In my four years of covering the Eurovision Song Contest, I do not recall encountering an entry with as much baggage as Russia’s “Shine” by the Tolmachevy Sisters.
Dilara Kazimova’s “Start a Fire” is poised to give Azerbaijan yet another Top 10 finish in the Eurovision Song Contest. But does the song tell an incomplete story?
Maybe San Marino will finally make it to the Eurovision Song Contest final with “Maybe” by Valentina Monetta. For the third time to be a charm, it may require some errors from ESC heavyweights.
Mariya Yaremchuk will represent Ukraine with the song “Tick-Tock” in the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest. How will the country do at the competition this time?
Russia has finally revealed their Eurovision entry, but may not have had time to give it one final draft.
