Eurovision 2016 – It has finally begun! Every week we will have our Eurovision expert, Mr David Jørgensen, giving us news and comments on the wonderful world of Eurovision. Fancy reading more? Mr Jørgensen also writes at Schlagerfiasko.
So now we’ve got every Nordic country except Sweden decided. Finland plumped for Sandhja’s Sing It Away, Iceland is sending back Greta Salóme (last seen in Baku 2012) and Norway ultimately had to decide between an overexcited Viking on a Jamaican holiday and a woman doing a Loreen impersonation. Agnete’s Loreen tribute won. Probably for the best. Sadly, Norway’s lesbian tribute to Laika the dog in space didn’t get through to the final.
Incidentally, one of Norway’s songwriters is a Brit. So some form of success may still await for the UK.
Sweden is about to embark on the fifth week of its six-week search for a song. We’ll be watching (so you don’t have to).
Back here next week.
