The countdown to Eurovision 2012 is well and truly underway, with less a month before this year’s competition touches down in the Azerbaijani capital Baku. Once again two semi-finals will see the bulk of the countries battle it out in the hope of progressing through to the Grand Final on Saturday May 26, where waiting will be the big six of the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and host nation Azerbaijan. We’re continuing our daily look at the entries in the lead-up to Eurovision 2012.
SOLUNA SAMAY : Should’ve Known Better
Formerly a long-time member of an outfit called Gee Gee and Soluna, Danish songstress Soluna Samay only released her first solo album at the end of last year.
Winning selection for her country via the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix earlier this year, she’ll represent Denmark in the first semi final, coming up on Tuesday May 22.
‘Should’ve Known Better’ is quite a strong track too – sung in English, it has a good hook, is relatively international in its sound and Soluna is reminiscent of acoustic pop songstresses of the past (Lene Marlin and Jewel are two names that spring to mind). This should do well.
