are you for real?? We are now only allowed to stick within our own culture? Don't you realise this makes you sound like some crazed far right nutjob?

Good job there weren't zealots like you around when the Beatles experimented with Indian music or the Stones picked up Blues ... let alone Elvis and rock'n'roll.
That said.. Country music in Iceland is just all kinds of wrong.

Anyone remember Oh my Japanese Boy? Think it got to number one but this would have been great at eurovision.

Then again there was that Girl from the Netherlands with Chieftain Headress which had nothing whatsoever to with the song and just made her look daft. IMHO

"My English is perfect" .. Hmm I beg to differ. Well she's guaranteed she'll never represent Bulgaria with that butthurt load of drivel if BNT see that.
So I've been chatting to someone who was on the Bulgarian panel, who reckons if they were paid off, he certainly hasn't got his cheque yet. They also claim that they weren't given any instructions about which way to vote whatsoever, and furthermore they are a little surprised about herself's claims of corruption.

It doesn't mean that it didn't go on out of their earshot, but it also suggests that our lass here is being somewhat more of a sore loser than she'd have you think.

We're getting a rewritten Alcazar MF classic as this week's interval with Clara replacing Andreas in the line-up alongside Tess and Lina.

I thought that Jacques guy sounded familiar. Once rated as Croatia's no.1 homophobe, so that should be interesting.

Now we're talking! Can't wait.

I further discover that she didn't even make the last six…

So the rumours were true, and Jacques for Croatia, I do think we will get Mother 2.0

Melfest snippet rankings

Jasmine
Krista
Robin
FO&O
Bella and Fillipa
Anton
Owe

Slightly dissapointed with FO&O, thought it would be a tad better, given the hype.
I just can't help but think this week is just filler, until one or two better songs next week.

Prediction:

DTF - Jasmine, FO&O
AC - Robin, Anton

After all the hype when the artists were revealed Melfest has been really disappointing so far. Unless something amazing comes along in heat 4 I can see Sweden struggling this year tbh.

It's iconic. Embrace the Bucharest 2018 bandwagon.

I can see it going all the way in the NF Rejects contest if it doesn't!

Tbh, it's embedded in my brain and won't go away. Embracing it might not actually be through choice in the end.

Yodel It gives me shivers and not in a good way. It's just an unholy mess to me. No doubt I'll eventually come round to it, but it's not doing it for me at all at the moment.

Slovenia is on!

Confident about Nika Zorjan sailing through... less confident about Alya though, this first Semi-Final is stacked!!

Evening all.

A very hectic weekend starts here. Looking at the timetable tomorrow is almost as Super Saturday we're going to get, taking into account the number of semi finals going on.
