General Eurovision thread for anything Eurovision Song Contest related, including Junior Eurovision Song Contest and American Song Contest (American adaption of ESC).

The next ESC will be held in May 2022 in Italy.
The next JESC will be held on 19 December 2021 in France.

Previous thread: >>>/m/142465

No. 145058

i love that the esc thread this year was so active a second one was made.i had made one a few years back and it was barely used kek

cant wait to see how much of a trainwreck american song contest is going to be

No. 145059

honestly, I'm a bit excited. if it's a trainwreck at least it'll be entertaining. but im worried it'll just turn into yet another singing reality show. muricans don't understand eurovision.

No. 145060


i meant it in that sense.i should have said disappointing. i havent seen the eurovision movie they made but from what i can tell,they couldnt capture the spirit

No. 145061

Yes same here! I can't believe the thread remained active after the finals too.

No. 145062

i believe corona has partly to do with this,but nonetheless,it was pleasant seeing people talking about esc here

No. 145069

It's going to be a loooot of country pop music, since that's the only thing moving American music show viewers to vote lately.

No. 145072

Oh ew, that's even worse than ballads.

No. 145075

I'm kind of pissed my country (Hungary) doesn't want to participate anymore. Not because I'd like us to win, I usually hate the contestants we pick, but I wanted to vote, and it wouldn't let me. I could've turned the polls around!

No. 145077

ASC is guaranteed to be a shitshow

How will states like Vermont, Alaska and Delaware even find representatives?

Literally nobody lives there kek

No. 145078

Kek >>145072 agreed.

I think I'll test-view the semi finals (assuming it'll follow a similar format as ESC) once they're here, but I'm not sure how interesting a bunch of states competing in a song contest will be..? For me as an European anyway. I'm sure there's some cultural differences between the states but it's still one country. Not to mention it'll all be in English (unless like Hawaii is gonna sing in Hawaiian I guess)

It'll be interesting to see how much they'll change the concept.

No. 145080

If San Marino with 30k and Andorra (coming back in 2022) with 77k people can do it (albeit with international help) then those states with a couple of hundredthousand people will find a way, if they want to.

No. 145081

I'm the most curious about how the voting will be handled; do you have different phone prefix for different state that can be somehow blocked out for voting for said state?

I've made the first thread that got blocked on /ot/ and was so hesitant because I found threads from previous years and they were all so unpopular, thought this time will be the same too and LC just doesn't care for Eurovision much; glad to see anons being more engaged this year!

No. 145082

I believe the US that area codes for each state

Why doesn't Hungary participate anymore?

No. 145086

I wish Turkey would participate again

No. 145087

Hungary has had budget issues in past years, but there's a rumour they aren't taking part now because the country is experiencing a similar political moment to Poland and Eurovision is just too fucking gay.

No. 145088

Just send a dentist like San Marino and make history.

No. 145089

No. 145091

Wouldn't be surpised. Isn't that the reason why Turkey boycotted ESC too, because of Conchita Wurst and shit like that?

Is it true he's some random rich guy who decided to fund his own participation because he could? I read that in the comments of a yt video

No. 145092

I think it's the other way around, Hungary is like extreme Poland.
Poland has it's issues with LGBT (mostly just riling older people against imaginary enemy really because youth is pretty progressive) but still wants to belong to the eurofun so much that even conservative, government-owned TV wouldn't be willing to pass on the contest no matter how gay it would be.

No. 145095

hated this song, so glad it didn't win

No. 145101

Are any of you watching preliminary rounds/national competitions from other countries? Mine doesn't hold any but I wanna watch Sweden's Melfest (I think that's held in early 2022) since I hear it's pretty good.

No. 145111

I hope the American Eurovision gets popular so Latin America gets to have an Eurovision as well!!! We have so much talent to show the world, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru… would LOVE to see it

Does anyone know if the Amerivision will have Canada, Jamaica, Puerto Rico etc as well?

No. 145113

Why? It was one of my favourites that year.

No. 145120

No it's just the 50 American states, Washington DC and 5 territories including Puerto Rico

No. 145123

This is what the wiki page says about ASC
>The program will consist of five "heats" of 10 states each competing for four spots that will advance to the next round. The 20 remaining states will compete in two semifinals, with five states in each semifinal qualifying for the Grand Finals. The 10 finalists will battle for the American Song Contest trophy.

So it looks like they're going to do the whole qualifying thing way different

No. 145124

I like Melodifest but it can be really long and agonizing, especially when they decide to place five ballads in a row. Sometimes you spot the same singers trying over and over each year and I wonder what that's like for their inner peace.

No. 145299

Tbh I think Sweden needs to be careful it doesn't get stuck in sending 2010's-esque songs, trying to replicate their success with Euphoria and Heroes. ESC trends do evolve over time.

