It’s May. Eurovision time.
It’s tradition in our household to sit down on Eurovision finals night and score our own winners. Come 23 May, that’s what we’ll be doing, hoping that we haven’t heard the results beforehand because Australia normally has a delayed telecast.
This year Australia has a contestant. I’m not sure how we managed that. We’re on the other side of the world. But … we’ll judge Guy on the same criteria as we’ll judge the other contestants and see how we go.
Personally, I’m a sucker for power ballads. Give me a song that ends strongly and I’ll vote it high every time. I don’t often pick the winner.
Like most songs, your opinion of them changes the more you hear them. I generally like the winner better second time around.
There are some strong songs this year, and I haven’t heard all the participants yet. My power ballad picks so far are Russia and Greece.
Gut feel, Estonia will go close to winning.
