We’ve just left the first dress rehearsal for the final and have now seen all the songs in the order with their stage performances. Here is what is happening
My favourite Belarus is on 3rd. This means he is buggered. He’s between two other uptempo songs and makes no impact, despite a shirt split of Uncle Sp levels.
My 2nd fav Greece is also buggered. He is in the middle of the show so is forgettable, and it seems in real life instead of being the hip-shaking lover he sounds like, he looks like a geek.
France is gay, gay, GAY. Think pink, think fairy wings. Oh yes.
Ireland has the worst song and frontwoman in the show
It could actually be two years in Finland after Hanne’s great song.
Bosnia has come dressed as a Xmas tree.
Bulgaria has an amazing drum bit. It could only be better if it were done by men in hotpants
Sweden get naked.
Russia could win. The song is a little outdated but is made better by a bit where they fall through the internet
Serbia might win but the girlfest didn’t have the same impact it did on semi-final night. Instead Slovenia are going to be the former Yugoslav top song.
About 14 people clapped after Scooch. They need to can the talky bits.
Ukraine is ridiculous, and it is on Scooch so there are two shit songs in a row. ESC have realised this and put a little break in the middle. Ukraine is really shit, but in an amazing way. It is sung by Timmy Mallett.
Turkey is much later in the contest than Greece so I no longer think they’ll get confused. It’s sung by a man who has had 24 number 1 hits, is 3 songs from the end and … is going to win.
Bottom Line: Turkey, Slovenia or Bulgaria are going to win. Poor Koldun.
