Originally Alina Pash was supposed to represent Ukraine this year, but she got disqualified after forging travel documents to Crimea (entering Crimea through Russia is against the law in Ukraine). So the runner-up is now going, this was decided before the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Obviously it is now up in the air if Ukraine can go at all.. I did read something Ukraine recording a live-on-tape so they can still participate if they can't make it in May. Also Russia was disqualified for 1 year by EBU after pressure from several broadcasters. After that Russia announced to leave the EBU so it looks like they won't be participating anymore in the future.

>>190087
Maybe? I feel like the collective shock around Ukraine will have cooled down by time it's May, as cruel as it sounds. If they do win it'll be hard to tell whether it's because of sympathy votes or because they really had the most favoured song, it was already amongst the top favourites for the win before the war happened..

No. 190092

>>190090
Depends on what part of Europe you live in, I guess. I live right by the Russian border and I don't think anyone here is going to let this go for a long time. Just to clarify, I know that Eurovision has always been political and I don't mind an Ukrainian win whether it's genuine or just sympathy votes, I'm just wondering how many of you are betting the same kek

>Depends on what part of Europe you live in, I guess. I live right by the Russian border and I don't think anyone here is going to let this go for a long time
Ah you're right, that was shallow thinking of me, I'm sorry. I'm in the West so I'm more distanced from the situation.

>I don't mind an Ukrainian win

Is it your favourite then? Personally I think it'll definitely get top 5 or top 3 at least. I must say, I don't actually like the song at all.

No. 190113

No need to be sorry. To answer your question, I like the song but I'm not really invested in Eurovision and I don't have any favorites/don't care who wins, so it won't bother me if it ends up being Ukraine. I haven't watched Eurovision in years and I'm actually just now hearing most of these songs for the first time while going through this thread kek. Which one is your fave?

Is this the only fucking weird entry of this year? I hope Norway scores high for having the balls of keeping up the tradition of bizzare Eurovision songs.

I have many and I would spam the thread kek. Verka is a standard classic. The russian grannies, Ireland's dustin the turkey, lithuanian's funky dudes with the disco shorts in 2010, Ukraine's be my valentine, the angel and demon from Azerbaijan's first entry,Germany sending a dude with disco pants with Dita Von Teese, Latvia's pirates etc. The period 2008-2013 was good for weird shit.

Don't really care for the rapping but the parts with the woman are badass. I love her strong voice, it almost sounds like a studio recording. I feel like you often don't get that with EDM because the vocals tend to be processed.

Also, watching this video made me realize how much many entries look almost like music videos on tv nowadays.

I liked these wholesome women a lot…they were great gradnmas in real life too. Everyone especially loved the tiny one. I think there might only one or two of them alive by now. It was so nice and these women always loved to sing and dance. It was very soulful and this performance always reminds me of simpler times for some reason.

The odds have Ukraine winning at like 23% or something ridiculously high like that, but I think we’ll get a more realistic picture once actual rehearsals start. That being said, I could see a lot of ex Soviet countries giving ukraine very high jury and televoting points but like others have said, not sure how this will translate to those not immediately impacted by the current situation/without similar history with Russian aggression

The only sure prediction I can make now is Greece and Cyprus will give each other 12 points

Apparantly the stage was supposed to have this huge ass "sun" with rotating arches that was supposed to rotate in between performances to accomodate to every country's performance but the thing broke and now they're going to leave this gigantic black arch on the stage and it's fucking ugly and it looks ridiculous. You can see how it blocks the visuals behind it. You can bet your ass there's going to be lots of awkward camera angles to try to hide that thing.

Germany gets last place, "12 points for Ukraine" x 10000, Cyprus gives Greece 12 points (obv), Iceland's host tries to be quirky and says jaja dingdong or something, juries' favourite loses the televote by a landslide, Sweden somehow manages to get more points than Norway despite being boring
Those are like the really obvious stuff although this year will be pretty atypical because of the war. I'd include the Romania/Moldova 12 point exchange like >>206005 mentioned but I'm pretty sure they'll vote for Ukraine as they both share borders with it
Off-topic but does anyone know why there's little to no interaction between the hosts and the green room this year?

Besides Eurovision has never been a music competition, or at least it hasnt been in decades. Theres a reason why everyone remembers Lordi, Verka Serduchka, the Russian grandmas etc and its not their musical talent lol. Though imo Ukraines song was also the best (them and Serbia), at least it wasnt some bs we've hurt 7464336 times already.

While I think it’s nice that Ukraine won because of all the horrible things they’re going though, it’s kind of shitty to underestimate the work that the artists put into entering the contest.
Ukraine’s song was really nice, I still think that this eurovision had a bunch of ballads without overly complex choreographies because everyone just kind of knew that it was important to show their support for Ukraine.

see i used to be very opposed to northern cyprus until i actually read up on why the split happened
and whilst invading may not have been the best and morally right idea the greek cypriots were being dicks to the muslims and had thrown aside the powershare agreement so i understand why turkey felt like it was their only option and the uk who were meant to enforce the power share agreement and prevent any issues were shirking their duty
also the new millitary rulers of greece were preparing to annex cyprus following their millitary coup so turkey felt it had no choice but to invade
so it was a shit situation all around

Honestly. Eurovision has never been about the music, it's always been sensationalist first and foremost. Acting like the "actually good song should win" is being salty and it's either a britbong or a spaniard mad that they were "robbed of their victory". Ukraine's song was objectively good though, it's not like they won with trash.

