You're the one for me

Wishful Thinking Signs that Måns Zelmerlöw Will Win Melodifestivalen 2007

1.) He's already racked up more YouTube views per day than any of the other contestants and the most overall (this was true when I actually calculated it about a week ago).

2.) He's got the Martin Stenmarck post-victory pose down already:

Martin:


Måns:


(Let's just hope he'd get a higher ranking than Martin at Eurovision itself!)

3.) Sebastian and Andreas Johnson (and maybe the Ark, who I do want to see do well) will end up competing for the same votes, as will all the ballads (Tommy Nilsson, Sonja Aldén, Sarah Dawn Finer, and Marie Lindberg) and the more traditional schlager (Anna Book and Sanna Nielsen), leaving who to sweep up? Måns! (I know, that's unlikely to happen, but this is wishful thinking, remember?)

"Cara Mia" is my favorite song in the finals, and I'm hoping it'll win; at some point, I may have to attempt to explain how absolutely amazing it is, but it wouldn't be necessary for you to appreciate it--it's one of those songs that's instantly excellent. Here's his semifinal performance:



Fantastic.

Next up: something not related to Melodifestivalen, or even Sweden.

Ah Mans. He is indeed my newest celebrity crush. RAR> he had better win now. I am eagerly anticipating an album and official website.

I like "Cara Mia"!

I'm looking forward to the album, too! That's another reason why I hope he does really well--maybe that'll convince him to keep making this type of music instead of going down the singer-songwriter route he said he was going to. He does already have an official site, though it's been revamped and no longer has as much content (including pictures) as it used to.

Oh, good, J'ason--I'm glad you do! Plus, hopefully that's another positive sign for this coming weekend...

Oops, Paul, scratch that--you can actually still get to the old version of his official site here; it's got a lot more information (and pictures)!

I have to admit that I've had a crush on Måns since I first saw him in Idol 2005, and was very surprised that he "only" made it to No. 5, especially when you consider that Agnes (the winner) and Sebastian (the runner-up) are TOTAL BORES, and.. sdfpigdf...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Sorry I dozed off by just talking about them.

Anyway, here in Sweden, Måns was just voted the Sexiest Man in Sweden by QX!

Måns have has a website since last year (click me here!). That's just the main entrance, to go, um, deeper, just click on the triangle located on the page's top right, where it says Till manszelmerlow.se . There are very nice pix, as well as an "Inside Look" to the making of the video.

Really? Good for him! I'm really thinking the Ark will win, but I'm hoping for Måns.
