Melodifestivalen: the last word

I promised not to mention the "M" word on Planet Salem again, but I couldn't help it one last time after reading the news about the changes in the voting system at Melodifestivalen 2011, Swedish juries will be axed in favour of international juries and televoting. According to this article at Aftonbladet today, http://www.aftonbladet.se/nojesbladet/melodifestivalen2011/article8393449.ab if the new system had been used at Melodifestivalen in 2010, "Keep On Walking" would have won.

Oooooh... and that's probably why they change it.

Yes indeed :)

Fingers crossed that this new system will result in Sweden sending an entry with a better chance of success at Eurovision. Things can only get better! Although I doubt very much if we'll ever get another song in Melodifestivalen which is anywhere near as great as the timeless classic that is "Keep On Walking".
