A man named Justs will represent Latvia at Eurovision this year with Heartbeat.
It’s a slow and dramatic electropop moment which doesn’t really go anywhere. It’s pretty average.
Now this is a big call, but this is my current favourite to win. Donny Montell’s I’ve Been Waiting For This Night is just a massive pop song that still has the ~Eurovision vibe~ which I think puts it in a very good position for this year’s contest.
I’ve been championing this song since January and I’m very glad it won Lithuania’s selection contest.
I’ll be #TeamLithuania this year.
Ira Losco’s Walk On Water is another brilliant entry. I’m just hearing this for the first time now and I’m shocked I haven’t seen anyone talking about it yet. It’s actually so good.
The drum and bass vibes in the chorus set this apart from the other entries. I’m hoping for top five.
Lidia Isac has provided us with the incredibly generic eurodance track Falling Stars.
She’s at least five years late with this.
Montenegro has sent a band. That is unacceptable and they should be kicked out.
Norway has sent the disjointed Icebreaker by Agnete this year. In the verses, it’s a dance track and in the chorus the tempo changes to become a big-drummed-ballad and that just does not work.
Poland is sending Michał Szpak and his song Color Of Your Life this year. It’s bad and that’s all, really.
Ovidiu Anton’s Moment Of Silence is one of those absurd performances that Eurovision couldn’t exist without. As far as the song goes, it’s forgettable
Sergey Lazarev’s You Are The Only One is one of this year’s favourites to win.
It’s a big and ridiculous production backed up by a fairly enjoyable dance-pop song. It does sound outdated, though.
It really amazes me that things like this continue to come out of such an anti-gay country.
