Eurovision Bingo Rules for Tonight!

get ready to mark your Eurovision Bingo Leaves! Of course, if you want to have a shot of the drink every time you see one of these things, you’re welcome, but drinking is not mandatory. You can just shout “Hola, mise babe. Llame, llamame!” Instead, or whatever you prefer. you do you. Here’s what I’ve got on my list:

  • A dress change!
  • Weird musical instrument!
  • A whimsical key and/or speed change!
  • Somebody says the evenings/songs have been “amazing”!
  • Unnecessary use of French language!
  • Strong hand wash!
  • Dress with cut-outs!
  • Someone jumped off the stage!
  • A guitar solo!
  • Scary Ghosts!
  • Someone is waving the flag of Ukraine in the crowd!
  • Someone is performing at Eurovision again!

I’ll try and call them. and also try not to get into complicated arguments about musicology whether something is technically A significant change or not. We all know that cynical rising key for the final set of choruses changes when you hear it.

Angela Gifrida

If you’re looking for songs that can bring Ukraine closer, Mahmoud & Blanco’s Brividy on the streaming service Spotify has been a streaming monster with over 82 million plays. Can Italy win two finals in a row? Last year’s winners, Menskin, told our Angela Gifrida in Turin that winning it changed her life:

It wasn’t long ago that menschins were busking the streets of Rome, performing for four hours straight, even if only one person was watching. So the winners of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest couldn’t believe their luck when the Rolling Stones invited them to open a concert in the US in November, giving them their first chance to perform in front of thousands of spectators.

“We thought, fuck yeah, we’re not going to reject it,” bassist Victoria De Angelis said in an interview with the Guardian with three of her bandmates in Turin ahead of the Eurovision 2022 finals.

“Our life has completely changed” [since Eurovision], We haven’t stopped. We are experiencing a lot of crazy… things we dreamed we never thought would come true. ,

For the most part, Eurovision winners are increasingly forgotten. But since their show-stopping performance of Zitti a Buoni in Rotterdam last May, Menskin has not only achieved an unmatched level of global success for an Italian rock band, they’ve also been able to strike a chord with youth with their upbeat rock and intense lyrics. Inspiring a generation.

“We are super privileged, but we experienced some tough times when we started out in music. We were being super judged — on our makeup, nail polish and how we dressed — that it was hard to keep going,” frontman Damiano David said.

It probably doesn’t make sense if you haven’t seen all the songs yet, but this exquisite Tumblr post sets out the ideal conditions for listening to each of this year’s 40 entries.

Sample Content: “In a Dirty Basement with Hot People”, “In 2003, With Low-Slung Jeans and a Thick Coating of Bad Gal Eyeliner”, “Half of a Pint of Ice Cream, Under a Duvet”.

Ideal conditions for listening to the songs of Eurovision 2022 from Ellie Made It

before tonight’s show i talked Evan Spence from ESC InsightWhich is a website and podcast that follows Eurovision all year long instead of Johnny-cum-Latelies like me who have just reached the finals.

I asked him to explain one of the controversies that is going to come up during tonight’s finals – “Kinetic Sun”. Here’s what Ivan told me:

That’s why the Italians wanted to have an LED screen. Everyone does There is a large LED screen behind the stage. Then there’s a bundle of arches that are attached, which also have LED screens. Those arches also rotate so that you have a wall of lights instead of LEDs.

So far so good, it sounds great. except …

The problem is that for whatever reason, it spins more slowly than expected. They thought it would be able to rotate within the length of a postcard, so one song might have an LED screen, the next song might have a wall of lights. But instead it is locked in one position. And it is locked in that position which is the wall of lights, not the LED screen. So those functions that just want the effect of illumination? They are all good. His performance is fine. Who needed an LED screen? When you see them on screen, they now have this big blank rainbow cutout in front of their videos, and it just looks bad.

Oh.

The UK is going into Eurovision this year with a bit of optimism about Sam Ryder’s song. Rachel Arosti spoke to her and the people behind the song:

Sam Ryder, preparing for Saturday’s final in Turin – mainly by trying to avoid catching a Covid or cold. “You don’t want to be on that stage in front of 200 million people who have a scratchy throat,” he says. But he is not getting away from the hurdles of the bookies. “We’re flattered, but it’s just a number, so let’s not get hyped,” he says, sporting his trademark grin.

