Eurovision Haikus: First Impressions

 

So now that Melodifestivalen is over (I accidentally spoiled the results for myself =\ oops)  I’ve started looking at other countries’ acts! I guess it’s still early, but I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by the entries so far.

Instead of writing a review of every countries’ song (because really, would anyone actually read it?), I’ve decided to write my thoughts on the entries so far in haiku form. If you didn’t know, haiku is a Japanese poetry style that follows a 5-7-5 syllabic pattern.

Videos are linked for your viewing pleasure. Here we go:

 

Hungary

Nice Song and Vocals

Too deep for Eurovision

Yo. Trigger Warning

 

Ireland

Some cool Celtic sounds

not enough to wake me up

from the song itself

 

Israel

Impressive vocals

Half English and Half Hebrew

Gurl, you’re fierce as hell

 

Lithuania

What is going on?

There might be a message here

I am so confused

 

Macedonia

Hot Mess. Hot Mess. Hot.

Mess Hot Mess Hot Mess Hot Mess

Hot Mess. Hot Mess. Damn.

 

Romania

Cool magic vid screen

EDM beats and screaming

Assault on eardrums

 

Switzerland

What a handsome group

I understand the whistling

But that’s about it

 

United Kingdom

Seems a bit boring

But anthemic and well-sung

Don’t know how I feel

 

 What are your thoughts on the entries so far, Eurovision fans? Leave your own haiku in the comments!
