Just like every year, I do my very own review of the Eurovision Songcontest, which was held in Baku, Azerbaijan, this year.

Also, I did something very special this year. I went to a public viewing of the show. I had some friends visiting from Finland and we all went to that Eurovision party together which was hosted by a lovely and pretty funny drag queen. I took notes during the show and as I just found them again, I decided to finally share my (belated) opinions of the performances(click on the name of country to open the songs on YouTube).

Let’s get the party/euphoria started 😉

01. England: Last year, Blue represented England. This year they sent their grandfather. It was kinda like Tom Jones meets Johnny Cash. In a bad way.

02. Hungary: The song was called “Sound of Our Hearts”. My heart burped during this performance.

03. Albania: Kinda reminded me of MirandaSings and the evil Queen of Snow White 😉 Thank God there were no fancy glasses on our table. She would have shattered them with her voice!

04. Lithuania: I surprisingly liked the song after he took off his bling-bling scarf.

05. Bosnia Herzogovina: I was desperately waiting for a “Lady Gaga moment” to happen. I am still waiting.

06. Russia: Awesomeness! Those grandmas were sooo cute! I was hoping they all took their medications! One of my faves of the night!

07. Iceland: Nightwish gone Iceland and blonde.

08. Cyprus: ♫♪♫ Lalalalala ♫♪♫ That’s also a good to work out to.

09. France: 10 points for the topless dancer. 3 points for the singer.

10. Italy: This is what Amy WInehouse would have looked like when she used a comb and Posh Spice was her best friend.

11. Estonia: Reminded me of the last song they always play to get rid of the last people in the club.

12. Norway: Adam Lambert meets Abercrombie & Fitch model.

13. Azerbaijan: Very nice voice and I loved the dress and all of the effects.

14. Romania: The moonwalking bagpipe player is awesome!

15. Denmark: Avril Lavigne meets Sheryl Crow. This is a good song to listen to when you are road-tripping.

16. Greece: Apparently, this wannabe Shakira was in a hurry and forgot to put on a skirt, huh?

17. Sweden: Another one of my faves! I expected some awesome dance moves but they only sent a ninja up on stage.

18. Turkey: Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. The dancers in the background looked like bats trying to fly.

19. Spain: She can sing but that does not change the fact that I yawned like 7 times during this song. True story.

20. Germany: I loved it! We were literally dancing on the tables and cheering! Besides, I think the guy is cute(ish)

21. Malta: This song puts me in a good mood. We were still dancing on tables from the song before.

22. F.Y.R. Macedonia: Well…That is all. The only thing that excited me was the electric violin in the back.

23. Ireland: Jedward, here we go again. I think last year’s drugs were still working 😉 Last year’s song was better as well.

24. Serbia: ZzzzZzzz…This is when I ordered more wine.

25. Ukraine: The outfit of the dancers distracted me from the actual song. Not in a good way.

26. Moldova: This song makes me wanna dance….a very stupid dance though.

I am glad that one of my top three won this year’s contest: Sweden!! I really like the song and I am happy that next year’s Eurovision will be in Stockholm, Sweden! Let’s see, maybe I’ll even report live from the arena next time 😉

Taaa!
