Interesting fact: there is a lot of money to be made by betting on Eurovision outcomes.

There's a guy who blogs about the songs and their odds and makes his living every year through betting.

The UK one is pretty awful but that said it's different enough from the usual stuff to stand out a bit more.

The problem the UK has is that our style of pop etc is different from most of Europe who seem to have a similar feel.

I think Iceland's in with a big chance. Cute girl, cute voice, likeable song, everything following a vaguely similar formula to Loreen and Emilie de Forest. Finland will get the 'novelty' vote, albeit no bad thing.

Hope she does, I'd be pretty pissed otherwise, if I was her.

Caravan Palace are the band you've been waiting for all your life. Also check out Parov Stelar.


Cheers for this one Fjar, had these guys on pretty regularly since you posted about them
