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)

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)

AZERBAIJAN: Dihaj – Skeleton (6.5/10)

Once again Azerbaijan brings us a more than any old mediocre song. Skeleton is fresh and unique, the chorus build nicely. Dihaj herself brings her own style to the competition. However, there is something missing and I fear this will lose some of its oomph in the live performance. This should be a qualifier but… Continue reading AZERBAIJAN: Dihaj – Skeleton (6.5/10)

BELGIUM: Blanche – City Lights (7.5/10)

Looks like all the good songs for this year have been revealed later on in the national selection process. Well done to Belgium for bringing us this fresh, contemporary sound to Eurovision. It’s dark and I love the electric feel. I would say Belgium are one of the contenders this year. This is a sure… Continue reading BELGIUM: Blanche – City Lights (7.5/10)
