It’s once again time for us to roll up our sleeves, take a deep breath, and try to remember where Estonia is. Actually, I’ll just speak for myself here: I can’t keep my European geography straight, even after years of following Eurovision obsessively. England? Kid’s stuff. Portugal? Little thing tacked onto Spain. But once I go further east than Germany it’s all just colorful blotches. If anyone knows of some web-based geography trainer video game, I need it, because for the next two months places like Belarus and Moldova are going to be near and dear to my heart.
But before we get into the reviews we wanted to announce some awards we will be giving out after the competition. We felt like just debating which country was going to “win” Eurovision was too limiting, because there are a LOT of ways to win Eurovision in our book. We limited ourselves to six award categories, but we could have come up with plenty more:
- More Annoying Anti-War Song
- Greatest Violin Solo
- The Celine Dion Award for Best Ballad
- Best James Bond Theme Song
What awards would YOU give out? Let us know in the comments. And stay tuned for our first review, coming this week!
