Eurovision fever is building around the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, and the Unofficial Eurovision Podcast is part of that. On with the show!
It’s another Juke Box Jury, as myself and an invited team of judges listen to every country’s Eurovision entry this year and rate them as a Hit, a Miss, or a Maybe. Karina and Paul return in this podcast, and as expected there’s differences of opinions, clunky songs, and jaws falling open in amazement at some of the compositions and performances on offer.
To keep it fair, the full songs aren’t played in the podcast (but we do listen to all the tracks when recording) – for that you need to explore the official videos via YouTube, or consider picking up the double CD from Amazon.
So, to the Court of Music and the next Juke Box Jury!
