second face-saving attempt at MF the year after with disco-influenced Kom (unfortunately not as good as that Kom, though it does feature the word 'sexiblondmodell', so it has THAT going for it at least) crawled its way to andra chansen before getting battered out by Sanna Nielsen's only encounter with AC, and for three years Jessica basically disappeared from the scene. Until 2010...

Heat one, 2010. Jessica's last throw of the dice - three flops and you're out when it comes to the MF veteran game, and if anyone knew that it was Jess. Slutpop had failed her. The Fame sound was long dead, and in any case schlager was very much on the out for MF 2010. The only option left was a big ballad - I Did It For Love, which duly scrabbled Jess into andra chansen (along with Pain of Salvation - Christer, you old dog.) - whereupon she was drawn against an imperious Alcazar with Headlines, whom everyone had expected to sail through their heat until Timoteij shocked everyone by going through directly over megastar Darin (yes, with that Kom). Yet despite being written off by all comers, Jess SANG HER LIFE OUT and on her last chance made it to the final, and in the aftermath scored one of the biggest MF radio hits ever in Sweden with the track, staying on the Svensktoppen radio chart for over two years after the contest.

So, after five years (and not at ALL influenced by the success of Undo), she's back. It's a big ballad, written by previous Sanna and Molly Sandén ballad collaborater Aleena Gibson (ready yourselves for some especially banal lyrics), and this one's definitely going to be hoping there's enough goodwill left over from last time to get Jessica to the final again. But will the Sanna comparisons ring a little too true for a Swedish public never too keen on rewarding coattail riding? You certainly won't want to see my reaction if they don't.


07: Eric Saade - Sting
Text och musik: Arash Fahmi, Fredrik Kempe, Hamed 'K-One' Pirouzpanah och David Kreuger
Best known for: Winner of Melodifestivalen 2011 and third place in Eurovision 2011 with Popular
William Hill odds on going direkt till finalen (decimal / fractional / projected heat finish): 1.06 / 1/16 / 1st
William Hill odds on winning Melodifestivalen (d / f): 2.75 / 7/4 (FAVOURITE TO WIN)

Here it is - the first big contender of the year. Johnkm, hands on the table where I can see them. Adam, stop drooling. Robot, put your shirt back on, this isn't the time. Actually, I don't know why I'm saying all that - his new look's DREADFUL! Olly Murs should NEVER be an inspirational look (SHUSH LIAM)

So, if last year's story was sluts vs. virgins, this year's is being built up as TWINKS vs. OTTERS *.* Team Otter will be getting their dues in Week 4, but representing for the Twinks is Eric - one of the more recent Melodifestivalen alumni and probably only joined by Loreen and YOHIO for legitimate MF stars the contest has produced so far this decade with unblemished records.

Eric here was one of the few shining lights of MF 2010, bursting onto the scene with gayed-up Womanizer re-write Manboy (written, of course, by Kempe) with a performance climaxing with Eric being drenched onstage with a shower - instantly confirming to all viewers that Kempe should probably be put on a list (though frankly if you hadn't had your suspicions by that point, you're the kind of person who explains why Yewtree's proving so fruitful) and that Eric was a total star in the making. To say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about his vocals. Or just how much of the star appeal came down to those looks...

A third place finish in MF followed by a sell-out tour, smash album, and Eurovision vote-reading cameo which set gay tongues a-wagging across a whole continent set things up inevitably for Eric's return to MF the year after as the prohibitive favourite on paper before anybody had even heard a note. In Popular, Kempe gave Eric the kind of return track that would have made literally anybody a prohibitive favourite - a glittering Boney M-inspired dance-pop odyssey which sounded like a million discoballs exploding simultaneously and POP ITSELF punching you in the face repeatedly, a point neatly emphasised with the classic gimmick of the shattering glass cage. Decent vocals? Who needs that when you have a SUPERNATURALLY ATTRACTIVE 19 year old being felt up by his backing dancers to one of the most VIOLENTLY FABULOUS BACKING TRACKS OF ALL TIME?! (Giant disco smileys were used with great abandon, obviously.)

