  1. The Czech Republic is incredibly strong. Barbora Mochowa is my favorite, very artistic. Don’t understand the hype for Benny Cristovao, sounds like what would become a one hit wonder song in the US. Pam, Olga, and Karelll all have decent entries too.

  2. Thomas Løseth feat. Erika Norwich – “Vertigo” – This is a nice ballad. It’s pretty by the numbers but it’s just dramatic enough to be interesting without being too over the top. It won’t be my winner surely, but I think it’s good.

    Alexandru – “Pink Jacket” – The way this song started I instantly knew I wouldn’t be a fan. I was wondering how he’d incorporate the title into the song, and wow is this song really just about buying a pink jacket and thinking you look good. This is so cheap I don’t like it.

    Sie Gubba – “Kjære Du” – Why do I feel like I’ve heard this song lol. I think the chorus reminds me of “Guld och gröna skogar.” It’s like fun for what it is but obviously I don’t want this in Rotterdam. I don’t think I’m really the target demographic either lol.

    Kristin Husøy – “Pray For Me” – Oh hell yes this one is nice. I think the chorus could be better, but I do like this one. I don’t think it’s a winner, but it’s very enjoyable. She seems like she has a strong voice too so I think she’ll do great live.

    Kristin or Thomas to the final please.

  3. DMGP songs are as usually lame…

  4. As for the Danish semifinalists, I enjoyed Jamie Talbot and Kenny Duerlund in Southern Denmark, SamSara in Eastern Denmark, and I didn’t really like anyone in Northern Denmark.

    I expect this will be a similar case to Norway though, where the winner will be clearly one of the prequalified acts. I would totally be okay with Jamie, Kenny, or SamSara winning it all though and going to Rotterdam, I liked those songs a lot.

  5. My faves in Denamrk are both in Eastern Denmark:
    1. SamSara
    2. Ben & Tan
