Just over a month to go before some of the kitschest, the campest and the most colourful music in the world takes to the stage in Oslo for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. Once again, the competition is broken down into two semi finals (on May 25 and 27) and the grand final on May 29. And we continue our look at some of the entries that will compete for European music’s ultimate prize.
GEORGIA : Sofia Nizharadze – Shine
If looks count for anything, Georgia already has a leg-up in this year’s Eurovision song contest – because 24 year old songstress Sofia Nizharadze is a stunner. She’s spent most of her life performing in the theatre, playing the role of Juliet in Romeo & Juliet, and being part of a stage production of Hello, Dolly.
The track is a stirring ballad with powerhouse diva-esque vocals, and it’s all coupled with one of our favourite features of European music – the key change.
