Hello again! Welcome to the third summary 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! Now, shall we continue with 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? 🙂
First up in our Pre-Contest Vote from Semi-Final 2 is Malta. After a huge, and sometimes tedious, four-hour-long show, Firelight were declared the winners of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, in which we did a very detailed review of. Firelight will sing their country/indie track “Coming Home”, and if you haven’t heard the song yet, have a listen below!
Rory – Definitely not something I enjoy listening to and on my own personal ranking, it currently lies at #36. I definitely don’t like this song..and after a really good song from Malta last year, I’m very disappointed..they only bit I enjoy in that song is the “yeah, yeah, yeah..” bit. Sorry Malta! Score: 0 points out of 12.
James – I loathed this one at first, but that probably owed more to the fact that there were MANY stronger songs in the Maltese national final *cough – Pamela – cough* .. even so, “Coming Home” has grown on me a little… It’s vaguely enjoyable if I’m in the right mood. Score: 4 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Maltese 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 Malta’s song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as James will be taking on Israel!
