First three entries:

Albania 2012: Rona Nishliu / "Suus"

(Like all Albanian entries, this song will most likely be completely reworked until the Contest)

I'm definitely not impressed so far.....

And for Albania's sake I hope their song is reworked quite substantially, because that was just awful!!

I used to love Cyprus' entries, but their song this year is so bland. It's like every other summer one hit wonder from the past twenty years or so: Paradisio, Vengaboys, Blümchen, Pandora.....

Netherlands 2012: Joan Franka / "You and Me"

* Will the Netherlands qualify for the final for the first time since 2004?

Slovenia 2012: Eva Boto / "Verjamem"

Finland 2012: Pernilla Karlsson / "När jag blundar"

* This is the first time since 1990 and only the second time in the history of the contest that Finland has opted for a song in Swedish. The Swedish language was last heard in the 1998 contest, then of course in the Swedish entry.

75-year old Engelbert Humperdinck will represent the United Kingdom in this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

(Rumour has it that Dame Vera Lynn (94 years old) was the first choice, but she felt that someone a little bit younger would be more appropriate. Little did she know that the BBC would take her words quite so literally..... tongue.png )

Engelbert won't even be the oldest participant in this year's edition: Russia will be represented by Buranovskie Babushki, a group of grandmas, with the song "Party for Everybody".

Meanwhile, Armenia has decided to withdraw from the contest for political reasons.

Yes, that is indeed Russia's entry. Of course it's utter trash but I think it might even win the contest – after all, it's Russia. If some other country would send this kind of song – apart from Ukraine –, it would end up last in one of the semi finals.

Jedward? I had never seen these little techno doublemint twins... and WOW are they AWFUL, there are no words. What happened with Lys Assia? I thought she was going to compete? I am a Swede... that Albanian song sounded quite promising when I started listening, but then went to hell REALLY quickly. I like dark, melancholy ballads, but that was just strange. I'm likin that UK song, Eng certainly ain't lost his pipes... but that light brown hair has got to GO, it don't look right on him.
