We want to love Iceland. But they are not making it easy for us:
Forget about those crappy previous entries from Czech Republic. Turns out they were just waiting for the right time to introduce Mikolas Josef:
We’re heading over to Latvia to check out what they have dished up for us this year, and it turns out to be a Rizzotto.
There’s nothing funny about writing your own music, good on Laura Rizzotto for being the creative force behind her entry. Unfortunately this is about the only positive aspect we can come up with when reviewing the self penned Funny Girl. Because being undeniably talented, brimming with creativity and looking drop dead gorgeous does not guarantee a successful outcome. Continue reading
Cyprus is back to an entry that is bound to plague the living daylight out of Ayia Napa’s beaches.

If winning doesn’t happen, there must be something rotten in the state of Eurovision.
Oh, Italy. You really are a country that keeps on giving:
Last year Lithuania failed miserably with sending a concept instead of an actual song to compete in Eurovision. Thus we can totally understand the urgency of sending a good old-fashioned proper ballad to Lisbon. While Fusedmarc was a screaming hot mess, Ieva Zasimauskaitė barely whispers her way through her designated three minutes. If we could have pasted a big FRAGILE sticker over the whole performance we would.
