Sweden 2015 - Daniel Gildenlöw - Pappa
Now here's the correct treatment for a delicate song. Minimal lighting, fragile voice and a predominantly static camera that uses just three shots over the whole three minutes.
In the middle of all the glorious crash bang of the MelFest this was an absolute breath of fresh air.
You may remember Daniel from his jaw-dropping appearance at MF with his band Pain of Salvation around five years ago, and while that didn't have the pure messianic power of his previous attempt, this still stopped me in my tracks and demanded that I pay full attention to the tellybox for three minute. Such a shame it didn't make it through.
