"And what time is it now, Ted?"
And the Eurovision?"
"Is in May Dougal."
As you are all aware the Swiss national final takes place tonight. The final features a relatively bland group of songs, none of which will win ESC 2012. However a national final is a national final. Sometime around 9pm GMT or 10pm CET we will know the first song of this years ESC. Which is a little strange given it is the 10th December (see aboe quote). Sadly, due to other engagements I shall not be on twitter this evening or even watching the final with you. I might be on Twitter by 8:00pm GMT so keep a look out for @SpTynan. Otherwise I recommend either @Ewan or @ESCInsight (I'm not sure which they are blogging through). So based on the studio versions the following grades have been given to the songs:
Lys Assia B
Raphael Jeger B-
Patric Scott feat. Fabienne Louves C+
Katherine St. Laurent C-
Ze Flying Zézettes Orchestra D+
I Quattro D+
Atomic Angels E+
Chiara Dubey E
Guillermo Sorya F+
Lys Assia is the favorite to win tonight and here at The Best Eurovision Blog we would like to wish her the very best of luck.
