Francesca Michielin – No Degree of Separation.

This song is weak compared to the amazing song Italy sent last year. I am still devastated that “Grande Amore” did not win. At least I am no longer upset about the 2012 entry doing so poorly, but Il Volo deserved better than third! Third!

What Italy needs to work on is the presentation. They have sent great songs before and lost. You would think they would have learned that it is not the song that matters. Eurovision is not a Song contest. I am not sure exactly what it is but song contest does not describe it which gives homes to more average songs like this year’s entry from Italy.

Francesca is an X-factor winner, which is sadly fairly standard now for Eurovision. The perfect for an X-factor contestant is one that is very middle of the road and this song is so middle of the road that it will probably be hit by a Semi, which, when it happens, will probably be for the best.

Last year Italy came third, something which they are good at. Italy was also third in 1975
