Croatia has chosen "Mižerija" by Goran Topolovac as their song (not published yet) and now will be choosing the klapa (traditional folk band) to perform it. This has caused some uproar because the whole point of a klapa is that it's you know... an actual band and not something like a boyband that you opportunistically cobble together. Lys Assia who failed to qualify to Swiss finals was rumoured to be representing San Marino but that turned out to be untrue. San Marino is at the moment choosing between four artists. Two are local and two are from Hong Kong and have no relation to San Marino whatsoever. Serbians have until Monday to submit the songs and a lot of major and popular artists did so. Interestingly the three girls who have made it to the final of a X-Factor/Idol-like Serbian show submitted a song together. First Finnish semi-final has taken place and the two songs which qualified to the final are from second place Diandra Flores "Colliding Into You" and from first place Mikael Saari "We Should Be Through". I find Diandra really mediocre, to be honest. Both vocal and song like a million others. Mikael is great. He seems really awkard but in a cute way. Lovely vocal, beautiful beautiful song. If he wins (which I expect him to), he should easily make top 10 in Malmo. Moldavia has a rather terribly organised selection. They got 126 songs and 49 singers submitted. Singers have two days to pick a song they will sing in the semi-final and then another two days to negotiate with the composer and arrange the song (LOL!). Also there's nothing forbidding same song to be chosen by different singers. It's going to be a total hot mess.
