I agree that the "We are Slavic" video is too sexualized... but honestly I got an erection while watching it.
It seems that they have reached their purpose: the whole Europe is talking about them.
I didn't like the Italian entry at all honestly... while San Marino was good. I haven't seen the others.
Nothing wrong with getting an erection, it was pretty porny.
I didn't like San Marino, it felt a bit dry and the lyrics were kind of meh.
Belarus was cute, not awesome, but I like a man who can move his feet.
And it was catchy: I've had the chorus in my head all week.
Did anyone else think there seemed to be more entries with a male performer in the finals than usually? I think it's usually said that only a woman can win, but I think that's becoming less true. I was happy that there was a pretty even gender distribution this year.
Armenia was my personal black horse this year, meaning that I did not foresee people liking it so much. Well, also Hungary.
I voted for Norway in the semifinal -- I know that it was a tad oversentimental, but I felt the guy's voice really fit the song, and I liked the song's lyrics.
What a surprise that Finland's teenage band did so well! I think it helped that it was the only song remotely like that in the competition.
