Eurovision 2014 in Review: Spain (Ruth Lorenzo – Dancing in The Rain)

I've been waiting for Ruth Lorenzo to show up at Eurovision ever since she became my all-time favourite X Factor contestant back in 2008. She's finally granted my wish, but will her performance of Dancing In The Rain prove worth the wait?

Eurovision 2014 in Review: Italy (Emma Marrone – La mia città)

Since coming back in 2011, Italy have done well out of avoiding Eurovision cliche and sending entries with a distinct but modern national flavour. A big star at home, can Emma Marrone extend their run of luck?

Operatic ivory-tinklers Paula Seling and Ovi took Romania all the way to third in 2010 with 'Playing With Fire'. Now they're back and aiming to go two better - but can 'Miracle' live up to their former glories?

Eurovision 2014 in Review: Slovenia (Tinkara Kovač – Round & Round)

Slovenia are the little country that frequent can't at Eurovision, but they soldier on regardless. After two consecutive last-place semi final finishes in 2012 and 2013, can Tinkara Kovač's considerable pedigree help restore honour to these perennial underdogs?

Eurovision 2014 in Review: Greece (Freaky Fortune feat. Riskykidd – Rise Up)

Greece seem to have hit on a great formula for Eurovision success, but some speculate that given the current financial situation, winning would be a nightmare for them. Could Freaky Fortune's youthful offering throw an unexpected spanner in the works?
