Super Saturday entertains us with entries from Finland, Norway and Spain

There’s always at least one “Super Saturday” in every national final season, and even this more streamlined 2021 variant was no exception. Last night, fans were able to juggle streams for a good six hours as Finland, Norway and Spain selected their entries for Rotterdam and semi-finals took place in Estonia, Sweden and Portugal.

In Finland, a high-quality line-up in Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2021 was no obstacle to rockers Blind Channel, whose “Dark Side” won the international jury vote before absolutely obliterating the competition by receiving more than 50% of the televotes – a more than convincing victory!

In Norway, several rounds of voting whittled down the 12 contenders to two superfinalists – returning fan favourites KEiiNO, who famously won the televote when they represented the country in ESC 2019, and popular local artist TIX, whose songwriting credits include international hits like Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho”. In our chat, KEiiNO was our #1 of the night and TIX was our #12 – but the Norwegian public saw things differently and duly selected TIX’s “Fallen Angel” to represent them in Rotterdam!

Finally, we already knew that Spain would be represented by Blas Cantó as would have been the case in ESC 2020, but the question was which of his two songs would get the ticket. The answer is “Voy a quedarme”, and you can listen to it here:

The non-winning finalists from these shows get to participate in SongHunt 2021, our annual quest to find the best song of the season which begins tonight. You can read all about it right here – make sure you get involved!

To use the legendary words of Ketil Stokkan:

OK. UK is OK.

Felix has a simple verdict for Barbara Pravi's first rehearsals: "Incredibly strong." 🇫🇷

A spotlight, fog, inventive camerawork, and sparing LED usage. It's all in our liveblog of the automatic finalists' first run-throughs on the Rotterdam stage:

The first rehearsal of host country, (the) Netherlands:

Pretty much perfect vocally from Jeangu and co., but are the staging choices a bit too cold in places?

Jendrik is in a pink jacket, because that's the colour this year needed more of!

Despite that: a very solid first set of run-throughs for Germany 🇩🇪 - and maybe the kind of thing that could put a smile on people's faces?

.@thisismaneskin are making full use of the width of the stage (are they the first ones to do so? We think they might be).

Elsewhere in their performance: shirtlessness and "shiny, violet trousers".
