it’s eurovision week!

One of the few weeks in the year we’ve been waiting for is finally here – it’s Eurovision week!!!


The Eurovision Song Contest, Europe’s biggest and most loved TV show, kicks off in Moscow on Tuesday with the first semi-finals. The second semi-finals follow on Thursday and the grand finals with all 25 finalists happens this Saturday when we will be throwing a party at our place, projector screen and all.

Here are my favorites from the 1st semi-finals:

Turkey: Hadise – Düm Tek Tek 

Romania: Elena – The Balkan Girls

Portugal: Flor-de-lis – Todas As Ruas Do Amor

Bosnia & Herzegovina: Regina – Bistra Voda

Here are my favorites from the 2nd semi-finals, where Norway’s Alexander Rybak will compete in.

Norway: Alexander Rybak – Fairytale

Denmark: Brinck – Believe Again

Azerbaijan: AySel & Arash – Always

Greece: Sakis Rouvas – This Is Our Night

Ukraine: Svetlana Loboda – Be my Valentine! (Anti-crisis Girl)

I really dont have a favorite among the five direct finalists – the “big four” Spain, Germany, United Kingdom and France and last year’s winner Russia.

The anticipation is running high, the party will be great, the show is sure-fire fantastic. I can’t wait!!!

    I’ll just resort to watching Eurovision on a Spanish channel since I couldn’t make it back home yet. But I am flying on the 28th though. Hope to see you soon Mark once I’ll take a trip to Oslo during Gay Pride!
