Anita Reviews Dennis’ 21st Century Favourite
Ich Troje – Keine Grenzen – Żadnych granic | 7th place, 90 points (Final)
I will admit that I haven’t ever heard this song before (that I know of), so this truly will be a first impression. A ballad, my favourite! If you’ve been following this series for a while, you’ll know that it takes a special ballad to really capture my heart, and not long into listening to this song, I know for certain that this is not the one. The song itself is bland, and the only spice is the male vocals, which… I can’t stand. I also didn’t understand the final moments, where the male vocalists kneels down to put his head against the female singer’s legs – what the? Overall, absolutely not my cup of tea. I’d question Dennis’ taste levels but this came 7th, so it’s not just him who saw something that I clearly can’t see!
Joshua Reviews Brandon’s 21st Century Favourite
Isis Gee – For Life | 24th place, 14 points (Final)
Brandon’s trend of liking Eurovision ballads sung by women with strong vocals continues! Unfortunately this particular entry isn’t for me. I completely understand the appeal, though, with effortless vocals and a fairytale-esque staging. It just doesn’t have a particular hook to it that interests me. Overall I thought that the performance was solid. The staging is slightly cliche, but it suits the song, so it’s hard to blame the Polish delegation in this instant.