I wish I could blame it on the jury but unfortunately they got at the bottom 3 of televotes. The jury actually gave them higher score than televote. I can only think of two reasons why people didn't like it: it was either the spot they were placed(in the very beginning usually most people haven't started watching) or the people who listened to it for the first time found it cringe and ignored it(I kinda dismissed it for this reason at first but their stage presence and whole vibe made it grow on me and now it's cringe in a happy way like that other anon said.

There is drama over polish representant. Blanka that won the preliminary is chummy with on of jury member's son, is involved with another jury member dance show. Also rules for voting were changed three days before the competition and there was no transparency in how many votes each participant got from televoters. Shitstorm is pretty hilarious tbh also song ( Blanka-Solo) is crap. Also Ochman pretty much side-eyed Blanka while he was giving her ticket to Liverpool and it's slowly becoming a meme in polish internet.

Probably Jann with Gladiator. Also in bookmacher's ranking before the preselection Poland was ranked 6th (while there was a chance that Jann might be our representative) and after Blanka's 'win' it's fallen to 17th place kek
There was also a bit of talk how sound was a bit fucked in performances of other candidates while Blanka's was okay. Eitherway people are salty as fuck and some ESC media outlets are apparently going to investigate this shitshow but it'll probably change nothing.

Nona, i don't follow Eurovision but i've looked into what was going on because I was so impressed by this guy, it's really a shame.
I firstly saw the music video and thought that the song was so cool and interesting, but when I saw the performance he honestly reminded me of Britney Spears lmao, i hope he will get the fame he deserves because he is clearly talented and seems to put a lot of effort into what he does, even if the vocals didn't sound the best there..

No. 280172

Yeah, he's not a bad singer but the song was very forgettable imo. It seemed like the usual ballad about love and fucking that every singer does at some point.
I didn't like Lazza's song that much because I'm not into that singing style (same with Madame), though the base was very good I admit. Mr. Rain had a nice song and I expected him to win. I thought Paola and Chiara's song would get more votes as well since it's catchy and it would have fit nicely into Eurovision.

I liked this song from Germany quite much. Wasn't elected, though, but I like the guys that won as well, so I won't complain. But god, it's not even the semi-finals yet and I am already seething about the jury.

What's the point of having a jury if they refuse to give anything any points that isn't softy-pop? Like always, they elect the exact opposite of what the people want. The three most popular songs (video related was #3) got almost nothing from most of the jury. At least it was satisfying to see how the hipster that the jury pushed so hard got shat on by the people. None of the jury favorites got more than 8-21 points altogether. The winner, Lords of the Lost, got 150 points from the audience. kek.

Totally agree. Eurovision can give a band exposure, but there’s no guarantee it’ll actually help their career. There are so many singers/bands who do well in Eurovision and then you never really hear anything about them afterwards.

Even people who get popular afterwards have other contributing factors. Maneskin blew up in Europe for being hot and charismatic. They blew up around the rest of the world because one of their older songs went viral on tiktok.

The metal thing is generally true as well. Lordi winning definitely made their career outside of Europe, but their extreme costuming played a very big role in their win

No. 280807

>>280570
Random but I have to mention Lordi also went so far as to star in a horror movie called Dark Floors right after their win (won in 06, DF released 08) and while it didn’t get raving reviews, at the time the movie was still making its rounds in europe (and internationally to a smaller degree) and anybody who was either into rock, eurovision or horror had seen it, I would even call it a cult classic within europe from a historical standpoint kekw.

Tinfoil blog but going by how shitty melfest is run from behind the scenes and how they seem to constantly want to take away the power from the people I think they planned for her to win all along.

>The producers choose what songs get to be in melfest. They choose some average/strange ones on purpose to make the good ones they chose more likely to win. That's why the 4 qualifying shows never have more than 2 famous singers/bands so they can ensure only the "good" ones stay in the competition. They'll also also do things like only have one single rock song per year, so it's not even subtle the way they do it.

>Loreen was the very last performance of the last qualifying show. This was to make sure she's on people's minds at the big final, ensuring she gets more votes.
>Loreens number is suspiciously more well-produced than the others. They could amp up every performance if they wanted, they choose not to because they want her to stand out and seem better.
>The producers get to handpick the international jury themselves, they can freely pick people they know will have the desired taste to ensure they give her high points without having to directly bribe them so it seems more genuine (the jury is just one single person from each of the other countries). The jury has 50% of the votes, that's ridculously high but they need it to get the result they planned.
>They made sure to split up the votes in the qualifying shows by age because they know the majority of voters are young, so doing it this way ensures the song that actually gets the most votes in total can't win and ruin it in case young people decide that sending a "bad" meme song would be hilarious one year
>Note that they did not disclose if they still used this age-split system in the final. They just called it "the people's votes". Technically if they wanted to they could look at which of the 2 ways (votes in total or split by age groups) give them their preferred result in real time and just report the one they prefer. Neither one would be "lying".

