Share

Welcome back to our reviews of the Eurovision 2024 songs! Today we will continuw with the following 6 countries: Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia and Finland. Enjoy!

CROATIA: Baby Lasagna – “Rim Tim Tagi Dim”

Raul: Yes, finally something good from Croatia. I thought after Albina (2021) they will go with songs like 2023 (PLEASE NO) or even worse like 2022 (again no). Baby Lasagna has a good song, very catchy, if he will sing good, Croatia has a chance for a top 5, but let’s thing about the staging. If they will have the same staging as in Dora 2024, it will be just perfect. As I said, top 10 for sure, but a big potential for top 5, depends on him.

(Rating: 10/10)

Reza: It’s one of my favourites songs of this year. I love everything about this song and Baby Lasagna. He delivers the song very well and he matches the energy and vibe as well. It would be lovely to see Croatia winning Eurovision this year, but the only concern are the juries who are probably not going to rank him very high. However, this is an excelent song and effort from Croatia.

(Rating: 10/10)

Robert: The song is a winner potential. You can have so much fun on it. I can describe it as being one of my favorites this year. I love it.

(Rating: 9/10)

Ionut: I understand why this song is preferred by many. Baby Lasagna is a very charismatic and energetic guy, but the song is simply not my cup of tea.

(Rating: 4/10)

Average: 8.25/10

CYPRUS: Silia Kapsis – “Liar”

Raul: Cyprus, I love your direction! I love the song, the girl, the package, just perfect! I hope she will go to the final!!!

(Rating: 8/10)

Reza: It’s a cute bop. I really like Silia’s energy and how excited she seems for this experience. My only issue is that we’ve heard this type of song a hundred times before and it’s just extremely basic.

(Rating: 8/10)

Robert: A BOP! Our queen served. I do like electronic music. She is so so talented and I think she will rock the stage in Malmo.

(Rating: 8/10)

Ionut: Cyprus is back to what we are used to and doing it very well, I can’t wait to see what the full package will look like for Silia

(Rating: 9/10)

Average: 8.25/10

CZECHIA: Aiko – “Pedestal”

Raul: No, I don’t like this. It’s too much for me, not my type of song.

(Rating: 5/10)

Reza: The main problem with this entry is the vocals. The song is not bad by any means but I just cannot enjoy it properly when I listen any live version of hers.

(Rating: 5/10)

Robert: I don’t appreciate it. It is a copy of Olivia Rodrigo. She really dissapointed me and I hope this country will finish last in the semifinal. Unmemorable entry.

(Rating: 4/10)

Ionut: It’s a very Avril Lavigne/Taylor Swift song but it doesn’t bother me at all, I really think Aiko will be a surprise this year.

(Rating: 6/10)

Average: 5.00/10

DENMARK: Saba – “Sand”

Raul: Denmark, welcome back to Eurovision ( I KNOW THEY WERE THERE, I didn’t consider them to participate with that songs) I love the song, I love her, I love the performance from nf, JUST PERFECT. Top 20 for sure.

(Rating: 7/10)

Reza: It’s a generic but a good pop song. The best song Denmark sent since 2020 but I don’t know if this will be enough to bring them back in the final. It’s an enjoyable song but it doesn’t make you grab the phone and vote for it.

(Rating: 8/10)

Robert: This country is ready to serve. Denmark finally sends a good song after so many years. Saba has the chance of finishing in the top 10 or 15 with her interesting song.

(Rating: 8/10)

Ionut: Denmark finally sends something digestible and listenable, welcome to the final.

(Rating: 9/10)

Average: 8.00/10

ESTONIA: 5MIINUST x Puuluup – “(nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi”

Raul: This is my fav joke entry. I like their song, they are amazing, can’t wait to see them in Malmo Arena!

(Rating: 8/10)

Reza: I see why people love this, I also see its potential but I just don’t enjoy listen to it. The performance didn’t help the song to grow on me either.

(Rating: 4/10)

Robert: It is so bad but actually so good at the same time:))))) This joke entry has the change of qualifying in the final and have the same faith as Croatia’s last year song.

(Rating: 8/10)

Ionut: Estonia is unfortunately not my cup of tea this year.

(Rating: 2/10)

Average: 5.50/10

FINLAND: Windows95man – “No Rules!”

Raul: No, just no, Its not my type of song, I don’t like it. Neeext.

(Rating: 4/10)

Reza: Even though I was that heartbroken when Paskana didn’t win, I loved this song since the first listen. Everything is just so fun and clever, it has a nice and catchy hook and the vocals are good as well.

(Rating: 8.5/10)

Robert: After finishing second last year, this country is bringing a joke entry. I don’t find it entertaining or good. It is really just messy.

(Rating: 4/10)

Ionut: With windows without windows I don’t like this song at all.

(Rating: 2/10)

Average: 4.63/10
