Whee ... !! again. :-)
Tonight's the big night for us Norwegians. Our little hobbit will defend our honor in ... one and a half hour till the show starts, and then ... another half hour, I guess, till it's our turn. Good luck, Alexander ... !!
My guesses for tonight, let's see. Who will make it through? Well, I'm pretty sure about us. But then again, maybe not? There's usually, or at least very often, one really good song that everybody's so sure will make it that ends up not making it. Like for instance Je t'adore and If I Had Your Love. Maybe Fairytale will be one of them? I don't really think so :-) but on the other hand I won't be entirely surprised if that happens. The hype has been so extreme that there's almost bound to be a backlash sooner or later. Then again, one might argue that that has already happened - I think most people in this country are starting to get heartily sick of our song. ;-) It does get really annoying after a while. Gaah ... if it wins, we'll never hear the end of it ... !! :-D
Anyway. I think these will make it through to Saturday.
Moldova. Absolutely no question. I will be shocked if they don't make it.
Estonia. Please please please!! I will be voting for them.
These I don't think we'll see again.
Serbia, quite possibly.
And the same for Latvia.
This is a very even field, though - not really any one song that's head and shoulders above the others. And not really any totally shitty ones, either. Well, except ... shudder ... Ukraine. I really don't want them to make it, because their song so totally sucks ass. But I think they probably will.
Fingers crossed ... !! :-)
