Elitsa & Stoyan (Eurovision 2007) to represent Bulgaria again in Malmo
I swear I've heard a song with same tune as Copacabanana. It's a lot of fun though and I wouldn't mind it being the Swedish entry.
I am excited about this. Water was awesome so hopefully their new song will be good too.
Every kid in the country is probably voting for it, I fear for the sanity of all Kindergarten teachers who'll have to listen to it on repeat for a year or so. It was interesting to read the English translation, it looks so very proper! The Swedish version is filled with "nysvenska" and slang.
I'm kinda hoping YOHIO wins (even if the song kinda sucks - he didn't get to write his own apparently) because being a hetero boy looking like that in a small town up north isn't a cake walk and I'd be pleased if people'd embrace it (and also it's fun to get some faux-Japanese musicians in contrast to the abundance of faux-Americans )
otoh, Swedish House Wives were robbed of a place in the final!
"Water" is indeed a Eurovision legend and one of the more memorable tracks so good choice Bulgaria.
Shah, come on. Swedish House Wives was typical schlager crap (I guess that might be a bad thing or a good thing depending on your point of view ).
Evilynn, if YOHIO wins, I will top myself. Pretty much every single song that has qualified to the final so far is more fun, better or both.
"Copacabana" is simply glorious in a so-bad-it's-good way, David Lindgren's song really pucks a punch and let's not forget about the return of one of the best musical acts ever: Army of Lovers. I really really hope that their comeback track kicks ass and wins.
Oh and just a reminder of what STUPID FINNISH PEOPLE did not pick.
This is an absolute masterpiece. I still cannot believe it lost to that cheap, trashy piece of crap.
Mikael Saari "We Should Be Through"
*makes me cry each time*
Here is an exclusive clip from Croatian entry http://youtu.be/9LP5TXGKDFQ
They start singing at 0:35
Thanks. Hard to say anything about it just after hearing them (badly ) harmonising in the studio, trying things out.
Whatever it's going to sound like, at least it will stand out with them going for a traditional folk music angle.
The song will be recorded this week, so I will post it here as soon as I have it.
From what I heard - It will be different.
haha, I agree about Swedish House Wives - it was schlager crap extreme, but I found it quite amusing . more than a song about dead fish swimming upstream .
my words fail me to describe what I feel when I see/hear "Copacabanana" . although the melody somehow sounds familiar. "Dragostea din tei," maybe?
now I'm waiting for Army of Lovers .
and Valentina Monetta's song .
and sorry, but the Finnish song is ridiculously bad...
YAY! I loved "Water!" It's why I chose to be Bulgaria in the FSU Eurovision contest. Hope it's good this year!
Valetina Monetta's song is called "Chrysalis" and based on the description it probably will be very seriousface and not at all like Facebook.
Unfortunately, that was the exact same impression I got from reading about the song. To make up for it, I think Russia should track down the people who wrote the Plushenko tribune song ("Evan Lysacek can't you see/ You are no superhero to me") and create a stage show inspired by this.
On the Valentina Monetta front, especially considering how many social networks have only two syllables.
Is there any word on what the UK's doing?
Internal selection. Trying to find a major artist who will agree to represent them. And it won't be easy.
So far it's been leaked that Hurts and Sophie Ellis-Bextor have been approached and both said 'No.'
Unser Song für Malmö 2013 in Germany live online at the moment...I completely forgot about it and I've seen only 3 songs... I hope to get a recap afterwards...
I'm afraid Cascada is going to win this, despite a crap song...
Germany seriously has worst case scenario now ... Cascada won ...
Right or wrong, "my" country??? Cannot root for this crap, just puke ...
Jesus Christ, are most Germans totally tone deaf? Her vocals were simply atrocious.
Cascada has had some massive dance hits in the past but this song isn't even particularly catchy. It's just bad. It won't even place top 10.
Oh well, this was very predictable.
Nice on "Erste" to post all performances on their website. You can watch them here: http://www.eurovision.de/teilnehmer/index.html
Can't be arsed to listen to them all atm but:
Ben Pearce "Righteous Ones" - best song by far but he sounded like a sheep live, I'm sorry
Blitzkids mvt. "Heart on the Line" - fairly amusing but she can't sing either
Söhne Mannheims "One Love" - expected a lot but it's quite a generic urban song, meh
So well by the looks of it, everybody was shit.
Exactly, everyone was shit so I don't understand the complaints about Cascada winning. She deserved to win imo. Unless you guys really wanted LaBrassBanda to win. I suppose that would have been funny.
It would be funny. Funny as in, funny /slitwrist. ;P
Ok so more news!
Cyprus Revealed Their Entry
Despina Olympiou "An Me Thimase"
It's really shit. Dull dull boring.
Slovenia Revealed Their Entry
Hannah "Straight Into Love"
Now that is more like it! An average dance track but at least it doesn't put you to sleep. Those are studio vocals but she seems to have a powerful voice. Well this is shit but at least Eurovision happy clappy kind of shit.
Well, I love Cascada, so I guess I'm glad they'll be at Eurovision.
Österreich Rockt den Song Contest! is on live now and you can watch it here:
I hope the guy who butchered Euphoria doesn't win.
Haha that was terrible indeed.
The way Austrian final works is they sing two songs.
One is a song that won Eurovision and the other is the song they want to represent Austria with.
So far we had Elija murdering "Euphoria" and Falco Luneau performing his "Rise Above The Night" (BORING!) and now Yela is performing "Feels Like Home" (BORING! x3).
Don't know why I'm even watching this given all Austrian songs this year are so dull.
Natalia Kelly is going to win by a massive landslide anyway.
Elija is performing his song now and I have to say it's best out of the three we had so far. Generic pop rock but very catchy and radio friendly. At least he's not boring you to death.
Natalia Kelly is also boring me.
Her live vocals aren't very sharp, she's failing to hit the higher notes, it seems to me.
There's no way Natalia's not going to win. I suppose that's the best choice they have. I miss the Trackshittaz. At least their song was catchy.
