ESC 2012 - Details for the spanish selection

Ok so today we got (finally!!) some info! Pastora has already chosen two songs and the third one will be picked via an online poll. The voting will begin on Frebruary 15th at 12:00 CET and will end on February 20th at 12:00 CET. People will go to where the two songs will be uploaded and they will vote for their favourite. I wonder if we will be able to vote as well. I hope they don't do anything with the IPs...

The spanish final will be held on March 3rd.

Now about the songs... Apparently "No Me Da Miedo" (just watch at 3:32-4:02!!!) is out of the question... Song's composer said they didn't pick that. He said that people voted for it (on a previous online poll with all the songs of "Una Mujer Como Yo") because they wanted a ballad for Pastora. Plus, David De María, Pablo Alborán and David Ascanio sent songs to her so I guess she picked two songs by these composers and the 3rd will be a song from her album. Let's hope it's gonna be "A Tí" (watch at 4:16-4:30!!!).

Whatever they do I really really hope they go for a ballad. Pastora said the two songs she already picked are different. She wants to sing different styles in order to show us her abilities (no need to do that!).

We are totally going for a top 10! ;)

ESC 2012 - Cyprus with La La Love to Baku!

And it's official "La La Love" to Baku! I think we just wasted our time watching this. It was too obvious! Cyprus will be in top 10 this year and might do much better depending on the other songs of course.

Cyprus is competing in the first semi with running order #12. The fact that they're in the same semi as Greece will get them those 12pts for sure. Totally in the final! ;)

ESC 2012 - The new logo, motto and the semi-finals' allocation draw

So here is the logo for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan. And "Light your fire" huh? What's this? An open invitation to pyromaniacs? But seriously now I like both! Even though we all expected a motto with the word "fire" in it. ;)

And today was the semi-finals' allocation draw. Let's see...

Semi-final 1


San Marino

Italy, Azerbaijan and Spain will vote in the first semi.

Semi-final 2

The Netherlands
FYR Macedonia

Bosnia & Herzegovina

UK, France and Germany will vote in semi 2.

That's all for now. The cypriot NF begins in 20'! Watch here!

ESC 2012 - The cypriot NF - tonight

Ok I said this many times and I will keep saying it. I have no time to blog... But tonight is the cypriot NF...

Honestly I never liked the cypriot entries. There are very few exceptions but the thing is they always let me down. This year is different. Everyone knows the winner so I really wonder why they will actually have the final. :P "La La Love" is the cypriot entry people! But I'm sure you know it (at least if you're that kind of eurofan that they always listen to the songs before the NF). And maybe for the first time in....I don't know...ehm forever(?) I will give Cyprus 10 or 12pts! I love "La La Love"!! Really catchy! And finally Cyprus will make it to the final again after 7 years! Ok they made it in 2010 but before that they did pretty badly. And they will finally get the 12pts from Greece no matter what! lol It's the only year that I will be fine by giving them the 12pts.

But hey! We have two more songs! "You Don't Belong Here" and "Call The Police". I don't really like these.

It's almost 100% sure that Ivi will sing playback tonight which means we won't get to see how she performs each song live. Many are questioning her live vocals. On the other hand she won't be able to "favour" any of the songs if she performs them live... Well we're gonna have to wait for about 7 hours before we find out.

The thing is that Cyprus has a top 10 song or even a top 5. BUT in 2007 they were a favourite to win the entire contest and they didn't even make it to the final!

Anyway, I believe they will do great this year!

ESC 2012 - Iceland's 2nd semi results

Ok I didn't blog about the 1st semi. I didn't even watch the first semi. But tonight Regína Ósk was competing! She made it to the final!! I missed 1/3 of her performance coz I couldn't find a working link. -.- But I will watch it on youtube. It was a piece of cake for her! ;) "Hjartað Brennur" is fantastic!! I totally love it! My winner!

And the second finalist is Simbi og Hrútspungarnir with "Hey". Well I don't really like this but anyway. All I cared about was Regina. Next stop Baku please! :D

EDIT: Regina's live performance

ESC 2012 - Denmark decided

Denmark sends Soluna Samay with "Should've Known Better"! I like it a lot! Nice choice Denmark! That was my second favourite. First favourite was "Overflow". Ok I know it's totally "Let It Rain Over Me" but I love it!

Anyway! Good luck Danmark! ;)
