    The ESC has evolved over the years from being corny and camp into a premier music contest ..check out the entries from FRANCE, ITALY, GREECE, ISRAEL, GERMANY,  ESTONIA, BELGIUM, FINLAND, UKRAINE and SWITSZERLAND

    My predictions for the winners ………

    FRANCE…. a mid tempo electro-pop chanson  by a very French duo that has a major political advantage over its competitors as it’s about the migrant crises here in Europe; it’s called ”Merci” and  is a sentimental story of a baby born to migrants while crossing the dangerous Med ..it has a haunting, catchy beat that’s sure to strike a chord and chime with the zeitgeist ! WINNER ALERT ! 20-1 odds

    GREECE …Epic and atmospheric ; both eerie, dark and dripping with nostalgia   for a bygone era ; it evokes the glories of Classical Greece  ,nay resurrects the ancient dead, to rendezvous with the present in ecstasy …with drums, flutes and shrieking horns it’s simply transcendent and epic ! COULD WIN 25-1 odds

    ESTONIA ….Italian opera ; truly atmospheric …a deserving possible winner !  6-1 odds

    BELGIUM … smooth James Bond themed music from a great Belgium female singer …fantastic sound that’s sure to place in the top four !  10-1 odds

    —————————-
    ISRAEL aint winning that’s for sure , but Netta will get the idiot vote
    HUNGARY …Head banging heavy metal from around 1983…like Austin Powers, they’re around 30 years too late
    FINLAND …not bad for generic pop
    SPAIN …..mawkish, sentimental and syrupy ”a la ” Donny and Marie Osmond ..that’s only going to win if all the voters are teenagers !

    Italy isn’t going to win even though it does have a powerful Anti Jihadist political message…the song is just not very good and Meta and Moro are fortunate in not getting disqualified for lifting the chorus from a previous song of theirs back in 2016; its not plagiarism, but it does contravene the spirit of Eurovision, a sense of fair play and sets a bad precedent ….Meta and Moro are a pair of artful dodgers who look like a duo of scruffy migrants straight off the boat from Albania

    Sometimes the best song doesn’t win …check this out; haunting duet and great staging from Estonia !

    Elina Born & Stig Rästa – Goodbye To Yesterday (Estonia) – LIVE at Eurovision 2015 Grand Final//YOUTUBE

    Or check out this whimsical fairy story ballad from the Balkans…

    Hari Mata Hari – Lejla (Bosnia and Herzegovina) 2006 Eurovision Song Contest//YOUTUBE

    Surely two of the most beautiful songs that never won !
