I will be popular. That is the starting line of my favoutite song's chorus. The song entitled 'Popular' is sung by Eric Saade. I thought this song will win the Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf, Germany but he only managed to be the second runner up. Not bad because the result he got is the Sweden's best result since 1999.
 His reaction after the grand final was: "We're insanely happy to have been the ones to take Sweden back to the top of this contest! This will bring Sweden's artist next year a great momentum." Backing singer Joel Börjesson: "This was amazing, incredibly exciting voting. This was Sweden's best position in twelve years!"
 Here is his performance during the national selection in Sweden (Melodifestivalen 2011). The performance, I think, is better than his performance in the grand final of ESC 2011. Enjoy the video!

The Winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2011 is...

The winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2011 is...AZERBAIJAN!

After an exciting voting in front of tens of thousands of people in a fully packed Esprit Arena (renamed as Düsseldorf Arena) and millions of TV viewers all over Europe, it was finally Ell and Nikki from Azerbaijan who received the highest number of points from televoters and juries from the 43 countries participating in this year's edition of Europe's favourite TV-show!   I am happy for both of them for winning this year's ESC but I'd love Sweden to win this year as the country has a pretty good song and loved by millions of people in Europe. Anyway, I'm quite happy that Azerbaijan win this year.

That will be it for now. Have fun watching the winning performance from Ell and Nikki!

How do you think Ell/Nikki's performances was?
