France 2015 – the official video !

We really didn’t expect it – I didn’t anyway – but France releas a video for N’oubliez pas ! Lisa Angell – N’oubliez pas  


Australia 2015 – it’s not a ballad !

While everyone was worrying about hearing the 78th ballad of this contest, Australians have ultimately opted for a jazzy up-tempo song. Tonight Again is quite good… The mood and Rhythms of the song actually work very well at the moment – Danes tested it for eurovision last year, with mixed success since they finished ninth. […]


selections 2015… 40 + 4 – 2

While today begins the traditional Heads of Delegations meeting, we were still last night missing 6 songs of the world’s biggest song competition 2015. But 4 countries have finally decided today to unveil their choice for the 60th Eurovision Song Contest. Still waiting for Australia (scheduled for tomorrow) and Montenegro (which would not be ready […]


Norway 2015 – Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me

They were our favorites for the podcast # 48, they wins, in a relatively close vote, the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix – the very last national final of this year. The beautiful ballad A Monster Like Me sends Mørland and Debrah Scarlett to Vienna next May.   Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like […]


Melodifestivalen 2015 – Sweden once more ?…

As no surprise, Måns Zelmerlöw wins Melodifestivalen 2015. After two unsuccessful attempts, a perfect performance and a very effective song, allow him to finally represent Sweden at Eurovision. Already very high (3rd on average) no doubt the odds for Sweden are gonna rise after tonight’s final. Out of 11 international juries, only two haven’t ranked […]


Austria 2015 – barber crisis !

Austrians have not chose their little French girl – thank you for that… The Makemakes will have the honor, representing the host country for the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna. We obviously want to send them to an hairstylist, at least to get a shampoo, but we keeps the song !   The Makemakes […]


Israel in 2015 – there was still no ethno pop this year !…

With Armenia sending a boring Disney ballad, Turkey still out this year, and the Greeks forgeting why we love them so much, it’s Israel that saves this contest, choosing the first – and probably the only – ethno pop song of the year ! We certainly heard better, it takes perhaps a little too long […]


Armenia 2015 – creating expectation, hastening the fall…

Incredible teasing around Genealogy, a band created from scratch. Essaï Altounian (the French-Armenian) Tamar Kaprelian (the American) Vahe Tilbian (the Ethiopian) Stephanie Topalian (the Japanese) Mary-Jean O’Doherty Vasmatzian (the Australian) and finally Inga Arshakyan (the Armenian) are supposed to represent the world, the reunion of each and every continents and blah, blah, blah… But placing […]


Belgium 2015 – Loïc Nottet has Rhythm Inside and is Inside Rhythm…

Congratulations to RTBF, to the Belgian delegation, to Loïc and his team. Barely 18, the finalist of The Voice Belgique shows us how it works ! Rhythm Inside is a beautiful song, electro pop with hip hop influences and a very slight RnB touch. Oh, if only my little Loïc (yes, as from today, he […]


Czech Republic 2015 – Hope never dies – We hadn’t any…

Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta just unveiled their song for Eurovision, Hope Never Dies. Let’s be honest, in this one week home stretch, our hopes were not on them…   Marta Jandová & Václav Noid Bárta – Hope Never Dies – République Tchèque 2015  


Poland 2015 – what about a ballad for a change…

Monika Kuszyńska is to represent Poland this year, with the song In The Name Of Love. A ballad just like so many others… But obviously, this is not what viewers will mark on May 21. What they will remember is the wheelchair where Monika will be seated. Will it be enough for her to progress […]


Romania 2015 – is it really what they had better ?!…

Romanians chose Voltaj and their song De la capăt to represent them in Vienna. A very mysterious choice for me… What did they saw or heard good in that ?!   Voltaj – De la capăt  


Portugal 2015 – back in 99

According to Aïtor, Portugal replays 1999… Maybe, but we have to admit Há um Mar que nos Separa was the least bad thing heard in the final of Festival da Canção 2015, I even quite like it… Leonor Andrade is thus the one flying to Vienna in May… PS – Aïtor hadn’t drink at all […]


UK 2015 – at least they’ve got the jubilee concert…

Electro Velvet ! Their name sounded like a promise… The song appears as a quite cold shower. Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas aka Electro Velvet will sing Still In Love With You. Nostalgic ride through the Roaring Twenties, slightly updated. Too slightly…   Electro Velvet – Still In Love With You – United-Kingdom 2015  


Melodifestivalen 2015 – Make Me La La La…

We now know the 12 songs of the Melodifestivalen 2015 final ! And Dinah Nah is in the lineup ! This is actually the only (happy) surprise of this Andra Chansen.     1. Andreas Weise – Bring Out the Fire 2. Linus Svenning – Forever Starts Today So this is Linus Svenning will “end […]


Germany 2015 – Berlin 2016 !

After a wonderful national final, Andreas Kummert is the one Germans chose to represent them at Eurovision Song Contest 2015… But Ann Sophie is the one to be in Vienna next May !… Unbelievable turnaround after the announcement of results. Andreas Kummert who doesn’t picture himself on the contest stage – and he’s right in […]


Greece 2015 – Athens will also fall asleep early…

Huh ?! A ballad for Greece ! Since when had they no longer done that to us ?! No no, that, doesn’t go well at all ! Greeks are the ones who make us usually dance. What the f*** happens to them ? A flavourless ballad ?… Just a little southern accent in the voice. […]


Melodifestivalen 2015 – we now have a winner…

            they’ll be in the final… Måns Zelmerlöw – Heroes (Mååååååååååååååns !…) JTR – Building it Up (under 18 girls had their cell phone…) they get a second chance.. Dinah Nah – Make me (La La La) (You got me so high – Make me La la la – Make […]


France 2015 – live presentation of N’oubliez pas

Saturday night on France 2, Lisa Angell officially presented her song for Eurovision. The opportunity to listen to the new version of N’oubliez pas (do not forget). The end of the song has been changed and the result is pretty convincing. The song was very flat in its first version, but is now gaining momentum […]
