OA | San Marino breaks the rules

++ Only the UK and then we've got them all ++  the Macedonians presented their official video ++ ..

The reference group of the Eurovision Song Contest has decided that the song selected by San Marino, Facebook, Uh, Oh, Oh is in breach of rule 1.2.2g of the contest. This rule among others states that the lyrics may not contain commercial names. Due to this rule Sweden had to change the lyrics of its selected song in 1987. That song by Lotta enberg was originally called Fyra bugg och en Coca Cola, and was later on changed to Boogaloo. San Marino has the time untill 22 March to change the lyrics or completely select a different song. Would anyone disagree if we advies them to do the latter? 


OA | Honoring Facebook???

++ Sammarinese song presented ++  Belgium selects tonight ++ Five more acts for Amsterdam ++ Eurovision in the charts ++ ..

Didn't we hear Valentina Monetta was a respectable jazz singer? We really wonder how much Ralph Siegel paid her to sing the song she is going to sing for San Marino. There is eurodance and there is eurotrash, we let you comment which category this song belongs to, but this surely is not one of Ralph Siegels best songs in the contest. Facebook is the title of the song, you can listen to it below. Poor Valentina!


OA | Weird and Lovely

++ Bosnian and Montengrin songs presented tonight ++  Loreen's Euphoria doing very well in Finland and Norway ++ ..

Exactly three months ago, the Bosnian broadcaster presented Maya Sar as the country's representative at this year's Eurovision. A monrth ago the title was released, Korake ti znam. Today, finally the song itself got presented. Maya Sar is Maja Sarihodžić, who already could be found on the Eurovision stage in 2004 and 2011 as backing vocal. Listen to her lovely song here. A bit too lovely maybe? You decide!


OA | Sweden on top

++ Bookmakers place Sweden first, Russia second ++  Germany critical about Azerbaijani human rights situation ++ 2 more songs today ++ ..

Still a few countries are awaited to announce, or select (in the case of Belgium) their Eurovision entry this year, but betting has already started. If you guess Loreen's Euphoria will win the contest and you are right, you get just a few dimes more than you paid. In other words Sweden is currently leading the odds, followed by Russia, Denmark, Serbia and Italy. San marino, Macedonia, Montenegro and malta can amke you very rich by winning, they're last in the order right now. 

Loreen is also doing quite well in iTunes land, in her own country her song is both number one and number three in the iTunes top 10 right now (in two different versions).


OA | Jedward to Amsterdam!

++ Two more countries revealed this week ++  Different song selected for Italy ++ news from Belgium, Sweden, Greece and San Marino ++ ..

The fourth edition of Eurovision In Concert is going to be bigger than ever. Fourteen of this year's Eurovision acts have already been revealed. The latest one in that line is the addition of Jedward. The Irish twins were a big hit in Düsseldorf and will most likely be that in Baku again. Half of the teenager girl population went mad when the news was brought out yesterday evening. So join some screaming girls and loads of Eurovision fans on 21 April in Amsterdam. This week at least two more acts are going to be revealed! All news about the biggest Eurovision preview concert, you can find here


Eleftheria Eleftheriou for Greece!

Twenty two year old Eleftheria Eleftheriou will represent Greece with the song Aphrodisiac. Tonight she beat the three other candidates in the Greek national final.

Cypriot Eleftheriou was already supposed to be in the Greek national final in 2010, but then her song got disqualified because it already got out in the open before it was allowed. The Greek audience already knew her as a particpant in X-factor, where she didn't win even though she was the big favorite.

OA | Goodbye Stockholm

++ Loreen was amazing, Danny not too euphoric ++  Greece selecting tonight ++ Moldovan Pasha to Baku ++ ..

After a long weekend in sunny Stockholm, we're flying back to reality today. Melodifestivalen was amazing, Stockholm was amazing and even Danny was. With 500,000 televotes he did better than Eric Saade last year. But not good enough, because Loreen got almost 700,000 which is twice the amount Eric got last year. She was the one being truly amazing! Danny was less euphoric about it, if we may believe the popular press. He didn't attend the afterparty, and expressed some feelings of dissatisfaction. We understand, Danny, but we're so happy Loreen won! See you next year, Stockholm, in March, but maybe in May too!


OA | Donny Montell to Amsterdam

++ Austria, the Netherlands and Lithuania confirmed for EIC! ++  Loreen ill? ++ Jason Donovan said 'No' to Eurovision ++ ..

Three more countries have been confirmed for Eurovision In Concert on 21 April in Amsterdam. Earlier today that was the Netherlands and Austria. Tonight, Lithuanian Danny Montell has been added to the list. There are some more exciting names to be announced really soon now! Keep an eye on the concert's website or on of course!


....the grannies did it!

A whole 25 songs were staged on tonight's Russian final. Only two of them stood out, Julia Volkova & Dima Bilan and the Buranovskiye Babushki.

And the third highlight was Ani Lorak, singing her Shady Lady on stage. Same dress as in 2008, as if nothing changed. Good things don't have to.

Before the show it was already quite clear that Dima Bilan wouldn't pass unnoticed, but his song is considerably less powerfull than his two previous Eurovision entries. On top of that he had for some reason decided to make this a duet together with Julia Volkova, one of the t.A.T.u. girls that hadn't really approved her vocal capacities since she took part in the 2003 Eurovision. The singing grannies from the 2010 Russian final, the Buranovskiye Babushki, were back and how. They were by far the most entertaining act of the evening. Quite unstructured but full of joy they are ready to get Baku dancing. The audience' heart, they obviously already won, no other act got an as enthusiastic response as they did.

And they did it... they won!

Party for everybody!

Unfortunately the webstream didn't last till the end of the voting, we would have loved seeing Dima Bilan's face!

OA | Farrah Fawcett's little brother

++ Max Jason Mai for Slovakia ++  Russia decides tonight, will it be Dima Bilan again ++ Armenia withdraws ++ ..

A few months ago the Slovakian broadcaster announced 23 year old Miro Šmajda as their representative in Baku. Later on this was denied again, but now he is back. Today Max Jason Mai has been announced as the Slovakian hope in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Max Jason Mai is Miro's new artist name. Don't close your eyes is the name of his song. You can hear it down below. Don't you agree that this could have been Farraw Fawcett's (if you're over, let's say 30, you should know who she is) younger brother? They must have the same stylist at least! The song is a bit too rocky for our taste.....
