The Cape Town singer Dirk Lazenby has covered the 2012 Eurovision song of Donny Montell Love is blind in Afrikaans as JY’S DIE EEN VIR MY (You are the one for me).
The day started off great when we received the latest two Eurovision covers. A singer from Cape Town, DIRK LAZENBY has recorded a full CD and on it will be two Eurovision covers.The CD is currently at the printers and once it becomes available, we will inform you about the details.
The two euro covers are
Lithuania 2012 Love is blind of Donny Montell which will be called JY’S DIE EEN VIR MY (you are the one for me)
Belarus 2012 We are the heroes of Litesound which will be called EK WIL JOU HELP WEES (I want to be your hero).
Andy Mikheev, the chief editor of ESCKaz website heard the two covers and said it is of the BEST ever to come out of South Africa.
Roy van der Merwe, the president of Eurovision South Africa loves both songs as well. but most know he just love covers and is not as objective when it comes to real world quality,which according to Andy these two covers are.
Dirk is still fairly unknown but this CD, if the other songs are of the same standard, is destined for big things.
A special thanks to Riaan Steyn who is helping Dirk to realize his dream with this CD.
Donny Montell from Lithuania has a new release.
Song 32: LITHUANIA
(9th in the grand final : 200 points)
Artist: Donny Montell
Song: I’ve Been Waiting for This Night
Music and Lyric: Jonas Thander, Beatrice Robertsson
Today we saw the return of three previous participants. Poli Genova (Bulgaria), Donny Montell (Lithuania) and Kaliopi (FYR Macedonia) all graced the Eurovision stage again.
Here at ESC Covers we have differing opinions. Roy van der Merwe prefers the new songs by the said artists. However, I prefer the 2012 entries by Donny Montell (Love Is Blind) and Kaliopi (Crno I Belo). But Poli’s new song for 2016 is better than her previous attempt in Na inat in 2011.
Over to you readers…what do you think?
