Sweden worthy Eurovision favourites

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.
