Eurovision 2013 (P)Review – Part 1 – Austria & Estonia

The Easter Bunny has made his rounds and apart from the chocolate I stuffed my face with (my running shoes will become my best friends once more) he also remembered to drop a song for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in each (participating) country’s basket.

Eurovision 2013 – MF semi 4 – Det gör (lite) ont.

“Ow, semi 4 already?” I thought to myself while going all Sheldon and demanding my own spot on the couch, getting ready to follow what has to be the worst live stream since I started following MF in 2004.

Which means their national finals weren’t exactly troubling my schedule in the past coupleContinue reading “Eurovision 2013 – Unser Song für Malmö – Einfach Glorious”

Eurovision 2013 – Norway, Denmark, Finland & Iceland: Scandinavia does not equal Scandinavia

They were fully at it up north, the past couple of weeks, weren’t they? Two weeks of not posting anything on here and suddenly we’ve got 4 Scandinavian entries for Malmö. Time flies, you say? You are not kidding, my friend!

Who pressed the FFWD button? Suddenly it’s fracking January and Eurovision’s on season is back! After quite the crappy second half of 2012 (in my private life, no details necessary), which led to a lack of energy which led to a lacklustre attitude towards my blog, I am now forced to take the glove backContinue reading “Eurovision season 2013 kick-off: MGP semi 1 review”
