Ah, it’s that time of year again…
I’ve caught snippets of the semi-finals this week and as usual it’s the normal mix of some mediocre tunes and some absolutely cracking numbers. Here are my top picks for who might do well in Saturday’s final.
Finland (for all the wrong reasons)
Ireland (though he needs to sing in tune this time)
Bonnie Tyler’s efforts for the United Kingdom are OK, but way too Radio 2 to win. If you pushed me to predict who will win, I would have to go for the bookie’s favourite, Denmark. That would make it the first Danish victory since this fantastic song in 2000.
It’s that modulated bridge followed by the key change. Works every time. They didn’t even need to stand up from their stools to win…
