Tim Schou (from Denmark's 'A Friend In London') was recently in London to do a one off solo gig while the Danish rock band took a short break from putting together a debut international album. Tim Schou did a interesting
Interview with alfitude Infact Tim did have a solo career and his own album called "Far away from London"
that is actually very different from the danish rockers indie sound- certainly the band's Top 5 position seems to have
worked well in opening a lot of doors to a sucessful international career for 'A freind from London' certainly Tim
made an inpact himself on the night- with a look and style that very almost put Jedward in the shade-
Look out for the new single 'Calling a friend' and that new album promises to be just as good.
Check out the duran-ish NEW VIDEO here
--and for something very completely different from Danish DR Tv see Tim Schou singing Moves Like Jagger (Maroon 5) & even 'somewhere over the rainbow' on Hidden Stars (winning finale-performance)

There has been alot of talk on the Eurovis' UK streets as to just who can follow up on Blue's massive appearence in Dusseldorf- although the lads scored 11th place in the final
they brought UK back onto the Eurovision favourites.
For Baku there has been talk of JLS or even Steps- Well Steps have confirmed a comeback massive 2012 tour but no Eurovision. Perhapes a more curent band like The Wanted? they would be just perfect- if you want any further evidence check out the boys most recent single "Glad you came" -it's even 3 mins long and a tune like this would certainly go down a storm, even create a full on lovestorm! this single is now big hit downunder as well
Of course the BBC would still need to have a National competion to choose the best track- come on lads you are Wanted in europe as well.
The swiss National final is coming up soon on 10th December 2010- So alot of Web voting has been going on to select the finalists- it's all very confusing actually how-when the songs are selected! we are confused. The first of the three stations in Switzerland DRS3 have choosen the first 3 tunes for the Swiss final.
Two of them have a very R&b flavour which is a little different for the swiss entry.
Guillermo Sorya (above) is a popular swiss soul singer- who is very easy on the eye & has a great voice to boot! his song is 'Baby baby baby'
it's certainly is a popular entry already- however check out some of Guillermo's other singles - 'Donut' & more recent 'Love Trigger' I am not completely sold on the song 'Baby Baby Baby' certainly as an artist Guillermo is great for Baku.
The other two tunes- are not real winners however the swiss answer to the Sugababes are in with a chance with a tune called 'Black Symthony' check out their vid as well as Fabienne Louves & Patric Scott singing 'Real Love' the third song- Here
Atomic Angels -so which one is Jade?

Alexander Panayotov or александр панайотов as he is know to his friends- has an album
coming out soon 'Cocoon' in homeland Russia sung in english- we are hoping Alexander will hold back a tune for Baku- as he has competed in the russian national final 3 times before 2005-2007 & 2008- and one time for Ukraine in 2009- for now here is a great teaser for Alexander's new vid'
for 'Til Tomorrow'

-Erik from EMD puts on his Melo-socks for 2012
To quote Donna Summer-'there's a rumour- rumour has it- all around the town' ..
This is certainly is true in Stockholm-town- as Svt prepare for Melodifestivalen 2012. The press story's we like the best
and hope will become a reality is for E M D the three guys gave us the fab 'Baby Goodbye' in Melo 2009. Although the
lads have a new album coming up- they will only appear in Melo 2012 as solo artists. Last year we had Danny-
(In the Club) so next year could see 2 submissions from both Erik Segerstedt & Mattias Andreasson.
Another boyband to go head-to-head is both members of 'Rebound' Eddie Razaz & Rabih Jaber who recently split-up.
Lili & Susie could be following up on 2009's 'Show me heaven' as well as Timoteij another great idea, we approve of these two.
Former Eurovision winner Helena Paparizou is said to be part of a schalger-diva battle between Helena & Charlotte Perelli. We think charlotte could have the upper-hand here in the shape of some Kempe magic for her song.
As well as Jenny Berggren formally with Ace of Base- and Jenny did sing in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2011. However Jenny has never done Melodifestivalen. (she did do Dallas! no sorry- that was Debbie- lol)
Martin Rollnski from BWO & Alcazar's Lina Hedlund both could to be going solo for Melo next year. As well as Eric Saade's main love interest Molly Sanden & huge euro-dance artist September who has never done Melo before.
A strange-but maybe true rumour is for Fredirk Kempe to write a rock-tune for H.E.A.T who have the added advantage of a popular new lead vocalist Erik Gronwall ( he won Sweden's Idol 2009 ) We are thinking young Erik has just enough time to grow his hair longer before Febuary 2012 !
-Turning up the H.E.A.T for Melo 2012
The rumour we so want to be true is the return of Magnus Carlsson- it's been 5 years since his a-ha inspired Melo submission 'Live Forever'
Magnus previously from Barbados- has always been just perfect for Melo/Eurovision and coupled with the right tune could do Sweden proud.

of The 20 best songs we have -on repeat--
So you may well notice alot of German melodi
pre-selection songs in the chart for October. Like the grand tune from Modern Talking's Thomas Anders (No:15) who has wrote of Eurovision before- however in 2006 was 2nd placed
when Texas Lightning won with 'No No Never' Plus certainly the tune what may take the prize for the best ever disqualified tune in Eurovis' History In 2009 -Georgia 's Stephane & 3G who did not really want to put in?
or did they? the group have turned out to be more than a political novelty (No:12)
