Eurovision 2021: Eyes open on the odds!

Ok, ok. I know what you are thinking: 'Never listen to the odds, everything can change until May'. True. But we all love to check the odds now and then, especially for a music competition like Eurovision that we all love and follow religiously (and sometimes too dramatically!). This is why I have decided today to analyze with you the odds 'bottom five', or at least what bettors consider as the worst entries in this year's Eurovision. Unjust? Unfair? A huge mistake we'll all regret the day of the finale? Let's start the drama... Estonia: Uku Suviste - The Lucky One (35th place) A pop ballad brought to us by the Estonian singer Uku Suviste. A 'cry of pain' caused by the end of a love story through which the artist explains how even the most beautiful and intense relationships can c...

Why we love Senhit – San Marino’s FREAKY queen

From her first appearance on Dusseldorf's stage in 2011 to her great return to the contest in 2020 (and then again in 2021), she's conquered our hearts with her warm smiles, her powerful voice and, let's be honest, her always different, unique and never boring outfits. We are obviously talking of the undisputed queen of San Marino (yes Valentina, 'Maybe' you have tried too many times and dropped the crown!), 'Her Freakiness' , Senhit. After an unfair non-qualification in 2011 with the beautiful pop-ballad 'Stand By' (for which, by the way, I am still crying out for revenge), she accepted to come back and 'battle', again, for one of the smallest countries in the world, that has an history whne it comes to competing in this Contest: San Marino. Let's be clear: a returning artist f...

Road To Eurovision: Italy, Portugal and San Marino’s Entries.

What a week for Eurovision Lovers like us! Three entries, three new songs, and 2 almost unexpected entries to the competition in Rotterdam. The very first big surprise was given to us by Sanremo 2021 - the Festival of Italian Song - that crowned Måneskin as the winners of this edition with their song "Zitti e Buoni". Since a few years now, this Italian selection also decides who will represent the country - that almost won ESC in 2019 with Soldi by Mahmoud - on the stage of Eurovision contest. Måneskin come almost as unexpected winners because of their music background which is rock, explicit and real and goes far from the classical pop, melodic song that Sanremo got all Italians used to.  This group will surely rock the stage in Rotterdam putting the audience to choose which rock t...

Sanremo 2021: the list of singers who could possibly represent Italy to Eurovision 2021

Festival di Sanermo is the biggest songs competition in Italy that has a tradition of over 60 years, and since the return of Italy to Eurovision, is also the contest that decides who will represent the country to Eurovision. Twenty-six singers - the so called "bigs" - will compete on the stage of the Sanremo Festival between 2nd and 6th March 2021 - still it not clear whether the competition will be only streamed and no audience will be allowed in the theatre or if it will be a "business as usual" event. It is a tradition now that the winner of this festival will represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest, even though we've had an exception so far, where Francesca Michielin - placed 2nd - represented Italy that year as the winners - which felt too old for such a competition - decid...
