Latvia

And the ego award goes to Latvia! This song is all about this song. Oddly enough the song is actually kind of beautiful. I wonder if Paul McCartney will ever want to work with her. I guess only if she actually wrote this song, oh wait, but she didn’t. Also, what is up with the …

Israel

This years circus award goes to Israel. I personally love my circus songs. (Remember Spain’s Algo Pequinito from 2010?) I like the song as it’s fun loving and really exciting, but the beat is not the best for eurovision and also as most countries begin to notice the way Israel handles Palestinians the politics of …

Hungary

Today we are celebrating the breakup award. I am broken up with Hungary. I dont really like their song very much, but because of Eurovision politics I assume they will do ok for the semi-finals and might place near the bottom for finals like they did last year when they finished 22nd. We’ll see how …

Russia

If you have not heard this song you are missing out! Cutest award definitely goes to Russia this year. 6 ‘babushkas’ sing their hearts out trying to get everyone up and pumped to party. Although I personally think the fire in the background is the best part. They might not have the best voices, but …

Moldova

Where did this come from Moldova?! I love the beat and feel to this song. It’s so happy and exciting. It might not be europop, but it’s pretty slick. This type of song usually doesn’t go over very well against the catchy tune of a lot of the other songs. On another note, the boy …

Ireland

Gayest Entry award goes to Ireland for sending jedward for the 2nd year running. I guess their 8th place performance last year are giving the Irish a hope they might do better with a little revamp. Normally a 2nd attempt usually doesn’t work out very well, but this one might just work. The song is …

Greece

Greece wins the hot award! The boys were cute and those shoes girl! I loved them =) The music sounds like a good chunk of previous entries from Greece. They usually do very well, so I expect them to show up at least in the finals. And depending on the hottness of the guys, Eleftheria …

Cyprus

Cyprus gives us a lot of love with “La La Love”! They also get the honor of having ‘the performer that looks like Anne Hathaway’ award. It also reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, the one that Tim Burton made. I think this entry woun’t do to good mainly because it has such stronger competition. …

Albania

Today we celebrate the saddest song of the competition. Albania sends us Rona Nishliu who has a very nice voice. She has a very emotional voice that reminds me of Adele, but lacking the belting of emotion that Adele is so fond of. I really like Rona’s song and in the tough times happening in …

San Marino

The company I work for just released our new website (bright.com) and since it’s a social way of doing job search I decided to talk about San Marino’s entry today. It’s all about the social network baby! Personally I think the song is kinda cute. It definitely does not compete very well in the 1st …
