Horehronie was robbed particularly. Comme Ci, Comme Ca and Vodka were both very good too, as well as Edsilia's entry.

I actually liked the first two Andorran songs the most, the first in particular but both really deserved qualification I thought. Casanova was probably alright for me but it made nothing like as big an impression.
