Official entries in Eurovision 2017
Eurovision 2017 is coming up in May. All the entries have been selected and contestants are probably practicing and practicing to get ready. While there is an unwanted political kerfluffle between Ukraine (the host country) and Russia, we're looking forward to the contest. What's below are the official entries in the order listed on the eurovision.tv website. Curiously they're not listed in alphabetical order. Instead the ordering is, the first 18 are the running order of the First Semi-Final, the next 19 are the running order of the Second Semi-Final, and the last 6 are the countries which are pre-approved for Eurovision and are not required to participate in Semi-Finals.
Overthinking Eurovision with the biggest Eurovision Gimmicks of 2017
Eurovision is a kitschy song contest with pretentions of Great Importance. That makes it very easy to overthink Eurovision entries. This video is a deep dive into two of the best entries in Eurovision 2017, My Friend from Croatia, and Yodel It! from Romania. I love both of these songs, and wow this guy does a great bit of over-thinking. I'm also tossing in a few videos made by Ilinca, the Yodel It singer, because I like them very much.
