Mads Mortensen is one of our favorite Danes, which says a whole lot since Denmark is one of our favorite countries and we secretly wish they could adopt us and grant us a second citizenship. Mads is both funny and sweet and represents the values we appreciate the most about the Eurovision fan community. It’s all about inclusion, tolerance and embracing the differences. Besides, he has a wonderful geeky side and knows his Eurovision history. He brings plenty of sass, dresses sharp, charms the girls and he invites you all to join the party. So without further ado, here’s Mads!
If we were to decide, these three people would never ever be let anywhere near Eurovision lyrics: a)Paolo Coelho, b)Rhonda Byrne and c)Dr. Phil. Yet they seem to have teamed up quite perfectly for Denmark’s entry this year:
Yay, we remembered there were 18 more songs to go and just saw the first dress rehearsal for the second semi final. It is also brewing up to be a great show, of course. The undisputable highlight being our favourite Schlagerboys appearing on the big screen, driving around in a taxi, which we’ve heard is shady business in Stockholm. This is what else to expect:
01 Latvia Justs Heartbeat
Has shown a vast selection of leather jackets, so it is a bit disappointing that he chose the black one for the stage. Maybe he should borrow Poland’s stylist? Other than that, douze points for effort. Will be in the run for best performance in the final together with Hungary’s Freddie.
02 Poland Michał Szpak Color Of Your Life
After the Bosnia & Herzegovina disaster in the first semi final, we are happy there is at least half a cello left for Poland. Michal wants people to sing along, and we can now reveal why you know that melody so easily: it echoes the riff of “I will survive”, which is a message we keep repeating to ourselves every morning these days. Clever little thing that Captain Jack Sparrow. Continue reading
We Scandinavians should always stick together and support each other as tiny, peaceful nations in a world of hungry pitbulls. But the Danes make that very hard sometimes:
As Norwegians we are meant to have some sort of (post)colonial relationship to Denmark, looking up to them as our metropolitan connection to the world, the ones who provide us with fresh ideas, teach us how to behave and set the standard we should all try to reach, whether we want to or not.
Sadly you won’t find your favorite Eurovision bloggers reporting live from the press center and from premier VIP seating inside the arena this year. Due to a series of unforeseen circumstances, which we won’t bore you with the details. But we promise to be back on location next year when it’s Italy’s turn to host Eurovision again!
Did you overdose on Danish cheeky smugness last year? You better brace yourself cause it’s coming back to hunt you yet another year!
From the first moment the lead vocalist’s acutely slappable face shows up on screen you just know this is gonna become one of those annoyingly catchy entries that sticks to your brain whether you like it or not. Still, the ESC fan community seems to hate The Way You Are with passion; even the Danes themselves have a hard time getting behind the Anti Social Media lads. Does this mean Denmark will fail to qualify for the final for the first time since 2007? We don’t think so. Trust us when we say this will most definitely qualify and there are plenty of reasons why.

During the Jury Final last night all of a sudden a few acts we couldn’t remember from before popped up. We almost forgot that paying your way straight to the final is also an option; only someone forgot to tell Russia and Azerbaijan about it yet. Here are our reviews of the Big 5 and the host country!

How many times can Emmelie sing how many times, without causing permanent damage to a couple of poor Eurovision bloggers minds? And hey, that thin whistle, please give us a break and drive us to the nearest psychiatric ward. Top that off with never ending spastic hand movements, a hairdo that could use a good brush and that rag she apparently thinks is a dress and there’s a lot getting on our nerves. Continue reading
