  1. Well I can safely say I won’t be watching, I find it somehow scary and kind of nauseous to watch kids singing in such shows especially in a competitive way, maybe it’s a reaction to years of Spanish reaction to singing kids in Spain, like they shoud be part of the singing culture and we have to endure them, in various guises, over many years! (eg Spain 79) blaaa!!

  2. Due to my big workload I haven’t been able to follow jesc closely this year. I took some time to listen to the songs and the level is in general elevated, even georgia dropped the big tasteless gimmicks.

    Given the new 100 % jury voting system I would say the most likely winners are Poland and (again) Malta.

  3. Apparently San Marino came up with an interesting proposal to solve the “televoting being the average of televoting of neighbouring countries” situation that caused their displeasure last year :

    Thet propose to set up a mock “televoting” where numerous common people (non music proffesionals) would gather up and vote for their favourites presumably through the eurovision app or some other method and that would be submitted as the televoting result.

    Not a bad idea imo.

  4. hey to everyone here. in Catalan and from Catalonia, regalo petons (I send kisses), and I miss you and comments :-)

  5. to consider a famous Catalan song as opposed to a famous Spanish song, unfortunately they are still unequal, in the end above would be considered anti-Spanish, thus am very confused myself!

  6. I’ve kinda grown out of Junior Eurovision, but from the songs I’ve heard Russia and Italy slay the pack.

  7. Jon Henrik Fjällgren is due to make a comeback at MF!I hope he’ll be bringing a great entry again.

  8. Will anyone be following JESC this afternoon ? It’s at 16:00 CET this year.
