Eurovision 2016: The Nordic Entries!


Now that Sweden has chosen its Melodifestivalen winner, and the song that will represent them at this year’s Eurovision Song Content, we now have all five Nordic entries that will be competing in May.

Here’s what the Nordics have sent to Europe;

Greta Salome – Hear Me Calling
An earthy folkpop number turns into a dramatic Eurovision-ready belter, trading in on the undeniable air of atmospheric mystery that Iceland exudes to the rest of the world.

Agnete – Icebreaker
Like Iceland, Norway have chosen a song that is going to bring some sonic theatrics to the Eurovision stage – and are sending a blonde Scandi siren to deliver it. ‘Icebreaker’ sounds like two Eurovision future-classics spliced together into one.

Frans – If I Were Sorry
While Norway and Iceland have gone with entries that are tailored to Eurovision, the Swedes have chosen a song that sounds like it could be played on the radio – in any part of the world and at any time of the year. They’re favourites to win Eurovision with this. For a second year running. And they’d totally deserve to.

Sandhja – Sing It Away
A retro flavoured merging of soulpop into discopop. We were quite dismissive of this when it was first selected, as it’s admittedly quite generic. But if this found itself plonked in between some less tempo-tastic songs, it could be appreciated on the night. That’s an if though.

Lighthouse X – Soldiers of Love
Genuinely awful. Denmark deserve to spend a second year in a row sitting out the contest in the semi finals for sending this utter tripe.
