    Agreed! They really need to work on that. I think the song is pretty decent though.

    I like Contigo hasta el final. It's probably my 3rd favorite song so far.

    Georgia's entry is completely unmemorable.

    I hope Love is One wins for Israel

    I was thinking 'this isn't *that* bad' and then the cheap synth chorus kicked in...

    Quite a few finals this weekend. Gor Sujyan will represent Armenia in Malmo singing "Lonely Planet". Wonder if that will fall afoul of brand name violations a la Facebook uh oh uh oh...

    Is there a favorite to win the Swedish final next week? I'm really hoping it's not the bleached blond fetus singing "Tell the World I'm Here."

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! My two favourite songs won the Andra Chansen and went through to the final!

    Sweden - Melodifestivalen Andra Chansen

    You can watch it here: http://www.svtplay.se/video/1047584/2-3-20-00

    You really should because it was AWESOME!

    The level was extremely high, all songs were decent. It was better than pretty much all of the national finals in fact.

    Results:

    8. Eric Gadd "Vi kommer aldrig att förlora" (We'll Never Lose) - it was actually a nice, dad rock, radio friendly track
    7. Cookies 'N Beans "Burning Flags" - a power ballad, which packed a big emotional punch, loved how their voices blended together
    6. Caroline af Ugglas "Hon har inte" (She Hasn't) - serious face ballad, I like her delivery but the instrumentation was very cheap

    Those three got eliminated immediately. Five got through for next voting round THANK GOD the song which placed 5th was:
    5. Eric Segerstedt & Tone Damli "Hello Goodbye" - a mediocre, dull love song, ugh

    And then we had two duels between awesome kick ass songs:
    Behrang Miri "Jalla Dansa Sawa" vs. Anton Ewald's "Begging"

    I thought Miri had it in the bag but Ewald's poppers o'clock club banger won. YEAH!

    The second duel was:
    Robin Stjernberg's "You" vs. Martin Rolinski's "In And Out Of Love"

    Stjernberg had it in the bag from the beginning really. Rolinski had a cool retro disco track but it was time for him to go.

    And this way we got two AMAZING tracks to join the final.

    I would really love Stjernberg to win the whole thing.

    I am pretty sure Miri was 2nd, Ewald was 3rd, Stjernberg was 1st and Rolinski was 4th after the two rounds of voting (maybe Miri and Ewald the other way round).

    Armenia

    Four songs in the final 50/50 jury and televote. And they've chosen this:

    Armenia - Gor Sujyan "Lonely Planet"

    This is unbelievably amateurish. Cheap wedding band vibes.

    Estonia - Eesti Laul 2013

    It was so close!

    Winny Puhh and Grete Paia both got 16 points but since she had one point higher from the televote, she went through to the superfinal. She battled Birgit Õigemeel who got 17 points.

    The televote alone decided the winner and given Paia won the televote in the first round of voting, with Õigemeel to places behind, you would have thought Paia had it in the bag.

    But nope, in an extremely close vote Birgit Õigemeel won with 51% of the vote.

    Estonia - Birgit Õigemeel "Et uus saaks alguse"

    Terrible, predictable, cheesy, bland ballad.

    Winny Puhh were so close to winning the whole thing.

    Hungary - A Dal 2013

    They had a weird format where the jury chose the four best songs and then people voted between those. And they've chosen ByeAlex:

    Hungary - ByeAlex "Kedvesem"

    Sound the authenticity klaxon. One of them has a beanie hat and the other has a guitar!

    WTF is this shit? Seriously. Worst Eurovision year ever.

    Tone Damli couldn't make the dress rehearsal and Matthias Andreasson stood in for her.
    http://www.svtplay.se/klipp/1068456/...?beskrivning=1

    It's great how gender progressive Sweden is and something like this isn't an issue at all for anybody involved (Segersedt doesn't look even remotely uncomfortable).

    Also, on the subject, a picture of Ewald celebration kissing Stjernberg: ^^

    so cooool!
    I can't imagine a similar thing in our country :/...

    btw, I keep my fingers crossed for Robin! seriously, I have goosebumps whenever I listen to "You". plus he's got a nice babyface .

    as for Estonia - it's quite decent, though bland... Armenia is cheap. and Hungary chose one of the worst songs (I wanted Gergo Racz to win).

    Judah Gavra's "We're Beautiful" advanced to the finals in Israeli Kdam.
    The first time Israel participated was on 1973.
    One of the following 10 finalists is going to represent Israel on its 40th year in ESC:

    Judah Gavra - We're Beautiful
    Moran Mazuz - Give Me A Sign -
    She is a blind singer, who used to be in the Israeli Kokhav Nolad (like American Idol)
    Ron Weinreich - Love Is One -
    IDF commander who was injured during the Lebanon war
    Shany Zamir - Forever
    Hila Ben David - Beautiful
    Ran Sandler - Find A Way
    Meital De Razon& Asi Tal- Toda La Noche
    Moran Mazor - Only For Him
    Vladi Blayberg - We are free
    Kathleen Reiter - Jusqu'a moi

    The final Kdam will take place this coming Thursday, but Israelis can vote for their favorite song from today.

    I want Shany Zamir to win. It's a poppers o'clock Euro trash bonanza! I love it!

    Although those high notes are painful to hear.

    Vladi Blayberg is just .

    Dramz in Macedonia.

    "Imperija" was terribly received and Macedonian TV pulled the clip from YT and requested changes to both the song and the video.

    The song will have new lyrics, there will be a new arrangement (hopefully no more cheap old synthesiser in the chorus ) and the video will be edited again.

    Video could have possibly been pulled because it shows the statue of Alexander the Great which has recently been erected in Skopje and you can imagine what the Greeks' reaction to that will be.

    I heard that Elitsa was really upset that Kismet won. I hope they change the song a lot.

    I'm glad Serbia finally brought something entertaining to this year's contest. I like the girl with horns

    That was actually the worst part of the whole show.

    This, on the other hand, is awesome.

    They were the clear favourites to win so no surprise here. I think their song was written by the "Molitva" composer, IIRC.

    What does surprise me is how weak their vocals are, the blonde one aside, given they are the three finalists of Prvi Glas Srbije (Serbian Voice).

    You mean the best, right?

    Belarus has a new song http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=Szf_HOmW5p0

    It's not very original but at least it's upbeat.

    Ugh. I actually preferred (the terrible) "Rhythm of Love." That's really awful.

    Moje 3 are on repeat all day for me. Fabulous song, everything an Eurovision song should be. Super camp, over the top, kitsch, fabulous!

    A high quality version here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWbAdDB1ukE

    The more you watch it, the more fabulous detail you notice. The facial expressions of the "devil" girl are just...

    The amateurish WTF choreography makes Lipnitskaia's programs look sophisticated.

    Amazing!

    I am surprised it's Mirna Radulovic ('the angel') who won Prvi Glas Srbije since she has the weakest vocal out of the three. Nevena Bozovic (the blonde) is the best, by far (although she had that one bum note towards the end).

    Belarussan song was originally called "Soleo" (much better name) and was posted by the composer on his my space in 2008 so it could potentially get disqualified.

    It looks like the Macedonian song is going to be changed completely by an acclaimed Macedonian composer.

    My favourite Serbian journalist reaction after Moje 3 win (about Sara Jovanovic): 'It's not the first voice of Serbia but the first sex shop of Bulgaria.'

    Kathleen Reiter - Jusqu'a moi
    Decided to withdraw from the final Kdam tomorrow.
    She actually had good chances to win due to her popularity as the winner of the Israeli The Voice.
    Not sure about the reasons for her withdrawal.
