ERIC SAADE : Popular
20 year old Eric Saade is another one of this year’s contestants who’s no stranger to the allure of Eurovision. He attempted to represent his country last year by competing in Sweden’s altogether delicious Melodifestivalen with a single called ‘Manboy’. It was unsuccessful, but it would appear that the singer and part time TV presenter is slightly more ‘Popular’ in his homeland this year – as he’ll represent Sweden in the second semi final.
We have to admit to possessing a massive soft spot for Swedish pop – it’s where much of the best pop music comes from – and ‘Popular’ is catchy as all get-up. High-energy dance/pop with not one but TWO key changes and a video clip dance-off that showcases some very smooth moves. This could very well go off with a bang.
