Melodifestival part 2

We all watched the second show from Göteborg live via the SVT website. My mom's still visiting, so she wasn't quite as bemused as she was during her first exposure last week. Soon, she'll be an expert.

It was an amazing show, really typical Melodifestival, with real head-scratching decisions by the telephone voters. Case in point: one of the winners was Louise Hoffsten, with her song "Only Dead Fish Follow The Stream". Yes, that's right. Dead Fish. Not only in the title, but over and over again in the chorus. But don't take my word for it:

The best act, Erik Segerstedt and Tone Damli, made it to the second chance show at least, along with a Bieber-wannabe which Sooz rather liked. Next week will be Skellefteå, which should be interesting. Shows in smaller venues are always more fun!
