Semi 2: 13 Sweden
Maybe they think it is too soon for Sweden to win again. Maybe they think Sweden has grown too influential within the EBU. Maybe they would like to travel somewhere else.
Some may even have taken issue after reading about that time when Måns Zelmerlöw made a few less tactful comments concerning homosexuality - something he has repeatedly apologised for since.
All of this will probably matter very little once the televoting masses are let loose. They will know very little about these things and care even less. They will see a charismatic and convincing performance of a hit-friendly and strong song and are likely to vote like crazy.
And then the tiny details for the record. No, I am not biased - I don't automatically support Sweden, something the readers of this blog should be aware of. Yes, I think the song is good also without the visual presentation. Yes, I think this is the most likely winner of the whole big shebang in Vienna.
Yes, without a doubt. And my jaw will drop should it place lower than third in the final.
My grade: 5/5
