The Wiwi Jury: Eurovision 2012

The Wiwi Jury: Eurovision 2012

The Wiwi Jury—that’s Wiwi Bloggs, Vebooboo Nadella, Meows Kitty and Deban Aderemi—will listen to and review all 42 Eurovision entries prior to the first semi-final on May 22. Each member of the jury offers their critique of each song, and then awards it a score out of 10. The four scores are then averaged for the Wiwi Jury Verdict. The jury consists of an American, an Australian, a Brit and a Finn—so we are truly international. Below you can check out the latest rankings. Just click on the country to read the review.

As always, we will be making our annual Eurovision prediction. The Wiwi Jury Verdict will count for half of the score, while the other half consists of votes earned in our polls for the semi-finals and final.

The scores below represent the raw data. We have re-centered the scores in a separate table. The re-centered scores represent the final standings.

    I hope the winner is about the song ; the uniqueness of the song, and the level of difficulty of the song, that’s means no only catchy song but also need a singing skill. Some entries like Albania, Azerbaijan, France, Sweden, Serbia, Spain are the samples. They all need singing skill to perform. But Still I could not decide who deserves to win before the final on Saturday.

    Apples and oranges, melons and artichokes. I thought I would post my personal top ten (as best I can decide) before open rehearsals start. It’s not based on any particular criteria of quality or impact, and is of course far from settled. Here goes …
    1 Iceland
    2 Albania
    3 France
    4 Spain
    5 Finland
    6 Ukraine
    7 Sweden
    8 Montenegro
    9 Serbia
    10 Croatia
