Random Eurovision Thoughts

  1. Controversial opinion: Running Scared isn't that bad a winner. 2011 was one of the weakest years I can remember and it was one of the few memorable performances and songs. Nikki's vocals are dire but Ell is competent, and their genuinely delighted reactions to winning were so charming. It's in the lower end of winners but it's not that bad.

  2. I think the issue with Running Scared more is the fact that it's one of the weakest Azerbaijan entries. It seems a shame that this is the one that brought them the victory, as opposed to Always, Hold Me, Miracle etc.

    I agree that 2011 was a bit whack, and this isn't as bad a R*back or S*lvador s winners...

  3. Running Scared is definitely nowhere near being my least favorite winner of all time. Its bland, but its a cute pop song. I don't think it would be as hated had it come 3rd. That said, its one of my least favorite Azeri entries. They just know how to bring it. Sometimes I feel they do Swed-pop better than Sweden does.

  7. My Eurovision predictions are always completely off but I was convinced this would be Albania's best-ever result and it didn't even qualify. It baffles me to this day. Superb song and vocals. That vocal run from 2:11 to the end is extraordinary.

  10. This music video is as boring as him lol. It absolutely came alive in the performances though. If it had been a radio contest this would not win IMHO. But it was deserved overall.

  13. Russia high key had a better song and performance that year. I was not convinced by those little stick men at all.

  14. I feel so dumb now
  15. This makes me hate the 2011 staging even more

  16. Ok this is really bugging me but can someone tell me why I recognise this song? I'm almost sure I don't know it by Fabrizio but I CANNOT place where I know it from? (It's probably not even Eurovision related)

    Any help?
