My Eurovision Song Contest 2012 Predictions
Tomorrow is the final of Eurovision Song Contest 2012. I’d like to play octopus Paul and try to predict who is going to win the contest and who is going to hit the top 10.
First off, here is the list of Eurovision 2012 finalists. And here are my predictions:
♫ Winner ♫ – SWEDEN
Sweden has a most original item, besides it’s been the favorite all along. So, I think most people are going to vote for Sweden.
Besides, I really like the nordic image Loreen cuts and the geometry of her dance. Enjoy!
♪ Place 2 ♪ – TURKEY
Now, the most frustrating place ever, the second place. It is frustrating, because you’re almost number 1, but not really.
I think it will be Turkey, just like that. 😉
Place 3 – CYPRUS
A very light and sexy dance. For some reason the style reminds me of Ricky Martin. They also use sacred geometrical symbols in the background. And the singer has an unusual voice. Number 3!
Place 4 – ROMANIA
A very summery song. But I can’t help thinking of my last year’s favorite, Spain, which was better, I think (cry).
Place 5 – NORWAY
From hot Cyprus and Romania to chilly Norway. A nice mix of electronic and arabic music. However, I’m having a de ja vu and seeing Eric Saade. Are you?
Place 6 – MALTA
There is no particular reason why I think Malta will be number 6, I just do. The song is very pleasant and unassuming, even though some part of it sounds like that of Sweden. 😉
Place 7 – ITALY
An energetic jazzy tune. She reminds me of Zaz, lol. I love how she sings in Italian towards the end 🙂
Place 8 – UNITED KINGDOM
Well, some people may find this surprising. Engelbert Humperdinck is a mystery contestant to some, because the UK, as one of the founding countries of Eurovision, doesn’t have to do semi-finals. Nevertheless, I think Engelbert Humperdinck has many fans in and outside Britain, who will vote for him and secure him the eights position.
Place 9 – UKRAINE
The Whitney Houston of Ukraine. 🙂 I like the mix, do you?
Place 10 – BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA
A great solo performance by Maya Sar. I think most Eastern Europeans would understand the lyrics at least to some extent.
That’s it. Now, who is your favorite?
