Eurovision First Semi Finals

Hello guys!
I think somebody needs to write this kind of article / post. Have you seen the first semi finals of Eurovision Song Contest?
Well, I did and I'm disappointed.
Why? It has all lost its meaning. It's not about music anymore. Almost every country was presented with songs on English language. The exceptions are Austria which was presented with a French song and my fatherland - Bosnia and Herzegovina which was presented with a BOSNIAN song.
Guess what? They didn't make it to the finals. This is happening the first time in history.
I was reading through some comments on Eurovision Song Contest's official page on Facebook and I was surprised how many people actually think like I do!
The weird thing about this was that some countries were unable to vote. Could someone please explain this to me because I do not understand it?
On this contest, singers come to present their country and I wonder how could that be possible when you sing on different language or you are not from that country?
I'm so sad to say this but I think that everything is went to hell (sorry for my expression)!
I'm not just talking about Bosnia and Herzegovina, I think that there were a lot of great performances that should've been rewarded with the finals but who am I to even talk about this? I can change nothing and this hurts a little bit... I was always for justice. No matter what was it about.
If my country was bad, okay, it didn't deserved finals and I don't have a right to talk about it. But I felt proud when they were performing, I felt like this was our year to finally shine in the sea of great and not so great performances. Ana's passion, Deen & Dalal's talents and Jala's incredible rapping made me shudder from pride. No that they only did a great job with the singing part, but the choreography sent a great message not just to the Europe, but to the whole world.
The choreography was about the refugees (that is why the string was between Deen & Dalal).
I don't know... I liked my country's performance and I think we deserved the finals along with Montenegro, Iceland and some other countries.
By the way, congrats to the countries that made it to the finals, especially our neighboring country- Croatia!

What do you think?
Watch their performance and tell me down bellow! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  6. I'm not watching this show, I think I'm missing something. But I really enjoyed your honest "rant" about the disappointment you've kept because of the results.

    Lovely post anyway.

  10. That's sad to know about your country's rep not making it to the finals. Australia still has to perform later, let's see how will Dami Im go. I actually only watch this show towards the later part like who's in the top 3. But now you're making me aware about the semi-finals :) Great post!

  12. I didn't watch the show, but I'm sorry to hear that they didn't make it. It's really upsetting when the group you are rooting for don't make it.
    By the way, I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Miranda Sings award :)

  18. Okay, I'm about to be very blunt and I'm sorry in advance. I think yes, Eurovision has changed over the year. But I'm not exactly upset that more participants sing in English. I like to understand what people are singing about and in order to do so, I need to know the language. And let's be honest here, I can't learn all the languages. But the majority of people understand English, so it's kind of understandable to sing in this language. But that's just my point of view. Now for the voting part. Countries can vote in semis only when they are in that semi. For example, if Greece is in the first semi, then Greece people can only vote in the first one. But if Russia isn't in the first one, it can't vote. That's the rules and they have been there since forever now.
    And I'm sorry that you feel disappointed about not going through but you need to remember that it is just a contest when people nowadays vote for catchy, good beat, good performance songs. And your country sang in their language and people didn't understand it and they didn't vote. That's how it works. It's cruel, but it's true. Also, no matter how good people sing, viewers vote for their neighbors (like you were cheering for Croatia) and that's why some countries go through even if they didn't really deserve it. They only have more neighbors.

  19. Potpuno si upravu sa svime sto si napisala :) Ja sam nekada obozavala da gledam Evroviziju sa svojom porodicom i to mi je predstavljalo pravo uzivanje, ali sada se vise glasanje ne svodi na tome ko ima najlepsu pesmu, nego ko ima najvise koristi od toga kome ce dati glas. Meni je ovo stvarno glupo. Ja smatram da je Bosna i Hercegovina imala jako lepo pesmu i starno je zasluzila da prodje dalje, ali eto... Takodje, mislim kako je bilo bas hrabro pevati na svom jeziku i ja to podrzavam :) Drago mi je sto si napisala post na ovu temu, bas sam zelela da cujem jos neko misljenje o ovogodisnjoj Evroviziji <3 <3 <3

  21. Razumijem otkud ideš Vildana,ali stvar je da oni uopće ne razumiju pjesme na našim jezicima.Hrvatska je sve nastupe prije pjevala na hrvatskom jeziku i nismo uopće nigdje prošli.Ponajprije predstavljaš glas iz svoje zemlje ne nužno jezik i to je hrvatska pjesma,samo na engleskom jeziku.Govorim kao primjer,možda to nije baš poanta toga,ali opet ponavljam,kada ti se pjesma više sviđa,kada djelomično razumiješ tekst ili uopće nemaš pojma o čemu ta osoba pjeva ? Kada ne razumiješ jezik na kojim je pjesma pjevana,ne razumiješ ni pjesmu i to njima nije dovoljno,pogotovo ako pjesma nema neki ubitačan ritam.Meni je iskreno žao što Bosna nije prošla jer je pjesma stvarno dobra,ali oni jednostavno ne razumiju tekst i to je veliki problem.
    Vrijeme prolazi,sve se mijenja pa se moramo svi prilagoditi. :)

    1. Ne slažem se s tobom. Valjda je cilj ovog takmičenja da svaka zemlja kroz pesmu (a samim tim i preko jezika) predstavi svoju zemlju. Svakom se prvo zasviđa melodija pesme, pa tek onda dublje razmišlja o tekstu, a skoro svako ima internet, pa može naći prevod pesme koja mu se dopada. Mislim da celo takmičenje gubi smisao time što se sve pesme pevaju na engleskom. Ne treba se prilagođavati, već biti jedinstven!

  22. Slažem se sa tobom! Pesma je vrh, savršeno su otpevali, posebno mi se dopao Jalin deo. Sviđa mi se i to što su pevali na maternjem jeziku, a ne na engleskom. Evrovizija mi više gubi smisao kad svaka država peva pesmu na engleskom. Valjda je cilj ovog takmičenja da svaka zemlja kroz pesmu (a samim tim i preko jezika) predstavi svoju zemlju. Ja sam iz Srbije i naša pesma mi se jako dopada. Jedino mi se ne dopada što nije na srpskom, ali okej. Sve u svemu, mislim da ste zaslužili bar ulazak u finale. :)

  28. Portugal has always participated in this festival but it is made of many interests. This is noted on the score for years. This year we are not in competition because we were excluded last year. We remain faithful and sing in our language. No vote for us! Each country should sing in their language.

    I´m seeing at this moment the second semifinal. xo

  29. ja sam se odavno razočarala u Eurosong, još prije par godina kada Kaliopi nije ostvarila dobar rezultat, a po meni je bila to najbolja pjesma na Euroviziji svih vremena...Tako da sam ove godine slabo pratila, a večeras sam gledala samo Kaliopin nastup. Žao mi je što je ispala BIH, pjesma je bila zanimljiva, a i nastup je bio energičan i dobro pripremljen, ali neću se živcirati jer znam da to i nije nekakvo ozbiljno natjecanje već zabavni show neke vrste.

  30. I have stand by justice too and even though I don't know much about this contest, I feel sad and a bit mad too! I hope somebody from the contest will notice people's comments about their contest and change it back ASAP. :)
