Eurovision 2007 who will win?

I think either Sweden or Bulgaria. Can't see why the swiss entry is the favourite -Vampires are alive ? ?

The Ukranian entry is unbeatable though....

I just started listening to some of the entries there and I have to say they're nearly all pretty dire.

Our entry would be alright if your one from Dervish actually had a musical note in her head, but she can't sing to save her life.

The entries from the Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland are torture to the ears.

The Bulgarian entry is catchy enough. I like the beat in it, reminds me a bit of something Dario G would come up with.

From what I've listened to so far, the Finnish entry has been my favourite. Your one has a good voice, a bit like your one from Evanescence.

Might listen to some of the others a bit later, but for the moment I'll just dig the Finnish tune.

Armenian, UK, German, Russian, Greek, Lithuanian, Spanish and Bosnia and Herzegovina entries are terrible.

Romanian entry is quite catchy.

The French entry has a certain likeable quality to it.

The videos can all be found in the media section of eurovision.tv, for those hitting "this video is no longer availible" messages on youtube., they are also in stereo.

This years crop of songs are pretty bad compared to last year.

the ones that stood out however for me are:

Bulgaria: love the drum solo.

Andorra might have been in with a chance if the song were in english.

Finland, is another good one.

the french one is also catchy.

The swiss one is probably favorite because DJ BoBo has name recognition. when people realise the song is ****e they won't vote for it.

Bulgaria wins the prize for being the most unique eurovision song this year.

incidentally if you want to get in the "mood" there is always escradio.com for all the eurovision you can eat. 24/7 eurovision songs

As for the UK entry scooch, is it ****e, but given that that kind of ****e goes into the charts during the summer in the UK its understandible how it won. think of the vengaboys and the fast food rockers.

So I am guessing not many people feel strongly for Dervish? No, neither do I.

I think we should get Johnny Logan again. He won several times, and if he does the McDonalds Adverts, then I think he might just do the Eurovision.

I think we should send Kíla over if we want to win, but they probably wouldn't do it.

I quite fancy the Israeli entry. Its a song I might actually listen to outside of the context of the ESC.

The Irish entry is cack, as is the fashion the last decade.

Yep it probably will just thought those two entries were the most flamboyant.

Belarus, Sweden, Bulgaria, Switzerland all have a good chance of winning.
