We Are One - 2013

  1. Julio STRANGLES

    We have the logo and the allocation draw for the semi finals, let's have a look:



    Allocation Draw Results:


    1st Semi Final - UK, Sweden, Italy

    2nd Semi Final - France, Germany, Spain

    Any thoughts about it?
  2. Julio STRANGLES

    I like the slogan, not a big fan of the logo myself.
    As for the Allocation I find it this year to be a pretty good one.
    San Marino and Italy on different Semis (poor San Marino), Armenia and Azerbaijan together (will they vote each other? :P) Greece and San Marino in Different Semis as well (12 Points goes to?), the Ex-Yugos are quite ok divided on the semis Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro on the first, Macedoni and Georgia on the Second.

    The Nordic countries are separated as well, Denmark and Sweden on the first Semi Final, Iceland Finland and Norway on the Second.

    Then we Have Holland on the first Semi together with Belgium and Austria while Ireland has the UK voting there as well. Estonia and Lithuania are together on the first Semi as well, and Belarus Ukraine and Russia. On the rest of the Second Semi Final Switzerland has France, Germany and Spain.

    So imo it is a pretty well divided Semi Finals this time, let's wait and see how it will go.

    that comment about europe coming together to celebrate their diversity made me laugh as most will sing in English

    "We Are One" - yeah right, try telling that to Armenia and Azerbaijan.
    Julio, Merjan and sokrates1988 like this.

    JW makes a damn good point here. That slogan is a direct attack at the political drama around the Armenian participation last year.
    Also, I think the slogan is too cliche for words. Perhaps a more creative slogan would be a good idea for 2014.

    Then on the semifinal draws. Just looking at Holland: happy to have Belgium there, also the other countries do make me happy. Of course there's an ex-Yugo block with Serbia-Slovenia-Montenegro-Croatia, but Montenegro and Croatia won't send brilliant entries. A vocal folk group from Croatia and trash rap from Montenegro. The only countries I wished to see voting in semi 1 are Norway and Germany, as Anouk is quite well known there.
    As for the other semi: Good semi, will be interesting!

    I dont like the slogan, is too simple for the Europe's favourite TV show, in my opinion... But butterfly looks great! *-*

    About Semi Final Allocation draw: what a mess!!?? ): Russia, Ukraine and Belarus in the same semifinal, Caucasus trio in the same! And poor Macedonia, all of Ex yugo countries are in 1st semi except of them... I dont like this draw at all!!!

    Good luck to all of countries! :)

    I like neither the slogan nor the logo. The slogan is as cliche as it could be and as for the logo, I have 12 yo students who are more creative than that.
    I'm pleased with the draw as I imagine we'll get some points from Romania, Albania and Bulgaria..maybe Georgia, too. Hopefully Germany will also give us something so we should be able to make it to the final (if our song isn't awful, that is). Also happy that Finland is in our semi as, if they send Mikael Saari, they will certainly have my vote and, of course, Switzerland has my vote already :up:
