Every Eurovision Song is reviewing every song that has taken to the competitive stage, but it’s also looking at the actual competitive performance. Who makes a difference, who bottles it, and who sounds nothing like the studio vision? Here’s the weekly highlights.
The similarity of voting patterns between jury members from the same country has concerned many watching this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, with the EBU forced to disqualify Georgia’s jury from the results. Ben Robertson investigates how significant the voting correlations are between different countries and why this may occur.
While the hardcore Eurovision fan books tickets to Dansk MGP in February, the summer months here at ESC Insight will see us bring you the weekly highlights from our ‘Every Eurovision Song’ project.
In our latest newsletter we look at which cities are the favourites to host the contest in Austria, what some of our Eurovision stars are up to post-contest, and a look ahead at some of the selections for Junior Eurovision coming up. We also feature the regular ‘Robertson’s Reflection’ where Ben shares his opinion on the latest happenings in the Eurovision world, this week about the new rules of Melodifestivalen 2015.
