The countdown is now entering it’s final stages, with less than two weeks to go before the the Norwegian capital Oslo plays host to the first semi final for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. As always, we’ll be expecting the big frocks, the big numbers, the chord changes, the frocks… Once again this year, the competition is divided into two semi finals (May 25 and 27) and the grand final (May 29).
Ukraine will compete in the second semi-final on May 27.
UKRAINE : Alyosha – Sweet People
Controversy has dogged the Ukraine as they prepared 23 year old Alyosha for competition in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. They’d originally chosen a track called ‘To Be Free’ as their official entry. But after it was discovered that the song had already been released (thus contravening Eurovision Song Contest rules), it was back to the drawing board – where ‘Sweet People’ was born. And Alyosha’s got quite the set of lungs with which to carry the song off. With the right amount of on-stage presence in the second semi, this just might have a shot.
