Belgium



Sounds a bit Bond-esque. It's like tineless but also very modern at the sane time. What a unique entry! This will do so well in May!

I love Belgium!

Portugal has decided:



It was the best song of the night (along with Lili's in my opinion). Nice song, i like it but i think it will have the fate of Austria 2015 (it will receive points though)

Filomena was one of the hosts of tonight's final (and one of the ESC hosts) and she was quite good!

I am surprised that they didn't ask Luisa to sing Amar Pelos Dois, i was expecting a video with Salvador's way to Kiev and the victory but nothing...

They could;ve also showed clips from last year's show and the preparation for the show this year, it wouldn't hurt if they had invited artist(s) from other ESC countries....

Anyway, the show took place in an arena which was a nice change for Festival da Cancao.

Don’t know about Belgium. I don’t like it sadly... :(

The Portuguese song sounds like London Grammar, it's good.

See what I mean, it's basically the same but with a more understated production and vocals.

Wasn't sure on Belgium on first listen, but actually it's pretty good, very 1960's, I think it could be another good year for them. Portugal is beyond dull.

It seems that Ukraine will be forced to withdraw.
Today, thw EBu announced that the Ukrainian broadcaster needs to be shut down until April and therefore, it won't be able to broadcast the contest Oo

strange, but the Ukraine NF was hosted by two broadcasters, PBC and STB
So, STB might probably obtain a EBU member status as a solution

Belgium also hired him in 2016, and he also did Douwe Bob that year.
This year he wil also do Waylon's staging

Croatia has a direct competitor in Latvia but the latter is better.

Belgium this year is much better than last year's overhyped entry.

Apparently revamps of Spain and UK are out there. Has anyone heard either of them yet?
