VIDEO / PURE ROCK STAR ON STAGE
OLIVIER: AMO EMMA
I’m trying to be as objective as possible here, even though I’ve been a huge fan of Emma for a couple of years now. That girl is so professional. Ok, “La Mia Città” may not be the best track of her album (I would have paid millions to see her perform “L’Amore Non Mi Basta” on Eurovision stage) but this glam rock act is very effective. She is good at using the stage, and for once, Italy is giving us a true show, a very powerful act. The outfit is really nice, and so are the modern designs on screen. I must sage I particularly like the last note of the song when all lights on stage are turned off. A really strong performance!
FOTIS: COULD IT BE BETTER?
I am not sure what’s wrong with Italy because I really like this song. But there is something wrong that makes me feel that Italy will not do well this time (once again). The song is a pure rock song, a good one I have to say and Emma is amazing on stage. But I am affraid once again she will have the fate of Nina Zilli. I am not talking about bad ranking but I hoped to see soon an Italian victory in the contest. In terms of rehearsal, Emma is amazing, she is using the stage perfectly and the camera work makes her shine and standing out as a performer. Let’s hope for the best for Italy this year (as good loyal Eurovision fans, after all we all want to go to Milan someday soon).
