This is only just around the corner and I thought I would post the videos of the top 5 in the bettinghttp://www.oddschecker.com//specials/tv/eurovisionFavourite we have red hot favourites Sweden and "Euphoria".http://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Maybe the song contest will embrace this exciting futuristic sound but not yet.And the lyrics are in French.might be 12/5 favourite but red line through.Next we have the Russian offering at 10/1 second favouriteHere it ishttp://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Absolutely AWFUL!I know it speeds up a bit and the singing will be done by backing singers rather than all these grannies but it really is awful and even allowing for some iron curtain comradeship I cannot see it winning.Red line through.Next we have Italy's offering by a cheeky little thing cakked Ninna SilliA bit like Amy Winehouse meets Ninah Cherryhttp://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...It's ok and sung in English but forgettable I'm afraid.Red line through.Next at 16/1 we have the UK and good old Englebert Humperdinkhttp://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...He may be old and it may be 16/1 and we may be opening the show but do not underestimate this excellent song by a polished, professional and well known international star. Tremendous value and one for the shortlist.I'm backing it.Next we have Denmark also at 16/1 "Should have known better"http://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Worth watching the video when it finally gets goingITs a modern song and in English. Place chances.Finally Serbia- neighbour of the host country.A handsome Christiano lookalike called Željko JoksimovicSong has an intro too long but apart from that there is not much to fault it as a ballad except not in English.Takes a while to get going but good East meets west chorus.Overall too dreary so place propects at best.http://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Next Spain again at about 16/1pleasant melody ballad by a saucy little minx called Pastora SolerTakes too long to get going and not in Englishhttp://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Next we have Ireland represented by Jedwardhttp://www.eurovision.tv/page/history/year/participant-profi...Truly crap in my view but could run into a place because visually good.Conclusion.It's Englebert all day for me.Going to lump on win and place.Best song by a mile in my view.
