Oh, national finals. Often they strike gold so valuable that not even the greatest song competition on Earth could afford their grace. But more often they manage to find the darkest bottoms in the deepest of pop oceans, places not even Spongebob, natural science or Rebecca Black have managed to reach. The worst songs in the national finals would put all the replies in the ”Worst Performances By Major Artists” thread to shame and, well, it would be a shame if they were completely forgotten. (And don't even bring up Patti because that's not what I'm talking about here.) In fact, I got the idea for the thread after this was randomly posted in that very thread. So let's collect the atrocities. The natural disasters. The terror attacks of euro-pop. I'll begin this doomsday thread with the Melodifestivalen entry that made Sweden look worse than San Marino: Addis Black Widow were quite big in Sweden when I was a kid (1995-2001), having several hits and mostly to critical acclaim. They were 'cool', sought after by our biggest international indie acts and were always invited to late night shows hosted by 'cool' Stockholm media personalities. But after this comeback performance, SVT decided to change the whole process in choosing 'known' artists to make sure they could sing live. They also decided to allow pre-recorded back-up vocals a few years later. Christer Björkman always refers to this performance as his biggest fail.
