🇳🇴 Melodi Grand Prix Pre-Qualified acts..

Jorn made it through!
1. 🇳🇴 Atle Petersen - "World On Fire"

Structure- 8
Contrast- 6
Dynamics- 6
Overall Effect- 7
Score- 27
Comment- This is a really good song. I remember listening to it at first and just loving it. It is a simple song, however I find it to be massively effective and catchy. He's got good vocals, not that strong live, I feel like he could majorly benefit from having a backing track which is allowed this year but yeah this was certainly enjoyable!
2. 🇳🇴 Kaja Rode - "Feel Again"

Structure- 7
Contrast- 6
Dynamics- 6
Overall Effect- 8
Score- 27
Comment- This song has grown on me. If I wrote this review 2 weeks I would be completely ripping it apart but it is just such a catchy song. She kills this live and I think that she has a good chance at getting top 4. I don't understand how she's last in betting odds.
3. 🇳🇴 Rein Alexander - "Eyes Wide Open"

Structure- 7
Contrast- 5
Dynamics- 5
Overall Effect- 5
Score- 22
Comment- Now. The live version of this lifts it a bit but god I don't want to be preached at for three minutes straight, put some effort into your lyrics instead of using the same bloody cringy words we hear year after year. This is a James Bond reject and I am really disappointed because I do really like Rein and loved his song last year One Last Breath. This is such a downgrade and Raylee should've took his pass to the final.
4. 🇳🇴 Stavangerkameratene - "Who I Am"

Structure- 5
Contrast- 6
Dynamics- 5
Overall Effect- 6
Score- 22
Comment- This has zero memorability to it. Every time I listen to this song it still feels like I haven't listened to it before because I have literally forgotten what the lyrics is and the song in general is a snoozefest. I personally don't think this should've got a gold pass.
5. 🇳🇴 TIX - "Ut Av Mørket"

Structure- 6
Contrast- 7
Dynamics- 6
Overall Effect- 6
Score- 25
Comment- I don't really understand why this got the gold pass to the final, I just don't connect with it maybe because it's in Norwegian but I did hear he's changing it to English and if that's true then I have no hope with it as we all know what happens when artists change their songs from native language to English, it normally ends up not doing well. Yeah I'll be on the toilet when this song is on.
Final rankings
1. 🇳🇴 KEiiNO - "Monument" 10
2. 🇳🇴 Jorn - "Faith Bloody Faith" 10

🇳🇴 Melodi Grand Prix Heat 4 Review..

0 hellocat, Feb 6, 2021

Let's Start!
1. 🇳🇴 KiiM - "My Lonely Voice"

Structure- 8
Dynamics- 8
Contrast- 8
Overall Effect- 9
Score- 35
Comment- This is up there with some of my favourite national final songs of this year. I really adore his voice and the song is just so beautiful. The lyrics are heart-breaking, his voice is out of this world and I will have to see if he can make it even better live because if he flops vocally then he is not advancing and Royane will go to the final.
2. 🇳🇴 Marianne Pentha, Mikkel Gaup - "Pages"

Structure- 5
Dynamics- 6
Contrast- 5
Overall Effect- 4
Score- 20
Comment- I'm not a fan of this. The sami doesn't go well with the song and I think many people will compared this to KEiiNO and well we know which one is much better. It just doesn't grab my attention and is certainly a song I'd go to the bathroom when listening. There's nothing special with this song.
3. 🇳🇴 Landeveiens Helter - "Alt det der"

Structure- 4
Dynamics- 5
Contrast- 3
Overall Effect- 3
Score- 15
Comment- I can't connect with this song (mainly because I don't speak Norweigan, it' rather weak and I didn't feel anything when listening to it. The chorus does pick up and I do find it fun and danceable at times but this is a very weak effort and I don't think they stand a chance in this heat.
4. 🇳🇴 Royane - "Circus"

Structure- 5
Dynamics- 7
Contrast- 7
Overall Effect- 6
Score- 25
Comment- Here's this semi's Emmy, Stina & Raylee. The woman with the really basic cheap song that everyone goes wild for. Who's next? Lisa Vassiliseva. This is trash I'm sorry I can't get into this song. It's better than song number 2 & 3 for it's catchiness but it's absolutely intolerable other than it.
My Rankings
1. 🇳🇴 KiiM - "My Lonely Voice" 8.5
2. 🇳🇴 Royane - "Circus" 2.5
3. 🇳🇴 Landeveiens Helter - "Alt det der" 1.5
4. 🇳🇴 Marianne Pentha, Mikkel Gaup - "Pages" 1.5

🇵🇹 Festival da Canção Review Pt 2..

2 hellocat, Jan 26, 2021

Part 2! Tagging rodrigueseve because I know he is Portuguese. Also if you do want to be added on like a tag list so you can keep up with my reviews just drop a comment
1. 🇵🇹 Karetus & Romeu Bairos - "Saudade"

Structure- 7

Contrast- 8
Overall Effect- 8
Score- 30
Comment- This one I was most excited about because everyone was hyping it up and saying how good it is. And I'm not lying when I tell you that I DESPISE this. This is just a typical Portugal entry, they hold a nf that as of now I am enjoying and then the end result a song that I don't like at all ends up winning. I am hoping that another song can win but if this is the favourite than Portugal might be looking at another last place in my rankings.
2. 🇵🇹 mema. - "Claro como água"

Comment- This was very atmospheric, and I did enjoy it, her voice is very pleasant and the music was nice, some parts did make the song sound cheap and didn't really fit the mood of the song but it was a nice song and one I wouldn't be mad with if it won.

Comment- Nope what is happening, this nf is going downhill. I can't sit through this for 3 minutes without yawning, it's pitiful. It is romantic but I would most certainly make sure I take a leak during the song because sitting through it is painful.

Comment- This reminds me of Calum Scott's "You Are The Reason" especially in the chorus. I had to stop what I was doing because this song really caught my attention. As someone who had an absolutely horrific year with Covid in 2020 and someone who lost a parent, this song resonated me in such a way I found myself quite emotional, like me mbron by Xhesika Polo, this song is such a beauty and I hope it resonates with Portugal so we can get this man to Eurovision because it will do well. Great message and great song!

TRASH #eurovision
i expected norway's to be garbage anyways because at this point it's set up for k*iino to win and every song released for the selection save for ONE so far is meh to abhorrent and even then that one great song was put in a duel with a song that everyone else is going to eat up AND had a great performance
lithuania's results are cracked once again: men with mediocre songs get through while actual good entries (cosmic bride, sunday afternoon) get left behind for being "weird" at least aiste brokenleg and evita cololo made it through thank god

🇵🇹 Festival da Canção Review Pt 1..

1 hellocat, Jan 23, 2021

This is going to be a two-parter because there's 20 acts. I'll listen to the first 10 in this blog, and then follow up with the other ten whenever. I also have to cover Pabandom today so this is a 3 blog treat :) I haven't really liked Portugal at Eurovision, the last time I remotely like done of their entries was in 2014 with Suzy so I'm not hugely excited
1. 🇵🇹 Ana Tereza - "Com um abraço"

Score- 23
Comment- This is actually a nice start to Portugal's National selection. The backing music is really intriguing and her vocals shine in this song. If Portugal keeps this up they might just break the streak of bad songs.

Comment- I'm a bit speechless at this, she really showed off her vocals huh? Hopefully she can kill this live! I really liked it and I don't know what she's saying, but I feel every word. She really shines in this song.

Comment- Someone needs to tell me what this song is about because this made me emotional! She really sung from the heart in this and I fell in love. I don't really want Portugal to send a ballad but I wouldn't be mad if this won.
4. 🇵🇹 Da Chick - "I Got Music"

Contrast- 4
Overall Effect- 7
Score- 21
Comment- The way she says yall XD. This is so good I love it. It's got personality, sass and it would be so good on the Eurovision. Two problems though: I'm pretty sure they wouldn't send a song in English and she does need to focus on her singing. I really liked this, one of my favourites!

🇳🇴 Melodi Grand Prix Heat 2 Review..

0 hellocat, Jan 21, 2021

It is time for the Second heat of MGP. I was sad that Jorn was eliminated, but at least Blasemafian won against Stina. It was a good watch, and I got to see KEiiNO perform live again. This week 4 more songs will compete and I will review each of them! Let's get into this.
1. 🇳🇴 Daniel Owen - "Psycho"

Structure- 7
Dynamics- 6
Contrast- 6
Overall Effect- 7
Score- 26
Comment- At the beginning, I feel like I'm in a mental institute? But to be honest I do like the start of the song. Then it kicks in, I really enjoyed the simplicity of the song and it was massively catchy, he reminds me of a better version of Charlie Puth. This is my favourite of this heat but out of the entire MGP, hell no.
2. 🇳🇴 Ketil Stokkan - "My Life Is OK"

Structure- 3
Dynamics- 1
Contrast- 3
Overall Effect- 2
Score- 9 (I think thats even a bit generous)
Comment- It's alright until 00:17 then instantly I want to skip. This is massively boring and it's just a repetitive loop for 3 minutes. This has it's age range but I can't sit through this for no longer than two minutes. The lyrics are all over the place aswell, 'Some say that my lyrics are sad' yes I would agree.
3. 🇳🇴 Maria Solheim - "Nordlyset"

Structure- 3
Dynamics- 4
Contrast- 5
Overall Effect- 2
Score- 14
Comment- This is a song that I'll only listen to if I'm depressed and want more of a reason to kill myself.
4. 🇳🇴 Raylee - "Hero"

Structure- 7
Dynamics- 7
Contrast- 6
Overall Effect- 7
Score- 27
Comment- This song is growing on me. At first I was very disappointed of this and understood why they left Raylee out of getting a AQ spot (though it is better than TIX), but after 3 or 4 listens I am starting to like it. I am excited to watch her on the stage because I think this song can really elevate live and the song is incredibly catchy and stays in my head for ages. Not better than Wild, but the best from this heat for sure.
My Rankings
1. 🇳🇴 Raylee - "Hero" 8
2. 🇳🇴 Daniel Owen - "Psycho" 6.5
3. 🇳🇴 Maria Solheim - "Nordlyset" 2.5
4. 🇳🇴 Ketil Stokkan - "My Life Is OK" 2

🇮🇱 HaShir Shelanu L'Eurovizion Review..

0 hellocat, Jan 17, 2021

Eden Alene is back!! And she's better than ever! Today I'll be reviewing her 3 songs for the Israeli National Selection.
1. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "La La Love"

Structure- 8
Contrast- 7
Dynamics- 8
Overall Effect- 8
Score- 31
Comment- I don't care if people think the lyrics are cringe, this is a party and I'm adoring it. I do think the message behind the song us a bit early considering we are not out of the forest but this is a bop. Eden really lifts the song aswell and really shows off her personality. This will be amazing on stage and will be a major dark horse.
2. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "Set Me Free"

Structure- 9
Contrast- 10
Dynamics- 9
Overall Effect- 6
Score- 34
Comment- This is probably Eden's best shot at qualifying. I don't have much to say. I like how it goes from a ballad to this cute little jazz song, When the songs begins to break and she does that key change she absolutely kills it! One I am definitely rooting for!
3. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "Ue La La"

Structure- 9
Contrast- 9
Dynamics- 9
Overall Effect- 7
Score- 34
Comment- This is the strongest song of the national final, and my favourite pre-revamp. However, something about it bugs me, it is growing on me and Eden would definitely destroy this live. This needs the right amount staging cause we can't have too little or too much happening.
My Rankings
1. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "La La Love" 9.5
2. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "Set Me Free" 9.5
3. 🇮🇱 Eden Alene - "Ue La La" 7
