Can they reach the Headlines?

After two average heats at Melodifestivalen, this weeks batch from Goteborg sound a lot more promising!
Based on the 1 minute clips I am impressed with Alcazar's 'Headlines'!
This song was initally offerred to Eric Sadde who won last weeks heat with 'Manboy' and the rumoured group who submitted the demo were the colourful Caracola!
There is a lot of strong competition in this heat with a mix of everything from schlager in girlband Timoteij and The Lion King in Yeba!
The final is dominated by testosterone so it would be nice to see some of the girls make it tomorrow night. I think Darin is a dead cert qualifier with the other direct spot most likely for Alacazar with strong compeition from 'Sweden's Got Talent' winner Eric Linder.
The other remaining spot could be Crucified Barbara (what a frightening name!) but I would love to see Timoteij or Elin make it.
It is all about Alcazar for me. This is a group that never fail to provide us with fantastic fan favourite songs every time they enter. Many questioned their return this year particularly after 'Stay the Night' but this is a very different song similar to 'Alcastar'. They always provide us with fun pop that makes us feel good.
Many in Sweden believe that it could be their time to be sent to Eurovision and I agree!

Scandi Super Saturday!

These are the 10 songs competing in this Saturday's DMGP 2010!

'All About a Girl' is co written by Ronan Keating but it is all about Sukkerchok for me!

As Scandinavian Super Saturday is only a few days away the excitement is building as Norway and Iceland also select this weekend!

In Iceland I am hoping Hera wins and I think she is in with a great chance as her song is so different to the othe finalists.

Over in Norway I am torn between a few favourites, I love A1, Dridrik and Venke and have a soft spot for Maria.

I like Rolf Lovland's song but I felt Maria was weak vocally during the semis.

Alexander's entry doesn't grab me as 'Find my Girl' did.

'Yes Man' is catchy and may be in with an outside shot.

KOK is the one song I fear and hope that Norway doesn not vote for it as there are much better and more appealing songs in their final for the Eurovision audience to enjoy.

In the end I think it will be between Dridrik and A1 and it's a tough one to call!
