Music Of The Month: May 

This months music of the month won’t include any Eurovision songs. I decided to not put them in this blogpost, because May mainly was about Eurovision. Today I will give you 5 non-Eurovision songs that I loved this month.

Twenty One Pilots – Ride.

First of all the new Twenty One Pilotes single. I am in love with it! It is so good and I am starting to like them more and more.

Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling!

I saw him performing at the Eurovision (on tv). I am not a fan of Justin Timberlake, but some of his songs I really like and this is one of them. It was also really cool to see him at Eurovision.

DNCE – Cake By The Ocean.

Everytime this song is on the radio, I can’t help it but I just want to sing along with it. This song is so catchy.

Bastille – Pompeii.

The first song from Bastille I ever heard and again this song is really catchy. I can’t believe I am going to see them in June. I am so excited to finally see them again, hopefully with new an amazing music.

You Me At Six – Loverboy.

And my first ever You Me At Six song. After Eurovision this has been my tune. I have been listening to them every single day!

  1. France.
  2. Bulgaria, Iceland, Russia.
  3. Israel, Spain, Croatia, Latvia, Estonia, Hungary.

Eurovision 2016 Top 10 

Eurovision 2016 Top 10 

In a few days the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 will start and I am so excited! This year Eurovision will be held in Sweden, Stockholm. Their theme is: Come Together. Also Sweden made a change in the televote, I am not sure if I like that or not.

If you want to see my full top 42, I will add it into this blogpost to!

This year it would have been 43 countries that would sing in Sweden, but Romania got disqualified, because they still had to pay a lot of money. It is good they are disqualified, but it is so sad for their singer.

The Netherlands are back in the game again! When I first heard our song, I disliked it! But this song has grown so much on me and I really hope Douwe Bob will qualify, because a finale without your country isn’t fun.

10. Spain.

Spain

Barei – Say Yay.

Spain

This song has come a long way, from a non favorite to a favorite. It has grown so much on me and this song is not a typical song that spain would send. I find it really catchy and it is so easy to remember. She is amazing live.

Spain will sing in the final!

09. Hungary.

Hungary

Freddie – Pioneer. 

Hungary

I am so happy that Hungary chose him! I really love his voice. Eventhought I wished he had more of a rock song for his voice. I still love this song a lot and this is my favorite hungarian entry ever! I also love the message of this song.

Hungary will sing in the first semi-final.

08. Israel.

Israel

Hovi Star – Made Of Stars.

Israel

Before Israel made this version of the song, I really didnt like the song at all. It was such an forgetable song, but then they released this version. I fell in love with this song and I am so happy they did a revamp. Hovi sings this song so beautiful and I enjoy every minute of this song!

Israel will sing in the second semi-final.

07. Croatia

Croatia

Nina Kraljic – Lighthouse.

Croatia

Croatia is back and they are stronger than ever! I missed this country so much and they decided to take Eurovision serious. I really love this song and I love Nina’s voice. I was scared she wouldn’t be that good live, but she is really good!

Croatia will sing in the first semi-final.

06. Iceland.

Iceland

Greta Salome – Hear Them Calling.

Iceland

I liked this song before I went to Eurovision in Concert, but after the concert I knew this could be a possible dark horse. She is so good live and the song has a strong message. At the beginning I prefered the Icelandic version, but still this version is amazing! I just hope she won’t be underrated!

Iceland will sing in the first semi-final.

05. Russia.

Russia

Sergey Lazarev – You’re the Only One.

Russia

Finally after screaming to Russia for 8 years that they had to send Sergey to Eurovision, they finally did it. Sergey is my favorite Russian singer and I knew he wouldn’t dissapoint me. I still can’t believe he is actually going. This song is amazing and Russia is in it to win it! His vocals live are amazing and all I can say is I love this song a lot! This will be atleast in the top 5

Russia will sing in the first semi-final.

04. Estonia.

Estonia

Jüri Pootsmann – Play.

Estonia

This guy has such an amazing voice! I really love his deep voice and that is the main reason I love this song so much! I find his voice very mysterious and Jüri’s facial expression are just gold!

