Next up in our reviews is Moldova. Now, Moldova isn’t exactly the most successful country when it comes to Eurovision, but occasionally, the nation actually chooses something really impressive. I’m not sure if this year is one of those years…
Eduard Romanyuta obviously wanted the love of someone, as he’s known to Eurovision followers as a previous entrant for the Ukrainian national finals. Now, he’s finally earned a spot as part of the Eurovision line-up, with the pop song ‘I want your love.’ If you love pop songs, this is the song for you. When I first heard the song at the national final, I couldn’t even make past a minute. I thought it was so, so awful. However – since hearing the studio version, things have slightly changed for me. I honestly believe it’s one of the catchiest songs of the year, and once you know the lyrics of the chorus, that’s it, you’re hooked. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s incredibly cheesy, but nevertheless, it gets points from me for being stuck in my head!
I think the live performance from the national final is absolutely terrible, but I’m quite sure that their team will be rehearsing a more appropriate performance for the semi-final. I’m sure we will see a bunch of dancers on stage with some sort of synchronised dance routine, but my biggest question is whether Eduard will choose long or short hair for the Eurovision stage – or maybe he will follow in the footsteps of Cristina Scarlet from 2014, with the weird hair extension reveal?!?!?!
Considering all this, I’m going to give the song a 5.5/10 – I like the studio version, but I still think it’s cheesy and slightly undeserving to be in the final, considering the other songs in the contest this year.
