With less than two weeks until the song contest kicks off in Liverpool, San Marino’s Piqued Jacks have finally shared the official music video of their Eurovision song “Like An Animal”.

It’s incredible how biased wiwibloggs is.
They are talking about everything but not a single word about Marco Mengoni traveling around Europe in an preESC tour

He has eschewed ridiculousness and over-the-top nonsense in favor of sincerity and raw talent. And Wiwibloggs just aren’t having it.

Carpe Diem probably makes for better branding on condoms than Blood and Glitter.

I just realized this morning that I haven’t listened to any ESC2023 songs in more than two weeks — and I haven’t been NOT listening to my music any less. Yes, this year is particularly lackluster – but I didn’t realize it was that lackluster…..

I hope Joker Out will be giving away their new “merch” free of charge! A little extra in the goody bag.

In case that sounded creepy, what I mean is, this product will do more good by not charging for it.

Have Wild Youth gotten a new creative director yet, or will they still be using the last guy’s work? Time is ticking!

Well with two weeks left I don’t think they can hire anybody new..

They’ll just have to do it themselves. Christer takes credit for Bulgaria 2016, he says all that staging was done after the delegation arrived in Stockholm… so you never know.

Why four downvotes? It’s not an unreasonable question, is it?
