    They've certainly come a long way since 2014. :p:

    For some reason I missed this

    Tbh, I did really like Moustache (guily pleasure) but I definitely agree with you

    Btw, what does everyone think of the new entries picked yesterday (Poland, Hungary, Malta)?

    Poland = :indiff:
    Malta = :yawn:
    Hungary = :love::love::love::love::love:

    Another two solo female artists, the contest is gonna end up like 80% solo female singers at this rate. Hungary's entry is… intersting, though. :p:

    just wondering what you guys thought of Spain's entry? they've got 1K dislikes on youtube 🤔apparently his entry is a scandal and was chosen unfairly?

    tbh I didn't find it very interesting myself

    I'm liking Germany's and Belarus's sogn choices

    Yeah, basically the voting was 50-50 televoting and jury, and after the results there was a tie between Manel and Mirela (fan favourite). People are angry because the jury decided the winner instead of televoting (Mirela would have won in this case), and 2/3 went for Manel hence he won. Also one of jury members was plugging his song on radio and therefore it was unfair

    Tbh, I didn't rate either entry, my favourite came 3rd Anyway, the song starts off promising and then it goes downhill, repetitive and yeah not a fan.....

    She'd get 12 from me.



    12 strokes, that's all it'd take.

    I'll be so disappointed if we don't get at least top 10 this year. Maybe even top 5? :awesome:

    ikr - I'm quite excited about it this year since she was pretty good live
    I'm hoping with her x factor background she'll have some idea about good/bad stage setup which I think is what we need now to be good
    I was a little disappointed in Sweden's sntry this year also

    In no particular order - UK, Germany, Switzerland, Belarus, Italy, Denmark, and Austria

    For some reason Belaruses song reminds me of 1D - appears to have the same title too as one of their songs
    The girl singing for Denmark sounds AMAZING

    I haven't watched all of the music videos yet though, but a few of them I just can't sit through because I'm really not keen on some
    I'll probably write a list out when i've seen them

    all of the entries are released now (saw it on facebook, UK seems to be in a few peoples favourite lists which seems to be a good sign so far

    Ah interesting I agree with the last 4

    Really? Yeah the title is, but I dont think 1D did folk music
    OMG Yes, totally agree with Denmark, she is amazing live :love:

    Ooh I already made my top 43, although it will probably change once I've listened to the newer ones more

    Yep, the whole situation is a mess...........

    Its really stupid that politics plays a huge part in Eurovision these days, but tbh it seems that Russia are deliberately trying to stir up trouble. :dontknow: Feel sorry for the singer tho, she doesn't deserve all of this

    so much for "celebrating diversity" ( three male presenters too)
    politics isn't meant to be there but this obviously shows it still exists - like you just said
    I wonder if they will let her in the country at the last minute...the eurovision broadcasting thing said they're trying to cooperate/work with ukraine on it (something ike that)
