I can't stop listening to the sing-along Framling from Saturday night.

I hope they do something similar in May.

We could have had Bonnie in 1983 but she turned it down, Apologise for the paper but thought it was a good article actually

Iceland's video will premiere tomorrow around noon. It will be interesting to see if they've revamped the song, and more especially, if it has been translated into English.......
I hope it's in Icelandic..

Thanks for the link- nice article and Bonnie seems lovely, and I found it refreshing she was honest about what she thought of Love Will Set You Free last year.

Really think we can go top 10 this year.

Seems the BBC are taking it quite seriously- having her styled by Julien McDonald for the big night.

I'd advise against reading the comments section, though. As expected it seems to be made up of a cross between die hard supporters of the BNP and the cast of Fraggle Rock.

The video for France

http://www.france3.fr/emissions/euro...ourgeois_36947

The snippet I heard the other day really got my hopes up, but the full song hasn't lived up to them so far. I have a feeling this is a slow burner which won't do them any favours in May unfortunately.
I think the song (and video) is excellent, and is the type of thing I was hoping Paloma might have sung if she got picked.

I was surprised they didn't call Sweet Dreams a flop really they usually do unless they win.

hope they don't just forget about her iconic love of leather though and have some included in her outfit for nostalgia purposes

Believe In Me is on iTunes to download

Unconfirmed reports that the Italian song is titled "La Vita Non Ascolta"

Oh I do like that Greek song very much, and the creepiness of Agathonas in the video too. Really think this will do quite well this year which of course probably means that it won't.

Apparently, Italy's song will either be L'essenziale or Bellissimo. One of the two from SanRemo

"SRF have revealed on their facebook page that the new name will be Takasa, and that the outfits, which will also be changed, will now be white shirts and dark pants."

"The name comes from the Swahili word meaning “purify”. "

I...see.

Takasa sounds like a software manufacturer.

Here they are on the road to Malmo....

When did David Beckham join the Sally Army?

I don't think they've really thought about what they've written below the vid......"Sarah, Christoph, Kathi, Emil, Michel and Jonas heading to win 12 points for Switzerland"

Does Emil have any idea what's going on most of the time?

Takasa? Sounds like a curry flavour. Or an indigenous language in Africa or SE Asia

Bellissimo would be a change from the ballads we are being inundated with, but I much prefer L'essenziale as a song.

Seems we will know both the singer AND the song for Malmo by the end of the Azeri NF tonight according to ESCKaz.

Well they're all singing their own original songs, so they probably wouldn't have time to actually change it between now and the deadline.
