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 on with the second semi-final now, and we come to the smallest country taking part in the Eurovision this year – San Marino! The little landlocked nation will be sending Anita Simoncini and Michele Perniola to Vienna in May to perform their song ‘Chain of Lights’, which will perform third on the night! This song, written by Eurovision legend Ralph Siegel, features the JESC graduates grow up and this song, with its countless half-key changes and varying genres it encompasses will be sure to visualise the Eurovision logo this year perfectly in Vienna! If you haven’t heard ‘Chain of Lights’ yet, have a listen below!
Rory – Yeah…I really was expecting more from San Marino this year..I mean, both are well-received Junior Eurovision alumni, so why give them such a cheesy and dated..I think that the ability to replicate ValMon last year won’t be applicable! Score: 4 points out of 12.
Lewis – It’s probably the most commercially viable Sanmarinese entry for a fair bit of time. Picking these two out of JESC probably wasn’t the best choice they could’ve made either. Score: 4 points out of 12.
Reece – Disappointing, and a bit of a risk picking young singers. Cheesy and forgettable, but perhaps the juries will see something the public won’t. Sadly, I’m not much of a fan. Score: 4 points out of 12.
Lauren – Well, this is…different. It’s, um, entertaining….? Oh, who I am kidding? Let’s face it, this is pretty bad. They’re good singers, it’s just that the atmosphere of the song really, REALLY doesn’t fit them, especially considering their age. Score: 4 points out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Sammarinese 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 the San Marino’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, when Lewis will be taking on Montenegro! So what do you think of San Marino’s song? Tell us by commenting below or voting in the poll!
