Who do they need to show Miki’s armpit hair? Is that part of the 6 people he will put on stage? It’s not even a sexy looking armpit hair LOL. Maybe this is his tactic to distract Bilal LOL

France has a good song I just have the feeling that everyone don’t like Bilal and his song just because Seemone didn’t win. But to me Roi is a better song than Tous les deux too boring and forgettable in a Grand Final. Roi still an average song to ESC and more it could be a very good song and I really don’t think that it will finished on the right scoreboard . Just try to appreciate the song and the message and forget the annoying fanbase. Especially to the spanish fans who criticize the french televote while they always… Read more »

I just don’t like the song. There is no hate or anything like that behind it. Nothing against him or France.

Yes no problem I can understand that, but I usually find there is a general negative wave against France this year while it isn’t by far the worst song we have seen in ESC

people hating on spain 😀 wow, so unexpected 😀
look, blaming the things on ~ spanish trolls~ could be understandable for some of the previous spanish entries, but EXACTLY THIS YEAR it isn’t 😀
Eurovision fans from all over the world love La venda, the other thing is that people don’t want to see that and just blame it on whatever comes to their minds 🙂

Don’t take too seriously these comment threads on Wiwibloggs, it’s annoying part of Eurovision fandom, full of negative people.

Spain is gonna be hated always, it’s doesn’t matter if they send a good or a bad song, a pop, rock or ballad sonf. Is like something intrinsic within eurofans. In the other hand, countries like Italy always gonna be loved and overrated.

I was just about to upvote this comment because it does feel like that with spain sometimes, and then I saw the last sentence about Italy … in my opinion, they are never overrated, if anything they are underrated by the juries ( e.g. il volo 2015 or Meta and Moro 2018)
plus their songs are usually songs that win or do well at sanremo, so you can’t deny those are quality songs

T’inquiète, je suis certain que Bilal a bcp de fans en Belgique et dans l’ouest de la Suisse. Ça lui donne au moins quelques votes. Au moins vous n’aurez pas 0 point 😉

Je m’en fiche, je ne milite pas pour Bilal. On verra bien le résultat final. 🙂 Je n’aime juste pas les haters, la mauvaise foi, et les fans qui deviennent ultra (hello Spain), quel que soit leur bord. C’est l’E.S.C., pas la W.W. III…

Don’t worry, it’s just Wiwi poll. Blackbird and Verona, among others were also high in their polls, and you know how they ended! Right now many people are just pi**ed their favourite didn’t win.

In Blackbird and Verona’s defences, they were both within the popular votes top 10 (Verona was 6th if I re call). It was the jury that killed them and prevented them from making the final.

I did really like Verona and Blackbird was decent but I wasn’t over the top obsessed with those songs, for what its worth.

I really love Miki’s song but if there will be another uptempo song in the contest with more heavier beats, La venda might be in danger

The problem with the Spanish song is that you can find it fresh and fun, but I can assure you this is that kind of songs that the more you listen, the more you start hating it. All the momentum will be long faded away by the time of the Grand Final.

that may be true, but … A LOT OF PEOPLE… don’t want to say any % … but if I had to I would say ..maybe80? %of the people watching the grand final hear the song for the first time… so I think that will be a + for a Spanish song this year… I mean I loved it the minute I have heard it, I hope a lot more people will do too 🙂

Already tired of all these stupid comments. You can’t say Spain is winning the poll only because of Spanish fans and juste because you don’t like the song. I’m from Belgium and I find “La Venda” is by far the best song for the moment. It’s catchy and Miki is really nice. And please Albania’s fans, stop trying to sell Jonida’s song as if it was a masterpiece and telling to people who don’t like that they are stupids… that’s the best way to create a propaganda anti Albania 😉 PS: to be honnest, none of those 3 songs is… Read more »

I don’t see any of these songs doing well in the end. They are all ok, the kind of songs that you like but don’t vote for.
If i had to pick one it would be Spain.

I voted for him from Armenia, so what you are talking guys, it’s not that every single vote came from spanish fans.
And also, OMG, how handsome he is!!!

If these three were facing a Eurovision vote, Albania would win the jury vote, Spain would win the televote and France would either come last overall or pull a Jamala and win.

Just ignore Spain’s result in the forthcoming wiwi-polls and there you’ll have a fair result. Apparently Bilal’s fans haven’t found out yet about wiwibloggs polls lol.

Actually, I feel like Spain’s lead (unlike last year) is well deserved. It’s catchy and it’s well sung. I’m not a Spain stan usually and I’m sure it won’t be on my top for long but this absolutely makes sense for the three currently revealed entries. Bilal won’t get very far at Eurovision without a lot of vocal training, at least with juries. Also, I find “Roi” to be a one-dimensional song that leaves little to the audience to interpret and find themselves in. There needs to be subtext and it’s all just text. There are some cute metaphors to… Read more »

Same. Im not over the moon crazy over the three songs but I voted for La Venda. It’s charming. I don’t dislike Albania either since she has a great voice and the song is unique but at the moment I foresee it as a border qualifier.

Sorry I don’t like albanias song this year at all. France is OK and I think Spain have a really good song. I typically don’t like songs like that but its a song that’s great for audiences and is made for a stage ?
