    Heiligsarmee is negotiating with EBU and proposed changing the name and uniforms.

    Krista Siegfrid's "Marry Me" and Arion's "Lost" have qualified to the Finnish finals from the second semi.

    Rather monotonous, though. Lacking in vocal range as well.

    Comedienne Petra Mede will host Eurovision. Apparently she is awesome.

    I really wanted Sarah Dawn Finer (who is also awesome) but apparently she will be on tour at the time.

    Yay, more voids! Her performance last year was just awesome. :D

    "Facebook Uh Oh Oh" is just a legendary masterpiece.

    This year, her song is caled "Crisalide" and they will soon announce when it's going to be unveiled. It was also written by Ralph Siegel so hopefully it'll be similarly lamazing.

    AHHHH Valentina Monetta! And same songwriter? SOOOO excited! My sister and go "Facebook, uh oh oh..." every time someone says Facebook. Yeah, don't say "Facebook" in my presence. :D

    Sarah Dawn Finer would have been good. Especially if Azerbaijan qualified to the Finals. :)

    Macedonian song will be called "Obsesija" (Obsession) and will be performed in Macedonian. It's written by Esma's son.

    Semi-finals in Malta and Norway tonight. :)

    I hope that Chris Grech "Never Walk Away" wins the Maltese final.

    Claudia Faniello will try to represent Malta for the 9th time with "When It's Time". She probably will fail again. :p

    All Maltese songs are online, vast majority are terrible obviously.

    These are totally going to happen while I'm sitting in class. Or sleeping.

    How's the Norwegian final looking, Ziggy?

    Norway is great in that the songs are really diverse. In the third semi on Saturday there'll be a goth/industrial band, teenage X-Factor survivor, some older established artists and a rapper duo. :D

    I am really worried that "operatic metal" song that won Semi 2 is going to win the whole thing. :/

    And sorry, I got confused, it's not tonight. :p

    Friday evening is Maltese semi-final and it will be broadcast on eurovision.tv so everyone can watch it. :)

    Saturday evening will be very busy as it will feature:
    - Hungarian Heat 1
    - Icelandic Final
    - Maltese Final
    - Norwegian Semi-Final 3
    - Swedish Semi-Final 1

    Montenegrin TV informed us all that the hip hop duo Who See will be joined on stage by one of their most popular pop singers Nina Žižić as well as a second MYSTERY singer to be revealed. Oh, the tension is killing me! :drama:

    Russia - a country known for not really bothering with that troublesome democracy business - shall choose its act internally. Apparently all the entries are talent show rejects, no established artists submitted songs. So we'll probably get some dire The Voice winner.

    Cyprus has chosen Despina Olympiou. Song TBA. But it will be in Greek.

    Bulgaria will chose the performer internally. The performer will then submit 5 songs, same jury will choose 3 best and then they'll be performed in the national final with the combination of jury and public votes choosing the best song. Songs are supposed to be composed and produced entirely by Bulgarian nationals.

    American singer Hannah Mancini will represent Slovenia. She's the kind of artist who has had a successful career in the music industry for a while now recording vocals, working with other musicians, but never in the spotlight. Now it's heeeer time, it's heeer time, heeer moment, etc.

    Some acts made it through to the Finnish final yesterday but it doesn't matter because Mikael Saari is going to win the whole thing anyway and then go on to either win Eurovision or place top 5 at the very least.

    One minute long rehearsal clips for the tomorrow's first Melodifestivalen Heat are now up on the official website for the event. All the songs are terrible and David Lindgren - with another sharply choreographed routine - should have no problems winning comfortably, I think. He looks so amusing. Handsome but in a nerdy way, not a popstar way. He looks like he's just been dragged out of an office cubicle. :p

    Last night was incredibly busy as far as Eurovision song selection goes! Here's a re-cap:

    Hungary - First Quarterfinal

    The jury and the public each chose 3 songs (out of 10 taking part, so 4 acts went home) to go through to the semi-final. No idea whether there will be two semi-finals with 12 acts each or one with 24 but my guess is the former. We will see. All the songs were in Hungarian but I don't know whether it was a requirement or the artists' choice.

    The jury has chosen:

    48 points Szilvia Agárdi & Dénes Pál "Szíveddel láss" (zzzzzzz...)
    47 points Ildikó Keresztes "Nem akarok többé játszani" (zzzzzzz...)
    45 points Gergő Rácz "Csak állj Melom" (Cool vibe, I like it!)

