FINLAND: WINDOWS95MAN WITH NO RULES TO EUROVISION


Well. Well well well..... I must admit I said when this was released "Wait and see Finns will vote this to Malmö!" In between it looked quite, even very unlikely considering polls and streams and charts etc but here we are. Last with international juries (but Uk gave them 12!), first in televote they beat Sara Siipola to second place. To be honest, I never cared for the video but I had grown a little liking for the song and on stage it came alive and was just over the top in a good way. So I'm not angry nor sad, just amused. 

As for the name, they said they have a name in  store if Ebu doesn't approve Windows95man. On the other hand it's a product no longer in market and therefor Yle for example can use it now and back in the 2017 New Year's celebration party where he performed. 

Otherwise the show was a bit underwhelming. Käärijä and Erika Vikman totally stole the show, as did always lovely Katri Helena with her 1979 entry Katson sineen taivaan. I read Erika wanted to do UMk with this Ruoska, but Käärijä was too tired to do it all over again. What a banger entry THAT would have been! The presenters were maybe better than I expected, especially Benjamin that I didn't have high hopes but the stage was very simple. Was that a screen behind the stage and not a LED?

As for the voting a total of 224.477 votes were recorded. 1,9 million viewers watched the show - 1,2 million live on television and 0,8 million so far on demand.

1. Windows95man feat. Henri Piispala - No rules (jury 28 + televote 285)  313
(Total televotes 72.506)
2. Sara Siipola - Paskana (70 + 203)  273
(Total televotes 51.629)
3. Mikael gabriel feat nublu - Vox populi (42 + 136) 178
(Total televotes 34.589)
4. Cyan Kicks - dancing with demons (48 + 80) 128
(Total televotes 20.382)
5. Jesse Markin - Glow (34 + 76) 110
(Total televotes 19.888)
6. Sexmane - Mania (34 + 74) 108
(Total televotes 18.856)
7. Sini Sabotage - Kuori mua (38 + 27) 65
(Total televotes 6.868)

The juries went all over the place giving full marks to five different songs! 
Sara got 12 from Spain, Luxemburg, Slovenia
Sini got from Armenia
Jesse from Sweden
MGN from Ukraine
Windows95man from the UKWindows95 man got also flat zero from Spain, Slovenia and Sweden, while Sara was in Top-3 in every country.

Opening act: Kuumaa/Benjamin - Ylivoimainen/Goida mut
Katri Helena - Katson sineen taivaan
Käärijä / Erika Vikamn - Ruoska
Käärijä - Cha cha cha

ESC 2016 WISH LIST: MARGARET FOR POLAND

Małgorzata Jamroży aka Margaret has also been tipped for Eurovision and apparently she did turn it down but she'd be perfect. She's got a look and persona you can't unnotice nor forget, she's got hit songs, she has been voted or nominated for everything from Trendy artist to the Hope of the Year, Fashion Icon and Glamour Woman of the year besides the usual best video, song, album, debut..... Oh she's also a fashion designer! She's very clever with social medias and would surely use it to her advantage if selected for Stockholm 2016. Her debut album is titled Add the blonde , do we need to say more? Except it includes mostly Swedish written pop tunes like Tell me how are ya , Wasted , Start a fire and Heartbeat . And of course her debut single and internationally noticed Thank you very much that you can enjoy below with all its anti-textil feel. I think she's Eurovision perfection, she's cheeky and fun, can we have her?

ESC 2016 BELARUS: NAKED WITH WOLVES?

Today's funniest Eurovision related story comes from Belarus. Some sources claim Ivan wants to perform on stage naked and with live wolf or wolves. It surely would be a first on Eurovision stage! We have seen some forgotten underwear over the years, and some cardbox animals though..... Is it time to take things a bit further?  No, according the rules live animals are not allowed, and Eurovision being a family show nudity won't do either. (It seems to be ok to be half naked if you are a dancer though..... )

Regina Lund - naked and censored

Regina Lund's new video Jag är osynlig was censored by Youtube only minutes after it had been uploaded. In the video she was playing a female Jesus who gets crusified in the end. "I was shocked!" she says. "There's nothing more naked in it as in every church! It's ok to have naked man hanging on the wall but my nakedness is too much on internet? ". Oh well, no comment. She's prepairing a new album Dare Regina Lund and we of course remember her from her Melodifestivalen 2007 adventure with Rainbow star .

CAROLA'S BOOBS STEAL THE SHOW, SVT APOLOGIES

Update! Another thing got Swedes talking last night: Carola's boobs when she was giving away an award. This is not the first time her boombs cause headlines; her misfortunate adventures in the 80's in Japan wer explained with her boobs being too big for Japanese market. Ok.... Or was it the song ? Anyways, Carola apologies and says she thinks the dress is stylish and elegant (even her friends said so) and she's a mature woman in her 40s, not a 16-year-old girl and looks like one. The Swedish Oscars, Guldbagge awards were given out last night. Carola was there as a guest star to sing Barbra Streisand's The way we were when honoring the movie stars who passed away during 2012. However, the cameras were too much on Carola, not on the stars showed in photos in the background and that upset many viewers as that part of the show was to celebrate them, not Carola. Oh well...  The producer of the show tells in Aftonbladet the part of the show was made the sam

ESC 2015 SERBIA: BOJANA GOES POLYGLOT AND RELEASES A NEW VIDEO AND REMIX

Serbian Bojana Stamenov hasn't been having beauty sleeps while prepairing for Vienna. She has just released a new proper video replacing the previous fans featuring beauty video , right after she has given us Spanish ( El mundo bajo mis pies ) and French ( Le monde est à moi ) versions of the song!

And that's something else ....

SWEDEN: LOREEN GETS NUDE WITH BODY

 Loreen. A legend for some. A one hit wonder for most. Since winning Eurovision song contest 2012 with Euphoria she has released seven singles. None of them has left the mark really. Her third attempt in Melodifestivalen this year with Statements ended up in a real defeat.  Now she's ready to finally release her second album Nude in August. The lead single is Body . It's... well, like her previous stuff. Okeyish to listen to when it's on but completely forgettable once it's finished.... Pretendious comes to mind. But then maybe I just don't get her. Maybe I never did. Her fans are surely euphoric. Maybe.  Listen in Spotify
