    This year has some interesting entries. Kate Miller-Heidke is my favorite:


    I love the song, but the whole performance is about the woman in black.

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I'm just so over songs relying on "shock value"
    (or songs that hurt my ears... My god that chorus is so off key you need a crowbar)

    Portugal entry this year is... weird. The song is actually good, but the "coreography" is the biggest WTF this year.
    I don't know how many of you follow actively EV every year, but this year Ukraine will not be part of it because politics. The worst part is that they had chosen a song that everybody was calling their favorite for this year:



    She won the national finals, but the "problem" is that she has a career in Russia, and she was asked to drop all her commitments in Russia in order to participate. She said ok, but then the government said that they didn't want her to represent Ukraine, and they put more demands: the worst of all is that she couldn't give any interview and say anything without the approval of the government of Ukraine. Then she said no, and all the other participant decided to quit too. So, no Ukraine this year. "Siren song" is very good tbh.

    An ongoing direct territorial conflict that cost 10k+ lives is hard to ignore though. The countries are responsibile for sending a candidate of non-political nature, and her entry was controversial from the get-go as she toured Russia almost directly after Crimea was taken.
