For y’all fans who don’t know what the OGAE (Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l’Eurovision) Song Contest is, here’s the scoop. It’s a competition in which all OGAE national clubs can enter the contest with an original song, which may or may not be linked to Eurovision, sung in one of the country’s official languages.

This year’s host was the OGAE club from Italy who won last year with Nina Zilli and her Sanremo entry “Per sempre”. The contest, which was held in the Italian city of Bologna, was huge. A total of 30 countries #joined them.

As you can see above, the contest was full of former Eurovision participants including Pastora Soler (Spain 2012), Sirusho (Armenia 2008), Lara Fabian (Luxembourg 1988), Deep Zone Project (Bulgaria 2008), Tamara Todevska (FYR Macedonia 2008), Vanna (Croatia 2001) and Helena Paparizou (Greece 2005 and Melodifestivalen 2014).

Spain won the event with Pastora Soler and her song “Te despertare” which is at number 5 in the Top 25 songs of 2013 by wiwibloggs.com. Spain took the throne with a 57-point lead over Great Britain’s Olly Murs and his song “Dear darlin'”. Third place belongs to Italy and its entry “Alice e il blu” by Annalisa.

Spain has now won the contest five times, passing both Italy and United Kingdom which have won four times. Que bueno, que bueno!

Poland and Slovenia finished last with null points. Ouch!

I love her, she is a great person and of course a great singer. I guess it will spend a lot of years for another singer like Pastora Soler for my country in Eurovision 🙁

Praying for Ruth Lorenzo this year!

Wow! When Pastora picks it up it’s just amazing. One of Europe’s best singers – ever.

Brava Pastora,podra gustar mas o menos,pero lo que es indiscutible es su calidad vocal pocas cantantes tienen esa voz portentosa y esa seguridad al cantar y de transmitir lo que se canta.

D – the best thing with recent French entries is that it’s JUST what they have stopped doing. Quality and results sometimes missmatch in ESC: During the history, many of the biggest hits are songs that did not win. I way more prefer French entries these days: original quality songs.

I find her very overrated. If you look at the ESC-song of instance. OK – she sings well. But the song sounds like 20 other euroballads, and quite dated. So contrived and the sort of song you seldom hear outside ESC. Typically G’son…

As for this song…same story…! Btw: The OGAE SC seems like a replay of former ESC / NF-singers sometimes. But also with some more “alternative” songs every now and then

Pastora deserved this win after she placed way too low at 10th position in ESC 2012. That song was definitly in my top 3

Not a good look for Poland, especially with them coming back to the actual contest. 🙁

Oh, and I’m really glad for Pastora. She deserved to win. I liked Italy and UK too.

So much talent in Colombia and we chose Doctor Krapula? Really bad choice. No wonder why they finished 23th.

God, I wish France would send songs like that to Eurovision, they’d do so much better. I hope I’m not being biased but my favourite song was the one from Sweden. Some other ones I liked are Armenia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Colombia. Poland did not deserve nul points and Spain didn’t deserve to win.
