ESC 2010: GRAND FINAL RESULTS!

Gosh! This year ESC final was one of the best for me! Why? No-one knows who would be the winner… Very deep on me, I felt it was Turkey, Germany or Belgium! At the end, I was not so lost, and it was Germany!Congratulations Lena and Germany! It was the time for a Big 4 and Western wins again like it used to be.The song:I think it was the easiest song along with the Swedish one and also with the Portuguese. It is so catchy just like it was “Fly on the wings of love” or “I wanna” from Latvia in 2002. The singer:The craziest one of the contest, maybe she was just herself with the easygoing of a young girl, she just had fun on stage and that captivated us for the first time when she won the German National Final. During her performance on ESC final, she robbed me a big smile, in that moment I felt, we had the Rybak’s successor! :PGermany has shown us that ESC is the same ESC we love, someone from long time ago, others from few years ago, like me, with the surprises of the night, the neighbo…

ESC 2010: PREDICTIONS FOR THE SECOND SEMI FINAL

Well, let me tell you, this is the Hardest semi final, and if you feel that there were many surprises in the 1st semi final, don’t go away, there will be more in this one.I just hope at least seven from my ten fovourites qualify to the final. Apart for what I’ve said, I want you to know that the most likeable songs are in this one so I have not only 10 but 17 xD, I chose them for many reasons not only because I liked them but because the voting procedure itself.According how it is compounded the semi itself the televoting and jury voting will qualify the following entries/countries:Azerbaijan (will have the ticket thanks to Turkey, Georgia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Sweden, Denmark and UK)Turkey (the like for the song and the same Diaspora will give them the place in final, I personally think they would not need the second one, I like the mixture of sounds the song has)Sweden (Scandinavian voting and the song is good enough to get votes from the rest)Ireland (The singer is a winner and she …

ESC 2010: REVIEW OF THE RESULTS OF THE 1ST SEMI FINAL

Well, I have to say, I could not watch the first semi final live, so I watched the results on youtube. While I was watching the reading of the envelopes I felt of the energy of the moment. In addition, I have to say I love the simple of the stage, the Norwegians know how to throw the house through the window with simple stuff! ;) (I hope you can understand what I wanted to mean!)Now the analysis of why the ten were the lucky ones:BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINAI think it was the dark horse of the night for many of you, wasn’t it? Well let me tell you, it wasn’t for me… Why? Because the ESC semis have always showed that when are at least 4 balkan countries, there will be at least 3 finalists. I think they were voted by Serbia, Albania, Germany and FYRM, so they was not the wildcard of the night, I think so.But I also have to say the performance was so great and deserving the final, that I don’t mind to see them in the Grand Final! MOLDOVANot a surprise at all, as I wrote in one of my entries …

Review of ESC 2010 - Semi Two (En/Es)

REVIEW OF THE SECOND SEMI FINAL OF ESC 2010.Disponible en Español.It will take place on May 27th in Telenor Arena in Oslo, NO. 21:00 CET / 15:00 -5 GMT (Bogotá’s time for the American fans) I think it’s the strongest one, because all the big fishes are on it! ;). As I did with the First Semi Final, I’m going to write a little description of each entry. The draw of presentation is the following:01 LITHUANIAINCULTO – EASTERN EUROPEAN FUNKEast European Funk: is an up-tempo blending various different music styles, both traditional ones and modern ones. The lyrics have officially been declared an "infectious, somewhat humorous commentary on the differences of Eastern and Western Europe". They can actually be considered a protest against the West overlooking and underestimating Lithuania and Eastern Europe in general.I find it funny and original. They have made a good job, I like it but I can’t see it in the final, I don’t know why, but I’m sure of that! :/East European Funk (funk…
