Anette: Eurovision isn’t just about the final show but also about the national selections and all of the songs that didn’t quite make it to the big stage. Let’s take a look at one of my personal favorites from the Swedish national selection Melodifestivalen:

Highlights of Eurovision – A personal NF favorite:

Entry: “I Thought It Was Forever” live at Melodifestivalenlive at Stockholm Pride 2011
Performer: Shirley’s Angels wikipedia
Country: Sweden Sweden (entries & results) in the ESC
Year: 2011 Melodifestivalen 2011: Participants & Scoreboard
Songwriters: Robin Abrahamsson, Alexander Bard, Bobby Ljunggren, Henrik Wikström
Result: reached the Second Chance

Anette: This song was my favorite in 2011 and I never really understood why it didn’t qualify for the final when “Popular” did. Well, it turned out quite alright for Sweden that year (3rd place for Eric Saade) so I don’t complain. 🙂
