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 today, it’s time the last of the 31 semi-finalists this year: Romania! After a thoroughly underwhelming yet endearingly patriotic national final, Romania made what had to be the most unsurprising decision of the entire national final season – that of sending Paula Seling and Ovi to their second Eurovision with the dance track “Miracle” –
Rory – Okay, Romania is definitely the fanwank of the year…whether the first time listeners will get it straight off the bat is a mystery..but you gotta admit that Paula has a great voice and Romania is bound to get a good position because it’s a big and happy song…for me..meh, I’m indifferent to it. Score: 5 points out of 12.
James – “Miracle” is not remotely deserving of all the adoration it’s getting from fans right now… it is generic and unoriginal and definitely nothing special. And you’d get better lyrics from puking up a load of Alphabetti Spaghetti and singing the letters in whatever order they landed. That said, the song itself is catchy enough I guess… Score: 6 points out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Romanian 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 Romania’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, as we’re moving on to the first of the six automatic finalists tomorrow!
