It’s Eurovision week and the competition is back for another year. Something that used to be a reliably annual event missed last year and so it’s back with a vengence this time.
The usual razzle dazzle is expected although with a smaller crowd. Host Rotterdam is averaging over 5,000 covid cases per day so a somewhat muted reception is to be expected.
Gatecrashers Australia are phoning in their entry this year. A somewhat handicap for performer Montaigne who is already at long odds to do well in the competition.
Instead it’s Italy, Malta, France and Switzerland providing the favourites while Iceland’s Daoi og Gagnamagnio’s 10 Years is a dark horse tip. No word if a dark horse will actually turn up, but this being Eurovison, it would be foolish to rule that out.
