Joke entries are not just fun. They're deep, deeper than serious entries, because they're self-aware. And the jury just killed them.I get irritated when joke entries are justified by "but Eurovision is supposed to be fun! Juries bad!" Like...no. Songs don't have to be jokes to be fun. There are many great fun songs, and juries rewarded many great fun songs. And I absolutely agree, juries saved Eurovision. I don't think we'd have about 40 countries participating each year now if it wasn't for the re-introduction of the jury.
Yes, thanks to the jury for saving us all by turning it into Eurovision 40 Radio-friendly Pop Song Written By A Swedish Composer With That One Ballad Winning Contest."But...but...we have many generic songs now." Also no. Since when a good pop song equals to "generic"? The term "generic" is way overused in the fandom. And I absolutely agree, juries saved Eurovision.
True. Finland 2021 is an example. So many 2000s rock clichés, i can't. Do you know why it sucks? Because it's unoriginal.At the same time, songs in underrepresented genres are almost automatically given the "awesome" rate, even when they're a weak(er) example of their genre.
As i said, it's self-aware, unlike piles of songs about abstract love and peace. This's a whole another level.Irelande Douze Pointe has a deeper meaning? Well, did not know that xD
Yes, after the GF!And Belarus will pick the entry, when exactly? In May?
Me, casually checking Belarusian thread this year...Me coming into the Belarus thread to see if there is any news...
Edit: Its a cover
Yeah, reminds me of beautiful Russian cartoons Volk i Zajec = "Wolf and rabbit"!Sounds like some theme song of kids show.
