Onwards we go to what is perhaps the most competitive heat of the lot, with seven songs that I could realistically see coming top 5 here. Fresh from Ryan's backyard where we saw Isa and Wiktoria advance to join Robin Bengtsson and Ace Wilder in the grand final of Buzzfestivalen, we've got just about everything in this heat, so here's a little reminder of DELTAVLING 3.


01. SaRaha - Kizunguzungu

Bringing you a Shakira knock-off, with a touch of CBeebies and presented by an aging likely lesbian with a receding hairline, SaRaha somehow managed to turn this track into one of the breakout hits of this years contest, dominating the Swedish charts and making it to the final in the process. We still don't really know what the hell Kizunguzungu is or whether this girl is actually Tanzanian (if she's from Africa, why is she WHITE teas) but will it receive the same success from the Buzzjack audience?


02. Swingfly (feat. Helena Gutarra) - You Carved Your Name

Combining a former finalist who was quite evidently treating the competition like a last resort as he moped around stage with Helena Gutarra, who had the stage presence of a single mother who's trying to prove she's cool to her kids in her hip new trendy shorts, wasn't a winning formula in Sweden in the slightest. Finishing 6th, it was far from emulating the success Swingfly had found in 2011 with Me & My Drum and the track quite evidently sounded like it was trying to be a retread of that exact track. In such a strong heat, will Swingfly & Helena be able to carve their name at least into the Andra Chansen write-up?


03. SMILO - Weight Of The World

From the minute the word 'wildcard' was uttered, these guys were probably f***ed, even if they were delving into the successful Kygo-esque formula that sent Robin Bengtsson straight to the final a mere fortnight before. But despite pushing themselves into the top 5 with undoubtedly Svensktoppennästa's more challenging sounding entry, they were kept away from Andra Chansen by Anna Bergendahl and a footballer who looks twice the age he actually is. It seemed to receive a good response however, so perhaps SMILO will be more fortunate in the hands of Buzzjack?


04. After Dark - Kom ut som en stjärna

When the Swedish audience continue to deny Schlager, why not throw an aging drag queen in the mix with a dated schlager track to see if the tables can be turned, eh? There was never a particular chance this song would advance much further in the main contest, unless there was some underlying hope that the recent rise of drag was going to make some kind of stamp on Melodifestivalen, and the song slumped into last place. Will it be able to better its fortunes here?


05. Lisa Ajax - My Heart Wants Me Dead

When you can't get the current Swedish pop behemoth Zara Larsson to the show, why not try the lite option and throw in Idol finalist Lisa Ajax and hope nobody notices, eh? There's always a place for a new teen on the block with a case of resting bitch face, following in the footsteps of Isa Swift from the year before. Track wise, it was never going to challenge for victory, but appeared to be pretty well liked in spite of this across the forum and seems likely to replicate its Melodifestivalen finalist placing on the site but shocks HAVE happened, do Buzzjack want her chances dead in the water or alive and well on course to victory?


06. Boris René - Put Your Love On Me

He just CAN'T be 24, surely. The more times I see that face, the more unconvinced I become. But the second of the African-cum-Swede invasion in this semi comes fresh from a Swedish football team who'd probably impressed the lads in the dressing room performing an Olly Murs track on karaoke and thought he'd add another string to his bow by trying his hand at Sweden's biggest music show. It didn't work out badly for him admittedly as he made his way to the final via Andra Chansen. Once again, it's a tough heat to know which way this will go, but will you be putting your love on him through your points?


07. Oscar Zia - Human

And last but not least, everyone's ~8th favourite twinky teenager of the past 5 years, it was the completely welcome return of Zia. Complete with X Factor-style sob story, telling the world he was infact a BIG GAY, Oscar's Depeche Mode-esque effort spoke about the struggles of homosexuals and the like and how they are STILL human. It was certainly a successful outing (the competition, not his emerge from the closet) for Zia though who finished 2nd, massively outdoing Yes We Can from 2014. Will you be as giving to R LEX?

THAT'S YOUR LOT.

Here's a vote-friendly list for you:

SaRaha - Kizunguzungu
Swingfly feat. Helena Gutarra - You Carved Your Name
SMILO - Weight of the World
After Dark - Kom ut som en stjärna

Oh. I really like that. But clearly didn't rank it very high, like 4 points. Everything's just so interchangeable.

Helena Gutarra is one of those 'everything she touches turns to flop' artists, seemingly.
