Eurovision, Seriously

The new Eurovision season unofficially starts tomorrow, but here's one last look back at 2023, in a lengthy blog post I originally planned to put together in late May, but... you know... things happen in life.

I was watching through the Unser Lied für Liverpool performances and to be honest I think the televote and jury both made the right choices. Lord of the Lost won the televote and I think they had the most unique and complete performance. Will Church won the jury, and I think it could have done well in Liverpool too!

The others, I don't really see doing better than LOTL, although I really liked Anica Russo's song, and I'd love to see Trong represent Germany with a better song.

Also I would like to thank the international juries for almost unanimously tanking Ikke Hüftgold's points. Jesus Christ, that was bad. Plus, he has a history of racism and sexism, so I'm glad Germany didn't send them.

LOTL's Eurovision result was obviously very disappointing, and I think the jury robbed them! The televote, I can understand, as this year was a band-heavy year, but the whole point of the jury is to apply their musical expertise, and they failed to do that. Although I suppose they wouldn't appreciate LOTL's song since the majority of them only have pop or classical expertise. ThePeaceAround did a great video on this topic which I would highly recommend!

Cha Cha Cha de Käärijä en boucle avec tous ses remix et reprises. 💚💪🏻🕺🍹
Un peu Auto jää (la seule autre de ses chansons que j'ai appréciée), Mama ŠČ de Let 3 (pas envie d'enquêter plus loin sur ce groupe, lol) ,Who the Hell is Edgar (je dois encore regarder le clip et me pencher sur leur discographie).

Et enfin le groupe slovène Joker Out, dont j'écoute tout, et qui est juste ma tasse de thé, je vais acheter leurs albums si ça continue. 😍
(mais Cha Cha Cha reste le vainqueur de l'Eurovision)

Ich hab den Gewinnersong des #eurovision2023 so oft gehört, dass er mir inzwischen gefällt. Danke, Privatradio.

So been radio silence for a bit now, mostly because for the last 5 weeks I was working on a job and NDAs and all of my energy was in it.

But now we're done, so I got the absolute pleasure (and pain) of working the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 as part of the sound team!

I'll share a little bit of the behind scenes stuff and try to explain what it was like.

It's been more than a week since the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 concluded, but my mind is working overtime and I'm working part-time so I wrote my thoughts regardless. Some of them actually make sense, I think. If you're deep into the world's oldest TV musical competition, maybe you'd like to look at my overlong analysis and fight over how wrong I am (my guess is 80%)

Got around to ripping my Eurovision 2023 CDs today.

I had honestly forgotten what a faff ripping CDs is!!!

Even more so when the CD data didn't load from a metadata provider 😖

I definitely didn't then make a playlist to put the songs in the grand final order 😅

& I'm definitely not going to make to further playlist that only contains the songs I liked...

... & possibly ones for the semi finals too 😅

Es kann nicht sein, dass die Jury des diesjährigen #ESC:s die Punkte fast ausschließlich an Schweden vergab. Es kann nicht sein, dass die #EBU eine Show fürs Publikum macht, jedoch nach der Punktevergabe der Jury gefühlt der Gewinner feststand. Für wenn macht man die Show überhaupt? Für die Jury oder fürs Publikum?

The fan reaction to Loreen winning was really disheartening... I get it, I wanted Käärijä to win too, but that doesn't excuse the vitriol she was thrown on social media. I think the conspiracy theory is fucking stupid too.

When Finland's entry was chosen, we all knew what it meant - massive televote victory, paltry sums with the jury. When Sweden's entry was chosen, we all knew it would win the jury and do relatively well with the televote. That's why the bookies got this right from the start - Loreen would clearly do better with the televote than Käärijä would do with the jury.

The idea that producers of Melodifestivalen, top Swedish songwriters, Loreen, and Martin Österdahl all conspired with each other to create a Swedish entry and then bribed the juries to vote for it is dumb, and it's baffling that people actually believe it

I'm not saying I like the jury, and it definitely needs reform, but it shouldn't be abolished (we don't need a repeat of the 2000s)

Anyway, this is unrelated, but my favourite Loreen song has to be her ATLAS version of Euphoria - it's hauntingly beautiful, and I wish she would release more songs like this!

#Eurovision #Eurovision2023 #Sweden #Finland #Loreen #Käärijä

This morning I clocked that my monkey paw wish which was granted in 2022 that Euphoria was no longer #esc250 number 1 fully had a round two. #Eurovision2023

There is no irony that a festival of Music in Europe (+Australia and Israel) united not only the people present but also a good part of those watching on TV, eclipses entirely a manufactured festival by a Govt celebrating a country turning its back on the major part of Europe, an act of self harm.

There's a petition aimed at the EBU for jury votes to be removed from Eurovision in light of the controversy over their skewed voting in Eurovision 2023.

I doubt the EBU will listen, but it's worth a shot to make sure that future winners are also the public's favourite.

Fellow #Eurovision fans: what songs are stuck in your head since the contest? I’ve had a constant rotation of Austria, Finland, Belgium, Portugal, Germany & Malta stuck in my head for the past week.

@SecurityWriter Great explanatory thread about #Eurovision2023. I don’t have a TV and haven’t watched it since childhood, so hadn’t understood some of the nuances.

For those who like numbers:

One quick reflection is that the public vote and the jury vote are really similar, and where the biggest difference between the two vote types were for Norway and Croatia.

Just wanted to say from the day after #Eurovision #Eurovision2023 #eurovision23:

* Finland was indeed robbed
* A massive thank you to to every server admin on the
#Fediverse who tried to keep their server going under the tsunami wave of posts about Eurovision - whether your server was #Mastodon, #Calckey, #Pixelfed, #Friendica, etc. You all did a fantastic job on the night, no matter the result. I would like to think everyone cannot thank you enough.
* Seeing everyone participate in Eurovision on the Fediverse was spectacular. I've never seen so much excitement and chatter before. I felt like I was part of a wholesome community - something I've longed for in other social media platforms, but never truly got with all the anger, aggression, and trolling. None of that was here, and it made the Fediverse absolutely beautiful!

Times Radio this morning - too much focus on Liverpool, nowhere near enough on Ukraine. C’mon folks, let’s remember WHY Eurovision was in Liverpool

The semifinal results have been declared:

1. #Finland 177 points

2. #Sweden 135 points

3. #Israel 127 points

And as we know, this was purely the public vote.

So yes, #Käärijä was robbed by the juries in the final.
