Eurovision 2017

Recommended Posts

It seems very early to me, but the UK is choosing its Eurovision entry tonight (and I completely forgot to watch the programme :doh:).

 

Any other entries chosen yet?

 

I will post the UK entry when I find out what it is :naughty:

I prefered Olivia, but probably this was the best choice from the songs you got offered. At least she can sing even if this ballad is snoozy.

 

I don't know what the BBC did though - they got offered this song and it was dismissed. Imho it's a mile better than everything today.

Next ballad :rolleyes:

 

Finland.png  From Finland

 

I like it though, imho it's one that has this necessary part of specialness: it has this amazing haunting, dark feeling and the piano part is brilliant.

We take part, but I don't know the singer and the song isn't released yet...

 

Well the contest isn't until May - I'm surprised some songs have been chosen so early

We have a lot of new entries :)

Germany.png  This is our entry from Germany


Official video:



Live:



Personally I like it, it's very generic, but I'm feeling wide and free while listening to the chorus. I'm very solely though, it gets so much negative response and "everyone" says it's bland, the chorus isn't strong, it's too vanilla...

Then we have the next big bunch of female ballads :shocked:

Switzerland.png  Switzerland

Poland.png  Poland

Malta.png  Malta

Hungary.png  Hungary has choosen a ethno-song:

France.png  This is the French entry - reminds me a bit of Stromae



Spain.png  And the Spanish one. It's a bit of a scandal because the jury decided after a tie between him as jury favorite and another televoting favorite.



Italy.png  And last but (really) not least: Italy

He gets huge positive reactions and is the favorite so far. But of course many songs are still to come.

English translation of the lyrics:

If you'll go onto Youtube you'll find some explanations as well



I like it, it's positive and upbeat, he has a lot of charisma and it doesn't have the same boring I'm-In-Love/I'm-So-Sad-After-Separation-lyrics.

Well, I agree with you about Italy - I didn't like his voice at first, but at least the song is a bit different.

 

I liked how the Spanish song started, but I think the English chorus spoilt it.

 

I quite liked the French song too.

 

 

But I still keep going back to the Finnish song

We chose a winner tonight. I can post a link tomorrow, but it's Omar Naber- On my way :)

After a long time I actually like the song, I can't believe I do ???? but it was the most intense finals ever, I have to admit.

Austrian entry. I kind of like it, it's nothing "new" or "extraordinary" - but a nice song...
