Sweden – “You” by Robin Stjernberg
It’s a nice pop tune, but I guess Sweden doesn’t really want to win two years in a row.
Spain – “Contigo Hasta El Final (With You All The Way)” by ESDM
At first it seems like Spain has gone traditional. I just wonder if the audience will still be with them by the time the song really kicks in.
Italy – “L’Essenziale” by Marco Mengoni
Wow, that’s some hair.
Germany – “Glorious” by Cascada
Germany is usually a strong competitor, despite most of Europe still hating them for that World War II business, and this year is no exception. It’s a great dance tune that would have won if it were from the Ukraine, but not Germany.
France – “L’enfer Et Moi (Hell and Me)” by Amandine Bourgeois
This is a great song, and per usual, it’s in French, but it’s much better than most years’ entries. It seems the French are in it to win it this year. I can’t wait to see what this looks like on stage. That will make or break it.
Along with the UK entry, “Believe in Me” by 1980s songstress Bonnie Tyler, the above finalists join Semi-Final winners Lithuania, Moldova, Finland, Belgium, Estonia, Belarus, Malta, Russia, Armenia, The Netherlands, Romania, Hungary, Denmark, Iceland, Azerbaijan, Greece, Ukraine, Norway, Georgia, and Ireland in the Grand Final tomorrow afternoon. Those of you in the States can watch it live here.
It’s that time of year again – Eurovision is coming. The United Kingdom just announced that Bonnie Tyler, of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” will represent them at Eurovision this year.
The song is “Believe in Me,” and it’s not bad. Hopefully it will be good for more than two points this year.
