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
Readers of this blog might have picked up on our avid fascination for Denmark and all things Danish. Since we’ve both lived there, we’ve sort of adopted the country as our second homeland. In Eurovision terms we almost always love whatever the Danes pick for us, with very few exceptions. Such as the Continue reading
It’s time to beat the Danes again. In football, that is. But just before the Danes go completely bananas in trashing Norwegians for the sake of trying to preserve what’s left of their confidence, let us just show you that we are better people. Once, about 11 years ago, you were actually the winners, peepz:
Gone away is that blue feeling, here to stay is that new feeling. We’re totally, utterly, even extremely happy to now see the love of our life, Denmark, plus the almost as loved Ireland and Estonia in the upcoming final Saturday. Because while Tuesday’s voting was somewhat interesting to say the least, this one was all we could hope for. Maybe apart from the fact that we have to survive through yet another three minutes of Swedish screaming.
The official welcome party of Eurovision Song Contest 2011 went down on Saturday and since we were not there parading up the red carpet like we did last year, we have decided that it wasn’t half as good, and we probably didn’t miss out on anything. Most of the Eurovision celebs had thrown on their fanciest rags for the occasion, and let’s just say that some have a better sense of style than others…
Flipping through the pics from eurovision.tv we can at least point out a couple of observations. The EBU photographer is clearly no fashion photographer, in fact, we wonder if he has even held a camera in his hands ever before. And at times we wonder if this is even taken from the right event as it looks more like some random guy’s Facebook album from a Halloween party he attended in high school. Good grief! Very well, here’s some red carpet highlights and lowlights for you.
With the rehearsals well underway in Düsseldorf, the excitement of the Eurovision final week is rapidly growing. While some entrants are picking up popularity and gaining new fans as we write, others have jaded after doing train wreck rehearsals or by not coming across as very likable during the press conferences. As last year, we have picked five favorites to cheer for. We find it impossible to agree on only one, and besides what’s the point of that anyways? It’s much more fun to pick several, and if a few of them crash and burn in the semi we still got it covered and have someone to support in the big Saturday final.
