Kings of Vienna
Given its Kings of Leon influences, it's the type of song the UK, Australia and other Western nations will enjoy.
This year’s hosts have tonight chosen their song for Eurovision.
MakeMakes will perform I Am Yours in the Eurovision final on May 23rd.
Austria opted for the traditional host-nation ballad (there are one or two exceptions to the rule) and look set to relinquish the title of champions in May.
The MakeMakes were the clear winners on the night with their Kings of Leon inspired rock-ballad. As hosts, it should receive plenty of attention, which may see it finish around the 12th-16th mark. However, had this song been required to go through the semi-finals, I could see it floating between 8th-12th – it’s just not memorable enough to stand out. Having said that, given its Kings of Leon influences, it’s the type of song the UK, Australia and other Western nations will enjoy.
Will the hosts earn a respectable finish?
