More Eurovision 2013

The First Semi-Final was held tonight in Malmo, Sweden, and yielded the following Finalists: Moldova, Lithuania, Ireland, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, The Netherlands, Russia, Denmark, and Belgium.

Now, here are the last of the Second Semi-Finalists:

Israel – “Rak Bishvilo” by Moran Mazor


Another ballad? Really?

Latvia – “Here We Go” by PeR


Kind of a happy 1990s vibe here. I like when it finally kicks in.

Malta – “Tomorrow” by Gianluca


This could be a dark horse. It’s happy, catchy, and memorable, and most importantly in a contest that includes so many different cultures – inoffensive. I think we’ll see this one in the Finals.

Romania – “It’s My Life” by Cezar


This guy’s voice, wow. A novelty, and a possible Finalist.

San Marino – “Crisalide (Vola)” by Valentina Monetta


One wonders two things, how will it translate to the stage, and will the audience still be awake when it finally kicks in?

Switzerland – “You and Me” by Takasa


This is another favorite, I hope it’s a Finalist as well.

The second Semi-Final will take place on Thursday, the 16th of May.

Eurovision 2012 Is Coming

Yes, it’s that time of year again, time for the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Today, I’m giving you a peek at the first four entries from the first semi-final on May 22, 2012.

Competing for Montenegro: “Euro Neuro” by Rambo Amadeus

For Iceland: “Never Forget” by Greta Salome & Jonsi

Greece: “Aphrodisiac” by Eleftheria Eleftheriou

And Latvia: “Beautiful Song” by Anmany

Greece is always a fierce competitor in Eurovision, and it looks like this year is no exception. Latvia’s song is growing on me, mostly because it’s about Eurovision. There are many more to come. We’ll see what happens.
