Euroviisut - third radio preview
YLE played the next six songs in various channels and here's what I think... This week we have fragile voiced Johanna with two wonderful songs that are not for Eurovision of these days, shame. Kentala proves he was one time lucky two years ago when his Deck of cards came 2nd, that was one groovy song. This year he has nothing to offer. Lovex is a pre-contest favourite with a huge fan base, hit single in Germany and one good solid song and join Hanna and Humane as a favourite at this point.
Johanna Kurkela: Olet kaunein uneni****
Beautiful ballad, romantic lyrics and very nice indeed. But no chance with televote.
Annoying half-Rednex thing including banjo.... good grief!
Lovex: Anyone anywhere****
Symphonic intro and catchy radio heavy. One to watch out in the final! Hope he manages to provide decent vocals live though...
Johanna Kurkela: Jossain metsäin takana****
A little poppier than the first one but very beautiful, this one, too. Nice lyrics, fragile vocals and all very tender.
Kentala: Left my heart behind**
Starts nicely but goes nowhere and very boring already half way through.... yawn.
Lovex: Wild and violent**
Not even anywhere near as good as the first one.
You can hear these and all the previous songs on YLE's website: http://www.yle.fi/eurovision/main.php?id=1944
