Beat Of Broken Hearts was my favourite of this year's songs. I hope lightning can strike twice but that Nobody performance is DIRE :D
Yeah, it was :D
To her defence it was like her second time performing on television after netting a Bingolotto appearance a few months before that.

I took the time to watch her Nobody, BoBH Semi and then Final performances back to back.







At least I can see marked improvements in her stage presence, timing and vocals for each performance.

Even though I don’t feel she’s got the weight to back up her pimp slot placement I’m fine with her getting a third try (since the Swedish population still doesn’t know who she is). I’ll be happy if she surprises me and at least she’s a competitor that we know will go for the win.

I'm clinging onto the hope that even if they cancel the tour, they could still do a big live finale in Stockholm.

New COVID restrictions in Sweden seem potentially likely to impact the live shows, at least for the first couple of heats:


I have tickets for the final so here is hoping the situation improves considerably by then :(

I remember thinking what a miracle it was that none of the artists were taken down by Covid last year. It seems almost inevitable this year.

We could've had a Further Trials of Anna Book thread here :D

EDIT: Oh, I just checked and our thread is already called that - I thought it was the MANY trials for some reason :tongueout: Well either way it would've been good to have updates.

She apparently had her brush with it in October. Fortunately she was able to muster the strength to ring Aftonbladet and conduct a wistful photoshoot in a lovely autumnal coat before sinking back into her death bed.

That's a shame, I guess no live audience again.
Actually: According to SVT, they will still let in audiences for the Melodifestivalen's broadcasts, unlike last year when the broadcasts from the Annex were completely without audiences. This year's approach is based on current restrictions, currently a maximum of 500 in the audience.

I imagine it'll make absolutely no difference to the noise compared with a full Swedish audience :basil:

I was re-reading the best thread ever (Allafestivalen) and just realised some posts were deleted, what happened? :square: There are 38 pages but for some reason I can't read/open the last one, maybe some stuff was deleted? I can't remember anything out of hand.

There are only 1,478 posts in that thread, which should fit into 37 pages. The last two posts look like they are discussing something else, so my guess is that posts were moved to start a new thread, but the database glitched and didn't update to show it as only 37 pages long.

Actually this wasn't true, but the thread should now be fixed.

I can't read most of that because some daft beggar has put a line through it, but I'm sure it was a wild ride.
