Melodifestivalen 2012: Artists in semifinal 3 and 4 are presented

Today's press conference confirmed what the rumors already said. The most interesting part was to see how the artists were divided between the semifinals. It seems, that the fourth semifinal in Malmö will be the most thrilling one. Here we find Charlotte Perelli, Lisa Miskovsky, Danny Saucedo, duo Christer Sjögren & Lotta Engberg, the rock group Dynazty with a Thomas G:son entry. As we know only two songs qualify for the final and two to second chance. 
Dagens presskonferens bekräftade det som rykten redan låtit påskina. Det mest intressant var att se fördelningen av artisterna mellan semifinalerna. Som det ser ut just nu verkar det bli fjärde deltävlingen i Malmö som blir rysare. Där återfinns Perrelli, Miskovsky, Danny, hårdrockarna Dynazty med en G.son-låt, Christer&Lotta. Som bekant är det bara två till final och två till andra chansen. Räkna med en tuffa match.

Semifinal three in Leksand has a 'cozier' character. Molly Sandén, web wildcard Maria, Andreas Johnson and EMD-Mattias. Two young groups will be tested when Fredrik Kempe's new boy-band-project Youngblood will meet Team RedOne's Love Generation. The girls in Love Generation are reduced to three and have experiences from 2011 but on the other hand we know that good looking young boys are usually collecting more telephone votes.

Deltävling tre i Leksand är 'mysigare' till karaktären. Molly Sandén, webbjoker-Maria, Andreas Johnson och EMD-Mattias. Två unga grupper ska göra upp när Fredrik Kempes nya pojkbandsprojekt Youngblood möter Team RedOne's Love Generation. Visserligen har tjejerna i Love Generation minskats till tre och dessutom erfarenhet från förra omgången men samtidigt brukar söta pojkar vara större telefonröstmagneter.

8/2 Leksand, semifinal 3

Andreas Johnson
: "
Composers: Andreas Johnson, Peter Kvint5th time in MF.
Second in 2007 with "A little bit of love".

Björn Ranelid feat. Sara Li: "Mirakel"
Composers: Fredrik Andersson, Björn Ranelid
In the previous announcement is was Sara feat Björn Ranelid. Now it's vice versa. I'm very curios to see if the Swedish author can sing better than Sara....

Carolina Wallin Pérez
: "Sanningen"
Composers: Michael Clauss, Martin Bjelke, Carolina Wallin Pérez, F Dread.
Unknown to me but she has released an album with Kent-covers (Kent is some kind of Swedish U2)

Molly Sandén: "Why Am I Crying"
Composers: Molly Sandén, Aleena Gibson, Windy Wagner

Molly started with JESC 2006, continued with MF 2009.
I wonder if she has got some tip from her winning boy friend Eric Saade?


25/2 Malmö, semifinal 4

OPA: "Allting blir bra igen" (OPA = Michael Sideridis, Andreas Rudenå, Daniel Pergament Persson, Thor Ahlgren, Martin Eriksson, Jonathan Larsson). Composers: Michael Sideridis
Sideridis has written an academic dissertation where he compares
Swedish and Greek popular music. Look forward to hear if this song has a Greek charahter with Swedish lyrics.


Danny Saucedo: "Amazing"
Composers: Danny Saucedo, Peter Boström, Figge Boström
Back for a revenge? Last time he came second in the final.
So far he looks more happy than nervous.

Lotta Engberg & Christer Sjögren
: "Don’t Let Me Down"
Composers: Lasse Holm, Lars “Dille” Diedricson
The most experienced artists in the contest. That also goes for the composer Lasse Holm.

Hanna Lindblad: "Goosebumps"
Composers: Hanna Lindblad, Linda Sundblad, Tony Nilsson
We remember Hanna with black hair from MF 2010 when she tried to "Manipulate" us. This time her song is happier but she is promising a good show and spectacular clothes.

Axel Algmark: "Kyss mig"
Composers: Axel Algmark, Mattias Frändå, Jonathan Magnussen
Not much is known about Axel except it's said that he is very talented as a song writer despite his young age.

: "Land Of Broken Dreams"
Composers: Thomas G:son, Thomas “Plec” Johansson
This rock band was performing as an interval act 2011 when they did Anna Bergendahl's "This is my life". The group has the actor Peter Stormare as mentor and he also own the record company.

Charlotte Perrelli: "The Girl"
Composers: Fredrik Kempe, Alexander Jonsson
Winner of MF twice and of ESC once, but she never gives up and she is always wearing the highest heels.

Lisa Miskovsky
: "Why Start A Fire"
Composers: Lisa Miskovsky, Aleksander With, Bernt Rune Stray, Berent Philip Moe
An artist with credibility and, most probably, high expectations from the media and audience.
