The past two weeks I have been publishing reviews by Blogilkar's little review 6-pack incuding a Brit, an Irish living in Belgium, a Dutch, an Italian living in Sweden and a German living in the UK besides me, a Finn. Together we have some 175 years of Eurovision experience, inside and outside the bubble, as simple fans, or involved in all the process of selecting and promoting an entry, as an avid collector and knowing the Eurovision history by heart. As a blogger, record collector..... you name it. We have done it. And keep doing it.
We gave out our point as how we felt the songs, not based on how we think they will do in Stockholm.
With our votes all Big5+Sweden would be firmly in the final for a change, and even four of them in top-7! The first semifinal is stronger for us, as even three songs get higher scores than the last qualifier from semifinal two (Norway).
We gave out a total of 13 full ten points (Italy, Austria and France got two each)
We gave out six one pointers, Montenegro got three of them and San Marino two. San Marino was also the most divisive as besides those ones they also scored one nine pointer and two eights!
Time will tell how wrong or right we were..... Enjoy all the reviews by scrolling down the blog....
