The Big Saturday is coming - Part II

Still talking about the Big Saturday, but now about the Icelandic National Final (Söngvakeppni Sjóvarpsins 2010, really hard to write, huh?) I wonder how many other followers of the National Selections, who will win the Icelandic one? Six songs and acts will be fighting for the golden ticket to Oslo, among them, I find three songs that really captivate me, I will put into brackets the one I'd like they send to ESC. The line-up for the final is the following: 1. Íris Hólm - The one (It's a beutiful ballad and voice, but it has not the strongest it needs to place well at ESC) 2. Matti Matt - Out of sight (I like the voice of the singer, it reminds me Jon Bon Jovi's voice, besides it sounds nice) 3. Hvanndalsbræður - Gleði og glens (In spite I don't know a thing of Icelandic, I love the rhythm and the easygoing this song could make you move your feet and head, I like this one wins, it's my favourite song!) 4. Jógvan Hansen - One more day (It's my second choise, I don't know if it's the song itself, the singer or even the lyrics, but I felt in love of this song too) 5. Sjonni Brink - Waterslide (I wrote, they were 3, but this one has a nice country mixture of sounds with a very special icelandic touch) 6. Hera Björk - Je ne sais quoi (If she were singing a song like she sang last year on the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, I would have bet for her, but the song is not what I like to hear this year on ESC, so sorry Hera, I will see you on stage next year, I hope) Well, about the Melodifestivalen and the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, I'd like to talk about, but there aren't available the songs online, and I just listened to the snippets and it's really to have a correct Idea of what could it happen, but however I could say, that I'm impatiently waiting for the Melodifestivalen, Hopping Jessica, Linda go directly to the Final and Ola and Salem to the Andra Chansen (Second chance round). Even though, you can listen all the snippets of the Melodifestivalen first heat here where it says "Lyssna på" And I don't forget the Danish Final Selection, waiting not disappoint me and chose the best one, you can listen the snippets of the ten acts, Just select the sound symbol right next to each artist picture, I bet for Bryan Rice, Joakim Tranberg, Sukkerchok and Chanée and N'evergreen. (Oh the songs are available, so I am gonna listen to all of them right now) What are you waiting for join me too ? here

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before all the Lights Get On (1s Part)

It's Eurovision Time and there are tops on line from the whole world, well, sometimes I made mine, and this year, I've been working on that too. 
Here are the first delivery of what is my point of view according to the first listening and the song itself, let’s start this….

The singer has a great attitude and she can deliver a good version live of the song but the main problem is the buildup of the song itself, what is that?!

I think she has one of the best voices of this year, the message of the song is good but I cannot stand the old-fashioned of this song, maybe if it had had some modern instrumentation it would work much better at first listening.

Most of the fans are going to hate me, but I cannot find a gap in this song, I know it’s an up-tempo and he has a nice voice but it wasn’t enough to captivate me at first. Maybe in rehearsals or in his semifinal will make me change my mind, but it’s still not my cup of tea.

It’s too dram…

Eurovision 2017: My General top42 Before All the Lights Get On (3d Part)

I'm going to divide the last 14 places into two parts. Here are the places 14 to 8: 
Aleksandr Walmann has great vocals and JOWST one of the best mixes of the year. It will depend on what they have to performance it. I love the song and it was one of my favs from MGP this year.I’d like to see Aleksandr by himself in future too.

Verona is a nice retro-eighties-song. Despite I cannot really find chemistry between the singers the song itself it’s really good.The risk will be in his vocals, Laura sings pretty well, but Koit could be penalized with his, I’m afraid. 

Flawless voice and great live performance, I hope they can make a great show live using a good backdrop and nice graphics that helps to sell their song. Switzerland could be placing really well this year, a top10 for sure if they have all the ingredients ready.

For 5th year in a row, The Netherlands sends a song I like since I hear at first time. I love the harmonies of the t…

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before All the Lights Get On (2nd Part)

I wanted to post my top42 before the rehearsals, I could not make it but I will post it before the Shows are broadcasted.
I’m a Swedish lover, but I cannot build a bridge with Bengtsson’s song, I know he has a great live show but I cannot stand the song itself. For me is not a winner, nor a top10 for Sweden. Sorry Sweden for second year in a row I won’t be crossing my fingers for you, but I aware you’ll be in the final.

It’s a nice 90’s-early-00’s ballad song, but I did not feel in love with it at first listening, 7th time winner of Eurovision is still lost for my taste despite I love its entries back in 2010, 2014 and 2015 ;).

After the amazing Dami Im I was a bit disappointed about this song once I heard it at first time, I kinda like it but without being my ultimate favorite, I like it but I will not regret if they did not get through the final.

I like it since the first listening but being realistic, it has not a strong gap that makes you …
