The 2009-50: No. 25 - Everybody take a bow, cause I'm the one and only

"The Queen" - Velvet.

It looks as if she will always be an also-ran at Melodifestivalen, although I’ll never understand why. Elaborately staged, but underneath all that this was just a great dance-pop song which has soared in my iTunes play count over the year. If someone like, say, Kylie recorded this, it could have been a massive worldwide hit. And that stop-start moment at 2:15 into the song - "people take a bow/show me that you love me" is just total genius.
