Josh – learn to behave…good luck! I agree with Uorated. Nothing wrong with being gay, but the gay/ESC link is SO dull…a stereotype. Such a cliche…and not true!! 🙂

“Songbird” is awesome and Ellen Benediktson will win MelFest one day. No complaints otherwise.

Linus is an absolutely stunning man as far as looks go (you should’ve shown the whole shot there!), and he’s a really strong vocalist too. I’d love to see him in Melfest again.

And of course Fireman Danny was awesome too 😉

This looks a bit “teen girl fan euphoric” (which is OK), or too “gayish” (less OK….)

The point is good music….strong, original musically rich entries (i.e. not schlagers….!) not if they are sung by males or not….
