Closest MF since 1978 – One point in it…


Melodifestivalen always seems to disappoint me, but not this year. First off, Felix Sandman – many peoples idea of the favourite – came tenth in the televote after mopping up jury points … and then, it came down to a one point shoot- out, which makes it the closest result since that classic tied contest in 1978.

As you can see by the results table below, the Mamas – who backed up John Lundvik to a 6th place finish last year – have taken the crown in their own right this time round, with their little ditty entitled “Move” – which is what I hope they’ll do come Rotterdam time.

This marks the first time there have been back-to-back winners of the Melodifestivalen since Family Four in 1971 and 1972. The contest is dialling back the old times tonight!
