Well, I was trying to avoid posting videos from the various national finals as I wanted to introduce each country’s entry when I do my usual run down in advance of May’s shows.
However, I’m making an exception for this one as it’s a guilty pleasure and it’s Tuesday evening, so very close to the hump of the week and we probably won’t be seeing this in the final.
It’s Samir & Viktor who are competing in Sweden’s popular Melodifestivalen with “Bada nakna” a Swedish schlager anthem extolling the virtues of nude bathing (!). The winner of Melodifestivalen will represent Sweden in Stockholm in May. They didn’t make it directly through to the final from their semi-final, but they did get through the “Second chances” show which means they could still get a place in the final and go on to win and represent Sweden (the winner has come via “Second chances” before).
It does seem a bit unlikely that they will manage that although they are currently number 1 in the Swedish charts, hugely popular in bars and clubs and are also most played on Spotify in Sweden so you never know…
Enjoy for now though in case we don’t see them again as it would be a shame! I love it 🙂
