    I'm curious to hear Madonna's new single. A part of me hopes she returns with a big singalong party anthem style track.

    On a separate note the after effects of Fuego are still strong (quite rightly too ) i just discovered this mashup on YouTube and i'm loving it. <3

    The running order is just really important when it comes to the Grand Final, I think. Of course, results can slightly be "affected" but it doesn't really matter. Apart from one year, I think that the ratio has always been 5 to 5 qualifiers (first half/second half) when it comes to the semi finals... thus, I wouldn't be worried about Luca Hänni not making it. Switzerland really has a strong entry due to being so current, contemporary, charming, catchy and instant. Actually, having to perform between Latvia and Moldova is quite fortunate, I assume.

    However, I don't get them letting perform Russia/Albania ("too" screamy entries) next to each other as well as Slovenia/Czech Republic because both sound very current, modern, indie pop-esque.

    The official compilation got released on iTunes today!

    A pity I couldn't resist (I already bought my favourites [22 songs] on iTunes 2 wks ago)... I guess, unlike recent years, I will just wait for the physical copy to be released in two weeks time.

    The compilation includes the studio versions of Georgia, Malta (previously unreleased) as well as the cut Eurovision edits of Azerbaijan, Italy and the new version of Lithuania.

    Some think charming, some think "try-hard". there's nothing really "dirty" about it and if the rehearsals show that Luca isn't there vocally, it might end up being this year's "Dance Alone" (at one point it was top 10 in the odds)

    Is this the thread we start guessing the qualifiers and when is the time? I am very excited about this year. It is very unique, even though i did not like many songs, the ones that i did were very good. I feel like it is out of eurovision world.. until i hear norway which is the definition of eurovision

    Some top Eurovision stars will switch their songs and perform their own version of another country's Eurovision hits:

    Conchita will sing Måns Zelmerlöw's Heroes
    Måns Zelmerlöw will sing Eleni Foureira’s Fuego
    Eleni Foureira will sing Verka Serduchka’s Dancing Lasha Tumbai
    Verka Serduchka will sing Netta's Toy.
    All four will be joined on stage by Eurovision 1979 winner Gali Atari and perform Hallelujah together.
    + Gal Gadot will be involved in the Grand final.

    Madonna, Gal Gadot, Bar Refaeli, Israel definitely isn't playing this year

    Måns is definitely dressing up in a bodysuit and doing the choreo in high heels.

    ^ Nah, I need my Måns shirtless

    Verka doing "Toy" fits so well. And YES at Conchita performing. Eleni performing is also interesting. I know it's been just a year but that still very special for a contest to let the second placed from a year perform later on (and getting the song performed by someone else). She's probably last years Verka Serduchka.

    Also love how Gal will make an appearance.

    This is already shaping up to be a great contest.
    I just need to find a good way to watch this as most TV stations don't air the show between the performances and the votings over here.

    Meh. How many times do I have to see Verka in Eurovision? The song and the whole act have been utterly annoying back in 2007 and it hasn't changed since then.

    What's "Spy"?

    Songs like Vera's entry are part of the reason why people don't take the song contest seriously; especially in terms like music quality - even though it has become a completely different story since the introduction of the semi finals and we seriously have had so many great, innovate and memorable tracks of high quality (Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands, Albania, Slovenia, Austria, Italy this year alone) and it takes one Verka to haunt us forever

    Hahaha don’t be a spoilt sport I love Verka

    Yes a lot don’t take ESC seriously but I think a lot of people do watch in hope of seeing some Verka-like craziness.

    A pretty funny movie with stars like Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Allison Janney and Jude Law.

    Truth told and I'm totally fine with having a few fun entries but I just don't get Verka at all. His latest involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest was simply embarrassing. It didn't even qualify as an interval act. I would like to see some new faces or at least, someone I can take serious.

    I have never really liked that entry and I am more into tracks showcasing culture or some quality when it comes to Eurovision.

    Wowow! I see some great news here! I am curious to see how the acts are going to dress up. I wanna see Mans in high heels with a long wig like Eleni's. And of course verka with meatball buns on her head in a sliver glittery kimono.

    So Apple Music has all entries on a playlist now, so I decided to finally hear them all after knowing only around 4-5 entries so far. I'm currently on my sixth song and wow, the level seems very high this year!

    Oh wow, the Czech Republic entry is so weak. What a disappointment after last years success. Germany is also shockingly weak!

    ^ Germany being weak isnt shocking though, they havent delivered the last years. Though the artists are likeable in their interviews!
