MOLDOVA – Now that’s one truly impossible stage presentation ever made. Truly mathematical! Three doors, three singers with their mirrors dancers and zillion things are happening on stage. But guess what: DoReDos not only don’t have any stress but they can sing perfectly. The New Wave 2017 winners is one of thee surprises in Lisbon. A song that no one really paid attention is now becoming the party song of the event. The rehearsal, once again their upbeat song delivered and did not disappoint with their dainty singing and dancing. In the end, the blue yellow and red of their suits alluded to the national flag.

ESCKAZ.COM: After the Russian performance this one will definitely put a smile on everyone’s face. It sounds and looks great in the hall and doesn’t get boring for a moment. DoReDos obviously know their act through and through, and maybe it’s because of that it looks a little too rehearsed, female lead Marina seems a bit tired.
ESCBUBBLE.COM: The beat it catchy, and all three (plus their doubles) are having a great time on stage. There’s still the slightly ‘risqué’ section of leg rubbing behind the screen, which isn’t exactly family viewing – but we’ll let them off. I love it!
ESCXTRA.COM: Vocals are not perfect but very good for a performance with so much dancing and with this speed.
EUROVOIX.COM: Another really solid run through. Moldova should be very happy with this.
