Denmark’s choice for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is boy band Anti Social Media. Anyone who knows me knows I love a boy band – this one however is not one that I am particularly emphatic about. There were many other better boy bands that weren’t picked to represent their country at Eurovision this year. Ones that immediately come to mind include Hungary’s Spoon, Finland’s Satin Circus and even Australian boy band JTR who competed in Melodifestivalen to be Sweden’s entry.
…and the award for bad grammar in a Eurovision song title 2015 goes to…Hungary! Yes, let’s get this out of the way first and foremost. Surely there should be an apostrophe in the ‘Wars’ in the title of the song? Surely it means war is for nothing? Or even if it is wars plural then it should be ‘Wars are for nothing’? I don’t know.
This week really has been hectic with 5 national selections having been made last weekend. Not only that but other countries who had picked their finalists also revealed their songs, Melodifestivalen staged its fourth and final heat and the rumour mill has been working over time since the UK and Australia announced their national selection reveal dates. As always we are here to keep you up to date so below are the 15 most important things that happened this week.
Hungary’s A DAL competition concluded tonight with Boggie coming out on top as the Hungarian choice for Eurovision 2015 with their song ‘Wars for Nothing’. The female singer’s anti-war song beat boy band Spoon’s ‘Keep Marching On’ in the final two.
