ICELAND: Svala – Paper (6/10)

I was shocked at Icelands non qualification last year. They have produced something good again this year but it is unfortunate Iceland are in the very competitive first semi final and I think they would have stood more chance of qualification if they were in the second semi final. I also question the live performance… Continue reading ICELAND: Svala – Paper (6/10)

LITHUANIA: Fusedmarc – Rain of Revolution (1/10)

This is such a typical Lithuanian style entry (poor sounding English and a poorly composed song). I have not been a fan of Lithuania in Eurovision. Last years entry was definitely a grower on me and I actually was fairly impressed last year. Rain of Revolution has probably got to be the weakest entry this… Continue reading LITHUANIA: Fusedmarc – Rain of Revolution (1/10)

SAN MARINO: Valentina Monetta and Jimmie Wilson – Spirit of the Night (2.5/10)

As if Valentina is back !!!! Seriously !!!!!!!!! Who makes these decisions !?!?!?! The song’s don’t even get any better, seriously San Marino come on!! Surely you have the potential to send something worthy!!! I do like the first 10 seconds when there is just an instrumental and no singing but then it just turns… Continue reading SAN MARINO: Valentina Monetta and Jimmie Wilson – Spirit of the Night (2.5/10)

NORWAY: JOWST – Grab The Moment (4/10)

Norway have been a bit poor recently in Eurovision and I don’t think this year is much of an improvement either. The stage performance is static and lacklustre. This will need to be vastly improved for the Eurovision stage. The chorus is uplifting and catchy. This slightly reminds of of Australia’s entry in 2015 but… Continue reading NORWAY: JOWST – Grab The Moment (4/10)

ARMENIA: Artsvik – Fly With Me (7/10)

Wow this is different and I can’t figure out if I like it or not but it is quite addictive. This is very Armenian like. This reminds me of the Azerbaijan entry in 2014 especially at the start. What I like about this song is that it builds and builds and builds and keeps you… Continue reading ARMENIA: Artsvik – Fly With Me (7/10)

CZECH REPUBLIC: Martina Barta – My Turn (2/10)

I absolutely loved the brilliant “I Stand” last year. Gabriela gave us a great performance, a great voice and great staging and I was so disappointed to see this placing so low. If Gabriela could not score highly then Martina has no chance at all! My Turn is uninspiring and boring to not sound too… Continue reading CZECH REPUBLIC: Martina Barta – My Turn (2/10)

FYR MACEDONIA: Jana – Dance Alone (6/10)

When you first hear this you do not expect this to come from FYR Macedonia, this sounds more like a song that a country like Germany or Belgium would send. The country failed to qualify the past two years and I really liked the 2015 entry. This year FYR Macedonia brings us a very fresh… Continue reading FYR MACEDONIA: Jana – Dance Alone (6/10)
