We continue to assess the Azerbaijani entries from the Eurovision back catalogues, this time looking at their live performances when they took part in the competition. For this we will take into account their ability to sing live, their stage presence, their chemistry with the audience and the staging of the song. Which of the eight acts will receive the highly sought after douze points and who will go home pointless. Read on to find out how each act fared and how this round of points impacts the overall scores. Remember you can vote in our poll to give your favourite act an extra boost.
In Eurovision, in this day and age it isn’t enough just to have a good song. Fans expect so much from their Eurovision entrants and want to be entertained from start to finish. One major development in recent years is that of the accompanying music video and it is this feature that is the second criteria that we will look at in our judgement of the eight Azerbaijani entries.
Lithuania have unveiled the official video to accompany their song for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Duo Vaidas Baumila and Monika Linkyte were chosen as the Lithuanian entry in February and their song ‘This Time’ will compete in the second semi final on May 21st in Vienna. In the meantime you can enjoy their official video and let us know your thoughts.
We can’t think of a more fitting way to wrap up our day dedicated to pop royalty Abba than by thanking them for the music with their song “Thank You for the Music. We would also like to thank you all for joining us throughout the day.
Don’t forget, if Abba’s “Waterloo” is your favourite Eurovision song ever, you can vote for it in our poll.
Benny and bjorn’s music and lyrics are one of the many reasons we love Abba so much. Take for instance the Abba Gold lyrics from “Dancing Queen”: “You are the dancing queen, young and sweet only seventeen, dancing queen feel the beat from the tambourine oh yeah!” Epic. Listen to the whole song here.
As we take a look back on Abba’s long career, we decided to have a look at an interview with Noel Edmunds when the band celebrated their ten year anniversary. Have a look at what they have to say.
