Day 5 - your favourite entry by a male soloist

2011 - Italy - “Follia d’amore" (Madness of love)” by Raphael Gualazzi

You’ll be fine, you’ll be fine,
All your troubles you won’t mind

Then you’ll land in my heart
Being so far away from you just makes me feel so dead

This entry was Italy’s first after 14 years of inactivity in the contest, so this was the first Italian entry I had ever heard. I was really excited to see what they’d do! And of course, I was very happy with it. Maybe I’m biased because I like jazzy stuff.

Day 2 - your least favourite winning entry

2011 - Azerbaijan - “Running Scared” by Ell/Nikki

I’m running, I’m scared tonight
I’m running, I’m scared of life
I’m running, I’m scared of breathing
‘Cause I adore you

Yeah, I found this song to be quite boring compared to many of the other entries in 2011. When this won, I was happy for the country and people of Azerbaijan (because the countries further east tend to have fewer contest wins, and their victory would give the country a chance to show off their land), but I wasn’t happy that this was the song they won with.

The fact they didn’t win is an international tragedy.

No, don’t remind me, my heart can’t take it

Macedonia’s entry for Eurovision this year. :D I was totally rooting for this one! It’s called “Rusinka” (Russian Girl).

It’s about a Macedonian boy that falls in love with a Russian girl, and they don’t understand each other because they speak different languages, but the boy will do anything to learn Russian. <3

It’s a cute theme, and I love how it sounds!

I’ll Write an ESC2011 Review at One Point.

I saw as many live performances on Youtube as I could. I also heard all the songs before the contest happened. :I
My favorites had to be Macedonia, Moldova, and Ireland! But…

Is anyone else a little peeved that Azerbaijan won?
