Ok, so after that Danish trashing this weekend, we might as well behave a little and welcome Sanna to the ball:
Actually, in spite of being Swedish and all, we reckon Sanna is not half bad. We do applaud her voice and surprise ourselves by liking the toned down piano there. We even forgive her for all those nasal u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ns she seems to be up to. This power ballad is at least enough for a 60 w.
Throughout the 2000s Sanna has in fact tried to reach Eurovision 7 times, and judging by her somewhat troubled look we believe it’s been a long and hard struggle. That certainly is a kind of effort even we can appreciate. It is about time this lady is awarded with a chance at the big stage and we encourage you all to welcome her all then way into the final.
But then it all ends there. Because those lyrics can only get you that far. We mean, seriously. How many heartaches and pains do we have to suffer along with in order to get through a Eurovision final? Seems there will be quite a few too many this year, and Sweden’s share seems like the most unnecessary. We’re talking about a pretty blonde Swede here. Finding someone in the European Union who could make her happy wouldn’t take much effort. Just zip your heart up and keep going.
By the way, we’re also a tiny a bit concerned about Sanna’s right eye brow. It seems to be doing a pretty extensive workout throughout the song. Let’s hope there’s an eyebrow therapist available backstage in case of emergency. And we’ll bring our CPR kit as well. To undo the sad.