If space man succeeds, it will be no fluke: this year, the UK’s strategy for choosing a Eurovision entry has undergone a much-needed change. For most of the competition’s history, the UK candidate has been chosen through a televised contest, but in 2021 the BBC enlisted the help of record label BMG. The upcoming Null Issue disaster inspired TAP Music’s Ben Mawson and Ed Millett – known for managing major pop stars such as Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding and Dua Lipa, as well as indie darlings such as Caroline Polachek and Purity Ring. Are – to join.

Sam Ryder – UK entry for 2022

The pair believed that the UK was wasting an opportunity to showcase a promising artist to a huge global audience. They were also convinced that there were some easy fixes in the UK situation. “The bottom line was: Why, in the home of some of the most amazing pop music in the world, are we doing so much worse every year?” Mawson says.

San Marino There’s another big loss from tonight’s show. akil lauroStripper’s staging totally killed it on Thursday, and I’m a little excited it didn’t progress. How often do you see a lace-clad man over a studded leather red Bucking Bronco on your telly on Saturday nights, eh? Just look at this…

Eurovision Bingo Rules for Tonight!

I’ll try and call them. and also try not to get into complicated arguments about musicology whether something is technically A significant change or not. We all know that cynical rising key for the final set of choruses changes when you hear it.

The sheer number of entries these days means we have to be in the semi-finals, but it is also sad that few acts would have added a lot of joy to tonight’s event. I don’t like the song but Georgia Sent What I Can Only Describe As “Steampunk Kula Shaker” circus mirkus Singing Lock Me In.

It was a bit of a crazier game, but the spectators decided to forcefully exclude him from tonight’s final.

I’ve probably already given some of the answers in my preface, but if you have a few minutes to spare as we wait for things to get into the swing in Turin, why not have a stab at our Eurovision quiz from tomorrow? ?

If you don’t know, sounds like unbelievable, but mika One of the presenters on tonight’s show. Yes, the real Micah. He has been tweeting from behind the scenes since tonight.

Angelica Frey took a look at the entries earlier in the week for us to take a look at, and what might be the favourites. But there were some setbacks in the semifinals, and some have already been sidelined. You can catch up with her stay here: Sexy vegetables, wolves eating bananas and Meghan Markle’s hair – who to watch at Eurovision 2022?

Here’s your running order for tonight, which the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) simply put up on a social media graphic so I don’t have to type it all out.

I remember last year I promised to join the comments, and then it all happens so fast that it’s impossible for me. So if you want to contact me – especially with pictures from your Eurovision party this evening – tweet me @martinbellum is your best bet. I would have a TweetDeck column open and therefore (probably) see it. I already have some Eurovision bingo suggestions set up, but I welcome any additional thoughts.

Welcome to our live coverage of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest

оброго вечора лондона! It’s “Good evening from London!” Ukrainian for, and I’m glad you can join me for our live coverage of the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Let me start by being completely honest with you. There’s a good chance we’re about to sit for four hours of the greatest and most spectacular musical extravaganza on the planet, only to find out just how much Kalash Orchestra from Ukraine gonna win it with your song stefania,

Has this song been popular among Eurovision fans in the build-up? Yes. Will Ukraine’s victory be seen as a sign of solidarity for its country across Europe? Yes. Is this really the best song we’ll see tonight? Well …

Kalash Orchestra with Stefania

Everything starts at 9pm in Turin, which is 8pm in the UK, and is about 90 minutes away. If you’re joining us from Australia I look forward to hearing in the comments whether you’ve decided to set your alarm to wake up in the morning and see it, or have you been on a Eurovision rampage all night.

Even if the result looks like it might be obvious, there’s plenty to be entertained about. We have 25 songs ahead of us. UKis informed not to make too much for change, and Norway And moldova Eurovision has sent out entries that you’ll see on clip-shows for years to come. If you like moody downtempo songs of sorrow sung by women, then you have a bountiful harvest. Some of the staging is, as always, spectacular, and there’s a song that begins by asking “What could be the secret to Meghan Markle’s healthy hair?”

So come and join me. We will definitely be playing Eurovision bingo – drinking is optional – and the comments on this live blog are always lively and fun. I am really looking forward to it.
