Random Thoughts:

A change of pace from Jedward.

Our Score: 7/10

San Marino

Youngest Duet. World Backdrop. Weird song.

Good Weird. The violins adds a layer into it.

Unique we give it that.

Random Thoughts:

Violin intro. Long intro to the song.

A Foreign Language song. But the audience is getting into it. The music is catchy – its not dull or dreary.
Our Score: 7/10

 

Malta

Random Thoughts:

Lots of black lace on her. Dramatic lighting. Definitely got a good set of vocal pipes on her.

Another song playing on what last years winner did.

We prefer the Georgia’s song also called Warrior.

Our Score: 7/10

Norway

Our Score: 6/10

Portugal

Random Thoughts:

Whole bag of Euro tricks: wind machine, strobe lighting and flashing images. Always sing in their native tongue.

DIY Darth Vader costume she is wearing.

Our Score: 6/10

Czech Republic

Random Thoughts:
Not the best Duet. It is too dreary, background is just plain and the song sounds it too. It is rather dramatic and the audience are reacting to them but We do not feel it.

We take that back – they up the final 40 seconds.

Our Score: 7/10

Israel

Israel: Nadav Gudej Credits: Ronen Akerman These are the promotional photos of Nadav Guedj, representing Israel at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Random Thoughts:

Channelling Olly Murs or early Justin Timbalake. Rhythmic boy-band action. His background dancers are keeping the energy high.

Catchy – best song so far.

Our Score: 9/10

Latvia

Latvia: Aminata Credits: Martins Cirulis These are the promotional photos of Aminata, representing Latvia at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Random Thoughts:

Massive dress and weird intro. Its unique enough to be memoriable.

Its not really growing on us. It maybe the mic but its not all there.

Our Score: 7/10

Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan: Elnur Huseynov Credits: Magnus Ragnvid These are the promotional photos of Elnur Huseynov, representing Azerbaijan at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Random Thoughts:

The BBC Commentator team say focus on the dancers and not the singer. OK.

The contemporary dancers are wacky. The singer is not doing much other than belting out the tune. We want this to go through – just for the dancers.

Song is too bland for us. Audience is reacting to it so expect this to do well.

Our Score: 5/10

Iceland

Iceland: Maria Olafs Credits: Jonatan Gretarsson These are the promotional photos of María Ólafsdóttir, representing Iceland at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Random Thoughts:

It feels very “Let it go” to begin with. It does pick up pace. The dress does not do the song justice style wise.

Aurora Borealis in the background.

Good. We like this one. Good range, it bit over elaborate but good.

Our Score: 8/10

 

Sweden

Sweden: Måns Zelmerlöw Credits: Per Kristiansen These are the promotional photos of Måns Zelmerlöw, representing Sweden at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Random Thoughts:

Great interaction with the background to start off with. Interactive background.

He has got his timing down and positioning too.

Choreography with the graphics weird to watch. The song is ok.
Our Score: 7/10

Random Thoughts:

Cloak over a dress, weird design. Reveal of dress – the cloak is actually a cape. Is she Batman?

Good set of pipes on her. The range of the song is great and she certainly has pulled the male vote in with the dress. Very revealing, very pop diva.
Our Score: 8/10

Cyprus

Random Thoughts:

Jazz/ Ed Sheeran feel at the start. A good ballad with its second half focusing on graphics. Starts too slow for us.

Our Score: 6/10

Slovenia

Slovenia: Maraaya Credits: Tibor Golob Maraaya

Random Thoughts:
Weird trademark – Wearing headphones everywhere.

Her weird vocals are a good change from the normal female piping it out. We like it. They seemed to have covered all the Euro bases. They even have a contemporary dancer fake playing a violin in the background.
Our Score: 8/10

Poland

Random Thoughts:

Good set up with a pink and white vibrant colour set. The wheelchair does look a bit out of place but they did what they could. Average song.

Struggled to get that emotion there. Good singer but not for us.

Our Score: 7/10
