If I’ve learnt anything from watching Eurovision it’s this: expect the unexpected. In 2006 against all odds, Finnish heavy metal rockers Lordi, prosthetic masks and all, were crowned winners with their rock anthem “Hard Rock Hallelujah!’ Let’s remind ourselves of that moment:
Germany’s Eurovision selection process is interesting as it is not just about the artist nor is it just about the song but equal focus is given to both. Each act in the national final selects two original songs and the public vote for which is their favourite. Germany in the end opted to go for Elaiza but ‘Is It Right?’ Or is there another song that you preferred? We take a look at which songs just missed out on taking to the stage at Copenhagen.
It’s that time of the week again where we take a look at the least and most viewed videos on YouTube. At the top end Aram MP3 still dominates with over 2 million views, while Austria’s Conchita Wurst is catching with also over 2 million hits. Azerbaijan’s ‘Start a Fire’ is now in third and Greece is fourth as both entries hit the 1 million mark. Sanna Nielsen rounds up the top ten, falling three places with ‘Undo’.
It’s time to take a look at the hosts for this year’s Eurovision song contest ahead of tomorrow’s first semi final. The semi finals and the grand final on saturday 10th May will be hosted by not one, not two, but three people.
