As for me, too early to rank (as just recently i got to know all the songs), and i guess we will all know even better after the ESC, just like in the past.
though no rank yet, what i can give some sort of ranking, is to give divisions from bad to good to the songs, so atm it is going like this:

* - Terrible songs (7)
Malta
Slovenia
Georgia
Belarus
Serbia
Croatia
Russia

** - Bad songs (6)
Montenegro
Cyprus
Ukraine
Denmark
Macedonia
Finland

*** - Okay\Average songs (11)
Sweden
Netherlands
Iceland
Azerbaijan
Switzerland
France
Armenia
Greece
United Kingdom
Spain
Estonia

**** - Good songs (9)
Austria
Ireland
Belgium
Bulgaria
Romania
Latvia
Israel
Hungary
Moldova

***** - Great songs (6)
Albania
San Marino
Lithuania
Norway
Germany
Italy

Total 39 songs.
Let's see soon when i'll have my top 39 completed :)

Finally, my ranking is ready:

39. Belarus
38. Serbia
37. Georgia
36. Cyprus
35. Russia
34. Ukraine
33. Croatia
32. Macedonia
31. Denmark
30. Malta
29. Montenegro
28. Greece
27. Slovenia
26. Finland
25. Iceland
24. Estonia
23. Armenia
22. Switzerland
21. Netherlands
20. Sweden
19. France
18. Azerbaijan
17. Spain
16. Austria
15. Belgium
14. United Kingdom
13. Ireland
12. Moldova
11. Hungary
10. Romania
  9. Norway
  8. San Marino
  7. Germany
  6. Bulgaria
  5. Latvia
  4. Israel
  3. Italy
  2. Lithuania
  1. Albania

So far, only Israel, Italy and San Marino are the only ones in every top 10...
and now, after i know all the songs, i really don't see any other winner but GERMANY. i think that Israel and Moldova can do well, and just to be honest, to this moment, i never checked the betting odds, nor i watched any of the rehearsals. i even believe that unlike Sweden last year which had little competition from Russia, this time i really see no competitors for Germany...even something like +200 points margin won't surprise me.

Before checking this, I thought in my mind, who do I think these guys would love? I totally thought Netherlands for Can and Cyprus for Niko, I'm glad to see I wasnt far out. Now guys, I didnt post in here all season and unless you guys cheated and looked at my blog (Eurovision Times where you guys are of course all invited, then you can try to guess my favorites this year. I have a VERY clear top 5 because imo, there were FIVE great songs this year and the rest was more or less poo.

I haven't posted here all season either Morgan....and in fact I don't think I've posted a full ranking anywhere online so I wonder if you could guess what my #1 is going to be when I post my ranking here.

It isn't Ukraine...they are high but not #1.

Hmmmm - I remember a conversation we had when there were only a couple of songs to be revealed and I'm going to say not a lot has changed since then and put Hungary as your #1

just like you, Hungary is close but not my #1

i dont think you're the italy or malta type, i think i can easily rule out greece, azerbaijan, norway or russia... so denmark?

Definitely not Denmark - mid table

2 of those you mentioned are actually in my top 10....the others are nowhere near it.

I won't reveal any more though because I'm going to be presenting my full ranking over the next few days.  I actually think I will surprise you this year with my #1 :scratch: :P

So it's time to reveal my bottom 9 entries of 2013.

39 - MONTENEGRO - IGRANKA - WHO SEE

Is this even a song?  They looked utterly ridiculous, the song was a mess and she shouted all her bits.  I fail to find a redeeming feature about this one.

38 - LATVIA - HERE WE GO - PeR

:doh: what an absolute nightmare!!! Tuneless, shouty, badly performed.  Obviously Latvia really don't care about ESC anymore

37 - SPAIN - CONTIGO HASTA EL FINAL - ESDM

The song is lame with no obvious catch to even get me in the remotest bit interested in the song.  Added to that the performance was woeful vocally and visually and you've got a bottom 5 song.

36 - SERBIA - LJUBAV JE SVUDA - MOJE 3

Cheap, tacky, nasty song.  Looked like they were dressed by a hyperactive 6 year-old girl with ADHD and sounded worse than a cat being strangled.  An unmitigated disaster.

35 - SLOVENIA - STRAIGHT INTO LOVE - HANNAH

Whilst the song is almost bearable - well more bearable than the 4 below it at least - the performance was utterly inept vocally.  She didn't sing at all but shouted her way through the entire song.  Last place in the semi was no surprise at all to me

34 - BULGARIA - SAMO SHAMPIONI - ELITSA & STOYAN

Their act was fresh and unique in ESC in 2007 and they thoroughly deserved qualification and the high finish they got.  6 years later and a song that was infinitely worse than Voda and it all just sounded familiar and noisy.  Her vocals are still very poor too.

33 - BELARUS - SOLAYOH - ALYONA LANSKAYA

Dress her as a tart to cover up the weak song and the even weaker vocals - it worked for Turkey in 2009 so why not for Belarus in 2013?  No real surprise it qualified....but come on it's utter rubbish.

32 - FINLAND - MARRY ME - KRISTA SIEGFRIDS

Oh dear what a mess....and the song wasn't much better either.  Yes it's incredibly catchy....but so is pneumonia!!!!  The performance was OTT, the dress was OTT, the song was OTT and the kiss at the end totally unnecessary and for nothing else but shock value.

31 - ARMENIA - LONELY PLANET - DORIANS

I really am at a loss to understand how on earth this qualified let alone finished as high as 18th in the Final.  The song is a great big nothing and the performance was equally a great big nothing.

STILL TO COME

If we carry on like this you'll have mentioned every country...there's only 15 countries left - and you know I've never been particularly patriotic about the UK entries so that takes it down to 14.  Albania, Croatia, Macedonia & Ireland really aren't my thing at all........................usually - so that's down to 10....unless I've double crossed you and said no to it already :D

I've always thought San Marino would be Ian's favorite (but if he first listened to the live version then probably not) and come to think of it Moldova is a possible candidate as well. I was afraid Morgan's favorite would be Hungary and I'm relieved that it isn't because after the show that one hit the rock bottom in my ranking. Now I can't really think what would be Morgan's number one but I'd reckon that it would be among France, Norway, Italy and the Netherlands.

By the way here is my full ranking after the shows:

1.   Netherlands
2.   Italy
3.   Israel
4.   Denmark
5.   San Marino
6.   Croatia
7.   Azerbaijan
8.   France
9.   Greece
10.   Moldova
11.   United Kingdom
12.   Estonia
13.   Ukraine
14.   Russia
15.   Iceland
16.   Georgia
17.   Cyprus
18.   Malta
19.   Spain
20.   Macedonia
21.   Germany
22.   Sweden
23.   Albania
24.   Norway
25.   Austria
26.   Lithuania
27.   Belarus
28.   Finland
29.   Bulgaria
30.   Serbia
31.   Slovenia
32.   Switzerland
33.   Armenia
34.   Ireland
35.   Belgium
36.   Latvia
37.   Romania
38.   Montenegro
39.   Hungary
