You're crazy if you're not crazy about Eurovision

Eurovision 2012 Baku

Who has won Eurovision since I began to watch it…


I also thought to make a personal top of the countries that have had entries in the last 15 years. I decided to choose my first 5 countries most eligible to win every year and to count the times each country would be in my list. This is what has resulted. Read from pink through blue to yellow.

So, my favourite country in ESC (since I watch it regularly) would be SWEDEN. ISRAEL is the runner-up. Third place is shared by RUSSIA and ROMANIA. The rest are:
4th. NORWAY, FRANCE, CROATIA, SERBIA (+- MONTENEGRO)
5th. SLOVENIA, MACEDONIA, GREECE, TURKEY, ESTONIA
6th. BELGIUM, GERMANY, HUNGARY, ALBANIA, UKRAINE, BOSNIA
7th. ICELAND, PORTUGAL, DENMARK, NETHERLANDS, LATVIA, BELARUS, ITALY, CYPRUS, BULGARIA

If questions, I used Paint.NET (free) for creating each pic and PhotoScape (free) for the final stuff.

Save Rosia Montana ~ Maia Morgenstern


On a non-Eurovision topic…

Here I posted a recent emotional brilliantly accomplished advertisement regarding the gold exploitation from Rosia Montana, Romania, an abuse of a former government which will only result in an ecological catastrophe in the area.

Maia Morgenstern says:

“Good afternoon. I am Maia Morgenstern and I want to make a donation to those who really need gold. There you go, sirs, all my gold. Just leave us alone”.

Eurovision Final Poll!


I won’t post any Semifinal poll. A few days before the Contest begins I will calculate the rating each song has according to your votes given in the individual polls you find by clicking on each flag on the right sidebar and shall do a top 10 for each semi.

Soon I shall post my top 10-12-15 – we’ll see, I love a lot of songs – but before that, I ask you to vote your 5 (or 4,3,2,1) favourites to win Eurovision Song Contest 2012.  Besides my top, I will post a brief comment for every entry in the 57th edition of our favourite song contest!


UK was lucky enogh with Sir Engelbert Humperdinck


An entry I would enjoy was the last think I expected from UK this year. The melody itself is a jewel with a strong Mediterranean flavour which appealed to me from the first second. On the other hand, his performance seems a bit of a cliche dating back in the `60s.

I’m afraid we’ll have London 2013.I myself should find this a place in my top 10.

My rating: 12/12
