It's Eurovision week, and Helsinki is buzzing. These are the first batch of songs automatically into the final, either because the countries came in last year's top 10 or pay for the whole thing (hi UK, France, Spain and Germany!)
Couldn't Escape If We Wanted To: Preview 5
Spain send D'NASH, a buff boyband that stick to the boyband rule of having two hawt members. We can't help but picture them. They're singing I Love You, Mi Vida, a straight-forward uptempo, latin pop song. Ireland's act Dervish bring a traditional Irish music tune about how all of Europe is now free and friendly, sung with traditionally Irish lamenting vocals. It's very Irish, take that how you will.The host nation Finland are sending their massively popular winner of Finnish Idols who was once a forklift driver. Hanna Pakarinen will sing Leave Me Alone, a rock anthem about broken love which veers just to the right side of depressing.
