Eric Saade has just released his brand new album called ‘Det svarta fåret’ (The black sheep). The album has seven tracks and includes five new songs written in Swedish.

The latest Glas is currently riding high in the Swedish charts and there is another single just released Nån som du (Somebody like you). This is composed with the popular duo Jubël.

Included on the new album is a big winter hit together with Anis Don Demina (who was in the 2020 Melodifestivalen) entitled Postcard.

Eric said in his press release “The name  Det svarta fåret (The black sheep) comes from how I always felt in my life. From growing up, to schooling and even in Sweden’s music industry where I always felt like the black sheep, and made my own way.  For some reason, you always write the best songs when your life is turned upside down. The song Nån som du I wrote directly when I decided it was over.”

INTRODUCING STEVE LETIZIA – AUSTRALIA

Hello everyone, my name is Steve and I am a Eurovision addict. I’m not exactly sure at what age I became a Eurovision fan, though I’ve been watching the show for as long as I can remember. Being a huge ABBA fan and knowing that they had won in 1974 had something to do with my involvement in watching Eurovision perhaps? Once I moved out of my parents home, I would host Eurovision parties for all my friends in the hopes I would convince them to join the cult of Eurovision. Thankfully, I was able to recruit my partner Brett into the cult! After decades of watching the Eurovision Song Contest on TV, my dream of finally attending the contest came true. I attended my first Eurovision Song Contest in 2013 – Malmö, Sweden!

A bit about me and Eurovision:

EUROVISION ATTENDANCE:

Malmö 2013 and Copenhagen 2014

GOOSE BUMP MOMENT:

The deafening cheers for Conchita in Copenhagen – this definitely was not captured on the broadcast!

FAVOURITE WINNER:

Loreen “Euphoria”

WHY I JOINED:

I’ve always wanted to make connections with other people that are passionate about Eurovision, so I thought OGAE would be one of the best places to start!

FAVOURITE NON-WINNER:

Eric Saade “Popular”

CRAZIEST MOMENT:

Silvia Night’s rant after failing to make the final in 2006 – that YouTube clip always puts a smile on my face!

Melodifestivalen 2015 – Semi-final 1 Results

As only one song has won the Melodifestivalen crown coming from the first semi-final since the 2002 format change, Loreen’s Europhia, these songs will need to work very hard to get that Eurovision ticket this year.  These are my thoughts and the results of last night’s show.

Molly Pettersson Hammar – “I’ll Be Fine” – Eliminated (6th Place)         

Molly’s song starts out promising with a diva in red and a wind machine but her screeching through parts of the song made parts of her performance painful.  A bit of practice could make this song much better.  I imagine it would translate well into Afrikaans.

Daniel Gildenlöw – “Pappa” (Dad) – Eliminated (7th Place)

A sad song about his father but it feels a bit devoid of any emotion and like a bloke wander in from the street and found himself in the middle of the Swedish selection process.

Rickard Söderberg & Elize Ryd – “One By One” – Eliminated (5th Place)

A very typical Eurovision entry with the combination of different music styles, ballad and classical.  The main issue with this entry is that the singers’ voices don’t complement each other.  The girl is flat in several places.

Dolly Style – “Hello Hi” – Advances to second chance

A very saccharin sweet child-like number with three wannabe children presenters that is annoyingly catchy.  You can’t get it out of your head sort of songs.

Behrang Miri feat. Victor Crone – “Det rår vi inte för” (We don’t control it) – Advances to second chance

A boy band style singer with a Swedish rapper doesn’t sound like a good idea but it works.  The song needs a stronger chorus to make it stand out more though.

Jessica Andersson – “Can’t Hurt Me Now” – Advances direct to the final

A gorgeous golden gown with a wind machine sets the stage for this lovely ballad.  It’s a lovely song but I feel Jessica needs to sell it with more emotion.  A previous Eurovision participant with the duo “Fame” in 2003 placing 5th, this is Jessica Andersson’s 4th solo attempt and her first directly qualifying song.  Easily translates into Afrikaans.

Eric Saade – “Sting” – Advances direct to the final

A very lavish production number by the white cladded dance machine known as Eric Saade was clearly the favourite of the evening before a single note was sung.  Also a previous Eurovision participant who came 3rd in 2011 with “Popular”, did his fans justice by delivering a very up-to-date number.

What do you think of the results?
