Next Saturday she will compete against Jimmy Janssen's - 'Amanda' to continue on in the contest. If Sanna doesn't make it I don't know what I will do. I NEED to see her sing this live on march 10th!
So congratulations Sanna! Keep your fingers crossed everyone!
For now you can enjoy her spectacular performance from the Semi-Final.

Due to the songs being leaked SVT has cancelled the last semi-final scheduled to take place tomorrow night.
Or at least thats what my friend over in Sweden just told me before laughing his head off and telling me he was kidding. As you can imagine I will make him pay dearly for this! LOL
The songs will be posted online in about 30 minutes! I can't wait!
On Wednesday night I'll be boarding a plane and heading to Stockholm to get ready for the FINAL on March 10th! I will give you all updates direct from Sweden so stay tuned!

Lets begin! The links will work for the next 24 hours.
1. Mans Zemerlow - Cara Mia
This song blew me away. it's written by Melodifestivalen regular - Fredrik Kempe. It is in my top 5 already for 2007. I'm really worried about this song it HAS to make it to the final, but with competition so strong this week I hope it isn't passed over. If this was in week one or two it would have made the final for sure! I honestly doubt it will make it but it is my favorite song by far this year.
2. MissMatch - Drop Dead
This one's good, catchy and rocky. But with such strong competition its doomed to fail.
3. Magnus Carlsson - Live Forever
Magnus hasn't let us down! This song is upbeat and dancey and very camp. Sounds a little like Bosson to me actually. When he described it as a mix of A-Ha & Limahl he hit it BANG ON. It sounds a little 80's and a little 90's with a 2007 twist! Sounds like a choir of kids in the backround?! Ohh nice touch!
4. Sheida - I Mina Drommar
I'd best describe this song as very 'eastern' sounding. It's got a great beat and is very funky. I love that the song is going to compete but I'm afraid the voting public won't connect with the song.
5. The Attic Feat. Therese - The Arrival
This is a great dance song and I can imagine hearing it at a club. Therese is a fan favorite but will the public vote for such a modern sounding track? I think it's too dancey. As much as I like it I think it's doomed to fail unfortunately.
6. Sebastian - When The Night Comes Falling
A Swedish Idol finalist who took the place of Agnes when she was disqualified. The song is very typical of an ex-idol. Its rocky and very catchy. I can see him singing it on stage now. It's something everyone will like and I think he will make it to Andra Chansen easily.
7. Sonja Alden - For Att Du Finns
Sounds an awful lot like Shirley Clamp to me! The song is very strong for a ballad. It's very powerful and uplifting. It keeps building up as it goes along which I LOVE. Here comes the climax... and ... Ok I officially love it! Normally I would say it's too slow to qualify but it seems like a lot of slow songs have made it through to the final...so she may have a chance!
8. Nanne - Jag Maste Kyssa Dig
This song has been HIGHLY anticipated and expectations are HIGH! I think people will vote for this song because it's Nanne and not because it's the best song of the night. Personally I'm a little dissapointed with the track. There's nothing wrong with it! But I don't think is the song that should win Melodifestivalen.
If there is any justice Mans will make it. If not we'll have the 3rd crime of Melodifestivalen.
WOW... ok now for my predictions:
Through To The Final:
To the 2nd Chance Round:
Sebastian or Sonja Alden
Tomorrow we will find out if I was right.

A duet with singer 'Agnetha.' She definitely makes the song when she comes in at the 2nd verse!
Gary is one of the greatest song writers of all time. I was devestated when his solo career crashed after his 2nd album. He is currently enjoying success again with the re-formation of Take That. 'Lie To Me' was rumoured to be the 3rd single from the 2nd album but was cancelled after the album flopped. The song is one of my favorite ballads of all time. The song and vocals can best be described as haunting.
