It’s April and we have less than 60 days till the annual Eurovision contest that will happen next month. Get excited! If you don’t know what Eurovision is, I wrote a detailed post about the contest a couple of years ago. I am back with my series “Road to Eurovision”, predicting who will win this year’s contest. Each day, I will feature a song from one of the countries. Then, I will make my own predictions of who will make it to the finals and win the competition. Good luck to those who are competing!
You can check out my commentaries on past years:
Let’s get started!
Rosa Linn’s “Snap”
Rosa Linn‘s “Snap” is representing Armenia in this year’s Eurovision. This song is pretty beautiful with folk instrumentation, pop vibes, and upbeat pop-folk vocals with a bit of soul mixed in. Just all those three elements mixed together creates a majestic soundscape of earthy yet soothing sounds. However, I don’t think it has that magical element that makes it a Eurovision final song. It is a wonderful song, but to judges, it might be a song with flat-line elements as it doesn’t progress into something magically strong. It just stays the same throughout. And because of this, I don’t think it will make it to the finals.
My Eurovision 2021 Predictions
Here are my predictions for this year’s contest. These are my own opinions and I am not getting paid or endorsed for them.
(Note: I changed my prediction for Intelligent Music Project after a week of thinking about the song. I think they will be going to the finals as the song grew on me.)
