So guys, welcome to this new Contest that we’re rolling out – the ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2015! 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 40 entries! Right, shall we get started?
So this is how we’re going to run this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 40 entries for this year:
- We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2015 (Moldova is first, Armenia is second etc). We’ll do one article 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 the three 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? 🙂
Continuing with this year’s show is Armenia! The country is going to be represented by the supergroup ‘Genealogy’, who will sing their song “Face The Shadow”. Genealogy is made of up of six artists from all around the world – all of whom are of Armenian descent. The song is a bit of a rock ballad that was originally called “Don’t Deny”, but was renamed to help eliminate any political message. If you haven’t heard ‘Face the Shadow’ yet, have a listen below!
Rory – Armenia’s song….it’s just a bit ‘myeh’ to be honest. I liked the concept of bringing the whole world together, but the song doesn’t really come together well – Inga is its saviour. Score: 4 points out of 12.
Lewis – I like the idea of taking an artist from each continent, but this isn’t one of the strongest ballads this year. Score: 5 points out of 12.
Reece – A good concept, but unfortunately is not far of a total mess. An underwhelming entry to say the least. Score: 4 points out of 12.
Lauren – Songs about acceptance seem to be all the rage this year. I actually quite like this one – the woman that sings second has a lovely voice. Score: 8 out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Armenian 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 Armenia’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, when Reece will tackle Belgium! So what do you think of Armenia’s song? Tell us by commenting below or voting in the poll!
Until then, goodnight!
