Watch out for the Netherlands entry (number 6 in the running order). Three sisters who sing phenomenally good close harmony in a country-pop style. They were in the junior Eurovision finals about 10 years ago and were the first vocal group to win 'The Voice' anywhere in the world.

OG3NE - Lights and Shadows

The song is dedicated to their mother who has an incurable form of cancer.

A seriously musical slice of superior vocal work that should bring shivers to the spine.
Even that is'nt enough good reason to wach Euro song crap...

I liked the song from Finland. 'Blackbird' - it should have made the final.

The Eurovision Song Contest was the only positive reason I could see for leaving Europe, but they let Australia enter so I suppose we are stuck with it.

It's the Eurovision song contest not the EU song contest. As Mrs May says we have not left Europe (just the EU eventually). It will be interesting if Brexit means we get Nil Point or do rather better than of late.
