Now I feel like Rena rama ding dong COULD have done better, although a lot of it would've been riding on how much it could rile up a mass televote given it almost certainly would've been starting on under 10 points from the juries
I'm not actually sure there were all that many missed chances this year, which is unusual. Maybe a few things in Eesti Laul could've scraped a few more points but I'm not sure any were qualifiers, and maybe Blas's other song could've reached the heady heights of 7 points? So I'll just submit my favourite gay-interest song not already covered instead:
(I reckon it could've managed it in the semi, although looking at the points spread you actually might be right that it would've been QUITE the ask - it probably would've needed to tie with Russia on televotes to safely get through)
I don't know if it was because there were so many returning artists this year, but I wasn't feeling it with this NF season the way I usually do. There were still some smashers, but some (Lithuania and Estonia especially) were just total duds.
