Second weekend of February, so ON SEASON is in full swing, which makes for tough choices – dedicate time to every selection, or play catch-up afterwards cause life goes on? And what about simultaneous broadcasts? #firstworldproblems if ever there were some! One thing was for sure: sometimes you get more than you bargained for. AContinue reading “Melodifestivalen 2019 semi 2, Australia Decides, Montevizija 2019 & San Remo: Patience is a virtue.”
Ah, Melodifestivalen. I remember when I was excited for it to begin. Curious to discover what those curious Swedes would come up with next. How times have changed. For MF as well as for me…
Oh, it’s ON season again? Damn time, moving too fast – I’m totally not ready for all the NF drama yet. But okay, let’s have at it then! Starting with France! So the French have decided (ha!) to keep their national final and instead of learning a thing or two and adapting the revived selectionContinue reading “Destination Eurovision 2019: The Crown(ing)”
The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and before diving head first into 2019 it’s time for a look back on fantastic year of music. So much choice, so little time…but I managed to get myself a little list anyway. Here’s what my year in music looked…eum…sounded like.
Rest assured, that title does not function as a slogan for my feelings towards this year’s final. It’s simply a manifestation of pure self awareness. It’s the least I could do after having doubted or even ignored the eventual top three. My crystal ball was clearly on holiday. I can already hear septa Unella andContinue reading “Eurovision 2018 Review – Wronger Than Wrong”
Due to extreme outdoors activities yesterday I totally missed my ‘the day after’ appointment for Semi 2 – let’s make up for that by giving a quick look back and a quick look forward in one go. Cause this is our night, we’ll fly to the top baby – oh sorry, wrong Greek crowd pleaser!
Funny how those weeks between the last entry being chosen and Eurovision itself seem to last forever. Tossing and turning, looking at every entry from every angle… Until that first semi somehow manages to overturn almost everything we were nearly sure about, cause as always reality trumps fiction (pun may or may not be intended).Continue reading “Eurovision 2018 Semi 1 – The Day After”
So we’ve sat through 43 entries and now the time has come to get out our inner medium. Let’s try to predict the outcome of both semis and who’ll come out on top in the Grand Final. Oh crystal ball, crystal ball, save us all, tell me life is beautiful, mirror mirror on the wall…
In the words of Frodo Baggins: IT’S DONE! We’ve come to our own Mount Doom, it’s the end of a 43 entries road. Will the final three manage to make a difference in the final ranking? Let’s find out! Stay tuned for a final round-up tomorrow!
Two semis, 37 entries and only 2 entries that managed to earn 5 stars/hearts. How about (spoiler alert) doubling that in one go? Time for the first batch of Big Five (plus one) and unlike in previous years they actually seem to care #colormeamazed. Happy reading!
