The Final Six Entries from the Second Eurovision Semi-Final

Turkey: “Love Me Back” by Can Bonomo

Traditional and groovey. This one is growing on me. The video helps a lot.

Estonia: “Kuula” by Ott Lepland

Slovakia: “Don’t Close Your Eyes” by Max Jason Mai

The token rocker this year hoping for a rerun of 2006 Lordi win. I like the song, very Linkin Park and Papa Roach, but the chorus is a bit too Europe for me.

Norway: “Stay” by Toolji

This is another early favorite for me. It’s got everything a Eurovision song should have. This is a surefire entry for the Finals, and maybe the win.

Bosnia & Herzegovina: “Korake Ti Znam” by Maya Sar

Lithuania: “Love Is Blind” by Donny Montell

The blindfold is a bit much, and the disco transformation scared me more than a Rick-roll.

The Second Semi-Final takes place on May 24th in Baku.

Eurovision 2009: Semi-Final 1 – Results

The voting is over and the results are in. While waiting we got to see a mad Russian stage extravaganza featuring a military band and a bad lipsync performance from T.A.T.U. – well, I suppose it could have been worse.

Here are the results:

Turkey, Sweden, Israel, Portugal, Malta, Finland, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Romania, Armenia and Iceland.

I got a few right…

Plagiarism at Eurovision 2009?

Here is (currently) Bosnia-Herzegovina’s entry for Eurovision this year, “Bistra Voda” by U2-influenced Bosnian rock band Regina:

The matter is currently under investigation. Is there something fishy here? You decide.
