Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf/Germany was a blast !
The ESPRIT Arena had 31,000+ people. The audience was in a fantastic mood.
The stage and the big LED-screen (width: 60 meters!) was super most impressive. I’m sure it’s hard to beat THAT !
All artists in the final-show were superb. Almost no entry of which I might have to say: THIS IS A NO GO!
I’m happy for Azerbaijan. I liked the song & the visuals. And my prediction said: Azerbaijan might be a winner. So, better believe me next time :))
Personally, I totally dig this one, as well… Fantastic voice, tasteful visuals… Amaury Vassili – France
Also, this entry was super-nicely done. music & visual perfectly matched!
Paradise Oskar – Finland
Short comments on these final-show entries:
Austria: Great composition and fab female singer
Azerbaijan: winner song, top notch production (sweden producer team).
Bosnia & Herzegovina: good groove
Denmark: “typical” ESC-anthem, good one
Estonia: ouch… the peaks were painful… but catchy song though..
Finland: catchy tune, great visuals.
France: one of my faves in advance. fabulous singer, composition and live-performance (visuals!). goose-bumps.
Georgia: nice song, awful clothes.
Germany: good song – but not for ESC. interesting performance though!
Greece: I hated the rapper, the voice of the singer is full of passion. great.
Hungary: was rocking the stage. strong voice.
Ireland: the twins in lady gaga style. love it or hate it :-))
Italy: I’m so happy that this entry ended up 2nd place!
Lithuania: disney-ish composition.
Moldova: yes, that made my day. so refreshing!!! 🙂
Serbia: 60’s are back.nice one.
Slovenia: christina aguilera. strong voice. but didn’t impress me at all…
Spain: they just don’t get to send good songs/artists to ESC.
Sweden: singer out of tune, but obviously good looking. song was ok.
Switzerland: charming. nothing more, nothing less.
Ukraine: good song, but nobody listened to the song due to the sand-painter in the background 😉
United Kingdom: oooh.. bad. out of tune, strange performance …
…just search on YOUTUBE for the videos. type “ESC 2011” and the country you want to watch…
Worth to mention: the opener was FREAKING AWESOME !!!!!!! lots of surprising elements:
… also, the show by Jan Delay. Pure funky music and he rocked the stage!
(Dear America. In case you’re confused about what Eurovision is… think of your Superbowl half time show… but lasting for 10 hours 😉
