Other: Norway. I like the song and it has that x factor that a song needs to be recognizable and radio ready for the European crowd.

I fucking loved Norway's, I reckon he'll be top 7. Along with Ukraine, theirs had a lot of energy in it

Why isn't Australia's song in English? Usually I dislike those that do English songs rather than sticking to their native language, but... Australia speaks English, no?

I think Italy and Ukraine are the best.

Oh and Iceland should get an award for "creepiest video".

Australia's song is fully in English, that's just an Australian accent :)

I'm very skeptical. I know Australian accents, didn't recognise a single word from them as an English word though. Especially ironic when they were followed by Austria who was able to sing in perfect English.

In the past, this wasn't even allowed, you had to sing in the (or a, if there are more than one) native language of the country.

It got removed because as the Eurovision got expanded, English-speaking countries would have gotten a massive and unfair advantage - though up until the 80's, French and German-speaking countries got a big advantage due to this rule.

I dunno, I consider being massively generic and sounding just like everybody else to be a disadvantage, rather than an advantage.



Last night was a bit weaker than Tuesday, but still alright. I loved Portugal, best song so far. Serbia was like one big wave of noise from start to finish. I guess that’s why it was called ‘Hurricane’. I was also afraid their lips would explode. Anyway, Latvia, Poland and Czech Republic sucked. Switzerland wasn’t my thing but I can see why it got through. Finland was doing a Finland which is always nice, and San Marino was decent as well, seeing Flo Rida waving a tiny San Marino flag is pretty funny. Calling a winner is pretty difficult, no clear cut favorite to me, also considering what Italy and France will bring.

I’d say it good that artists can make that choice though; be generic yet universally understandable, or be unique. There’s still artists that sing in their own language. Besides, nobody wants to hear something sung in Dutch, because then you get Sieneke 2010.

I'm scratching my head as to how you can't recongnise any of the words as English. As an Australian, I can understand her very clearly, I think it's a you problem not being able to recongnise her words.