Estonia will sing in the first semi-final.

03. Bulgaria.

Bulgaria

Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime.

Bulgaria

Best Bulgarian entry! When they announced that Poli would participate again for Bulgaria, I thought their song would be a rock song, but it wasn’t. I must say this song is so much better! Poli is amazing live and I want this to qualify, because Bulgaria deserves to be in the final.

Bulgaria will sing in the second semi-final.

02. Latvia.

Latvia

Justs – Heartbeat.

Latvia

I normally don’t like the style of these kind of songs, but I just love it a lot. Justs has an amazing voice and I love it when he sings higher and puts his power into it. I catch myself listening to this song all the time. Latvia did once again an amazing job.

Latvia will sing in the second semi-final.

01. France.

France

Amir – J’ai Cherché

France

This song gives me so much feelings everytime I listen to it. It makes me fall in love with this song over and over again. I normally not a fan of French songs, but this is so amazing. I love the French and English parts, because it sounds amazing. Amir is such a charming singer. If anyone last year said to me that I actually would have France as my winner, I probably would have told them that they were crazy. I still can’t believe it how good this song.

France will sing in the final.

Please respect my opinion!

Eurovision in Concert 2016

Eurovision in Concert 2016

On Saturday the 9th of April Eurovision in Concert was held in the Melkweg, Amsterdam. 26 of the 43 countries participated in this event. I had an amazing day with my friends and I even got to meet my friends from Twitter. Personal pictures are on my instagram account (AllTimeFionax). Today I want to give you a review from each country that participated in this event. The videos I used are from the Eurovision In Concert YouTube, all rights belong to them! Pictures are made by me.

Cyprus. 

20160409_203709

Minus One – Alter Ego. 

First country to sing was Cyprus and I already had Cyprus in my favorites, because it is a rock song. I like the song live, but not as much as I do when I hear the studio version. The vocals are good, to be honest better as expected. There aren’t much Rock songs in Eurovision at all, but this is the best one this year!

Slovenia.

20160409_203938

ManuElla – Blue And Red.

Slovenia was second to perform. I really dislike this song, especially the lyrics. Vocally she is good, but this song does nothing with me and she couldn’t convice me at all on the concert.

Romania.

20160409_204407(0)

Ovidiu Anton – Moment Of Silence.

I am not sure about this song, sometimes I don’t like it and sometimes I like it. His performance didn’t convince me at all. His vocals were good, but it is nothing special. Romania has been disqualified! Which means we won’t see Ovidiu in May. I feel sorry for the artist, because he did all his work for nothing!

Albania. 

20160409_204743

Eneda Tarifa – Fairytale.

She suprised me to be honest, because I wasn’t as bad as I expected! I still don’t like the song, but she did sing a lot better. The live version is better as the studio version.

United Kingdom.

20160409_205252

Joe & Jake – You’re Not Alone.

These two guys are so charming! I loved their performance at Eurovision in Concert. This song has been growing on me the past few weeks and seeing this live made me love it even more! It is really catchy and the past week I have been singing this song a lot.

Switzerland.

20160409_205618

Rykka – Last Of Our Kind.

To be honest she surprised me with her vocals, but she didn’t convince me either. I find this song boring and eventhought she sung good I didn’t feel this song at all.

Belarus.

20160409_210123

Ivan – Help You Fly.

I kinda start to like this song to be honest. Ivan live was good and I really like the style of this song. He isn’t the best live, but it was nice to see him perform. I listen to this song more and more. He was actually wearing clothes, gladly.

Moldova.

20160409_210517

Lidia Isac – Falling Stars.

I didn’t like her performance at all. Vocals were ok, but nothing special. I don’t like her song either. It was nice to see her live, but it didn’t change my opinion.

Iceland.

20160409_211316

Greta Salome – Hear Them Calling.

Greta was amazing at Eurovision In Concert. She started her performance with playing the violin and after that the song started. I knew this performance would be good, but seeing this song live made me even love it more! This could be a possible darkhorse at the Eurovision and I really hope she will do good!

Montenegro. 

