Fans have been able to listen for approximately one minute each to the 7 songs in the second semi final.
I was slightly more impressed with the 7 songs in this semi final after hearing them for the first time – still I cannot see an instant hit for me.
Here is my rankings
7th – ALLYAWAN
Not at all my kind of music
6th – ETZIA
Expected more of this song from seeing the title. I like her dress, especially the sleeves
5th – DISMISSED
Sort of sound like The Ark and could surprise because of how they look and because of the gender issues they are highlighting. Conchitta has competition.
4th – BENJAMIN INGROSSO
He looks better than he sings and the song does very little for me
3rd – LISA AJAX
Interesting title “I don’t give A” and people will try and hear more
2nd – ROGER PONTARE
His 2000 “When spirits are calling my name” really grew on me and this could have the same effect
1st – MARIETTE
We had ” A million voices” in Eurovision and easily could have “A million years” this time around. Good song but I think both Thomas Gson and Peter Bostrom have composed better songs.
