If Iceland wins 2019 we should send
Thorsteinn Einarsson


Thorsteinn Einarsson is an Austrian–Icelandic musician who became known through the Austrian talent show Die große Chance.

I like their music but i dont think they would go for Eurovision and for ORF it would be a risky choice again to send a german indie song. i guess they will look for a mainstream song to reach the final again.

Okay, it's 2019, so why is there still so much boring music out there? Flo Fin is not even original and interesting enough for my BRAVO Hits Vol. 1 (1992). Beige and boring, those finger snaps are really surprising though but not very redeeming. Most skippable song of the year so far for me (I hope I didn't spoil no one).

He might pull off a victory in a charisma contest against Elliot, but I am not even too certain about that.

This song is not my cup of tea either. but i think that he has got a great voice and he looks very charismatic. the videos i post dont necessarily reflect my taste of music and i dont think that the songs would fit for esc but probably the artists. that is my intention.

He is so huge as a star, that the Austrian charts needed to be changed because of him. When he dropped his last album, he occupied 13 places of the Top 15.

Seeing her in Romania is kinda random. With the right song though, I still believe she could be a worthy representative: she's a vocalist, not a songwriter. Give her a metal song a la "Viszlát nyár" and voila!

Why do you guys think she's cancelled for ORF? I thought she tried her luck for Austria once before. She doesn't seem to be edgy, but at least they wouldn't have to worry about vocals this time around xshifty

she is just not popular in Austria. of course she is a great singer. but artistically she is a bit lost in my eyes. and for the Austrian selection it is just too late if she hasnt got a song yet.

ORF has confirmed participation in 2020.
However, I suspect that the ORF will operate low key in the coming years because of the enormous modernization costs of the broadcasting center of the ORF.

Female powerballads just have an abysmal record at Eurovision. I don't dispute her vocal abilities. I just don't see her having success at Eurovision.

The "Female power ballads" category is very diverse though: Odobescu's "Stay", "LoveWave", "I'm Alive", "Proud", "Kruna", "Undo", to name of few... And none of them really sound alike.

If the composition is lacking, then it'll be much harder to succeed with just a voice (but it doesn't apply to ballads only), hence why an enlightened choice song-wise is key imo, regardless of the genre or tempo.

He didn't have the same impact on me than he seems to have on you. He's certainly very talented and I always appreciate artists who perform their own songs. But speaking of Eurovision, I don't think he would really make a big impact. The examples you posted are somewhat intimate and I fear he would get lost on the big stage with material like this. Of course he could do a different song, but do we want artists to change their style and work just to fit in ESC?

Ezio
20th October 2019, 13:36
He has a good voice, but his song writing is quite poor: sequences of "been there" sound spatterns that go nowhere but are quite irritating. (Paenda had one great song and that was "Limits").

Give me a computer and I'd produce something similarly annoying and belt out some shrieking notes with disposed of lyrics (keep me coming, keep me going).

hungo
20th October 2019, 15:30
imo lou asril is a great artist. i guess he originally is a jazz singer and composer. the lyrics are great too. i dont think he needs esc to get the attention he deserves but of course he would stand out with doing something unforeseen.

marty
20th October 2019, 18:55
i think that Lou would be too risky again after Paenda last year, Eberhard Forcher will choose a safer entry this year. I love ORF to go for risky entries though. Now that november is near i suppose there will only be two or three potential entries left. I am curious if we will have to wait until january again or if orf will decide in december like in 2017 and 18.

I heard that ÖRF knew that it was a risky move to pick Limits out and that it could possibly not pay off. Song-wise, this was anything but a trainwreck. However, the way Paenda performed it was... well, was not enough to sail through the grand final.

Her vocals weren't on point, the staging was meh.

Now something OT, category useless knowledge.
This week, ORF celebrates the tenth anniversary of its Video On Demand offer.
Due to legal restrictions, the programs offered are only available one week after their broadcast.
The most popular broadcast between 2009 and 2016 was the grand finale of the ESC 2014 with 965,501 views.
On the 4th place is the grand finale of the ESC 2015 with 609.841 views.
After 2016, the counting method of the views has been changed, which means there are no possibilities to compare with the period before.

A short article full of unproven speculations (and a repeated grammatical error :mrgreen:) that are taken form another rather unprofessional looking website that does not give any more details nor provides any facts either. Whether or not it is true doesn't even make a difference because we have to wait till the official announcement anyways.

It is quite obvious that the austrian entry would have been chosen around this time. already in october Eberhard Forcher said, that they are close to the final decision and will announce the artist in december. anyways it sounds like this year there is a clear decision.

Definetly she was among the top three acts. But if she really will be the one…. i am not sure. But I think she would be a very good choice. Great voice and she is very cute. And she is a songwriter. I thought december 5 would be a good day for the announcement.

For sure it is not definitely because it is not confirmed by ORF. It is also possible that she and her management want to draw attention to get some publicity. her first album will be released soon and she is quite unknown in Austria. Still there is quite a high chance that she will be the one. But we have to wait.

Just to give an example: at the moment the negotiations between the green party and the ÖVP have barely begun and we will most likely have to wait until January or even later to have a new government, but Österreich already gives a list of future members of the new government. So that's about the credibility of this tabloid. :lol:

Christian Ude:

Vincent Bueno, winner of the ORF casting success "Musical! Die Show "(2008), was part of the NF " Wer singt für Österreich? " 2016, with his joyful dance number "All We Need Is That Love" but was defeated by Zoë Straub.......(.......).
But Bueno is now getting big into the picture in Rotterdam - and according to reports, it will be as lively as in 2016!

Get ready for some dancing.

The News Outlet "Heute - Wien Ausgabe: 2019-12-02" was a lot more reticent in its coverage:

The Austrian with Filipino roots has already made several attempts towards song contest and shines with experience in show business. At the age of 33, Vincent Bueno now faces his goal in life: he is considered the hottest candidate for the 2020 competition in Amsterdam. Officially, ORF is presenting its candidate in the beginning of March.

I dont see any problems in doing his job while preparing for eurovision. and it is additional publicity for him and for the show.
