2) John Lundvik – My Turn

John Lundvik will be accompanied by Lars Saflund & Stefan Nyqvist. On stage we should expect moonflowers as a backdrop and pyrotechnics. Christer Björkman says that this is a beautiful and nice ballad, while John Lundvik says that his song is a modern ballad.

Lyrics

Breath
In and out
I see clearer now

And I know
Even though I’m scared this time

How could I say no
When everything I feel is right

So tell me baby
tell me that I’m ready to fly

Cause everything around me
saying smile you’ll be fine

I ain’t gonna miss it
I ain’t letting go
It’s my turn

Time
Heart and mind

Are ready to learn
Here and now

And I know
Even though I’m scared this time

How could I say no
When everything I feel is right

So tell me baby
tell me that I’m ready to fly

Cause everything around me
saying smile you’ll be fine

I ain’t gonna miss it
I ain’t letting go
It’s my turn

I know that I’ve been hidin’
But I won’t anymore

There’s nothing that can stop me
I’m will stand till I fall

I ain’t gonna miss it
I ain’t letting go
It’s my turn

Oooooooh
Oooooooh
Oooooooh

I can’t say now

Oooooooh
Oooooooh
Oooooooh
Ooooh

Breath
In an out

Yeeeeah
So tell me baby
tell me that I’m ready to fly

Cause everything around me
saying smile you’ll be fine

I ain’t gonna miss it
I ain’t letting go
It’s my turn

I know that I’ve been hidin’
But I won’t anymore

There’s nothing that can stop me
I’m will stand till I fall

I ain’t gonna miss it
I ain’t letting go
It’s my turn
now

3. Renaida – All the Feels

On stage, Renaida will be joined by Amir Ashoor, Michael Sjösten, Brian Madika, Martin Jonsson, William Boo & Albin Lindén. A white, orange and black LED light and LED staircase are expected to be on stage as well. Christer Björkman describes this entry as a fresh pop song with a little in the R&B direction, while Renaida says that the song is a mix, it’s speed but not extreme, and it’s not a ballad. It will probably have fun, superfluous energy.

Lyrics

Eeey

Said goodbye but this time do not feel right
got too many hi’s inside
I do not want to say goodnight

You and I wanted to be polite
but mmm even tho we tried
we just could not stop this time

Cause you got away with your hands on my skin
and I let them into my mind

It was graceful, not shameful
from the bed to the kitchen table
we did every single kind bebe

You give me all the feelings
you give me all the feelings
and I can not get enough
I want another rush

You give me all the feelings
you give me all the feelings
yeah you got what I love
I need every touch

You give me
I want another rush

You give me
I need every touch

Endless flavors I just want to taste,
try all of them you my fave
so many games we can play

Just as long as I still get my say
commit it and I’ll obey
I’m loving this give and take

You got a way with your hand on my skin
and I let them into my mind

You give me all the feelings
you give me all the feelings
yeah you got what I love
I need every touch

You give me
I want another rush

You give me
I need every touch

Cause you got a way with your hands on my skin
and I let them into my mind

ey

You give me all the feelings
You give me all the feelings

Eeeey

You give me all the feelings
You give me

ey

 

4.Edward Blom   -Livet på en pinne( Life on a stick)

Edward Blom will be on stage together with his house dancers Keisha von Arnold, Lisa Arnold, Daniel Koivunen and Kenny Lantz. SVT released that we should expect a LED light in explosion, Gold confetti and fireworks on stage. According to Christer Björkman this entry is something completely different and that it will be crazy. Edward Blom hints that this song flirts with older styles, including big bands from the late 60’s. The song is a bit sentimental in the verses.

Lyrics

Dagar som kommer dagar som går
Dom kommer aldrig igen

Så det är bäst att idag passa på
att leva för fullt min vän

Ja varför försaka det goda som bjuds
i tillvarons gästabud

Livet på en pinne
Göra var dag till en fest

Ta varje liten chans du får och njut
Minut för minut

Livet på en pinne
Nå’t för varje sinne
Ja låt ditt välbehag få blomma ut

Jag bjuder in till kalas
ingen smal sak

Här ska tas tabberas
nåt för var smak
För en rätt på mitt sätt
med kryddor och fett
och en gnutta salt ger livet
på en pinne
Nå’t för varje sinne
Ja låt ditt välbehag få blomma ut

Låt alla sinnen få sitt

Ljudet av en kork som skjuts ut ur en flaska
champagne

Synen av en glaserad spädgris över öppen eld

Smaken av en bit Stilton som sakta smälter i
munnen

Doften från nygräddat rågbröd

Känslan av att knåda en biff tartare

Bjud sedan hem var kamrat
är konceptet

Dock ej bara på mat
är receptet
Så låt vänner och släkt
med livshungern väckt
tillsammans leva livet
på en pinne
Nå’t för varje sinne

Var glad och nöjd med allt som livet ger
Ibland får man hummer
ibland får man palt
Kovan den kommer och går

Ibland bara vatten men nästa dag malt
Var tacksam för det som du får

Blomma ut

Livet på en pinne
Göra var dag till en fest

Ta varje liten chans du får och njut
Minut för minut

Livet på en pinne
Nå’t för varje sinne

Ja låt ditt välbehag få blomma ut
I full blom
Ta varje liten chans du får och njut
Njut njut
Ja låt ditt välbehag få blomma ut

5) Kikki Danielsson – Osby Tennessee

Joining Kikki on stage we shall see Sulo Karlsson (guitar/backing vocals), Anna ”Idde” Schultz (piano/backing vocals), Gustav Horneman (drums), John Schubert-Dobro (pedal steel), Maja Stenhram (bass), Lena Magnusson (accordion). The stage will have a “Nashville city night” backdrop with a pink light on Kikki & floor lamps. According to Christer Björkman the song is a great song, just like her “My Way.” Kikki Danielsson describes the song as a quiet country song with steel guitar and a little accordion. There is a lot of feeling in it.

