Prepares yourselves people.
The first semi final for the Eurovision will be on Tuesday 22nd May.
Here are the entries (in order) for the first semi final. Underneath the video I have said a little about each one. In bold are the ones I hope to qualify.
Montengro: 3/10 – Very Balkan. A little too odd for my liking.
Iceland: 9/10 – Great duet. Jonsi is back after performing for Iceland a couple of years ago.
Greece: 6/10 – Back with more of the same. It’s like Eurovision-colour-by-numbers.
Latvia: 7/10 – Awful song, but it’s catchy and she has something very endearing about her. It sticks in your head FORVER!
Albania: 1/10 – I HATE this. Ouch! But it seems to be popular with lots of fans and might do well in Baku.
Romania: 8/10 – Great party song. Romania will do well with this.
Switzerland: 7/10 – Rocky number from the Swiss. Shame that the vocals are a bit odd (strong accent).
Belgium: 2/10 – DULL as dishwater!
Finland: 6.5./10 – Singing in Swedish…. Topical. This number bounces along, but doesn’t take me anywhere.
Israel: 6/10 – Odd doesn’t start to explain this. It sounds like it comes straight from Eurovision 1975.
San Marino: 5/10 – This deranged singer ruins every concept of Facebook. She turns it into some stalking seedy site. So wrong.
Cyprus: 9/10 – I L-L-Love it……
Denmark: 8/10 – Again, Denmark hit it big. They’ll do well with this, although I have preferred their previous two entries much more.
Russia: 10/10 – THE ONE TO BEAT! I think these grannies are gonna win it BIG!
Hungary: 4/10 – 80s retro. Not my cup of my tea.
Austria: 5/10 – Woki mit deim popo ‘Wiggle those bums” – no words to explain it.
Moldova: 6.5/10 – Hot guy sings a swinging song.
Ireland: 10/10 – JEDWARD! I hated their song last year but LOVE them this time around.
