  1. I just got back in. Aw well done Malta, very deserved in my opinion! Sad to see Ireland not do a bit better, but it was quite a decent line-up this year. It’s definitely moving away from its old image of squeaky out of tune little kids in ra-ra dresses and shorts.

  2. Are Ireland always going to be singing in Irish, or can they change to English if they want. When the language rule was in place, Ireland always benefited as did Malta of being able to sing in English. Think it’d be wise of them to give it a rethink.

  3. Ireland should have sung in English. You have to play to your strengths and since Ireland has no neighbours or Diaspora they need all the help they can get. Singing in English is of course no guarantee of success, but it can be a key advantage.

  4. BTW, I loved the interval acts. Each of them were extremely entertaining adn unique with their own flavor. Well done Bulgaria, great looking and organized all around!

    • loved wheres my dress, and the sort of techno dance thing.

      The beat boxing will indeed talented and skilled was a bit boring to watch.

      But your great Bulgaria did a great job hosting. I misjudged them.

  5. Watched the show Saturday night (using the Dutch stream and not that ridiculous one from the official channel) without having heard the songs beforehand, and Malta was my personal winner as well! It was a great song that ticked all the boxes for a winner. It’s also good to see some youthful energy in the winner after two ballads and that crazy good dubstep song from Ukraine in 2012. Armenia’s close second is a little incomprehensible to me, but oh well, it was personally a little meh for me.

    The other songs I liked were the Georgian, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and Albanian songs. All of them except Albania deserved to do better (5th was a pleasant surprise). The rest were forgettable, and Australia and San Marino’s shouty messes were lowlights of the evening.
