My last post focused on looking back, a retrospective on a fantastic national final season. However, now we have our full list of songs it's all about looking forward. May might seem like it's an age away, but it will creep up quick. Get excited now because we're set for an absolute classic. Class of … Continue reading EUROVISION 2021: 25 REASONS TO GET EXCITED!
There can be an awful lot of negativity surrounding the Contest, especially over the last week. There were, however, many positive things that made these past few months a fantastic time to be a Eurofan. So as we head into the final weekend of songs, here's a wee jaunt down memory lane... The fact it … Continue reading NATIONAL FINALS 2021: 25 MOMENTS TO TREASURE
No, just like last time. I'm not really at one with the crystal balls, it seems. Saturday was another busy night for Eurofans, the evening just flew by...all eight and a half hours of it. Before we enter into what is quite possibly the most intense week of all time for song reveals, here's a … Continue reading PIF PAF PREDICTIONS PART 2…DID THEY COME TRUE?
Since the start of the Eurovision year on September 1st, we've had 19 entries for the 2021 Contest confirmed. That leaves, with just over nine days until the Heads of Delegation meeting, a total of 21 songs left to hear for the first time. Whilst I'm almost certain at this stage there'll be someone holding … Continue reading PIF PAF PREVIEWS, PREFERENCES & PREDICTIONS PART 2: THE SECOND SUPER SATURDAY
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, up popped the notification...the Romanian song was now on the official YouTube channel. I bemoaned on Twitter, how little fanfare there was for a song presentation. Little did I know what was to follow mere hours later... Given we no longer have the Belarus open auditions to while away a … Continue reading Let’s Keep Last Night Between Ourselves, Shall We?
Thanks to the global pandemic and the subsequent cancellation of the 2020 Contest, we have found ourselves with an unusually high number of internal selections this year. Then, for some reason, almost every one of them chose to unveil their entry in March. With a fortnight left to submit we've still got well over half … Continue reading MARCH MADNESS: HERE COMES THE MUSIC!
With no national finals being decided this weekend (we still need to get 27 more songs...HOW IS THIS HAPPENING???) the past seven days have been all about those internal selections. Four countries unveiled their chosen entries over as many days from Wednesday to Saturday. We had the Cypriot mid-afternoon One Show; a German leak; early … Continue reading WEEKLY ROUND UP: ALL ABOUT INTERNALS
In having a wee peak through the stats for this site I noticed that the next post, whatever it may be, would be the 100th. I wasn't quite sure what to make of this but I didn't want to just let it pass unacknowledged. I thought given we're about to hit a fairly frenetic fortnight … Continue reading Thank You For The Music
No, not really. Before the madness of Super Saturday I outlined who I wanted and who I thought might make the cut across the six selections. Few right, most wrong, a Norwegian heartbreak that I may never recover from...y'know, just the usual. NORWAY 🇳🇴 PREDICTION: TIX to win.✔️ I sincerely promise you dear reader, I … Continue reading PIF PAF PREDICTIONS…DID THEY COME TRUE?
A combination of less national finals and seemingly every internally selecting broadcaster holding back their song until March has resulted in a quiet start to the 2021 season. With two or three shows every Saturday since mid-January it has felt like a fairly gentle introduction. However, the mayhem finally begins proper tomorrow as one selection … Continue reading PIF PAF PREVIEWS, PREFERENCES & PREDICTIONS FOR SUPER SATURDAY
