Copenhagen 2014

Eurostars Review 2014 – Stella Maessen

With the team arriving in Copenhagen, we decided to ask seven former Eurovision entrants their opinions on the songs from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Third up: She entered the Eurovision Song Contest three times. Back in 1970, she was part of Hearts of Soul, coming seventh for the Netherlands. Seven years later, she represented Belgium with Dream Express, once again coming seventh. Her biggest success came five years after that. She once again represented Belgium, this time as a solo singer, scoring points from every single country, ending up in fourth place. It’s Stella Maessen!
NetherlandsThe Netherlands: The Common Linnets – Calm After The Storm
I’m not too sure about this. I don’t know how country music will go down in the Eurovision Song Contest.
BelgiumBelgium: Axel Hirsoux – Mother
He really has a good voice. I’m not too sure about him winning it though.
FYR MacedoniaFYR Macedonia: Tijana – To The Sky
That’s a strong chorus. I think it’s a really modern and contemporary song!
RussiaRussia: Tolmachevy Sisters – Shine
I really like the music of this song.
MoldovaMoldova: Cristina Scarlat – Wild Soul
That’s a good song. But I really need to hear it live, a song will sound really different once it’s sung live.
ItalyItaly: Emma – La Mia Città
Because she’s singing this in Italian, I’m really not sure on how this is going to do in the Eurovision Song Contest.
We would just like thank Stella for sharing her opinions and furthermore, to state that these opinions are that of Stella herself, and not of everyone at escXtra. Feel free to give your own opinion in the comments below! Stay tuned for day four tomorrow!
