One More Night, by Dinah Nah
Poor Dinah delivered a quintessential fifth-place performance at Melodifestivalen last Saturday. One More Night doesn’t quite reach the manic heights of her 2015 finalist Make Me (La La La) but it still delivers plenty of energy and a catchy, dancefloor-ready refrain that would make it a clear standout in virtually any other national selection. – John Lucas
Mama Pika, by MamaRika
I wish MamaRika’s song for the Ukrainian selection was more like this eponymous rump-shaker. – Ellie Chalkley
Твои Глаза, by Svetlana Loboda
This latest Svetlana Loboda song is currently all over the Russian airwaves, topping their charts. I am really, really hoping that she performs for us in Kyiv. – Sharleen Wright
Tochno Taka, by LaTiDa
LaTida sang backing vocals for Poli Genova in Stockholm last year. I’m loving their new single. – Samantha Ross
Ti Porto A Cena Con Me, by Giusy Ferreri
I’ve got Sanremo on my mind a lot just now, so let’s go for Ti Porto A Cena Con Me from Giusy Ferreri, and a hope that she finally wins Sanremo with ‘Il Paradiso’ (which is still under wraps, they’re tighter than MF for songs) and comes to ESC. – Ewan Spence