    The public has chosen:

    43 points Gergő Baricz "Húz" (Cool, laid-back vibe again. Nice.)
    41 points Tibor Gyurcsík "Örök harc" (Wow. This is awesome! Depeche Mode/Hurts vibe and he's really hot! Definitely my favourite of the six!) :respec:
    35 points (placed last :p) Tamás Palcsó "Ezt látnod kell" (Cheesy shit.)

    Looking at those scores, the juries are pushing the dullest, safest crap, as is usually the case. :yawn:

    Iceland Has Chosen!

    6 songs qualified from the semis + 1 wildcard making it a weird and uneven :)drama:) number of 7 in the final.

    A combination of jury and public votes chose the top two songs which then competed head to head and by that point only the public vote counted. The winner is:

    Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson "Ég á líf" :yawn:

    There is no way this bland, boring piece of crap entry will qualify to the final. Great choice Iceland...

    And this is the song that came second:
    Unnur Eggertsdóttir - Ég syng!

    It is also crap. But it's very catchy and at least it doesn't instantly put you to sleep. It should have won! OH WELL.

    Malta Has Chosen!

    And the result is a big surprise. I was betting for Chris Grech. Pasty-faced Kevin Borg was the favourite to win. It looked like it was going to be between the two of them. Kevin won the public vote, Grech gave a very good performance (and came 3rd in the public vote) but the jury decided to pick a mediocre, happy-clappy, piece of crap song which sounds like a tramp strumming at a ukulele... GOOD GOING MALTA! *sighs*

    Behold, the Maltese entry:
    Gianluca Bezzina "Tomorrow" *cries*

    Poor Claudia Faniello was 7th, entering Fumie Suguri territory now. :p

    P.S. eurovision.tv published a prepared article, announcing the wrong winner, by mistake :p

    Norway - Melodi Grand Prix: Third (and final) Semi-Final

    Gothminister didn't make it to the final! The three songs that qualified are:

    1. Adelén "Bombo" (Jesus Christ, this makes Haba Haba sound sophisticated... Sad, Jennifer Lopez wannabe crap.)
    2. Sirkus Eliassen "I Love You Te Quiero" (Terrible... but also AMAZING. :D And the staging is awesome. Got it on repeat all morning. :D) :cheer:
    3. Gaute Ormåsen "Awake" (zzzzzzz...)

    Bookmaker favourites who failed to go through:

    Gothminister "Utopia" (Well I am not surprised. Lordi was fun but this just looked like a bad joke and not in a good way. Plastic fun fair staging, please...)

    I really want the rabbits to win. Eliassen brothers are just awesome!

    But Norway actually has a sophisticated, serious-face, cutting edge electro song in the final (she won the second semi). It would be most fair if she won. Just no shitty "metal-opera" please!
    Margaret Berger "Feed You My Love" (Second Semi-Final Winner)

    Sweden - Melodifestivalen: Deltävling 1 (Karlskrona)

    Last night, the first Melodifestivalen Heat took place in Karlskrona. Remember, you can watch the whole of Melodifestivalen both live and on-demand for free and non-geoblocked through the SVT Play website.
    Video link to the first show.

    Jesus Christ, I can't believe what a total trainwreck it was...

    The female presenter wasn't that bad but Danny Saucedo was a nightmare. He was nervous and wooden, kept making mistakes and couldn't be reading the cue cards any more obviously. Yes, they are there to help you but you're really not supposed to be looking down reading directly from them 50% of the time...

    All the fail jibes directed at Danny (who failed twice to win) were delicious, though. :D

    So they had 8 performers perform. And then there was a technical failure when they did the voting recap.

    Then people were given ONE MINUTE (WTF?!!!) to vote and there was a hilariously inane interval act.

    Then they revealed the bottom three and gave people another ONE MINUTE to vote for the remaining 5 acts, 2 of whom would go to final, 2 to Andra Chansen and 1 home. And the poor three eliminated acts had to sit there holding back tears. Awwww.

    Then there was another interval act and then results.

    First they announced the first act to go to the final. That act performed the song again (whilst the rest of the votes wasn't revealed yet). Then they revealed other results and the other act going to the final performed. It felt really really weird.

