VIDEO / IT SOUNDS LIKE A MUSCLE-RELAXER
OLIVIER: WHAT A CALM STORM!
I like it very much but that’s a risky choice for the Netherlands since many may found this country song a bit boring and so far from Eurovision standards (but that could be an advantage somehow). Nevertheless it is very well performed and the performance looks fine despite being particularly static and colourless. Good for the Netherlands since there are some much weaker entries in this semi-final, they may get the spot to the final. They clearly deserve it for such a risky but professional choice.
FOTIS: REALLY BORED
I agree with Olivier it’s anice song, itself but I think this is not risky for The Netherlands. The song is not appealing and I cannot see it to the final very easily. I have to admit I love The Common Linnets smooth voice and the floor led presentation with a road passing by them while singing. The camera work and the black and white colors of the stage are really helping this entry.
