VIDEO / MOLLY GOES UNIVERSAL
OLIVIER: AT LAST THE UK IS CLOSING THE NURSING HOME
I just don’t get all the fuss about the UK entry this year. It’s a really over rated entry, and I just don’t like the lyrics. “Power to the people”, really? Is this a trade union song? Anyway, Molly is a great singer and at least she’s a young artist. Remember that she could be Engelbert or Bonnie’s grand-daughter! Finally the UK is sending a modern song, and I should thank them for that. Molly looks superb and the staging is on of the classiest. To make it short, the problem is only the song. But it’s true that I have never been a huge fan of anthemic songs.
FOTIS: A SILENT WINNER
The song is appealing to you without understanding how she did it. I love Molly’s performance, she is simple and effective and United Kingdom can prove that doesn’t need big names in the contest but needs good songs. The arena will be amazing with this camera work on the night of the grand final. I am not sure if the televoters will support this entry but maybe the juries will help the UK be a winner. If UK wins I will not be surprised at all.
