    Sweden SWEDEN 2020 - The Mamas - Move

    Sure, but there's also a large reluctance to participate in Melodifestivalen among serious professionals or simply the fact their work doesn't fit the format at all. For example, Laleh is a fairly successful songwriter and I'm pretty sure she will never consider participating at least not as an...

    Sweden SWEDEN 2020 - The Mamas - Move

    Oh to me the anti-vote was so painfully obvious I got that feeling "gaaah, what the hell am I doing here among these f*ckn' people". It was an ugly face of resentment and rejection I hope I never see again in Melodifestivalen. The rule of belittling mediocrity and the fancy of the familiar over...

    Sweden SWEDEN 2020 - The Mamas - Move

    Well, I don't know, we have had only glimpses of info coming out of the process of song selection. I think there is a huge influence from the big record companies - say Warner Sweden, probably a couple of more or less free guaranteed spots to each of them. A tradition I think goes way back to...

    Sweden SWEDEN 2020 - The Mamas - Move

    A-lister, you've been stating there's "cronyism and corruption" or something alike in Melodifestivalen for 8 years now. Is it an opinion you have? Or a hunch you have? Or do you have some solid evidence corruption is actually the case? To me it kind of fall flat as critique. Over the years there...

    Sweden SWEDEN 2020 - The Mamas - Move

    Actually no, :o:)xrose I wouldn't want Laleh to enter the Melodifestivalen drama. She's busy making her a place as a producer/songwriter in Los Angeles, extremely goal-oriented and serious. I wish her all well and success and none of the awkwardness she would feel participating in...

    Why on earth is the title "?????? Think Tank"?????

    Why on earth is the title "?????? Think Tank"? Think Tank? Seriously, are the admins by this in some way questioning the outcome and winner of Eurovision? As far as I remember the new winner and new host country used to very quickly be reflected on the site. Please don't say we are to expect a...

    European commission report: Western Balkans and Turkey Media and Freedom of Expression

    Found this report whilst searching for something else. I think it's a relevant and interesting reading for the forum (if someone feels up to it :D), as a background to Eurovision perception in the area and opinions in EU. Western Balkans and Turkey Media and Freedom of Expression Fact-finding...

    Time to remove the Eurovision subforum?

    Is it time to remove the ESC XXXX - Song, Artist, NF Discussions-subforum and the country ESC threads? During the little bit over a year since I join the forum, the number of active posters in this section can be counted on one hand, sometimes up to ten perhaps. None of which have any mutual...

    General sticky political thread/Quick "What's going on in your country?" political version

    Sometimes it makes sense to create a thread for a subject, sometimes you just want a shout out for some event/news which just happened or an idea you just came up with. As it is now the risk is big either the thread will be a failure or the topic will not be brought up at all. Most posts in...

    Transfer poll ownership to admin - possible?

    Is it possible to transfer ownership of the poll-part of a thread and making the poll-result confidential? I have no interest of knowing the details behind the result and I rather prefer to have out of my hands. If so, could it be marked confidential as well? Thread to transfer ownership.
