And so the big night has arrived, the final in the Eurovision Song Contest takes place tonight with 24 participating countries, of which 10 qualified from the semi-final on Thursday. I like the song contest a lot, both the Swedish and the Eurovision one, it manages to conjure up a lot of interesting music (both good and bad). This year I think the Norwegian glam rock band Wig Wam will do well with their 1980’s rock. Unfortunately I think that Swedish Martin Stenmarck will have to settle for a spot in the lower half of the top list, the song simply isn’t good enough (too bad Nanne Grönvall didn’t win). Another tune that I instinctively liked was Croatia, I liked it so much that I had to look up what the lyrics were about (they are in Croatian). It was about wolves, so it’s not to wonder that I liked it. Gerður has reviewed the start list.
We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. Anyway I have prepared by buying the official double CD (which I was happy to find was without copy-protection this year, I boycotted last year’s CD due to its copy-protection). A perfect way to get into the right mood for the night, especially since the weather is gray and it’s raining cats and dogs outside.
