  1. i hope they’ll be back with a good song for once
    last year they had a masterpiece in their NF, PIN’s “Pin Lady” but they withdrew which is insanely sad… the NF was good indie stuff (Nefer were my favorite, Cashbox was great, “Love me” was good but deserved a much stronger performance) and they ended up chosing the OGAE chosen boreness, i was mad at Poland
