[OFF TOPIC] Eurovision Song Contest 2018

Recommended Posts

To me the best part of this year’s final was the first 5 minutes (amazing fado from Mariza and Ana Moura - a former TISC participant!!!).

 

And of course the performance of Salvador Sobral and Brazilian musicando genius Caetano Veloso, showing how much we appreciate our lovely brothers from South America :d

(specially with that last sentence from Salvador at the end haha : "Bringing real music to the eurovision")

Very happy with Italy 5th, I hope for top ten and they done better. Maybe the performance with the sentences in different languages helped people to understand it.

 

Italy is the only country in the top ten who sang in his language, the second is Albania on 12th place: I know when your language is so beautiful is easier to sing in your mother song :)

 

About the final results I was surprised by the lots of votes Austria took from national jury (I don't understand what experts saw in this ordinary song + ordinary performance) and the lack of votes from audience for England maybe everyone thought "Great job during the singing but I still don't like the song".

 

I don't like Sobral's attitude before and during the show keeping saying that real music is not about fireworks and so on and I'm very happy he was forced to award the only song he spoke against. Maybe when he's going to understand that music is much more than his narrow idea of it, he could become a better artist.

 

However I enjoyed very much the show and the new system of voting that gave a thrilling end.

So after one day since the final...
What is the song you regret not voting for?

Personally I would have to say Moldova. 

Thse lyrics may not be the most "inteligent" the Eurovision had to offer  but the song is cheerfull, dynamic , funny and good-spirited. I think it might be the sleeper hit for many radio stations across the Europe.

@hckosice I just read that Slovakian radio station "Rádio FM" broadcast Grand Final of this year contest, do you think that it can be any sign that Slovakia will return to the contest soon?

Ireland and Iceland are considering withdrawal from 2019 contest, because of currently situation between Israel and Palestine... Soon broadcaster from both countries will take a official decision

 

France and United Kingdom consider withdrawals as well.

Sincerely I have no idea. But I´ll be really surprised if SVK will take part of this competition in the soon or later future :p There absolutely no particular interest in the country about it (if no Totallympics I would barely notice that Israel won it ) and since the show is always scheduled during the Ice Hockey worlds, there no chance the national broadcaster can find any room to schedule it

I hope so. Anything that sends out a signal to Israel to show how disgusted we are by their treatment of the Palestinian people gets my vote.

I was thinking about this the next day after Israel's win. Of course these TV stations should take a hard look at whether or not they will withdraw because of Israel's government, but even with our objections (and despite the objections from those same TV stations), the EBU will find a way to make sure at least 40 countries take part (and invite Australia, but I digress). Anything to make a buck.
