    This version is perfect. I hope they don't change anything.

    That Australian thing is just down right unlistenable.

    the problem with Kate Miller-Heidke is that the song tries to be quirky and elaborate, but those shoes are just too big for her to fill

    It's hard to compare ''Zero Gravity'' with a proper pop-opera mix like ''La Voix''

    Yeah just finished catching up on the Australian Preselection earlier... Sheppard and Courtney Act had great catchy choruses, for the more 'unknown' singer's Leea Nanos had a very dance eurovision track, I think though she didnt have the vocal strength to push the big moments though, that could come with more experience and only 16 too, although she had good stage presence. I also loved seeing Ella Hooper (Killing Heidi) and Tania Doko (Bachelor Girl) back on stage.

    Electric Fields were also interesting. Kate's is also similarly on the different side to what we've put forward so far, It'll definitely be interesting to see what it does, will the comparison to Estonia last year affect it's reception (unless she does something completely different with the staging come actual Eurovision) or could it be one of the performances on more of the 'bats**t quirky' side that could become popular We'll have to wait and see.

    Montenegro is bad as usual.
    Italy's song is ok on first listen, but he needs a diferent outfit and better staging. Otherwise i can't see this do well

    "Soldi" is getting nice response, it's a good song, but gets a little bit repetitive towards the end.

    I liked Electric Fields best from Australia's preselection, but not sure how it would have landed at Eurovision.

    Australia's show was a like a Eurovision in itself with so much money plugged into it. It seemed a bit like they were showcasing their ability to host an event like that in the future... maybe Eurovision Asia (should be called Asiavision) is finally going to come to fruition soon??

    I heard the interview he did on a big radio show this morning where he made it clear he's still thinking about it...i was sad to hear that.
    I suspect he's afraid of a backlash, since he's half italian half egyptian...but i'm forcing myself not to think that, as he already showed to have bravery to bring a song like that, in these times, on the Sanremo stage.

    He's getting backlash because the juries constantly overruled the public vote throughout the whole San Remo.
    Mahmood won the Giovani (Young Artists) selection in 2018 (that got him a position at San Remo 2019) despite being only 7th in the televote.
    This year he has also been constantly favoured by the expert jury, whilst at one point being 19th in the televote (first night).
    So the italian social networks are fuming. However, european fans are ecstatic, they like ''Soldi'' a lot.

    Ok I actually quite like Montenegro, some of their solo vocals are a little thin, but when they come together it’s pretty strong and I really like the interesting plinky plonky production. I certainly found it more memorable than France or Italy anyway.

    Il Volo third? Shame, Soldi is a very basic and stupid song just as much as the French one (I don't want to disrespect different opinions, of course). Darude is the man, he's got the chance to be the winner. I'll follow which songs the Romanians will choose, there are some nice tracks in their preselection and I hope Bella Santiago won't be first after all.

    In all honesty, I don't think Darude will bring it, since the first song he has already presented is really early 2010s.

    It's Kobi Marimi for Israel! His song will be revealed on March 10th

    In other news, for the first time ever the country formerly known as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will participate under the new official name North Macedonia​.