I don't think it would even be possible for Sweden to send a song like Give that wolf a banana with this current system, the producers wouldn't like it so they've made sure it can't happen.

What happened that made the songs so diverse and good this time? There was a bad drought in the 10s IMO when almost every song was a samey pop ballad, but it got better the last years and now it's fucking perfect.

I also love that they moved on from "serious" and conservative presentations. Music was always about rebellion, passion or fun. This time they seem to go full out.

Just from the short video here I would also say that I like Czechia, Finland, Norway and Moldova the most. Hell I already voted Moldova last time, they have a great taste it seems.

speaking of radio tier songs, uk's entry. i've read people saying that it was chosen on purpose so that they won't rehost again and save money KEK that's probably not true but it made me laugh. well, you never know with normies. we don't have juries this time right?

Their song and performance was objectively good and memorable, their original winner who was disqualified due to some technicality was nowhere near as catchy and universal-sounding as Kalush Orchestra ended up being. But to be fair, Ukraine has always performed really well in Eurovision. They consistently secure spots in the top-10 and top-5, in the 20 years they've been participatng they've won two times and even this year their entry has a very professional quality to it.

Although the lyrics were altered, it was still a political song that was out of place out of the original context and sucked musically. Especially after Ruslana. This performance makes me a bit emotional haha, she's so happy to be there.
I once was at a little vyshyvanka museum where Ruslana apparently wanted to shoot one of her videos and the old lady that museum belonged to didn't allow it because she didn't like that folk dances were called "wild", she was so indignant about that lol

They're cool, I loved them! It's fun watching eurovision this year. Let 3 reminded me of something from the past that I miss, but I struggle to remember what exactly. I feel like there were a lot more bands that didn't take themselves seriously in the 90s and the beginning of 00s. Something like Knorkator? Nothing else comes to mind but there definitely was more

I also liked Serbia and Norway, Moldova was decent, too. Czechia is nice, not a fan of rapping tho. I feel like everyone who made it to final deserved it.

nta but Tone Sekelius, called Thomas before trooning out, a male gay makeup influencer who trooned out and got to the final but got dead last and Loreen won. He's not actually a singer but is a narc so competed this and last year with songs all about himself.

Absolutely pity votes, even though the song was cool it wouldn't at all have been a winning song if it hadn't been from Ukraine and Russia hadn't invaded them. I'm generally cool with it, Europe sent a message of support in a non-political way in their time of need by letting them win and every other country still got to perform and have fun.

I thought the big shadow and the long snake tongue made him look more demonic and rock n roll, as well as breaking out from the box being quite playful and fun while showing he "can't be contained".

I don't speak Finnish but I looked up the lyrics before. I think the fact that it IS Finnish and people don't understand it is helping the song a lot. If it had been English it would have been clear that the lyrics are basically just "generic party song about drinking". Right now (English speaking) people can at least snap up "pina colada" "dance" and get the right idea of what it is about, but it can't really be "ruined" from the lyrics being bad/cringe since they don't understand the words and they can instead focus on and sing along to the "cha cha cha" parts.

I'm a swede so I love and support Finland as a neighbouring country, and I would absolutely want you guys to win with a song in Finnish. In Sweden we do the same thing, we "can't" send a song in Swedish because we think it's not good enough for the rest of Europe, we're not cool and global enough. It just HAS to be English, that's the only valid language because at the end of the day we love sucking up to American culture and are told that's the only right way to do pop culture. I think it's a shame that we're constantly told and feel like our own cultures aren't good enough. Our languages are fucking awesome.

But the song isn't a generic drinking song and that's a big reason to why it had such a grip on the Finnish audience who understood its lyrics and cultural context, I think something got lost in translation. It's about someone who's shy and socially withdrawn, then breaking out of that shell through encouragement and having fun, even if it's just for tonight. Notice how according to the lyrics he "still has a serious face" even after drinking the pina coladas, it's only after he enters the dance floor that he starts loosening up and how "this world isn't making him scared anymore".

It's cool nona. It's just a difference in opinion not a big deal.
Well I was a big fan of the camera work of the national final like how he kicked the wood and he stared from the hole and all those close-ups. I also really liked the boxing ring out of euro pallets, the dancers appearing earlier and him lashing the leashes(idk how to describe it) and the closeups on them and how they danced around him symbolising his insecurities(they did that in the semi too but it didn't feel the same), how they lifted him up , I even liked the dancer's outfits better. I liked the idea of the box but the boxing ring had to be sacrificed for it and tbh, the tongue thing looked kinda silly to me and the fact that there was no pole on the shadow and he was holding nothing on it was kinda awkward looking. In short, I believe the semi had a better direction and told a more coherent story when it came to the lyrics(not that I would know if someone didn't explain but I liked how it flowed. It really made an impact of how I think about the song).

