Bulgaria is a ballad??

April 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Robichaud

Denmark. Oh dear, they managed to make me hear the lyrics. 3/5

Ukraine is interesting, but too dark and not catchy enough. 4/5

Norway is pleasant, but somewhat too soporific. I like the M83 influence. 3/5

Georgia may have turned up at the wrong competition. 2/5

Albania would be better with more orchestra. The uh oh is terrible rather than interesting to me. 1/5

Belgium is really fun, but also possibly out of place. 3/5

No predictions yet for the final today? Maybe later I guess. My picks are:

1. Russia
2. Australia
3. France
4. Ukraine
5. Sweden
6. Armenia
7. Netherlands
8. Bulgaria
9. Belgium
10. Latvia
