We are so glad to see Linda Pritchard back in Melodifestivalen - she missed out in 2010 with 'You're making me hot hot hot' that did not make the final. For 2011 she has a strong schlager-ballad called 'Alive' It is going to be a tough semi final this saturday in Malmo, that may turn out to be a battle of the bands...as Love Generation & Melody Club are favourites right now to go direct to Globen. Then lets not forget Linda Bengtzing return with a new schlager anthem in swedish. She is continuing the back to schlager theme this year
Melody Club look & sound strong enough to win this round with
'The Hunter' - looking like a flashback to the The Ark in 2007- with some chess pieces thrown in. I like the tune, just on first hearing yet still not convinced Melody Club are the best choice to take Sweden back to Eurovision final. Rock-pop bands too often get lost in the euro-glitter
a better choice could be Love Generation's track.
