Melodi Grand Prix 2012: Semifinal 2

Here we go again! The second semifinal of the mgp 2012 was last night and i was very excited cause i liked all the songs and my favorite in the whole MGP was in this semi so lets start:

1.Cocktail Slippers - Keeps On Dancing

This was a fun and full of energy performance, the lead singer was good, her stage presence was fabulous and even if the song was a bit repetitive i really liked their performance and it was a good start for this semifinal.

2.Isabel Ødegård - I’ve Got You

This song was one of my favorites since i listened the 24 songs of this year, its so sweet and calm just like Isabel that looked so gorgeous, i loved the dress. The performance wasnt bad but her vocals could have been better.

3.Tommy Fredvang - Make It Better

This song was in my bottom 3 of this semifinal, it was the one i liked the least but he is so charismatic, i fell in love with him, it was a strong performance because of his fantastic stage presence but i have a doubt did he sing the whole song or all we heard were the recorded backing vocals? I hope to listen more of his vocals on the final cause i can see this getting in the top 4. 

4.Rikke Lie - Another Heartache

The first thought that came to my mind when i saw her was "WTF is she wearing?" imo that dress looked very bad. This is a lovely song that didnt sound as good as the album version, she has a very interesting voice but i guess she was nervous cause her vocals were shaky in some parts, the performance was ok, i didnt get the choreography of the guys but it looked good.

5.Malin - Crush

1 2 3 Hello, this is soo Junior Eurovision, yesterday i was so mad with this, i just cant believe that from 3 electropop songs they voted for this one. There is not power on her perfomance, too bland/flat, her vocals were kinda bad but that doesnt matter cause she is Malin and im sure a lot of kids voted for her. The song is catchy but thats all.

6.Plumbo - Ola Nordmann

The winners of this year are here and theres not so much to say, i like the song but i dont like them, the performance was just ok not a wow performance and i think Norway is not going to be on my favorites this year.

7.Minnie-Oh - You And I

This song is so good but the performance wasnt good enough, she is really nice but she doesnt have charisma but she can work on that and come back to MGP again next year cause i like her.

8.Rikke Normann - Shapeshifter

I fell in love with this song when i heard a preview of 30seconds, it was so good that i couldnt wait to listen the full song so you all can imagine how i felt when i heard it. It was great to had an interview with her before the semifinal and i knew she was going to rock that stage. I was kinda nervous before the performance but when it started i felt so much energy and when it finished i was so happy, what an AMAZING PERFORMANCE, without a doubt the best of this semifinal, her vocals were great and she looked fabulous. The guys of King Wings Crew did an awesome job and what else can i say? I love it, it was the perfect performance for this song. Norway made a huge mistake but i hope that Rikke gets the wildcard cause she deserve to be in the final. Bravo Rikke! you and all the Shapeshifter team deserve a huge round of applause and a standing ovation!
