God loves a tryer or so the saying goes and according to Ireland’s Eurovision former boy band member Brendan Murray, he’s ‘Dying to Try’. I feel as though this however couldn’t be further from the truth. Ireland are of course on paper the most successful Eurovision nation in the Contest’s history, winning seven times, but Sweden are hot on their heels with six and are continually delivering hit after hit at Eurovision, whereas Ireland struggle to reach the final year on year. Ireland’s problem is that they just aren’t trying hard enough, they continually make the same mistakes year after year, have dated songs, delivered by average at best singers and put absolutely no effort into their staging.
Tijana will fly the flag for Serbia in 2017. She will open proceedings in Semi Final 2 later this evening when she performs her Eurovision song ‘In Too Deep’. But will she sink or will she swim? Here’s what I think!
Named after a famous bell tower landmark in Bern, Switzerland’s artist for 2017 is Timebelle. Consisting of a female singer and all male band they will deliver the song ‘Apollo’ in the second semi final. How will they fare?
Semi Final Two seems to be all about the duos. Estonia join the fray with Koit Toome (whose uncle was Prime Minister of Estonia for 2 years) teaming up with Laura for the song ‘Verona’.
