Sweden 2016 - Samir & Viktor - Bada Nakna

Now here's a curious bit of business. You know how hard it can be to get your hands on clips of the qualified MelFest finalists once they've done their semi-final turns. It's all part of that delightful Swedish fairness thing that makes it pigging difficult to actually report on the goings on of the previous week. Well, Daily Motion seem to have found a way around that and have published some mic-only videos of the plucky contenders.

And boy do they make strange viewing!

Witness the terrible twosome here. OK, so we knew they were going to be no Caruso twins, but their vocal only performance is somehow simultaneously both ear-bending and incredibly charming. On top of that, watching the songs stripped of music becomes a weird, zen-like experience. I'd wholeheartedly advise that you work your way through the whole batch, but this is our favourite by a street.

Go boys, go!


Aww nuts, SVT clearly don't have a sense of humour and the videos have now been taken down. What a shame, I was looking forward to seeing how that developed!

  1. This surprised me. They actually sound a lot better than I was imagining. They're not great singers, but they can deliver a good performance.

    I was disappointed (but not entirely surprised) to hear Ace Wilder use a backing singer to duplicate her vocal throughout. Robin B sounded great, though.
