Y el ganador de la 56a edición del programa de TV favorito de toda Europa; Eurovision Song Contest es…

(19) Azerbaijan – Ell/Nikki – Running Scared with 221 points

The last country from the Caucasus to take part, and one of the most hungers to win the event, why? Well, we’ll find it out next year in Baku.

This year, they were least pretentious, despite a long, very long national final where they pick up to Ell as their contestant, and at the last date, they decided to send a duet with the runner-up; Nikki and following the recipe of Swedish composers, and songwriters; well-known from their second attempt back in 2009. They finally did it, with a tiny difference from the second place, and without big numbers like the Norway’s Fairytale in 2009. They got the right to host the Big Event, in Unknown to all or most of the Europeans; Baku.

The song was quite good for me since the beginning, I have to say that since their debut in 2008, none of their songs was of my taste, but this one had that something that made me have it in mind so many times, being honest I never saw them winning but did in top10, they went simply and humble, and that make them attractive for my eyes, ears and heart, after 2008, I don’t know why, I found some Azeries representatives a little conceited, mostly last year “Azufra”, (Safura) was everything, least humble, while Lena was so crazy and (from here) an easygoing person ;)

I want to congratulate Azerbaijan because they are the clear sample of when we want a thing, we have to try and try until we can see the results. They did it! Sent the right song during one of the most similar in quality, hey I’m not telling it was a bad ESC; I loved it… I’m saying that there were not less than 16 songs that really deserved to be winner, for me of course.

So next year, we’ll know the reason why they wanted to take us all there since their very first attempt to “land of fire”. I’d like to be there, but I’m too far and I haven’t even touched the European lands, to get that easy to Baku that is halfway around the world, for me xD

I hope at least I can enjoy it from the comfort of my couch with some friends, flags, snacks and full screen TV ;)

So Danke Schön Düsseldorf and Salam Bakí !!!

Carpe Diem.

(19) Azerbaijan – Ell/Nikki – Running Scared with 221 points

El último país del Cáucaso en tomar parte y uno de los más hambrientos por la victoria del evento, por qué? Bueno, eso lo sabremos el año que viene en Bakú.

Este año fueron menos pretenciosos, a pesar de una larga final nacional dónde ellos eligieron a Ell como su representante, a última hora decidieron enviar un dueto con la segunda Nikki, y siguiendo la receta de los compositores y letristas Suecos, bien conocido desde su segundo intento en 2009. Finalmente lo lograron, con una muy pequeña diferencia con el segundo y sin grandes números como los obtenidos por "Fairytale" en 2009. Ellos se ganaron el derecho para ser los anfitriones del gran evento, en la desconocida para todos o para la mayoría de los Europeos; Bakú.

La canción fue buena para mi desde el comienzo, debo decir que desde su debut en 2008, ninguna de sus canciones fue de mi gusto, pero esta tenía ese algo que hizo que la tuviera en mente muchas veces, siendo honesto, nunca los ví ganando, pero si en mi top10, ellos fueron sencillos y muy humildes y creo que fue eso lo que los hizo atractivos para mis ojos, oídos y corazón, después de 2008, no sé por qué, encontraba a los Azeries un poco engreídos, principalmente la del año pasado "Azufra" (Safura) fue de todo, menos humilde, mientras que Lena fue muy loquita y (desde mi punto de vista) una persona sencilla ;)

Quiero felicitar a Azerbaijan porque son la muestra clara de cuándo se quiere una cosa, tenemos que intentar e intentar hasta que podamos ver los resultados, lo hicieron! Enviaron la canción correcta durante uno de los más reñidos ESC, y no estoy diciendo que el ESC fuese malo, yo lo amé..., sólo digo que hubieron al menos 16 canciones que merecían ganar o tener buena posición, para mi, desde luego.

Así que el año que viene, conoceremos la razón por la cual ellos nos quisieron llevar allá; desde su primer intento a "Tierra de fuego". Me gustaría ir, pero estoy bien lejos y ni siquiera he tocado tierras Europeas, como para ir así de fácil hasta Bakú, que me queda a mitad del mundo XD

Espero al menos poder disfrutarlo desde mi confortable silla con algunos amigos, banderas, pasabocas y una gran patalla de TV ;).

Así que "Danke Schön Düsseldorf /Gracias Düsseldorf " y "Salam Bakí / Hola Bakú " !!!

Carpe Diem !

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 …
