That's right, dear readers. It's the time you've all been waiting for. Welcome back kind humans to my third annual Eurovision first impressions blog post!
Up for discussion are forty songs from forty countries. Armenia and Montenegro have returned to the competition after absences, whist Russia was barred from competing due to the ongoing war in Ukraine.
As for the writeup itself, it's a little different because I have company.
Joining me is good friend, long time Eurovision fan, and bop-lover Chelsea, whose comments can be distinguished from my own by the presence of a slightly yellow background. (Mine get “salmon.”)
Since we're very different people, with different tastes and writing styles, this livens things up considerably.
After somehow exercising the will-power to avoid listening to any of these songs, we sat down to listen to each and every one... together. All the way through.
