It’s now just over a fortnight before all eyes turn to Oslo for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. With plenty of wild costumes, crazy musical entries, glitz, glamour and flirtatious hosts, the spectacular will once again be split into two semi finals (on May 25 and May 27) and the grand final (on May 29). Who’ll make it through? We continue our look at some of the entries who’ll be vying for Europe’s most sought after music prize.
The United Kingdom has automatic qualification in the grand final on May 29.
UNITED KINGDOM : Josh Dubovie – That Sounds Good To Me
We’re so torn about the UK’s entry this year from newcomer Josh Dubovie. He’s undoubtedly got a great voice. And the song is a hands-in-the-air Stock and Waterman-produced number that reminds us of the heady pop infused days of Scooch and Steps. But that’s the issue – it sounds so ‘then’. A recent re-working of the track in the lead-up to Eurovision has seen its sound beefed up slightly, but it still sounds like it was ripped straight from the pop charts of yesteryear. It won’t stop us dancing to it, but we’re not sure what the rest of Europe’s going to think of this.
