UK ar first? ouch! I expect them to be last on the final voting then.

This year it's obvious Loreen is gonna win. And it will be such an undeserved victory. The song is nice for clubbing, but the only good part is the catchy "u-u-u-up". The rest of the song is slow, boring and quite average. And her performance is weird and boring too.

If she doesn't win, then I guess Russia will, since everyone's talking abouut the 6 grandmas and the song is really catchy. Would also be undeserved, because if the same song had been sung by 3 young ladies, they wouldn't even be on the final.


This year I really like Cyprus entry. Love the song and I've been playing it nonstop for the past 3 days. I also like Denmark's song and, of course, I love the spanish song. At first I thought we had chances because it's a big epic ballad, but then I saw most of the acts this year are ballads, so...

Spain won today in the Press Center Voting, so I hope we finally can get a decent Top5 place after so many years being in the last positions.

:p

As songs go, it's streaks ahead of everything else in this competition, for me. Everything else is quite typical, forgettable Eurovision fodder imo. Whereas Loreen's is a song that could be a chart smash anywhere in the world. Even the UK, who generally don't give a damn about Eurovision songs (including our own entries) is liking Euphoria! It's currently in our iTunes Top 100 after just semi-final exposure (and semi-finals aren't seen in big numbers here - this could be huge after the final, which is seen by at least ten times as many people, here).

P.S. I guess her performance style is channeling Kate Bush. I think the staging & lighting makes her stand out against the majority of the other countries - it really focuses on Loreen, rather than on a massive stage, which is quite a stark contrast. It's quite atmospheric.

*Loreen stan, over and out* :$

What a shame that Joan Franka sounded so awful last night. Nerves got the best of her (I really like the song still...).
The big 5 have quite some amazing songs this year, I'm rooting for Sweden, Italy and France.

I'm not a big Eurovision fan, I enjoy cheesy-pop as much as the next person (I do like Geri after all), but this is a bit too much for me. I saw a bit of the semi-finals yesterday and was so embarassed for the contestants...
Loreen, however, is actually quite nice. Great voice and the performance is different from the typical Eurovision stuff. Like Jay said, very atomospheric. I probably won't be paying much attention to the finals but, compared to the little I saw of the other contestants yesterday, she definitely deserves to win ;)

I think they should include performances of the Big Five next year on the semi finals. I know they go straight to the final and it's a good thing (for them), but fact is that whoever that follows the festival, will get to see all of the contestants during the semi finals and then will have a clear favourite on the final, not paying that much attention to the rest.

If the Big Five countries (plus the winning country) performed their songs at the end of the semi finals (3 performances on each), by the time the final comes everyone will have seen ALL the performances and have a proper vote to the one they like the most. It's not fair that those 6 countries are left out of the "hype" by not performing on the semi finals too.

But they already go to the final without having to compete, putting them in the semi-finals just to get more exposure would only be more unfair to the other contestants if you ask me.

This year's song selections are pretty poor. Disappointed. Watch most of the semi-finals' performances.
Only like the following:

+ Tooji - Stay (Norway) -- A poorer version of Eric Saade's "Popular"
+ Donny Montell - Love Is Blind (Lithuania) -- His voice is amazing, although he has an accent when he sings. His voice reminds me of Kavana, but only better.
+ Kurt Calleja - This Is The Night (Malta) -- A pretty good song and good vocals.
+ Compact Disco - Sound Of Our Hearts (Hungary) -- Thought it is a really good song. Sounds like a proper song you will get from the mainstream rock artists.
+ Eleftheria Eleftheriou - Aphrodisiac (Greece) -- A poorer version of Kalomira's "Secret Combination".

From the other 6 finalists (the Big 5 + Winner of Last Year's ESC), I don't believe I will like them at all.

I was really disappointed that Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria didn't get through on thursday! Some of the singing that got through was Horrible! And Austria was great 2, something fun and different.

Glad to see some love for Loreen (I'm ignoring IER's ridiculous comments.) She's absolutely brilliant and in a class of its own. Her album is due in September, watch the videos below if you want to see more... :love:

I don't ge the hype of Loreen. She is a great singer no doubt about it, but her weird spasm dance turns me off. And she looks dirty, you know, like unkempt dirty. I hope she doesn't win. But from the looks like it, there ain't much competition coz this yr's entries are really bad.

I see this point, I'm annoyed over her hair looking very electric with flyaways. But apart from being very talented, I also think it's annoying how she is so confident over winning this and how everyone plays their part to make sure it's making headlines even before it's official. Its annoying. So I hope it doesn't win in the end just because there would be something interesting going on this year.

Some of Loreen's fans are worse than Monsters and Beliebers together.

Don't forget though, his opinion is perfect because he's Swedish and they've never been wrong.

@artziboi Loreen has NEVER expressed anything about that she will win. You'll find her to be very humble apart from many others.

Won't even comment on Stich's silly comment.
