 MorenikThis is it! Stop everything! Ring Jon Ola Sand and tell him to cancel the contest, we have a winner! How do I know, you ask? Any woman who would bother singing a song to me about wanting to marry me so desperately has to be a winner! Finally, a wife! Someone who clearly won’t mind my awful cooking and terrible hygiene! Douze for Krista! *sniffs* ugh, and ein Dusch for me!

Emma MagnusonThis song is great, nice job Nordic brothers! I know it’s cheesy but I love it, it’s so catchy and addictive! I’m gonna suggest to Princess Madeleine to play this song during her wedding ceremony. You know she is getting married soon with a commoner, don’t you? Even if she doesn’t agree, I’ll order the DJ to play this song, he will obey me of course!

This will be my wedding song. It’s fun and easy….just like me. I’m planning on marrying rich though cause I may be dumb, but I’m not stupid. Just like Krista I’ll change my last name, drink coffee with your mother and make the cutest babies. These lyrics speak from my heart, if you still don’t sing along after 1 minute into the song tto this catchy tune, I guess that means I’m smarterer than you.

Eau d'yre  LizzyEau: Oh, I have something to tell you Liz…! O dear!
Liz: Oh, what is it? Did you try on a the new panty color from Christian Dior?
Eau: No no no… it’s about something else. Something completely else. You know I rarely visit normal supermarkets…they’re too common for me. But this morning I read in the magazine ‘Cuisine Pour L’Upperclass’ that they awared a new tart from one of those supermarkets with 5 golden stars. My curiosity was hard to control, I had to try one of them. So I rushed in my Mercedes… (to be continued)

Scotty Too HottyWhy does this remind me of Rockefeller street? If childrenare watching the show, they will absolutely love this because it’s completebubble gum pop! It’s incredibly catchy which will have some appeal even thoughit’s not a musical masterpiece. She can marry me any day, that’s for sure!Queen Bee? Yeah looks like she would rule the roost a little! This performancewill no doubt be full of energy and enthusiasm which could have lots of peopledancing – especially in Malmo! What a crowd pleaser!

Britni SpirsovicI am in proper acquaintanceship with erhm, how do you say it, Katy Perry and this song was one of her rejects that someway somehow flew all the way to Helsinki. Katy Perry, Perry Katy, Krista Perry? It is very catchy and fun to listen to. The first time I heard it in homegirl Katy’s home studio, I liked it and did a duet of it with her. Then, in UMK, boom Krista’s magic. Magic is in the rhythm, in the beat, in the lyrics, in everything. Wunderbar.

Petronella PoetryWell I have the same dream as this Krista has. I like this songs chorus a lot, even if it is a silly kind of jazz. Why waiting for some guy to marry with, why not come to me Krista so we do it? I think the two of us would together be well fit.

Alex ChandhokThe main problem with this song is that I’ve heard it loads of times from people like Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani. I can’t deny the catchiness of it (to an extent), but it is so unbelievably trashy and the lyrics are about as one dimensional as you can get. The focus on this will always be on the stage show, and for that the song suffers. I can see this squeezing into the final, but beyond that I think It’s success will be severely limited. Finland could have done so much better.

Glittery S BobSeriously?! This girl is so desperate to look for a husband that has to scream out loud that she “would do it for me”? I think I will sacrifice myself and take her for wife, only to rid your self of this abominableness!

Grandpa WatermanEhh? My ear aids must be broken. Did she say she wants to marry me? Do anything for me? If that so I will send her to a naughty girls school untill she learns to behave! And to be taught to sing like that lovely Dutch girl!

King Valentino XVIIThis song is a soooo trash and a everythingaa I ate about da musica industry today. It’s a makes me soo ANGRY that my english get a very bad now. My apologies. This song is a soulless. I no understand a anything of the people who enjoy it. Fans of the song are no fans of mine. It is a troll song without the warmth, the heart, da character. I ope this song fails and this kind of music gets purged from a the planet. It’s crap like the prices of Azerbaijan coffee. I sorry, I no usually this angry.

RobertIs this a joke? I was near to fall down from my chair when I heard this for the first time. It’s very crappy, cheap and meh song. It sounds like music in my circus, which is playing during the monkeys showing their tricks to the public. I think this was a cheap attemp of a poor girl to bring something new to her private life. That’s why she’s singing (if we can call it like that of course) “Marry Me”, but I don’t think it would happen in the nearest future after her performance. Young guys must be scared of her energy. Backing singers wearing undefined clothes which makes them looking like stupid dolls. And the dancer women makes impression of madhouse lodgers

Dark MasterIf this is your way of taking my money, you can forget about it. Not even if I am your master, and you are my slave. Too cheesy and not even memorable for me. I am not too sure if you are trying to make people to marry you, or make them file restraining orders against you. I really think it is a bad omen to get married on this song.

    FULL COMMENT OF MADAME EAU D’YRE AND LIZZY:

    Eau: Oh, I have something to tell you Liz…! O dear!
    Liz: Oh, what is it? Did you try on a the new panty color from Christian Dior?
    Eau: No no no… it’s about something else. Something completely else. You know I rarely visit normal supermarkets…they’re too common for me. But this morning I read in the magazine ‘Cuisine Pour L’Upperclass’ that they awared a new tart from one of those supermarkets with 5 golden stars. My curiosity was hard to control, I had to try one of them. So I rushed in my Mercedes to the city and….
    Liz: Oooooh…..??
    Eau: So I stormed to the bakery section, bought one of those prized tarts , went back to my car and I just couldn’t control myself, hihihihi, so I took a bite from it. Oh and I can tell you Liz, it was wonderfully delicious. I’ve never tasted anything like that before. It was so edible that I ate the whole tart. I meant to go and try just one, but I couldn’t help myself but had to buy a whole truckload from them.
    Liz: Oh?? How many did you buy?
    Eau: Quite a few boxes, I didn’t count them. But do you know what was even more surprising? I was so curious about how the the ingredients, so I asked the lady at the bakery counter about the recipe. She said she didn’t know, but what she could tell me was that the tart was made in Finland, based on a traditional Finnish recipe.
    Liz: That sounds amazing!! What a surprise…Who would’ve thought something so good could come from the European continent?
    Eau: Exactly my dear…some continental tarts can taste surprisingly well. The tart from Finland is a huge surprise. 4 Points to the Finnish tart.

    Oh Finland, Finland, Finland..After all the tidal wave of rage for Mikael Saari not being chosen has calmed down a bit I see many people getting to understand this entry a bit better. It’s pure irony and sarcasm at itse best performed by a very likable singer like Krista. It is a complete effort that constantly grows on me.
