Running order for next Saturday's Melodifestivalen final

1. Darin - You’re Out Of My Life
2. Pernilla Wahlgren - Jag vill om du vågar
3. Andreas Johnson - We Can Work It Out
4. Timoteij - Kom
5 Peter Jöback - Hollow
6. Ola - Unstoppable
7. Jessica Andersson - I Did It For Love
8. Salem Al Fakir - Keep On Walking
9. Anna Bergendahl - This Is My Life
10. Eric Saade - Manboy

OK so now that Andra Chansen is over (I didn't agree with the result as I wanted Alcazar and Pauline or Pain of Salvation to progress to Globen) the final running order for next Saturday's final is now clear.

Looking at the running order, it's a very good draw position for Salem - it would have been nicer if he'd have been drawn last or second from last, but 8th could be a lucky number as he was drawn in 8th position in week one - when he won of course!

I've been a fan and follower of Melodifestivalen for many years and it would be fair to say that there have been better years in the competition: however I also feel that this means that Salem has a better chance than ever of progressing to Oslo, and finally making that big international breakthrough that I have been campaigning for on this blog since it was established at the end of 2007.

EDIT 07.03.10: Last night I posted my comments about the other songs, however I have decided to move this to my other blog EuropeCrazy as I feel this would be more appropriate and would avoid any confusion, in case anyone thought these were Salem's views, when, in fact, they were my own.

Hi Ryn,

No I wasn't annoyed at all, I appreciate everyone's views and I'm glad that you took the time to post your comment. All comments on this blog are always very welcome.

You are absolutely correct when you say that people may say "Salem's blog says..." and I wouldn't want anyone thinking that these were Salem's views when they were not.

Thanks again, and keep in touch!

Maybe I overreacted since the blog is officially unofficial. Thanks!

"Officially unofficial" - I love that description :))
