    It seems like this year will be full of girls singing ballads. Not sure who could be the winner yet.

    My favorite candidate so far is the guy from Montenegro. This is not the song he'll perform, but if he makes something like this on stage it's gonna be AWESOME.

    Somehow, this thing won San Remo, and this year will be Italy's entrance.
    The song sucks but I have very conflicted feelings about the gorilla.

    ahahah. Loreen didn't make it through Andra Chansen. The wank over it is hilarious to me, but I've had 4 very large sangrias.

    Loreen's song wasn't good and wasn't Eurovision. Literally any song in Heal would be a better entry.

    ^wow, that song is hideous. The guitar is very Husband.

    I'm surprised I still haven't listened to a song and think "yesssssss, this can the winner". I think the last time that that happened when was Running Scared (ugh, that song is AWFUL) won.

    Ummm...

    Statements is literally Jamala's shitty song re-incarnated, with some Sia elements added in the performance. It's never smart to send a soundalike of last year's winner (remember when Germany tried that the year after Loreen won?) but to say that Statements "wasn't Eurovision" makes no sense. Loreen should have at least made it to the finals. Not some pubescent little boy who thinks he's re-enacting George Michael's Faith video. End of.

    In the absence of Loreen (who REALLY got robbed) I hope Robin Bengtsson will win, and not stupid Wiktoria with her faux-country song, or one of those songs that didn't bother to write a proper chorus (Mariette, Nano). I hope it's not Lisa Ajax who has all the charisma of an uncooked TV dinner. And I wish all the best to Jon Henrik Fjällgren, but his previous song was better and he doesn't need to bring Kesha's filthier sister. I also can't handle the blonde guy from FO&O and I feel sad for his very very gay bandmate who has to sing about being in love with a girl. Oh and I fucking hate Ace Wilder and I hope she comes in second again so we can see her get all disappointed and surprised for not winning again.

    I've been checking out this year's entries and there are a LOT of ballads and dramatic songs. Any country that hasn't chosen its entry yet should consider sending something fun and upbeat.

    /end of rant

    If you want fun and upbeat, check Moldova's entry.
    It's so fun and upbeat I can't listen to it again.

    To my ear Statements sounds like Alanis' Version of Violence with an additional layer of tortured wailing. I wouldn't normally associate that sound with an entry from Sweden, but what do I know.
    The Jamala song is complete trash, so we can agree on that.

    Sorry, I'm just very very grumpy that Loreen didn't even make it to the finals and so much trash ended up in the finals

    As usual, the NL is doomed.
