The 2009-50: No. 21 - All the battles I lost and the battles I won, this will be the one

"Hope and Glory" - Måns Zelmerlöw.

As it turned out, it was a battle lost, as he lost out to Malena Ernman at the final hurdle: but like two years ago, he probably won the war (IMHO). No worries, cause he's the new king of Swedish light-entertainment!! Extremely excited about him presenting Melodifestivalen although I carry some regret that he may never get that chance to represent his country at ESC, in time-honoured Magnus Carlsson style. This wasn’t as good as "Cara Mia" but Mans sold it with James Bond-appeal, although I could probably have done without the 'Pussycat Dolls' accompanying him at this year's MF.
You may be surprised at the relatively low position of this song on my chart this year compared to...ooh, let's just say four other MF songs? This was purely based on the fact that in the long run, "Hope and Glory" didn't have the longevity that those other songs enjoyed at EuropeCrazy HQ.
