I’m glad this is representing us this year, the chorus is catchy AF! I think she stands a good chance of being in the top 15 with this!

I agree, this could do well with the international juries so even with poor televotes the UK could still do respectfully.

It really comes alive with the live performance, it's not a million miles away from Clean Bandit and she sounds like BETSY/Clare Maguire/Annie Lennox!

I'm really hopeful for our best result since Jade with this.

There has to be a revamp, but it needs to elevate it, not drown her out.

If they don't revamp it, then it stands no chances at all, but hey it's Eurovision so you never know :lol:

I think I get why they liked SuRie so much. All the drunk guys in the audience thought she's Annie Lennox.

Last place in televoting, for sure.
(Spain and Germany are sighing right now)

Okay-ish vocals and I like her self-confidence but that song is utterly horrendous.

haha i think i read that somewhere in twitter..

I guess she got big reception because she is very likable and her vocals were good compared to the big favorite of the night (Asanda). Also, it's very anthemic.

I was surprised but there were tons of retweets comparing her to Annie Lennox. :lol:
SuRie gives me a very basic EDM/pop song vibes, reminds of Lidia Isac's ''Falling Stars'' (Moldova 2016) or Tanja's ''Amazing'' (Estonia 2014). The floppage is real
