ESC 2014: all my reviews in one place
Once again the Eurovision Song Contest is upon us - next week we will know who qualifies for the big final and ultimately who carries off the trophy as well as the honour of hosting next year's event.
In many ways, this feels like an exciting and interesting year with many good and original songs. What is perhaps lacking are the obvious contenders, but that hopefully means we will have a tight and entertaining voting sequence with a close finish.
I spent the last month reviewing all the participating songs - perhaps I already had the time to change my mind here and there - but before I start trying to foresee any results for real I'd like to collect this year's reviews in one place, just like I did last year.
Armenia, Latvia, Estonia, Sweden, Iceland, Albania, Russia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Belgium, Moldova, San Marino, Portugal, Netherlands, Montenegro, Hungary
Malta, Israel, Norway, Georgia, Poland, Austria, Lithuania, Finland, Ireland, Belarus, FYR Macedonia, Switzerland, Greece, Slovenia, Romania
France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Denmark
Enjoy them all, read them, agree, disagree, comment. Next week is when the action starts for real. And until then, let's spend the time waiting together.
