Take a deep breath and brace yourself because the first Super Saturday is upon us! Last night saw the selection of Jedward for Ireland (which we correctly predicted), and now we hope to follow that with some more predictions for the selection season, including the finals for Malta, Belgium and Poland. Read on, learn where you can follow the contests online and place your bets!
Germany 2010, France 1958, Ireland 1987 and the United Kingdom 1981. Four winning Eurovision songs, but which will our judges (David Elder and Elaine Dove) send through to the next round of Ultimate Juke Box Jury?
Starting this week and coinciding with the first ‘Super Saturday’, ESC Insight brings you our form guide for the national selection process. We will tell you when and where to follow the competitions live and online, who will be competing for each country, and most importantly, who we think best stands to win the coveted prize to represent their nation in Dusseldorf and why!
France decides their singer and song, Melodifestivalen is under way, Jedward cause problems for RTE in Ireland and Italy look to San Remo for their first Eurovision entry of the 21st century. All that and more in the weekly news podcast.
Unashamedly a work of love by Eurovision fans for Eurovision fans, Euroband’s 2008 album “This is My Life” isn’t going to win any Grammy awards, but it’s full of energy an enthusiasm for the Song Contest. And the maddest cover of Bucks Fizz so far.
