Roy The Boy takes a quick look at the Eurovision Song Contest final and likes Sweden, with a recommended saver on the Australia song.
Sweden & Australia by Process of Elimination
Russia’s young act was shamelessly booed when on stage at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest. It was a consequence of a Ukraine crisis that was consuming TV news outlets.
12 months on the Russian act is trading as short as 11/4 second favourites for the 60th rendition of the popular show. Can public opinion have changed so much so quickly? I think not.
Similarly, for reasons previously outlined, I cannot consider the Italian entry. Operatic music has a terrible record in Eurovision.
It leaves just two sensible options: Sweden and ‘special guests’ Australia.
