Eurovision 2012: Denmark decided - Soluna Samay to Baku

This year's Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has just taken place and Denmark have chosen Soluna Samay to represent them in Baku.

Jesper Nohrstedt came 2nd and Christian Brøns and Patrik Isaksson came 3rd. My favourite of the night Ditte Marie failed to make the final 3.

Here are the performances from the night..

Song 1: Jesper Nohrstedt - Take Our Hearts (came 2nd)

Annoyingly all the videos of Jesper's performance have been removed from Youtube so we'll have to make do with the official video instead.

Song 2: Aya - Best Thing I got

This song was disqualified so was not performed on the night.

Song 3: Kenneth Potempa - Reach the sky

Song 4: Ditte Marie - Overflow

Song 5: Phillip Halloun & Emilia - Baby Love Me

Song 6: Suriya - Forever I Be Young

Song 7: Karen Viuff - Universe

Song 8: Soluna Samay - Should've Known Better - WINNER!

Song 9: Christian Brøns and Patrik Isaksson - Venter (came 3rd)

Again all the videos of this performance have been removed from Youtube and there isn't even an official video, so this video of their afterparty performance will have to do.

Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 24th - 1,2,7,4 down the Rockefeller Street

Now a LOT of people seemed to think this was a dead cert to win Eurovision this year. Estonia only qualified thanks to the votes of the juries (they came 13th in the second semi final televote). In a strange quirk of the mixed jury and televote system despite coming 23rd in the televote and 18th in the jury vote, once the points were added up they finished second to last in the combined vote - 24th place.

Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 23rd - It's for you Niamh Kavanagh

Now anyone who's met Niamh will tell you she's an absolutely lovely person. As one of Ireland's 7 winners she should be Eurovision royalty but her legacy was tainted when she received Ireland's second-worst ever result in Oslo with 'It's For You'. I rather liked the song myself but I admit the performance wasn't perfect.

Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 22nd - What about Kati Wolf's dreams?!

Favourite of British politician Ed Balls and all my gay friends Kati Wolf had a lot of fans at Eurovision 2011. They obviously forgot to vote though as Hungary finished one place below Paradise Oskar 22nd place after a shaky vocal performance.

Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 21st - Da Da Dam - it's Paradise Oskar!

Aww it's the lovely Paradise Oskar (real name Axel Ehnström). Perhaps trying to emulate Tom Dice's success in 2010 it was just him and his guitar against a backdrop of the Earth. The song was very popular in the arena. If you listen carefully you can hear everyone singing along to the 'da da dam' bit. It proved popular in the semi final too, where it finished 3rd with 103 points. Possibly due to his early slot (he performed first) it proved much less successful in the final, finishing in 21st place with just 57 points.
