Thoughts:

- I think Tone Sekelius may be the first trans Melodifestivalen entrant? Unless one of Pink Pistols were at the time.
- Lillasyster are probably going direkt this time, aren't they.
- My god, Jimmy 'Joker' Thornfeldt is ALL OVER this year - 6 entries! 4 for Anderz Wrethov. 3 for G:son, 2 for Ljunggren, 2 for the Debs, just 1 for Laurell Barker, and none for Kempe or Kreuger. Third contest in a row without Anton Hård af Segerstad, so I wonder if he's left The Family at this point...
- Also interesting that contrary to @Hak's predictions, we haven't got Dotter or Wiktoria on songwriting duties for anything this year
- God Victor Crone being a cowrite on Robin Bengtsson feels like an omen that this might be his most BASIC YET

Also pimp slot feels very open this year - I could see it going to any of Anders Bagge, Anna, Omar, Klara and LIAMOO.

I imagine the traditional fun4gays heat 4 song 1 slot is going to be a FIGHT TO THE DEATH between Cazzi Opeia and Linda Bengtzing (with Tenori as stalking horse candidates) :disco:

From what I’ve heard Dotter’s songwriting credit died with Lina Hedlund not entering. We still have some Wiktoria DNA in the form of Malin though. Perhaps it would be too much to ask of them to both participate in the same year?

My starting assumption is probably Klara or Anna as the favourites, unless Robin's got something very competitive. My assumption is that if Lundvik was coming back again actually intending to win he'd have something in English, and it's hard to see many of the other listed contenders being able to win on the new age-based electoral college televote.

I couldn’t cope with another year of him being an ATTENTION SEEKING TWAT in the Eurovision green room

Let’s hope we see him on the wrong side of a GLOBEN or BUST :Lundvik:

Fairly sure that top 3 is purely based on name recognition.

We'll see how the heats shake out, but I'm expecting Omar, LIAMOO and maybe Anna to be the frontrunners.

I reckon Klara is in with a real shot this year. She's a great performer, just has maybe lacked THAT song before now, but she's steadily built up a following in the all important "young" voting groups in the last couple of years.

I can't see it with Lundvik, certainly not with him entering a song in Swedish. He probably just wants another domestic hit - he hasn't really done much under his own name since TLFL.

Would be happy for Robin to get the nod again if it was with something more akin to Constellation Prize than Take A Chance.

Yeah. She just needs the right song to give her a bit of crossover with the older voting groups / a jury win (or something within a few points of the jury winner)

I feel fairly sceptical LIAMOO and Omar are the sort of artists that can win that easily anymore since the switch to the demographic college. Their images don't feel hugely well suited to getting voters over 40 without things like e.g. collaborations like Hold You.

I think we've seen it a lot more lately with artists like Paul Rey/entries like Boys With Emotions etc, that we'd have expected to be easily direkt in the 'heart app telling you exactly how well things are going' years ending up having to go through AC, just because they're usually limited in how much appeal they've got to older voters.

Omar is my most anticipated but even a top half finish in the final would be a triumph and great redemption from before.

I really could not if either John or Robin win again. Let's have someone new OR two months of stressing over whether Anna is going to bring shame upon Sweden once more.

Lundvik is entering a song in Swedish because he’s releasing a Swedish language album next year. Someone thinking he’s not in it to win it are kidding themselves though. He’s a competitor through and through.

I mean, he might think he's in it to win it, but anyone who objectively actually was probably wouldn't be sending something in Swedish given Swedish language entries by and large tend to underperform with the international juries (and haven't won the more-gameface-by-the-final public vote since Evighet).

I wouldn't totally rule out it reversing that trend, but honestly I'd say a Mamas - In The Middle type result feels far more likely for him at this point.

Oh Sweden come on, you wouldn't even let Loreen through to the final, you are NOT sending John "93 points" Lundvik again so soon

I say it every year, the crazed speculation and gay overreactions are a FEATURE of this forum, not a bug!

Anyway no I don't think we should wait until we've heard the song. The only opinions that are allowed are ones expressed BEFORE we've heard the songs (any after are BANNED :hitler:)
