One response to “Tonight: Latvia, Spain and Hungary select their entries

  1. Hungary:

    I’m possibly the only one who really doesn’t like “Kedvesem” by ByeAlex. I really hate that song with a passion and even today I still can’t believe that this afwul song reached the top 10 in Malmö. Hungary had 3 very good songs in their superfinal and the televoters chose the worst possible song from the 4. The Hungarian final from this year is also very strong. I’ve got many favorites tonight. Hopefully one of them wins.

    My favorites for tonight:

    – Bogi – We all
    – Dénes Pál – Brave new world
    – Fool Moon – It can’t be over
    – Kállay Saunders – Running
    – New Level Empire – The last one
    – Viktor Király – Running out of time

    “Csak a zene” by Depresszió is clearly the worst song for me. It’s a really terrible song and nothing more than a bunch of noise. The Hungarians will be really depressed when they choose Depresszió as their entry and they fail to qualify to the final in Copenhagen.

    Choose wisely and please don’t disappoint me!

    Good luck Hungary!

    Latvia:

    I must say I’m very pleasantly surprised with the high quality of the songs in the Latvian final. For such a bad participating Eurovision nation, they really have a very strong final this year. I didn’t expect that. I like almost every song with a few exceptions.

    My favorites for tonight:

    – Aarzemnieki – Cake to bake (Such a sweet, fun, catchy and happy song.)
    – Dons – Pēdējā vēstule (Such a beautiful song. It could be this year’s “Kuula” if selected for Eurovision.)
    – Katrīna Bindere – Moment and tomorrow
    – Katrine Lukins – You are the reason
    – Markus Riva – Lights on
    – Niko – Here I am again (Very good and energetic song. Even better than his entry from last year.)
    – Olga & Līgo – Saule riet (Nice song that resembles “Wake me up” by Avicii.)
    – Samanta Tina – Stay (Strong song by a good singer who should’ve represented Latvia last year with the beautiful song “I need a hero” instead of the ridiculous “Here we go” by PeR.)

    “Revelation” by Ralfs Eilands, Valters Pūce & Nelli Bubujanca is such a hideous and appalling song. I really hate it with a passion. This is without a doubt one of the worst songs of this Eurovision season. Hopefully the Latvians are smart enough not to send them to Eurovision. Ralfs Eilands already had his chance at Eurovision and he completely messed up. After all he is partly responsible for one of the three (!) last places for Latvia in a semi-final since 2009! So he must stay as far away from the Eurovisionstage as possible. Don’t make the same mistake as last year Latvia! Therefore opting for “Revelation” equals to choose again for the last place in the semi-final along with those clowns from Iceland!

    Choose wisely and please don’t disappoint me!

    Good luck Latvia!

    Spain:

    What an incredibly strong final in Spain this year! I’m really positively surprised with the high level of the songs. I think all the songs are very good and they all are much better and stronger than “Contigo hasta el final” by ESDM from last year. I can’t decide which song I like best because I love them all. It looks like Spain has a luxeryproblem this year. With each of these songs Spain can get a good result in Copenhagen.

    Good luck Spain!