    So yeah, total mess. Oh and did I mention that the songs were shit as well? :p

    Here's how it panned out (not giving all YT links because SVT will take them down straight away and you can watch it all on SVT Play):

    1-2 and straight to the final

    The two favourites lived up to the hype.

    David Lindgren "Skyline"

    Near perfect performance. Very strong vocals, really sharp dance routine. Lindgren looks like a nerd but has good stage presence. I am very surprised he wasn't out of breath at all given the amount of dancing. Song is kinda mediocre but uptempo and makes an impact. A very strong contender to win this year, I think.

    Yohio "Heartbreak Hotel"

    Wow. I am very surprised that a record label came up with this project. Think Tokio Hotel, on crack. Yohio "loves Japan" and is made to look like a yaoi character. Manga hair, angelic, androgynous face with big eyes, OTT make-up, colourful contact lenses, the whole shebang (click here if you dare). And wait for it... visual-kei music (bad 80s rock basically). It was terrible, totally form over substance but I can see how it can appeal to kids/teenagers who think their mum is being mean to them...

    They didn't give the placements but my guess is David 1st and Yohio 2nd.

    3-4 and through to Andra Chansen

    Cookies N' Beans "Burning Flags"

    Ok so a country group from Sweden, who released an album called "Trailer Trash Soul"... Ok... One of them even looks like a fat Kelly Clarkson. And one pretended to play the guitar even though we know that the music is from playback and the song wasn't even written by them so why bother. Having said all that, they all have strong, quite original voices that blend well and it was a good performance.

    Eric Gadd "Vi kommer aldrig att förlora" (We'll Never Lose)

    Well he's a DILF alright. It was the typical schlager crap albeit slightly more sophisticated than most and well performed for sure.

    My guess is Cookies 3rd and Eric 4th.

    5. Mary N'diaye "Gosa" (Cuddle)

    Haba Haba number 2. A catchy song that could have done very well but the production was quite poor. And the staging was just a disaster. Terrible costumes, terrible background, really weak choreography. Her singing and stage presence weren't bad but it just all looked like a total mess. Wasted opportunity.

    6. Michael Feiner & Caisa "We're Still Kids"

    Wow he's such a babe! (proof)

    It was a typical dance track but the sax hook made it stand out and it could have done well. One problem, though. Caisa can't sing. Like at all. I am quite astounded than an artist like Feiner who is very established in the music industry would not be able to find a better singer. I mean you have scores of better singers in the early stages of The Voice and X-Factor. Heaps of them to choose from.

    7. Anna Järvinen "Porslin" (Porcelain)

    This had to be a joke? Her clothes + (lack of) stage presence screamed CRAZY CAT LADY. Song was incredibly bad as well. Bottom of the barrel schlager crap. Horrific.

    8. Jay-Jay Johanson "Paris"

    Name dropping on various places of interest in Paris was the idea for the song lyric. He looked like some kind of basement-dwelling nerd. It was an even bigger joke than "Porslin". Incredibad.

    He actually is signed with Universal Music Japan. He is doing Eurovision because the Swedish Eurovision boss Christer Björkman watched this interview on Skavlan (Norwegian/Swedish talkshow) and thought he would be perfect for Eurovision. He actually won the semi ahead of David.

    Margaret Berger's song really is awesome. It's like a poppier version of The Knife. Does what scandi-pop does best, mixing euphoric and melancholic. I'm digging it more and more.

    Did they give out the final results? I thought they didn't do that until the finals.

    And yeah, I thought he'd be really big in Japan. :)

    It's great, isn't it? Really edgy. :)

    Generally, when people start talking about how big in Japan they are it usually means they are not. :shuffle:

    Yeah I meant 'he could be' if marketed well. ;)

    Certainly more a chance of success there than in Europe or USA. His target audience here, doesn't really listen to songs like this.

    Norway - Melodi Grand Prix 2013 Finalists

    A professional jury employed by NRK has decided to give the wildcard to Lucky Lips so now we know the 10 finalists who will battle it out next weekend to become Norway's Eurovision entry.

    The winner will be determined by a combination of public and jury votes and top four acts will qualify into the "golden final" first before the final winner is announced.

