Well hello there! Welcome to another 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? 🙂
Next up in our Pre-Contest vote is Belarus who, after a really interesting National Final which featured the worst attempt at canned applause ever which we documented when we reviewed the NF, will be represented by Yuriy Vaschuk, otherwise known as TEO, with his pop song ‘Cheesecake’, whose video features him dancing with a woman who he bites the finger off…well it looks like that anyway! If you haven’t heard ‘Cheesecake’ yet, have a listen below!
Rory – I’m definitely not happy with who Belarus is sending to Eurovision – not at all! How could Belarus pick ‘Cheesecake’ over an amazing song like ‘Via Lattea’ or ‘Starlight’?! Well, don’t expect Belarus to do well, they’re gonna get lost within such a strong second semi-final! Score: 1 point of 12.
James – “Cheesecake” is not one of my personal favourites by any means, but for what it is, it’s quite good value. Tongue-in-cheek, contemporary pop, which will be memorable to viewers at home… I can see it doing rather well even though I’m not a massive fan myself! Score: 5 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Belorussian 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 Belarus’ song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as James will be taking on FYR Macedonia!
