Eurovision 2019

milkboys Music, Music & Dance 8 Comments

Eurovision was a bit of a letdown this year. Even for a show that many people watch because of, not despite, the questionable quality of some of the entries, the average quality of the songs was very… average.

I’m happy that the Dutchies won but their song, performed by bisexual singer Duncan Laurence, was not exactly a super hit. Italy and Sweden were solid. Cyprus was actually pretty good. But the only performance that really managed to stand out was Iceland.

The queer, anti-capitalist punk/metal/industrial band Hatari delivered the only memorable moment of the show–as well as a mini scandal that made the organisers visibly nervous.

Sending this kind of song to Eurovision and not shying away from using the massive publicity the contest attracts with its 200 million viewers to make a statement was a bold choice.

See you next year in the Netherlands then! In the meantime an American version of Eurovision seems to be in the works. Of course by a bunch of Swedes, makes sense ;) (If you’re not a regular ESC watcher: Swedish song writers usually pen half of the songs performed at the contest).
