France

The award for the weirdest music video goes to France! The tune to the song is a catchy tune and is really nice in the beginning. It seems like it’s going to be an amazing song, but then after the beginning minute or so I found myself getting really bored of it. I wanted something …

F.Y.R. Macedonia

F.Y.R. Macedonia brings us Kaliopi this year with a heart wrenching breakup song. And if you listened to the whole song you’ll understand why F.Y.R. Macedonia gets the screaming award. I don’t know where that scream came from, but it didn’t fit in to well with the rest of the song. The song itself was …

Slovenia

Slovenia this year seems to be going for the crazy hat theme. I still don’t know what those hats are supposed to be. They look like a solar system being formed or something. For these crazy hats Slovenia wins the crazy hat award. If you were to take away the hats you would begin to …

Slovakia

Slovakia this year lines us up with Max Jason Mai who sings us a powerful rock song. Max himself looks like a stereotypical Rockstar winning him the rockstar award for this competition. Although I really like the beat and feel of the song I doubt it will go very far. Rock songs don’t generally go …

Croatia

This year Croatia sends us the powerful singer Nina Badrić. We’ll start off by handing Nina the naked man award! When watching the video associated with this song you will quickly notice that most of the song has half naked men randomly falling with nothing by a bed sheet around their groins. Oh how I …

Serbia

Today’s award is given to Mr. Joksimović and shall be known as the fake award. Watch how Željko smirks the whole time pleading with the audience, “come back home with me.” He seems to be a player of sorts and has an aura that he can get any woman in the room. If this song …

Bulgaria

Bulgaria seems to be pushing against racism this year with their song ‘Love Unlimited’. For a song that talks about loving no matter the race Bulgaria wins the equality award! The song preaches not having any boundaries when it comes to love which is very amazing. Although she doesn’t reference same-sex love as well she …

Bosnia & Herzegovina

And the shortest song lyrics award goes to… Bosnia & Herzegovina! B&H tries to use each word sparingly and with a ton of emotion. No wonder they chose an amazing singer like Maya to sing this song. Her voice is very powerful and brings the necessary emotion to the song. Although I don’t personally feel …

Belarus

Belarus this year gets the motorcycle gang award. The band looks like they just got out of a motorcycle bar and decided to just randomly start singing. And just like any random group of bikers singing, they don’t perform really well. The don’t bring me anything to make me smile or anything. I quickly got …
