    I'm sure Only Love Survives will win the public vote.


    I guess my stream is really behind? Ryan already won? I suppose that was the best choice but I still think the song is boring.

    Here is the live performance of the Irish winner:
    Ryan Dolan "Only Love Survives"

    SHAME ON YOUR IRELAND! When the Greeks can put on a much better show than you, it's time to become a British colony again. The stage could not have possibly been any smaller and more cramped.

    Not only that, you're also sending a poof to represent you on the international stage, which is an absolute outrage for such a religious country.

    And sorry but that song is a piece of shit.

    The production is so cheap, it sounds like it was recorded at home on some cheap old synthesiser and it wouldn't even make the playlist at my local gay club (which plays "Welcome to St. Tropez" for 20 years now every night).

    Sorry Ireland but you're not getting out of your semi this year.

    Moving on to Israel, I think the only weak point of KDAM this year is that having three 4th placed songs battling it out for one place is not much of an event. They should have had 4th and 5th place finishers doing that.

    And sorry for the beauty terror but Cascada's Natalie Horler really could do with dropping a kilo or two or TEN.

    Anouk's song is going to be called "Birds" and it will be revealed on 11th March.

    Have you never watched an Irish final before? It's the same studio every single year.

    If anything, I think they had a bit more space than last year.

    I've no ideas about his sexuality, but the 1980s called and wants your ideas about what kind of country Ireland is back.

    Is there any song you like this year Ziggy though? Or will it be a case of picking the best looking turd from the toilet bowl?

    It's already made it to gay clubs here so Poland is only a matter of time.

    I think you're wrong, but we'll wait to see how it looks on a big stage in Malmo.

    Ryan for some reason reminds me of an overweight Florent Amodio....

    Actually, it was kind of surprising that in a final of unknowns the Irish public went for an uptempo song because it's usually ballads by default.

    Yeah I know it's always the same studio. SPICE IT UP IRELAND!

    Come on, I believe you have eyes.

    I think it's the worst Eurovision year in quite a long time.

    I hate to admit it but I like Cascada. It's decent for what it is.

    I think "Only Teardrops" is ok. "Straight into Love" is passable.

    "I Feed You My Love" is amazing and the best song so far by a mile.

    But rest is all crap.

    and I thought Jedward couldn't sing...

    the general level of songs is terribly low this year - even Melodifestivalen disappoints! Denmark and Norway save the competition for me. well, Austria and Ukraine, too . and Cascada ...

    I loved everything about Army of Lovers except the "song."

    I agree... After such a long break, they came up with this? I'm seriously disappointed.
    Btw, I had a strange impression they used playback. La Camilla seemed to sing a second after the actual voice could be heard .

    Why are the male lesbian's backup dancers doing Loreen's choreography from last year?

    It's not THAT bad, Zig. Though I do think it's about 30 seconds too long. It gets repetitive. And some better backup singers would not be amiss.

    This!

    They have put on a fantastic show, I mean:
    - the costumes (especially Barda's underwear and military stars stuck to his nipples)
    - gyrating on the floor
    - Bard 'playing' the keytar
    - Camilla's monologue, starting with: 'I was born 7 million years ago, in Sweden, Africa.'
    - Bard and Barda snogging

    Although the dancing could have been sharper, it looked unrehearsed and unfinished.

    The song was just soooooo bad. Sounded like something hastily put together one afternoon.

    It definitely had potential. The 'nananana' hook was great but the song just wasn't developed enough and the backing beat was really simple.

    I am very disappointed.

    And that song aside, I felt the fourth Melodifestivalen semi was the weakest one so far, by far.

    No songs stood out at all.

    I probably liked "You" the most but that guy has as much charisma as a tablecloth.

    Oh and on another note, I had a dream that the British national final featured 8 'credible' Indie acts.

    Goldie, tUnE-yArDs and The xx are the ones I remember taking part.

    A prophecy that is bound to come true, for sure.

    Alllezfred, I´ll try to catch the songs later and will surely volunteer to vote in FSU Eurovision.

    I want to be Sweden again!

    I hope Robin Stjernberg's "You" and Anton Ewald's "Begging" join the final out of Andra Chansen. I'd be ok with Behrang Miri and Martin Rolinski as well.

    That crazy falsetto Romanian song ("Seven") made it to the final.

    Russia has presented their entry:
    Daria Garipova "What If" (Russia)

    Well this is a piss poor effort. Yeah she can sing but it's just such dull, unimaginative ballad. Would suit a shitty Disney movie perfectly.

    Spain - The Song For El Sueño De Morfeo
    Viewers and jury will be selecting between those three songs:

    "Atrévete"
    "Contigo Hasta el Final"
    "Dame Tu Voz"

    It's all a bit bland but I like "Dame Tu Voz" the most by far.

    Georgia - Nodi & Sophie "Waterfall"

    Spain - El Sueño de Morfeo "Contigo hasta el final"

    Israel - KDAM 2013

    Semi-Final 1 took place last night.

    Kathleen Reiter's "Ad elay" , Shany Zamir's "Forever" and Hobbit Ron Weinreich's "Love is One" (WTF!) qualified to the KDAM final.

    Judah Gavra's "Hayom" went through to the Second Chance round.

    The level of the entries is very high in comparison to most crap we've seen so far this year.

    I think it's going to do very well!

    It indeed sounds like something that could be an Il Divo or Josh Groban single.

    I just dont know how will they make it interesting on the stage.
    Those guys were picked from different "bands", well traditional smaller groups from Adriatic coast - klape.
    They work well with voice coordination, but they seem awkward on the stage.
