I heard the winner song and I`m pretty sure the best song one.

Surely not every year, or you'd win every year?

I wasn't trying to be antagonistic, it was a genuine question.

I disagree, this year was the best decision.. but Sweden hasn't selected the best people from Melodifestivalen.

2008 - Empty Room (Sanna)
2009 - Stay The Night (Alcazar) or Hope & Glory (Mans)
2010 - Keep On Walking (Salem)
2011 - Right Choice
2012 - Right Choice

2010 was the worst by far - I don't think they would have won with any of the above, sans Loreen of course.

Congratulations Loreen! Definitely deserved.

I have to say though, it really annoys me the way most of the eastern European countries give their neighbouring countries the best points every year, no matter how good/bad the song is.

Didn't Sweden pretty much just copy the Norwegian selection model after seeing how successful it was, though?

I'd also like to add that I thought it was a pretty bad show in general and the hosts were awful.

LOL. Oh, sweet Acidburn. We didn't copy anything, it's the other way around. :lovers:

What are you disagreeing on? I said we organise the best national selection every year. Not that we select the best song every year. Cause we don't.

Ah, my bad. I agree with you then. The selection process pretty much brought Eurovision back from the grave in Norway.

Yay so happy, Loreen is just WOW, pure magic ... I had goosebumps throughout the whole performance, it was even better than the first one she did back in february. I will never get tired of this song <3 :music:.

Norway was FUCKING RIPPED OFF this year! I thought "Stay" was going to be one of the highest entries to finnish!!! But the last....I can't even. This year it was all about Sweden and rest of the Top 3 getting all the votes + voting your neighbours.

I really like Cyprus' song as well, can't believe it did so poorly... almost as good as Sweden in my book.

It's always been about voting for your neighbours.

Yeah the voting process is a complete and utter joke. I take comfort in that at least the right song ended up winning.

Norway was a complete joke with their act ripping off both Benny Benassi and Eric Saade.

It shows up especially when there is so called "bad year" like this year, when obviously good songs aren't there so the public has no other choice but to vote for their neighbours. But then again, Norway didn't get any votes from most (any?) of their neighbours and it wasn't a bad song.

I have to say - Loreen was amazing - and Sweden deserved it even last year with adorable Eric Saade, so it paid back to them :) And without a doubt, Sweden will make it BIG! I love their national finals, they are so glamoruos! I can't wait Stockholm 2013! :)
