I usually wait until the week of Eurovision before i put my favourite songs from the contest in my chart. I found 2014 a little disappointing with Calm before the storm being the only entry that really appealed to me, whilst last year i loved Heroes, A million voices and Rhythm inside the most.Tansike wrote:Hey Jake
Glad you like Sergey's debut. Hmm... it depends. For example, i'm following the german pre-selection for some years now, so the german entry uses to make an entry on my charts weeks/months before the contest. Sometimes i also check out a few other entries, like i did with Sweden last year & in 2012, or both entries by Emmelie (well, one of the songs was the theme song not an official entry...). A few more songs will make their debut once the official compilation will get released, and a few more will find their way onto my charts during the contest itself. So Sergey's entry is not that common, and going to #1 is already a VERY good sign for him. I agree that he has big chances to win the whole contest
Also glad to see you love Ariana's debut! Thanks to "Be Alright" i started to get a bit more into "Dangerous Woman" lately, cause it looked like it will tumble down the charts at first...
I usually wait for the compilation to listen to all entries, so i don't know that many other entries. I've heard Sweden, but that one was VERY disappointing, and i've heard Austria/Switzerland which were okay, but nothing outstanding or so, and Belgium, which was awful. Really excited to hear Australia/Iceland though, but as i said, i'm waiting for the compilation now (even if that one is still a month away).
What about you? Already got some faves?
I think Russia are in a very good position to win Eurovision 2016. The song is already one of my favourites, the music video is amazing and Sergey is really sexy!
I've heard a few of the entries already, and snippets of all the others. My absolute favourite so far is Iceland, the staging for their performance is incredible. I'm also loving the songs from Azerbaijan, Australia, Netherlands, Israel, Czech Republic, Malta, Cyprus and of course Russia. I would love to see these countries qualify for the final. My favourite auto qualifier is France. I agree about Sweden, i found their entry a bit disappointing only because it sounds like Catch & release which i already love so much whereas If i were sorry isn't really that catchy.
