Well hello there! Welcome to the twentieth 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! Right, shall we get onto 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 Vote series is Georgia. After revealing their artists on February 4th (which conveniently happens to be my birthday), The Shin and Mariko Ebralidze would be singing “Three Minutes to Earth”, a folky pop song that was revealed on March 14th, just three days before the deadline. The video is probably the most laid back video of the lot this year, looking like it was being shot in the back of a garden centre. If you haven’t heard “Three Minutes to Earth”
Rory – Absolute guilty pleasure here! I’ve loved it from the first listen and I just..am lost for words. I don’t get why people find it really horrible to listen to – it actually isn’t. It’s very melodic, cleverly written folk music and I think although a huge deal of the public will probably pass it off, there may be a few that actually love it, so we may be looking at possible qualification here! Score: 12 points out of 12.
James – When Georgia’s song was first revealed, I loathed it… but within hours it had started to grow on me like a cancerous ulcer, and now – despite the fact I’ve only heard it a few times, it has become my ultimate guilty pleasure of 2014. I’m sorry Nick. Score: 7 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Georgian 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 Georgia’s song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as we’ll be taking on Austria and Poland tomorrow!
