One of my favourite nights of the year is finally here – EUROVISION! I’m always pretty disappointed that the UK doesn’t take it as seriously as other countries, and I think in a large part that’s why we have very much become the laughing stock of the competition. While I agree that the UK’s entry is much better this year, I’m afraid that they aren’t my top pick – the song is far too bland and generic.
I think we have all come to realise by now that in order to have some level of Eurovision success you need something quirky – there is nothing that Europe does better than quirky! I think that all five of the songs which I’ve shared below have their own little quirks, which is probably why I love them so much – I love a quirk as much as the next Eurovision fanatic! Of course how the song comes across in the promotional material to how it comes across can be totally different – I think that we are in for a really good night of entertainment this year!
To celebrate the occasion I thought I would share with you the top five countries that I’m rooting for this year – don’t forget to let me know in the comments who you are rooting for!
Israel. I really want Israel to win – after first hearing their entry my Dad came through and told me he thought I would really like it and he wasn’t wrong! I have been checking out some of Netta’s other work and I have to say, she’s pretty darn talented.
Do you agree with me? Who are you rooting for this year? Let me know in the comments below!
