Björk is representing Iceland at Eurovision this year! Okay, it’s Hera Björk with “Je Ne Sais Quoi,” but I can’t resist using a lame obvious unfunny gag to start things off. Let’s just cut to the song:
It’s a Europop dance anthem, so it’s hard for me to gauge it. On the one hand, Iceland did well with “This Is My Life” a couple of years ago (and “Je Ne Sais Quoi” is certainly very reminiscent of that). On the other hand, Finland did horribly with “Lose Control” last year. Let’s blame Finland’s demise last year on the rapping and then say that Iceland could do decently with “Je Ne Sais Quoi.” Not that I expect it to win, or even place second. But they won’t embarrass themselves either.
