The Netherlands 2012: JOAN FRANKA!!!!

Yaaaaaay, GO JOAN!!, the Nationaal Songfestival 2012 got 6 artists in 3 duels and a great winner!!. The Netherlands made a national selection this year and the show was really good, i hope they stay with this way of selection for some years cause its interesting and much better than the past years. I liked all the artists but i think they select them because they are good and not because of theirs songs cause there were some weak songs in the selection. When the names of the artists were announced i was really excited to see Joan, Kim and Pearl in the competition then when i heard some seconds of the songs i started to feel that the one i was going to like the most was Joan and yeah it turned out that way so im very happy with this selection!

"You and me" a cute little song that made me sing along. The best song of the 6 participants in my opinion, about the performance i think it can be better, they should find a better backing vocalist cause i didnt like this one. Joan is a fantastic and genuine artist, im very happy for her and i hope she can be one of the finalists in may cause this is a good song and deserve to get into the final, The Netherlands is already one of my favorites of this year. Well done to the people who voted for Joan! GO JOAN!!!
Congratulations to Joan and i wish her all the best for Eurovision!!

Slovenia 2012: Eva Boto - Verjamem

Slovenia made a kinda Unser star fur XX to select their entry this year and all the balkan countries selected famous artists internally, so a new artist born and the song Verjamem is the one that the talented Eva Boto is going to sing on Baku.

The selection started last year, there were a lot of shows to select and eliminate singers, at the end only 2(3) singers survived, Eva Boto and the twins Nika & Eva. I have to say that my favorites were the twins cause they have something that made me like them and Boto was a better singer but i didnt see any charisma on her. Tonight when i watched the performance of Verjamem i was like "wow" this song suits her so well, she looked great, her vocals were flawless as always and she got the perfect energy for that song, so Slovenia made the right decision and i can see Eva doing very well and better than other Balkan super starts. Go Eva and good luck in May!

Finland 2012: Pernilla Karlsson - När jag blundar

This year Finland selected their entry with a new selection show, no Euroviisut 2012 but UMK where there was a long selection of songs with juries and televote and other things that i didnt followed cause only 1 of my favorites qualified to the selection shows, and yes "När jag blundar" was the only song i liked in the finalists.

Even if i like the song, i have to say that this performance is BLAND, so boring i hope can do it better cause i cant see this going to the final right now, anyway good luck to Pernilla and i hope the song stay in Swedish.

Melodifestivalen 2012: Semifinal 4 - Rehearsals

The last semifinal is getting closer and tomorrow we are going to listen to the winner of this year :´(. Now some pics from the rehearsals:

1. The Girl - Charlotte Perrelli
2. Allting blir bra igen - OPA!
3. Land of Broken Dreams - Dynazty
4. Don't Let Me Down - Lotta Engberg och Christer Sjögren
5. Goosebumps - Hanna Lindblad
6. Kyss mig - Axel Algmark
7. Why Start A Fire - Lisa Miskovsky
8. Amazing - Danny Saucedo

There is less hope in me right now :( so i hope i like the song that obviously is going to win from the snippet all i can say is that i think is not the best song of this year but i'll wait to listen the whole but im sure that i'll still thinking the same, from the 1min clips of the rehearsals i only liked Axel Algmark and i guess he is chanceless but i wish him all the best for the Semifinal. Swedish people vote for Melodi nummer 6!!

Ireland 2012: They are BACK! Jedward to Baku!

Woooooohooo yaaaay, im very happy right now. My Eurovision 2011 winners are going to represent Ireland for the 2nd time in a row with the song "Waterline", i have to say that i wanted to post about this song before the final but i wasnt sure, when i heard it for the 1st time on the radio show i was a bit disappointed cause i was waiting for something "boom" and strong like Lipstick and we got an american pop/punk song but then after 4 or 5 times hearing the song i started to like it and i got why they didnt bring a Lipstick 2 but tonight in the final i started to love it! and im loving this because of the boys, their energy is soo great, i just love them.

