Eurovision Song Contest 2021

Post by hopeful traveller » 05 Apr 2021, 20:16

HUGELY looking forward to this after no contest in 2020. There are contingencies in place in case participants get you-know-what and/or are not allowed to travel to Rotterdam.

I'm delighted to say I have no idea who's going to win...! San Marino (feat. Flo Rida!!), Malta, Switzerland all doing well with the bookies. UK better than usual and should be in the top half but I'm not sure it can win outright, there's too many songs similar to it.

Here's how I personally rank them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo1gcYfDMeo

Finland's entry sounds really similar to Linkin Park's early material from around 20 years ago in my opinion!
R15 PB: 2:23.23
DLR PB: 2:00:50
Bottle PB: 02:30:30
Tramlink PB: 1:55.37 (Cheers David!)
Triple Crown: 7:00.13
FNC: 18:42:50 (Cheers Andi and Josh!)
Park: 8:29:35
Z1: 02:45:54
2018 Z1 winner!

I had the misfortune of watching Germany's entry the other day.

Something tells me the message of that particular song hasn't reached you yet...

No, I just think it's a shit song.

Any further questions?

I quite like our entry this year but I don't think there is any way that it will finish in the top half.
It's very radio friendly, but you always have to ask yourself what makes a song stand out and get people to vote for it?
This song will likely be in many peoples top 10-15 songs, but that isn't going to get us any points.
I'm predicting 20th-26th for the UK this year.
http://www.kolumbus.fi/jarpen/ is always a good guide to how songs might place.... UK currently ranked 22nd
One day I shall return!
