The first month of Eurovison National Finals is complete, and six of the 39 nations competing in ESC 2013 have chosen their entries. I don’t hear a winner yet, but with some preparation and production work, I could see three or four of these in the Saturday finals.
So far, these are the entries (in alphabetical order):
High drama in an Eastern/ethnic style. Well-performed, but I’m still not convinced.
Pretty Alyona sings a competent dance-pop song. With work this could go over with voters.
For a winner of Belgium’s version of THE VOICE, he seems a little tentative on the vocals, Interested to see if this gets better.
Pleasant song and singer, but bad accent and a bit monotonous.
Probably the most immediate and catchy of the entries chosen so far. With a good staging this could go far.
Very pretty singer with a great voice, but the strident backing vocals take it down a notch. If they rework this for Eurovision it could be really good.
