I think I prefer Albania from the two selected so far, but it's close. Ireland's song is instant and decently-produced, Albania's actually has some sort of emotion to it and is vaguely interesting, but neither one really catches my fancy so far, and I'm hoping neither one ends up in my top 20 for the year. Well, I suppose Albania will be giving it their usual revamp, so I should probably reserve my judgement on them until that happens.

Having listened to all songs now (I waited until tonight) I'd be happy with Ira, Christabelle or Jessica for Malta. Anyone else would see them languish in the semis again :(

Actually, the only one that is growing on me is ::al. Everything else is just meh.

Well at least next time you won't have many expectations, which might lead to a more enjoyable show...yes, I know, it doesn't help much...

I have a feeling that an eastern country will win it this year (mostly because of Russia and Armenia).

Hehe it's always best to not have expectations going in I do believe. It's just that Loïc Nottet got me so excited about Belgium since it was the first time in a long time that Belgium put a real effort into ESC.

So far none of the participating songs even meet ESC quality.

Definitely shows how taste can differ from person to person... Albania's song is the only one selected so far that I particularly like :rolleyes:

Still, I imagine the quality of songs selected will go up as we get things from stronger countries; note that we still don't have any songs from 24 out of last year's 27 finalists.

I should just add that every year it feels like that at its early stages, but then somehow everything always seems to fall into place.

PS Albania's wonderful! ;)

Yeah - there are a lot of effects that the annual doom-and-gloom threads usually don't take into account, I think. Most of the 'big' countries reveal their songs later on, while earlier on we tend to get a lot of filler stuff that's eventually eliminated; even then, about half of the early reveals tend to get significant revamps before the contest. Already that means we're mostly getting incomplete versions of the weaker songs, which is never going to feel good. Plus, plenty of entries that don't amaze at first can improve immensely live in May (Iceland 2013, Austria 2014; there are plenty, mostly depending on personal opinion). Add to that the fact that we've got a lot of internal selections with little known info this year, plus a higher count of participants than before, and... yeah, this point in the season was always going to feel kinda weak. One way or another, I'm pretty sure the quality of the songs we're getting should go up before too long.

That said, I'm not guaranteeing it'll be a strong year - certainly, most of the countries that've chosen so far sent something better last year - just that it's too early to judge one way or another. Hoping for another good year!

definatley that's the best thing about Eurovision everyone has completely different taste in music and there's all kinds of age groups who watch it.

I say that ever year, but this year I am really happy with the songs so far (except Belgium) I reserve comments on Albania because we dont have the final version, but I think it has a lot of potential

I thought I removed that but I obviously didn't. removed now. Hopefully we will find out the decision and if there is a new song in the coming days.

I think they have decided not to keep it (or at least not keep it as it was) because there wasn't a big hype. Like Macedonia with Imperija.. there wasn't a big hype so they changed it. TVM are in it to win it this year and they will do whatever it takes

Too bad :( I started liked Chameleon recently and now is stuck in my head!! But we will see how it ends up with a new song or a revamped Chameleon

It's so hard to put my favourites in order, I don't know how I'll manage, I just keep changing my mind all the time. This year really is shaping up to be one of my favourites ever actually. I'm just really enjoying these songs, their vibes and their variety, a lot of very good favourites in national finals yet to come as well.... I feel like most countries have improved or at least doing their best :D Ah.... It's gonna be great. Probably the best since 2012 xheya

To me, the entries so far seem to be quite weak this year. My fave at the moment is UK, with - I can't believe I ever say this - Germany next at no 2. We had some good songs the past decade but none of them would make it into my top 10. This year is probably a novelty.

You need to update Moldova's video as the version you had has been removed.

And I'm sure you'll get to those from last night as well that were chosen ;)

the 14th is the deadline.

All songs will be listened to and a decision will be made as to whether they are eligible for ESC. which I think is pretty stupid, if a song is ineligible then surely it is too late to change it because the deadline has passed??

Go figure. Maybe they will be granted 1-2 extra days?

I don't get why countries just pick at the very end. It's like assignments back at school. If you've got a week to complete, why leave it to the very end?
