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.
