VIDEO / FOR SURE THAT’S A CHEESY PERFORMANCE
OLIVIER: BRING THE ORIGINAL!
Once again Belarus wants to win, and once again they won’t. The song is neither good nor bad, it’s average and far too Robin Thicke inspired for me since I like creativity. But I must confess Teo is a good singer AND performer and is kind of saving the act with is presence on stage. The presentation looks good and it secures a place of Belarus in the final, but I don’t see this topping the chart on Saturday night.
FOTIS: LOVE TO EAT CHEESECAKE THOUGH
Cheesecake is my favourite desert but somehow I am not feeling comfortable enough with this song praising it. I have to admit though that Teo is giving one of the most powerful vocal performances while dancing and using the C-Stage (aka catwalk). The dance act is quite interesting but it fails to impress because of the classic reason: THE HUGE STAGE. There is though such an uncertainty about the semifinal qualifiers giving me the impression that this one could actually proceed to the final. Statistically (if not mistaken) Belarus proceed to the final every three years though!