    Here are all the songs and the order they will compete in:

    1. Vidar Busk "Paid My Way" (Steinkjer Semi-Final, 3rd Place)
    2. Fjellfolk "Ulvetuva" (Wolf Tuva) (Florø Semi-Final, 2nd Place)
    3. Adelén "Bombo" (Drum) (Larvik Semi-Final, 1st Place)
    4. Gromth feat. Emil Solli-Tangen "Alone" (Steinkjer Semi-Final, 1st Place)
    5. Gaute Ormåsen "Awake" (Larvik Semi-Final, 3rd Place)
    6. Lucky Lips "Sweet and Heavy" (Larvik Semi-Final, Outside the Top 3 - Wildcard)
    7. Datarock "The Underground" (Steinkjer Semi-Final, 2nd Place)
    8. Annsofi "I'm With You" (Florø Semi-Final, 3rd Place)
    9. Margaret Berger "I Feed You My Love" (Florø Semi-Final, 1st Place)
    10. Sirkus Eliassen "I Love You Te Quiero" (Larvik Semi-Final, 2nd Place)

    Which ones are your favourites?

    Vidar Busk... Jesus Christ. It looks and sounds like some kind of dire Elvis tribute act from a dive in the middle of nowhere in the US. :scream:
    Fjellfolk (Mountain People) are another act that you could expect to see in a bar somewhere...
    Adelén's song is really cheap and tacky and her live vocals were terrible.
    Younger Solli-Tangen can sing but everything else is just noise. I really hope "Alone" doesn't win. :/
    Gaute Ormåsen - mediocre.
    Lucky Lips - another dive bar performance
    "The Underground" is a fun, funky song and the backing singers are good but it's not very original and the lead singer really can't sing.
    Annsofi, a young X-Factor survivor, is performing a song written by Alexander Rybak. A kind of song we've heard a million times before. :yawn:
    Margaret Berger has a great voice and the song is fantastic. Edgy, sophisticated electro. And that white fitted dress is just beautiful.
    Sirkus Eliassen have a cheesy fun track and are simply incredible performers. 10 PE without a doubt.

    TLDR: Margaret Berger is amazing and has the best song. Sirkus Eliassen have the best show. Datarock is decent enough for 3rd place. Everybody else is terrible. :p

    I can't believe that out of all the acts, the jury decided to give the wild card to Lucky Lips. I would have gone with this fun dance track:
    Doc M.C. feat. Mimi Blix "Catch Me'

    Spain - The Song for El sueño de Morfeo

    The band has been chosen internally. They presented 5 songs to the Spanish TV and they chose chose two. Third song will be chosen by the public voting online between two other songs.

    The band will perform 3 songs in the final and the Eurovision entry will be chosen 50/50 by jury and the public.

    Here's one of the band's bigger hits: Lo mejor esta por llegar.

    Feel-good summer song. If the winning entry will be similar to this, they should easily make the top 10.

    ---

    Apparently the first Melodifestivalen heat was an even bigger mess.

    Before David Lindgren took to the stage (he was the first to perform), the counter showing how many seconds are left to the start of his performance was broken and he couldn't hear himself in the headphone (no idea how it's called in English but musicians always have one headphone so they can hear whether they are singing in tune).

    Also another thing I forgot to mention was that during the moment of the biggest tension whilst Gina Dirawi was about to reveal whether Yohio or Mary made it to the final, Yohio's song became illuminated in pink way too early revealing the result. So much for the tension. :p

    SVT is known for always delivering to a very high standard so I am very surprised that so many things went wrong in one evening. :yikes:

    Also, SKANDAL! Underaged Yohio was photographed drinking alcohol at the after-party. What is the world coming to?!! :drama:

    Ziggy, I have an impression Adelen is going to win in Norway, cheap song and horrible live singing notwithstanding :p. Tooji or Stella Mwangi weren't that strong vocally, either :).

    Zig, the earpiece is called a monitor. And believe me, they are essential, the performers need to be able to hear themselves.

    Spain - The Song for El sueño de Morfeo

    The songs have been revealed.

    Qualified to the final:
    Contigo hasta el final (With You All The Way)
    Dame tu voz (Give Me Your Voice)

    The public are voting online between:
    Atrévete (Dare)
    Revolución (Revolution)

    Another really busy weekend ahead of us!

