  1. Going more systematically through the songs now. It won’t be easy to vote…

    If I should point out a trend in this edition, it would probably be indie.


  2. But when the UK finally get to deliver their votes, they will be read by no less than two spokespersons.

    The first spokesperson is one of my favourite producers and musicians: Brian Eno

  3. YES!!!! I am so happy,I need to share this!
    Just bought my “7 day pass” ticket for Europe’s best music festival #Sziget 🙂

    I am so excited!The line up is shaping up great❤️Can’t wait till August 😊

  4. I have now listened again to all 29 songs available and ranked them for the first time. On a first observation, there are songs that despite scoring a 9/12(!!!), they will miss my top10 😦


  5. Just to say…Iceland has sent its entry song and hopefully it will be available with the next update. Female, young, indie (appears to be the theme of this edition!) and she writes her own songs! Good luck everyone!

  6. I’ve listened to most of the songs so far. Usually at this point I have a few songs that I’m sure won’t make my Top 10, but this time, I… kinda like them all (so far)?


  7. I have received Ellie’s entry, as a confirmation.

    I have not heard from Max, and Jon has expressed interest but has not decided his entry yet. I have sent an email to Max to find out what’s going on. If I don’t hear from him by the time I get back from what I have to do tomorrow morning (Central Time), I will dq Max. I have given Jon until that time to send his entry.

    That’s the news. I’ll upload a comment with the running order draw with Max and Jon included in a short bit. If they do not join, I will remove them from the running order.


  8. And here is the running order:

    1. Netherlands: Stommie
    2. Israel: Dimitris
    3. China: Jon
    4. Canada: Luke
    5. France: Tecku
    6. United Kingdom: Anders
    7. Indonesia: Bay
    8. Ireland: Razvan
    9. Greece: Alex L.
    10. Australia: Donnie
    11. Sweden: Gregor
    12. Kazakhstan: Mermaid
    13. Ukraine: Matt
    14. Mexico: Andy
    15. Germany: Ren
    16. New Zealand: Ovidarch
    17. South Korea: Max
    18. Estonia: Sedapsi

    • Damn. We will close the show. Many people will already prepare for voting, search their phones etc. while Poland is on … 😉


  9. After listening to all songs today, I must say 7 songs stand out – IMO always. Some other are unique as well but I am not sure whether they can trouble the top10.
