Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2011
There's no real big favorite this year imo, there are a lot of "could win" songs.
If Europe "gets" it, then France will win this thing like bookies seem to think. Vocally it's stunning, it's an opera-like song. Not worth the odds tho (2.75 or something like that).
Bosnia seems to be very popular, but I don't know. It sounds a bit dull and like a typical Balkan song, if that makes any sense.
UK's song is very slick, boyband-like. Not getting many votes from Eastern Europe I think.
Estonia, Azerbaijan and Hungary are hugely overrated imo, although that's always dangerous to say with neighbor-voting going on.
I fancy Sweden & Russia to do very well. It will attract a lot of woman and gay voters.
Denmark is another strong outsider. Easy popsong, which will do very well (like last year).
My personal favorite is Slovenia by a mile. Surprised it's not doing well at the books, but that's probably because it doesn't have many voting"friends".
