Eurovision 2013 – The Last Five of the First Semi-Final

Montenegro – “Igranka” by Who See


If I’m being honest, I love the video but only like the song. It does have more happening both musically and visually than many of the other contenders. However I think it might be like one of my previous favorites, Svetlana Loboda, just way too much going on at once. Either way, I dig this one.

Russia – “What If” by Dina Garipova


One of the better entries, but not one of my favorites, this one has an excellent chance of finishing high, if not winning. Ballads that are songs of hope are always favorites in this competition.

Serbia – “Ljubav Je Svuda” by Moje 3


Another one of my favorites, and not just because of the beautiful women singing. Dance numbers that are a little off, and outlandish outfits are Eurovision tradition. Also, the tune is catchy and gets in your head.

Slovenia – “Straight Into Love” by Hannah Mancini


I’m not fond of her voice, or the way the music starts and stops, but the dance track could easily be a 1990s Cher club hit.

Ulkraine – “Gravity” by Zlata Ognevich


LIke Montenegro, I like the video more than the song. It’s kind of quirky, and grows on me each time I hear it, but I doubt it will get to the finals. Time will tell.

The first Semi-Final for Eurovision 2013 will be held in Malmo, Sweden on the 14th of May.

The Next Six Entries from the Second Eurovision Semi-Final

Ukraine: “Be My Guest” by Gaitana

I’m digging the 1990s power dance diva thing, but how did she get the X-Men as background dancers?

Bulgaria: “Love Unlimited” by Sofi Marinova

More disco, but a decent little dance tune. I like the music video portion, but the stage show is boring. I have to wonder what the real performance will look like.

Slovenia: “Verjamem” by Eva Boto

Another power ballad reminiscent of Serbia’s entry in 2007, boring, but it could win.

Croatia: “Nebo” by Nana Badric

Like Bulgaria, great video, but what will it look like on stage?

Sweden: “Euphoria” by Loreen

Slow build, powerful voice, but turns frequently into house music. Could be a contender.

Georgia: “I’m a Joker” by Anri Jokhadze

Guilty pleasure here, it is sooo Eurovision. Where else in the world could you rhyme ‘joker’ with ‘rocker’ and do your worst Taco imitation at the same time? I love it.

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

First Six from the Second Eurovision Semi-Finals

Serbia: “Nije Ljubav Stvar” by Željko Joksimović

F.Y.R. Macedonia: “Crno I Belo” by Kaliopi

Zzzzzzzzzzzz…

The Netherlands: “You and Me” by Joan Franka

I’m really not sure what American Indian feather headdress symbolizes in The Netherlands, but Joan Franka is certainly a frontrunner in my mind.

Malta: “This Is the Night” by Kurt Calleja

This kinda reminds me of bad 1990s disco, and I kept expecting to get Rick-rolled. It’s catchy though, and very Eurovision.

Belarus: “We Are the Heroes” by Litesound

Ditto. Pretty too, just not sure about the Power Rangers costumes.

Portugal: “Vida Minha” by Filipa Sousa

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