I didn’t really know what to blog about today, I did consider throwing shade at this company who has still not sent me an order after two months of waiting, but it’s not worth it – besides the company doesn’t need any extra promotion. So I was thinking of stuff to write about and just decided on one of my favourite topics: Eurovision.
It is fast approaching, with less than two weeks away before the first Semi-Final kicks off. Those of you who also keep up-to-date with my articles on CelebMix will know that we’ve been covering news and profile pieces on the site. The Eurovision writers of CelebMix cannot wait for the competition.
Ever since 2012 when some awesome songs were entered into Eurovision, I have become a fan. It really started with Loreen, Mandinga, and Ivi Adamou. Those three acts were totally the whole reason I watched Eurovision 2012, although the year before had interested me slightly since Eric Saade represented Sweden and came third; but there was just something about Eurovision 2012 that was the turning point to me, even though I had followed it slightly, in the past. My earliest memory was Javine representing the UK in 2005, but my parents weren’t into the show and I never really got into it until 2012.
Now the show is gearing up to host the 63rd annual competition, and it’s set to be one of the most diverse contests ever, with multiple different genres being displayed on stage. It starts in less than two weeks time with the first and second Semi-Finals taking place on 8 May and 10 May. The Grand Final will take place on 12 May 2018. It’s being held at the Altice Arena, Lisbon, Portugal after Salvador Sobral won last year with his song “Amar Pelos Dois”.
I didn’t know what to blog about today, so I thought I’d display my top five tracks for this year. I literally can’t wait to see who wins. These are in alphabetical order, and you totally need to listen to all five songs right now.
