    Czech Republic CZECH REPUBLIC 2022 - We Are Domi - Lights Off

    Not heard a single, passable live performance of this which has to be a worry. The track is decent but it needs much improved live execution.

    Australia AUSTRALIA 2022 - Sheldon Riley - Not The Same

    Main issue with this, and why it will be televote poison, is how overblown and self-indulgent it all is.

    United Kingdom UNITED KINGDOM 2022 - Sam Ryder - Space Man

    You can see he's a rookie trying to sell a live performance.

    Greece GREECE 2022 - Amanda Tenfjord - Die Together

    It's a class entry & lyrically fits with what we are seeing right now in Europe, which may well be far worse in May.

    Cyprus CYPRUS 2022 - Andromache - Ela

    deadly dull. You guys have lost the plot with this one. Completely forgettable.

    Portugal PORTUGAL 2022 - Maro - Saudade, Saudade

    I can understand why they don't want Syro or the opener in the final to win - both are average to poor. Aurea's song is far too plain as well no matter her competence as a live singer.

    Portugal PORTUGAL 2022 - Maro - Saudade, Saudade

    Maro's song and performance has some magic working for it. Hope Portuguese people see sense and send her to Lisbon.

    Poland POLAND 2022 - Ochman - River

    The scoring system does look ludicrous and teed up for abuse. I would also agree River could do with some refinement and improved arrangement, but it still remains the strongest option for Poland this year and would have top 4 potential. Daria does struggle live but she could be concealed under...

    Ukraine UKRAINE 2022 - Kalush Orchestra - Stefania

    Ukraine always brings the drama. I recall Alyosha in 2010 and her original song being DQ-ed. Even if she goes to Turin, no way is Alina winning. You need to think about the current situation from EBU's perspective. Ukr would be last on its list of potential hosts next year. Also, the song is...

    Greece GREECE 2022 - Amanda Tenfjord - Die Together

    Sounded promising to me, nice melody, lovely chorus, & if that's only an early demo, room for something high class to emerge. ESC is not just about bombastic entries. Ballads always earn a lukewarm reception among fans but quality will always out.

    Greece GREECE 2022 - Amanda Tenfjord - Die Together

    Amanda has some great songs in her past and this is her favourite she has ever written. People backing Greece are latching onto this, along with the fact she is excellent live and so far we have had very few contenders appear. Poland is short in the odds because backers are taking a leap of...

    Australia AUSTRALIA 2022 - Sheldon Riley - Not The Same

    Big Depeche Mode fan. They are excellent live. 'Precious' among thir best imho.

    Australia AUSTRALIA 2022 - Sheldon Riley - Not The Same

    Dreamer is so primitive. Like a very old and discarded Depeche Mode b-side from the early 90s.

    Moldova MOLDOVA 2022 - Zdob și Zdub & Frații Advahov - Trenulețul

    Might this be in the mix? You can see the song easily edited down to 3mins - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGNT5Uh-WKw&t=331s

    United Kingdom UNITED KINGDOM 2021 - James Newman - Embers

    You've maybe not seen his chat show or heard his radio show when he's making the same point every year - chortling away at the brave soul heading to the firing line once more.

    United Kingdom UNITED KINGDOM 2021 - James Newman - Embers

    All day you hear assorted BBC people & their showbiz chums all saying 'great UK entry', 'best in years', 'this should do well if it's about the song but of course we know it's not', chortle chortle. It's a pitiful situation here. The BBC needs a massive wake up call. It's yet more generic...

    Switzerland SWITZERLAND 2021 - Gjon's Tears - Tout l’univers

    There is a 'most recent' mechanism with the betting odds so the latest entry to impress is backed down. But I think it has got carried away with Switzerland. Very little sticks with this. It suits the official video quite well but I've not seen a single live performance from this guy that has...

    Russia RUSSIA 2021 - Manizha - Russian Woman

    Netta was credible though. 'Toy' was a nuanced, original pop track. Little Big are offering pastiches of 90s songs that veer into pure novelty. There is a key difference.

    Russia RUSSIA 2021 - Manizha - Russian Woman

    This song is a copy of 'Oops Upside Your Head'. Little Big wouldn't have won ESC last year with Uno and won't be winning with this. Fans seem to be suckers for these fun, uptempo entries but they are deluding themselves if they think this type of novelty trash can win.
