One thought on “Andorra’s Three Finalists

  1. The encroachment of English, in the Eurovision Song Contest increases year by year.

    The time has come to break this habit of “language imperialism”, in the Eurovision Song Contest, and use a song, sung in Esperanto instead!

    This is a serious suggestion, as you can see from the Esperanto music which is already available at or at

    There’s even cheesy Esperanto music available! See
