I've been saying my opinions of the songs since the 1st semifinal so you can have an idea of what i think about each one but now before my comments about the final, i want to see the winners of the webjoker competition from 2010 and 2011.
In 2009 the webjoker idea started and in my opinion a horrible song won, then SVT changed the singers but the composers who were the singers of the demo wanted to be part of the entry and they were the backing vocals of the band Highlights. The song in the MF stage wasnt that bad but it still was a horrible entry.
Highlights and MiST - Come and get me now
Melodifestivalen 2010 - Semifinal 2 - Result: 7th place - 10.978 votes
Then in 2010 we got a new rule in the Webjoker competition: a live tv final and 2 winners, a year with better results cause the 2 songs that won were good.
Jonas Matsson - On my own
Melodifestivalen 2011 - Semifinal 1 - Result: 7th place - 10.680 votes
Julia Alvgard - Better or worse
Melodifestivalen 2011 - Semifinal 4 - Result: 6th place - 18.867 votes
6th place its the best result that a webjoker song has got and i really think that if Julia was on Semifinal 3 she would have been in the top 5 at least. Now here we are again in this year Webjoker competition, a lot of fans think that its kinda imposible to get at least in andra chansen if you are a webjoker entry but there are 2 or 3 songs this year that i can see getting a great result next year.
From the 8 songs in this final there are 3 songs i kinda dislike "All day, all night", "Forever by your side" and "Ingenting, ingen", if the winner is one of those im going to be dissapointed.
Then there are 3 songs i like:
"Need to know" a song that sounds really nice.
"Beautiful love" has an anthemic chorus and i would love to listen it with female vocals even though with male vocals sound great.
"A heartbeat away" its also very strong but it needs a lot of things like a better ending.
And last but not least the 2 songs that i LOVE and i think can get a great result in the Melodifestivalen 2012:
Marilyn Monroe: Super catchy, modern and so strong, also i love the guys and it would be amazing if SVT let them as the singers.
I mina drömmar: What i can i say? did you guys read my comments of this song in the semifinal 1?. If it was my decision i would choose this one cause its the only one that made me feel something the first time i listened. Now im going to say that i really would love that SVT let Maria sing the song in the MF, im sure she would be one of the best singers next year. As i said the 1st time i wasnt expeting to find a great song in the Webjoker competition but here it is and i really wish all the best to the composers and Maria on Monday.
Now all we have to do is wait and see whats going to happen and of course if you are Swedish you have to vote, the lines will be open at 13 and will be close at 14 on monday so you have 1hour to vote.
