Mans Zelmerlöw have the odds and the fans on their side. Sweden’s representative in the Eurovision Song Contest has long been the favorite to take home the victory in the 60th edition of the competition, and so far everything has gone according to plan. But in the final pop some additional concerns up.
The popular trio Il Volo, three handsome tenors from Italy, is perhaps the most obvious of them. The group goes out last of all in the starting field and teach thus be fresh in the memory of those voting viewers. On Friday afternoon’s public dress rehearsal got the heart to melt both in the arena as the press room with her languorous love song.
Since it is of course also one of Zelmerlöws personal favorites, superstar Guy Sebastian from specially invited Australia. He has delivered safe and flawless singing in all its repetitions, but the number has been accused of being a tad boring.
Such accusations have been 16 year-old Nadav Gudej from Israel hardly had to endure. His dance “Golden Boy”, with lines of text “But before I leave, let me show you Tel Aviv”, has this week been an appreciated break in the ballad compact competition. The Boy in the golden shoes has become something of a bubbler.
– He is sick charming on stage and it’s a song that you … Yes, I go around and sing on it for days on end, noted Mans Zelmerlöw on the following Thursday’s semifinals.
Also the dramatic ballad “A monster like me” with the Norwegian duo Morland & amp; Debrah Scarlett has climbed upwards.
A clear favorite from the start is Russia Polina Gagarina and her power ballad “A Million Voices”. Gagarina has held steady in the top three among the tips.
– She is svinbra and the song is also good, commented Zelmerlöw the Russian contribution earlier in the week.
