Well we didn´t get any more snow this night, we got more warm winds instead. So the snow is now melting away fast. But the morning walk was really nice out in the forest and the rest of this day will be dedicated to sowing all the seeds that arrived yesterday. Probably I will take a look at the world cup in downhill skiing too.
The big swedish final then has ten songs and it all starts again :-) This is something really hughe in Sweden. The competitions take place in our big icehockey arenas, so there are live audienses with up to 13000 persons! Guess if the singers are nervous :-) At the same time tthere are more than three million people watching them on TV :-) The winner of it all then goes to the big final somewhere in Europe. The country that won last year is having it this year. Because there are 34 countries competing there are two semifinals before the Grand Finale. I don´t remember how many goes to the big final, but i think it´s about 25. During the semifinals all people in Europe can phone and wote for their favourite. Of course one can´t vote for ones own countrie.
The thinning of the forest continues.
The big final is much like the semifinals, but even the countries that didn´t reach the final can vote for the finalists. As You understand this is a hughe event, but funny enough, we never remember who won last year :-) I think that last year there were over one billion people watching this all over the world. Because it´s quite popular outside Europe to. This is not a way to be a big star or world famous. As far as I know there´s only one group that really made it after this and that is the Swedish group ABBA and they made it really big :-)
So now we are going to talk about this for the comming five weeks. Most probably we will heckle those who got so nervous that they sang out of tune :-) or perhaps forgot the lyrics. Most certain is that no one is going to openly like the winner :-)
I really hope You could understand all what I written, I´m not sure I do :-)
Have a nice day now!
