Can Nina's Tick Tock Rock- take her to the final, her performance is said
to have what it takes, Nina has transformed herself from West End Musical Star
to Rock'n'Schlager chik- 'This is the real me' says Nina who sang rock before her Musical breakthrough that took her to Scamalot in London ! The songwriters had a big success with The Poodles 'Night of Passion' before.
Another one to watch according to rehearsal audiences is Emilia & Alcazar have that winning performance, certainly 'You're my World' has a great hook. Both Emilia or Nina I cannot see
actually making the grade in Semi 1- based on our schlag-o-meter. Just going on hearing the small snippets available from Stv, I am thinking Alcazar with Scotts should go
D T G - I think The Scotts have a great fan base & number 1 album at the moment. Yet in the ideal schlager world, Shirley Clamp should be on her way to Globen. She may have to go via 'second chance' with perhapes Marie Serneholt's 'Disconnect Me'
Lets see what results the new rules & format give us. I must say the songs so far are much better than in 2008, the standard seems to have been raised just in this round one I think 6 of the songs are worthy of a Final 10 placing....What more can we expect?
Will that glitter ball spin so FAST and completely out-of-control with Nina's raunchy style?
