VIDEO / CRAZY SUZY SAMBA SUZY
Why is Portugal returning with such a cheap effort? Why is it always the bad song that wins at Festival da Canção? Why am I certain I’ve heard this from Portugal several times before? As Portugal seems to love sequels, here is gorgeous Sucy with “Dança Conmigo 2”or “Lambada 3” better known as “Quero Ser Tua”. The first note are promising, but when the accordion starts playing it’s just “oh no, they did it again!”. That could be a successful summer hit, but in the late 1990’s I’m afraid. In order to save the Portuguese act, the LED screens are very well used and the fairly colourful patterns make a really nice impression. But I doubt this can make it to the final…
FOTIS: WILL PORTUGAL EVER LEARN?
OK we have a great song for the Portuguese radio and summer parties, I agree 1000%, but this is the Eurovision Song Contest. There are many ways to sing in your language, keep your national characteristics and at the same time be international. One thing is for sure: YOU DON’T SING SAMBA with THAT DRESS dear Suzy! Anyway the vocal performance is good, the LED graphics are abstract shapes in the national colors of Portugal (once again) and the song ONCE AGAIN will be stay in the semifinals!
