Well hello there! Welcome to another article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto yet another country?
This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:
- We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
- We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
- We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
- Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!
Got it? 🙂
Next up in our Pre-Contest run through is Iceland, who will send the band Pollapönk who will sing their song “No Prejudice” in Copenhagen! Originally when Söngvakeppni was on, the band were performing the song under the Icelandic title of “Enga Fórdoma”, which we reviewed when they controversially won. When it comes to the Contest, Pollapönk will sing the song in English..If you haven’t seen the video for “No Prejudice”, have a look below!
Rory – I absolutely despised Iceland when they picked ‘No Prejudice’, as Ásdís was way better than Pollapönk. However, ever since they were picked, I’ve been constantly singing it without realising it..what I’m saying is that we actually may be looking at a qualifier here! Score: 4 points out of 12.
James – Not really a fan of this one at all. The b-b-b-b-b bit is incredibly irritating… although I do think the decision to switch to English has actually been a good one for once here. Score: 2 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Iceland song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!
Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate “No Prejudice”! While you’re waiting for the results, stay tuned to ESC Views tonight, as James will be taking on Albania!
