Someone told the male host that Tartan was the new Black – he has gone to town! Probably Glasgow from the looks of it!

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 :-/

MNTHANefelibata

Garrett’s Thought :

Ever wondered what Sia would look like with a haircut? Well think no more as MNTHA certainly shows us the way!

Sia Got a Haircut 2

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.

Garrett’s Comments

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.

InCulto

 

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.

ElektroFolf Final 2

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 RivaTake me down

Garrett’s Comments

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!

Markus

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!

Markus Shirtless

 

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

Police Line-Up

 

Ok – They are showing local polls and pics of Markuis’ Fans – as you can see they are all girls

Markus Fans

 

 

WOW – They got Phil Collins and Genesis on Supernova and hasn’t Phil’s hair grown!

Phil CollinsGenesis

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!

DONS

 

 

Ok – The guy in the white t-shirt looks bored. I think he needs a hug from the #RigaBeaver

They Look Bored

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.

Brainstorm

Voting is closed!
