Eurovision 2014: The Wiener takes it all – RESULTS!

WOW! Eurovision tries its best to stay as non-political and neutral as possible, but there can be no doubt that tonight’s events furthered the cause of acceptance and celebration of all sorts of people and styles. This feeling was summarised in the winner’s speech, delivered by Austrian drag act Conchita Wurst in what will surely be one of the milestone moments in the contest.

So now the confetti is settling, let’s take a moment to look at how the results panned out!

Eurovision 2014: Grand Final preview & running order

Right, this is it! Eurovision week has raced past, and both semi-finals have taken place. You can read my reviews of Semi 1 & Semi 2 if you like! But let’s look forward for tomorrow’s Grand Final.

25 countries have fought (or bought) their way to the grand final, defeating 12 other nations for the chance of Eurovision victory. But only one can be victorious, and bring the contest back to their home country for 2015 (unless it’s currently being annexed).  Who will it be?

Eurovision 2014: Semi-Final 1 RESULTS

Well, what do I know, eh? What a crazy night!! Well, a crazy morning for me, it’s a lovely Spring morning in Japan, and I’ve just been watching the show via a rather buggy connection on SVT’s playback service. At least it was up (no thanks, iPlayer…). So let’s take this one stage at a time.

Road to Copenhagen 2014: Valentina Monetta – “Maybe” (San Marino)

We’ve got a lot to get through, in 42 days, the first semi-final of Eurovision 2014 will take place in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. 37 songs from 37 nations will be determined to take home glory by winning Eurovision and hosting the 2015 show. I suspect the outcome is wide open this year, so maybe anyone could win. Maybe…

San-MarinoBut having written about all 25 national selection shows (click “Copenhagen 2014” at the top, or click the diamond on the left menu to find links), it’s about time to start my third year of reviews of each entry in the run-up to the contest. This is made slightly more troublesome by the fact that in the same period I have to move house, emigrate and get my internet sorted at the other end. Hopefully I will overcome! But to get me started on the road to Copenhagen, let’s look at Eurovision’s smallest nation with the most recent debut and everything to prove.
