Our ESCBubble editors have also listened to the ten songs, and discussed their own favourites from the first semi-final line-up. Here is what they had to say:
Mikael‘s favourite is Mick Pedaja – he says “The song is very special, especially the lyrics”. Mikael’s other qualifiers would be: Indrek Ventmann, Laura, Kati Laev and Cartoon.
Joe LOVES Zebra Island, saying “I love Nordic electropop and this is so melodic and uplifting, I’ve had it on repeat all week – I really hope this qualifies tonight!” Joe’s other qualifiers would be: Kati Laev, Laura, Wurffel and Windy Beach.
Anne admits to being slightly obsessed with Kati Laev’s ‘Kaugel Sinust’, saying “Fantastic instrumentation, and whilst I don’t have a clue what it’s about, it does remind me of a proper french chanson of bygone days”. Anne also likes: Cartoon, Zebra Island, Laura and Wurffel.
We will (of course!), be covering the show this evening and you can follow our live blog with commentary from our editor Andy…
