Tonight’s Eurovision Song Contest final will be interesting, I think. Somehow I doubt there will be a clear cut winner in the manner of last year; there are too many good songs in too many styles. All of the bookie’s favourites will divide the voters, I think, and the voters and juries will be all at odds too.
I think the one dead certainty is that neither the voters nor the juries will vote for the UK’s entry! Will we score nul points once again or will we get a pity vote from Ireland?
My friend Ethan says it tempts fate to publish your favourites but here goes. I don’t have a firm definite favourite but I would be very happy if the overall winner emerged from this group:
Jessy Matador - Allez olla olé
Tom Dice - Me and My Guitar
Giorgos Alkaios & Friends - OPA
Hera Björk - Je ne sais quoi
Juliana Pasha - It’s All About You
Niamh Kavanagh - It’s For You
Lena - Satellite
I hope I haven’t jinxed their chances! We shall see tonight.
