Anita Reviews Dennis’ 21st Century Favourite
Rollo & King – Never Ever Let You Go | 2nd place, 177 points (Final)
I have to admit, I actually haven’t heard this song before, so this is a true first impression. Vocally, this is well performed, and their harmonies are nice, but the song is just not my style. Sometimes it’s hard to judge an older song with a current perspective, because obviously this song is dated, but it came 2nd back in 2001, so it obviously did something right. For me, the most off putting part of the song is definitely the harmonica, it’s just too much. That alone is making me refrain from pressing the replay button.
Joshua Reviews Brandon’s 21st Century Favourite
Chanée & N’evergreen – In a Moment Like This | 4th place, 149 points (Final)
Personally, I am on the fence when it comes to this entry. I can totally understand, however, why it finished in the top five. It is charming, instantly memorable, and an overall well thought out song. I find it to be a little too sweet, but obviously that is only due to personal taste.
