Зрелището Евровизия 2014

Още от автора

Тази година България пропусна да участва в песенния конкурс „Евровизия“, тъй като бюджетът на БНТ за 2014 г. беше намален. Други страни също се отказаха от участието си поради финансови причини през тази и изминалите години (Сърбия, Босна и Херцеговина, Словакия, Хърватия, Андора и Кипър) или поради несъгласие с регламента на конкурса (Чехия и Турция), така че това не е болка за умиране. И без нас „зрелището“ пак отмина и замина.

Почти всичките песни тази година бяха от обичайния за Евровизия тип – комерсиални и свежи. Но конкурсът беше спечелен от брадатата дама Кончита Вурст от Австрия, която изпълни баладата “Rise Like A Phoenix”. Може би това е най-скандалният победител в историята на конкурса до момента. Интересното покрай него е, че зад образа на Кончита Вурст стои 25-годишен мъж. След като беше наградена по случай победата си, брадатата австрийка каза: „Тази нощ е посветена на всички, които вярват в едно мирно и свободно бъдеще". 

В „Топ 3“ на конкурса се класираха още Нидерландия и Швеция, съответно на второ и трето място.

Конкурсът „Евровизия“ често е спряган като политически, тъй като е интересно колко точки ще даде на другите всяка една от участващите държави. Но освен обичайните за музикалното състезание вълнения, тази година се случиха и други неща, които възбудиха още емоции покрай музикалното състезание.

Едно от тях е това, че поради анексирането на Крим от Руската федерация се водеше полемика как да бъде отчетен вотът на кримските зрители – като украински или като руски. В крайна сметка Европейският съюз за радио и телевизия и държащият лиценза за тазгодишния конкурс датски телевизионен канал решиха да отчетат вота в района на черноморския полуостров като украински. Като причина за решението си те изтъкнаха това, че зрителите гласуват чрез SMS-и, а мобилните оператори в района на Крим все още са украински.

Когато на полуфинала водещите съобщиха, че Русия се класира за големия финал, част от публиката започна да освирква, като със сигурност недоволството им не беше провокирано от изпълнението на двете 17-годишни близначки, които представиха страната си прекрасно, а най-вероятно от политиката на президента на Русия Владимир Путин и военната му инвазия в Крим.

Същото се случи и на откриването на големия финал, когато на парада на класиралите се за финала страни беше представена Русия. Освиркването се повтаряше и всеки път, когато Русия получаваше висок брой точки на финалното класиране, при което традиционно говорители от всички участващи в конкурса страни съобщават резултатите от  техния телевизионен вот в кратко живо включване. Бурно освиркване имаше и когато руската говорителка съобщаваше резултата от гласуването на Русия.

Руското изпълнение получи високи оценки (8, 10 и 12 точки) от вота на Азербайджан, Грузия, Гърция, Армения, Беларус, Молдова, класирайки се на 7-мо място. От Украйна Русия получи само 4 точки.

Полемика, макар и не политическа, имаше и между Белгия и Франция, тъй като има подозрение, че мелодията на песента, с която френската група се представи в Копенхаген, е присвоена от белгийския рапър Стромай, който пък стана популярен у нас преди години с парчето си „Alors on danse”

Най-големият успех за България на песенния конкурс „Евровизия“ беше през 2007 г  в Хелзинки, когато Елица Тодорова и Стоян Янкулов се класираха на 5-то място с песента "Вода”. Двамата участваха на конкурса и през 2013 г., когато той се проведе в Малмьо, но не успяха да се класират на финала.
