    1. Charis Savva & Nearchos Evaggelou - Deila Den Agapo
    2. Ionna Protopapa - Beat Of My Heart
    3. Panagiotis Koufogiannis - Without Your Love
    4. Hovig - Stone In A River
    5. Christos Rialas - Meine
    6. John Karayiannis - One Thing I Should Have Done
    7. Christina Tselepou - In These Arms

    16. Maria Evangelou - Still
    17. Apollonia - Don't Give Up On Me (Just Yet)
    18. Kyriacos Georgiou - Shake Dat
    19. Doody (lol) - MAGIC
    20. Iosif Charalampous - I Wanna Dance (I Say Tempo)

    Just as Nick said - is this honestly the best talent they could come up with? I'm so glad all of them are only 1:30 minute clips - Beat Of My Heart & Deila Den Agapo are the least shit but still shit enough to make me wonder what the bloody hell was being eliminated if these are the 20 'best'?

    eliminated in semi 2
    Made it to the final

    This is not a storming comeback, not at all - I could listen to a few for longer than one minute.
    Here's a top 20 someone made, it feels like a recap of the failed auditions for a talent show.

    18. Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät - Aina Mun Pitää
    That's actually a decent bunch of songs. I love a good opera car crash, so Opera Skaala is the song I like. I like the variety Finland is once again offering, even having a song with joiking in it (Solju's), but also rock in various styles. It's not all glorious though, especially Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät is terror to the ears.

    1. Take My Love

    9. Not Perfect
    10. Sound of Colours
    11. Factory Hearts
    12. Es Tut Mir Nicht Leid

    I will pleasantly say I don't think any song there will yield a great result for :lt: but I give them the benefit that they came up with a few listenable ones.

    I feel like I can't really judge it, some artist might sing one song great, but the others make it crappy. And not every song fits every artist. But this nf isn't bad at all. ("This Time" is head and shoulders above the others imo)

    Definitely the best NF so far - I quite like a few of these songs but I imagine another listen will be needed.

    Although, I feel awful - this was my only thought when I saw Norlan El Misionario -

    I can't disagree, this is the best NF we've had.

    And a recap with the videos

    Will do a proper ranking at a later date (hopefully!) but Mustelmat simply has to win, I'll be so sad if it doesn't :'(
  16. Mina Member with a "past"

    I finally listened to all the Finnish songs and I have 5 favourites....Satin Circus - Crossroads (yes, the one I had selected in random in chat one night...lol), Siru - Mustelmat (very atmospheric song, not sure how it will be live), Solju - Hold Your Colours (very different), Jouni Aslak - Lions And Lambs (catchy) and Vilikasper Kanth - Äänen kantamattomiin (love the melody in this one).

    Good songs in general, anyway..as long as they don't send the opera woman^_^

    Edited to add: OH DEAR GOD the most views on YouTube are for that AWFUL song -Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät - Aina mun pitää :S

    I'll do a :md: ranking later because I CBA right about now to do what I already did. :P

    In other news, :cy: has cut down their 20 songs down to 10 + released the full versions. Here's my ranking of the full versions and you can click the songs below to hear them. And when they cut down the songs to 6, I'll just edit this post.

    :cy: The Eurovision Project :cy:
    1. Hovig - Stone In A River (Hozier?)
    2. Charis Savva & Nearchos Evaggelou - Deila Den Agapo (Cypriot Indila?)
    3. Giannis Karagiannis - One Thing I Should Have Done (Lisa Andreas sexchange?)
    4. Panagiotis Koufogiannis - Without Your Love (Shaun The Sheep)
    5. Ionna Protopapa - Beat Of My Heart (Standard Eurovision Faff)
    6. Christos Rialas - Meine (My Middle Name is Dull)
    7. Christina Tselepou - In These Arms (Let's mumble into the microphone!)
    8. Pieros Kezou - Said It All Before (Lana Del Rey mixed with :lt: 2008)
    9. Minus One - Shine (Shitrock)
    10. Doody - Magic (Like Justin Bieber With An Appriopriate Name)

    I actually think Hovig is pretty good and Deila Den Agapo has slipped a bit due to some painful high notes but it's still alright. I see :cy: finding it difficult to pass to the final, though.
