LATVIA – Sexy, cool, slow, eloquent might be what best sums up Laura Rizotto’s stage performance in a strong, sensual and sexy cherry red dress and an equally strong jazzy voice, mesmerizing us into her seductive charm. She is strictly the focus of her act. Laura’s passionate charm such is enough to fill the Altice Arena in itself.
ESCKAZ.COM: Less is more and in a way that certainly goes after Hungary now with this rehearsal from Latvia – yet in another way here I think it is way too much as well, as the hair sweeping is done so much it becomes a gimmick instead of what might’ve been a nice touch to the performance.
ESCBUBBLE.COM: Overall a good song. I think this will qualify, coming around 13th/14th in the final. I think this will do well with the juries, although it may struggle with the televote as I don’t think it’s very memorable.
ESCXTRA.COM: Vocals are very good. Laura delivers a vocally brilliant performance.
EUROVOIX.COM: This is incredibly better than her first rehearsal.
