Morten Thomassen discussed today the entry of ITALY which reached 6th place in the 2022 Eurovision song contest. ESC Covers google translated it from Norwegian to English.
The location of the home country is probably the location I am most upset about.
Upset because I think this song ended way too high.
Not that there is anything wrong with the song, it is very nice and you can tell that someone thought it could be a home win.
However, that was before the artists Mahmood and especially Blanco started singing their song.
Rarely have you heard such sour and fake singing as during this performance, and what the audience got to see and hear on the final night was probably not the worst.
It is thus quite unimaginable that the juries rated this so highly and that two juries rated this at the top.
I almost think that you have to introduce mandatory earwax rinsing for the jury members before they do their job.
I can calm down a little on the complaints and say that they had good chemistry on stage and not unexpectedly had the audience in the hall with them on the notes.
This country is always automatically in the final and there always uses the San-Remo final to choose its artist.
There the winner is asked if they want to participate in ESC, then artists who participate have the focus on performing good music and not a song that can fit in ESC as you have in many other countries.
I can almost guarantee that they will come up with a good song next year, however I hope that the budget for vocal training is strengthened a little.
