Welcome along to the latest 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 the next 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? 🙂
Back on the launch page, you can catch up with all the countries we’ve covered so far, but right now we’re turning our attention (see what I did there?) to Lithuania! After a mammoth twelve-week national selection process, LRT came up with one song and three singers battling it out for the right to sing it in Copenhagen. It just so happened that co-composer of the aforementioned “Attention” Vilija Mataciunaite was the one who won the ticket to Denmark, and will therefore represent Lithuania next month. With this piece of awesomeness here:
Rory – I’m not a huge fan of VIlija, to be completely honest. Sure, she’s really shy and generally adorable, but that song…it’s not really my cup of tea…and dayum girl, get a better outfit for Eurovision!! Eesh. Score: 4 points out of 12.
James – I know a lot of people hate “Attention”, but I absolutely adore it! It’s ridiculously catchy, and I find myself singing it constantly – though I don’t quite have the epic, infectious *attitude* of Vilija yet. I’m working on it. I shall be seething with anger if they don’t make the final this year – after the last three diabolical Lithuanian entries managed it regardless. Fab song! Score: 12 points out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Lithuanian 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 Lithuania’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, as Finland and Ireland shall be posted tomorrow!
