Copenhagen 2014

Eurostars Review 2014 – Kirsten Siggaard

With only a few days to go before the team start arriving in Copenhagen, we decided to ask seven former Eurovision entrants their opinions on the songs from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Second of them: She entered the Eurovision Song Contest a grand total of three times for Denmark during the 1980s. She did that as part of the duo Hot Eyes, also known as Kirsten & Søren. They finished 4th in 1984, 11th in 1985 and finally, 3rd in 1988. It’s Kirsten Siggaard!
DenmarkDenmark: Basim – Cliche Love Song
Basim is our own little darling, who started up 6 years ago in X-factor. Now he is a grow-up super nice guy, and he is singing a catchy happy song. Good performance, easy to sing along. Makes me think a little of Bruno Mars.
SloveniaSlovenia: Tinkara Kovač – Round and Round
Fine song. Nice singer. Uses the flute from last years winner-intro.
AustriaAustria: Conchita Wurst – Rise Like A Phoenix
The next BOND theme-song? Old fashioned, but a good song and voice. Very confusing, all the time thinking: Is it a man or a woman..
ArmeniaArmenia: Aram MP3 – Not Alone
Starts up very quiet, builds up very nice with a mix of Classic and modern electronic sound . We hear the drums from last year…..An atypical song for Eurovision.
AlbaniaAlbania: Hersi – One Night’s Anger
Pop-Rock song. Wins with more listening, but I’m not fond of her sound when she’s agressive. Awful video…..
UkraineUkraine: Maria Yaremchuk – Tick Tock
Easylistening, catchy popsong. Dancefriendly. The way the guitar-rifs are played is very popular these days. She must be a great fan of Michael Jackson.
We would just like thank Kirsten for sharing her opinions and furthermore, to state that these opinions are that of Kirsten herself, and not of everyone at escXtra. Feel free to give your own opinion in the comments below! Stay tuned for day three tomorrow!
