So it is time to break out the sequins and the glitter and to get ready for the cheese-fest that is the biggest and greatest singing competition in the world… Eurovision!! I don’t know if anyone watched last nights semi-final (the first, the second is on Thur), but I was greatly impressed by most of the acts. In my little notes there were only two that got the ‘rubbish’ notation (Montenegro and Russia), with a few more ‘like – but won’t make it’…. I think there might also have been an ‘Ok – but no better.’
Out of the eighteen acts that were performing last night I picked my Top 10 (only ten go through) with two possibles that might make it (apparently the voting isn’t always on performance!!). I will admit, it was helped having already bought the Eurovision album so I know how the songs should sound post-production. With this, my list of acts to go through were:
Iceland, Greece, Latvia, Switzerland, Israel, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Moldova and Cyprus with my two possibilities being Albania and Romania.
Those of you who have followed any Eurovision news might note that the Russian Grannies didn’t make my list, not because I didn’t think they’d not make it, but because I just wasn’t impressed with their performance… what can I say, I’m more impartial than the general public of Europe!! ;o)
As it turns out, with the exception of the Russian Grannies, the other nine acts going through to Saturdays final can all be found on my list… with the exceptions being Latvia, Switzerland and Israel, which is a shame as they were all good performances.
Coming next in Semi-final Two will be Serbia, Macedonia, The Netherlands, Malta, Belarus, Portugal, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Sweden, Georgia, Turkey, Estonia, Slovakia, Norway, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and finally, Lithuania…. I can’t wait!!! 😀
