27th PLACE IN THE 2022 EUROVISION SONG CONTEST – CROATIA

CROATIA ended in 27th place and Morten Thomassen discussed that. ESC Covers google translated it from Norwegian to English.

To end up in 11th place in their semifinal is always sour, but when you lack 29 points to beat the country that came in 10th place, you are still lost in the battle for a final place. Our Croatian friend Mia Dimsic received this dubious honor in the first semifinal.

However, her position must be seen as a bit of a victory if you think about how thoroughly her song was slaughtered by the panel in Adresse Torino, in terms of results, they probably did not have their best year.

In terms of points, Mia got a little more points from the juries than from the people and good neighbors are always good to have, the Slovenes gave over 25% of all points this song got, you could say that it was their “Guilty Pleasure”.

Mostly she got points on the lower part of the scale so then you struggle when it is a final place that is the goal.

So why did she not reach that goal then, well I think there were many small streams here that struck.

The song itself is nice enough, vocals it was suitably steady, maybe more thin vocals at times.

For me, there was a little too much lack of intensity in the performance and what the three dancers did was probably more confusing than telling to those who watched.

Our Croatian winners have not qualified for the final since 2017 and are probably struggling a bit to find the form in this competition, maybe try something that is not too similar to the type of pop music we hear every day, but rather try something that sounds more Croatian next time ?

SECOND REHEARSALS OF COUNTRIES IN SEMI FINAL ONE – part 3

Morten Thomassen from Norway continues reporting on the rehearsals and  ESC Covers google translated his Norwegian comments into English.

You get Portugal in this round since they had to practice last today.

Croatia

After an extra long break because Portugal had their training postponed due to a covid outbreak with them, our Croatian friend was released. This is a sweet song, but she probably does not manage to bring out the potential in this song in any way. It gets too bland simply, and it does not help with an uninspired artist either.

Denmark

Our Danish friends who actually consist of two Swedes and two Danes should have because they try something that is very un-Danish. But, not all trials go equally well, despite the high pace, this was very tame stuff I’m afraid and it will probably hold hard for a final place this. The quiet opening sequence is actually the best part here.

Austria

90’s dance music obviously has a long life and now we have received visits from that period. Such party songs require one thing and that is a good vocalist. It’s our Austrian girlfriend far from being actually. It’s been a while since anyone has heard such bad vocals given. Sad manages this, she picks up a little vocally, but not much when she gets to practice a little more.

Greece

Someone has figured out how to perform such a song and so absolutely Norwegian Amanda has figured it out. This is magically good and here it is delivered with so much intensity and energy that you are almost put out a bit. It is very possible that this is the Norwegian participant who can take the trophy home. And you can like that.

Portugal

Finally they got to try. They have one outbreak of the disease you know and it may seem like it is one of the backing singers. I like the song, it is super delicious and comfortable, but it happens so damn little in the song. You kind of wait for something to happen and unfortunately it does not.
