That is why the escXtra Team has decided to ask five of our friends, who are not into Eurovision at all, to review a part of the songs of this year’s Eurovision. Second in our series is Rodrigo’s friend Nacho. Nacho is 28 years old and lives in Spain. He works as a doctor and mainly listens to pop, some rock and classical music.
Ukraine: Mariya Yaremchuk – Tick Tock
Very Eurovision and will likely be ranked in the top entries. Interesting rhythm and will very likely be played in hip places after the festival. And Mariya, the singer, is a babe.
Belgium: Axel Hirsoux – Mother
Beautiful lyrics but the tenor concept is not one that I would expect to do well in Eurovision. Too slow.
Moldova: Cristina Scarlat – Wild Soul
An experienced singer with remarkable low notes and a very polished vibrato. The song, however, ends up being tedious.
San Marino: Valentina Monetta – Maybe
Valentina gives this song a classic touch that could remind us of the great one of the romantic-melody genre like Barbra or Celine Dion. Very nice voice colour.
Portugal: Suzy – Quero Ser Tua
A rhythm to dance which invites to move the body. However, the singer is weak in a number of areas, mainly her vocal registry.
The Netherlands: The Common Linnets – Calm After The Storm
The Common Linnets evoke with this song rhythms of bands like Fleetwood Mac. Great lyrics, even better melody.
Montenegro: Sergej Ćetković – Moj Svijet
Beautiful balad with nice ethnic touches. Outstanding performer. Shame I don’t understand Montenegrin.
Hungary: András Kállay-Saunders – Running
Interesting song. The rhythm is catchy and the lyrics are memorable. A very good performance and a singer that looks charismatic and attractive. I would say this is a candidate for victory.
We would just like thank Nacho for sharing his opinions and furthermore, to state that these opinions are that of Nacho himself, and not of everyone at escXtra. Feel free to give your own opinion in the comments below!