    Wednesday - The songs selected to perform in the Greek final are revealed.
    Thursday - The songs selected to perform in the Irish final are revealed.
    Friday - First Latvian semi-final.
    Saturday - BRACE YOURSELVES!
    Second Heat in Hungary
    Second Latvian Semi-Final
    Second Melodifestivalen Heat in Sweden
    Finnish Final
    Norwegian Final

    Come on! What am I supposed to watch? :drama:

    I can't split myself into five! :drama:

    Melodifestivalen you can watch online on SVT Play. Norwegian final you can watch online through NRK website. Same for Hungarian. No idea about the other two. But eurovision.tv will probably broadcast them all. :)

    Oh and we already know the titles of the four Greek songs who will battle it out in the final:

    Koza Mostra feat. Agathonas - Alcohol Is Free (the song is in Greek) :rofl:
    Aggeliki Iliadi - Chilies kai mia nichtes (One thousand and one nights, in Greek)
    Alex Leon feat. Georgina - Angel (in English)
    Thomai Apergi - One Last Kiss (in English)

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Both the song and her live vocals are just horrific. But yeah it fits very well with the hot mess that their last two songs were.

    The fact NRK has placed Berger and Sirkus Eliassen as the last two acts hopefully means they are politicking for them and that starting order should help with the public votes as well.

    I will be happy with either of those winning but please no Bombo. UGH. :/

    Thanks for educating me, Reuven. ^^

    Greek Songs Have Been Revealed

    Thomai Apergi "One Last Kiss" (decent singer and a professional but a rather forgettable retro track)
    Aggeliki Iliadi "Hilies Kai Mia Nychtes" (A thousand and one nights) (an ethnopop mid-tempo banger, I love it!)
    Alex Leon feat. Giorgina "Angel" (ethnoelectro snoozefest :yawn:)
    Koza Mostra & Agathonas Iakovidis "Alcohol Is Free" (village wedding band level...)

    I want Iliadi to win but Apergi will be ok as well. The two other songs are horrific. I bet "Alcohol Is Free" will win though. People love this kind of uptempo folksy shit, especially in Greece. :/

    Yes! Last year I was thinking the exact same thing. The lyrics could start with: "It is just a little block of text/ But you never know what's coming next" . . .

    :D

    the Irish songs are mediocre, to put it mildly. all artists seem to have a potential to sound awful live :p. I'd choose 'Kiss me there,' for the sake of a title :D.

    as for Greece - Aggeliki Iliadi!!! what a sultry performance! I really hope it will be chosen...

    Perhaps I have low expectations or am blindly patriotic, but based on the audio alone I would say that's the best collection of songs in an Irish final for a very, very long time. How they'll sound live is another story. :shuffle:

    My fave is "Only Love Survives" - it's all a bit of a tribute to Eric Saade/Danny Saucedo, but when going to Sweden. ;)

    Never underestimate the Irish love for a ballad though! :lol:

    That one is my least favorite. It sounds like 10 other typical pop songs mixed together. So unoriginal. But I've heard that it's the favorite to win. I wonder what it will sound like live.

    So far, this year's Eurovision entries are quite dull. I hope we'll at least get something crazy from Moldova.

    That would be my proudest accomplishment! Perhaps Jedward could perform "Rad Bromance," my homage/parody to Lady Gaga I wrote for karaoke purposes.

    "I want your tank top/ I want your Axe spray/ I want to squeeze your pecs/ Don't tell me it's gay . . ."

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for the detailed Eurovision updates.

    Yep.

    Given the level of your entries in recent years, that's not very hard though. :D

    Here are the 12 contenders for Germany's national final next Friday: http://www.eurovision.de/teilnehmer/index.html Oh, and I do love No. 2, Betty Dittrich, Malmö-born girl, living in Berlin for years, and I don't feel ashamed about it. I know, it's only giddy retro-trash, but quite catchy and charming. There's a tiny morbid twist in the (German) lyrics, it' all about (her) boys, what else?, and where they all have gone? Don't look for them in her cellar, you won't find anything?, because ... they've "gone"? :cold:

    My inner, more pessimistic gut feeling instead says that some cruelty like Cascada :yikes: :scream: gonna make it ... :slinkaway

    Ben Ivory has the best song in the German final, by far. His chances of winning are probably 0.1% or so, though. :/

    A really powerful track about how it feels to be a (sexual) minority, channelling all the negative shit into anger instead of revelling in victimhood. :respec:

    One of the best tracks of 2013 so far:
    Ben Ivory - The Righteous Ones

    If Cascada wins, I will top myself. :p
