Very MJ-inspired falsetto-led funky electropop song.

Melodifestivalen 1 performance

How the same thing looked through the crowd's eye

I can't believe how shit and crappy Melodifestivalen was this year. This is basically the only song which could effortlessly bring Sweden inside the Top 10 of Eurovision.

It's fresh, modern amd catchy and Benjamin is very charming + perfect staging.

I'd say LIAMOO and Mariette have a fair shot at doing good and Jessica is there for all the schlager-nostalgia.

It's quite good, not Eurovision sounding at all.

JT reject kinda song.
this one is completely in the vein of last year's Robin Bengtsson entry, continuing the style over substance trend :)

Yeah! - I am really happy about it. I watched the Swedish and Norwegian National Finals with some friends together and we were really pleased with this decision.
Personally, I was rooting for Margaret as well and I was really surprised she ended up #7. That's a great rank for a foreigner ;)

Benjamin was brilliant on the show and to be honest, I think he can even win Eurovision if other countries ruin their performances and if the juries don't feel Estonia at all :D

I didn't think I liked this too much, but whenever it comes on my itunes, I really get into it. I think it could do quite well.

I don't like it, it gives me a lot of "The Weekend" bb shit that I don't like. But again, with this I guess Sweden will make a top 10 spot.

The staging is absolutely fantastic and it lifts the whole song up to another level and I'm pretty sure that Sweden will qualify easily but damn, those vocals are tragic!

^it's the live backing vocalists instead of playbacked vocalists in the Melfest

This is usually a problem with eurovision entries. Backing vocals on a studio recording always sound different/better than live. If one backing singer is off key, then it makes all the singers sound off key. Finland's entry also suffers from backing singers being too prominent and it affects the overall sound.

Sweden have totally won the staging battle this year, even moreso than Estonia. It looks so spectacular that its a shame the best staging is being used for an ok pop song. That said, i think this is Sweden's best entry since Heroes. I can't go on was a bit average whilst If i were sorry just ripped off Matt Simons. :lol:

It’s gonna be a minor hit in Europe, I’m sure!

I really love the song, it’s like it came straight from Biebers last album, love the ad-libbing towards the end and he’s nice to look at too
