Yesterday was the annual Eurovision Song Contest and like most Europeans I watched the entire thing and really enjoyed it. I think a few years back it was harder to appreciate the music because there were so many gimmicky acts. I liked a lot of the music this year (as well as the outfits) so I’ve decided to share my favourites here.
1. Greta Salome and Jonsi – Never Forget entry for Iceland
I love the video for this song – such beautiful scenery and the fairytale quality really adds to the song.
2. Eleftheria Eleftheriou – Aphroldisiac entry for Greece
I thought that this would be the winner. It isn’t my usual cup of tea, but it is crazy catchy. Plus (no offence to the Greeks) I wanted to see what would happen if Greece won, seeing as the situation there isn’t great.
3. Loreen – Euphoria entry for Sweden
This is the actual winner. I loved the performance of the song live, it was the best one. She has a great voice.
