      • We have news today!The Latvian songs arte online,Austria announced the 5 names that will take part in their final and we now know the songtitles for Roberto Bellarosa(Belgium).

        • Thanks for the report, Dimitri. I have listened through the Latvian hopefuls, and that was quite boring, if you ask me. Way too many bland radio pop songs. There were a few though, that catched my attention a little more than others. My early favourite is “Cold heart” and I hope her live voice is as strong as here. “Sad trumpet”, “When you’re with me”, “Never let me go” and “I need a hero” are the other ones I liked. The rest was bland or bad. Especially “I am who I am” and “Here we go” deserves a big boo.

          Good luck, Latvia.

          • You are welcome! :)
            On the Latvian hopefuls: I quite like their line-up this year.At least it’s much better than their 2012 selection.The songs that stand out as the most distinctive are “Sad trumpet”,”Tirpini” and “When you’re with me”.I also like “I need a hero”,”Give me a try” and “One” because it sticks to your head.The bottom 3 are “The one”,”Hey,hey” and “Fool in love”.
            They are mostly average pop songs with a few exceptions.Good luck.

            • I also quite like “Let the night belong to the lovers”.It’s romantic and makes me feel relaxed but it’s not the song you would send to esc IMO.

            • First now did I realise that all songs are in English. Pity, of course. Or, should I say, everyone but “Tirpini” which is sung in a language I’m not sure of. I did somehow like “Hey, hey” but if I know myself right, that’s probably because of the bagpipe intro. :)

            • Yes.23 out of 24 are in English.I don’t really understand the language Tirpini” is in.
              Since the other day we were talking about Eleftheria Eleftheriou,here is her new song.Quite different from what we’ve heard from her till now.I like it.

            • That was a pleasant song. If it only had contained a bit more passion, like the great “Panayia mou, panayia mou” it would’ve been great. Greece should try something in that way in the future, but I’m afraid that they have been strucked in the “shake it”-genre.

        • So the Latvian semifinalists’ names aren’t being revealed yet. Well, I happen to know that PeR sings ‘Sad Trumpet.’ They posted it on their Youtube page, and I like it although not as much as last year’s ‘Disco Superfly.’

          I haven’t listened to the rest of the bunch yet. I’ll get around to it soon.

        • For Austria~

          (I will not comment them since I’ve decided to not comment esc for now on this site, but I thought this would help the few curious enough about the five Austrian performers)
