Eurovision: think I might be changing my mind and it's not even finished

Some observations:

Iceland - wow! Not only a cert to qualify, but on this performance, a real contender.

Switzerland: really disappointing vocals may have just killed it for them.

Turkey/Armenia/Romania: meh.

Bulgaria: still wiping the blood from my ears.

I missed half of Switzerland :( Sodding internet connection.Yohanna was good,but I just find that song so boring.Just wanted Hera and Fridrik to step forward halfway through and turn it into a big disco-fest :)

I still love Regina most.Of course.Don't know if it's just me but I thought Davor looked a bit nervous and shaky in places,despite his over-confidence I've seen in the rehearsals and all the interviews I've seen.Still,that just makes him all the more charming for me :)

Was disappointed with the Swiss vocals - that probably killed it for them I reckon.

Iceland - yes she was good although I think there have been much better Icelandic entries which deserved to win in the past. Their time will hopefully come, but preferably with a disco-fest!

Regina: as I said in my other post, I thought he was holding back - although yes at one point he looked so nervous didn't he! It's still very compelling though, and I'm not usually a big fan of the Balkan entries but this is a bit special. And yes he does have that something :)))

Much better than the rubbish which certain guaranteed-qualifier countries send every year, and this year is no different. :)
