Eurovision 2013 – More from the First Semi-Final

Denmark – “Only Teardrops” by Emmelie de Forest


Hmmm… someone needs a new conditioner. Seriously, this one is a contender. Catchy tune, part ballad, lotsa drums, traditional flute, and a beautiful woman, and not too outrageous – if there was a formula for Eurovision, this would be it.

Estonia – “Et Uus Saaks Alguse” by Birgit


Estonia is usually a fierce competitor, but this year we just get a ballad.

Ireland – “Only Love Survives” by Ryan Dolan


No Jedward or Dustin the Turkey this year, Ireland gets a bit more serious about the competition with this Ryan Dolan entry that continues to grow on me every time I hear it.

Lithuania – “Something” by Andrius Pojavis


I’m not sure which is more bizarre, the background dancers, or the Abraham Lincoln drag… craziness in the Eurovision tradition, love it.

Moldova – “O Mie” by Aliona Moon


Wow, that is some outfit, and a lot of hairspray… pretty song though.

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.

Now This Is More Like It

In my opinion, what’s been missing so far in this year’s crop of Eurovision entries has been that bizarre campy quality. Lithuania more than makes up for it with “East European Funk” by InCulto. Best I’ve heard so far too.
