Und, finalement...here are the remaining songs from Eurovision.

  • France, having upped their effort considerably this year, send a jaunty guitar pop song called L'Amour a la Francaise. The song, sung partly in French and English, plays with cliches and ideas about love, the French way. It's cute and we hope it does well.
  • Russia send Serebro, a funky girl band, singing a grindy electro-ish catchy pop song much like something Britney should be singing. It's one of the few proper pop songs in the Contest this year and Russia came second last year - Moscow 2008,

    anyone?

    The German entrant this year is the rather dishy Roger Cicero, singing a swing jazz number praising how women rule the world.
  • Ukraine send Verka Seduchka, a fabulous frumpy lumpy drag queen singing a nonsensical drinking song over a tinny ethno-dance beat.
  • Scooch!
    United Kingdom - Scooch are camp, frothy, and delightfully flying the UK flag. Romania's entrants are Todomondo, 6 blokes singing about love in 6 different languages. It's ridiculously catchy and quite charming, and goes a bit bonkers when the police siren kicks in before the key change. Wahey. Armenia send a mid-tempo love ballad, with the air of a faint late 80s easy-listening sound. Not one to be reckoned with.

    And that's it! Who's your favourite? It all kicks off tomorrow night with the semi-final, broadcast on BBC3 at 8pm and the final, with added Terry Wogan, is on BBC1, Saturday, 8pm.
