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.
