    I like Axel his voice but i dont think the song is enough. I liked Udo also but its missing in the act. Sil is more tradional but its a great song. report to the moderator

    For me there is only one song that stands out and that's by SIL and "What's the time in Tokyo?" On the first listen to all songs I had trouble picking even one song. But after listening to all songs 4 times SIL really stood out for me. But not having immediate impact is a worry. Could this be another that gets away in favour of Axel Hirsoux's "Mother". Axel has a really good voice but the song is poor. Voices don't win contests, it's songs. "What's the time Tokyo" is a really lovely song. report to the moderator

    Je pense qu'Axel a la voix et la chanson pour gagner l'Eurovision 2014. Laissons-lui sa chance :) report to the moderator

    Hope Eva Jacobs wins. IMHO she's the only one who could get something in Copenhagen. report to the moderator

    I want to see Sil in the contest report to the moderator

    Wow: I can see Axel going to Copenhagen and....WIN!!!! It would be interesting to see what Norway picks, and if they pick Carl Espen there will be a very interesting fight of two wonderful ballads for th ESC victory...

    So far, I can easily see either Belgium or Norway to win. report to the moderator

    How old is Axel? I heart he was just 32 years, but he looks 12 years older really, hope they can style him better, because this way, he does not have a good tv appearance on stage, it makes the act to old fashion right now! report to the moderator
