    6. Ann-Louise Hansson – Kärleken finns kvar

  6. Considering how much I liked Laud, Letay or Taynna last effort (not her first), this will definitely be the best NF again (sorry to the A Dal fans here, I’m a Vidbir kind of guy lol)

  7. I’ll wait for the semi to get interested in Ukraine – I mean they are all about the show right? Really along with Greece, Turkey and Azerbeijan one of the countries that brought the contest back to life after the dire ’90s – really always put in a strong effort whether one likes the song or not (tho last year was kind of a mess IMHO).

    • I used to think “meh” of them, or as “trying too hard to impress” and while 2003 was a disaster, 2004 was nothing to scream about as it felt “nothing different than the two previous winners” but then politics caught up with the contest… I liked 2005-2008 entries, but also had something against all of them, so it was never a love affair and I simply hated 2009… 2010 was strong but 2011 an empty song that stole its good place with the show and that anchored the idea that Ukraine was the gimmick master (2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014…) I hated 2012 with a passion and never warmed up to “Gravity” per se… 2016 is when it picked up for me really: I loved all of their last three performances and songs, all in my top 12 of their years! but that’s also because of three great NF

      • I totally get your “too hard to impress”; some years like the porn act with the roman soldiers in the spinning wheels and of course tictoc (even I can sing better) was waaaay over the top. But I do give them credit for trying over the sleepwalking things GER, UK, ESP, MAC etc. often send.

  8. They say this is most likely KAZKA’S entry for Vidbir 2019:
