Finalists And Live Blog 20:20 CET
Someone told the male host that Tartan was the new Black – he has gone to town! Probably Glasgow from the looks of it!
Aminata – Love injected
Garrett’s Thoughts :
#WOW – What a start to the show! Aminata looks like a Supermodel and sings with one hell of a punch. This is a very 80’s German/Electro/Pop song. Aminata uses the camera like a professional. She just draws you into her performance. Super Classy, Super Sassy and A Super song #FAB
Ok – I haven’t gone to sleep on you. It is just the TV Ad breaks here in Latvia with the biggest and chattiest BEAVER ever keeping me company! #SCARED
MNTHA – Nefelibata
Garrett’s Thought :
Ever wondered what Sia would look like with a haircut? Well think no more as MNTHA certainly shows us the way!
Where is Latvia getting these funky singers and songs? Again another minimal pop song that I personally love. However putting my “Jury Hat” on I fear that some of the traditional and more mature jurors across Europe wouldn’t understand the brilliance of this song. It’s Dark and Moody and I like that. For me though it ended a little abrupt and could have done with some more light and shade in the song to make it fully engaging. Still a good strong song that is radio friendly for the under 20 year olds.
ElektroFolk – Sundance
Now for something completely different. This to me is Lithuania’s 2010 Eurovision act InCulto minus the sexy hot pants! They have that folk/electro/pop sound.
The verse of the song lacked a punch for me on the Semi Finals but I don’t know what they did but it sounded much better – and just when it counted.
Look it seems a little like your parents have gotten up to sing and dance at a family wedding which when I have had a few pints I love it but do I do that at Eurovision – OH I DO! This is a party song and they are not ashamed of it. If they were being serious about it then it wouldn’t work BUT they aren’t. This would go down a storm at Euroclub but I think Jury members would be afraid to say they liked it but the audience LOVED it!
Loving the homage to the Jedward hair! Well Latvia gave ‘Lipstick’ 10 points! #JustSaying
TV Ad break and its #BeaverTime or is it #GroundHogDay all over again! You can’t make this stuff up #LovingIt. I think the Beaver is doing a mating call! Is it strange that I am turned on! No he was pretending to be a food processor. Waiter – I’m having what he’s having!
Markus Riva – Take me down
Many Have Markus as the favourite to take the title tonight. Well it is a good omen that he has Sanna Nielsen’s ‘Undo’ lighting!
Nothing says that I am comfortable in my own skin than a giant shirtless picture of you while you sing your little heart out! The audience – including the guys – sounded like they were swooning!
This is moody love song but Markus was smiling too much at times. Hey I would be too if I was one step away from singing on a Eurovision stage. Look he will never win the award for the best vocal performance of all time but not many will. Markus is pure pop and gave it 1000% (yes 1 thousand) with a good pop song.
Teenage girls will love him and they – according to the stats – sms the most. So he could do well with the public vote. I’m confused on who I want to win! Thank God there are only 4 singers!
There is your lot and here are the telephone numbers for you to call! Looking like a sexy police line-up here they are
Ok – They are showing local polls and pics of Markuis’ Fans – as you can see they are all girls
WOW – They got Phil Collins and Genesis on Supernova and hasn’t Phil’s hair grown!
Just joking – Its Latvian superstars Bet Bet
Next up in the Interval act is DONS – He is bigger that Ed Sheeran in Latvia and twice as talented #JustSaying! He is a former Supernova contestant and I am sure we will see him on a Eurovision stage soon!
Ok – The guy in the white t-shirt looks bored. I think he needs a hug from the #RigaBeaver
I want the #Ltvsupernova #RigaBeaver to call out the Latvian Results in Vienna – He #ROCKS
It’s the cool guy from Brainstorm who also presented Eurovision 2003. He now goes by the name of Prata Vetra.
Voting is closed!
#RigaBeaver Time and Man I’m Tripping!
Ok – Here I go with my predictions.
My Heart says
1 – The Riga Beaver
Oh he’s not in the contest – DARN!!! I LOVE HIM!
Remember the foreign voters can vote too on the LTV Website too. Yes where you are watching this now!
My Personal Choice’s are as follows
1 – Aminata
2 – ElektroFolk
3 – Markus Riva
4 – MNTHA
Let it be known I would happily like any of the 4 songs to win – great show! Even the #RigaBeaver!
I Think the Latvian Public and Jury will vote as follows
1 – Markus Riva
2 – Aminata
3 – ElektroFolk
4 – MNTHA
Ok – Time to leave the #RigaBeaver alone
The 4 acts are back on stage for the results!!!
4th – MNTHA
3rd – ElektroFolk
2nd – Markus Riva
1st – Aminata
Bravo Aminata – See you in Vienna!
