VIDEO / YOU CAN REALLY FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM
OLIVIER: JUST LIKE A FRIEND FROM THE ALPS
At first I thought this song was just worth being sung in the stable of some Swiss farm, but Sebalter from Ticino has that little something that make people feel he’s a normal guy and we could all sing along with him. I would call “Hunter Of Stars” a simple but very friendly song, far from all the other blockbusters other countries have sent to Copenhagen. No special effect, no sophisticated choreography or gimmick, just a nice song. Just a cheerful performance. Switzerland has followed the Latvian recipe and I’m glad they did. That gives us a bit a fresh air in such a disputed contest.
FOTIS: HUNK SINGER CRAPPY SONG
The only reason you can love this song is because of Sebalter. He is not just another hunky from Switzerland but he is also making his song worth of listen. Golden red abstract graphics on the stage and static performer for the band while the camera work is absolutely perfect. Swiss song is a definitely outsider since it’s a kind of a tune that can pop up in the scoreboard out of nowhere, so I suggest you pay attention for this sexy-folk entry!