The performance was ok, maybe their vocals werent the best but it was the same last year so i think this is going to be much better in Eurovision.
Here are the Lyrics of Waterline

Flood gates, can't wait
here she comes, shut'em fast
better shut'em fast
too late, swept away
feel the rush after the fact

Coming up beneath me
never been in love so
deeply before

I am close to the waterline
i thought that i'd been over my head
for the last time
i'm so close to the waterline
and the way i'm loving her now
i know this is bound to go down as the big one.

Whistle blast, lights flash
throw a rope, grab a hold
feel the undertow
she laughs, waves crash
what's the use i can't let her go

Coming up beneath me
never been in love so
deeply before

I am close to the waterline
i thought that i'd been over my head
for the last time
i'm so close to the waterline
and the way i'm loving her now
i know this is bound to go down as the big one.

Flood gates, can't wait
here she comes, shut'em fast
better shut'em fast
too late, swept away
feel the rush

I am close to the waterline
and the way i'm loving her now
i know this is bound to go down as the one

I am close to the waterline
i thought that i'd been over my head
for the last time
i'm so close to the waterline
and the way i'm loving her now
i know this is bound to go down as the big one.
The studio version:


Austria 2012: Shake your ass with Trackshittaz

Woki mit deim popo, woki mit deim oh oh, last year i didnt like them but this year hmm i think the song is pretty catchy, the performance was good and there was nothing better (just Conchita that came 2nd) so im glad they won.

The lovely Conchita Wurst came 2nd this year and she was my number 1, the song is kinda nice but she needed something better to go to Eurovision, so i hope to see her next year with a great song.

There is something in Lukas that i really like, i dont think he is hot but i like him, he is very f*ckable and he knows how to shake his ass.

This is fun, catchy and they did a good performance so i wish them all the best for Eurovision and i hope to see more of Lukas hehe.
Here is the official video:

Good luck Austria!

Belarus 2012: Bye bye Alyona Laskaya, Hello Litesound

Hehehe what can we expect from Belarus? Well here they are, this band tried a lot of times and this year were the favorites but Lanskaya the villain of this movie "won". Now it seems that she didnt won and the results were faked so the real winners were the guys from Litesound. So Alyona thanks for your participation if you need someone to talk call the bald guy from Ukraine 2010. Here is their song (dont know if they are going to change it) here are the winners, here are the Heroes:

Melodifestivalen 2012 - Deltävling 3: Kärleken kärleken kärleken oj oj oj

I dont even know how to start this post about the 3rd semifinal of the Melodifestivalen 2012. Theres not a lot of things to say, i didnt like this semifinal, i dont know if its because of my favorite or it was just a bad semifinal. I really enjoy the MF and im enjoying this year so far but not so much as i should cause i feel im going to be disappointed at the end so i dont want to get super excited and sadly im still getting excited and i still hope for some surprises but deep inside i know its going to so hard but thats other topic, lets start with the songs of this semi:

1. Youngblood - Youngblood
Ok, what can i say? i think Kempe should take some years off from MF or find someone to make him good lyrics, i just cant stand the horrible lyrics of this song and its a surprise cause i never imagine something worse than Popular but here it is. The whole performance was awkward for me cause they were so bad and i think they gave their best but im sorry they doesnt have charisma and their vocal performance wasnt good so Swedish people why did you voted for this? the chorus might be catchy i get that but c'mon the performance was meh, the song is a very bad version of manboy and they 5 guys together are like 2% of Eric Saade so i dont get how this is in Andra Chansen, still i wish them good luck.

2. I mina drömmar - Maria BenHajji
Awww Maria!, She is so beautiful, she was my favorite in the webjoker competition and im very happy she made it to the MF, i really love this song since the 1st day i heard it, the performance was ok, it wasnt great and she was so nervous at the first part of the song and it was sad cause she is a great singer but her vocals were shaky when she started singing but then after the 1st chorus she was great. This is one of my favorite songs of this year and im sure i'll sing/heard it a lot this year. I send all my love to Maria and the composers of this lovely song.

