    We have to vote for the songs, but for me - Eurovison is all about the performance
    Need to make new scientific approach tonight for the voting.

    I listened to all the FSU finalists' songs today and I have two responses:

    The amount of dubstep abuse is out of control--and I still preferred many of those songs to the others.

    With the exception of Norway, Eastern Europe is kicking Western Europe's ass.

    I am still rooting for Norway and against Malta, but more importantly, I'm hoping for voidy, crazy, campy, and insane stage shows.

    Sweet Yesus, I survived to listen all the FSu finalists and sent my votes to our great Mr. Allezfred.


    The tabloids in Finland are making a big issue of our song Marry me maybe be banned because the singer Krista S. has said that it is a protest against Finland not having a possibility for the same sex couples to marry (in church), and in the song contest, you should not have political themes. We´ll see...

    The rehearsals just change completely how some of the songs are received.

    Slovenia's presentation should live up to the song's potential, hopefully.

    Ukraine's presentation surely has to be a joke... The journalists laughed when the giant carried Zlata on stage at the beginning. During the second rehearsal, they added the effect of the stage shaking when Zlata is being carried. Camera was shaking also and there was a sound effect of loud foosteps. Later during the performance, she almost fell off the box she was standing on (waving her arms too frantically). Those three rehearsals turned her from one of the favourites into a laughing stock and none of the journalists are taking her seriously any more. So well done, Ukraine.

    Netherlands should make an incredible impact. Simple but stylish and effective.

    Montenegro totally blew it. The lack of choreography and the lack of dancers is going to be very costly. High school performance vibes.

    Pojavis is way out of his comfort zone. Really nervous and tense.

    I hope Lanskaya blews the live vocals because that song could not possibly be any more cheap and trashy.

    Moldova's presentation is fantastic and so are the live vocals. Why did you useless bitches not vote for this song to go through to the final? Honestly.

    Ireland's presentation is terrible. The cheap Celtic patterns? Seriously? And the leather daddy costume? Why? It's a shame because his vocals are fantastic. Backing singers really suck, though.

    Despina looks beautiful and sings well. Shame the song is so boring.

    Serbia's costumes are shockingly bad. Fortunately they have kept the WTF choreography after all. Good vocals, should easily sail through to the final.

    You remember when the camera zoomed way out when Tatu were about to kiss in order to spare the viewers from this shocking happening?

    Times have move on, fortunately, and EBU has given a green light to Krista kissing one of her female background singers, which is her expression of support for gay marriage in Finland and everywhere else in the world (and attention whoring obv).

    Second semi-final rehearsals have started.

    I thought Iceland was dead in the water but the presentation of the song is beautiful, very professional and he has good stage presence. I think it's going to qualify.

    Elitsa fell over behind the drums during the rehearsal. When they said they are aiming to place top 5 again, the journalists laughed.

    I hate the Azeri song but the presentation is extremely strong. Great concept behind it, it's different, interesting and continues to capture your attention. It's going to do very well, for sure.

    Monetta is bringing the drama. Top 10 in the final I hope!

    Really? I'll be surprised if it's Top 10 in the semi.

    Romania

    I'm almost rooting for it now but not quite. I'm disappointed that Norway is the same as the national final. I wanted a new dress.

    Thanks for the links!

    The stage looks great and there will (definitely) be voids. Hopefully that will make up for the barrage of blah ballads.

    The Romanian rehearsal clip is brilliant--truly non-stop WTF. And the choreography appears to have been done by Mr. G from Summer Heights High.

    Romanian performance is going to be such a hot mess. I'm not sure whether it's so bad it's good or whether it's just really shit but edging towards the latter. Apparently his rehearsal sparked a lot of laughter as well as looks of disgust in the press room.

    Fortunately so far Switzerland's performances have been reported to have been a bit of a chaotic mess. The old guy seems lost and confused.

    Georgian rehearsals are reported to have left very strong impressions and journalists have been talking about a possible win for Georgia. Please no. I don't want another shitty dull ballad like "Believe" or "Running Scared" winning. I hate Denmark but it's definitely preferable to Azerbaijani or Georgian pudding.

    Random news: Carola is going to be one of the Interval Act performances during the final (WHY?!! ).

    The Belarussan delegation has brought in a lot of vodka for their party but since they'd have to pay around 40k euro customs for it, they are going to serve Absolut instead.

    Vocally it's being reported as being very strong. The presentation has a surprise element (there's something hidden under her dress that she slowly reveals, there is a costume change and wind machines). I think it should qualify all right.

    I have also wanted more but that straitjacket dress is absolutely incredible and fits the song perfectly. I understand them adding the sparkle onto it because it's such a huge stage but it made it look quite cheap.

    She has fantastic stage presence. Hopefully it will be enough. I would really love Norway to win. Can't imagine Denmark losing though.

    So has everyone voted yet? I'm predicting that Norway will be FSU's winner.

    I'm still waiting on about 10 voters, so hopefully most of them will have their votes to me by the end of today.
