One More Gold Night
This week only one country chose their Eurovision entry - Switzerland. Freschta's ballad "Gold" is emotional and could have fit among the several ballads already chosen.
Of course since this blog is this blog, we have to cover the first semifinal of Melodifestivalen. Dinah Nah made it to the final two year ago with the excellent "Make Me (La La La)". Her song this year , "One More Night" unfortunately came in 5th place. This dance song is a real early 00s eurodance throwback Not the coolest thing out there, but comfortingly nostalgic and just what you need from Melodifestivalen at least once a year.
I wasn't able to cover the other semifinals this past weekend. Next week is a big week for the big 5, with finals in Germany, Italy, and Spain. There will also be semifinals in Hungary, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, and Ukraine.
