Really? I always thought As I Lay Me Down sounded like something from 2002, or a slowed + reverb version of Jill Johnson's Crazy In Love

Maybe because it has some 90's Europop/dance influences? But that's intentional, and that trend has been coming back in different phases throughout the years as well (we literally won ESC with a straight up 90's-inspired banger in Euphoria).

Lol Jill Johnson wishes, Crazy in Love was always an entry for the 50-70 yos Gunillas and Barbros out there, and that's fine too but had no youthful or contemporary touch to it what-so-ever.

I have heavily disliked all of Wiktoria´s attempt. There´s something about the tone of her voice I can´t stand.

I see, I can get that, but like discussed in here I do think her voice is good, but she has a tendency to oversing it and at times it's very strained. I am not sure if that's what you refer to though?

Can't say it looks exciting, quite the contrary.

Wiktoria is the only name, perhaps Loulou as solo (it could be in Swedish since she just released her first Swedish solo song). Panetoz could be fun potentially.

Melanie Wehbe deciding to actually compete as a singer is quite interesting to be honest

Never thought I'd see Smash into pieces at anything connected with Eurovision. Well, if their song is a masterpiece as usual, then I might just have an early favorite already

Oooo, found a new band to listen to. Hell yes :love:

EDIT: WAIT NO WAY. I KNEW THEM BEFORE, THEY WROTE THIS?!?!?? HELL YES, MF JUST GOT INTERESTING!

Holy cow! What a fantastic song! Didn't know the band before. Just listened to some other songs of them. I am in all for it, even though I doubt Sweden would ever send a rockband. But great band! xheat

Wiktoria is a hit or miss, either I love her entry or heavily dislike it. I hope it's not some country inspired radio song, I'd rather leave country for Anna Bergendahl.

Maria Sur and Ida-Lova are really interesting choices tbh. It’s good because the contest needs new blood

I still don't understand how she didn't win second chance with Statements, it was captivating and a lot better than Anton