>>295694
Idk about english anons, but as a non-english speaking person who doesn't pay attention to lyrics most of the time, I could care less. I have been watching the contest for a very long time and the first winners I remember were non-english songs. But it was a smart idea of them to add cha cha cha for the international audience to sing to.

I loved Latva as well and was gutted to see it not go through. I think several factors contributed to it not qualifying. First it was a very strong semi with a lot of good songs. Then they were early on in the running order which is statistically bad for voting because people forget you, sandwiched in between two very upbeat, catchy songs so it just kinda got lost in the crowd. It's a song that you need to hear more than once to really appreciate, it's not catchy upon first listen. Then it's also the first year (in recent times) we've had televote-only semis and televote tends to go for the flashiest, catchiest, easiest to consume things (sorry Cha cha cha), jury would've probably saved it. And I saw someone write this and I very much agreed with them: normally in ESC even the weird or out there performances and uncommon genres still have something 'Eurovision' about them, think Georgia 2022 or Finland 2021. Sudden Lights were like the most non-Eurovision entry we've seen in a long time. >>295628 is right, Eurovision is it's own special thing and doesn't accurately reflect how Europeans consume music normally.

I'm fine with it in Finnish, it sounds good and funny. I probably would like it less if I could actually understand the lyrics because I know it's a dumb party song kek. I'm not anti-English though, for something like Aija I was really happy to understand the lyrics because they're beautiful. Capre Diem in Slovenian is awesome. Echo really should've been in Georgian because those lyrics are a literal word salad, so it really depends on the song for me.

Oh god, I saw a couple of months ago a video of some Ukrainian blogger criticizing this song and music video for various reasons, the most triggering being that the crown was never a symbol of sovereignty in Ukraine and is rather perceived as something related to Russian imperialism, and the sisterhood (=panslavism) message, because it's something that's also pushed by Russia. She dissected the video as well, but tbh I didn't really understand some parts of it either, seemed a bit weird and unfinished, I guess. Some people agreed with her, some didn't. I'm a Ukrainian and had no negative thoughts when I first heard the song, I'd say it's pretty touching even. I'm sure no such shit as panslavism was implied and crown is not used in historical context, it's more like a general symbolism. There's a certain trend since the start of war where people would dissect anyone's songs, videos, etc. with anti-war message and some go too far, but I suspect it's either those who live in twitter or people that "need" to make content. I hate it that they speak for all Ukrainians. Honestly there are billions of other reasons to be upset now and they definitely don't include someone's attempts to support us, even if it's not "perfect" from someone's point of view.

Heh, nonnies, why do you hate Ireland so much? It's super mediocre but I'm surprised you have such negative feelings about it

NTA but the irish band are a bunch of twats. They sacked their choreographer after he wrote sane ("troonphobic") comments about male criminals being men and not women.
The front man also threw a tantrum after they didn't make it to the final.

i'm finnish and the lyrics are kinda cringy but honestly, does it matter if it's a generic kinda cringy party song? it's eurovision, it's supposed to be a fun spectacle. people are singing along and having fun, i think that's the whole point, people uniting with music to have some silly fun not everything has to be so serious all the time

Sage for rant, but danish entry artist Reiley is super creepy to me. Im from Denmark myself and he just always had such a weird off vibe. He lied about being 20 when he is actually 25 and soon turning 26, and he doesnt want to talk anything about his past or his family. He also clearly has bought some/alot of his tiktok followers, he has 10million followers on there but his videos get around 50k to 300k views, with one or two reaching a million - nowhere near 10 million follower level famous. Nobody knew who he was before eurovision besides a few koreans because he has desperately tried to become famous there.
Its like he wants to create this perfect kpop-ish persona instead of being himself.
Apparently he also threw a fit and didnt want to talk to any journalists after he didnt go to the final, I guess that hurt his perfect little facade game. Even though the song and performance obviously sucked

you could actually get some meta commentary about this, like how the song is about relaxing and just being brave enough to have fun, so perhaps we all can just lighten up a little and have fun with generic drinking songs.

Yes, i'm 100% because even the hosts mentioned Sweden being able to host together with the Abba 50's anniversary. They probably will that stupid vocaloid shit again and give a concert with them. I'm sure the judges discussed which countries they would vote the most on. See the amount of votes they all gave italy and Israel while the audience did not care. Fucking rigged event.

I know some countries are changing their TV moderators after this year's edition because some are old and out of touch with the show how it is now (the specific example here is Germany). I think they should do the same with the jury, cuz I have the feeling they're absolutely out of touch with what the show is like nowadays. Plus I'm tired of the double standards of "Giving points to the neighbors cuz we besties" but "not giving points to Croatia because they're obviously mocking a political figure who decided to go to war last year in February, and we can't be political". Like, come on guys, you think the public is blind?

