It's a shame the song is quite weak as her image and personality is so good
I have a feeling that she'll put on a great performance though and with the one direction army behind her, she seems favourite to go through now.
I'm torn between her and Ryan so I'll be happy to see whoever gives the best performance on the night going through

On another note, I think we can officially rule Kasey out of the running. She has only a couple of thousand hits on youtube and is the only act not to release an official video for her song Her whole campaign seems like a half-arsed effort really.
Mairead should be doing a better job of mentoring.
Kasey has a video up in fact, you'll find it on Youtube.

The other three have big promo campaigns going though. Ryan and Aimée have done a lot of radio appearances this week and are doing more today as we speak.

I have no reason to lie.

You wait and see till this girl is our entry

According to our source, this was the only way the BBC could keep her on EastEnders. The actress wanted to leave and concentrate on her singing career.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if this was true ! How awful!

Then why do ESC then? Besides the act has been signed for ages not in discussions as you say
Not according to the BBC twitter yesterday - still finalising what they are doing. It would be the kind of crappy thing the BBC would do

They are still finalising plans which doesn't mean that the act and song hasn't been chosen, they might just be Finalising the promotion strategy, recording a final version of the song or anything.

Best to prepare yourself for this kind of dodgy choice - although i'd always judge it (as last year) on the actual performance. However minimal effort made if this is true.

They said the song was fine for what it was but it's been over hyped.

Do you think they'd say we have everything ready but we're not going to tell you.

They have finished and I bet everything is in place but they have a release day to keep to and that is that. The only thing that may not be done is the video.

EDIT Slovenia live http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjikU...ayer_embedded#!

Hmm dunno yet. However I'd say Slovenia are at the moment most likely to open the semi final

Seriously Sweden? http://www.svt.se/melodifestivalen/r...n-i-skelleftea

Surprised by how good the Slovene entry is although for me it's not a patch on Hannah's earlier attempt to represent Slovenia......the live version is a little shaky....

OFGS! Not yet another pretty boy type with a generic dance banger.

I feel like I'm kicking a beloved pet, but Melfest this year is really not doing it for me.

It's too rinse and repeat this year isn't it?

Posted it on the odds thread. Spiegel think Cascada have a chance as they always have number ones in UK France and Sweden all the time . They expect SM fans to spam the vote the most. They however consider both songs poor. They are still backing Betty quite heavily.

That's going to be horrific on Saturday night.

You missed Elin Petersson's clip out.........this one is intriguing, I like the way it is building.......

Slovenia isn't too bad at all but I'm not really a fan of dubstep.
