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 37 competing 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 the turn of automatic finalist number two: France! The national broadcaster France Télévisions completely overhauled their approach to Eurovision for 2014, with a return to the national final format as opposed to the internal selections which have yielded the last seven French entries. In a special edition of “Les Chansons D’Abord”, Twin Twin’s energetic pop number “Moustache” was eventually chosen as the French song for Copenhagen!
Rory – Ever since I heard ‘Moustache’, I have loved it. The song is irresistably catchy, the guys actually sing it well and you can tell that they’re gonna put on a show in Copenhagen! And is it just me or does Lorent look a bit like Ted Mosby off How I Met Your Mother? Score: 10 points out of 12.
James – Look right… I could put together a big long detailed comment about how much I adore the French song this year… or I could just say this: “MOI, JE VOULAIS UNE MOUSTACHE.” Score: 12 points out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the French 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 France’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!
