Here at -schlagertunes, HQ M.E.L.B - our blogging is on a winter/summer (GMT) break. Blame the London Games 2012... however please do not worry we will return to regular blog-casts later on - it's just there is not too much Melodifestivalen or Eurovis' stuff to report or review just now. Except for-
A very interesting developement has happened over in Sweden's Top 10 singles. A massive seller has turned out to be the Cypus entry from Baku- Way back in January 2012 Ivi Adamou's song for Cyprus became a fan-favourite in Eurovis'fandom and certainly Cyprus delivered with an amazing performance. To be honest I was expecting Cyprus to perhapes give us a Top 5 placing maybe? instead a mere 16th placing in the Grand Final for lovely Ivi. Sweden gave Cyprus there 12 points- to make up the total of 65 points on the scoreboard. Plus this 16th placing still turned out to be Cyprus's best result since 2004
Lisa Andreas sung 'Stronger every minute'
Then the unexpected the swedes followed this up with an amazing chart run for 'La la Love' as a single-
As you would expect Loreen's 'Euphoria' enjoyed 6 weeks at poll No: 1 position in Sweden back in April this year already, yet after the Swedes Eurovision 2012 win you'd expected more chart success. Instead Ivi is looking up, up , up towards No:1 in her own right with 'La La Love' while Loreen is at No: 9 !
This shows how Eurovision votes- don't measure always sales and Hit potential.
