Semi Final 1 the entries so far…

February 24, 2008

Semi-Final 1 20th May

 Montenegro, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Poland, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Estonia, the Netherlands, Romania, Moldova, San Marino, Slovenia, Norway, Belgium, Andorra, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia.

So far in Semi- final 1  these countries have chosen their entry:

 Norway

Maria Haukaas Storeng – Hold On Be Strong

A ballad sung in English (because they think that will gain them credibilty and points). It’s a bit too soppy, she sings about not wanting to be lonely and there is someone out there for you. I wish she would say ‘when your lonely you’re lonely, thats life get over it’. Then she may get 12 points. Needs to work on her performance, swaying her hips doesn’t do it. Sounds like a B-side of a Celine Dion CD, just not good.   

Moldova (Anyone know where this country is?)

Geta Burlacu – A Century Of Love

A jazzy song, but sounds a bit too old. Its the kind of song you hear when you are stuck in a lift. Except worse. She can’t reach certain notes in fact I am falling asleep listening. Still, some country with bad hearing will give them 12 points, maybe the EU should invest in free hearing tests for all citizens…  

Poland  

Isis Gee – For Life

Isis is American born and this is actually a beautiful ballad, she sings it well. But she looks like Tori Spelling. She has a nice voice, sometime operatic. I think Poland are desperate to get to the final, this sounds like the end song of a Faith Hill album, not Polish at all.  It’s actually good.

 Ireland

Dustin The TurkeyIrelande Douze Points

AMAZING!!! 

 Irelande douze points
Give us another chance, we’re sorry for riverdance
Sure Flately he’s a yank
And the Danube flows through France
Block voting, shock voting
Give your 12 today
You’re all invited to Dublin Ireland
And we’ll party the Shamrock way
Eastern Europe we love you
Do you like Irish stew?
Or goulash as it is to you?
Shake your feathersListen Bulgaria we love you
Belarus, Georgia, Montenegro,
Moldavia, Albania, Croatia,
Poland, Russia, Ukraine,
Macedonia, Love you Turkey
Hungary, Estonia, Slovakia,
Armenia, Bosnia Herzegovina
And don’t forget the Swiss! 
Whether the Europeans will appreciate this masterpiece remains to be seen… Western Europe fights back!!! 

Romania

Nico & Vlad Mirita – Pe-o Margine De Lume

Yet another ballad, a man and a woman singing to each other, it’s not bad really either. The man looks like he needs to use the toilet (diarrhoea) but their voices are good together. 

Slovenia

Rebeka Dremelj –Vrag Naj Vzame

Hahaha! This is terrible! She’s pretty. Probably get some votes from hormonal boys. 

Bosnia & Herzegovina

Elvir Lakovic Laka – Dzemper

This sounds like a nightmare. If I woke up and heard this song playing at night I would probably jump out of the window!!!

Andorra

Gisela- Casanova

It sounds like we are still in the 1990’s. After one listen I have forgotten it. So must be bad.

Estonia

Kreisiraadio – Leto Svet If aliens landed and saw this entry, they probably would fly away again or exterminate the human race. Three fat man singing, girls in bikinis flying flags. It’s a comedy song. Comedy being that it’s impossible not to laugh AT it and not With it. So bad, so good!

Israel

Boaz Mauda -Ke’ilo Kan

Not a bad acoustic chilled out sound. Sung in both Hebrew and English. He has a nice voice. I can imagine listening to this on a hot day as the sun goes down. It won’t do well because he is Israeli… a shame really. It would’t have won either. It’s just a nice pleasant song.

The Netherlands

Hind- Your Heart Belongs to Me

Boring. Nothing special. Enough said.

Belgium

Ishtar – O Julissi Na Jalini

Hahahahahahahaha!!! What a funny little tune. She has a pretty little voice. It sounds very ‘continental’. I like it because it reminds me of a catfood advert in which the cat is desperate for food and its Flemish owner is cycling around Brussels looking for the perfect meal for her pussy.

Armenia

Sirusho-  Qela Qela

Good song. It’s good a good mix of Persian beats and Western stuff. A remix of this would be HOT!!! Her voice sounds manufactured and its obviously all about the performance with her. The main competition with this song will be from the next act on my list…

Greece

Kalomoira- My Secret Combination

Why this song is performed in English I don’t know, the lyrics are awful. But, I like this song because its a pure pop song. I hope it does well, I enjoy dancing to it in the Greek night clubs.

Azerbaijan

Elnur and Samir- Day after Day

Oh dear Lord!!! You have to see this to believe it. This is the weirdest song I’ve ever heard. Angels and Devils. It sounds like a car exhaust waking you up in the morning. Awful.

Russia

Dima Bilan- Believe

It’s going for an R&B feel. Dima is a big star in Russia. He’s singing in English here. His pronunciation isn’t that good. I do like this song though.

Finland

Teräsbetoni – Missä miehet ratsastaa

Finland trying to repeat Lordi? It’s a bit crazy and VERY funny to watch!!! Not good at all though.
