Listening to the studio version now since I haven’t been able to watch Dora. I like it! I’m bopping to it. Wish it was in Croatian, but I guess we can’t have everything.

Okay, Croatia seems to have regional juries like Portugal. Albina seems to have topped the jury vote ahead of Bernarda and Nina.

Albina slayed Dora. Others might as well just go home now before the votes are even in

Okay, the stream for Dora worked. Croatia has some good options this year. Nina Kraljic was good, very dramatic, I didn’t quite get the pole dancing, but I liked the song. My other favourite would probably be Albina, well performed, very groovy, I liked it. When it comes to the disco tunes, I guess it’s between Ella and ToMa for me, Mia’s song was a little underwhelming in comparison. Eric and Brigita are perhaps a little too niche, but I liked them as well. So Nina or Albina it is for me, the one that loses will go straight to… Read more »

I am enjoying Dora very much. Not a boring moment so far. Very little talk. Twelves songs in, I have one disappointment, one nice surprise and one big like.

No, it was song number 3. Ella with “Come this Way”. The live performance was confusing – static and not smiling – but I looooved the song and she looked very pretty.

It was boring and sounded just like last year. I don’t know why everyone is drooling over her.

Forgive me since I’ve never watched MGP before, but why do some entries get to be pre-qualified for the final while others do not?

I guess it is because “they are better”. They had the same system last year. Does your stream work?

I haven’t checked but I plan on waiting until their final.

Do the pre-qualified have more MGP or music industry experience or something?

Tonight’s an interesting choice. Despite my awkward past with reviewing Croatian entries, their final is of genuine interest this year, and HRT seems to be reasonably open to sharing it (for a change). However, Norway’s heat contains a potential winner of ESC, and Sweden’s Heat is going to be very competitive and could spring some surprise results. I don’t think anyone can go wrong tonight – all three shows look great. Enjoy. 🙂

Jokes aside, “Walking in my sleep” is a legit great track, hopefully the performance will be on par with the studio version.

MGP – Imerika is way better than overrated Keiino so hope she wins.

Melodifestivalen – grandmas would be nice, Dotter pretty good song but it’s no Bulletproof, not a fan, will be eaten alive by Dotter fans, sorry. Anton song sounds good but he wasn’t singing live, so have to wait and see. Either way would put from snipets
1. Grandmas
2. Anton
3. Dotter

Dora – for me between Bernarda & Nina Kraljic

Very interesting day and good luck to all of you ??

I agree, Dora will likely be the best one in three years. 🙂

I also agree that TuVeia are potential ESC winners. 😉

Yeah, but the song this year seems to be even weakier. Lucky enough, Latvia is in the SF2 so Samanta most likely will qualify.
