Melodi Grand Prix 2012: Semifinal 1

Here we go! The 1st semifinal of the MGP 2012 was on saturday and its time to comment. The intro with the orchestra was fantastic, the stage is kinda cool and Marte did a good job, now lets start with the performances:

1.Irresistable - Elevator

Everybody expected some bad vocals in this song but i think the girls surprised us cause their vocals were good but to bad that they doesnt have charisma, there was no interpretation just some girls singing and thinking about the moves they were going to do while they were singing. The choreography was very weak
and they didnt have a strong attitude on stage so if they want to come back next year all they need is to work a lot on their stage presence.

2.Kim André Rysstad - Så vidunderlig

A nice song sang by a good singer with a very boring performance, sorry but there was nothing in his eyes, i guess he was nervous but what can i say, i didnt like it.

3.Reidun Sæther - High On Love

I was very nervous before the performance cause she had a virus infection in her throat and i didnt know what was going to happen, in my opinion her song is the best one in this semifinal and i was worried that because of that virus she couldnt sing well and for that lose a spot in the final. The performance started and i was like "omg she is singing" i was so excited. I think she was very nervous because of the virus and she didnt want to mess with her vocals, so im sure this performance is going to be a bomb in the final. I hope her voice is on 100% for the final cause that will make her feel stronger and she will own the stage. Im very happy for her and she really deserve a huge round of applause and a standing ovation, BRAVO REIDUN.

4.Rudi Myntevik - You Break It, You Own It

I like this song and he did a good performance, he has charisma and knows how to move on stage, so good job Rudi.

5.Lisa Stokke - With Love

I love her, she is so sweet just like the song, her vocals were great and even if i didnt like the dress so much she looked good, this is going to be one of the songs im going to listen a lot this year and im sure everyone will remember this performance cause its was really good and the key change part was fabulous, well done Lisa.

6.United - Little Bobbi

Before the semifinals i didnt like this song but now i kinda like it, i really liked the performance, the guys did a great job, it looked amazing and their vocals were good. The best part of the performance was when Benedicte appeared dancing, i just love her, she made me watch the performance a lot of times now, it was an interesting performance.

7.Nora Foss Al-Jabri - Somewhere Beautiful

I knew she was going to be the winner before the semifinal, she is very talented but i dont love the song and it wasnt the best performance, i think it was pretty bland, i guess its because of the song cause she is great singer but this song is not good enough for eurovision.

8.The Carburetors - Don’t Touch The Flame

I dont like this song but they did a very strong performance so they deserved the final, Congratulations to The Carburetors.
