  • So very sorry… we can and do suck at being welcoming. Unfortunately we have a tendency to forget or know how “this nation of immigrants” was created. HECK! We forget that my state California belonged to Mexico at one point. So, for what it’s worth, I apologize for what may have been an unpleasant stay and/or visit. Also (unfortunately) have no power and live an hour north of LA… but hope your next SoCal trip is better. 🖖🏼 you’re awesome, and an amazing singer!

  • Molly's performance in the night of the Oscars was the prove that the magic of the speorg note wasn't just a lack of oxigen! When Aurora Borealis decides to appear to celebrate a magical song and the emotions it brings to hearts all over the world, it is because MAGIC IS REAL!

  • Molly sing JAJA DING DONG!!! Jokes aside, helt sjukt, vad är det som händer... However you put it, its not lack of oxygen ;) It is magical and this song, your performance is magic, it has captivated the whole world. In days of darkness during this pandemic, this is a whole other wonder that we all need. If anyone reading this, check around HUworld, there are so many versions from people around the world, even found a Korean version were they actually sing it in English and Icelandic ... Fan vad jag älskar att se hur saker o ting faller på plats när man minst anar det. Molly and the Team, go go go!!! //KS Solna

  • Since it didn't get the win, it would be only fair for the Song Contest to have a segment dedicated to the movie, with a performance of Husavik, and then - of course - Will Ferrell leading the crowd in a rousing rendition of "Ja Ja Ding Dong".

    cvrnivorecvrnivore19 napja
    • I hope not, I really hope she will get together with some amazing songwriters and come back to Melfest and win! But one must always remember, winning Melfest is really, really hard. Among those who has lost in Melfest are even Eurovision winners like Loreen, Helena Paparizo, Katrina (from Katrina and the Waves), Måns Zelmerlöw, Elisabeth Andreasson (from Bobbysocks), Charlotte Perelli, and ABBA, they have all lost one time or more in Melfest.
