Switzerland

Switzerland definitely gets the hope award. Not only is this song about hope, but they also need a lot of hope to win. They have the lowest number of youtube views which sucks completely and also the song itself is very boring. There is nothing unique in it that makes me want to keep it …

Turkey

Today commemorates the day of rememberance of the Armenian Genocide. Since Armenia decided to be xenophobic and chose not to participate this year, I am going to give Turkey the honor. I might not like that the government of Turkey consistently refutes the Armenian genocide, but that does not stop me from having Turkish friends. …

Youtube Roundup

A good indicator of which song the general public likes is by seeing which songs are watched the most often on youtube. Although this is not 100% accurate as it will only show the global count and not country by country like the voting system, you can kind of predict what will happen. If one …

Romania

Romania definitely wins the outfit change award! The number of outfits that Mandinga has are just amazing. I counted at least 8 outfits in her song! I love that Mandinga has all the time in the world to change outfits left and right. This song is so upbeat and happy you can’t help but smile …

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 …
