Austria: MakeMakes – I Am Yours

      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…

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?

  1. Let’s hope your are right Gav, superfinals can bring shocking results and the underdog always gets people to vote more often. Plz don’t f***k this up Austria

  2. the final is not over yet lol

  3. Well congratz Austria and congratz eurovision. I really love to see this kind of soulful music in Eurovision. This is a real dark horse! More accessible type of Italy 2011 maybe.

    The generous layer offering me a lot of 700 + will probably next time go to the bank and get more ROI out of the interest in two months time and also a lot safer way to multiply his money by 1.0014.

  4. From observing the live performance, I feel this could certainly dent the top end of the scoreboard. The smokey vocal accompanied with a feel good accessible song a la Elton John could work marvelously. Setting the piano on fire is a nice bit of decoration too. Also notice on the video comment section itself the more mellowed laxative opinions people have compared to last years entry, even though they’ve decided again to send a man with long hair and a beard. Crazy.