I mean I don't have anything against Loreen personally. I just didn't like Euphoria then, I don't like her song this year either, same song structure, she delivered a poor singing performance, the box thing staging is tacky, and I hate the claws she had for nails.
She probably has her fan base from Euphoria last time, just like I am a fan of Moldova /Sunstroke project ever since 2010 and Epic sax guy, but good Lord, if the public is yelling Cha Cha Cha, you know that her song wasn't as appreciated as the Finnish dude whose name I can't spell.

This kind of voting system where juries and not the people have 50% of the power is EXACTLY what Sweden used (and everyone here hates) that made Loreen win locally. An international jury of non-swedes is used to "raise our chances of winning" but it's at the cost of whatever song the people actually vote for, unless they happen to align.

Literally the only country you can't blame for Sweden winning is Sweden, because at no point did we want, choose, or vote for our own song. And we all wanted Finland to win.

Instead they gave mid countries high 9, 10 or sometimes 12 points while countries such as Finland, Norway, Moldova, Croatia who have tons of public vote got 0.

I don't think it was rigged per se, but that they'd make sure to point out things like "wouldn't it be cool if she was the first WOMAN to win twice".
And Loreens performance is frankly the equivalent of oscar winning movies that are highly regarded by critics but the general audience doesn't care that much for. It's technically a very well made artistic performance and the camera shots are powerful and created a unique experience above just "singing on a stage", those are exactly the kinds of things experts want to see. Her song is like an oscar-bait hollywood movie. Her song was also THE most streamed song on many platforms before the final, so despite not getting 12s it was still a VERY popular song.

I am a rufag that knows finnish, and I honestly like the lyrics. But i think that's also all because it fit with the music video (which i adored a lot). Some of his other songs are a lot more cringe than the Euro one if you look at the lyrics, so i will let it pass. The preformance was fun, the song was nice and catchy, and he is a charismatic guy. Shame he lost.

It is!! They have mentioned it right before the final voting, showing ABBA and stuff. I love ABBA myself, but that's a weird conicedence how they decided to send Loreen now. I never liked any of her songs, but i can't lie and say that she didn't do a great job.

I guess it boosts their tourism and pop song culture. My grandma thinks jury votes need to pay tribute to those who financed the whole experience, but I disagree. So many poorer countries are just robbed from the get go because they can't dump money into performances.

You could also see she did not give a single iota of fuck about most of this thing. Jury voting was weird as shit this year. Giving a bunch of lame forgettable ballads a bunch of points and ignoring countries like France or Spain. This was just a disappointing ending, makes me feel doubtful about future installments of ESC. Feel like we'll go back to the 2010s where nearly every song was a well produced English pop/ballad written by Swedish songwriters.

I can't stand watching Loreen's performance and her dumb junkie act. And then contest filled with 25+ boring and generic English ballads made by Swedish producers who pocketed good money from it.

I just realized I don't remember any German Eurovision song except for the last one and watched compilation with all the entries. There were so many songs in German in the past and they would get in top 10 (I don't know what was the voting process back then though).
It's a shame really, I love German language and culture, they could make something truly unique. I'd be happy to see/hear some references to German Romanticism, for example. Something Nina Hagen-inspired would be great. I'd be excited for yodeling, too, kek

I feel like it's the contrary, we try something completely different every year (this year metal, last year a ballad, the year before some funky little fag,…) and it just never works out no matter what. There simply are unpopular countries in Europe with us being at the top while other countries have groups of friends. Singing in German wouldn't help either.

I wouldn't have put you guys last, but Germany wasn't in my top 10 this year with the eccentric competition we had.

Sorry, I'll use your post to go on a tangent:
>There simply are unpopular countries in Europe
I'm pretty sure the recipe is have lots of money + go with something safe. Germany won with Lena, lots of us never won. The war in Yugoslavia gave nobody pity points, and fucking SERBIA won with a shitty balad once. Bulgaria, Bosnia, Macedonia stopped competing because there's no money.

I'm not saying everybody deserves a win, but some can't even compete in the competition fairly while others get a super rich budget, if you look at the 90s - 2005 there were some pretty good eastern european songs, but now it became a mockery here.

I don't believe the tinfoil that Sweden's victory was rigged but is anyone getting really tired that ABBA is getting synonymous with Eurovision? I like ABBAs music but I do think that there has been better disco songs in Eurovision(Dschinghis Khan for example) disco is a really fun genre and ABBA never took advantage of that. it sounds like disco made for people who dislike disco, which sums up the Swedish music industry because everything they make sound so safe and boring.
But every year we need to have a stupid shout-out or segment dedicated to ABBA regardless if Sweden is host or not. I get it they are Eurovision legends but they are the only legends that get so much attention. And there are other non-ABBA Eurovision songs that became famous outside of Europe so why do they only focus on ABBA? I'm honestly sick of hearing about them every Eurovision

Loreen did sing very well, I know nothing of music but she did sound like she was singing really technically well. Tattoo as a song for me is basic and not something I will remember. Compared to Käärijä, she did have the singing technique when Käärijä did sound a bit less good? But I still think that the point shouldn't be to let the most technically talented singer win, there should be other things to take into consideration.

Since Eurovision is a song contest, not a singing contest I must admit I’m sad about the results. I also don’t think previous winners should be allowed to participate.

