Eurovision 2018, Semi-Final 1
Here are my thoughts on each of the acts in the first semi-final of 2018’s Eurovision Song Contest.
Not a bad song, but not a particularly interesting one, either. Some nice staging and choreography, but not exceptional.
Absolutely cringeworthy song. Nice suit, though.
Weird song. Weird performance. Weird staging. I’m not sure I liked it, exactly, but it was interesting, at least.
5. Czech Republic
Not really my sort of music, but the performance was crazy enough that this has got to be my favourite of the evening so far.
Boring song, but the way video clips of …seemingly random people… were overlayed on top of the live performance was quite interesting.
Everything about this was insane. I… kinda liked it.
Bland song, but I like what was done with the rose motif.
Not bad. Not brilliant.
11. F.Y.R. Macedonia
Yet another dull entry.
Again, not terrible. But nothing special.
Pleasant song. Interesting way they had the singer on a platform. Otherwise largely forgettable.
Not outstanding, but it’s nice to have a non-English song for a change.
A relatively tame but very competent entry. Probably one of my favourites.
Back to the bland.
Quite a decent song. Nice hat, too!
Choreography was decent, but the song was very drab.
One of the stronger acts of the evening. Song was alright, and the performance and choreography were good.
