In No particular order.

Norway – Well it *has* to be in the top 5 doesn’t it?? – The bookies say it must, the fans say it must – but then again, *is* it the kind of thing the juries and televoters like… You would think that this would be the top 1 – but it’s not a done deal.

UK – Yes, this song has its failings – but it also has its strengths. Finally a UK entry to be proud of!

France – This has been a revelation for me!! – I just stare at the screen, or at the stage – and stare, and stare… Patricia is Mesmeric!!

Greece – God I hate this song…. But I can see why this will end up top 5 – It has populist appeal ( damn the public!!)

Ukraine – This is a mess visually, but Europe aren’t going to vote against a pretty woman and scantilly clad men are they?!!
