8 (and a bit) hours...

I've never cared so much about a Melodifestivalen result.I do generally have a favourite every year which invariably gets nowhere in the final,but I've never actually supported Sweden in the ESC itself.This year though,for me anyway,it all rests on Malena winning tonight.I know La Voix is a song which seems to divide opinion like Marmite,but I think Sweden choosing anything else will mean they'll just be average like everyone else this year.There's been a few songs this year that I've heard from national finals,and ones that have already been chosen,where I've thought "that's alright",but La Voix is the only song from the many I've heard that actually makes me feel something in the same way TornerĂ²,Work Your Magic and This Is My Life have done in recent years.So come on Sverige,don't disappoint us like so many other countries have this year!

OK we'll agree to disagree....I was sooooooo disappointed that "La Voix" made it after the very strong possibility that it would be "Hope and Glory"....anyway it's shaping up to be a pretty disappointing year at ESC so I won't even begin to predict the winner. I'm loving Hungary and Finland though, which is (inevitably) the kiss of death. :(