Anyway, in one of the greatest pop injustices of all time Popular finished third in Dusseldorf behind an incestuous Azerbaijani duo with about as much sexual chemistry as, well, FAME, and some Italian prick screeching over a generic piano jazz track - one stitching up the televotes and the other stitching up the juries. MORAL VICTOR Eric followed up Eurovision with two massive albums in Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 and...well, not much since then, aside from a charity single last year. The fanbase is still there, but there's definitely the sense of a career out of momentum and heading in the wrong direction.

Still, Melodifestivalen is a kind mistress to its veterans who have fallen on hard times, and Kempe's a man aware enough of his advancing years to never say no to a hot piece back at his door. So, he's lined up the big songwriting team with an impeccable three-for-three finalist record in last year's MF (Yes We Can, Blame It On The Disco, and Undo) for Eric's return, and we're in for a big brassy uptempo pop track that will almost certainly sound polished enough to walk straight onto the Billboard Hot 100. The question here isn't whether he'll qualify from the heat - with his fanbase, record, and status as one of the biggest popstars Sweden has, it would go down as the biggest MF shock ever if he didn't, not least because as odds stand he's favourite to win the whole thing.

The question is THAT - whether it'll all be enough to beat out the long-awaited return of the ORIGINAL Kempe twink waiting in the wings in heat four. Eric says he's back in it to win it - Eurovision that is, not Melodifestivalen. Will the twinks prevail over the otters in the SEX GOD SHOWDOWN to get him there? Or will there be a metalhead intervention along the way?

-x-

Here's the projected timetable for the week:

Thursday: Reviews of the rehearsals with *possible* thirty second (rather than a minute) clips of the performances. Needless to say if they're that short, take any impressions with a silo of salt - unless they're obviously Hero-level quality and going to change our lives in which case SET HYPERBOLE TO 11
Friday: Clips will definitely be released by then, along with reviews of the second rehearsal and the notoriously hit-or-miss results of the 'gen-rep' poll of audience members at the rehearsals
Saturday: In the afternoon we *should* get 2:30 clips of the songs uploaded to SVT. A livestream of the heat will start at 7pm GMT on svt.se/melodifestivalen


So LET Melodifestivalen BEGIN AGAIN for another year - PREDICTIONS, SPECULATION, and LIFE OR DEATH HYPERBOLE over SNIPPETS OF POP PERFORMANCES *.* GO!

I guess Eric got so cocky he didn't even send his song to radios (if that's how that shit works~) because there's like a snowball's chance in hell he's not going DTF so why bother until at least a month later ohmy.gif

I think for my initial predictions I will go with:

DTG: Eric, Jessica A
AC: Daniel, Rikard/Elize
5th: Behrang/Victor
6th: Dolly Style
7th: Molly P-H

It seems really quite open aside from Eric, can't really see any real write-offs although I'm sure that'll change once we get to the clips.

And obviously I'm excited most for Rikard/Elize and Dolly Style from this lot but Behrang's song sounds interesting as well and I'm always up for a rock ballad (as long as it is SLIGHTLY less manipulative than bloody Broder).

Brilliantly enjoyable write-up as ever. Fame's success in 2003 really was incredibly baffling looking back...the Pernilla, Alcazar and Jill Johnson tracks would have been far better winners.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Eric comes up with but Popular is really his ONLY essential song for me. And he hasn't put anything I've listened to more than once out of choice since Hotter Than Fire.

I may be incredibly biased (what I am saying, of course I am!) by his looks but I really think Eric is a great popstar and has had some fantastic songs. OK, his last album was VERY hit and miss (sadly mostly miss) but there were a few gems to take from it.

SAADE TOP 10

1. Popular
2. It's Gonna Rain
3. Hotter Than Fire
4. Imagine
5. Made Of Pop
6. Masquerade
7. Hearts In The Air
8. Boomerang
9. Love Is Callin'
10. Fingerprints

Elize & Rickard - YES YES YES. This sounds utterly brilliant, as much as a 30-second clip will allow anyway.

Yaaasss *.*


Suitably excited for Jessica and Eric, Molly's clip is great too! I can definitely see myself loving Dolly Style too all things considered... Not the fact they're strongly linked to Yohio ofc but I'm a sucker for anything J-Pop-esque...

Predictions:

DTG: Eric, Behrang/Victor
AC: Molly, Daniel
5th Jessica (I can see her doing a Charlotte Perrelli etc., I would say "unless the song is good" but we've all heard The Girl!)
6th Rickard och Elize
7th Dolly Style
