I still don't get what difference it makes when they reveal the song, as long as it gets done before the official deadline. The people who vote on the night won't know or care when the song was announced, and it it's a good song, it'll do well regardless of whether it was revealled on March 18 or December 18...

Besides, as Switzerland keep proving, it's not like going first and touring the song everywhere gives you any advantage!
This, it does not matter. The annoying thing is the social media don't say anything we have to rely on Scott and Graham. That's the thing that annoys me.

Are Sweden going to put the same first song on every semi? That's 3 of the 4 now
I still don't like Skyline at all, Alibi is way better IMO. I don't think being in the same semi as Janet will do him any favours though, I think the hype around Heartstrings was totally justified tbh. She'll be challenging for the win come the final.

And to answer your question, Army of Lovers are on first next week

The 3rd song sounds really Irish to me.

Yeah its not as bad as when I first heard the teaser in the week, could be a shock qualifier.

Actually Jade did markedly better in countries she had visited prior to the contest. Announcing our act in March isn't giving us the chance to do a national final tour.

I agree, Alibi is a bit different whereas Skyline is generic tosh. If Shout It Out couldn't come close last year (and that was a lot better) then Skyline shouldn't be in the running this year.

Those tours mean nothing compared to a decade ago. Jade was always going to do well due to the ALW label.

More than she deserved, she did massively overperform for my money in the jury vote though. I'm sure if you compared the countries she visited and the countries where the juries managed to give her points you'd see some correlation.

Have to say alibi much better than skyline. Although from listening to the clips:

Final please: Janet Leon, state of play
Second chance and never will win: Amanda fondell Eddie

Heartstrings is really good. There must be some reason it's not getting good reviews though.

I think it's telling that Heilsarmee have only shown up in Malta so far and that's the only time an act has turned up at another NF.

Heartstrings is too jarring for me and she's going to look stupid in that catsuit.

Have the Scandis been playing each other's songs at their NFs? Maybe there's been a crackdown.

Apparently she's been having throat problems and had to whisper her way through the press conference yesterday. I'm slightly worried about that big note, I have to say.

F.
Isn't that she is for a) keep cocking up the dance routine and b) she's not sounding good during rehearsals?

If its glittery she will end up looking like Marie Serneholt from last year, that was a terrible choice of outfit for her.

I don't understand the outrage behind the late announcement date erm announcement lol

Engelbert was announced on 1st March with the song being revealed on 19th March, they are just following the same reveal. The same way Switzerland announce so early we just have to get get used to announcing so late
