Splendida Stupida is one of my favourites i've sent - was pretty overlooked i think
Yeah, I thought it would be at least top 5 in the final when I first heard it.

Thanks Alexos, Are you ok with recaps or will you need me or Dylan to help? Also had Gwen done some recaps for the first few countries, I know she'd done the Aland Islands?

Yeah, I might need a hand with the recaps if you guys wouldn't mind. My Windows Movie Maker tends to crash whenever I try and save a project

I probably won't be able to open A-E until Sunday evening due to work, but it won't be too late.

If we don't vote in every other country, we're disqualified right?

Lebanon are lucky they have such an enormous diaspora. When was the last time they were actually represented by someone Lebanese?

That's cool. I'll do R-Z and close it on the 28th then. I can't see people voting in time for the 27th. I'll try and do some recaps for them too


I'll do a few of them so

Do we have any done for Aland Islands-England yet? Just thinking that's opening on Sunday. I'm not sure if Gwen has done a few at the top, so maybe if Cuishla or someone could start at England and work upwards?

Thanks AxG and Cuishla.


Thought I'd start off some reviews:

Estonia - It's not a bad selection, I don't really dislike any of the four. I know Kerli gets selected a lot but sometimes there's a reason for that, Zero Gravity is definitely the pick of the four for me.

Faroe Islands - I honesty never saw Electric Lady Lab as a potential winner at the time, but listening to it back it's a lot better than I gave it credit for. Between that and Bryan Rice for me, Aura Dione's ok but not a classic for her. A bit disappointed that the other Bryan Rice song and the Dreams song from Jurmala didn't qualify.

Finland - Hyperventilating's another one that I couldn't totally decide how much I liked at the time, I think I did give it points but possibly not big points in the final. I do love it now though. Really like Hanna Pakarinen and the second Jannika B song too. Strong year for Finland.

France - I think this is quite a poor selection for a country like France, some of their best songs have represented other countries this year. Marie-Mai is the best of the four for me.

Germany - I loved Closer by Mandy Capristo, Glasperlenspiel wasn't bad too. A pity that Unheilig didn't qualify, although at least we're spared Nica & Joe...

I thought Finland had the best NF of the lot last year...

Music Everywhere, Missa Muruseni On, Livin' In A World Without You, Sama Nainen, En Haluu Kuolla Tänä Yönä

I think all 5 of those are better than the 5 this year.

That Bryan Rice song is really bad, the other one he had was better.
