Loreen: “It didn’t bother me that the audience was singing Cha Cha Cha”!

Loreen gave her first interview on Swedish TV after being the winner of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest and talked about the moment when during her victory the croud on the arena was singing “Cha Cha Cha”.

More specifically, Loreen said that:

“I mean Käärijä is so (f-word) awesome! An amazing performance. And it’s nice, when acts get such support. You can’t just go “Shush shush, you can only think I’m good“, that’s not how it works!

No, no. That doesn’t bother me. I have to work a little on my ego.”

Finally, she was also asked what message she would like to send to the Finnish representative and she stated:

To Käärijä I’d like to say that it’s not every day, that you see creators be that authentic on stage, and he has an authentic expression. He is himself. It’s pure all the way through, and that’s why people cheer for him. That happens when you are authentic. So I know things will go well for him. Things will go really damn well for Käärijä!”

During the rehearsals and the pre-parties we have seen several times the two artists coming in contact and chatting, showing the excellent relations they have with each other.

Eurovision 2023: The odds after the first rehearsals of the countries of the first semifinal!

The first rehearsals for the countries of the first semifinal have been completed and, as it is expected, the odds have been refreshed for those ones. It is the second year in a row that the press center has been closed so there is no more information about the perfomances than the TikTok videos that Eurovision account have published. As a result, there are no big chances in the first days compared to last years.

1st Semi Final: The race of qualification

Most countries have been stabled in their position, except Switzerland who has overpassed Croatia and is now 7th in the betting odds to qualify for the Grand Final. Remo Forrer odds are between 1.33 and 1.4 compared to Let 3 who are between 1.36-1.55. It is also crusial to mention that Portugal has grown the gap with the Netherlands and, despite being 10th, has more chances to qualify compared to “Burning Daylight“. Also, Latvia, Malta, Ireland and Azerbaijan seem to loose ground and that it will be difficult for them to qualify to the Grand Final of Eurovision 2023.

1st Semi Final: The Winner

For the first time since 2007, televoting will decide 100% the result of the semi final, which means that the ten countries who will qualify and also the winner of the semi will be determined only by the viewers. Finland is ahead of this race and it is believed that “Cha cha cha” will win the televoting of the semifinal. The dynamic stage presentance, catchy chorus and also the fact that Kaarija is closing the show are making the odds to believe that he will overtook Loreen and “Tattoo“, the big favourite of this year’s competition. Honorouble mention to Israel and Noa Kirel, who has decreased the difference with Norway and is coming for the third place after the great reviews of her first rehearsal. Could “Unicorn” be the dark horse of the semifinal?

The Big Final

All “blue” for Finland and Israel, who are probably the gainers of the first rehearsals, in the betting odds. Kaarija has decreased his difference with Loreen and is now aiming for the first place. Also, Israel has overtook Austria and is now in the 7th place of the betting odds after her dance break. However, Loreen and “Tattoo” are still on the top of the scoreboard with a “safe” gap from Finland, until now. Sweden has managed to transfer the Melodifestivalen’s staging to Liverpool, despite the fears and difficulties, and did not dissapoint.
