MAY 09: IT’S HIS LIFE BUT IT’S OUR EARS THOUGH / VIDEO
The last rehearsal for the day concluding the second semifinal’s first technical round of rehearsals and Romania’s Cezar is on stage performing the song “It’s my Life”
WHAT WE LIKED
Electro pop opera with high notes from the Romanian entrant. Lots of red elements on stage and lots of blue, red purple lights for the Romanian entry. Cezar on a podium and lots are happening on stage.
WHAT WE DISLIKED
It’s indeed the trash song of the year and this will not go to the final not because of the vocal performance (which is outstanding anyway) but because there is no point this song to even exist!