No. 145308

Yeah, it was pretty obvious this year that Sweden need some changes to keep up. Feels a bit like the late 00's when we also were completely lost in this contest. Melfest is supposed to get some sort of revamp, so there's a miniscule of hope I guess.

No. 145328

Good. There was no point in it, they got their own musical shows anyways. I wish American version would have been cancelled, but I am sure America paid them a lot.

>The money spent by Malta on this year’s Eurovision Song contest is being investigated following concerns that taxpayer money was spent on trying to manipulate betting odds.
>The allegations accuse PBS of spending money to place bets on their selected entry, Destiny, in order to inflate her odds of victory.
>Ludwig, who represented Malta in 2004 alongside Julie Zahra, says that there are individuals who have spent money on artificially inflating the betting market to put Malta as a favourite, paid for positive coverage in reviews, and inflated YouTube views.

Lmao that'd explain why she placed so much lower than expected.

I'm getting really annoyed at the people who keep whining that Switzerland should have won and that it was the superior song. Switzerland wasn't bad but it was boring and the artist looked autistic trying to those weird dance moves with his hands. Jury votes don't mean shit imo and if we look at public votes the guys doesn't even get in the top 5.

I believe it

I still dont understand how she got so many jury and public votes. These people must be deaf.

This happened in Sanremo, the major Italian song festival, which Mahmood won so he got to represent Italy at Eurovision. At the time Mahmood really wasn't famous, but this guy Ultimo was and he was the favorite to win. In fact he got a lot of public votes, but the jury voted overwhelmingly for Mahmood's song (based jury for once). Cue Mahmood being really surprised hearing he won, and Ultimo barely congratulating him, seething at the journalists and telling them to fuck off at the press conference, and going on insta to complain about the voting system. He even got the "support" of the major rightwing "politician" saying he would have preferred if he won (because obviously Mahmood is half Egyptian and that bothers fascists). Anyway, Soldi became a hit in other countries after Eurovision so it truly was a good ending and we got drama to keep it spicy.
PS in that occasion Il Volo came third lmao

The Eurovision movie was a Will Ferrell comedy that is part of why Iceland is so popular now, even if the film is a joke it did a decent job of getting the idea of Eurovision across despite being super focused on specific characters. No movie about something is ever going to be exactly the same as the real thing sadly.

I never got the hype for Switzerland. Yeah the singer could sing but the song was so boring and lost in the sea of numerous other powerballads. I forgot it as soon as it ended.

Watching the live tapes, it really made me appriciate that we had the actual competition in Rotterdam. There were a few that I could say were the same or better than their live performance but so many fell flat. The ones that stood out for me was Ukraine, Lithuania, Italy, Belgium, and Poland mainly because it was slightly better than what we saw in the semis.

No. 146125

Lithuania's LoT looked identical to me, super impressive how they did that. (And Lithuania's consistent vocal performance was really impressive too, whenever I heard that song I forgot I wasn't listening to a studio recording) I liked Belgium's too, the difference was subtle but nice. Croatia did NOT try. Malta looked way different, but both the LoT and the actual staging during the finals was trash.

1st entry for Eurovision 2022 has been revealed. Bulgaria's sending a rock band, not surprised at all. We'll probably get a flood of rock entries after Maneskin won. Thoughts?

No. 172822

Also for my own thoughts: I think it's kinda embarassing to send the blandest rock song by a band of washed up old dudes after Maneskin won. Clearly no one at Bulgaria's broadcaster understood what people liked about Maneskin, the only thing they took from it is "rock = win".

I predict this won't qualify for the grand final.

Anon, or anons, thanks for sharing all of these for me to conveniently click!
So far:
I really like Estonia and Lithuania, they're both really strong contenders to go far, both songs are unique in their own way but also familiar enough for pleasant listening for everyone. Latvia could be a fun cringe, they did their homework on what's liked in Eurovision but the vocal is just boring and unintelligible at times. At the very least the chorus should be really catchy and in the way it's sung I don't think it is, so ultimately a waste of a concept.
Ukraine's entry is not as strong as Jamala or Go_A it will be inevitably compared to being another folk - inspired song but I couldn't help tearing up anyway, it feels genuine. I guess it's my EE soul being just naturally touched by EE culture.

No. 186283

I actually watched the final for the Lithuanian choice last night and Monika had by far the best song (there were some god fucking awful songs). I hope she does well. They said on the show last night that Lithuania hasn't had a non English entry in 20+ years so it's about time.

I feel like I've heard this kind of song a million times before, I like his voice tho

Damn, amazing. I love the dark little crown that's braided in her hair, very fitting. I also would've loved Ukraine to win last year. Maneskin was great and they really put up a show but damn Shum is just something else. Plus the staging was very innovative.

>I mean I admire the absolute audacity lmao
lol very true

I agree. It's not as strong as Shum or 1944 but it's still well done and among the better we've got so far. It's definitely going to be a finalist. Like you said it feels genuine.
