Well Eurovision is over and it was super fabulous! This was the first year I got to watch it and it was incredibly exciting! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time their were divvying out the points! The surprise winner this year was Azerbaijan: Ell and Nikki with their hit, Running Scared. When I heard this song for the first time in the semi-finals I had to admit that it was super catchy, but I didn’t think that it would win.
Sweden was robbed! While watching the finals, I put two countries on my list for the victory: Sweden and Hungary. Hungary did – to my surprise – incredibly poor, with only 53 points, and it looked like Sweden was going to take the victory but ended up in 3rd with 185.
Georgia was another country I really enjoyed. Eldrine’s One More Day was pretty badass and she did surprisingly well, coming in with 110 points.
I know that many of these songs are going to be popular in my house this summer. Sweden and Eric Saade’s Popular as well as Hungary’s Katie Wolf and What About My Dreams are definitely going to be summer dance hits. And I know Lithuania with Evelina Sašenko’s C’est Ma Vie is going to be my Eurovision ballade. It was a magnificent show and I can’t wait for 2012 in Azerbaijan!
