My comments on every song:

1) Soma Manuchar - Strong: What is this?!  :o  :doh: A woman who has lost her clothes somewhere is screaming like a pig to be slaughtered!  :ohmy:  :ack:

2) Paradise Oskar - Da da dam: A nice little ballad, but he should sing a little bit louder.  :)

3) Jimi Constantine - Party to Party: Bon Jovi's song modernized by a guy who does not have a very good voice and who thinks gays and teen girls would vote for him because he takes his shirt off. He ruined the song with his utterly awful and silly performance. Poor Jimi - please change your performance if you want to get the wild card.

4) Milana Misic - Sydämeni kaksi maata (My heart of two countries): I hadn't listened any of the songs in this semifinal earlier, so I was a little bit disappointed, especially because I couldn't hear / understand most of the lyrics she was singing.  :-[ The melody is nice - but what an awful dress she had!  :doh:

5) Father McKenzie - Good Enough: Best and happiest song in this semi-final! I totally liked it.  :) And also, one of the band members is Jochum Juslin from Åland!  :biggrin:

thanks a lot for the links dearest Niko, i hope next show we can spend together....
i was very disappointed : the hosts are good, the lightning and stage great, the voting ball is weird but at least it doesn't take forever... however, the songs were great in audio, but live they were bad : Soma made a terrible live, static, ugly dress, Jimi was over the top, boring, annoying, they both deserved to be out... Milana looked awful and she made the most boring live possible with such a nice song, sometimes her vocals were awful (and i'm glad Niko thought so too)... the best performances came from Paradise Oskar (thanks to simplicity) but i hate he lyrics of his songs (but he's cute), and Father McKenzie did a great live, but gosh do i hate that boring song

Thanks Morgan!  :hug: So, we agreed on the songs.  :) I am now waiting for the 3rd semifinal and hoping that there would be really good and listenable songs.  ;)

"Pamela" in semi 3 is amazing in audio, let's see what they do live
i think Cardiant can win the finnish ticket, or Marko or Slata & So. if they make a good live, what you think Niko?

I hope it isn't Cardiant, because it reminds me really very much of Czech 2007 and the soloist can't sing live very well. Marko is quite good, I must say and so is Johanna. I don't know Slata & Co - I have never before even heard about that band - so I can't say anything about that song.

lol  :laugh: my thoughts exactly.

my biggest problem with paradise Oskar song is that he looks like he just doesn't care and i agree with you about the lyrics Morgan. my personal dislike of the lyrics is they seem fake.

The Winner is:
Paradise Oskar.

Such a bad choice from Finland. I thought that I could call in this year in eurovision for Finland, but for that song absolutely not. I'm disappointed of that result. I think no final for Finland this time. Good Luck!

I am really happy that Paradise Oskar is going to represent Finland in stead of for example the rock bands.  :tumbsup:

My teacher in classical singing, who is also an ESC fan (not so devoted though, that he would join any forums  :P ), said to me that Paradise Oskar had by far the best voice yesterday and he has also the most perfect breathing system when singing. Singing is so easy to him and he really enjoyed of performing his song.  :) Good luck Axel!  :goodjob:

How odd.  Strangely it was the vocals that put me off with this song.  It's a sweet ballad but the voice just didn't do anything for me ???

Agreed.
Hopefully juries will make up for last year's injustice towards Finland.
