Sweden, semi 4: safe beats modern

We already knew it, didn't we? Sweden has always had a tendency of favouring the safe and the familiar over the modern and progressive.

Semi four showed no signs of the Swedes thinking in new ways.

Bang into the final went the happiest chicken on the farm as well as a rock ballad so kind it would not be progressive anywhere anymore.

The modern dance tune by one of the world's hottest songwriters right now was sent to Andra Chansen instead.

Oh, well. We all knew it in advance, didn't we?

I'm just happy about Lasse Stefanz not advancing further than they did, and slightly surprised that Melody Club didn't make it past place seven.

However, I can't see this semi final shuffle the cards much before the grand final. These two new finalists will most probably stand no chance when the high points are distributed on March 12.
