Anita Reviews Dennis’ 21st Century Favourite
Nina Sublatti – Warrior | 11th place, 51 points (Final)
It doesn’t surprise me that Dennis would select this track, as it definitely is one of Georgia’s strongest entries, objectively. However subjectively, I don’t know if I really got on the hype train for this song. I love the rock vibes of this song, and I think Georgia does the rock genre well at Eurovision. Vocally, this undeniably strong, although by the end of the song, I want more from Nina, especially in those final choruses.
In terms of the performance, I loved Nina’s outfit and the overall look of the visual performance. The lightning effect looked great, but yet the most memorable part of the performance is the big plume of smoke encasing Nina – bit overzealous on the smoke there, guys! Overall, strong entry, just not my personal favourite from Georgia.
Joshua Reviews Brandon’s 21st Century Favourite
Diana Gurtskaya – Peace Will Come | 11th place, 83 points (Final)
I completely appreciate the meaning and sentiment behind this entry, but the song does not do it for me, unfortunately. For the majority of the performance, Diana executed a composed and strong vocal performance. The raspiness in her voice was a big plus, and added some interest to the entry. I totally understand why Brandon (and many others) would have enjoyed this song, however it’s just not for me.
