Our top 10 Eurovision 2016 entries: part two
As if Ivan performing starkers with live wolves wasn’t enough, we’ve got five more entries to look out for in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest…
Estonia: Jüri Pootsmann – Play
Jüri is a handsome crooner with a brooding song. If we were voting on suits alone, Estonia would win – Jüri looks sharp.
Romania: Ovidiu Anton – Moment Of Silence
All together now!
In the darkest nights feel the power in you
Take a moment of silence and fight for the truth
Fight for the truth!
YES!!!! SING, OVIDIU!!!
Could this be the winner?
San Marino: Serhat – I Didn’t Know
This is what Eurovision is all about. Sexy, dulcet tones over a great little funky number. This is one we’re looking forward to hearing live. Just how low can he go?
Ukraine: Jamala – 1944
United Kingdom: Joe and Jake – You’re Not Alone
As ever, the United Kingdom is sending a song that just won’t be appreciated by the rest of Europe in the way it should be. We’ve got ‘oh oh oh’s, some ‘woah’s and follow up ‘I, I, I’ with ‘sky, sky, sky’. It’s a bit (a lot) One Direction-y. And, you know what, it’s actually pretty good. We’re up against some tough competition, namely Belarus and Estonia, but if the great voting public could ignore the United Kingdom’s terrible political history, maybe, just maybe, we could win.
