Well it’s now May and that can only mean one thing – the Eurovision Song Contest isn’t far away. It’s now just weeks before entrants from across Europe descend on the Azerbaijani capital Baku to take part in the first of the semi finals in this year’s competition. Each semi final consists of 18 performances, with just ten performers from each making it through to the 2012 Grand Final on Saturday May 26, where the ‘big five’ of the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy, along with the host nation Azerbaijan, will be waiting for them. Here at auspOp, we’re continuing our daily look at each of the competitors’ songs in the lead-up to Eurovision 2012.
GAITANA : Be My Guest
A recording music artist in her homeland for the past decade, Gaitana’s bound to get the crowd on their feet what with her model looks, her big diva vocals and a track that just begs you to dance. Though her selection was mired in a little controversy, the track itself wouldn’t sound out of place on today’s radio networks and we’re particularly loving those strong vocals.
Gaitana and the Ukraine take to the stage in the second of the semi finals and we reckon their chances are good for making it on through to the Grand Final on May 26.
