I never stopped believing....

I watched Melodifestivalen from beginning to end tonight, and (as a fan) I still can't understand why Salem didn't go to Oslo: after the international juries and Swedish juries vote, Salem was in the lead...until the televote overturned the result and sent Anna Bergendahl as this year's Swedish Eurovision entry.

On behalf of Salem, thanks to each and every one of you who voted, both in Sweden and within the international juries - it's good to know that Salem's talent is appreciated both in Sweden and on the European continent - which particularly pleases me as one of the continuing aims of Planet Salem is to publicise Salem's music both in Sweden and beyond Swedish borders....

And finally....thank you Salem and your team for all the work that you put into "Keep On Walking" from the beginning to the end of your Melodifestivalen 2010 journey. It will not be forgotten - you have won so many new fans who will continue to follow your career for a long time to come.
Next stop Gothenburg Konserthuset, 26th March - I'll be there, will you? Get along to http://www.gso.se/ to book your tickets - they're selling fast and it won't be long till the show is sold out!!

Well, to be honest, his performance on Saturday wasn't that solid as in the semi... Maybe the second pianist thing has ruined it.

I have the same opinion as kevin. In Semi he made it better. I'm happy because Anna won [she was my no.2 after Salem] and I think in Eurovision, she'll have better chances (maybe even win for Swden) than Salem. By the way I'd like to see Salem in Melodifestivalen next year!

I think that Björn made the show much better! Then can't I understand how Anna could win? Honestly I'm embarrassed that she will represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest. I think Salem had much better chances. Why he didn't win can be due to the high jury votes, because he was at the top Salems voters relaxed while the other contributions voters voted more.