3. Förlåt mig - Mattias Andréasson
The best of the semifinal, its so sad that he didnt get the result he deserved, i like the song he did a fantastic performance and the audience voted for a talentless band and an orange old man with a playback barbie, whatever, well done Mattias and im glad he is doing well on Itunes.

4. Just A Little Bit - Love Generation
Last year i didnt like them because i was expecting something better and this year its the same, it doesnt matter if its a Redone song, the girls are just not good but i have to admit that they were much better than last year and much much better than Kempe's boyband, the song was just ok and i dont get why did they gave a last part solo to the worst singer? the blond girl totally ruined everything in that part. Still i think they deserved a top 5 place but they dont have fangirls/kempefans to vote for them.

5. Sanningen - Carolina Wallin Pérez
She is so sweet, she was one of the surprises of this semifinal cause when i listened to the song i thought it was nice but her performance was so good and real that i was hoping for a top 5 surprise but whatever she did a fantastic job and she should be happy cause it was one of the best performances of the night.

6. Lovelight - Andreas Johnson
After i watched the 1min clip of the rehearsals he was my favorite and im not a huge fan of him but his performance was really good and his final spot was robbed so i understand why he was mad and im with him, i wish him all the best in Andra chansen.

7. Why Am I Crying - Molly Sandén
I like her song but i dont think its a good entry for eurovision, its a nice ballad but not a fabulous ballad, the performance was really good and im glad she got her ticket to Globen!

8. Mirakel - Björn Ranelid feat. Sara Li
I like this but its sad thats its in globen when other good songs were eliminated, so i really get why all the artists are mad with the results of this song, i wonder if Sara li sang cause im sure it was 100% playback. My favorite part of this was when he tried to sing and the Kärleken kärleken kärleken kärleken oj oj oj.

The best performance of the semifinal was this one:
Sarah and Gina are doing such an awesome job as host!

8.I mina drömmar - Maria BenHajji
7.Sanningen - Carolina Wallin Perez
6.Just a little bit - Love Generation
5.Förlåt mig - Mattias Andreasson

Andra Chansen
Youngblood - Youngblood
Lovelight - Andreas Johnson

Why am i crying - Molly Sanden
Mirakel - Björn Ranelid feat Sara Li

Italy 2012: NINA ZILLI!

Italy returned to Eurovision last year with Raphael Gualazzi and a great 2nd place in Düsseldorf, this year after Sanremo long nights and a never ending final they announced the artist that is going to represent them in Buku in may, who is it? NINA ZILLI, yaaaaaaaaay im sooo happy, she was one of my favorites of Sanremo this year and i really wanted them to select a big artist for eurovision and not a participant of the Giovani competition so i was really surprised and excited when they said her name.

Here is the performance of her Sanremo song "Per sempre"

This is so good, she is classy and i love her.

Now i'll post some of my favorites of Sanremo 2012:


Arisa: My winner!!

Back to Nina!
We dont know yet what song is going to Eurovision, it can be Per sempre, a new song or a song from her new album "L'amore e femmina".
Her album is sooo good so im sure she is going to be on my super favorites and i also think that the juries are going to LOVE her.
My favorite song from her album is a 3min song so can this be her Eurovision song??

If her record company selects this song for Eurovision i think Rai should start thinking about the 2013 contest cause i can see her winning!!! Good luck to Nina Zilli and i hope she get the right song for Eurovision.

New Video: Z Dance - Max Barskih

Max was my favorite on the Ukrainian National final and he came in 2nd place. The video of his entry was released yesterday and here it is, i cant believe how good the Ukrainian videos are, they are incredible. Max go and try to represent Russia like Anastasia in 2009 pleaseee, i really want this song in Eurovision.

Georgia 2012: Anri Jokhadze - I'm a joker

Sorry but there's nothing good to say about this "song".
