Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Sweden's Malena Ernman sings La Voix in new version of 2009 Eurovision entry

"And now for something completely different..."
which may even slightly remind you, as it did me
when I first saw it, of the concept of using well-known
opera excerpts to tie together something old and
something new, as continues to be done to this day
by British Airways using Sous le Dome epais
from Lakme by Léo Delibes in their hugely popular
TV ads around the world, to, in effect, tie something
old and something new -the Old World and the New

Here, the hugely popular and super-talented
Swedish opera star Malena Ernman sings
a new version of La Voix, which she'll be singing
as Sweden's entry in the 2009 Eurovision
Song Contest in Moscow in a few weeks.

The video follows the dynamic mezzo-soprano
from Stockholm to the Opera House in Frankfurt,
-where she's performing this year- as well as
to her favorite nearby Starbucks.

Please click on the video and then hit HQ
and Full Screen right away to get the best
overall effect.

Below, the nightclub-style version of the song
that Malena sang and performed LIVE on
SVT's Melodifestivalen on March 14th, that
really wowed the judges and TV viewers.

Anxiously waiting for the votes to be tallied
with the rest of the performers, and then giving
an encore performance after coming in number


Malena to Moscow for Sverige!

Nicely edited clips of Malena being interviewed and
joking around after celebrating the big win, and if you
pay close attention, you'll see that the first person to
give her a congratulatory hug is the wonderful
Molly Sandén, one of our new favorite talents.


You can watch the upcoming Eurovision Song
Contest LIVE online, through Eurovision.tv!

Rock på, Malena!
Lycka till!