I don't buy the stupid conspiracy theories, everything falls apart the second you actually look at it. Loreen was the most popular and streamed song long before the final, she had the attention and credibility of having won ESC before. She even got the second most televotes in the final but people still act like she was dead last or something, when in reality people liked the song from the start (for whatever reason, persoanlly not really a fan of the song).

ABBA doesn't give a shit about being part of ESC despite it being their anniversary because most of them aren't part of the music scene anymore and they're not that popular. Sweden had won 6 times before, meaning ANY year ending with the number 1,2,4,5 or 9 (and now 3) will be a big anniversary year of a Swedish ESC winner. Sweden does well almost every year, had the second most total wins, there wasn't any need to bribe jurys in the first place.

People also act like because Finland had the largest voting group of televoters that it means literally everyone voted for them, but in reality the way voting works most people simply didn't vote for Finland. Going by score size about 15-20% voted for Finland, which means 80-85% voted for some other song to win. He absolutely should have won because the jury system is shit and I do not respect their opinions whatsoever, but acting like it's a terrible scandal of bribery is frankly silly.

No. 297303

I'm devastated over Finland losing to Sweden, to be quite honest. We had the chance of a lifetime, a unique song, a charismatic singer everyone was happy to get behind, yet jury fucked us over thirsting for a subpar pop ballad. You could see the hosts getting nervous during the voting results and they knew it was going to be a scandal, I couldn't imagine a more nightmarish scenario, the entire audience chanting the loser's name and song. Nobody wanted Sweden to win. The fallout has been ugly too as the Swedish press is so pressed by Finland not giving any televotes to them while Norway is flinging shit at them non stop. Meanwhile in Finland everyone is celebrating Käärijä as a national hero and he deserves all of it. But a lot of longtime Eurovision fans are talking about boycotting it next year and I think I'll join them. Sweden can have their retarded abba show.

Nobody's acting like Loreen was "dead last". Everyone knows she was popular. But Sweden got 243 televotes while Norway got 216, a very small difference. Norway was also a massive hit with viewers pre-contest and like Finland they barely got jury votes despite the singer being talented, hit her notes and the song wasn't any worse than Tattoo technical- or originality wise. And even if it was, it doesn't justify the abysmal jury score it got. The same goes for France's entry, a big hit beforehand and a talented singer. Loreen was good, but not "every jury should give her 12 points and ditch the rest" good. The jury system is broken and they won't fix it because it's an easy way to manipulate the results in their favour.

>hit with viewers pre-contest
the problem with ESC in a post-internet world is that everyone gets to hear the songs before the actual competition. People get to make statistics and data based on views and streams which leads to conspiracy theories whenever the song that didn't get the most streams wins. The average viewer/voter don't think as Eurovision as a camp festival and the average viewer/voter don't streams the songs pre-competition so that data isn't accurate. I only know one person who hears the songs beforehand and she hears them on Tiktok and refuses to watch the actual competition because she LARPS ADHD

And that's exactly the issue with the jury vote. If they lean heavily towards one country's practices and set preferences no other country has a chance unless they do like what many countries already do and hire a Swedish songwriter. It's not a fair setting in a contest that at least tries to brand itself as a music festival showcasing different European cultures. Almost every winning song in the 2010's had Swedish writers or the Swedish entry made it to the top-3 with jury votes alone. And like said, Loreen was good but not that good. They were supposed to take originality and impression into consideration as well and with Loreen's entry she sure as hell didn't outshine in those categories. If they just want to hear nice vocals then call it the Voice of Europe or something for christ's sake, but even with that criteria countries like Norway and Lithuania should've performed much better. The jury votes make no sense with their discrepancy which makes it seem suspicious and a fixed game.

I've sperged about this before I think, but as a Swede-nona I'm super disappointed with how our national competition is now overruled by an "international jury" giving 50% of the votes just like the big ESC. Since they don't speak Swedish (and to be on the jury to communicate they have to understand English) they're more likely to overlook any songs in our native language and go for the English ones instead. They also don't understand cultural contexts or memes, like why sending a song with jojking in it would be a powerful statement, or why we stan a certain singer/band that to us is a national treasure but they've never heard of them before. If Finland had used the same kind of jury system Käärijä wouldn't have made it to the ESC finals despite it being the people's clear favorite song, and I hate that. I hate it for every country. I'd much rather we never won again but sent songs the people of the country chose for ourselves.

