  1. Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2015 I'd love a Belgium top 5 - they were 120/1 on Betfair at the start of the week. It will certainly get jury love for being at the Eurovision cutting edge. Don't think it can top the public polls though.
  2. Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2015 I see Sweden are drawn in the first half. I think they should be ok if they have a place in the teens.
  3. Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2015 I totally agree about Israel. But it was worth watching to see Sweden's entry. Now while it's not to my taste I recognise a very strong candidate for winner.

  6. Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2015 I think I'd like to make a case for Italy here. It seems such a strong song - the performers look great on stage and powerful voices are often rewarded in Eurovision. I remember a couple of years ago a God-awful Albanian song doing well just because the performer had such a range - it didn't matter that her voice was actually pretty ugly in the higher register, people respected the performance nonetheless. Now you can always say opera didn't work for France but I remember that performance was extremely flat and just did not appeal. The jury system should fav
