The ESC is now dead and should be terminated and replaced by something new.
In my opinion, Sweden should not be a part of it anymore. I hope next year Sweden will boycott the whole affair, but I know it will not happen. It is true that it is impossible to compete in music, but this contest has now proven to be a contest for neighbors giving high points to each other no matter what and for bad songs winning year after year.
Of course I should congratulate the winner anyway, but I won’t because I didn’t like the winning song much and I don’t think the performance was the best of all. No matter that Norway is a neighbor, I still don’t think their song deserved to get all those points, even the most points ever in the history of the contest.
My favorite this year beside Sweden was Iceland. I wish they would have won instead, but they came in second place, even though they had a better song than the winning country.
However, from this year onwards, I will not care about the ESC final, since it is now obvious the best songs and the best performers have no chance of winning anymore.
I still think Sweden had one of the best songs and the best singer in the contest and deserved a lot more votes. A lot more. Should have made the top ten at least.
Heja Sverige !