 

Lyrics

Jag var en lintott på fem
när jag lämnade mitt hem
pappa stod på gården
och vinkade farväl

Och så började färden
som tog mig ut i världen
men bakom ljus och glitter
fanns det tårar i min själ

Och från Visseltofta Osby
till Nashville Tennessee
med hjärtat fyllt av sång
och själen lätt och fri

Drömmarna blev verklighet
och formade mitt liv
en tös från norra Skåne
från Osby Tennessee

Med ett dragspel runt min hals
fanns det inga gränser alls
jag blev hyllad och beundrad
allt jag gjorde blev till guld

Men så kom en annan tid
jag förlorade en strid
och rösten fick en sorgkant
av längtan och av skuld

Och från Visseltofta Osby
till Nashville Tennessee
med hjärtat fyllt av sång
och själen lätt och fri

Drömmarna blev verklighet
och formade mitt liv
en tös från norra Skåne
från Osby Tennessee

Kanske söker jag än
den stora kärleken
eller finns det dom som aldrig
nånsin hittar hem

Och från Visseltofta Osby
till Nashville Tennessee
med hjärtat fyllt av sång
och själen lätt och fri

Drömmarna blev verklighet
och formade mitt liv
en tös från norra Skåne
från Osby Tennessee

En tös från norra Skåne
från Osby Tennessee

6) Kamferdrops – Solen lever kvar hos dig

Kamferdrops will be joined by Keisha von Arnold, Lisa Arnold, Kenny Lantz, Anna-Klara Folin as dancers, Melanie Wehbe as backing vocalist and Jonas Davidsson with the saxophone. We should expect a pink and white backdrop, heavy smoke, soap bubbles and fireworks. According to Christer Björkman, this is the Norwegian exclamation mark, and it will be very exciting to see how this will be praised by the public. Kamferdrops says that “Our thing is that we build bridges between dansband and tropical. We have never heard anyone else who has done it. We have done the same thing, where we modernize dansband with this song.”

Lyrics

Solen lever kvar hos dig
Kvar hos dig
Jag minns det som igår

Allt ändrades för mig
jag gick men lämna aldrig dig
vart än livet förde mig
ville jag tillbaks

Solen lever kvar hos dig
Kvar hos dig
Jag minns det som igår

Solen lever kvar inom mig
Hör du mitt hjärta slå
Solen lever kvar i alla år

Solen lever kvar i alla år

Allt var så länge sen
Jag hoppas att vi ses igen

Känna om det lever än
Allt vi hade då

Solen lever kvar hos dig
Kvar hos dig
Jag minns det som igår

Solen lever kvar inom mig
Hör du mitt hjärta slå
Solen lever kvar i alla år
Solen lever kvar i alla år

Solen lever kvar hos dig
Kvar hos dig
Jag minns det som igår

Solen lever kvar inom mig
Hör du mitt hjärta slå
Solen lever kvar i alla år
Solen lever kvar i alla år
Solen lever kvar i alla år

7) Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance you off

This is the second time that Benjamin Ingrosso will be competiting in Melodifestivalen. On stage he will be joined by Stran Cetin and Maria Hazell. According to SVT, the backdrop will be red and orange in the refrain. Christer Björkman comments that this competition ends with dance, while Benjamin Ingrosso describes his entry as having a very minimalist club vibe. The text is a little darker than “Good Lovin’.”

Lyrics

I see that look in your eyes
but I’m not feeling no pressure
Pressure

Feels like I’m stuck here in time
while I’ve been trying to forget ya
Forget ya

Just wanna da dance you off
So do not you da da dare wait up

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

And I might now
Yeah I might now

Just trying to have myself a time
So I just do not care if you mind

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

And I might now
Yeah I might now

Treating you good we were gold
I dug you like you were treasure

Så ikke handle som jeg er den grimme når jeg vet du
vet bedre

And I
And I

oh I used to think that you were worth the best in life
Cause I loved it I loved it

Feels like I’m stuck here in time
while I’ve been trying to forget ya

Just wanna da dance you off
So do not you da da dare wait up

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

And I might now
Yeah I might now

Just trying to have myself a time
So I just do not care if you mind

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

And I might now
yeah I might now

I’m just gonna dance you off the floor
I’m just gonna dance you off the floor
I used to think that you were worth my every night

Just wanna da dance you off
So do not you da da dare wait up

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

And I might now
Yeah I might now

Just trying to have myself a time
So I just do not care if you mind

Cause I just want to feel the mood
Girl with anyone but you

I might now
