As Eric Saade won the third semi-final he gave songwriter guru Fredrik Kempe a massive lengthy hug- Eric's continued smile said it all. There seemed to be no doubt 'Popular' is the the new 'Manboy for Melodifestivalen 2011. Eric seems set for at the least a top 3 placing at Globen. The Playtones a big dansband in Sweden right now they sang yet another Kempe tune called 'The King' although a great choice for the Globen final.
This result saw Shirley's Angels going to second chance round (hurrrah!) along with Sara Varga on 5th March this showdown will take place.
This result meant we somehow lost some fantastic songs! Simon Forsberg with perhapes the ballad of 2011-but ever worse Sebastian's fantastic song finished in a non-qualifing 5th place, surely we will see him on the charts with 'No one else can' very sooon
- we will miss Sebs here at schlagertunes .......
