  24. Finland – Waldo’s People with “Loose Control
  25. Spain – Soraya with “La Noche Es Para Mí (The Night Is For Me)

I am not going to predict anything tonight as the Final is near impossible to predict, but I will give my top 5. In no particular order:


Alexander Rybak is favourite to win, but I think its all hype. They will do well, but will it be enough to bring it to Oslo?


Germany have a fantastic entry this year with Alex Swings Oscar Sings. They also have Dita Von Teese dancing with them, so it will be a great perfromance.


Portugal’s Flor-De-Lis did fantastic on Tuesday night and could do really well. Portugal has been in the Eurovision since 1974 and has never won it so its about time I think!


Svetlana gave a great performance on Thursday and its a good song. Could do well.


Will Chiara make it third time lucky for Malta? Its a nice song could do and got a good reaction.

Sean has also listed who to watch on his blog.

Who do ye think could do it?

  1. Hmmm… I don’t seem to have a favorite song this year, well one I’d listen to outside of the Eurovision anyway, its a pity. I think there’s a few good ones that should do well but nothing that takes my fancy. Like I mentioned before, I like the Icelandic song (and singer heehee 🙂 but its not something I’d listen to.

    German song reminds me too much of that Sam Sparro tune “Black and Gold”. Norway tune is infectious in nature. Funniest song goes to Romania. Those little Balkan thrills in between the choruses crack me up lol Borat has almost ruined Balkan music for me forever :p

    I’ll save the rest of my comments for my live blogging of the event later.

  2. I called it! I figured Norway would win, Iceland was going to my personal winner, Azerbaijan had the sexiest bitch, and the Uk might win if amazing shit happened. They were the top 4. I can safely say, I am the Eurovision king!
