Sweden: Melodifestivalen odds shortly after the announcement of the distribution in the semifinals!

The announcement of the distribution of the artists in the semifinals of Melodifestivalen 2021, as well as the order of their appearance in them, has caused some differences in the bets.

The last place, in the fourth semifinal for Eric Saade, dropped his odds and brought him to the first place, together with Danny Saucedo, who will also appear last, but in the first semifinal. It is common practice for Christer Bjorkman, who decides the order of appearance, to place in the last place of each semifinal, the strongest participations. Tradition wants the last place of the fourth semifinal to always be the big favorite of Melodifestivalen, although last year in this position was Hanna Ferm, who finally took the fourth place in the final.

After Eric Saade and Danny Saucedo, Dotter follows, Tusse and The Mamas close the top five. Charlotte Perrelli is in seventh place.

Melodifestivalen 2021 starts on February 6 with the First Semifinal and ends with the Grand Final that will take place on March 13. 2021 is the last year that Christer Bjorkman is at the helm of Melodifestivalen. He would very much like to achieve Sweden’s seventh victory and tie Queen Ireland.

Sweden: Melodifestivalen to be held normally in 2021

Brainstorm on developments…. By tweeting on its official Twitter account, Melodifestivalen announced that it would run smoothly in 2021. This means that the choice of Swedish participation for 2021 will once again be based on this format. Thus, The Mamas will not be able to represent their country at the Rotterdam competition. Nevertheless, it is not excluded that they will participate in Melodifestivalen 2021 claiming their sects!

As Christer Björkman, Head of the Swedish Delegation, said in his statements:

“It is a very unfortunate situation for all artists. I feel really bad for all the artists and especially for the Mamas, who will not be given the opportunity to sing on the Eurovision stage. It is also very unfortunate that a 64-year-old tradition will break”

So the winner of Melodifestivalen 2021 is expected to represent Sweden at next year’s Eurovision contest!

Below you can remember the song “Move” with which The Mamas were to compete in Rotterdam in May!

US: With entries by state the US song contest as Christer Bjorkman reveals

An interesting interview was given by Christer Bjorkman at Mellopodden and talked about the processes being done in the US for the creation of the American song contest.

Last year, Christer Bjorkman literally split his time between Sweden and the US, having taken over Eurovision’s move across the Atlantic on behalf of EBU. Together with his compatriots Anders Lenhoff, Ola Melzig and Peter Settman, all of Melodifestivalen’s production partners, they have taken over the creation ff the American song contest rom scratch.

Christer Bjorkman thinks it’s time to move Eurovision to America, as traditional music contests (Pop Idol, X Factor, The Voice, etc.) are losing their momentum.

From what Christopher Bjorkman has always said in the American song contest, the various US states will compete.

“Interestingly, each state generally has a rather distinct musical identity, along with, of course, its adjacent states as well. This will almost automatically give us a variety of types of music in the competition”

Christer Bjorkman for the American Song Contest

As with regular Eurovision, both established and young artists will participate. After the end of Melodifestivalen 2020, Christer Bjorkman and his team, after fully defining the product, will present it to American television stations to buy it.

The interest already says it’s big, since everyone who works in television in the US knows Eurovision, they just wonder how it can be done in their country.

There is great interest in this. Next summer, we need to know if this will happen and how.

After four years where Christer Bjorkman was a Producer of the Eurovision Song Contest, he will only travel to Rotterdam as Sweden’s only dead of delegation. The focus of his interest is now abroad and as he typically states, it is something that intrigues him.

“It’s so fun to work on something new. It feels a bit like finding another jar of jam in the closet I’ve never seen!”

The American Song Contest is planned to come to our screens sometime in 2021. Unlike the Eurovision Asia Contest, which has swamped for political reasons, at least as Christer Bjorkman claims, he is optimistic that this project will go ahead as it concerns one only country!

Cyprus: “Eurovision 2019 song has already been recorded”

According to today’s tv show(19/11) of ALPHA Cyprus, With Love Christiana, the song that will represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2019 has already been recorded.

It seems that all the rumours about Cyprus and Eurovision 2019 will end very soon. The panel of the show, With Love Christiana, revealed  moments ago that the song that will represent Cyprus in the next Eurovision Song Contest has already been recorded and that they have already listened to it.

Commenting on it, they said it was a very nice song, even better than Fuego.

According to our exclusive information, on Thursday 22nd of November, Alex Papaconstantinou travels back to Cyprus along with the man who helped to change the fate of CyBc  in the contest, Christer Bjorkman, to sort out the latest details.

It was not revealec who will be the artist who will wave the Cypriot flag in Tel Aviv, but the latest rumours seem to look more than certain that this is Tamta.

EurovisionFun already knows the title of the song, but with due respect to CyBc, we will not reveal more details before any official announcements.

Stay tuned in EurovisionFun for everything that concerns the Cypriot participation in Eurovision 2019.