Well I say all this, but last year we were SO close to sending a fat moid in his 50s called Anders Bagge with a super shit song because he kept manipulating everyone into feeling bad for him by saying "boohoo i'm a rich adult man who's constantly on TV but i'm so so sooo insecure, i have nooo confidence at all poor me i'm gonna cryyyy look at poor widdle meee pls giv a little pity vote uwu". There are literal teens sharing the stage with you who have more dignity, get a fucking grip and stop trying to emotionally manipulate everyone.

ayrt i get that the thumbnail is revolting kek but i promise that video is not just about scrotes he used the word "gay" as an umbrella term. despite being a tim ( which surprised me because i assumed it was just a regular man i would have honestly never guessed ) like i said in my post it's not even only limited to homosexuality, give it a try nonnie it's a great video imo i hate to defend anything by trannies but it's seriously one of the best i've seen. i've yet to see that kind of passion and information delivered in videos related eurovision elsewhere that aren't some form of compilation, but if there are any feel free to post them here because i'd love to see!

going to be a normie and say käärijä. and france gall's poupée de cire poupée de son of luxembourg 1965 but obviously i wasn't even an idea when her entry was televised, she was my introduction to eurovision and the 1960s as a decade of interest (and obsession).

It's super embarrassing, but… As a kid, i became JEWDARD fan because of eurovision kek (after their first Lipstick song). Irc their songs from 7(?) years ago about mental health were quite neat and comfy, but from what I know they act obnoxious on social media. Sometimes i wonder if they have any milk other than being hated by Irish people.
As for other artists, i discovered Käärijä and Manizha, she is an awesome woman with amazing mother and is all about womens rights, even did a lot of songs about domestic abuse and how shitty men are (not counting her eurovision performance that had a lot of literature references and made moids cringe because of 'muh submissive russian women should only sing ballads').

it stopped around the 10's but for a long time people associated esc with dramatic love ballads usually sung by female singers and those types of songs has always been popular in the gay community (hence why most gay icons are women known for having a diva image). Also singers that competes want to grap the attention of the viewers which they usually do with lavish gowns (though the gowns has fallen out of fashion in the recent years) and elaborate set pieces which comes of as kinda camp and kitsch sometimes. I don't think many of these songs where written/staged with the intention to appeal to the gay community it was just something that happened along the way and it became a running joke. The camp aesthetic appeals to many straight people too but they don't embrace/celebrate it the same way the gay community does. Now that being gay has become less taboo we see that people are specifically targeting the gay community. But even though we have songs that are intended to be gay songs all the other non-gay songs still appeals to the lgbts because of the reasons I explained above

I agree they should have had more Ukrainian music, but they did have some cool performances in the 2 semi-finals. Swedish Måns hosted the UKs lead up competition to ESC (his gf is a brit) and since he's tied to Sweden they probably brought in more Swedes than necessary via him. With that said I would love if they brought back more non-winners that did well, get the top 5s some more recognition.

i agree, i'm thinking either they'll send in some boring radio safe thing or they'll try to win back some fans with some embarrassing broadcaster chosen "similar" type, like how some nonnas noticed last year that countries sent in rock music after the måneskin win. but tbf they've always been edgy rock songs in eurovision ( in the past two decades anyway )

yep, i can see that happening too, but who knows ! luxembourg has historically been my favorite winning country, but i'm not so sure they'll do well with the current times. i mean you never know…

This isn't baseless, but since Sweden won we will be sending "bad" (but really just mediocre songs) that lower out chance of winning. This will probably last 3 years or so, at least for the next 2 ESC. This happens every time we win because we don't want to spend the money hosting 2 years in a row. The local competition leading up to ESC always has suspiciously mediocre songs the years after we win, but they're always pretending it's totally a coincidence and just personal taste that makes us think so kek they're so transparent. On the other hand IF we send a good song it would most likely be a weird one, like a funny meme-song, that the organisers couldn't predict would do well.

Since we're hosting ESC the money will be put into showcasing our good singers there in the breaks instead, this way it doesn't matter if our competitor is kinda boring and mediocre because Sweden still gets to show our real good music.

If we didn't have an international fucking jury giving 50% of the points we would have sent songs in Swedish a couple of times the last few years, but they keep fucking it up because why would a random australian or croatian give any points to a song in swedish in the swedish final when they don't speak a single word of it themselves?

>baseless random predictions for next year?

I'd like for Finland to do well but I think when a year has passed people will be over this years "scandal" and there's a new favorite to vote for.

I'm hoping the UK will get it together again and send another good song like Sam Ryder, following the local hype after having hosted this year.

Often when Sweden wins another nordic country wins the year after, so Iceland will have their first ever win.

I think if that's the case, then it will be a perfect chance for you to send a song in Swedish. The people who in charge obviously have some kind of bias against the language, (intentional juries from what I hear) so maybe we'll finally get to hear some Swedish.

On one hand, I'm afraid Romania will withdraw too, but on the other hand, maybe it's for the best?

Imo, as a Romanian, the last good entry we sent (until 2022) was 2017 and since then, people and local artists lost more and more interest towards the contest with each passing year and that started gradually since 2014 when Conchita won.
After that, the general attitude here shifted and not in a good way. It also has shown in people who used to watch ESC, in the chaos that is the national selection and how the voting system is a total mess and our better artists stay so far away from this contest.
I watched this year's national selection and I think there was only one entry that was slightly better than D.G.T, the others were forgettable or just… whatever. I didn't even know any of those artists, kek. In short, people here got to the conclusion that no self respecting artist will go to ESC anytime soon, which I find ironic in a way.
The irony is that before the contest, people don't care about it at all and when we get a bad result, they suddenly care about it (or when an entry they don't like is sent).

