If you look hard enough there’ll always be a link to Eurovision.Or at least that would seem to be the case. For who would have thought that critics’ favourite du jour, Lorde, was a fan of
boyband manband Blue? Speaking to “The Observer” she shared her thoughts on Blue’s “One Love”, the first song to ever catch her imagination.
That was a gem. I was always drawn to songs with that innate catchiness.
Aww, ain’t it sweet when one of the cool kids admits to liking a good dollop of manufactured pop. The lads in Blue sure were happy to read her comments and took to Twitter to share their apprecitaion.

However, Lorde’s musical tastes have changed somewhat in the intervening years (she was 6 when “One Love” was released):
I look to Kanye [West] for inspiration in a lot of things, and his ability to kind of reinvent and keep throwing curveballs with each record. He’s able to keep things interesting
Unfortunately, there’s no word on what she thought of Blue’s Eurovision effort “I Can”. Until she says otherwise, I think we should assume that she was a huge fan of it, and by default Eurovision. Agreed?
