The Big Saturday is coming!

Tomorrow, it will be one of those days you don't wanna loss a thing, well, what's that special thing of tomorrow, Saturday 6th of February?... Well so many things, first I have to tell you, I'm a big fan of the Eurovision Song Contest ! For those who don't know a thing about that and now are wondering "What is that?", I have to tell you that is a contest where almost all the countries from Europe plus Israel and Eurasia (Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia) send a song and an artist to represent the country in one night show (actually, now there are arround 40 countries, so is a three nights show, 2 semis and the Big Finale), what is broadcast to all the participant countries, even Australia broadcasts it, I love this contest for everything, the songs, the languages and the history itself!

Back to what I concern about, it's a big Satuday afternoon to me, because it will be 3 national finals, from one of Countries I follow the most, Norway (this year host of the contest, previous winner), Iceland (what was second last year) and Denmark (what won 10 years ago). Beside it begins the preselection I love the most, Melodifestivalen (Sweden preshow or National final to pick up its song and artist to the contest) its first of four heat will be tomorrow.

I'd like to do a kind of review of the three show, My favs, the possibles winners of the two of the three finals, because I don't know the whole songs from Denmark, but I heard the snippets of each 10 songs. (they're very good)

Let's talk about the Norway's Big Final - Melodi Grand Prix 2010, after three heats and one Second Chance round (Siste Sjansen) Norwegian people chose the ones who could represent them at the Big night Show (The great final, next May, 29th)

The running order for the final will be:

1. A1 - Don't wanna lose you again (One of my favs)


2. Maria Haukaas Storeng - Make My Day


3. Venke Knutson - Jealous 'cause I love you (I'd like this one wins)


4. Bjørn Johan Muri - Yes man


5. Maria Arredondo - The touch (I like it very much)


6. Alexander Stenerud - Give it to me


7. Didrik Solli-Tangen - My heart is yours


8. Keep of Kalessin - The dragontower (It would be a nice choise)



Well Norwegians have chosen well, and the 8 songs are great ! I hope they can chose the one what can make them scored at least in top Ten in the Great Final of ESC!

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….


42. LITHUANIA
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?!


41. GEORGIA
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.


40. ISRAEL
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.

39. ALBANIA
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: 
14. NORWAY
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.


13. ESTONIA
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. 


12. SWITZERLAND
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.


11. NETHERLANDS
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.
28. SWEDEN
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.

27. IRELAND
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 ;).

26. AUSTRALIA
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.

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