What a strange performance! Two twins connected by their hair and a sun rising by the hand of a portuguese man! Well, at least the singers that won Eurojunior are doing a great vocal job! Russia will only do it because it's Russia! There are better performances in this semifinal!
The land of fire starting a fire with some acrobatics to give more movement to this ballad. If you remember Maya Sar from Bosnia, you will understand that this song has nothing new! Th eperformance is good!
One of the best performances of this semifinal coming from an average song. This is Eurovision - the capacity of transforming a very regular into somethins spectacular for the viewers. Is it already in the final! Probably fighting for a Top 5!

The modern cinderella of eurovision Azerbaijan announced today the song, which will represent the Eurovision host of 2012 in Copenhagen. The land of fire, which lighted the fire as host, will try again to start a fire in 2014. Dilara Kazimova was selected in a kind of eurovision casting show and won some weeks ago this show and the song was released today. The most eastern country of eurovision just started in 2008 in Serbia taking part and made as new cover a 8th place, until today the worst ranking on the scoreboard, since 2009 the land of fire only had top 5 rankings. Azerbaijan will sing in the first semi final his very nice ballad and will be one of two ballads in this semi final and fight once again for a ticket to the final, where the country until today never missed.

As Autumn comes, the number of new releases in the music industry increases. For Eurovision Artists, after some summer hits attempts it is also time for new releases. So, since the starting of september and during the next weeks we will find new vídeos and songs from Eurovision Artists, all around Europe.
The changes are also big in our weekly chart. After summer the number of votes rises significantly and the movements across TOP 20 are evident.
This week, we can find a new entry at number one, which is something very rare for our chart, by the Azerbeijaini winning duo Ell & Nikki. Alsou made it to the number 2 coming up 17 places. Those big changes in the 2 higher positions of the chart made all the others entries come down.
Among all these falls in the chart, there are two songs that are still coming up. Jalisse is back to number 5, coming up 2 places, while the artist with more number ones ever in our chart, Fabrizio Faniello, up 2 places with the song that won this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza in Malta!

Since their victory in 2011 Ell & Nikki went separated ways. Nikki released her 1st solo album last year, a string of singles including some collaborations. On other hand Ell is constructing a shyer solo career and we’re still waiting for his 1st solo album.
But now they are back with their 1st release since Running Scared. Music is Still Alive is their new offering and is dedicated to the king of Pop, Michael Jackson. The song is inspired by Jackson’s Human Nature - P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)- which was the sixth single from Michael's sixth album, Thriller.

It is common every year that certain countries can exchange votes between then. Cultural reasons might be behind that fact, like musical sounds, languages, popularity of artists in different countries, etc.
Apart from that, this year seems to be a bit more polemical. First, the fact that “on Saturday, hours before the Final, an undercover video surfaced in Lithuanian media, apparently showing how two individuals approached people to cast large amounts of votes in favor of one particular entry” (source: eurovision.tv). About this, EBU already responded to media reports on voting. Ola Sand, said "I have been around at the Eurovision Song Contest since 1998, and every year there are rumors about irregularities in the voting. Particularly this year, we felt it was time to firmly deal with these rumors" (source: eurovision.tv) and said that “If we find any clear evidence that the Rules are being breached, including attempts of power-voting, we act immediately to do what we are obliged to do on behalf of the Members: to protect the Eurovision Song Contest brand."
The second interesting fact is Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev has ordered an inquiry into why his country gave Russia "nul points" at Saturday's Eurovision Song Contest. Voters and the official Azerbaijan jury in fact gave strong backing to the Russian entry, according to officials, but Azerbaijan's state broadcaster suggested there may have been voting violations. (source: BBC News).
Not far from these voting problems, Thomas Schreiber, coordinator of the German public station ARD, said that it is not clear that the 18 points that Germany got were to Angela Merkel, but they were not only because of Cascadas song. Cascada was not the only to be judged on stage but all the country.. Was the lack of popularity of the country the reason for the bad result, since Germany is considered the face of the austerity measures in Europe? (source: Reuters)
Like Ola Sand said, "we believe that the Song Contest's apolitical spirit is a cornerstone of its enduring success, and we will do all we can to protect it".
