  3. My best:
    1. Leave Me Alone (an anthem for the angsty 2007 version of me)
    2. Runaway (whoever wrote the Wikipedia entry about how this song and performance all came together should be writing crime fiction)
    3. Where Are You (still goes off)

    My worst:
    Any of the most recent 5. Varying levels of torture.

  4. I wish host countries would be a bit more daring with their entries. You've won, you're guaranteed a place in the final, and you probably don't want to host a second year in a row so just go balls to the wall.
  5. Someone said it might by a song BY Jett Rebel, performed by Trijntje....

  12. O Jardim is a great song, some of you really need to get taste.

  14. That changes things. But I still want something else rock-esque to show some diversity.

  15. I actually would like to see an electronic artist. For real, Dutch electronic scene is one of the best in the world and we haven't had trance music since this ahead-of-its-time gem:

    Just... send something that isn't house, get a good staging AND most importantly a singer who is good live and I'll be stanning.

    So instead let's be prepared to some acoustic guitar snoozefest.
  16. O Jardim definitely deserved better. I'm glad the plagiarism controversy actually happened and Diogo Piçarra withdrew because I hated that song dd I like that Portugal went experimental these last two year despite not getting good results. I hope it's a sign they will keep going on this route and I don't know that soon enough we are gonna have a good pop song from them on the contest

    who should we impeach

  20. Whooo?

    They better give us The Vengaboys as interval act. If Aqua showed up for Denmark back in the days... Vengaboys surely can squeeze in a cute little medley, no?