Not to mention the controversy from 2022, where the Romanian public votes segment was simply cut and the votes were given by the hosts.

i always feel so disheartened when i read about the growing disinterest in the contest which results in representing entries that are less than what the country is actually capable of offering if the circumstances were different. i'm sad about the corruption and lack of interest from TVR too so it's like you said it seems like it would be better for your country to withdraw than to send artists with little to no support.

Yea, that one. We knew it was bs the moment when no jury votes went to Moldova (and the maximum points at that), nor vice versa. Zdob și Zdub are appreciated here, there was no way for our jury to not give them any point (the cancelled jury vote did in fact give 12p to Moldova in the final). Also, the connection excuse was also bs, Italy has expensive and shit internet than Romania kek (if they use internet for that, idk) and the connection was ok from what it seems, at least from TVR side.

Vidrel is the reaction of the lady who was supposed to be live then, I'll add a translated transcript of it.

>>305617
yeah I was wondering what they are gonna cut too. The maximum a song can be is 3 minutes and anything less feels too short. The green room segments where they interview the singers can't be cut either because they are there because some television networks shows commercials during those segments and you can't ask them not to show commercials because that's how they get their funding. They need to give the viewer time to vote to and letting them vote before every country has peformed would be chaotic so that extra time is needed too. They also need extra time to count the votes unless they find a faster way to do it so that can't be cut either. The postcard segments can't be cut either since they are used to set the stage, introduce the artist and song plus it promotes tourism which is the main goal for a host country.
Them cutting the segments with the juries makes most sense.
Tbh I don't think that Eurovision feels too long. A big part of Eurovision is the get-togethers. During any segment that isn't a song I usually chatter with my family. The point segments are more like background noise and we only tune in to cheer/boo if our favourite song does/doesn't get 12 points. But I have always gotten the impression that the live audience gets impatient towards the end so maybe it's more for their sake that the audience that watches it at home

Nonas what are your opinions on letting countries in conflict compete?

To be honest I don't care and think you should just let them compete if they want because none of the competitors are the ones responsible for whatever conflict is going on, they're all just powerless civilians. And ESC is gay as fuck, it's one of the few openly gay friendly massive events that even homophobic countries take part in so to strip that from the gay minority living there seems like a shame. And it also means the people competing are more likely to be gay/not homophobic themselves. No one is going to think "wow Russia's song is so good, that means they're totally innocent and right to invade Ukraine" we all know the war is bad, or you're already on Russias side - it doesn't actually change anything. I don't see it as "pretending everything is fine" I see it as "us civilians want to come together despite the leaders or terrorists being shitheads and forcing us into wars". Maybe I'm just naive idk

Yeah you definitely are. Any song competing has a chance to win. A lot of people don’t want countries like that competing on the off chance that they win because then you’re just pumping millions into their economy the following year. And why should we socially and financially reward countries committing ethnic cleansing and apartheid?

>just let them compete

>none of the competitors are the ones responsible for whatever conflict is going on
Lol no one is stopping any musician from competing. If they want to participate so badly, they can go compete for a different country. Cyprus hasn’t had a Cypriot singer since 2017. San Marino has no restrictions on nationality or language for song submissions. Switzerland gives priority to Swiss entries, but is still open to all nationalities. Just this past year, France was represented by a Canadian. Anyone from anywhere can compete

This staging sucks, right? People in the comments seem to love it, and I just think it looks like a bunch of high school theatre kids were tasked to come up with it. The acting of the dancers is cringe as well. If Norway goes with this I hope they at least make the staging more coherent. The song is so dull as well.

Every few years there's some kind of artist doing a Happy Meal version of what Lordi did in 2006. If you're going to attempt to be different at least go all out weird like Hatari or something, this is just a big yawn.

Why are established bands of relatively niche genres going to eurovision now?

To be fair they're not "going to eurovision", they're just in a local music show leading up to esc IF they win. Plenty of entries do it for the local exposure, not expecting to win at all.
Although I personally think Norway would like to show of a known name because they want to use the current scandinavian/nordic popularity, top 5 last year had three nordic songs (1,2 and 5). Norway and Sweden are close and function the same way so they're well aware Sweden will send a shit song this year to avoid having to host twice in a row. With a top rival out that greatly increases their chances of winning.

No. 352163

Sperg with me nonas! Imagine you're a singer competing for your country in ESC. What type of song would it be, what kind of styling and stage set would you have?

I'd have a generic sounding but good pop song, the lyrics would be comedic-edgy about worshipping a pretend evil-god/demon who brings us pop music (a reference to way back when old people said any fun songs were from the devil lol). The overall aesthetic would be "cute pop queen", bordering on kawaii fashion but less obnoxious, in red tones with demon imagery, such as every dancer wearing little devil horns. The stage would have a demon summoning star/circle on the floor, but made cute, and the big screens on the back would sometimes show a shadow of the demon god with glowing eyes, as if the song itself was summoning him.

No. 352174

lol nonna, i actually thought about this the other day