20160409_213508

Highway – The Real Thing.

What a mess! I really don’t want to say bad things about this, but I really don’t like it. The performance was such a mess and this song is definitly a no go for me. They didn’t convice me at all! I expected a lot more from them to be honest.

Israel.

20160409_213953

Hovi Star – Made Of Stars.

Since the revamp I absolutly adore this song! This song is so beautiful and Hovi sings so good live. He totally conviced me on saturday! I love Hovi his personality.

Serbia.

20160409_214342

Sanja Vučić ZAA – Goodbye (Shelter).

I am sad that how much I try to like this song, but somehow I just can’t like it! Sanja is really good live and her performance was amazing. I just don’t feel the song at all. Which is a shame.

Poland.

20160409_214927

Michael Spzak – Color of Your Life.

When I heard this song for the first time I disliked it, but I catch myself singing this song a lot. I start to like this song, however I didn’t like his performance that much. I loved the part where the public starts singing along with the ohohoh parts. Vocals were okay.

Austria.

20160409_215445

Zoë – Loin D’ici.

This girl conviced me so much on saturday that she became one of my favourites! She got an amazing applause, which she deserved! She is so good live and I totally fell in love with this song. I never throughout she would became one of my favorites.

Estonia.

20160409_220023

Jüri – Play.

The guy with the amazing and unique voice. This song live is amazing, his voice is amazing. I love his voice so so much. This is one of my top Favorites this year!

Ukraine.

20160409_220417

Jamala – 1944.

Eventhought this song isn’t in my favorites, I liked her performance! After listening to this song again I am starting to like it more and more. She is really good live and I think this song could do good in May.

Bosnia & Herzegovina.

20160409_221031

Dalal & Deen Feat. Ana Rucner & Jala – Ljubav Je.

I like this song, because this song is in their own language. I didn’t like the rap part. I didn’t expect a lot, but I really liked it. Even the rap part! The only thing I didn’t like is that Jala was walking on the stage and it felt like he was waiting until the song was finally over.

Croatia.

20160409_221327

Nina Kraljic – Lighthouse.

This was the first time that I heard the Croatian song live. Croatia has been in my favorites since I heard it. I must say I am impressed. Nina is really good live and with a good staging she could do really good. I also loved her dress and it was perfect for this song.

The Netherlands.

20160409_223419

Douwe Bob – Slow Down.

I knew Douwe Bob would give an amazing performance and he is just a great performer. This song grew so much on me the past weeks and I think it will do good in Stockholm. It is so different from all the other songs.

Malta.

20160409_223803

Ira Losco – Walk On Water.

Before the concert I wasn’t sure if I liked Malta or not, but after the concert I knew I liked Malta. Ira is a good singer and hopefully she will do something with her performance, because she was just walking on stage.

Latvia.

20160409_224240

Justs – Heartbeat.

This performance was just amazing! I even loved it more that the studio version. Justs is amazing and I love this song so much. Aminata did a good job.

Bulgaria.

20160409_224608

Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime.

Back in 2010 I already loved Poli with her song Na Inat, sadly she didn’t reach the final. This year I love her song even more. She had an amazing performance and I can’t wait to see her performance in May. This song also grew on me.

Italy.

20160409_225023

Francesca Michielin – No Degree Of Separation.

I like the Italian song, but the performance on ESC in Concert wasn’t that good. The bass was too loud and because of that I couldn’t her Francesca at all. It was a dissapointment, because I was excited for the Italian song.

France.

20160409_225507

Amir – J’ai Cherché.

I was excited to the Amir live! I just love this song so much, everytime I hear this song I immediatly get a mood boost. It also feels like I fall in love over and over again. This was my favorite performance of the night and Amir is very charming.

Macedonia.

20160409_230133

Kaliopi – Dona.

Kaliopi is an amazing artiest, she performed good. Unfortunaly I don’t like her song at all. It is amazing that she sings in her own language.

Spain.

20160409_230854

Barei – Say Yay.

This song has grown so much on me and seeing this live made me even love it more. She is amazing live and I love her dance moves. Great choice to let her end the show
