I think that's it, Cockney by way of Munich.
Poor effort Portugal. I usually like their entries, even voted for last year's one.
Nope, not this year either, Portugal.
reminds me a bit like a Disney song.
Portugal's a bit meh, I can see why they haven't won.
I was expecting a dozen white doves to fly from her outstretched palm...
Oh yeah and France was immense!!!
There are worse ones than Portugal's London-based singer (Andrea Corr of the Corrs crossed with Carrie from SATC) not singing in English.
I find a song less powerful when you can't understand the lyrics..
Again, what's with the singing of ballads in native languages? It will never, ever do well. Hebrew is a really bad language to sing in as well IMHO. Singing in your native language is great if you've got a dance, rock or techno number which people can just move to, but ballads are at least partly about the lyrics and you need to sing it in the most accessible language to get the message across.
What's Israel doing here? GTFO
Israel's guy is pretty cute. I'm gonna vote for him (well, someone has to).
