The winners’ press conference went on without much excitement but the Jedward made up for all the others. The journalists and “journalists” (you know who you are) didn’t have much to ask and makes me wonder what the purpose of them there is? If you get accredited as a journalist, do your job!
Anyways, Estonia got number 8 for the final, after Hungary, Ireland and Sweden so we have four up tempo show numbers neck to neck followed by Greece and Russia. Will they eat each other out? That’s good news for France and Italy following them!
Romania picked number 17 between Germany and Austria. Moldova got number 15 after United Kingdom and before Germany, that makes another row of songs that is hard to predict how they effect each other.
Ireland got number six between Hungary and Sweden and in the before mentioned row of up tempo songs. Maybe not so great for them.
Bosnia-Herzegovina got number 2 and Denmark number 3. For some reason I was sure Bosnia-Herzegovina would follow Finland. We will have a rather slow start for the show and I was hoping we would have got something more different to follow Finland than those two. But even if number one slot isn’t quite that unlucky as number two, and three for that matter, I think their chances are gone.
Austria got number 18, Ukraine number 23, and Slovenia number 20 and all seemed rather happy with their slot. And indeed their chances seem have increased with that.
Sweden was left at number 7 in the troubled line of songs.
So, it is a very interesting draw indeed. France probably sticks out like a needle in this pack so is it France’s year after all? Or will Finland’s charms keep until the end?
