The Chainsmokers and Halsey Pay Tribute to Avicii at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards

Alex Pall (L) and Andrew Taggart (R) of The Chainsmokers and Halsey (C) speaks onstage during the 2018 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 20, 2018 in Las Vegas. Prior to announcing the winner of Top Hot 100 Song, The Chainsmokers and Halsey took the time to pay tribute to one of dance music’s most influential stars, Avicii, who tragically passed away on April 20.

“His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us,” The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart said. ”He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways, and simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community.”

Halsey went on to discuss the importance of mental health, emphasizing the need to support and love one another.

Det blev ingen Eurovisionsvinst

 

 

Saara Aalto blev näst sist i Eurovisionsfinalen vilket var en alldeles för dålig placering för en sångare av hennes kapacitet!

Hon gjorde allt rätt men tyvärr kan det vara så enkelt att Finland måste topprestera i flera år i rad framöver för att Eurovisionspubliken ska få upp ögonen för tävlanden från Finland.

År av rättvisemärkta finska artister i form av rent ut sagt konstiga typer och tävlingsbidrag har lämnat spår efter sig. Det går inte att år efter år skicka sneda och vinda artister tillsammans med den ena kassa låten efter den andra till en tävling där allt handlar om yta och perfektionism och sedan skicka ett proffs som Saara Aalto till tävlingen och naivt tro att allt är glömt och förlåtet.

Nej Finland, ni är fortfarande kusinen från landet i Eurovisionssammanhang. Tvätta bort gödsellukten från kroppen och fortsätt nu att  ta tävlingen på a l l v a r  så kan ni börja prata med de stora grabbarna om några år. Kanske resulterar det i att till och med den mest arrogante Expressenskribenten slutar att skriva bittra påståenden om finska artister och att den av Aftonbladet utsände ställer relevanta frågor i presskonferensen istället för tjuvnyp. Han behöver inte bli lika inställsam som han är mot de svenska artisterna med det går att bete sig proffsigt också.

 

 

Saara Aalto lyckades ändå att skrapa ihop 23 av folkets röster vilket var något fler än vad Benjamin Ingrosso fick med sina 21. Från att legat tvåa efter juryrösterna så halkade han ner till sjunde plats och skulle utan juryrösterna varit på 23 plats av 26 möjliga efter folkets röster. Det är vad Europa tyckte om Benjamins låt . För att komma ihåg så består varje jurygrupp av bara fem personer. HÄR finns alla officiella röstningsresultat .

Nästa års tävling avgörs i Israel. Hmm.. Hoppas att Iran har slutat med att skjuta missiler mot Israel till dess annars blir tävlingen lite väl spännande .

X-Factor UK 2016

After her performances in the semi finals, bookies made her the new favorite to win the series, overtaking Matt Terry who had been the favorite from the beginning of the live shows.

She reached the finals along with Terry and boy band 5 After Midnight. She safely made it through to the second night of the final along with Terry and eventually finished as runner-up with only 8% separating the two finalists.

Voting statistics published after show revealed that she had topped the vote on the first night of the final, marking the first time in the show’s history that a competitor had topped the vote on the first night of the final but failed to go on to win the series.

Avicii´s girlfriend Tereza Kacerova defending herself against trolls in Instagram

Avicii´s girlfriend Tereza Kacerova is defending herself against Instagram trolls but Instagram deletes her postings.

Part 1/2 – Instagram took it down because apparently it violates community guidelines – please @instagram before you do it again, let me know what about me DEFENDING MYSELF against thousands of hateful comments that you DIDN’T TAKE down offends you and I will cross that part out. The way you arbitrarily choose what will and won’t get to be seen by the world is a wrong. You’re sending a message to haters that they can anonymously terrorize and there will be no backlash.

There´s a new Angel in the Heaven – Avicii

Hey, once upon a younger year
When all our shadows disappeared
The animals inside came out to play
Hey, when face to face with all our fears
Learned our lessons through the tears
Made memories we knew would never fade
One day my father—he told me,
”Son, don’t let it slip away”
He took me in his arms, I heard him say,
”When you get older
Your wild life will live for younger days
Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”
He said, ”One day you’ll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember.”
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me
When thunder clouds start pouring down
Light a fire they can’t put out
Carve your name into those shinning stars
He said, ”Go venture far beyond the shores.
Don’t forsake this life of yours.
I’ll guide you home no matter where you are.”
One day my father—he told me,
”Son, don’t let it slip away.”
When I was just a kid I heard him say,
”When you get older
Your wild life will live for younger days
Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”
He said, ”One day you’ll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember.”
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me
These are the nights that never die
My father told me

Arrhult

So Perez Hilton posted this one  about Joakim Lundell and Arrhult yesterday

Joakim Lundell is very much in line with where dance music is in 2017.

This is not EDM. This is not big room sounds. This is a radio song! And it’s great!

The DJ/producer has enlisted the help of vocalists Arrhult for his latest single, All I Need, and it’s such a bop!

I really did read poop instead of bop. I think the Youtube video had been better with Arrhult gurls instead of Joakim´s girlfriend. One of the comments says

what is wrong with her face??
too much plastic…already?

Yeah, that´s a question we made even here in Sweden.

This is Arrhult´s new video.

You can also listen to the song on Spotify.

Oh those days

Nu har jag haft den här låten i hjärnan sedan jag vaknade.

Ankie Bagger tycker jag sjunger i samma tempo. Hon dansade bakom de här två tjejerna.

Det var många som dansade som Lilli&Sussie på diskoteken.


Testa om du känner igen alla låtarna!
