My Eurovision Song Contest Predictions for 2013
It’s this time of year… again! The grand final for Eurovision annual Song Contest will take place tomorrow nigh in Swedish Malmö. As had been predicted last year, Sweden won Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and is now hosting the show on its shores.
26 contestants will be competing for the title of the artist who sings the best song of the year. Can you guess who will be number 1? Let’s try!
Well, even though Denmark seems to be everybody’s favorite this year, I’m not sure if it will eventually come first. My guess is that it will come second, since the song gets a big heavy on the ears past first couple of minutes.
♫ Winner ♫ – NORWAY
I like the futuristic character that Margaret Berger cuts this year, do you? I think the song is really good. Many consider Norway Denmark’s biggest competitor this year. We’ll see 😉
Place 2 – Denmark
After all, I think Denmark will come second. Let’s see if my gut feeling which goes against everybody else’s predictions is right 🙂
Place 3 – Estonia
They say it’s a lot of lyrical songs this year, and one is by Brigit from Estonia. If you ask me, Estonia has been bringing really great songs to Eurovision each year (remember last year’s Kuula?). Let’s see what votes it gets this time. Good luck, Brig!
Place 4 – Georgia
Again, I’m having a de ja vu. These guys kind of remind me of the couple who won Eurovision for Azerbaijan in 2011 🙂 Anyhow, it’s a nice song, enjoy!
Place 5 – Moldova
Aliona Moon has an original item this year, perhaps worth the 5th place. The name of the song in English is “The Thousand”
Place 6 – Iceland!
Sorry, guys, perhaps I’m not being objective here, but this guy just looks like he walked out of some fairy-tale. Did you know that Iceland is a place where many people still believe in fairies (according to some survey).
“I’m alive”, sings Eythor Ingi. Enjoy!
Place 7 – Russia
Dina Garipova, the Russian contestant of Tatar origin might be the lucky number 7, or may higher – who knows? A beautiful voice this girl has, by the way 🙂
Place 8 – Italy
As a founding country of Eurovision, Italy doesn’t have to go through semi finals each year. Sometimes this backfires at “privileged” contestants and they get poorer votes than they deserve.
Well, Italy’s Marco Mengoni has a really pleasant song this year – check it out.
Place 9 – United Kingdom
OK, the UK did this again: they’re sending a well-established singer to Eurovision yet another time. Welcome Bonnie Tyler!.
Place 10 -Sweden
They say when you sing at home, you shine and are glorious just because of the sheer fact. Sweden, the host of this year’s Eurovision, will also be in the top 10, I think.
All right, did you enjoy Loreen’s opening accords playing at the beginning of each item this year?
Actually, it would have been cool if Sweden won Eurovision in 2014, because in 2014 it will be 40 years since Swedish ABBA totally stole the show at Eurovision 1974, followed by years and years of ABBA releasing one hit after another.
