Gunther Is Back In Finland!
Yesterday Finland held a 10-song national final including two “novelty” entries that were actually notable and enjoyable. First, GUNTHER IS BACK! Along with D'Sanz, his song “Love Yourself” is more of the same. Gunther has not changed at all and we need a dose of him every couple of years.
Second, Club La Perse were carrying the 90's club kid look and life into 2017 Eurovision with “My Little World.” It was much catchier than it should have been and you can't say they didn't try.
The United Kingdom held their final on Friday which wasn't streamed internationally. “I Don't Wanna Fight” by Salena Mastroianni is notable for dropping the title of Ireland's 2013 entry. Did voters avoid selecting this song in order to avoid a similar result?
Next week: The final in Switzerland, and semifinals and heats from Hungary, Latvia Lithuania, Sweden, and hosts Ukraine!
