Eurovision 2012: The Netherlands | Holanda


HOLANDA “YOU AND ME” – JOAN FRANCA (SF2-03)
Para mí, una de las gratas sorpresas de este año, la canción es muy buena por dónde se le tome. Narra la historia de ese amor de infancia que nos marca a todos, con el que se disfruta de la inocencia de la niñez. A pesar de que en el “Songfestival” Joan usó un vestido algo polémico, lo hizo con el fin de ambientar aquella época, en la que ella era la “Pocahontas” y él, su caballero. La canción es muy dulce y tierna, los 3 minutos se te van en menos de 1, lo que la hace un arma de doble filo, porque o te quedas con ella o la descartas.

Holanda partirá 3ª después de la potente voz de Kaliopi, lo que puede estar a su favor si vemos que ambas son diferentes y va antes de la uptempo Maltesa. Espero que este año, finalmente logre llegar a la final, que de verdad se lo merece.

THE NETHERLANDS – “YOU AND ME” – JOAN FRANCA (SF2-03)
For me, one of the great surprises of this year competition, the song is really good from any side you look it and take it. It tells the story of that first love what marked us all, the one we enjoyed in middle of our child innocence. Despite Joan wore a strange outfit in “Songfestival”, she made it with the main raison to take us all to that time our childhood when She were “Pocahontas” and her lover “Mister Schmith” or whatever he name is! Lol The song is sweet and so kind that those 3 minutes flow like water what makes it a little bit dangerous because you take it or leave it.

The Netherlands will go 3rd after the powerful Kaliopi’s voice what could help it because both songs are like oil and water, and it goes before the Maltese uptempo song. I hope this yer they finally make it to the final, because the Netherlands really deserve it.

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 …
