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.
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.
