    "Blame It On The Disco" is easily the best song I have heard this year. It's better than I could have ever expected. I am literally speechless. I NEVER thought they could out-do "Stay The Night" but they totally have! [2]

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate how AWESOME "Blame It On The Disco" is? It's the Alcazar we all love but with something extra. And the show they put on this evening in Mello in Ö-vik... I'm speechless, this is Alcazar at its best (the ABBA-inspired outfits, the fireworks and that huge disco ball!!!). I believe (also counting in all the articles in Sweden) they're being the favourite to go to ESC in Copenhagen this year. And man, they seriously deserve after all those years plus they totally killed it with Blame It On The Disco. [2]

    "Blame It on the Disco" is the best song of Alcazar's career. It's essentially "Stay The Night" on acid and probably the most infectious song I think i've ever heard. They have really outdone themselves this time. It's got to be their year finally to represent Sweden. Everything about the song and performance was joyous and so slick. Totally different to everything else I listen to but I love them dearly. Disco is alive again thanks to Alcazar. [2]

    No thanks, it would be a disgrace to send this recycled song to Copenhagen. Don't worry, Sweden will not vote Alcazar to Eurovision. The Swedes are all too obsessed over that boring diva Sanna Nielsen. Personally I didn't want either "Undo" or "Blame It on the Disco" to be qualified to the final in Friends Arena, but unfortunately Swedish televoters don't have good taste in music (Yes, I voted on my favorites which is already in final).
