      You don’t like it. Fine. But saying it’s “noise” is a bit disrespectful, to be honest. It’s flamenco. It’s my country’s folklore and it’s beautiful.
      What might be noise for you give chills to millions of people not only in Spain but around the world.

      Really really happy for Blanca Paloma. It was by far the best performance of the night. It’s elegant, it’s modern and folklore at the same time and she’s such a trained singer.
      I guess many people won’t get it in ESC and she’s obviously not going to repeat Chanel’s steps. But I’m really proud of my country’s entry this year, whatever the result.

      • Blanca Paloma was, by far, the best of the night. Vicco, Fusa nocta and Agoney had better songs but they were either terrible vocally and/or had a messy staging (whoever did that Agoney's choreo needs to quit lol it looked so damn chaotic and loose)

          im very used to people describing music I like as just noise too, don’t worry about it. It’s not a personal attack.
          Besides, I also felt the same way about Shum and 1944 when I first heard them and they became two of my favourite entries.

          • Happy Alessandra won!
            Slovenia's entry sounds cool
            Ireland giving U2 vibes, but with weaker vocals.
            Don't like the Spanish entry.

              Lol now that you mentioned it, i noticed it too
              She def needs a different outfit. Something like they did for the musical Six would be cool.

                Yea, that’s a great idea, something royal and yet futuristic, not too dissimilar from this outfit, but a bit less flap available.

                  Don't judge me but I love this
                  She only came 3rd but doing pretty well on the charts after the final, also no dislikes for the performance on Youtube so far this will be the anthem of Spanish ghey clubs this summer for sure

                    I don't get the comparisons with Fulenn, completely different genres/performances.

                    Fulenn was more like Terra (big favouriteTanxugeiras from last year's Benidorm fest who sang in a regional language).

                    EAEA reminds me more of a mix of 1944 and Corpore Sano in the sense that it has the vocals, the ritual-like vibe and the theatrical/artistic performance.

                      Agreed, the fans LOVED it so I was slightly surprised it didn't come 2nd in televoting but then it topped the dermoscopic jury vote! Also, i was hoping it would do better than Agoney in the jury vote.

                      It's the hit from this year's Benidorm fest (last year's hit was Mama).

                      • The Czech entry was announced today:






                        Winner of the online national final they hosted a week ago.

                        It's the first time a Czech Eurovision entry is charting high on Spotify and Apple Music before Eurovision.

                        • Oh yes Czechia! They’ve gone very western in recent years but this is something that could have great cross appeal.

                          • Ollie better win Eesti Laul and Harmonija dissonance Dora or else...

                            • Ah, lots of winners being chosen today.

                              Kinda interesting how Estonia goes with 6:30 as their time though. Don't people eat dinner at that time?

                              • My favourite song in the Danish final:




                                However, I'm also certain Reiley will win:





                                Also, it looks like Marco Mengoni will win SanRemo festival and represent Italy (he said he would go to Eurovision), exactly 10 years after his first participation (Malmo 2013). So, another male singer for Italy in Eurovision



                                I don't think it's worth watching the Maltese final mainly because they will find another (Swedish-penned) song to send to Eurovision.

                                  Estoniaīs one hour ahead of us - so itīs 7:30pm for them when their national final kicks off - they might have already finished at that time and enjoying their desert whilst watching Eesti Laul

                                  • This is the 2nd "biggest" Supersaturday Eurovision fans have ever experienced (the biggest one was back in 2008 when 8 entries got decided on a single night!) but I donīt feel excited at all.

                                    ITALY got a few songs I really like. Marco Mengoniīs song is one of them.. even though heīs arguably got better songs in his discography. Heīs one of the biggest acts in Italy and I appreciate it that there are still a few countries which are eager to send their biggest and most well-established acts to Eurovision.

                                    My favourite entry is this one though:


                                    Heīs taking up on streams and votes, though - who knows... Maneskin, btw, as winners were a surprise as well. They hadnīt even been close to Top 3/Top 5 the other nights before the final... nothing is set in stone right now!

                                    DENMARK is hopeless once again. They come up with a fantastic production and a magnificiant stage but all entries are either dull or mediocre. I donīt think they will advance to the final for a third year in a row. Like greek_boy already pointed out, there are only two songs which might sneak into the final: EYJAA or Reiley should win tonight. I lowkey like the first one whilst Reileyīs song somehow sound contemporary, at least.

                                    ROMANIA is a complete mess. After last yearīs success, I thought of them actually putting an effort into finding another great bop to make Europe dance to but that national final is tragic as hell. It doesnīt matter whoīs going to win tonight. Most songs are either trashy or non-competitive.

                                    CROATIA came up with a few surprises and is the one to watch out for tonight. Itīs a pity that DORA hasnīt been cut to 5 or 10 songs max., though. Iīm praying that Damir Kedzo is not going to win this. His song sounds like a reject from 2013.

                                    MALTA cancelled themselves after disqualifying the one and only competitive entry they had: "Regina" by Aidan. They are left with amateurish, cheap, trashy, chanceless tracks. I like The Buskerīs songs which is quite different to the rest but I donīt think it has chances to perform well at Eurovision. The "huge" favourite Brooke (sheīs definitely going to win) is singing a very dated and cheesy Swedish reject which would not qualify in May 100%! - If she wins, I think she will change her song after winning tonight. Thatīs quite common in Malta, anyway and thus, whatīs the point of torturing yourself by watching this hell of a national final?

                                    LATVIA is another national final without any great songs, imo. Markus Riva is trying it once again and has become really stale. Another horribly trashy song...the only song (and apparently itīs one of the bookiesīfavourite) I truly love is this one:


                                    ESTONIA got a few lovely songs, though - and thatīs the national final Iīm going to watch (and then I will switch to Italy because Sanremo got some classy and competitive songs) - my favourite song, however, is apparently last (bookies, ranks by the competiting acts and just qualified as a wildcard after a mediocre live performance xD).


                                    All in all, even though itīs the 2nd "biggest" Super Saturday" we are about to experience, I donīt feel euphoric or really excited about it.
                                    Iīm pretty sure to rank Romania, Latvia, Denmark inside my bottom 5 for now (or even in May)..depending on whoīs going to win.. and Malta is not really a national final at all.

                                        • Congratulations, Estonia!
                                          Alika slayed and had the most impressive performance tonight.

                                          Ollie would have performed well in May but I really disliked that "mothers who listened to Nickleback in the day" type of rock.

                                          Alikaīs song is more boring but she can clearly make up for it by delivering an impressive, impactful and incredible live performance. She delivered tonight.

                                            • ^ Agree, it's very Nickelback, didn't like it. I do like Bridges though.

                                              Romanian entry is horrible.

                                              Latvian entry sounds nice though
